It's Clemson. Just like it says.

OK, so it's Clem-son. That's what I thought.

quote:

Say Samson. The combination of the M and S sound creates a p sounding sound. Well that same about Clemson.

Wait, so it's Clemp-son? I'm so confused.

I'm saying it is Clemson. But also explained why you may sometimes hear a slight P sound. A hard P sound is incorrect

True residents of the town pronounce it- kleeeeuumpsun.

This coming from a fan base that refers to their team and our state as Soukar Liner.

I usually say it with a "z" so it is Clemzon
