In case you hadn’t noticed, there’s been a rash of trash talk in the Palmetto State in the wake of the 2013 college football season …
This is a good thing as far as we’re concerned. Both the University of South Carolina and arch-rival Clemson University are Top Ten programs now – and fans of both schools are rightfully energized by their teams’ success.
Anyway, this week Clemson fans stepped the smack up a notch by circulating a “letter” ostensibly sent from All-American defensive end Jadeveon Clowney to University of South Carolina fans “thanking” them for their support over the past three seasons. Clowney is turning pro in 2014, and is likely to be one of the top five players taken in the NFL draft.
Never one to shrink from a challenge, FITS founding editor Will Folks (a.k.a. Sic Willie) – a University of South Carolina alum – responded that the chicken scratch wasn’t really a letter from Clowney, but rather Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney’s game plan against the Gamecocks.
And how well has that game plan been working out?
Still, though … that’s pretty clever. Especially coming from a Clemson fan.
