I emailed a Clemson co-worker for his take on the Death Valley "controversy". Here's the dialogue: SabanFan: An LSU forum that I frequent has a discussion going regarding the origins of the name Death Valley and whether Clemson or LSU is the real (or maybe first) one. Anything in your dot com library or prodigious memory that addresses the subject? Clemson Fan: well yeah.....I know we were the first. That's all that matters. Nyah. SF: No wonder the Cocks hate you guys. Anyway what does Clemson's faux DV hold? 25, 30,000? Watch CBS Saturday afternoon and get a peek at the real deal. CF: The Cocks hate us simply because we are superior. Case closed. As far as our DV stadium we presently seat approximately 82-83,000 but are getting ready to re-do an endzone, fill it in and add about 10,000 seats. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, old buzzard who is still without golf balls, and might not get any more due to his smart mouth. I am sure I can get some additional info on the DV 'thing', but it doesn't really matter because regardless of when it happened, all true Americans know that Clemson is the one true and real Death Valley. I would tune in on Saturday but they rarely give coverage in this area to the LSU program as they don't care to give coverage to junior college programs. SF:Oh. Go rub a rock. CF:that was a snappy comeback......you're getting good! Actually I wish your team the best.......I hate So. Carolina with all my heart and soul.......but Georgia is a VERY CLOSE second. Go Tigers! SF:We will put a whuppin upon them (Jerry Clower) the likes of which the Dawgs have never seen.
