August 10th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

1976 Clemson vs. Carolina View From Press Box

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photos are from the 1976 season and show Death Valley prior to the Tigers coming down the hill vs. South Carolina.

The view is from the top of the press box before the South Upper Deck was built. You can also notice the Block C on the 50 yard line.

Red Parker was trying to save his job this day against the Gameocks. At this point in the season, a season that could only be described as "grueling," the Tigers were 2-6-2. The good news is that the Tigers won that day 28-9 over the Gamecocks.

Some felt that Parker may have saved his job, but on December 1, 1976, Parker got the news that he was being terminated.

Below is a flyer that appeared during this time showing the discontent of the student body and fan base with the athletic administration at Clemson.
