View Full Profile helped the Tigers beat arch-rival South Carolina this past November, engineering a 35-17 win over the Gamecocks with a torn ACL. Watson told the USA Today this past week that losing to South Carolina isn't something he plans to do, and breaking the streak was his main impetus for playing with the injury.
“My high school coach was a big Clemson fan and I told him, as long as I’m the starting quarterback here, I’m not going to lose to South Carolina," Watson told the USA Today's Dan Wolken. "It’s a big rivalry. Who wouldn’t want to play in that game? It was a family decision. They put it on me, and it’s what I wanted to do. Of course people say I have a future down the road (to protect), but I live in the moment and that moment was then and I wanted to play.”
One of South Carolina's commits took umbrage to the claim and responded with a facebook response. Ulric Jones is a 3-star defensive end out of Butler Community College who signed with South Carolina last December.
