I think it's more recent that we started getting more money than them, and it's definitely more recent that we got any leadership that had a clue how to spend it. We're playing catch up. Give it time.

We've been playing catchup in the facilities department, but we have that on the docket. Money advantage is pretty recent and is more of a long term thing.

This has to be a joke, right? We build a $60MM basketball arena and they fix the roof on the John. We build the best baseball stadium in the country and they throw some bleachers up in the outfield. We put up one of the biggest replay board in the country and they respond by throwing up a couple of big screens from Best Buy. Have you tailgated in the "IPTAY parking lot" at Clemson? I have and I can tell you it's a mud pit with 2 porta johns(not to be confused with the basketball arena). It's pitiful compared to our new lots. Their academic facility for athletes? Smaller and out of date compared to the Dodie.

Congrats to them for building an indoor practice facility right before we build ours that's been on the docket for a while now. How in the world that equates to being a "step up on us a lot" I have no idea. You can't really believe that.

They unfortunately have a brand new indoor practice facility and we do not. That is one step up. Memorial Stadium is a prettier venue than the concrete jungle we call Williams-Brice. That is a step up. That $60MM dollar Colonial-Life Center is a complete joke. Although I'm not sure what Clemson's looks like, but compared to other programs its just not very impressive. Granted our two sports are football and baseball, and our baseball stadium is amazing. Just wish it was closer to Williams-Brice to make the aerial shots of WB more impressive.

A step up on us a lot is a bit of an exaggeration I would say, but they do have nice venues up in that wasteland.

And I'm not sure what stadium I keep passing near WB (I think maybe our track and field, or soccer) but that thing is hideous beyond measure. Just wish they'd tear it down and build something else there.

This is the rally cry of the taters right now, about all they have left. Ours will be finished and then they'll try to find something else to nitpick.

And then when ours goes up we'll have the step up. Is that really something to cry about? I don't think so.

You've GOT to be kidding. At least we've put a few coats of paint on our stadium lately. Their concrete looks like they haven't even pressured washed it in decades. Their stadium is also built in a way where the upper deck seats are so far away you can barely see the field. Probably why their stadium isn't all that loud.

You have now shown you have no idea what you're talking about. The prior comments were pretty ignorant, this is just flat out laughable.

Why?

They're a step below us in many regards. It's only going to get worse. That's just a fact.

We're in the process of building a brand new olympic sports complex. So even though you admit you have no idea what stadium you are talking about, you are still complaining about nothing.
