I'm pleased to present today's Historic Clemson Photo, submitted by long time TigerNet member Mintaka®.

These historic posts will each have a sponsor with a very brief video message. After playing, the update and photos will replace the video.

Thank you very much, and enjoy! --Crump and B-Meist

In 1968, the Tiger's last opponent in Fike was Georgia Tech. The photo above was taken at that last game, ending a long run in the Fike gym.

Sometimes confusion surrounds Fike as to when it was built. In some publications the university lists Fike as being built in 1940, which is partly correct.

The gym at Fike actually goes all the way back to an era prior to the depression. The above and below photos show the construction of the gym in 1929. In those days it was simply called the "New Field House." On January 7, 1930 the New Field House was dedicated and opened as the Tigers took on the Furman. The captain of that Clemson team was Bob Jones.
