Clemson Fans Mock Marcus Lattimore Injury

TIGER FANS SUGGEST ROLLING TAILBACK’S WHEELCHAIR DOWN DEATH VALLEY’S HILL … AND LETTING GO Clemson University head football coach Dabo Swinney showed uncharacteristic class and eloquence in responding to the horrific injury suffered last month by University of South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore. “This is a guy that to…


Clemson University head football coach Dabo Swinney showed uncharacteristic class and eloquence in responding to the horrific injury suffered last month by University of South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore.

“This is a guy that to me represents all the good things that college football should be about,” Swinney said, adding that Lattimore was “a winner in every regard.”

Good for Swinney … it’s just a shame that more of the Tiger faithful don’t feel the same way.

In a recent thread posted on the website, Clemson fans engaged in a debate over how to “properly honor Marcus Latimore” (yup, they misspelled his last name).

“I say the Tigers score 21 points in every quarter of our game on November 24 2012,” one fan recommends. “In a humble way, it would show our full respect.”

That’s actually pretty funny … in fact it’s damn near hilarious given that Clemson hasn’t scored 21 points in a whole game against South Carolina since 2008.  But still … comments like that are good clean fun.  And perfectly acceptable smack talk.

The next suggestions weren’t quite so humorous, though, as one Tiger fan said that Clemson fans should “push (Lattimore’s) wheelchair down the hill.”

“I hope whoever is pushin forgets to hold on … oops!” the next commenter adds.

“Ouch hahah that’s not funny,” another writes, quickly adding that they “just laughed out loud.”

Here’s a screen grab of the exchange …

Pic: Tigernet

Lattimore – USC’s career scoring leader – suffered a dislocated right knee and multiple torn ligaments during South Carolina’s win over Tennessee on October 27.  The gruesome injury reminded many of the career-ending broken leg sustained by former Washington Redskins’ quarterback Joe Theismann in 1985 – and there was some initial concern that Lattimore may have suffered career-ending arterial damage to his leg.

Fortunately, Lattimore was able to undergo surgery on his knee and doctors are optimistic that he can return to the football field in 2014.  That’s great news for a great football player – but an even better human being.

Obviously we don’t think these fans speak for all Clemson supporters (in fact our guess is that they represent an especially uncouth minority), however there’s no denying that remarks like these are great bulletin board material for Gamecock headhunters like Jadeveon Clowney, Devin Taylor and D.J. Swearinger.

UPDATE: Apparently we’ve been accused on (by?) Tigernet of manufacturing this story.  Here is a statement from our founding editor Will Folks in response to that allegation: “Our website was provided with a link to the Tigernet website – which we then accessed and quoted from faithfully in efforting a report.  We have never been members of Tigernet nor have we ever posted content there.  To suggest that we fabricated this story is demonstrably false.”

That is common talk amongst a number of Clemson fans. Unfortunately, USC has plenty of low-life fans as well.

However, it’s a stretch that some anonymous internet fan smack talk is considered newsworthy.

The comments were classless, but to (a) make this a front page story on your news feed, and to (b) suggest that the comments of three Clemson fans who are in no way affiliated with the football program short of turning on the TV while still wearing their long johns on Saturday afternoon is beneath even this website. As a Clemson fan, I hope Lattimore has a quick recovery, I’d love to see him back on the gridiron soon.

Thomas G November 13, 2012 at 11:40 am

Beneath THIS website? Ha! Nothing is beneath Fits! This just proves (again) that Fits really is for entertainment purposes only…nothing serious here. No better than tigernet.

I wonder what Sic’s handle is on gamecockcentral? Hell, he probably posted the stuff on tigernet pretending to be a Tiger.

You gotta be kidding me? Reporting on some anonymous douchebag’s post on Tigernet? Talk about a slow news day. Most of the time, the perpetrator is shouted down by someone with some sense.

Go to any fan site and browse a while. There are a handful (or more) of crazy sob’s calling for the death penalty for the coaches, opposing players, etc. Crazy comes out when you can do it anonymously.

I’ve got an idea – we should report that Fits News readers, and even it’s owner (Howard Rich) are all just as crazy as Big T!! Back it up with a couple of T’s off the tracks rants. Now that’s a group nobody wants to be in.

