Frank Eppes is a great guy and a great attorney

He's a USuC fan but he's also a huge Danny Ford fan. Professionally, he's one of the best in town. His dad was the judge in Pickens for decades; good choice by the family.


This guys parents are stupid

What about the other two kids? He may have turned himself into the police. It only took a few seconds to vandalize. The rock should on be brought out for games anyway.

This kid and his family need to pack up and move to the west coast or Canada. His parents are besieged with phone calls now...things haven't begun to get warmed up yet. If this punk (anyone who does this sort of thing deserves the name) is a Clemson fan, pity him and his family.


Maybe they should turn off their phones

This young man should give his soul to the Lord, 'cause his back side belongs to the Tiger fans. Stupid move doesn't even come close in describing what he has done to his future. He might as well have been a mass murderer based on what's going to happen to him if Clemson fans recognize him in public. He will be safer and happier in prison! :)

Mr Attorney, your Client is getting exactly what he ask for. When he made the decision to wreck and steal a part of Clemson's history and tradition that has been at the entrance of Death Valley for almost 5 decades. By your Client knowing that he has never given everything he had to give for the coaches and fans who come into Death Valley to see our Tigers fight, battle and bleed for every inch of the turf in Death Valley. He should have kept his FILTHY hands off of Frank Howard's and Clemson Nations Rock. Tell your client Mr. Attorney, he is getting exactly what he ask for. Signed, A Real Clemson fan for 50 years of Clemson sports. A Real fan that would never do anything that would upset or hurt our fans as he has done.
P S, If it don't belong to you Rogers, keep your filthy thieving hands off of it!!!

Some may not care but a friend of the kid's family called in on Walt's show and asked some mercy to be shown. The kid was brought up in a good home and raised right. His Dad is a minister. So take it for what it's worth.

This kid and maybe even his family deserve every bit of hostility that is being shown to them at this time. Do you or they not realize the severity of this action or situation? What possesses an 18 year old to do something like this? If you ask me, he and his buddies need to be locked up in a mental institution because clearly, they do not demonstrate the civil abilities to walk among us citizens in society, and especially should not consider themselves fans of Clemson University. To ruin a Clemson tradition of almost 50 years for the hundreds of thousands of real Clemson fans, students, and alums because you want your own piece of the Rock completely blows my mind. I am more upset about the whole thing now then before when we found out it was broken. I am anxiously awaiting the motive as well as a public apology.


I've known plenty of ministers who weren't good parents

You guys need to realize..

[7]
Posted: Jun 28, 2013 7:14 PM
 

That your actions and reactions end up representing our university and our fan base. I have two degrees from Clemson and the vandalism was a bad thing. But in the end this misguided kid may have done us a favor. What if someone more calculating had gone in and took the entire rock? We see now how easily that could've been done. I did stupid things (nothing this dumb) and from some of y'all's comments I'm guessing you did more stupid things ;). I hope this kid gets a serious fine and is sentenced to community service every Saturday until he turns 21. And as Clemson fans we leave him alone to pay his debt for his stupidity.


Re: You guys need to realize..

[3]
Posted: Jun 28, 2013 7:39 PM
 

While I agree nobody should be doing anything stupid that would damage Clemson's reputation, I don't see this as a simple damage to property case either. The rock is a historical relic whose price cannot be estimated. You'll excuse me for believing that community service and a fine no matter how great aren't adequate. i'd rather see this guy get a little time rather than them plea bargain it down to get him to roll over on his accomplices.


Exactly how true Cristain Tigers should handle it. IHope

I am As true a Tiger Fan as anyone.My Doctor had to put me on Meds because i refused to stop watching my beloved tigers.That said, the first thing I will do is Pray for this young man and hope he learns from this and grows up to be a better person.I was angry too, at first and i am still upset. But threatening this immature 18yr old is not the way. I have tried with all i have to raise my three teenagers and the still make mistakes. ask yourselves what if it was your son that did this. you handle it the best you can. I would feel the same way even if it had been a COOT. TRUE CLEMSON TIGERS ARE BETTER THAN THAT!!!! I will pray for you all to see this.

