Clemson is encouraging all Tiger fans to show their spirit and wear orange for the Solid Orange ... One Clemson "A Sea of Orange" Weekend that will kickoff the 2003-04 year on Friday, August 29th.

Festivities will begin Friday, August 29th at 6:00 PM with the Central Spirit First Friday Parade and continue with a pep rally immediately following on Riggs Field.

"With every Clemson fan wearing orange to the women's soccer match against South Carolina on Friday night, Aug. 29th and also to the football game against Georgia on Saturday, Aug. 30th we as a united front can increase our competitive home field advantage against our rivals," said Athletic Director Terry Don Phillips.

Tiger Band, Cheerleaders, Rally Cats, the Tiger and Tiger Cub mascots and Central Spirit will be on hand to welcome fans to the electric atmosphere.

"The Solid Orange...One Clemson principle promotes unity, spirit and oneness with the Clemson Family.
