Clemson University’s team entrance is pretty impressive (video)


Last night, Clemson University squeaked by in their victory against the Georgia Bulldogs, but maybe more impressive than their performance on the field was their performance prior to getting on the field.

With a hat tip to both For the Win and Coachingsearch.com, here we have the Clemson football team taking part in their traditional pre-game entrance.

While every team (both in the NCAA and NFL) have their own entrance theme, Clemson likes to take it to the next level apparently and it starts with riding a bus around Death Valle where they eventually meet up with famed Howard’s Rock.

After a few minutes of anticipation, they rush to the field, down a hill (that’s not dangerous at all) once a canon fires.

ESPN/ABC, who broadcast the game, showed the world their impressive tradition last evening:

Definitely pretty inspiring if you’re on the field as 80,000 plus are screaming and it’ll certainly get you pumped for the game. Though, I was just waiting for that dude who ran out at the 5:35 mark and nearly leaped to his death (or at least a broken leg) to be put on the IR. Goodness, next time get him a downer or something.