True Clemson fans do have the same rights as you don't they. As in feeling what they feel in their own hearts like the way you did, but with feeling different than yours. Because I feel he should have to serve a couple of years time, with the max of the sentence being on probation with a $10,000 dollar fine to be paid by the end of his probation time. His sentence should be Five years suspended to serve Two years with 3 years probation and a $10,000 dollar fine to be paid to Clemson athletic's by the end of his probation... It that fair enough....

We should also remember there are two other fugitives that haven't come forward yet or been caught. Somehow I think this kid probably had less to do with the vandalism than the others. His truck, guilty by association, but I am intrigued at what the others will bring to the table.

What if, doesn't make what he done lucky for us over what didn't happen. No body else stole the whole rock. It has been there for decades, and the phantom person that you are talking about didn't steal it. Three bad kids defaced and stole part of it.

I was a Clemson student and did a lot of really, really stupid things.

However, destruction of public property, much less Howard's rock, never crossed my mind. I have no pity for the kid. Simply no excuse.


I hear that Micah Rogers & Robert Nkemdiche are good friends and that Beverly Nkemdiche masterminded the whole thing******

I feel sorry what this foolish youth just put his family through. It could get bad for them and I pray that they don't suffer for his foolish mistake. To say that he is a Clemson fan is an absolute joke. No Clemson fan would do this. We all did stupid stuff at that age, but there are certain lines you don't cross. You don't blaspheme God, disrespect your parents or harm your team's traditions............DON'T MESS WITH CU TRADITION!


Re: One word of advice for the family......MOVE!


Posted: Jun 28, 2013 11:14 PM
 

Oh I surely hope that no one acts in the stupid way as these kids did. I don't think that this deserves any physical harm to no one and especially his family. They were most likely in the bed asleep when those kids were out breaking the law and pissssing off the entire Clemson Nation.

he would be sought for vandalizing the Rock as soon as he did it? His prick lawyer says it was when he saw his truck on the video. The b@stard should be put in a cell with a bunch of horny apes on Viagra.

sentence, charges that are permanently on his record, and a fine of about $50,000 to buy us the a security system good enough to guard the Hope Diamond.


I can kinda understand wanting a piece of the rock though it's beyond selfish. But it takes a rare level of stupidity to think that level of execution is in any way covert. I mean the security camera at the stadium basically couldn't have been any worse (the rocks security system was embarrassingly pathetic) and he was still caught in about 10 days.


Why


Posted: Jun 29, 2013 1:25 AM
 

I just want to know why? If he is a Clemson fan .... why would he do this? I think that a good punihment for him and his buddies would be to face the music and stand at the Rock at the 1st game so they can get a 1st hand knowledge of what that Rock means to REAL fans. Just my opinion.


Re: Why

I can just see the "riot" now when the stadium announcer says," Please welcome Micah and friends as they see how important Howard's Rock is to our Clemson fans."

I'd sooner die before I let that piece of crap or his friends anywhere REMOTELY close to my Rock again. In case you forgot, the last time he was near the Rock, he BROKE IT. He has a lifetime ban from campus anyways, thank the Lord.

Unfortunately for us, fortunately for judicial system....


Posted: Jun 29, 2013 5:47 AM
 

Innocent until proven guilty is the law of the land. The attorney has covered this pretty well establishing that the client contacted him around his truck possibly being sought in relation to the vandalism. The attorney also stated the client has admitted to nothing. Us as a Clemson nation have to hope that this is all the attorney has and that the Clemson lawyers or justice department prove it out otherwise. It's great to have someone to pin it on but they have yet to PROVE he did it. Sucks, yes, but it is something that makes our country great. If MIcah is guilty, I hope they get him to turn on his friends, get the maximum legal conviction and never allow him in Clemson city limits again.

This was no "test", it was a stupid, classless act which also happened to be a felony. Wake up one morning with your windshield smashed, or your tires slashed, or your car keyed and we'll see if you aren't mad. That's not even a good analogy. The Rock is a pricless piece of tradition and history, and one does not simply turn the other cheek in a situation like this. Any true Clemson fan worth their salt would know that.
