That meant performing a skit on stage in front of the crowd of over 6,000 people.
It was another first for Swinney's Tigers. A Clemson football team had
never performed a skit at Tigerama in the 53 years of the event.
Swinney came through with his promise on Friday night as the team
performed a rendition of Michael Jackson's famed music video "Thriller,"
appropriate in this Halloween season.
There was a change in the lyrics, however. Instead of using the word "Thriller"
the team said "Spiller."
The change was made in honor of Clemson Heisman Trophy
candidate C.J. Spiller, one of the most thrilling players in college football.
Spiller performed on stage with the group complete with moon walk, sun
glasses and glove.
The Tigers face Coastal Carolina on Saturday at 1:30 PM at Clemson
Spiller or Thriller?
