THE TIDE AND TIGER PRESENTS: ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CLEMSON FOOTBALL.


Other than the facts that Auburn has beaten Clemson 14 times in a row and Walter Merritt Riggs, the "Father of Clemson Football," was an Auburn man, here's all you need to know about Clemson football....

Clemson has a highly publicized tradition during its football team's entrance to Memorial Stadium, which Clemson, with a straight face, describes as "The Most Exciting 25 Seconds in College Football."  After the players enter the east side of the stadium, where THE HILL (duh duh dum!!) is located, they gather at the top of THE HILL (duh duh dum!!) and stand around some rock until a cannon sounds, at which time the band begins to play the fear-inspiring song Tiger Rags (whoo who!!), and the players run down THE HILL (duh duh dum!!).  The word "exciting" simply does not do the tradition justice, I tell you.
Video and more after the break...




Clemson has another tradition.  Its fans cry like babies.
Seriously, even Chris Fowler, Craig James, and, of all people, Jesse Palmer rag on this guy.



Pure gold around the 45 second mark...

And that's all you need to know about Clemson football.

  1. All you need to know is Auburn fans are the biggest cry babies in all of college football. Clemson don't even come close. The 2008 Iron Bowl they cried like weiners. But hey a 36-0 shutout should and did make them cry.

  3. I've never quite figured out how a loss to La. Monroe and blowing a 24 point lead are part of "The Process" or how either is considered as an acceptible return on a $5 milloin investment. Maybe a Bammur Fan could explain it and enlighten us all.

    I have never heard so much crying and bellyaching as I did after bama's 24-0 collapse last year. My ears still hurt!
