    Interesting look at how Clemson makes 50% less money than Alabama yet still competes

    I know this link might not work but WSJ January 7 story on how Clemson is creative in competing against Alabama.

    Here is an excerpt:

    In December 2015, a young man in the Clemson University athletic department received a surprising email. It came from a staff member at Manchester United, the world-famous English Premier League team.
    The message: “We want to be more like Clemson.”

    For a school whose mention often prompts Google searches for “Where is Clemson?” the email was a huge victory. It came in response to the Tigers’ enhanced social-media efforts to capture the school’s rural location (Clemson, S.C.) and the people who make the football program go.

    Greenville-Spartanburg metro area ~ 1.1MM

    If only Tech could be in such a "rural" location!

    And about 2 hours from Atlanta and Charlotte (so many Clemson grads here).

    If you encompass I-20 from Shreveport to Jackson and 167 from Alexandria to Little Rock we have them beat.
