Tiger Pregame Show To Honor Clemson Military Vets With Their Stories On Air And We Need Your Help!

The Tiger Pregame Show, a game day tradition for Clemson football fans on Saturdays since 2003, will broadcast from the Shadows of the Chapman Grandstands this Saturday for our 179th consecutive show!



This Saturday is Military Appreciation Day and we need your help!  During the show, we typically use transitions from the Clemson Game Notes to move between one segment to another while on air.

To honor Clemson's Military Heritage and to support Military Appreciation Day, the Tiger Pregame Show wants to use mini-stories of Clemson fan's Military service as transitions this week  instead of the traditional game notes.

How can you help?  Very simple.

Email us your military story in less than 100 words. This can by your military experience, a family member, or a friend.  If you know of a Clemson fan that has served, or is currently serving, we want their story to use as a transition on the air throughout the show this Saturday.

Email the 100 word or less bio to scottrhymer.tps@gmail.com and we will use it on the air Saturday.

Example:
The Simpson's would like to recognize Albert Simpson, who served in the United States Navy during World War II.  Mr. Simpson received several commodations during his service.  

Albert returned from the war, started a family, and lived in Lancaster, South Carolina until his death in 1994.  Albert was a lifelong Clemson fan and IPTAY Member, passing on his love to Clemson to his 4 children and 13 grandchildren.

Use the example above as a guide, but feel free to modify as needed.  

Broadcast time this Saturday is from 9:30-12:30 and these recognitions will be used throughout the show live on the air.  
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).

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.  

"Not only is it an honor to host The Tiger Pregame Show, but the opportunity I have been blessed with over these 14 years to meet so many great Clemson fans has given me a lifetime of memories", Rhymer said recently.


Kelly Gramlich will join Scott Rhymer as our new full time Co-Host.  Kelly got her start at WCCP 105.5 The Roar in February 2015, appearing on Out of Bounds twice a week. She became the full-time producer and co-host of the show in May 2016. Gramlich also serves as the color commentator for Clemson women’s basketball broadcasts on the station.


Prior to 105.5 The Roar, Gramlich was a student assistant in the Clemson Athletic Communications Department, serving as one of the media contacts for the Clemson women’s basketball team. In addition to her work at Clemson, Gramlich worked for the WNBA’s Chicago Sky in the summer of 2015 as a public relations intern.
Gramlich is a two-time graduate of Clemson University, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies in 2014 and a Master’s degree in Communication, Technology and Society in 2016. While at Clemson, Gramlich was a member of the Clemson women’s basketball team from 2011-14 and holds the record for most three-pointers made in a single game with eight.
This season is set up to be magical...so don't miss a minute of the season and start your game day experience with The Tiger Pregame 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…
