Don't see Clemson on the list.

Five straight 10 win seasons
How many did Clemson have? 0


Most Medal of Honor recipients (not sports related but interesting fact)

1. West Point
2. US Naval Academy
3. Va Tech

Where's Clemson?

Toughest non-conference schedule

2. Miami (Ohio)
3. USC
4. Florida State

Overall Record since 2003
Va Tech 60 wins - 20 loses
Clemson 47 wins-32 loses

Not bad for a program with no tradition
The number of seats in a stadium does not equate to having a tradition or having a home field advantage. One of the loudest games I have ever attended (College or Pro) was at a Navy home game against Rutgers last season. The stadium holds only about 30,000.
I am not a clemson fan at all, as you see, I voted for the mighty gators. don't try to paint me as a clemson fan, cause I am not at all. as for the medal of honor thing, get real. it used to be an all male military institute. as for draft picks, how many are in the NFL, and how many are in jail? as for that tough OOC schedule, how'd that work out against east carolina and LSU? continue to make comparisons to a team I could care less about, cause the gators are going to repeat as chompions.

Actually I think none are in jail (at the moment). I used the MOH reference just as an interesting fact, not as a sports comparison. Good luck this season. BTW, did you attend UF or are you a wannabe?

Detroit Lions......haven't been to Ford Field but the Silverdome seemed "antiseptic". Would have loved to see the Lions at Briggs Field though.

For those "not in the know", it's the old Tiger Stadium.



I went to the 1991 NFC Championship game between the Lions & Redskins at RFK. That place was LOUD. Great place to see a ballgame.

I'm not a University of Michigan fan, but I've been to Michigan Stadium twice. Gotta love the bleacher seats and pee troughs....

Even louder than RFK.....of course, it seats a lot more people.

I got on TV too.

My buddy in Maryland taped the game. So, my 'lil bit of fame.

Of course, all of my friends and family watched it....and saw me.

Congrats to me.....and I didn't do a darn thing.

My friend won tickets through a radio program. We were in these makeshift bleachers on the Redskins side. 5 yard line. Right on the field.

Dexter Manley is a monster.
Barry Sanders had legs like a hockey player's.

Wearing my Lions #20 jersey, I was pelted with chicken bones, doused with beer, and was completely humiliated for 3+ hours.

It was fun.