I am curious if you did a story where two SCAR on-air radio hosts called for bounty on the jaw of Clemson’s kicker around 2000? Actual representatives of the school asked for players to intentionally break the jaw of Clemson’s kicker. Rusty the Rooster and Trooper Del did this on air. Did it get any coverage?

Ol'Rufus November 13, 2012 at 11:33 am

You’re probably the only person who heard the piece…

OhNoNotAgain November 13, 2012 at 2:37 pm

I do not like your handle.
RIP, TrooperDel.
I remember something about this “bounty” It was said on a radio station no one could pick up. They were competing with Roy Philpott, who was just as nasty. They fed off each other.
It was 2000. Let it lie.

sid November 13, 2012 at 4:09 pm

I don’t think there was a FITS in 2000, so I’m guessing the answer would be no.

Clemson Bob November 13, 2012 at 9:36 am

It sounds like you’re butt hurt over the whole thing. It was a 100% sarcastic comment. I live with the guy who brought up the wheelchair idea (not letting go) and he is the nicest person you could ever meet and has showed nothing but respect for Marcus and this situation and so has 99% of the Clemson fanbase. We know what Marcus meant to your team and to this state and we have always respected him. This is a messageboard, worse stuff gets said on a consistent basis and you wouldn’t have a problem with any of it if you had thick skin and stayed off of rivals message boards. Nothing that was said was serious and you are a joke of a writer if you honestly think people would do that.

See you on the 24th.

Lee Atwater for President November 13, 2012 at 9:40 am

My nephew plays for Wofford. They have been instructed to take Jadaveon Clowney’s leg out by the coaching staff. Is there a deal between Mike Ayers and Dabo Sweeney?

Someone November 13, 2012 at 10:10 pm

They probably were instructed to block low because their smaller guts can’t block him low. Mike ayers wouldn’t tell them to take a leg out and try to injure someone. It was taken out of context. Cut blocking is not trying to injure.

Dayum Son November 13, 2012 at 9:40 am

Dayum son – you never been on that FGF forum on Gamecock Central? Vile, nasty stuff on there everyday about Clemson players and coaches. Really dumb stuff, too. Always figured most of the folks on there was Brookland Cayce grad who never stepped foot in a college classroom. Hope that’s the case anyway.

Anyhow, this is newsworthy how?

BradWarthenSucks November 13, 2012 at 9:41 am

There are douche bags on every public forum… including Gamecock Central, CockyTalk, etc… What would make this one any different?

Tigernet is an open forum that is free. Even Sic Willie can join and use whatever bogus name he desires and say whatever he desires. Sort of like FITSNEWS. So how do you KNOW exactly who said what and what was their motivation?

Hyuck November 26, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Hey fuckwad, since you’re in post-defeat hibernation mode again, let me seek you out to rub Saturday’s beatdown in your face. Until Clemson manages to beat the Gamecocks again, with the first realistic chance being in 2014, please find enough testosterone to do the following:
(1) Do not refer to Clemson’s overall record against USC;
(2) Do not mention 63-17;
(3) Do not refert to USC as anything but the University of South Carolina, although I’m pretty sure Southern Cal could have kicked any ACC team’s pointless ass this year;
(4) Do not bother to comment on USC football. Like Tweety Boyd and Dalton Freeman, you don’t need to talk shit until you can back it up. You have approximately 360 days before you have that chance again, but it’s more likely 725 or so.

Google ESPN WV just scored again. those guys are laughiing thier asses off with that.

It’s very easy for a coot fan to impersonate a Tiger fan on this site so I would take it with a grain of salt. I am a Clemson fan and have not heard one Clemson fan say anything like this. It actually has been the opposite.

oldtiger November 13, 2012 at 11:12 am

I can’t imagine this being anything but an uncouth plant to stir up negative emotions. But a story of this magnitude does prove one thing, Carolina fans only have two moving parts, a mouth and an asshole and it seems they are interchangeable.

E November 13, 2012 at 11:18 am

I saw it on Twitter before it ended up on Tiger Net…classless as usual, but NOT fabricated.

