We encourage everyone to come to Death Valley early this Saturday, as it is a 12:10 p.m. kickoff. TigerWalk will begin at 10:00 a.m. It will also be Military Appreciation Day, one of the great days we have at Memorial Stadium each year. This is a project John Seketa and his staff have been working on all year and it promises to be another great tribute to our military tradition.
Just a few reminders: 1. Please arrive early to avoid traffic delays in getting to your assigned parking lot or street. Parking lots open at 6:00 a.m. 2. Military Appreciation Day is full of events honoring our proud military heritage. (Displays on Bowman Field, additional participants in the parade and a halftime tribute to the sacrifices made by all our men and women in uniform are just a few of the special enhancements that make up Military Appreciation Day.) 3. To avoid long delays at the gates to Memorial Stadium, please leave backpacks, large bags and other prohibited items at your vehicle. Large portable stadium seats are prohibited, especially those that have armrests and other parts that take up too much space and cause problems for your neighbors beside, behind and in front of your seat in the stadium. 4. $10 youth and $24 adult tickets are still available for Saturday’s game. Call 1-800-CLEMSON to order today.
Saturday’s game is obviously very important and the team needs your support from the opening kickoff, if not during pregame. We realize the early start time is not favorable and last weekend’s game was disappointing. But there is still much for this team to play for. Although we are not eliminated from the ACC race, we certainly understand we have some difficult contests remaining. Nothing can make Clemson prouder than to support these players and show the true Clemson spirit beginning this Saturday.
We also want to position ourselves to reach a bowl game, which would be important for a team that will have 16 starters returning next season.
The home field advantage has been a big factor for Clemson historically, and Coach Swinney is 12-3 in Memorial Stadium, so let’s provide that advantage for our team this weekend.
See you Saturday…bright and early and remember to wear orange.
Go Tigers! Bill D’Andrea
