Wayne Simmons, John Johnson, Doug Brewster, Jesse Hatcher can't be left off the list and Arthur Bussie would have been one of the all best had Danny never been ousted.


In place of who though? Hatcher was great but was a Jr.

He's not the 5th best LB to play at Clemson since 70***

Kirkland and Adams are 1a and 1b IMO... Everybody else is a distant 2nd.

Ashley Sheppard was a good one too.

Where does Johnny Rembert fit in ? He still holds the most career int's by a linebacker I think. Had a 10 yr career with the Pats - all pro bowler. Guess the only downside is he was a juco (I think)...

Good Post!!!

Nah, just a tough call not putting Jeff Davis as number 1... Actually not sure I can even rank them because they were all the Best of the Best!!!!! Just good people too. other teams through the years have had some really great players but you look at the Tigers through the years at all positions - They're just "Good People". Wow, we are fortunate to be Tiger fans.

Johnny Rembert & Jessie Hatcher = good as any we've had

Both were JUCOs, but they gave us two full years, and I believe they probably played about as many snaps at starting LB as Stephone Anthony and some others.

Rembert was a good pro also at NE.***

rated, but out produced them when he got his opportunity and will have a longer pro career than either.


Hey, aren't lists illegal over here?

I thought Andy was pretty dog-gone good too. Had to play behind LT for the giants though.

There were several not mentioned---The Freak, Abdullugh, Chad Carson, Henry Walls, and many more----JD was the best with the Termite a step away.

If you go back to 1970 you have to mention Larry Hefner. He went on to play for the Packers at a time when few Clemson players went pro.

Also going back to the 70's you have to mention Jimmy Williamson as well. He was drafted by the Falcons but got hurt in training camp.

Moral of this question is you just can’t pick 10. Too many good players.

All great players and deserve to be on an expanded list. My all time favorite pairing were 1. Randy Scott and Bubba Brown. They were keys to the re-emergence of Tiger Football.
2. Jeff Davis and Danny Tripplett
3. Boulware, Anthony and Goodson (although probably a better unit in 2016)
4. Johnny Rembert and Ed McDaniel
