On Wednesday evening, Gamecock football play-by-play announcer, Todd Ellis, had some interesting comments during Will Muschamp's call-in show about Clemson's Walk of Champions in pregame and the South Carolina fans reaction to it.
"The Tigers put us in a tough position as well," Ellis said. "One of the things that they do, and God bless them what they want to do in pregame they do, is grasp those arms and they walk from midfield towards our student section. Maybe that is something they could modify if they felt like it was provoking them in some way."
Two years ago the Clemson football team had many things thrown at them before the game. Ellis said the fans have a responsibility to not throw things but it happens at a lot of places.
"Listen we got a responsibility not to throw things on the field. No questions about it," Ellis said. "Can’t throw towels. Can’t throw water bottles. We all want to act with class. There is no doubt about it. It’s a tough situation. It’s an emotional thing. That’s not the first place you and I [Muschamp] have been to that’s happened by the way. It happens at a lot of venues."
