For the butthurt people over the Cornell Powell situation

[41]
Posted: Mar 3, 2019 9:47 AM
 

Kid is a life long unc fan. Yet he came to Clemson to play football for a great team with tradition. I have no doubt his love for Clemson and understand him supporting his childhood team. Understand that college is a business decision as well. Guess what, Xavier Thomas was life long Carolina fan as well as a lot of our players having other teams they rooted for growing up.

My point is, they came to Clemson to play for Dabo and comapny, and will leave better men amd players because of it.That doesn't have to diminish their love for their childhood team.

Step back a second, think about it, get off your high horse, and enjoy what Dabo has done for Clemson. Some of yall just want something to cry about. TD me if it makes you feel better about yourselves, but it's time for some of you to grow up. With that being said, I hope everyone has a great day. Go Tigers!

P.s. you donate to Clemson. What they do with those funds is up to them. Don't like it, don't donate.


Reading your post reminds me...

... it is better to have people think you’re an idiot than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Yes, I disagree with you. Go ahead and TD me, too; after all, I TD’ed you. Maybe you should also reconsider your TNET handle? I don’t think you have a clue as to what ‘All In’ means.



GO TIGERS!!!

It's no big deal, but I thought growing up meant pulling for the college you attend.

What do you think Powell's mistake was, pulling for the holes ?or attending Clemson while pulling for the holes

For a private school because I was offered a scholarship at the latter and would have to walk on at Clemson. However i never stopped pulling for our Tigers and imo I always will.

The basketball program is constantly fighting the reputation people only care about football. And then you have a football player wear a UNC shirt to the game and sit in the student section. You don’t think the basketball players see it on social media? They work to hard for that and deserve better. And if you think it’s ok don’t ever complain about close losses or anything from the basketball team because this kind of stuff is nothing but harmful

Yes! Totally tasteless and disgusting.


Nothing wrong with him being a UNC bball fan at heart

[22]
Posted: Mar 3, 2019 10:20 AM
 

but he used Clemson student tickets to sit close to the action and fully deck himself out in the opposing teams gear. Him growing up a big UNC fan doesn't matter in this circumstance as he is now a Clemson student athlete and should not be publicly and actively rooting for the failure of Clemson in any discipline.

Exactly.......if he wanted to wear a UNCheat shirt he should have attended that frigging school.....instead of ours......his loyalty does not belong with Clemson.....hope Dabo saw this because he is not “All In”......or very smart in my opinion to pull a stunt like this while attending Clemson and playing for OUR football team......Go Tigers!!!!!


Disrespectful at best

[12]
Posted: Mar 3, 2019 10:22 AM
 

Clemson University just paid for his ticket to root against them. Disrespectful to the university and fellow student athletes much less us butthurt fans!

Bu||$hit, he can wear baby blue any other time, not at a CU basketball game against the hated tarholes.

And if the only reason he came to Clemson was a business arrangement then he, and you, can don your robin-blue and head to Chapel Hole.

I agree completely.


It is certainly CP’s right to root for whomever he chooses BUT

[11]
Posted: Mar 3, 2019 10:46 AM
 

wearing the opposing team’s gear while sitting in Clemson’s student sectio is not classy and invites criticism. Did he really think it would go unnoticed? Of course he didn’t.

Don't begrudge him his right to pull for the team he's

followed since childhood. However, it does show disrespect for his fellow student athletes to wear the opposing teams colors at a game.

Never seen what this kid did before now. I guess he can’t get noticed any other way. Maybe he will get on the field if he would transfer. I do not have any respect for turds like him, or Josh Belk for that matter. The are both busts and why they came to Clemson is beyond me except to use the program for a quality education, seeing attending class is not even a requirement in Chapel Hill. Enjoy this while you can you will never make a difference on the field at Clemson. Heck you probably won’t get on the field.

