Let me explain it to you, they lost in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and looks like it will continue, you start to looking for excuses, just saying.
Two grand boys, Two state championships. 5-peat USC
My favorite was the person who saw Clowney at a basketball game and knew Clemson wouldn't be able to admit him? WTF does that even mean? Is he too big for the seats in the classroom?
Thompson just tweeted that DJ was the best leader he'd ever seen. That's high praise. He must have seen some of what was being said and decided to take up for him.
I agree with the first part, but when you read their board it really jumps out at you. I didn't go looking for it.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
That is because they couldn't get OJ Simpson.
who cares what the spin is from clemson ? I wish we could go another 365 days before we even mention clemson again.
Again, work in Anderson and hear it all the time from CU grads.
My response is that if CU students are smarter and our players can not get in it must be recent, because the old batch of grads. Including the one talking are pretty much as stupid as ever.
Kind of funny when he writes they're idiots if they don't stand up and start yelling Fire Dabo Now and then a couple of paragraphs below he writes about not turning on the players and coaches.
Carolina players stuck their foot in klimpsons ass and then broke it off.
I don't give a damn what ANY klimpneck punk thinks of our players.
Guess what I think of their players? I think they....no wait..... I know they are mouthy LOSERS. Four times in a row.
Exactly. I couldn't care less what those guys say. I wouldn't even argue with them. I'd just wrap myself up in the toasty warmth of victory while they strangle on the bitter herb of defeat. Pound sand, Tigers.
Spurrier...I appreciate him plenty
Whatever they need to tell themselves to ease the pain of four in a row. F*** em.
I can get the bashing Vic and DJ for attitude on field, and JD b/c of his impact on the field and some comments off of it. If I was a tater I wouldn't like them either, but where the hell do they get off on calling Roland anything. The guy hasn't done anything really since he signed with us. Don't get me wrong I think he blows up next year and takes over as #1, they can't even wait until he is 4-0 to hate on this kid. SMDH
I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I am all out of bubble gum.
Sounds like pannic mode! Evidently they need to get a life! I like it! We are under there skin big time.
They started that "academic requirements" crap for athletics in general on Plyler's radio show on the flagship station just after we had won our 1st baseball title (eliminating them just before, of course). That was also the June after our 2nd consecutive victory over them in football (something none of them & many of us thought we would never see or, for us at a "certain age", would never see again). They use it to soothe themselves. "Academic requirements" mythology=opiates!!

I can't remember which player but someone posted a term paper that he had submitted for a class and I swear he must have had a 3rd grader write it for him. Mike Bellamy was a quality kid. The list is long. Boyd and the Superman pose followed up by the Heisman must be appropriate. They're only mad because their players have zero to talk about.
What was it that Forest Gumpp said about STUPID?
There you go....all summed up in one paragraph. That is REALLY stupid.
Clemson is absolutely one of the most racist places I have been EVER. Yeah we have some racist folks in Gamecock Nation, but hell clemmers takes the cake, even worst then the GROVE believe it or not. My uncle was the first African American player to play Bball in taterville so we go quite often, well me and my 2nd cousin (his son) go quite frequently because he's been hypnotized by a life long kool-aid drinker. I hate em', cant stand em. If you don't have your orange shirt, cowboy boots, and mouth full of dip, smh either your a thug, sell out, coot, etc... its just sad I hope we continue to dominate them in every major sport for years to come. It is a great time to be a gamecock, and its absolutely miserable to be a tater it doesn't get any better then this. Go Cocks...

I know it's not easy, but the more we comment on those idiots, the more they keep doing it. Remember that Clemson is beneath Carolina in every way.....sports, university, intelligence, social status, looks, common sense, and every other way you can think of.
Here's what I know for a fact:
Our thugs bitch slapped them in the mouth. Nuff said.
I had no idea we were trying to field a winning Academic Quiz Bowl Team. I thought we were playing football.
I don't think the "academic requirements" folks understand that there are at least 8 different types of intelligence. All of us have all 8 (or 9, depending on your source), but in differing amounts. Clowney has more bodily-kinesthetic intelligence that anyone I know. Here's the list:
The multiple intelligences:
9 Existential (This one is questionable.)
People who use the word "intelligence" to refer to IQ rather than ability and aptitude have no idea what they are talking about. Clowney may be low in linguistic, very high in bodily-kinesthetic, high in intrapersonal - you get the idea. Most of us have at least one learning disability, though most of those aren't severe. To call Clowney "illiterate" (as I have heard has been done on a Clemson site) is ridiculous. The greatest pediatric heart surgeon in the world has dyslexia. He had plenty of trouble in med school because he couldn't read well. I don't sense direction at all - it's a learning disability. I get lost if I don't use a map or a GPS; that doesn't mean I'm stupid. My brilliant nephew, a PhD in neurospychology from LSU, cannot handle a list of more than 2 or 3 things to do. He shuts down completely with more than that at one time.
The wonderful thing is that Clowney has found something at which he excels.
