Tiger Pregame Show Blog Turns 5 Years Old On July 6th!

Tiger Pregame Show Blog Turns 5 Years Old! 
 By Scott Rhymer 

First, the big disclaimer. I have never made money on The Tiger Pregame Show Blog. I run the blog to help promote the Tiger Pregame Show, WCCP programming, Clemson University, and Clemson University Athletics….not to make money. 

Most importantly, I run the blog daily because of my love for Clemson and my hope those that read the blog learn more about our great University, Athletic Programs and Clemson History. I also hope that promotion will play some small part in current affairs in our quest to win a 2nd National Championship in Football, a Final 4 in Basketball, and a College World Series in Baseball. 

The Tiger Pregame Show Blog was created in the summer of 2011 to help promote The Tiger Pregame Show on WCCP and to promote Historic Clemson Historical Pictures and Football Letterman. 

In 5 years, the blog has received over 472,000 views from 10 countries including the US, Germany, China, Portugal, France, Ukraine, Brazil, United Kingdom, Mauritius, and Poland…all at no expense to those that visit the site and read the posts. 

While the radio version of The Tiger Pregame Show has been in existence since the 2003 season, the blog itself has only been in existence for 5 years. 

The Clemson Historical Photos are posted 365 days a year, each with a short story of explanation to frame the significance of the photo. These photos provide the daily content to the blog. 

During Dark Territory (the time between the end of Clemson Baseball and the first football game of the season) the blog provides a daily Clemson Letterman of the Day with a short biography for that player. 

During football season, updates on broadcast times and locations for The Tiger Pregame Show are provided as well to keep Tiger fans informed of where they can “begin their game day experience”. 

On occasion, when the mood strikes, an editorial will appear as I feel needed based on what I see going on with Clemson Athletics. 

Updates to the blog are provided daily on The Tiger Pregame Show Facebook feed as well as intermittent updates from the @Tigerpregame Twitter feed. 

The Tiger Pregame Show on Facebook has over 4,800 people who “like” the page and the Twitter feed has over 6,100 followers. 

As The Tiger Pregame Show blog turns 5 years old this week, I ask that you help provide those that may not know of the blog a link to the below Social Media Feeds and the URL for the Blog. 

Information on this year’s Tiger Pregame Show will be released soon…as it will mark the 14th season of the show with the season opener being my 171st consecutive broadcast of the show!

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…
