Sharpening the pitchfork tines. It's a little known fact that Ben, in his afterlife, has become decidedly non-racist. Now, he only hates coots. But he WILL open up the can of pitchfork on anyone who messes with Frank Howard's rock.

Time to hire a full time guard. If we're not careful


Posted: Jun 12, 2013 8:56 PM
 

the whole Rock will disappear before long. That would be unimaginable; far worse than spending $100k or so a year on 24 hour protection. At a minimum, security cameras should be installed.


like these guys?

We need to have a camera facing the case and an alarm installed so that if the case breaks everyone nearby will know. Maybe we had/have both...sure as #### hope so!

Did they ever catch the vandals who damaged the rock in

The 80's?

I fear we may need to lock up the rock and bring it out on game day.

I would hate to do that, but unfortunately, with what society is becoming, if we don't do this, someone will eventually steal it or damage it beyond use.

... why not have a webcam pointed at "The Rock" 24/7 ??

Seems simple enough.

That is simple but it wouldn't keep them from doing it...or STEALING it! We need to build the vault and raise it as the team rounds the corner on game day!

Of course no one is shocked. This is what everyone has come to expect from SCar fans and players. Especially after losing.

You might want to start by learning how not to double post.
Why would a SC fan want to damage the rock? That thing has brought us great luck over the past four years. We don't want to screw up any of our mojo right now so I highly doubt a SC fan did it. Of course, you do play UGA soon and their fan base is pretty over the top.

But hey, if it makes you sleep better or feel that a "revenge" for something will help you win next fall, so be it.

football history. You have to realize others enjoyed the sport for the last 100 or so years. Not just the last 4. One day maybe you'll understand, but probably not.

Put shatter proof glass around it (speand money to protect a real investmest) or protect the stadium properly. No one to blame but Clemson themselves. They obviously were not serious about preventing what happened. Not surprising.

the criminal can put the blame on Clemson. No way it was the thug's fault.
Clemson is indeed at fault for the choice of this idiot's to try to detroy The Rock. It is Clemson's fault that this thug chose to break the law. It is Clemson's fault...plain and simple.


PS: I bet when your kids get in trouble, they were just at the wrong place at the wrong time....or it was the other bad people that they chose to hang out with........Or could it be that your kids WERE the wrong people?


I kind of agree

If in fact there are no security cameras in Death Valley and on Howard's Rock, somebody in the AD needs to be held accountable for that. I think cameras would've been deterrent enough to prevent what happened, and at least would've given us a chance to catch those who did it.

Idiots will be with us forever.

Time now to case the rock in a see-through, tough cover from the pedestal to the rock. Keep it covered until home ball games and take the cover off when the team is at the top of the hill.

Get it done and get it done NOW!

On September 24, 1966, the first time Clemson players ran by the rock, they beat conference rival Virginia, 40-35.[

just saying, before calling someone an idiot... make sure you know a century is 100 years lol. carry on.

I am a Tiger fan who is a chaplain in a hospital. I work with a nurse who is a Gamecock fan. We were talking and she commented how stupid it was for anyone to deface the property of another school even if it is a rival. She talked about how hurtful it was when Williams Brice was vandalized a few years ago. She even come up with an idea about protecting "the rock." She suggested having an underground silo built so that the rock could be lowered into the ground and locked up and then raised up on game day. I know it would make it unavailable except on game day, but it would prevent vandalism. There could also be a new tradition started where the rock was raised just before the team came from the buses to the top of the hill. Just a thought, But it was good that a gamecock fan was irritated about the vandalism too.
