Default When will we go full NASCAR?

I just noticed coach Venable's picture on the front page with his article, and the Greenville Hospital System's logo on his headphones. I know its the way things are, and the AD tries to get money from any available source, but its going to be funny when Dabo does a post game press conference and in his best Jimmy Johnson voice opens with, "Well, the Nike Gatorade Greenville Hospital System Bi-Lo Clemson Tigers sure played well today."

Not a fan of the push toward advertisers sponsoring everything.

I still see a huge gap between NCAA football and NASCAR. In the racing case, there's almost no need to paint cars any more and every surface at the tracks is practically paid for by sponsors.

A logo on a headset seems pretty minor by comparison.

It is worthwhile to keep an eye on how far it goes, but for now I say take the money and run.

I am pretty sure DRad embraced that philosophy at GT with lots of corporate sponsorships. Of course, Atlanta lends itself to that a little more than Clemson does.

Robert, have you heard what the 'new littlejohn' will be named? I fully expect it to be the 'Fluor Coliseum' or 'CocaCola Arena'...

I would be in favor of that, although "The Barb Court in TheClemsonInsider Arena" has a better sound to me...

I think it has gotten ridiculous on most sports radio broadcasts. LIKE.....

The Tigers are going to have to Punt... and when your relationship has stalled and you feel like you need to punt, call the divorce specialists at Bickers & Bickers Law Firm.

And the Tigers put 6 more on the board. That's another successful Delta Airline's TOUCHDOWN!

This timeout is brought to you by Nannys-R-US. Ladies, you know how it is when you just need to stop the clock and catch your breath... take a needed timeout from those kids. Call Nannys-R-Us.

That Tiger run down the Hill was brought to you by Geritol. If you feel run down or over the hill, Geritol will make you feel like a Tiger again. Grrrrr.....

That's another Tiger 1st Down... that 1st Down was brought to you by The Pillow Factory, where when you buy your 1st Down pillow, we give you your 2nd Down pillow for free. That at the Pillow Factory in Easley.

That's another Sack O'Suds quarterback sack. Stop at the Sack O'Suds for all your tailgating needs. Located in Pickens, Powdersville, and Belton/Honea Path.

That pass completion is brought to you by FarmersOnly.com. Tired of making passes only to have them fall short? We can help you make the completion of your dreams and maybe even score! At FarmersOnly.com

It's gotten this bad.
