ICYMI, newly elected President of the University of South Carolina Robert Caslen made comments yesterday morning at his introductory press conference.
During that time, he talked about many things: his new role as president, relations with students, comments made back in April and much more.
One thing I’m sure he was advised to touch on to get the USC fan base on his side was beating Clemson.
Caslen made the joke below, citing any team who beats Clemson be invited to an “ice cream social” at his house:
Here’s to eating a lot of ice cream in the future 🤙🏼😂 pic.twitter.com/vTou7Ipx1q— The Spurs Up Show (@TheSpursUpShow) July 22, 2019
As you can imagine, Clemson fans reacted rationally and didn’t freak out on social media (LOL)
Let’s take a look at some of the best Tigers fans showing off their IQ:
The amount of “rent free” tweets we got like Clemson writers don’t write an article a day about what someone in Columbia, SC said that day is pretty insane.
It's telling that the new University of South Carolina president can't set his own institution's goals without Clemson as a benchmark. When you are the best, you become the standard. Guess what USC fans, Clemson University never defines success in terms of the Gamechickens. Ever. https://t.co/8d44V3HzvX— Anthony B. Bradley, PhD (@drantbradley) July 22, 2019
Imagine thinking one :49 second clip determines the entire future of the University.
Ice cream instead of trophies. Y’all enjoy! https://t.co/EJcqEhNNK1— Michelle 🐅 (@cutigerbelle) July 22, 2019
Clemson fans really don’t understand how warming up to a fan base and making jokes works.

Is it though? How many years in a row has South Carolina won the overall Palmetto Series again?
Winners concern themselves with winning… losers concern themselves with well…. #Clemson 😉 https://t.co/mYcaIkOVbU— SSN Clemson (@SSN_Clemson) July 22, 2019
All 47 followers of this account thought this was a cool tweet.
Yes, the cocks will eventually pull one out of their butt. However, by then it will no doubt be 2053 and the tears of Clemson fans will be tears of joy because Carolina will have finally stopped ruining our rival history. #stepupspursup— Xan Taylor (@A1xanderWest0n) July 22, 2019
Just so y’all know, South Carolina isn’t beating Clemson until 2053…hahahahaha

How many times do I have to explain how “SPURS UP” DOES NOT translate to a dead rooster. Clemson fans are brain dead.
And when y’all graduate, you get lollipops 🍭 https://t.co/yDQB9JaHDr— Natalie Hinson (@NatalieHinson5) July 23, 2019
And when Clemson students graduate, their first words to a Carolina grad are “can I take your order?”.
Pretty riveting stuff. If you’ve made it this far, you’ve more than likely lost a few brain cells in the process. My apologies.
Spot the damn ball already.
