Tigerpundit talks football on the radio

Wow, I have been supremely derelict in updating this site. But today, something happened that might give me a push to post more often -- I was on the radio talking Clemson football.

WGAU in Athens, Ga., contacted me about coming on for eight minutes or so to discuss Saturday's Clemson-Georgia game. I joined Tim Bryant's Newsmakers show for a fun chat about Clemson and the upcoming game. Here's a link to Tim's show. My segment begins at the 41:40 mark.

I'd like to again thank Tim for reaching out to me and giving me the opportunity to do my first-ever radio interview. Pretty cool.

Do Clemson fans 'get it'? You better believe it

Mike Sturgis writes at Tigernet about the gameday experience at Death Valley -- even for a less-than-stellar opponent:

College football is a celebration that comes only to your campus but seven times a season. It’s the pageantry, the tailgating, the game, the post-game tailgating, and the lasting and lifelong memories. ... I was impressed with the crowd at Clemson last time out. It was South Carolina State, it was 12:37, and it was hot. Minus a small pocket of empty seats where visiting fans sit, Death Valley was full. Just twenty minutes earlier David Hood and I commented it looked like there would be a “whole lot of no shows”. That did not happen because Clemson fans get it.

Running down the Hill: The entire sequence

Now that the whole world loves Clemson following its thrilling 38-35 victory over Georgia on Saturday night, here's a video that's really blowing up on social media. It's from ABC/ESPN's broadcast of the game, and it's the entire running-down-the-Hill sequence -- the bus ride from the locker room to the actual sprint into the stadium. It captures a lot of angles I've never seen before. Enjoy.

Man charged in Howard's Rock case won't leave school board

Michael Rodgers, who is a member of the Transylvania (N.C.) County School Board, says he's a victim of injustice in the Howard's Rock vandalism case against his son, Micah:

“My determination to find the truth has resulted in me being charged with a crime that I absolutely did not commit,” Michael Rogers wrote. “Unfortunately my role in trying to find the truth has led to these allegations.”

Michael Rodgers, who is also a Baptist pastor, is charged with obstructing justice by advising his son and others involved in the case "to be untruthful about their actions when questioned by law enforcement."
