CLEMSON FALLS ON THE ROAD TO NORTH CAROLINA … AGAIN

This was supposed to be the year “the streak” finally ended …

And no, we’re not referring to Clemson University’s five consecutive football losses to its arch-rival, the University of South Carolina.  This is a much longer sustained demonstration of ineptitude.

Clemson has been playing men’s basketball in Chapel Hill, N.C. dating back to 1926, but has never beaten the University of North Carolina on its home court.

For those of you keeping score at home, that’s never … a streak which stretched to an NCAA-record fifty-seven consecutive losses this weekend when a struggling North Carolina squad cruised past a resurgent Tiger team for one of the streak’s most unexpected wins.

“North Carolina is heading down what could be the worst season in program history under the direction of Roy Williams,” the Fansided website Keeping It Heel noted before the game. “On the other hand, Clemson is having the best season in sometime that the program has seen in recent history.”

Indeed … the stars seemed to have aligned for Clemson, which had lost 24 of its last 26 games in Chapel Hill by double digits. But this North Carolina team was ripe for the picking … having just lost to Virginia and falling to 1-4 in ACC play for only the second time in program history.

The Tigers have come close to ending the streak before – losing by one point to the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill in the 1935-36 and 1973-74 seasons. More recently – during the 2007-08 season – they enjoyed a double-digit lead with four minutes to play before coughing it up and falling 103-93 in double overtime.

Yeah … sorry we brought that up, Tiger fans.

Overall, North Carolina holds a 128-20 series lead – winning sixteen of the last seventeen games.

Will Clemson ever win a game in Chapel Hill? No. Probably not.

As bad as Clemson played, they still beat the gamecocks. So does Clemson’s 0-57 at UNC make the gamecocks’ basketball team look better?

Clemson’s saving grace is basketball, because our football and baseball team has run circles around them for quite some time.

What is Clemson going to do next year?

Squishy123 January 27, 2014 at 4:23 pm

and you call yourself a Dirtpecker fan…

Dab0-5winney January 27, 2014 at 4:35 pm

Gamecock fans aren’t the ones crying wait till next year. We just watched our team finish in the top 4. We just watched our team add to the longest current home winning streak in the Country. We just watched our team finish ranked in the top 10 for last 3 years. We just watched our team finish with double digit wins for the 4th year in a row, we just watched our team dominate the over-impressed with themselves Tigers for the 5th consecutive year. Add that up and saying “Wait till next year”, couldn’t be against USC, So I ask again, What is Clemson going to do next year? Or were you just trying to be funny? It wasn’t clear if you were.

Squishy123 January 27, 2014 at 5:43 pm

Amazing what can happen when top 10 teams lose in bowl games and conference championship games… I hear 50% lose a game and those ranked lower and sitting at home jump over them.

Dab0-5winney January 27, 2014 at 7:08 pm

bitter about what? how does 0-57 against the tarholes in chapel hole make one bitter about beating the gamecocks in basketball? perhaps we can both invoke the UNCheat athletic curriculum (no classes, no work, top grades).

The vice president of the Simple Tiger fans speaks.Yes, Pickens Technical College beat the Gamecocks and they are better than the Gamecocks bball team. That’s called objectivity, something you can’t relate to.
This streak is incredible, and if you can’t see that, you probably also think Dabo is a good coach. So enjoy the Tigers win over the Gamecocks in basketball and be sure to crow about it. You need that in your life. Also, when the 6-bomb hits, be sure to disappear from here that night and the days following like you always do. Until then, stay warm with the fact you have history on your side and an ACC team won the national championship. And also pretend that 5 in a row doesn’t keep you up at night. That will help you through the coming snow storm.

CNSYD January 27, 2014 at 1:36 pm

History? I thought you cock fans opposed history. On one hand you want to crow about the UNC-Clemson basketball record at Chapel Hill all the way back to 1926. But come football time and the USC-Clemson series. anything prior to the last five years is history and therefore doesn’t count. How very objective of you.

Reply
Dab0-5winney January 27, 2014 at 4:18 pm

Hold on now, both are part of a current win streak ,and all current streaks are in the present not past, so Its actually not history he is speaking of, but the present.

Reply
CNSYD January 27, 2014 at 4:55 pm

So per your definition, UGA and UT hold win streaks over the mighty cocks, correct?

Dab0-5winney January 27, 2014 at 5:48 pm

1 win is not a streak, but they did win the last one over USC. its still not 5 in a row though is it?.

CNSYD January 27, 2014 at 6:07 pm

Interesting how your definitions change. so you don’t have a win streak over MO, correct?

Dab0-5winney January 27, 2014 at 7:04 pm

Are you really that dumb? I have never changed a definition, but since you ask, yes we do own a winning streak over Mizzou, seeing as how it is 2 consecutive, and 2 is greater than 1. I’m sure you know that, but you seem so confused as to what a streak is and isn’t so I thought I would help you there. Ask anyone in the world you can and see how many people say a streak is just 1. The ones that say yes are either 4 years old, or stupid.

its happening as we speak every year you have Dabo. He has never as head coach won, and he is the coach that tried to call it a domination. He is the only one to get dominated. 0-5

When you’re one of the tops in the SEC, that’s always a possibility. In 2013, if Mizzou loses to A&M, SC may have won it all. I think SC certainly was better than the fluke, Auburn. And If Spurrier got to FSU, I think the better coach would have won it..

Don’t you agree…???

Reply
GrandTango January 27, 2014 at 11:51 am

I think the same can be said for beating SC in football, again..too. SC is so far ahead of Clemson, and the gap is growing. I just don’t think Clemson, in the ACC, is on a level to compete on the level where SC plays. It’s like D-1 where SC is…and D-II for Clemson…

Reply
CNSYD January 27, 2014 at 11:55 am

This level on which SC plays has not produced a SEC championship. You do remember that you play in that conference don’t you?

How ’bout that. SC is only the second-best team in the SEC, and still a class above Clemson’s best team in its history of its program…

Actually the “final poll” should be after the regular season. If you don’t play in a bowl game or conference championship you don’t have to worry about losing one or two more games.

Opimus Prime January 27, 2014 at 9:15 pm

I’m pretty sure USC was top 10 in the last 3 years of “that poll” FYI and ahead of your Tigers

this guy is an assclown January 29, 2014 at 8:34 am

So according to your dumbass comment used made only in a weak attempt to take a jab at USC, if #2 beats #1 in the Championship game #1 should still be the champs since at the end of regular season they were #1?

It’s difficult for anyone to compete against a college team who can recruit, retain and graduate players based on a decades long system of academic fraud..hundreds of fake classes, no-show classes, forged instructor signatures and unauthorized grade changes. Yes Mr. high school basketball star, you don’t have to put in the work to learn to read above the 8th grade level. We will get you into school, keep you eligible and give you a UNC degree as long as you get us the wins and the revenue that comes with them. Doesn’t look like UNC-CH has had a legitimate revenue sports win in many years. http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-02-27/in-fake-classes-scandal-unc-fails-its-athletes-whistle-blower
