Pregame 1976

Today’s photo are from the 1976 season and shows students putting helium in balloons prior to a game. Notice the logo on the balloons, “Paws and Strips In ‘76” to reflect the Nation that was celebrating its 100 year birthday in 1976. 
 Some notable Tigers on that team were Lester Brown, Ricky Bustle, Jerry Butler, Dwight Clark, Steve Fuller, Mike O’Cain, and Jim Stuckey. 
 Despite some of those names, the 1976 Clemson team went 3–6–2 on the year. But that ’76 team was young, and they would grow up a year later by giving the Tigers an ACC Championship.
