from the article: "Jim Holderman arrived at the university with a vision. By 2001, he vowed, it would be among the country's top 10 public university systems. The last four digits of his phone number were 2001. At football games, the theme song to the movie 2001 was piped into the stadium."




You should make sure your Clucker friends are all aware of that fact - Jim Holderman was the architect of their "2001" tradition.

Tommy Suggs came up with the idea of using the '2001' entrance for the football team; not James Holderman.

Holderman became president of SCAR in 1977, and began the 2001 initiative. The 2001 song began playing in 1981, in part to make people more aware of the 2001 goals of the University set forth by Holderman.

You can't possibly think that it was coincidence, or the two were mutually exclusive, can you?

Every time I hear that song at a SCAR game, I think of the slimy beady-eyed sicko. And now, you will too.

Better than having one of the most well known buildings on campus being named after one of the biggest racists in our states history.

Might want to take a look at your own campus before making claims.

Also might want to look at which University LED the way in admitting Black students in South Carolina.

That would be Clemson. South Carolina fought admitting anything other than white students for as long as they could.

meanwhile, SCAR's founders were actual SLAVEOWNERS

John Rutledge was a South Carolina governor and Supreme Court chief justice. Rutledge College was later named in his honor. The governor, born into a slaveholding family, grew up with a slave named Pompey as his companion. He was educated in Great Britain and returned to Charleston to practice law. Although Rutledge claimed that he disliked slavery, as an attorney he twice defended individuals who abused slaves. Before the American Revolution, Rutledge owned sixty slaves; afterward, he possessed twenty-eight.

Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, a Charleston native, was a lawyer, planter, and Revolutionary War general. The Charlestonian, along with his cousin Charles Pinckney, aided in the founding of South Carolina College. Seeing the lack of education in the state, Pinckney and Henry William DeSaussure planned the college around 1770 and brought their dreams to fruition in 1801. Pinckney College is named for him and his cousin, Charles Pinckney. Pinckney owned slaves throughout his life and believed that the institution was necessary to the economy of South Carolina. At the Constitutional Convention, he agreed to abolish the slave trade in 1808, but opposed emancipation. In 1801, Pinckney owned about 250 slaves. When his daughter Eliza married, Pinckney gave her fifty slaves. On his death, he bequeathed his remaining slaves to his daughters and nephews.

Henry William DeSaussure, Princeton graduate, attorney, mayor of both Charleston and Columbia, framer of the South Carolina Constitution, and longtime chancellor of South Carolina, participated in the founding of South Carolina College. Concerned at the lack of higher education in the state, he not only planned the college, along with Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, but also co-sponsored the legislation for the college. Contemporaries said that DeSaussure watched over the new college like a father. DeSaussure College was named in his honor. A plantation and slave owner, DeSaussure mentioned his slaves in an 1809 letter. DeSaussure wrote a friend that his slaves were in good health and that he planned to obtain new clothes and blankets for them.

sitting in USC student section with friends and a coot started throwing ice at me and my brother. We were not raising heck or nothing but we did celebrate some. Orange Tiger paws on our cheeks etc. Well when the ice started coming down, I looked back to see who it was and ask them to stop. The guy right behind me said, "awe, you can't take a little bit of ice?" So I knocked the heck out of him. His friends carried him out of the stands and they left the game. Security came to escort me out but my Gamecock friends told them it was another Clemson fan who they didn't know.

My favorite football moment is a play in the 13-9 game (2005?) after overcoming the 1st and 35 mess. The ball was handed to James Davis who ran as straight through the middle as could be done ... about 45 yards, settling in at the 1 yard line.

Second favorite is Harry O grabbing the fumble in the air and sauntering in for 6 in 1966.

1894: The number of students at South Carolina had dwindled to 68 and the legislature was clamboring to close the school. School officials were forced to look to none other than Ben Tillman, then state governor for help. Yep ... Ben Tillman, the same man now harped on by Capons as "that racist that founded Clemson" was also that racist that kept the doors open that year.

Spring that one on your UCS friends the next time they want to talk trash about the man.
