What is the point and who came up with that idea? I understand the hype machine and getting the crowd excited but that just seems really silly. How long have they been doing this?

locker rooms used to be at Fike, which is right across the street and to the left about 50 yards. they'd come from there, down the hill, and straight into warmups purely from necessity. they eventually turned the hill into tradition, and when they built locker rooms under the west endzone, they kept it alive by busing the players around the stadium. over time, with addition of Tiger Rag, the cannon, the rock, and all the other stuff, it just got more and more hyped.

They go from one end of the stadium to the other. The don't fully circle the stadium. Maybe we should get the EPA and all the go green nazis after them though. Think of all those unnecessary carbon emissions.

Why not just come out of the locker room stand outside the stadium and then run down the hill.

Because the hill and their locker room are on different ends of the stadium.

No the locker room is in the west endzone and the hill is on the east side of the stadium. Its on the complete opposite side of the stadium. Thats why they ride the buses

Running down that pasture hill can be dangerous. I wonder how many players have been injured over the years. Looks like Battle fell after he got down the hill,




Same player that threw this punch. Payback is hell.

Chapin and 96 have the same entrance.

I think they should build a tunnel under the stadium to get to the hill.

Yeah. I can't have any respect for their entrance until the busing around the stadium is removed from it. It just looks so dumb and clumsy. When they planned to build locker rooms, they knew that they'd like to continue the running down the hill tradition, so make it possible to get to the top of the hill without using buses.

this, Why on earth did they choose to build the locker rooms opposite the hill that they use to enter the stadium, I thought Clemson was supposed to be the Engineering School in the state, and they cant even figure that out...
