1981 Clemson Recruiting: Food, Weights, and Sophisticated Excitement

By Adam Kramer   Jul. 19, 2011

Why would anyone ever want to watch a 9-minute Clemson recruiting video from 1981?

Can’t…not…watch…must…not…waste… I lose. Go on, your dedication is admirable here.

The highlight of the entire video comes early, at the 30-second mark to be exact. Here, the 1981 Tiger squad showcases the “the best college weight room in the country.” They’re not just putting in the work; they’re doing so at an uncomfortable, tear-your-muscle-off-the-bone pace. They’re all smiles – all while the strength coach looks on probably yelling at his players for not getting their shrugs in fast enough.

Don’t just stop there, though. The rest of the informative footage in part 2 of this Clemson recruiting video (this means there’s actually another part somewhere) gives us an idea of what it was like to play football at Clemson in the early 1980s.

Get ready to send in your LOIs…
