Recruiting weekend/purple tops white pants

Looking at all of the pictures from our big Junior weekend, it seems every player was trying on/taking pictures in this combo. Personally I've always been a fan of the purple and white combination and hope to see it broken out for a game. If I remember correctly the last time we wore it was against Maryland in 2008.

I love it as well. Also I wouldn't mind breaking the orange pants for champ games tradition

No way. Orange pants need to stay.

We wear purple for the Military Appreciation

game, and that is it. The purple uniforms didn't come out in modern history until 1996 in celebration of 100 years of Clemson football. Before that, purple had not been a part of any combination for decades.

Dabo has repeatedly said we will not wear anything other than Orange and White , other than the Military Appreciation Game. He said when TB was HC the week to week talk from the players about uniform combinations was a distraction he didn't want for his teams.

This is absolutely not true. In 91 or 92, Clemson wore purple/white for the game against NC State. As for 96, while I cannot say for certain about purple jerseys (after my days at Clemson), but the 100th anniversary celebration was against UGA and those were blue jerseys with the blue/orange stripped helmets.

We wore purple in the 1992 Citrus Bowl vs. Cal.

^^Purple Jersey made their debut in 92 bowl game

We played and got throttled by California in the Citrus Bowl. Hatfield should have burned those jerseys then and there.

For the celebration of 100 years, we wore a throwback uniform. Navy helmets, orange jersey and blue plants. Played UGA.


Since we already wear purple for Military Appreciation game

I have always thought we could wear the purple jerseys with the white pants for that game like we do with the orange jerseys and white pants for other home games.

When are we wearing Chrome everything?

Purple Jersey, White Pants, Chrome Helmets w Orange Paw... that would look awesome. And never happen...


I wasn’t going to be the one who posted about this, but

I’m glad you did. I agree, the kids definitely like it and so do I. I pray we'll see our boys in this combo soon!

Any combination of orange tops and purple bottoms or purple tops and orange bottoms needs to die and stay in the Bowden era. Looks like a high school team. I think the purple and white pants does look clean but with an orange helmet I don't love the combo. I think orange on white and white on white is great. I don't love the orange britches but I do love what they represent and what it means to break them out.
