The series between the Jackets and Tigers has included plenty of high drama in the past decade, with great plays and great blunders sometimes deciding the ultimate outcome, and as I packed the Jeep and made plans for the drive to Clemson tomorrow morning I reflected back on some of my other trips to Clemson. And then I checked the Hive and found this related thread, which included a cavalcade of GT/Clemson memories.
A handful of “highs” jump immediately to the forefront for me…and I’ll rank them in the order of importance:
- Derrick Morgan’s sack of Kyle Parker in 2009 – Maybe its not the biggest play, but its the timeliest and it secured an ACC title and a BCS bid so it ranks #1.
- George Godsey to Kerry Watkins in 2000 – Amazing catch to end an amazing game, as Tech defeated an undefeated Top 10 Clemson team on the road. “Seven seconds left on the clock and Wesley, it doesn’t get any bigger than this!”, will be an immortalized Kim King call for decades to come.
- “The Muff”
