Sadly this will be enough to hurt our state in NCAA committees eyes.

You believe these people were somehow pretending to be just regular ol SC rednecks and were really a part of some organized group who drove down from NC in an attempt to foil tourism dollars being spent in SC instead of NC?

This is the scenario you find...most likely?

I'll be honest but I think he is correct. Did you see the actual people doing it? Also are you aware that these games were moved to SC because of the NC bathroom bill? IE: Duke or NC fans that are upset about having to play in our state and don't want it to continue have more than enough motivation to bring those flags and protest in SC. Because that is the only reason the NCAA stayed out of SC so long.

I can see the vast majority of Clemson fans just by looking at them most of the actual graduates of the school and lifers of that University look nothing like the majority of the people that dawn the paws and pull for Clemson. Plus Clemson fans were all pulling for Duke and they are terrible at basketball and don't want our resurgence aided by the tournament being played in basically a home environment for us.

That is clear reasoning to defend his very vague posting about his opinion on it. Also no I am not saying there is no one in our fan base that supports the Confederate flag because that my friend is a lie.

It's kinda sad that our win is getting clouded by this flag. I don't care what you're feeling is on the flag but we're are the USA and we should be proud to fly the American flag in public, but if you feel so obligated to put up any other flags then do it on your own property. But I'm glad Frank answered that loaded question well.

I could believe people from NC coming down. Clemson seems too far fetched, but their own fan stole a piece of their own special rock, so who knows. As of now we have no identities of these individuals, and don't know where they reside, so as far as we know it's possible. As the saying goes "always expect the unexpected".

Well, when we had the issues at the Statehouse a KKK group from Shelby NC had to come down to stir up trouble. The NC border isn't too far from Greenville. Ask yourself why a KKK group from SC didn't run up to the Statehouse. It could easily be folks from SC, but anyone doing such a thing was out to harm the reputation of this state and university.

Either way it's a non issue that I'm glad Frank squashed cleanly.

Not true. Never has been. People in the USA are free to do absolutely anything they want to do, regarding absolutely anything. SO LONG AS whatever they do, doesn't infringe upon the rights of OTHER people doing the EXACT SAME THING. And what that means my friend, is that there are tons and tons of things that people in the USA are NOT allowed to do....


For example: you can't fly a flag of anything on MY property, if I don't allow it. And you have zero rights in this country to do so....

Every SEC program should be glad we have Martin. He always goes out of his way to praise the SEC as a whole, and you can tell he takes it personally the way national pundits look down on our conference.

Let me get this straight....

1- This issue was a somewhat minor issue that our HC handled well and moved on from.

2- People on this site (some anyway) are upset because they think this flag issue is clouding the real topic of our victory.

3- Same said people have posted several pages talking about the very topic that they are wishing the National media would drop?

Interesting.....

It was just some rednecks in a parking garage. Please, like you don't see it up here in NC.

A "progressive state" is a huge stretch, but he's trying to represent.

It is, have seen ESPN and company, our win is being grouped together with the flag controversy which detracts from the attention of our accomplishment in basketball. As stated earlier you can't wave your flag wherever you want, in most places sure but not everywhere and even if you theoretically could why would you? What does flying this flag at a game accomplish and what is it celebrating in relation to basketball?

As for the flag, just because something is permissible doesn't mean it's beneficial.

They may have had the right to fly their flag from their truck. But no one benefitted from their actions and it was a stupid idea.

But ignorant rednecks. What can you do? Their IQ probably didn't equal the number of ounces of whatever they were drinking. I'm sure the concept of what is allowed and what is the right thing to do goes right over their heads.

I said it wouldn't surprise me. It was just a post on the issue after I heard about it. I hadn't even seen the rednecks in the parking garage then. But yes, it would not surprise me. I grew up a Gamecock fan in G'ville. Those people behind it, have a hidden agenda. One that is against USC. They are probably upset about the flag issue, but there real agenda is most likely to tarnish an otherwise great weekend for the Gamecock Basketball program.

I may be completely wrong, but until I know otherwise, that's how I feel about it.

Sometimes the simplest reason is the most likely one.

My guess it was done by some idiot just because they knew it would become an issue and give some attention that they created. Like calling in a bomb scare or something. They did it because they could and now feel some degree of self importance, albeit mistaken importance.
