It has been stated that the “woo hoo” was heard as far back as the 1982 Orange Bowl Game.  That is a possibility but I don’t really remember hearing it on my game DVD.  Either way, it does not change the fact that it wasn’t until recently (1998-’99) that it was heard with any significant volume in Clemson’s “DEATH Valley”. The perpetrators of this sissy yet apparently infectious chant were the members of the flag line of ’98-’99 and for the people that continue this silliness there are a few things about the woo hoo that you should know It sounds sissy, pansy, however you want to say it.  Either way, it is not very aggressive.  This is not an opinion, it is a fact and anyone who disagrees is well…wrong. It makes for an easier atmosphere for opposing teams to play in because the fans do not sound intimidating, they sound a little light in the feet. It gives the Clemson fan base a bad name. It is NOT a Tradition.  At Clemson there is pretty much a story or reason behind every tradition.  For the woo hoo: the flag line was bored and started doing some nonsense chant

Declaration of Independence

This Declaration was taken from a post by “Spud” on The Tigernet. Collectively, we feel that the sissy-sounding squall that has recently come to be called the “woo hoo” should be banned from all Clemson University athletic, social, organizational, academic, and all other gatherings as deemed necessary by the undersigned. We must think of the students and now even alumni that were not fortunate enough to be privy to a life prior to the abhorrent “woo-hoo” imposed on each member of the Clemson Family. We must stand up for a life before “woo-hooing” pervaded the air and out-sung the melodic sounds of our own Tiger Rag. We must stand up for honesty and integrity by taking a firm stance against the thievery that is the “woo hoo”. We must stand against the stereotyping of our dear University by not allowing the integration of a sound most likely to be heard on a farm. We must stand for the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness that cannot continue unless this loathsome sound is removed from our present “tradition” and is replaced as a shameful part of our otherwise rich rich history.
