The rivalry between Clemson and South Carolina is one of the best in college football, and we all know how fans of rival schools can sometimes take things too far. It appears that was the case at some point earlier this week when a giant Clemson Tiger paw print was painted near the 30-yard line of South Carolina’s football field.
On Tuesday, South Carolina cornerback Victor Hampton posted the photo you see above on his Instagram account with the following caption:
“It’s war they put a paw on our field so #disrespectful.”
It also appears that the perpetrator(s) used their can of spray paint to tag up the train car that sits outside the stadium — also known as the “Cockaboose” — with the words “Go Clemson.”
Oh it’s on now. Actually, it was already on with both the Gamecocks and Tigers expected to be two of the better teams in the nation this fall. While vandalism is never something that should be accepted, at least the paw print and “Go Clemson” tag can be washed off or painted over. That’s much less harsh than what this crazy Alabama fan did to his rival’s campus.
