So there’s a big tiger paw on the lawn of the Matthew J. Perry federal court house in downtown Columbia, S.C.

No really …

The paw – placed in honor of Clemson University’s appearance in next week’s national championship football game – is reportedly the work of U.S. district court judge Joseph F. Anderson, Jr., a Clemson grad.

The paw is made of rye grass, is roughly fifty feet in diameter and “mysteriously appeared” on the grounds this week, sources close to the judge told us.

Take a look …

Top-ranked Clemson (14-0, 8-0 ACC) faces No. 2 Alabama (13-1, 7-1 SEC) in the 2015 title game, which will be held at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on January 11.  Kickoff is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. EST, with the game being televised nationally on EPSN.

The Crimson Tide – winners of the 2009, 2011 and 2012 national championships – have been installed as seven-point favorites.

UPDATE: More “Clempsun” fun.

Meanwhile Dabo’s brother is in jail:


Guess he missed Dabo’s Bible School lessons.

Bible Thumper January 7, 2016 at 4:30 pm

His brothers problem is mentioned in this ESPN story published today. If you don’t like Dobo after reading this story, then your heart is made of stone.

Classy. Dabo’s brother is still suffering the effects of severe head injuries from a car accident when he was a teenager.

Brilliant. Love David Cross :)

Superfly January 8, 2016 at 10:30 am

Was that what made him behave like he did during Dabo’s traffic stop, after both having come straight from the Esso Club after a several hour drinking session? Dabo’s narrative is all about Jesus and Family, so he reaps what he sows. None of it takes away from the outstanding team he’s put together for 2015, and the program in general, which is superb. Anyway, since when you are concerned about anything classy as it relates to your participation on Fits News?

Speaking of Classy January 8, 2016 at 2:55 pm

Classy is your boy squishy laughing about suicide of player suffering from head injury’s and concussions. I’ll disown Superfly for having no class when you admit on here squishy is a piece of shit, until then its fair game

Laff if you must, but Clemson’s Cooperative Extension site is top notch for lawns, shrubs, plants, fruits, vegetables, and many other related items.

Impossible, public institutions can’t do anything good!

If you feel that way then you’re missing out on some excellent information on Clemson’s site.

A guy with five penises walks into a doctor’s office. Curious, the doctor asks him how his pants fit. “Like a glove,” he answered.

Dabotard's Family Reunion January 7, 2016 at 8:44 pm

Love my crazy bro!!! He be nutz like me!!!

When Teasdall returned to the sideline, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney grabbed him by the collar and unleashed what may be the most ferocious, visceral, repeated, and near unending tirade I’ve witnessed in my six plus decades on this planet. Swinney would scream, relentlessly, in Teasdall’s face until he exhausted himself, then walk back and start the exercise in humiliation all over again.

Embarrassed players tried to look the other way – relieved it wasn’t them in the crosshairs. It didn’t seem like the first time they had seen their vaunted coach explode. The game proceeded for several minutes, apparently unbeknownst to Swinney, while he continued to vent his spleen. Vengeance, in ample doses, was administered. I won’t soon forget it. Teasdall never will.

And, to be clear, nothing beyond, conceivably, the first fifteen seconds of the stunning harangue, was anything like a teachable moment. This was simply a nearly 50-year-old man releasing his unbounded rage, repeatedly, on a captive target. The fury was hurled with such vehemence I doubt Swinney can even remember it.

Maybe pogo is an old OSU player that got hit upside the head one too many times by Hayes?

Had a friend who ran a landscape crew

His crew was installing the grass sod for a new home

While he was waiting for them to finish the owners asked him inside to tour their new home

As he walked into each room he would step over to a window, open it and yell “green side up”

After the third yell the wife asked him why was he yelling “green side up” to the crew in the yard

Ma’am he replied, my crew is made up of Clemson interns and I am just making sure they get the sod right side up

Glad to see the fellas at the Courthouse got it right

shifty henry January 7, 2016 at 8:13 pm

A couple was looking through their new home with Ole the contractor, picking out wall colors for the various rooms. They went into the living room first, said they’d like to have it in a pale green. Ole wrote something down on a pad, then went to the window and yelled, “Gren sida oop!”

They went on into the kitchen, where the couple
chose a light clay color for the room. Again the Ole wrote something on a pad, went to the window, and yelled ” Gren sida oop!”

This continued from room to room, upstairs and
downstairs – all through the house until they were finished. Finally, the husband couldn’t contain himself any longer, he had to find out what was going on.

“I’m confused,” he said. “Every room we’ve gone to, we’ve picked out a particular room color, you’ve written on a pad, then gone to the window and yelled, “Gren sida oop! Now, I know a little
Swedish and we didn’t choose green in any room except the living room. What’s going on?”

“Oh!”, said Ole, “I’ve got Sven out der layin’ sod for me.”

good stuff. i thought hed asked his crew to go get the sod stretcher tool

Anderson actually went to both schools and personally hoisted a USC flag on the courthouse flagpole when the Gamecocks won the College World Series. And pretty sure taxpayers did not pay for the rye grass seed which goes for about 20 bucks.

Gotta have something for Clem and son’s homecoming queen to graze on. Check back into Rod’s old Gamecock tabloids featuring the ethnic mascots…

Mom January 8, 2016 at 9:53 am

Having a team go to the National Championship is a win for the entire state. What’s wrong the gamecock fans who are cheering on ‘Bama. They’re bad sports. Incidentally, most of the gamecocks routing against Clemson in the National Championship are not college graduates and probably never would have even qualified to gain admission to Clemson.
