I enjoy this site and have been a member for a long time. I do not post very often. I am a Gamecock and have children that have attended both Carolina and Clemson. We do exist, people that pull for both teams. When the teams play our family is divided for just that time.
As to Clemson going to the Big 12. Please do not. If I had my wish you would be part of the SEC. But I don't and since I was in school at Carolina during the time we left the ACC I know there is hard feelings in Columbia toward Clemson (because we thought we had a deal and both Clemson and Carolina were going to leave together) and the ACC.
I just know, I always want both teams undefeated when they play each other. Leave out the hate and ugly comments that appear here and on Carolina sites. Appreciate what we have which is a small state with fan bases that support their school without malice toward the other but embrace the competition.
I'm 63 and this is the strongest I have ever seen both programs. We should all be proud of that and look forward to good clean competition.
This is far from the strongest the Clemson program has...

ever been! The current TV $$ gap between conferences is doing more to ruin college athletics than anything. Soon, only the members of 3-4 conferences will even have a chance. unfortunately for us, Clemson is now at a distinct disadvantage to USC simply because of conference affiliation.
Personally, I don't care to hear any clucking from any coot with or without any Tiger fans in their family. If you are a coot that lives next door to Clemson. You are still a 100% clucking coot with nothing to say that we would be interested of hearing. Cluck cluck fluck a coot!!!
March, I am sure most chickens would love to see us stay in the ACC. The monetary advantage alone for USUC plays to their advantage. As far as blaming Clemson when yall decided to leave the ACC, gotta blame someone for that epic failure. I just fear that we are going to be standing at the station watching the train race by if we do not make this move. I have been wrong before, and will be again, but college football is changing quickly.
