Strobe lights were very distracting and I noticed them too. Definitely would be a problem in the SEC. Also, don't even wanna think about the traffic leaving the stadium any more. It took 2.5 hrs just to get out of Clemson.

Bottom line..Clemson sucks.

Oh my sweet gentle Jesus. We sat in the parking lot for TWO HOURS. Not one car moved. And much to my surprise, when we finally got out there was a cop directing traffic! What the hell was he doing all that time?!

Was it the guy who wrote Dabo the ticket? If so, that could have been the problem......

I'm pretty sure the band was mic'ed up because the sound was definitely coming through the speakers. Also, on multiple occassions, the band would still be playing after we were lined up on the line of scrimmage. I'm sure DT was having a hard time audibling over the band coming through the speakers.

Default Re: Clemson's use of strobe scoreboards on third down

I can tell none of you went to UK game, UK has the same lights and they did the same thing, my eyes couldn't focus at all and I told my wife "I don't see how they play with those crazy blue lights flashing & moving" and I told her during the clemsux game "look they have the same lights as UK".

But your right, they shouldn't be used and can cause the visiting team problems the way they use them.

I love the fact that it takes 3 hours for the traffic to clear out, it gave me plenty of time to taunt all those tiger fans as they drove by. We we're blasting sandstorm on perimeter road until 2am.

not illegal in CFB. You just have to be done playing by the time they snap the ball.

The SEC has rules about when you can use electronic noises (like a mic'ed band) but they don't apply to Clemson.

We must have gotten lucky, as we parked in the free parking off Hwy 93, across the road from the CU president's home.

We jumped on Clemson Blvd, turned left at the Armory, went to Pendleton, and took Hwy 88 out of town to Hwy 8 near I-85.

Zero delays and the hardly any traffic.

If you parked closer to the stadium, you were probably weren't going anywhere for a while.

It isn't against ACC rules. Why would they put an end to it?

Thought the lights were pretty distracting myself. I was in TDT, pretty high up, pretty much the farthest away from their "big" board as possible (only one smaller board was viewable, but at a bad angle) and it was glaring however many yards away I was from it (at least 150). Iron Man and Hell's Bells did seem to pump the crowd up on third down though.

Living on a prayer right before half was entertaining. I like the choice of music for kickoffs. Zombie Nation and the version of Seven Nation Army they used worked well, although I thought the video of the actual kicker pumping up the crowd was hilarious.

Don't want to talk about traffic either, it was downright awful.
