Once a Tiger, Always a Tiger

"There's something in these hills that you and I can't define and others can't understand." - Joe Sherman

This past Friday night, I went to the Panther's first preseason game against the Bills. It might have well been a preseason game against Clemson for all of the Tigers on the field and orange in the stands.

It reminded me of exactly why I love Clemson so much.

You don't just go to Clemson, graduate, and move on with your life. You're Clemson forever. End of story.

There were so many Clemson fans in the stadium just because not only were five of our own playing for the Bills, but two of those five are hands down two of the greatest players to ever run down the hill. A lot of people showed up wearing solid orange to the game just because the only reason they were there was to see CJ & Sammy play again. Every Clemson fan, regardless of whether or not they were Bills fans, were cheering every single time that CJ or Sammy did something on the field.

... which was confusing for those of us who are actually Panther fans because we were clapping for almost every play.

CJ & Sammy did not play together at Clemson so it was something special to see them on the same field together playing for the same team.

It was a great night and I am even more ready for football season to officially be here. Less than three weeks to go!

CJ Spiller!

Sammmmmmy Watkins!

See Sammy catch. See Sammy run. See Sammy earn some yards!

When you have FIVE Clemson Tigers on the field & you're in the stands with other Clemson alumni/students... you have to take a picture with the Tiger Rag. No excuses.

Now if only we could get CJ & Sammy back for another couple of seasons at Clemson...
