The TBIG mailbag has been receiving a lot of hateful and borderline threatening letters over the past couple of weeks that even make us fearful for our lives (and you know how gangsta we are). It's one thing to have someone say their gonna kick your ass, but when you have a dumbass redneck farmer wearing purple tell you he's gonna kick your ass, you def. don't take it too lightly. I will be the first to admit that I am questioning my faith in Tommy Bowden right now as well. As the way it looks, there won' be a Tommy Bowden fat-head made for next year, there won't ever be a Tommy Bowden Statue placed inside the WestEndzone, and the Tommy Bowden Wikipedia entry that will be updated at the end of the year won't be to my liking as well. We'll see how the season plays out though, we're not throwing anyone under the bus just yet.
As I sat in my seats - Section R, Row FF, Seats 6 and 8 - one of the Clemson fans (probably a Tigernet nutjob) behind me acted totally out of line the entire ballgame. For every normal word that came out of his mouth, he would have 4 cuss words behind it. Honestly, all I heard were sentences like: mother f-er b!tch stupid a$$. Oh yea, and 2 minutes into the ballgame, he tried to start a fight with a VT Fan! There was actually a peaceful moment there for about 5 minutes when the man behind me left his seat to go to the little boy's room. Luckily for Tiger Nation I didn't see any 4 or 5 star recruits sitting around us who could hear that clown (and yes, Tommy Bowden normally has a lot of 4 and 5 star recruits visiting Clemson on a weekly basis). We're not 100% sure if the season will get turned around and if the players will start executing or not but there is one thing we do know: We won't know a decision on Bowden till the end of the year, so Clemson fans better suck it up and get behind Bowden and our team and stop hurting our chances in recruiting. What if Clemson goes 8-4, and their 4 losses are VT, GT, USC, and BC? 3 out of those 4 teams are in the Top 15. Does Tommy keep his job?
