We've come a long way. I don't think Joey is doing the same workouts as they did back then.

Get rid of one of the upper decks.

Perhaps dropping general admission on the hill to $5 for kids and 7 for adults might be better. Open the gates after the first quarter.

“The spirit starts on a community level, when the Tigers come back for Fall practice. Each Tiger gridder is invited to the home of a Clemson supporter for a fine, home-cooked meal.”

Man, times have changed.

They mentioned Shaun Weatherly as the 81 Miss univ, and I think the visitor side upper deck (which wasn't shown) was built in 83?


Duh, Ok, video says 81

but now my question is, pre National Champions? I don't think it was mentioned in the video, so maybe after Shawn but before Orange Bowl?


Shawn Weatherly is a babe

What's up with the speed lifting? Was that the supposed to be the correct way to do it back then? They were really cranking them out and not even worrying about breathing. LOL.

I also remember when the team had their special diner below Schilleter. They reportedly has steak and lobster everyday. Us normal civilians didn't have lobster as an option :)

That's also when Danny wanted a dorm just for his players, and Max and him had another fallout.. Danny was soon let go. What a shocking day to be on campus. The players basically revolted to the press, aand s fans didn't understand how they could possibly get rid of Danny Freakin' Ford. When Hatfield was hired, I remember me and my friends trying to convince ourselves he would be successful at Clemson.

Thanks for the video man!

thanks for sharing. Immediately recognized narrator as John Facenda. He narrated many NFL highlight films back in the 60s-80s. Anyway...thought it interesting he was narrator...very professional.

strength training has really changed over the years.

You should never chalk up to conspiracy what you can reliably attribute to stupidity. Because stupidity is a much more powerful force in the course of human events.


Pretty cool. I didn't realize I was in it (1st Friday scene)

So I guess all the reporting and posts about how Clemson “doesn’t have a training table” prior to the new facilities was not accurate?

Thanks. That was awesome. I was a junior that year, and I recognized a lot of the faces, just can't remember their names, except Shawn W, and I think Sherri the homecoming queen. Pretty sure I dated them both. Yeah.

Man how things have changed. I noticed that Tigerrag sounded different in that -more like LSU’s version now - didn’t realize it had changed so much through the years (maybe the producer used the wrong audio).

I got to Clemson in 86 and always heard the food was great (and heard rumors about the steaks) in the Schlieter basement. I suspect what they have now trumps it - though obviously a lot healthier than it was back then.

Thanks for sharing.

And most likely, the workouts were "In Season" workouts. They used to do Bench, Squats, Power Cleans, etc. as well.