LogicalSC November 13, 2012 at 11:24 am

Look NOONE should take the nuts at Tigernet as representative of the vast majority of Clemson fans.

That website is occupied by some of the vilest fans around….lead by the website’s owner.

The owner of that vile site was the trash that coordinated with Dabo Swinney on the rant last year after SC beat the crap out of Clemson again.

Additionally, that piece of trash is the one who went on various radio shows when the Nkemdiche kid originally committed to Clemson and was saying: “Nkemdiche is Clowney without the character issues”.

Now that shows the level of trash which occupies that website and is an embarrassment to the Clemson fan base.

This is typical Ben Tillman follower logic. I can honestly say I’m not suprised in the least.

To act well mannered? HA!

Hey JT, what do you mean losing a few games in the series? Last time I checked your team had lost 65 games in the series.

Wouldn’t be surprised if USC-east fans weren’t posting that hate and pretending to be Clemson fans…

Cock Central is always positive, upbeat and never would talk trash about an opposing team/player. They would never call for a CU player to be purposfully hurt (Taj), now would they?

If internet message board posters meant anything, I would be wearing my “vest” on gameday, given what I’ve heard out of the cocks lately…

I think you misunderstood, Ma’am (not surprising considering your remarkable command of basic grammer)…it’s the SC fans that are making threats towards the Clemson fans and the Clemson players. It’s almost always that way, just like when the GCocks started that big fight on the field in Death Valley.

I, as a Clemson fan, fear for my own safety when our garnet clad cousins come to town.

Brad November 13, 2012 at 5:49 pm

You have a different memory of the fight at Death Valley than what I do. Late in the 4th quarter after a play was over a Clemson player tried to rough up Syvelle Newton after he threw the football, had him on the ground and proceeded to try and shove his helmet into the ground. At that moment a USC offensive lineman came to his rescue and that’s when a whole bunch of pushing and shoving escalated into an all out brawl. Many will argue that it started before the game at the bottom of the hill. That’s BS. It’s a rivalry and there’s going to be taunting going on before a game. Not to mention that happened over 2 hours prior.

true November 14, 2012 at 8:41 am

Clemson has never run out in the middle of 2001 to get in the way huh? And thugs at USC? dont forget the thug on Clemson in the picture clearly kicking a player in his head, or the thug for clemsux that threw his girl down a flight of stairs, then the other thug at Clemtech that beat up his girlfriend, or…. should I go on? But its all thugs at USC so you feel scared. thats bull shit.

Relax people! Will Folks is a USC alum who wants to beat Clemson just as bad as us Clemson people want beat USC.

Forget the wheelchair remark. I am enjoying the fans’ braggadocio about scoring 21 points each quarter. They sound extremely overconfident. Any loss by the Tigers and the fan base will go absolutely nuts. Another USC blowout and we will own your souls.
EVERYONE has scored on Clemson’s D this year, and many early.
And what good D has Clemson faced? I will not brag and predict a win. But I I like the way things are trending, including the idea that Clemson’s D is coming together now, based on a win over hapless Maryland and its LB turned QB.
Tough job stopping that. Not.

Clemson Bob November 13, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Say what you want chief, we will see you on the 24th. I can almost guarantee you won’t be in THE Death Valley supporting your chickens. We are out for blood and the team is going to feed off the crowd because it will be wild in there. Good luck.

justthefacts November 13, 2012 at 4:36 pm

Just the facts:

Clemson is ranked #7 in offense, #57 defense. Lost to FSU by 12 points. FSU ranked #11 in offense, #1 defense.

South Carolina is ranked #90 in offense, #12 defense. Lost to Florida by 33 points and LSU by 2 points. Florida is #104 in offense and #5 defense. LSU is #71 in offense and # 3 defense.

Average Defense Ranking for South Carolina’s opponents in their wins: 62

Average Defense Ranking for Clemson’s opponents in their wins: 75

Clemson average margin of victory 24 points.

South Carolina average margin of victory 22 points.

Bottom line…the stats even out. Its going to be an awesome game on Nov. 24th.

