Mike Epply. He went 21-5-1 as a starting quarterback. The 1983 team was 9-1-1 and 7-0 in the ACC.

He was 5-0 as the starting QB in 1982 when the Tigers won their second straight ACC Championship.

The 1983 team was ineligible to win the ACC due to NCAA probation. He also led the NCAA in passing efficiency in 1983.

To add to that, he was was an academic All-American in 1984 and was the starting point guard for the Clemson basketball team in 1983 and '84. He was one of the best athletes Clemson has ever had.

Gotta agree with you here. That was in my time. He was a good one. Of course I do remember him getting sacked in the end zone in the 1984 chicken game, which we lost 22-21 for the first loss to them in the valley in, like, 10 years. I remember because I was in grad school at USC at the time. Left a mark.
But I do agree that he would be my choice.

Yeah, the 1984 game stung for me, too. I hate that image of Mike Hold dropping the football in front of Perry after scoring the game winner.

Clemson led 21-3 in that game and lost.

The crazy thing is the Tigers trailed 21-6 to USC two years later and came back and tied the game the game 21-21.
