Default Jamie Harper follows this site

I noticed that Jamie joined our facebook group and I wanted to let everybody know that I hope we respect the fact that these young men are reading what we say. We can criticize mistakes, but let's have respect and remember the bigger picture with these young athletes.

The criticism we made of the basketball program in our recent threads have been fair and open minded and none of it has been personal. One thing I can't stand is when a tiger fan gets very personal with a good young man like say Jamie Harper.

I used to go on the tigerboard at tigernet all the time, but now I can hardly stomach it because of all the negativety when we lose. Some people have even questioned whether Oliver Purnell should be our coach. Every time something bad happens they get very personal WITH PLAYERS ESPECIALLY. "John Doe shouldn't have a scholarship", or "John Doe sucks" is a regular on many boards now when our CLEMSON TIGERS make mistakes on the athletic field. I'll never forget the people in the chat that were saying Terrance Oglesby isn't a good basketball player when he had one bad game. Next game he was incredible, and the guy wasn't excited he was doing it. Negative nancy's are ruining tiger web-sites.

Again, I criticize. What the hell is wrong with criticizing??? But, many times other boards have taken it overboard and been very personal with young men that love our university and put their body and limbs on the line every single year for MY UNIVERSITY AND THEIRS!!! I am hoping that Robert and John make sure the trash stays on the 63-17 or the Off-topic Boards. The other boards should be for intelligent criticism and discussions.

Finally I wanted to personally thank all of the student athletes at Clemson and welcome Jamie and his fellow teammates to Robert and John's new site. Many of us give alot of money to IPTAY to support you and I will be their every Saturday this fall to watch you guys suprise all of the naysayers. Call me a fanatic if you wish, but you will always have my total support. GO TIGERS AND GOOD LUCK JAMIE HARPER IN 2009!!!

Great post. There will be a number of players and their parents on this board. Everyone should remember that at all times.

It would be so hard for me to be a parent of a student athlete at a major university today. Just pure anger by losing a game. These people sometimes act like children that don't get their way.

I am excited to hear about him and Ellington. Both are potential 1,000 yard rushers in the future!!!

Are we sure it is actually HIS Facebook and not someone pretending to be him?

Tim Tebow has about 100 of them and he said on national TV that non of the are actually him

It is his. It is the one that all of the other CU players are friends with. I have chatted with him briefly on there as well.
