Clemson vs. South Carolina: Future of rivalry is uncertain, but hope remains

The annual rivalry series against South Carolina is still on. For now. The series has been played every year since 1909, the longest out of conference continuous series in the nation. Full Story »

ND is playing 6 ACC teams. So they should be considered a conference game and usuc would be our +1.

I would be very happy if we never played the Gamecocks again. It's not worth having to put up with their vile, rude fans who have kept many families away from those games, including mine. It's ridiculous to play a team whose fans routinely throw objects at players, spit on and curse at fans - including children - and instigate fights at every opportunity. We're better than that and we should not have to be subjected to it. Let's play teams whose fans have a little respect for themselves and others and who are decent competition from year to year.

I've never witnessed such activities either, other than some objects being thrown from the student section. No point in painting everyone with the same brush...a bunch or drunk, rowdy students don't represent the entire fan base.

I don’t want to be a part of a copasetic rivalry. That’s Harvard vs. Brown. Sure, there are some fans(both sides)that go over the top.....i’ll Trade that to keep the longest consecutive non-conference streak alive.
Go Tigers!!!


IF they decided to open all colleges for the fall term

for students to be on campus, they will be closing them before October. State and local governments do not want to risk all of the students coming down with COVID. And, students will not simply stay in their rooms and just go to class.

I think there is about a 80% chance that all colleges will be all online in Fall 2020. Colleges/Universities do not want to incur the cost of housing and feeding students only to close and refund all the money. They lost millions in the Spring term. I think they are trying to figure out a way to keep all students off campus in the fall except their cash cow football players and staff/support. If they don't play football in the fall many, many athletic departments will be simply run out of money. They are all run as non-profits and spend every penny they bring in.

I would be very disappointed to see Clemson play ND instead of South Carolina!!! Although ND is a higher-profile game, I don't feel any loyalty to ND, and I really harbor ill feelings towards ND about their unwillingness to be a conference member for football. If they're too good for the ACC during football season, then they're too good for us during a pandemic and its aftermath. It would serve them right to be without an ACC slate this year. They made their bed, now let them lie in it.

Title is misleading. Makes it sound like the whole future of the rivalry game will be canceled like Texas-Texas A&M. We all know that's not going to happen.

The Big 10 has every right to make it's own decision just as the Ivy League did. This is not paint everyone with the same brush.


Hopefully the decision will be made based on "true" science

Yes, that hurts us from a strength of schedule standpoint. But some things should be a given. Clemson- Carolina is one of them.

Everyone knows the “agreement” between ND and the ACC is BS. Either be in the conference as a full member, or take a hike.

In the broader picture though, i have little confidence football will be played this year. Thinking either played in empty stadiums or spring of 2021 are the most likely scenarios.

No matter what....will always love Clemson University.
GO TIGERS!!!
ALL IN!!!

I hate it when people call that crappy school USC. USC is Southern Cal and always has been.

Give me some down votes now, please. No Lamecock can be the school with the most number 1 draft picks of all time. I don't even like USC, but that's an insult.

If it goes in this direction the legislatures in SC and GA need to petition the conferences to allow a swap. We'll play the coots instead of GT and GT can play thUGA instead of us. It would be a win-win for everybody; that is except for the coots and jackets, who are going to lose no matter who they play.

It is the law. Law makers in South Carolina passed a law that says Clemson and South Carolina has to play each other every year. I don't remember the year.
Many years ago I bought a book titled " weird and unusual laws in South Carolina." I'm sure one could find it if they searched for it. I lost the book somewhere along the way. I remember having it when I lived in Alabama. I moved back to S.C. in 2004 and don't have it now.

Its a bit over-stated to say the rivalry is in danger - I don't believe that for one minute and there is that law someone mentioned even if the rivalry was in jeopardy for some reason. Will we play this year? Who knows, but that has nothing to do with whether the rivalry lives on.
Anything in 2020 gets an asterisk that will be in the history books as long as they exist.
It would be great however to see normalcy return come the end of November - Tigers 42, Coots 10. Now that's normal!

As far as I know there is a state law in South Carolina that requires the two schools to play an annual football game. Perhaps the governor has the authority to cancel the game in the event of a public health crisis, but I wouldn't think that the ACC would be able to forbid it.(?) Can anyone enlighten me?
