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