Brad November 13, 2012 at 5:58 pm

21 points in each quarter? They haven’t scored 21 points in the last 2 games combined. Clemson has played one team ranked in the top 50 all season. One fan wants to post how many points Florida beat USC by. He must not know much about that game. Turnovers inside the 5 yard line lead to some very easy scores for UF. UF only had 183 yards of total offense so the score was very misleading. The one decent team Clemson has played this year put up almost half a mile in offense. Clemson is good but not as good as they’ve looked against vastly inferior competition

Original Good Ole Boy November 13, 2012 at 9:45 pm

Justthefacts — those are raw numbers that don’t account for strength of schedule. Do you really think LSU and UF would be ranked so low on offense if they played in the ACC?

We will see what happens soon.

CNSYD November 14, 2012 at 9:12 am


I looked up the official box score on the UF-USCe game. There are no asterisks to indicate that TDs that resulted from TOs are worth less than any other TDs. Is UF to blame for USCe turning the ball over deep in their own territory? Should UF have backed up the ball so they would not be so close to the goal line when they took over?

ohnonotagain November 14, 2012 at 4:40 pm

There is no asterick on Clemson’s score against Maryland either, but perhaps there should be one indicating a linebacker turned QB was able to score on Clemson. EVERYBODY has scored on Clemson, more than once.
Laying a turd against Florida is a very true thing. I don’t make excuses for it. Laying a turd against FSU is just as true. I listened to the post game and all Yanity and Merritt were doing was making excuses for it.
You haven’t played anybody decent since FSU, and some might say that doesn’t count for much either. Strength of Schedule might be the determining factor.
We have heard this song from Clemson before, and you all here are doubling down on it. All i said is it’s interesting you are bragging so much beforehand. If you lose, the fall is going to be a big one in your psyche. I didn’t say when. If the team that played Georgia shows up, good luck. If the team that played Florida shows up. Congrats in advance. But right now, I don’t know squat about what will happen on the field. I do know what will happen to your fans if you lose. You are setting yourselves up for a HUGE fall.

Travis Zachary November 13, 2012 at 5:15 pm

This is such a non-story it is just stupid.

USC’s injured player received LOTS of media attention, and coverage and all the praise was really over the top. Sure he is a good football player who also has demonstrated a good attitude and sportsmanship in the past, but the roster is full of kids like that. At the level of USC or Clemson a kid who is not like that should actually be the exception.

How many comments have been joked about by gamecock fans about a death of a Clemson track coach on a jet ski? It’s been years and years ago but you still see distasteful “jet ski” jokes pop up. Those lattimore comments are not funny but neither us making fun of an event that resulted in death.

true November 13, 2012 at 10:43 pm

that is true, nothing is funny about anything that results in a death. However, if you read the same comments from the past, you will also see a Clemson fan has on numerous occasions makes a joke about USC players that have committed suicide. Cast a stone in his direction too. He posts under two different names all the time in here. Those are just as distasteful and honestly somewhat pathetic.

true November 13, 2012 at 10:45 pm

and to be clear, I have never made none of those comments of the “jet ski” nor do I think they should be posted in here.

CNSYD November 14, 2012 at 9:17 am

Comments that APPEAR to be from either Clemson or USCe fans on this board may be from Sic Willie himself who wants to create a flurry of response posts so he can impress advertisers with his hit volume.

not an excuse. it is a reason.

Though I doubt you do, you might want to get your facts straight in regard to who was involved with this incident. I don’t believe there were any recruits. Perhaps you are confusing this story with the one involving the USCe alums and a boat. You know, the one for which you are currently on probation.

VGardner November 14, 2012 at 12:23 am

You can’t read the board if you aren’t a member. Who cares anyway? One person’s comment doesn’t represent the entire Clemson fan base. Get over yourself and write something news worthy.

