Walk of Champions

Posted: Nov 21, 2019 9:55 AM
 

I don’t recall the coots having an issue with our walk of champs during their five-peat, so why is it an issue now? Ellis fits right in down there.

to a foot-long turd when they get their only TD against us, halfway through the 4th quarter down by 6TD's.

warms up, and they know we do the walk every game. so unless they are trying to create controversy, move our warm up to the other end of the stadium away from their drunk, bottle throwing students. this ain't rocket science.

each other to get to warm up side of the field which could lead to even more issues. Right now each team warms up on the side of their locker room. The only real option, which they cant do this year, would be to move the student section to other side. Of course the boosters who sit there currently might have a problem with being moved.


The logical option, and I know its asking a lot of UofSUC fans and students, would be for them to show some class and act like grown adults instead of wild classless animals.

Likewise you guys could quit doing it. You know you’re inciting the crowd when you do it. The classy and adult thing would be to avoid it.

The fact you keep trying to shift the argument toward touchdowns is a pretty big indicator you know I’m right about the pregame walk.

Poor triggered #####... It’s called a tradition. Something you Coots know nothing about because you copy other schools and change your gimmicky crap every 5 years. How about throwing trash on the field when the opposing teams score touchdowns? I guess that’s too “provoking” also? Snowflakes. Todd Ellis is a POS.


Re: only problem is locker room locations, teams would cross


Posted: Nov 21, 2019 1:13 PM
 

We do the walk of Champions at every game at every venue. We get bottles and batteries thrown at us every other year at ONE specific venue. Do the coots have a tradition of throwing at all their games,all their home games, or just the Clemson games?

I hope the ACC refs have the nads to penalize the bottle throwers. I think it was last week someone's mascot drew a penalty for celebrating with one of the players at the back of the endzone.


You are wanting Clemson to stop the walk because you absolutely KNOW that your fans can't stop throwing stuff. You also KNOW this behavior will eventually lead to negative publicity,shame, and embarrassment to your school.

Well Hunter Renfrow did get hit with a bottle after he scored his first TD in 2017. Also what is you excuse for doing the same on the UF game? It seems there's a common denominator and it isn't Clemson.

The fact that someone throws an object is completely on them. Nobody can make you do anything. The fact that our team walks arm in arm, and has for 20 years, had zero to do with anyone throwing anything at anybody at any time.

2020 purple level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

Questions for you


Posted: Nov 21, 2019 3:22 PM
 

since you keep shifting the argument AWAY from the touchdowns. When Hunter Renfrow caught a TD pass in 2017 and was hit with a Coke bottle, what was the rationale? Did he deserve it because catching touchdown passes is mean? When he celebrated with teammates was that considered "provoking and taunting the crowd?"

Thoughts on that?


Re: Questions for you


Posted: Nov 22, 2019 8:54 AM
 

You seem to be completely missing the point.

Throwing bottles is wrong, every time.

So just to be clear:

You think the right thing to do would be ask a team to stop doing their TRADITION!

Not expect your fans to act like regular good fans..... You are what’s wrong with our country right now. Don’t place the blame on the guilty.... shift it to someone else. Let’s reward failure instead of success. I can’t believe I’m even trying to argue with stupid. You will just drag me to your level and win with experience.

The Tigers do the walk at every...single...game. No other fan base throws bottles and trash at the Tigers when they do it.

That puts the blame squarely in the Gamecock fan base, where it obviously belongs.

Stop deflecting an own the classless and unsafe actions of your fellow Gamecocks.


Re: only problem is locker room locations, teams would cross


Posted: Nov 21, 2019 1:13 PM
 

Our problem solving techniques are a little different. You look at the problem and determine the root cause is us doing the walk. I look at the problem and determine the root cause as fan behavior that is unaccepatable at all venues we play in with the exception of USC. We have played in FSU, Auburn, UGa, Texas A&M, all bastions of college football fandom, and had nary a problem. We just have different analytical problem solving outlooks I guess.

You would argue that drug dealer shouldn’t sell dope anymore because my buddy has never had any issues from the other drug dealers he’s done business with.

I would argue that drug dealer shouldn’t sell dope anymore, but I would also argue my buddy should stop shooting up.

So rather than expecting your fans to, oh I don't know, conduct themselves like adults with a little class, Clemson should stop something the team has been doing EVERYWHERE for years.

Clemson teams has done this in Athens, in Auburn, in College Station, in Charlotte, and numerous other stadiums across the country. The ONLY PLACE that it has ever been a problem is with the uncouth losers in Columbia.

Gee I wonder why !?!?!?!

Really coot? That's your answer? Perhaps you should have suggested this years ago when TB started the tradition. There's nothing classless about the Walk of Champions, it's just a motivational routine our guys go through every single game. We could care less what the opposition thinks about it!

And...if the opposing team doesn't like it, they can lump it...period. Stew in your own self-delusion and pity all you want, but GROW UP.

Me, either. I always thought it was just a show of togetherness, since it was first instituted by Dabo when he took over as interim coach. At that point in time, we were a long way removed from being thought of as "Champions." Has Dabo actually referred to it as that at any point in time?

I thought it was an indication of being "ALL IN". To even recognize it as a taunt is beyond my comprehension. But, as we have learned over the years, any and every thing that even remotely refers to Clemson seems to come across to many Gamecock fans as a taunt. With their program being in a state of turmoil throughout their history appears to create a degree of sensitivity beyond normal.

I thought it was originally termed the “All In Walk” but I could be mistaken about that. As has been stated it’s been a team unity thing for at least a decade. It has NEVER been viewed as anything like a taunting gesture by any other fan base except those classless crybabies in Columbia. ......And they didn’t start crying about it until they needed some reason.......any reason they could fabricate in order to try to rationalize their abhorrent behavior.

They know they’re a classless bunch. They know their own fan base is out of control. It’s become their culture and it’s a very bad look. So instead of taking responsibility for their actions and trying to change it, they create a narrative to blame somebody else for their lack of civility.

To help all in Columbia, I suggest that we change the name to "walk thru". This would be something that they would be accustomed too. As in, "Clemson is coming to town. Rent is due. They are going to do a walk thru to check on their property." Hope this helps...
