Tiger Pregame Show Prepping For Georgia Tech







The Tiger Pregame Show Will Get You Ready As The Clemson Tigers Invade Atlanta, GA

The Tigers invade Atlanta,  GA looking to earn a Tombstone in a critical ACC matchup between Top 25 teams.


The Tiger Pregame Show, a game day tradition for Clemson football fans on Saturdays, will broadcast its 152nd consecutive show Saturday to prepare fans for the Georgia Tech Game!

The show, as always, will be broadcast on WCCP 105.5 FM and wccpfm.com.  Broadcast times for Saturday's show will be from 6:00-9:00 a.m. as Scott Rhymer will get Tiger fans ready for the 19th ranked Tigers and 21st ranked Rambling Wreck.

“Atlanta has been a tough place for Clemson to win recently”, Rhymer states. "The Tigers will need to play well to win, but they will have plenty of support as over 5,000 Clemson fans will make the trip to Atlanta."
 
Clemson fans making the trip to Atlanta will also be able to listen to the Tiger Pregame Show on WCCP 105.5 FM until approximately Commerce, GA. At that point, Tiger fans will need to stream the show via the WCCP web site and app.

The show on Saturday will also tap into the continued emergence of Social Media as part of Clemson fan’s game day expectations. 

“No longer do Clemson fans have to sit beside a radio in order to listen to the show”, Rhymer points out.  “While you are out and about Saturday or in Atlanta tailgating, our fans can stream the show via the WCCP App on their smart phones”.

“But that is not the only reason we embrace the technology.  In addition to streaming the show, we also want to engage fans during the show to allow them to give their opinions and insight into the show that we can use while broadcasting this Saturday.  That’s the really exciting part of embracing the technology as it allows fans to do more than just listen.  It allows them to engage.”

The Tiger Pregame Show format will continue broadcasting 6 hours prior to kickoff and ends 3 hours prior to kickoff, which means this week's show is from 6:00-9:00.  The show will continue to offer in-depth analysis of the upcoming game, focusing on X’s and O’s of what fans should expect to see on the field during the game.

Segments for Saturady include up to the minute game day weather conditions, Top 25 Report, ACC and SEC Game Breakdowns, Injury Reports for both Clemson and Georgia Tech, and a historical look back at this day in Clemson football history.

Former Tiger Running Back Reggie Merriweather will join the show for a segment as will WCCP's Roy Philpott.

Don Munson, the new Voice of the Tigers, will join the show live each week to give his unique perspective inside the football program and final preparations for the Tech game.  

And, just like in the previous 11 years, the show will close the final hour with the Keys to the Game and game day predictions.

Each week, Dabo Swinney, Chad Morris, and Brent Venables will provide audio interviews to set the stage for the game.  The show will also have the key Clemson players on air so that they can give their perspective from the field.

One of the great things about football season is that it offers the opportunity to welcome people to Clemson (either for the first time or after a long time away).  

At Clemson, we believe that we have something special and are excited to showcase that special college football environment each time we host a visitor.  Our goal  is very simple:  To be incredible hosts to our visitors and provide the ultimate game day experience.



There is an additional buzz in the air for Week 2 at Clemson, as we host the the Auburn Tigers and their fans for what should be an electric game day weekend with two Top 15 football teams in an ACC vs. SEC match-up in prime time!  We hope that your trip here will be exciting, memo…

May 3rd Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Construction Of The North Upper Deck In 1983

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
Today’s photos are a series of shots during the construction of the North Upper Deck in 1983.

The North Upper Deck is comprised of 22,500 yards of concrete, 2,200 Tons of reinforcing steel, 3,000 tons of asphalt, 5,800 gallons of paint, and 60,000 pounds of aluminum seating

The North Upper Deck height is 13.36 stories and the length is 560 feet. The total cost of the North Upper Deck was $13.5 million

To illustrate the quality of the investment of the upper deck.  The $13.5 million dollar investment is recovered in just 3 years (7 home games per year) in ticket sales.  Each game Clemson sells out the North Upper Deck, over $600,000 goes towards Clemson Athletics.

The North Upper Deck is slightly larger than the South Upper Deck. The reason for this is simple. Engineers had more room to build behind the North Upper Deck than they did behind the South Upper Deck (with Cemetery Hill behind the South). This al…
