Default Clemson's use of strobe scoreboards on third down

Anyone else think this was major busch league? I can't imagine it would ever fly in the SEC.

For those that weren't at the game and have no idea what I'm talking about, on third down when Clemson is on defense ALL of their scoreboards and ribbon boards show a set of tiger eyes and start flashing colors quickly. Every scoreboard is strobing these colors (I counted 3 boards and ribbon boards all the way around).

It was tough on the eyes after a while.

shouldn't be allowed.

noise is one thing.

strobing lights are meant to induce nausea, vomiting, and seizures.

Yeah, saw the same thing at the game, I have no idea why that is allowed. Definitely should be addressed by the NCAA.

After four years, I guess they'll try to come up with anything to get an advantage for a win. Shoot I can't remember so many holding calls against us in one game!

That was all kinds of annoying. Who let that clown in. Especially near the camera and mics.

Next year we can put a picture of a Clemscum fan violating a sheep, cow, or whatever their beast of choice is on the beast board to distract them.

That kind of crap reeks of desperation. It's what you do when you know your defense isn't man enough to get the job done without silly lighting tricks. Pure pussification, typical Clempson mentality.

That was not an artificial noisemaker. It was the tiger cheerleaders.
