Reggie Merriweather

Reggie played for North Augusta High School (S.C.) and came to Clemson as a highly rated recruit after an outstanding senior season in which he rushed for 2580 yards and 29 TD's.

After redshirting in 2002, he played in all 13 games in 2003 on special teams and had 16 carries as a tailback.

In 2004, despite having only started six games, he finished the season with the most carries (136) and led the team in rushing yards (670), averaging 4.9 per carry. Merriweather scored 11 TD's in 2004, 3 of which came in a OT victory against then #10 Miami in the Orange Bowl and 3 more against South Carolina in the year of the infamous brawl.

In 2005, Reggie again started six games while James Davis started the other six. He gained 736 yards on 149 carries, averaging 4.8 per carry and had 7 TD's. Notable games included three 100+ yard performances in a row against Temple, Duke and Georgia Tech.

Merriweather scored two TD's against MD that year with a 7.5 average yard per carry and 3 TD's against Duke. In 2006, Davis was the starter in all 13 games and freshman C.J. Spiller was also on the field along with Demerick Chancellor.

Today’s photos are from the 1940’s and shows Clemson Cadets having a great time during winter weather on campus. The above photo shows Cadets in a snow ball fight on campus.

The snow always creates a gathering of people to have fun and enjoy each other’s company.


With classes cancelled, most Cadets simply found things to do outside in the snow and ice.

Class Of 1908 At 25th Reunion


(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photo is of the Class of 1908.

In 1933, the Class of 1908 was having their 25th reunion and took this photo. I wonder if these folks had any idea that 80 years later their photo would be splashed around to thousands of people on the thing called “Internet”!

It also makes you wonder how people will view our pictures taken today on the technology they have 80 years from now.

9 Days Until Kickoff! Dark Territory Clemson Letterman Of The Day

9 Days Until Kickoff!
Dark Territory Clemson Letterman Photo Of The Day
Ben Hall


Hall played tight end at Clemson and reached the pinnacle of his career in the 2003 game against South Carolina in the 63-17 win.
Hall’s Clemson career was marked by being underused in the offensive scheme and was further checkered by a stint where he left the team for personal reasons.

Hall was the first tight end at Clemson since Jim Riggs to be the focal point (at least on paper) for the offense.