CNSYD November 14, 2012 at 9:14 am

Wrong. You do not have to be a member to read Tigernet.

jim November 14, 2012 at 7:31 am

USuC should be mocked, they are honoring him like he is America’s Hero, they did more for him than any military day or the guy that played for them after he retired from serving this country. South Carolina Gamecocks are classless and always will be, just like their coach.

up yours November 14, 2012 at 8:29 am

yeah, because you and clemsux are so classy. your coach got a cop fired just for doing his job. a policeman that protects the community and puts his life on the line to save others if needed all becuase you and Doodoo are too much of a pussy to do the same yourself, Hide behind a computer and dabo will hide behind his jackass brother while he, and people that support him, puts him and his family in a finacial problem with no job all because Dumbo was speeding and felt he deserve to get away with it. Support a scum like that makes you one too. true class there

CNSYD November 14, 2012 at 9:20 am

up yours,

exactly how much money have you sent to this poor unemployed policeman so he can feed his family?

up yours November 14, 2012 at 9:40 am

That has absolutely nothing to do with anything and you know it. have you sent him any money? probably not so what does that mean? nothing. the point is doodoo felt he was above the law, and since he wasnt he then had the guy fired. the officer had a job that paid him and now he doesnt becasue of Dabo. asking me if I have sent him a check is a punk question to ignore, or look away, from the fact theat classless dabo got him fired. you know it. you are better than that from what I have seen in here. bad question. then you come to the defense of an idiot that basically said Gamecocks dont honor the military. you and Jim have no clue what I or others do for service men and women.

up yours November 14, 2012 at 9:41 am

and what if I had mailed a check to him? would that have meant you agree dabo is an ass?

CNSYD November 14, 2012 at 10:45 am

up yours,

the point, which obviously escapes you, is that if you are so concerned about the plight of this individual, how do you think writing on a blog benefits him? Your wallet determines how much you really care.

up yours November 14, 2012 at 11:56 am

no the point was and is a response to Jim’s dumbass comment “. South Carolina Gamecocks are classless and always will be, just like their coach.” well pot meet the kettle if thats his attitude, only a “class act” gets others fired for thier mistake

Clemsonblows November 14, 2012 at 2:45 pm

Redneck Jim, everything about your overrated taters is a mockery from purple Barney jerseys to overalls in the endzone to the national trophy you bought and paid for in ’81. And your coach’s idiotic weekly comments only add to the mockery. Last year it was screaming like a little girl “We have greatness in us” after the Auburn game and “Make sure to watch our defense tonight” before the 70 point Orange Bowl drubbing. This year it’s nonsense like “The ACC will win a national title in the next few years” at the ACC media days and playing damage control by calling Nkemdiche’s decommitment a “mutual agreement” while the others jump ship. Your coach is nothing more than a decorated cheerleader who pumps his chest after whipping high school teams every week. The real question is how many td’s does Carolina win by this year?

ohnonotagain November 14, 2012 at 4:47 pm

USC reunited a military man with his family on field a few weeks ago. We wear those damn ugly unis as part of the Wounded Warrior project. We have a military appreciation game, just as I am sure they do at Clemson.
It is repugnant to attack USC’s support for vets. And it’s wrong. Dead wrong.
I almost never call out someone’s class when having this kind of discussion. But I am calling out both your lack of class, lack of specific knowledge about a situation, and your general intellectual capacities. All are lacking.
In addition to the many things we do to support the military, we threw a big party for a pretty good player, who is a class act.

Andrew November 14, 2012 at 8:11 am

I’m a Gamecock fan, but come on. It’s just some losers hiding behind a screen name on a Klempsun(sp?) message board. They would never say that in public. People like that get real brave behind their keyboards.

Todd November 14, 2012 at 8:39 am

I’m pretty sure that is Dabo’s tigernet handle.

Charlie Cat November 14, 2012 at 10:31 am

Its a tough rivalry between these schools. If I were a Clemson fan or player, the last thing that I would do is give the other side locker room material before the game. I am afraid all that these fans have done here is to awaken a sleeping giant. Go Cocks!

Alex Qsick November 14, 2012 at 1:08 pm

Quit Crying. I, along with countless number of Clemson fans feel awful for Lattimore, and wish him a speedy recovery. I’d say that’s about 99.9% of us. Don’t let one bad apple with the ability to type and hit “submit” stir up this nonsense.

Brokeback Tigers November 14, 2012 at 3:14 pm

The jet ski death involving a Clemson track coach, two Tiger football linemen and another Clemson student in 2006, was hushed up due to the fact that it was a homosexual tryst.

