First you take em' by the waistband.....

Posted on: April 4, 2009 8:29 am

Spring is here and the time for on-campus football freshmen has come. Getting up for college football seasons in the fall requires the fans to pay attention to postings and blogs out on the net , or read your state newspaper's biased views on how your favorite team will win the BCS national championship.

I , as a huge Clemson Tiger fan am just hoping for positive strides under Dabo Swinney and looking for a ray of hope in a wide open league. Other fans of other teams have higher aspirations (see fans around Gainesville, L.A. , Baton Rouge and Columbus...) but we in the Palmetto state (yes that means in Cola-Town too !!) need to hold off on title talks at least for the forseeable future.

Spring practices , spring games and the like brings us all great anticipation and puts a smile on the faces of young and old alike. I like the reports on my team page which cronicle which players are looking strong , what freshmen impress and who will be looked to for leadership in the fall. Players and coaches alike are getting a feel for each other and the fans are getting out the what-nots for the summer season where you wear the colors and fly the flags. You get to clean off the tailgating gear , shine up the grill and wash -out your officially licensed underwear while smiling fondly at the picture of the home stadium on your den wall.

Just can't wait til' fall..... nothing against the spring or summer , but the fall is the penultimate for college football fans.

GO TIGERS !!!!!!!

Yep, there's just something about the smell in the Clemson air during the fall (maybe its the smell of all that tailgating food).  What an incredibly time of year!
