HOLD THAT TIGER!
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.
