The word is derived from the combination of Clemson and embarrassing. Defined as an act performed by a Clemson team or fan of Clemson causing colossal embarrassment for Clemson.
In early June 2013, Clemson launched an investigation to catch the individual who vandalized Howard's Rock. Countless Clemson fans lashed out on Facebook and other social mediums, assuming the vandal was a fan of a rival school (SCAR or UGA). The vandal was caught and he (Micah Rogers) was reported to be a CLEMSON fan...clembarrassing.
Clemson lost the 2012 Orange Bowl by giving up an all-time record 70 points to West Virginia University. The final score, 70 - 33, represents the largest margin of victory in a BCS bowl game. West Virginia is the lowest ranked team to ever win a BCS bowl game. Prior to the game, Clemson's Head Coach, Dabo Swinney, said, "Hopefully when this thing is over, people are going to be talking about the Clemson defense." In addition to the record-setting losing score, 70–33, Clemson conceding an all-time record number of points scored in a quarter (35), half (49) and game (70) in the 109-year history of bowl games. Truly a clembarrassing performance by the team, along with a comments by Swinney, proved to be a clembarrassment!
