I had mixed feelings in Jan. 82., last night I was kinda angry for a few hours. At the end of the day Taters are insufferable whether they win or lose and the internet has made that more visable.

So no different now than then correct?

There was several drives that should have ended. As well as 2 touchdowns that should not have happened at least on the plays they happened on due to illegal picks.

Anyhow If Bo never goes out Bama stops them again regardless of the refs bribery.

They not only beat the best college football team in history, they did it during what many would consider a dynasty. This is easily the greatest achievement in the history of Clemson athletics (and possibly the school) in the most competitive era in college football history. So this one, along with the day and age in which we live, does make this one harder to swallow and deal with.
Ok I am gonna disagree with you there. It's amazing to me how many games Clemson won this year because the refs extended drives for them. It takes so much focus out of a defense to stop a team that supposedly so great to be screwed by a horrible call and then turn around and have to do it again. Clemson has lived this way for as long as can remember watching their games which I must say has only been the past few years.

They have always prioritized football where as we have had decent success over just about all sports. By prioritize I mean they have done things off the books to make their football team relevant. If we have then we are either really bad at it or we don't do those things yet. I don't see any thing wrong with doing things off the books for wins considering all the other teams winning a bunch do it get caught and keep competing without missing a beat.

Default Re: How did USC/fans handle 1981?

In '81 I had a Clempson fan friend who painted his room orange and collected those effing Orange Crush cans with the tater paw on them. He was as obnoxious about it as a pre-teen could get. I don't have anyone like that around me now, so it won't be as hard to deal with day-to-day, but it's still pretty damn nauseating.

Meanwhile, I'm just thankful for George Rogers giving us the one thing we can still hold over them in football (sorry Deshaun, no Heisman for you), and Ray Tanner for the back-to-back nattys in baseball. It's just too bad baseball gets about 1/10 the mindshare of football around here. It's not much at a time like this, but it's something.

Default Re: How did USC/fans handle 1981?

Graduated from high school in 1981, I didn't really dig the whole redneck farmer school thing so I went to Carolina when everyone else was headed to Taterville. Of course their cheating tainted the MNC and it would not surprise me if some cheating is not uncovered again. These taters are a win at any cost group, always have been. Always will be...

The story came out in '88, the alleged scandal was from 84 to 87 according to the SI story and Tommy Chaikin.

We reacted in 1981 the same way that we will now - like Gamecocks. Keep fighting and do something about it.

There seems to have been a malaise of complacency in the last few years. We had a good stretch that encompassed the five-peat and the three 11 win seasons, and then got a little lazy. The five-peat, meanwhile, drove Clemson to where they are now. Three straight losses, the 56-7 score and the natty should be plenty of motivation for us to work harder and get the upper hand again.

We were more than happy knowing that we were in the best conference and that the likes of Alabama would beat Clemson if they got to the title game. Now, we know that beating Clemson and keeping them down is our job - and we will get back on it.

Too much Chicken Shi ttery going on.
I hope it makes our players sick seeing their flag on the dome.
I hope it makes them sick with a parade a block away from campus.
I hope it motivates them to shove it back in their face the next few years.
I hope it motivates them to go out, put in the work and win a national title for themselves.

Enough of this belly aching...can't change the fact they won one...but our players and coaches can keep their nose to the pavement, keep working, keep building, sign those special players when they come around (Xavier Thomas, Dakereon Joyner, Josh Belk, Derion Kendrick) and then capitalize on the opportunity.

WE know Muschamp and staff are putting in the work. Heck, if Dabo Swinney can con kids to go to a cow pasture with a mudhole, Will Muschamp can get kids to come to the Capital City, play for the Flagship University of hte state, and do something that has never been done in the history of the football program.
