  • October 26, 1974: Clemson loses game to Tennessee in game played in Knoxville, 28-29, when the Vols "score" on touchdown pass to ineligible receiver in the fourth quarter - naturally the SEC refs rule it valid, and the Tigers go home mad. That night, Tiger Band members, staying at the Holiday Inn next to I-40 in Knoxville, change the marquee sign from "Welcome Vols Fans - Kids Eat Free Here" to "Eat Shit Vols". Altered sign stays up for about threee hours, until a sxtate trooper pulls in off the interstate, and suggests that the board be taken down.
