My Son graduated from Clemson & graduated next at UGa Law..

and even though he ”could” growl & bark at the same time, he prefers & supports Clemson 110% All-In..

but he does love his Uga experience, diploma, friends & beautiful Athens.

Students rarely have strong feelings towards the teams of their graduate schools. I went to Clemson and am a huge Tigers fan. I could not care less how my law school's sports team does. I went to one game because I wanted to see the history of it but left after the first quarter. Part of that may be because their football team is terrible (my high school could likely beat them). But all my friends went on to get PhDs or professional degrees, and none of them care about the success of the athletics of their graduate schools. It's entirely an undergrad kind of thing.


Grad school over Undergrad?

I lot of people go to Duke for grad school and become huge Duke Basketball fans. I deplore that sort of move and the people who make it.

I'm one of those people... Clemson grad and a Tiger through and through, but as grad students at Duke, you get season tickets if you do a one weekend "campout" in the fall. Behind the nets on both ends are grad students. Along the floor opposite the bench are undergrad. Was there two years 2016-2017 season and 2017-2018 season. Its hard not to be a Duke b ball fan after seeing two UNC Duke games in Cameron. That arguably is the hardest ticket to get in all of sports. Cameron holds 6K fans. I was happy for Clemson beating Duke this year, but overall indifferent to the outcome.

I am excited to see how C Brice does next year leading the Bluedevils and I hope we play them in the ACCCG.

I am an IPTAY season ticket holder for 6 years with two seats in the upper deck. I bleed orange, but I have to say I became a Duke b ball fan when I was in grad school there. Campus isn't too bad either.

over the years, I have heard people use a number of adjectives to describe Athens, Georgia but beautiful was never one of them.

I've never been to Athens but I wonder if it is as beautiful
as Columbia? Probably not but there is not many cities as
beautful and breath taking as the Capital City.

speaking only for myself...as my handle implies, i went to CU undergrad and U. Florida for grad school.

Spent about the same amount of time at both, but was always and always will be a Tiger.

Fortunately these two teams don't ever seem to play each other, in much of any sport. I'd be pulling for CU 100% though.

That said I enjoyed Gainesville tremendously, met my Gator wife there, and my oldest is there now. it was great to experience a different atmosphere for grad school.

I sent one daughter to the United States Air Force Academy, and then the Air Force sent her to Johns Hopkins. I'm not sure she has fond feelings about either, but she is proud of being an Academy Grad.

I sent my son to the University of Denver and then to the University of Miami. He preferred DU.

I went to Clemson, then the Air Force Institute of Technology, then to Utah State University. And I taught at USAFA. Still emotionally attached to Clemson.

Nothing wrong with that Bill, at least he has a good education that will allow him to give his family a good life. Tech school is all I was smart enough to attend and afford, and that training didn't help me to get rich. I preach college education to any young person that will listen, and the most important thing I say to them, once they rush themselves into having a family, there won't be any chances of going to college unless they marry a rich spouse, and as a man I just couldn't feel good about living on a woman's money doing what I should have done when I graduated HS, and was to go straight to a good accredited college to be well educated!!! Good for your Son for doing the right things!!!

I had one son who went to and graduated from Clemson. I had one daughter, who broke my heart by going to Winthrop, but after a year regained her senses and transferred to Clemson where she got her degree.
Two great kids, now adults.

I went to and graduated with a Occupational Associates Degree from UTI- Universal Technical Institute in Phoenix AZ. When I went to school there, it was rated the best Tech School in the US of it kind, and it has grown a bunch since my time there.

I was Die hard Clemson before I went to Phoenix, and I have never pulled for ASU or U of A, and I wore my Clemson Gear proudly the 3 years I went to school and lived in Phoenix, AZ!!! Once that Clemson orange gets in your blood, there isn't a chance of it ever coming out, it's there for life!!!!

one says he is dead set on The Citadel. I will be equally......extremely proud of both. Fortunately I will be able to pull for both teams in football as well.....but NOTHING trumps my tigers.

Can't speak to kids but I personally attended 6 different schools as an undergraduate and more than that as a grad student. I graduated from Winthrop but am a Clemson fan because I attended there as a bride (lived in the lovely prefabs) and my husband and daughter are both Clemson grads.