You better become a fan of CLEMSON. And for an athlete wear opposing teams attire for other fellow athletes game on senior night no
less is extremely disrespectful. I'd kick his ### off the team. Period.

What a bunch of old homers. All this "get off my lawn bullsh$t is so annoying. No matter what happens, people on this board always have something to complain about. Clemson just won the natty two out of the last 3 years and yet all most of you guys want to talk about is a God #### shirt that a 22 year old is wearing.

Would love seeing the reaction he would get if he was in Chapel Hole if he was sitting in the TarHole student section wearing a Clemson t-shirt while we were trying to win a game we haven't won in, what is now 65 straight attempts.


He couldnt do it ....

tarholes would not let him sit in the unc student section with a Clemson tshirt, even if he had a reserved ticket for a reserved seat .. I guarantee you that

agreed with you. I don't have any problem with Powell liking and cheering for whoever he wants. It's the decision to wear the jersey in the middle of the student section on national TV that is the issue. I would say the same thing if XT wore a Gamecock jersey at the SCAR game. Powell is a well-known member of a national championship Clemson football team, so it's going to get noticed. I'm sure the basketball players know who he is, and it's disrespectful to them and all their hard work. It was just a poor choice.


The fact that he isn’t a Clemson fan first and foremost is a concern.

[10]
Posted: Mar 3, 2019 1:10 PM
 

If he still wants to pull for UNC, that’s his right, but not when they are playing his school. It was really poor form to show up to the game, wearing a UNC shirt, while sitting in the Clemson section.

I don’t understand how anyone here doesn’t see a problem with this.

I see the problem, poor choice. I don’t see the vile, vitriol, hate, etc that these supposed Clemson fans are showing a contributing member of our National Championship Team. Maybe it was a dare or he thought it was a lark. Poor judgement but let’s not hang him for it

Be a fan of any team you want, but it is bad taste to wear the colors of another team in the student section when you are an athlete at said school.

You don’t have to wear a UNC shirt to pull for your lifelong team. Especially when it’s playing against your school at your school. I guess you’d be ok with XT wearing a coot shirt?


Re: For the butthurt people over the Cornell Powell situation

Agree. My lord, he wears a UNC shirt and he is classless, disrespectful and / or needs to transfer? It's a shirt, for goodness sake. Consider the totality of the person before you start coming to such conclusions.

If I want to read such silliness, I'll go to
FGF... "Trevor Lawrence shoved a mouthy kid in a basketball game! He a thug!" "Three Clemson players tested positive for PEDs! Forfeit the game and get the death penalty!" "Christian Wilkins goosed an OSU player! They are a bunch of perverts!"

While I think Dabo should advise players not to wear gear for the other team, this isn't a violation of a universal moral code. It is a shirt. Keep some perspective.


You’re clearly not a Clemson basketball player

Posted: Mar 3, 2019 1:32 PM
 

Disrespectful to see a Clemson athlete openly pulling for your opponent in your own gym. Powell hasn’t had the PT he would have hoped for. He will transfer.

To the OP - I grew up as a UofSuc fan and had no interest in CLEMSON. When I was ready to go to college, I visited the campus at UofSuc and CLEMSON. It was no contest and I have never pulled for UofSuc since the first week of Rat Season. Sorry man, but you do not get it.

As for CP, I only hope the best for him, but Dabo might not see it that way. CP made a mistake IMO, and must now face his consequences for his decision. Like I said, I hope all goes well and CP shines this year. He's a really good player that has made some mistakes, and it will continue to cost him if he makes more of them.


That excuse is as weak as cat pee.


Posted: Mar 4, 2019 1:40 PM
 

There is no defense. What Powell did was stupid and insensitive.


It's a big deal

[3]
Posted: Mar 4, 2019 1:48 PM
 

Clemson is paying for his education. He has access to all the things scholarship football athletes have - they are immense. Huge slap in the face to Clemson that he wore that shirt inside Littlejohn. It's a big deal, very disrespectful
