If you are heading to Clemson for tomorrow night’s big game between the Tigers and Gamecocks you better bring a jacket. Maybe some gloves. And a warm hat too. Unless you are one of those people who wears shorts when it is 30 degrees because where you are from “it gets way colder than this” or a “you Southerners don’t know what cold truly is” type. I guess it will be balmy for those annoying types of humans.
For us normal people, it will be downright chilly.
SCRN chief meteorologist Tom Crawford tells us it will be cold at kickoff and the temperatures will continue to drop during the game.
Some people think the cold weather means an advantage for Clemson. USC has struggled in its last two cold weather games, the Papa Johns.com Bowl and the Arkansas game. Steve Spurrier downplayed the weather this week, but he did essentially tell his players to man up if it’s cold.
The Arkansas game was not that cold, Spurrier said. “It really wasn’t. When we went out for warm-ups you would have thought we were playing in Green Bay. “We also remind them. If you guys are going to play in the NFL, and of course 80 percent of our guys think they are, you got to play in cold weather. You gotta love playing in cold weather if you want to play in the NFL.”
