I was there, fully grown

And I remember the woman seated in the row behind me laughing when I turned my back on the field as FSU lined up for that last goal-line play. I kept turning though, eyes open, to watch it unfold, and later in the evening was privileged to witness the Rugby Road procession with the purloined goal post as it approached Beta Bridge. Man, it was a great night. But I still believe that the most sustained electricity I've ever experienced in Scott Stadium, and a friend who was with me agrees, was on the night of our first-ever Clemson win. Maybe it's because it was the first time I had ever experienced it at that level in Scott, but it was in the air all week. There was hardly a soul in this town that didn't believe we would get that win, and all wanted it desperately. The student section was packed and in full throat well before kickoff. The captains were raucously cheered when they walked out for the coin toss, and it just kept on from there. It was a beautiful thing .... Had we lost, we might have had mass suicide on the field. Unfortunately, or maybe not, I missed the Georgia Tech tragedy, when we were again victimized by Clint Sisson's toe. I still blame the loss, however, on Bruce McGonnigle's girlfriend's cat.