That’s why Foster didn’t bring his wife and kids with him on a Fourth of July weekend on the lake.

That’s why the Clemson students didn’t bring girlfirends.

That’s why four guys were riding bareback and doubling up on two jet skis, instead of taking turns driving the jet skis individually.

That is why Clemson covered up the facts surrounding the jet ski death.

CNSYD November 14, 2012 at 7:38 pm

The whole event was investigated by the LE agency who had juridiction. That is DNR. It probably will surprise you to know that DNR is a state agency. So how did Clemson cover anything up?

As for the rest of the BS in your post, it is just that. Now if you have proof, please provide it. I realize you little cock boys have difficulty with truth and/or proof but give it a try.

SOB November 15, 2012 at 7:43 pm

That track coach was a good friend of mine. You know nothing.

MariaZ November 14, 2012 at 3:51 pm

There are many people who feel terrible. I personally knew Lattimore and was devastated by the injury. MOST of the Clemson community is. For anyone to take any of the uneducated, and mostly downright stupid, comments from some of the immature or dumb people that post on Tigernet and try to make it a big deal is just unnecessary. Most of the Clemson student community doesn’t go there for a reason.

WillFolks November 15, 2012 at 12:46 pm

You knew him? I thought that was a funeral. RIP Lattimore. You will be missed.

Madcock November 14, 2012 at 10:27 pm

clemsux still has a football team?

Who knew?

Clem November 15, 2012 at 8:51 am


You do sound clueless. Great post. Now stick your head back up your ass.

BradWarthen5ucks November 15, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Just saw that movie Magic Mike. Color me turned on!!!!

BigT November 15, 2012 at 5:37 pm

Clemson needs to just change its name to HATE U….

thanks for reporting this FITS. As is typical, the media in this state just IGNORE this…yet they made a federal case of it when the HBC just joshed w/ Dabo…

Very un-happy, intolerent people at Clemson…

Terrierist November 15, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Hope the Wofford game is on prison TV so the Carolina dads can watch their sons.

so... November 16, 2012 at 7:26 am

i guess the that means the Clemson game will be in a shelter for abused women, A$$hole

Jim November 16, 2012 at 7:42 am

Terrierist, don’t forget former players too!!! Isn’t it time another USuC athlete gets arrested its been a few days!!!!
Thug U !!!!!
South Carolina Gamecocks = Classless fans and players….you all know it, get out your jean shorts, gold chains and comb your mullets for wofford. Now Flame away!

takes one to know one November 16, 2012 at 2:06 pm

With jackasses like you Jim and other classless taters, there isnt enough room for good ones, so I guess all Clemsux fans are classless. Nice suspenders there barney fan. and you may want to research that jean short comment. smart people know thats in Florida, uh wait now I know why you didnt get it, I said smart people know. You probably dont get that either, so let me explain. I’m calling you stupid. Maybe you can help your ex players beat up some women or throw them down some stairs. I here its a class up there at Clemtech.
Now Piss away!!

haha November 16, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Dont waste your time. People like Jim are idiots. Dont bother with them.

OhNoNotAgain November 20, 2012 at 3:28 am

Hey, Jim. Don’t send Flowers to your mama.

billybilly November 17, 2012 at 8:58 am

Clemson gets to do thier slip and slide entrance after rubbing on a hard cock (i mean rock), and Gamecocks are up for mocking? This is the gayest entrance in all of football, watch you can actually see the players jump up and yell “WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE” at the bottom.

on top of that November 17, 2012 at 9:01 am

I heard they were going to put steps on the hill, but didn’t out of fear that a Tater player would throw one of the Cheerleaders down them. Woman Abuse U!!!!

Clem November 17, 2012 at 11:12 am

USC Lite educates the woman beaters, right Will?

on top of that November 17, 2012 at 11:16 am

@ Clem But the clemson players dont get the education and still do it. Woman abuse U!! I guess you support that.

Ryan November 19, 2012 at 9:41 am

So you’re going to take the opinions of two people and claim it represents the entire Clemson fanbase? Every school has idiots with no class. Get over yourself.
