Saw this on FB.... Classic....so proud to be a tiger

The Difference between Clemson and Scar

We are the Clemson Family. You are the Gamecock Nation

Our Stadium is named after the Clemson Students who gave their lives in the service of our country. Your stadium is named after a female booster.

It is 5 football fields from Tillman Hall to the 50 Yard Line of Frank Howard Field. It is one and a half miles from the Horseshoe to the 50 yard line at Williams-Brice.

To get to our Stadium, you walk through a park dedicated to all the Clemson Students who gave their lives in the Armed Forces. To get to your stadium, you pass an empty fairground, railroad tracks, warehouses, liquor stores and parking lots.

Our Coach embraces the history and tradition of Clemson Football. Your Coach disavows everything that came before him (East Carolina game quotes 9/8/12); after moving to #3 in the AP poll "That is a school record"- he was then informed that the 1984 SCar team rose to #2 before losing to Navy (Greenville News 10/8/2012)

We lost a bowl game by 37 points and it is considered one of the lowest points in the history of our program. You lost the SEC Championship game by 39 points and that appearance is one of the highlights of your program.

Our Coach honored the scholarship of a high school student who suffered a stroke after he verbally committed to Clemson and will likely never walk again. (Jake Nicolopulos). Your Coach pulled a scholarship offer on the day before signing day to a player who had been committed for months who was an orphan and spent the majority of his childhood as a ward of the state. (Lorenzo Mauldin).

Our Coach proposed a plan to generate revenue for schools by playing an exhibition game against regional universities that was lauded by his peers. Your coach proposed paying amateur student athletes in revenue sports only.

Our Coach goes on national television after a huge win and says "I can't think of a better place …than Death Valley, South Carolina!". Your coach, after arguably the biggest win in school history, presents himself with the gameball.

Our Coach uses his bonus money from winning the ACC Championship to provide additional pay for his assistant coaches. Your coach became a member of Augusta National after signing his contract.

Our program helped a scholarship athlete gain custody and care for his 11 year old little brother, then created an endowment to ensure his higher education. Your program frequently refuses to renew scholarships to players who aren't deemed good enough to play. (Grayson Mullins, Bryce Sherman, Tramell Williams, Andrew Clifford, Seaver Brown, Kevin Young, ect…)

Our coach leads the nation in APR (academic progress rate), your coach doesn't even realize that 18 year-olds can vote (Greenville News 11/6/2012)

After the games, my four kids play football and soccer with scores of other kids while we continue to tailgate for hours. After your games, there are four armed robberies and a shooting (Clemson 2011), two mob assaults and another shooting (Mizzu 2012), felony DUI with a flipped car and 41 other arrests (Georgia 2012).

We suspended our best player for two games, including one of the biggest games of the season for a misdemeanor arrest for which he underwent PTI and had removed from his record. Your best player was arrested in 2/2007 for public intoxication (age 19) and again in March of that year for keying a professor's car. In March of 2008 he was arrested for underage drinking and that same night had the police come to his dorm for pulling a fire alarm and discharging a fire extinguisher. He was suspended from practice for violating team rules during a bowl trip in December of 2010. And he was suspended again in April of 2011 for causing a disturbance at a SEC-mandated meeting, where he was reportedly intoxicated. Despite all this, he never missed a game until he was finally kicked off the team in October of 2011 for failing a substance abuse screening.

We won Southern Living's "The South's Best Tailgate" competition in 2012. South Carolina had a fan arrested for mooning the crowd at the LSU game in Baton Rouge 11/13/2012

When Marcus Lattimore was hurt, these were Coach Swinney's comments: "It took my breath away. I was watching and it just breaks my heart. I mean, I just hurt for him and his family and his teammates. This is a guy that, to me, represents all the good things that college football should be about. He's a guy I know personally. He's a class young man and so is his family. I know how hard he has worked. "If there is anybody I would bet on it is Marcus Lattimore. I know it will be a long process, but I tell you what, I would put my money on Marcus Lattimore in a heartbeat. When he comes to terms with this, he will do everything he can to come back. My prayers go out to him and his family. I have been heavy-hearted for him. He is a winner in every regard. Hopefully we haven't seen the last of him from a football standpoint. He has been a great representative for his family and his university. I will lift him up in my prayers." Then Coach Spurrier had this to say at the celebration meant to honor Marcus Lattimore: "A lot of quotes came across the country and I read one today from the head coach at our upstate school," Spurrier said at the rally, as if it was beneath him to mention Swinney or Clemson by name. "You know, that school that used to beat us a lot that doesn't beat us much anymore, that one. Usually when that coach up there talks about South Carolina it's a bunch of garbage and a bunch of BS usually."

Clemson Memorial Stadium was named as the top venue in college football by Bleacher Report.com(2012), Williams-Brice Stadium was noted by the Wall Street Journal as having the shortest distance from the stadium to a Waffle House in the SEC (10/3/2012).

I thought I saw Jake Nicolopolus at the Tiger Walk and he seemed very mobile, he was walking fine. But that's beside the point, this is a great post. I'm glad I'm a Clemson Tiger fan!


Thanx. Best post of the day. +1.***

I'd point you 1,000 times if I could. I may get flamed, but these things are more important to me than beating those dirtpeckers.

after games, our fans join the team on the actual playing field in an age-old tradition of "family". After SC games, fans head for the exits and traffic lines.

What do you mean "after the games"....they leave in the 3rd quarter most games!


I think we should temporarily suspend the 1 vote limit!!!!!***

Cared so much about Ray Ray that his scholarship was pulled.

Carolina's staff helped Sammy up last year and patted him on the helmet. Next play, Clemson coaching staff members stood over and taunted a Carolina player after getting knocked down on a nice block. They then "embraced their history" by spewing the series record. It was a 21 point lead at the time. Stay classy!

DeAndre McDaniel was never suspended. Did you forget about him? What was his offense? What were Garcia's (who want nearly our "star player")? Sammy was driving a car while in possession of drugs. Joe Craig also say hello. He had to mess up again before he would be suspended. Beating a woman just wasn't enough. How high is that hire now?

Southern Living. SOUTHERN LIVING? I give. You got us.


Just goes to show. Anyone can post anything on social media. it doesnt matter how inaccurate it is, many will embrace and follow.


All in good fun. Should be a heck of a game.


LOL...What's one of the first posts I see on early T-day?

A member of our loyal opposition ready to defend his turf on TNet...rather than chatting with his cohorts on one of his own sites! Makes one think that too many of us may well be gluttons for punishment...even on a glorious holiday! Nevertheless, I won't engage in retribution at this moment and will agree: should be one heckova game.
