          I was at a reunion a number of years ago and found out I had been nominated but not elected because I had never joined the Block C Varsity Athletics fraternity. I was there 72-76 and at that point no High Jumper had ever joined so I didn't either. I was not going to crawl through S**T and be urinated on in order to "BELONG". Not to mention walk around with a brick tied to my "willie". I have seen who is in the HoF and I know a LOT don't have my credentials, but hey I'm not going to start kissing butt at 50! Clemson used me as a recruiting tool which was the very beginning of them getting a lot of good athletes in. I got a good education. Nuff said.

                Actually by that point everyone was treated equally at Clemson. They molasssed and feathered all the pledges. I guess they couldn't get ahold of tar.
