Tiger Pregame Show To Broadcast From Bobby Dodd Stadium Thursday!

The Tiger Pregame Show, a game day tradition for Clemson football fans since 2003, will broadcast from Historic Grant Field and Bobby Dodd Stadium Thursday for our 174th consecutive show!



Broadcast time this Thursday is from 1:30-4:30 p.m.  Fans can listen at WCCP 105.5 FM in the Upstate of South Carolina, wccpfm.com anywhere in the world, and via the Tune In App (it is free) from their phones if they are driving down to Atlanta or tailgating in the Atlanta area.




Scott Rhymer, in his 14th year as Host, will once again anchor the show to bring Clemson fans all of the information, interviews, and insight to prepare for the game.  Rhymer has anchored the show on WCCP from its birth, giving Clemson fans a familiar voice and perspective on what has happened, what will happen, and the implications of all things Clemson when it comes to the upcoming games.  



Scott Cole joins Scott Rhymer this year as Co-Host.  Cole has recently joined the WCCP crew with the host of his own show, The Scott Cole Show, which periodically fills the time slot of former Tiger Pregame Show Co-Host, Roy Philpott.


Cole has nearly two decades of broadcasting experience and is currently a Host of NFL Network's "Madden NFL Live".  A very talented and versatile broadcaster, Cole has already been used in an on-air utility role at WCCP as well as several behind the scenes projects.


The Tiger Pregame Show will tap into the continued emergence of Social Media as part of Clemson fan’s game day expectations, with several segments engaging fans via Twitter

“No longer do Clemson fans have to sit beside a radio in order to listen to the show”, Rhymer points out.  

“When driving to the game Thursday or working, our fans can stream the show via their smart phones, making the show as portable as the listener wants to be on game day," Rhymer explains.  


“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.  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.”

During the game week, fans can also nominate themselves as the "Clemson Fan Of The Week" via @1055TheRoar,  @tigerpregame and @scottcoleshow on Twitter.  The winner each week will join Scott and Scott during the Bottom Line Segment as a 3rd host of the show on air!

The Tiger Pregame Show format 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 the show include up-to-the-minute game day weather conditions, Top 25 Report, ACC and SEC Game Breakdowns, Injury Reports for both Clemson and their opponent, Opposing Team's Perspective, and a historical look back at this day in Clemson football history.  There will also be segments with current Clemson football players that give fans a more personal look at the players behind the face mask and helmet.

Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney, Defensive Coordinator Brent Venables, and Co-Offensive Coordinators Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott will offer their input on the show.

Player interviews will take place each week to give fans an idea of what the vibe of the players inside the program is as they prepare for the upcoming opponent.

Don Munson, the  Voice of the Tigers, will join the show live each week to give his unique perspective inside the football program. 

And, just like in the previous 13 years, the show will close the final hour with the Keys to the Game and game day predictions, this year with Scott Rhymer and Scott Cole.
