The 186th Edition Of Tiger Pregame Show In Photos

The Tiger Pregame Show #186 In Photos

We wrapped up the 186th edition of The Tiger Pregame Show last Saturday, and with it came some great additions!

First, how could you ask for a more beautiful morning in Clemson for a home opener!?  The view from our stage as the sun rose over Memorial Stadium.

Speaking of stage, our new setup, shared with our good friends from The Tiger Tailgate Show is simply amazing!  105.5 FM, in conjunction with JMI Sports, is now the official network host for Clemson Athletics, adding to the distinction of being the "Flagship Station for Clemson Sports".

Kelly Gramlich is now in her 2nd year as co-host.  Is there a coincidence that when Kelly comes on as co-host, Clemson wins a National Championship?!  Kelly is pictured with co-host, Scott Rhymer

We always enjoy hosting members of IPTAY for our weekly IPTAY Segment.  Pictured from left to right:  Assistant Director of IPTAY Reed Kramer, Scott Rhymer, Kelly Gramlich, Assistant Director of IPTAY Lauren Gaulin, and Assistant Director of IPTAY Jason Wilson.

These "Jersey Boys" stopped by the show.  They are brothers and embark on a yearly week long sports binge.  This year, they are doing 10 games in 7 days and Clemson vs. Kent State was their first stop.  On Saturday alone they were doing Clemson/Kent State, then UGA/Appalachian State in Athens,  and finishing the day with Florida State/Alabama in Atlanta!

We always enjoy our Clemson Fan of the Week on each week with us.  This week is was Kim Reid, and she did a great job on air with us during the Bottom Line Segment.  By the way, Kim's game day prediction was 56-7....very close and better than Kelly and Scott's picks!  Kim is pictured with Scott Rhymer.

Auburn Comes To Town

This week, we welcome Auburn to Clemson for a massive match-up between two Top 15 teams in Death Valley.

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…
