Detention enjoyed a nice little rivalry workout this morning. Fresh off a 38-3 steamrolling of the in-state rival South Carolina Gamecocks , Clemson and the fightin’ Dabos are looking to clinch their 5th consecutive ACC championship, something that has never done before (not even in 1969). We used this morning to celebrate the rivalry and some of it’s history.

Mosey to basketball court in back for a warm up
71 SSH (lots of good chatter here to start the day)
42 TTT (Wingback started a revolt, not sure how many PAX really did all 42)
4 Windmills (may have forgotten these)
71-42-4 is the all time record in the Palmetto State Rivalry, in the Tigers’ favor.
4 Wide Merkins
8 Lunges (each leg)
12 Wide Merkins
0 Lunges (each leg)
4-8 and 12-0, South Carolina and Clemson records, respectively
Mosey over to the track and partner up. Partner one takes a lap around the track while partner two does the called exercise. Switch and repeat until your pair reaches the called number of reps.
35 burpees – 17 lunges
37 burpees – 32 lunges
56 burpees – 7 lunges
Complaining about the burpees has sort of come to a head here so we do a 64 second plank. The first 64 games of the rivalry were played in Columbia on a Thursday and was known as the Big Thursday Rivalry.
34 burpees – 10 lunges
Starting to run out of time (and PAX patience) so instead of 56 burpees and 35 lunges we do 6 burpees, I think we did the lunges first, and then mosey back to the flag. The PAX got off lucky as the next round was 38 burpees and 3 lunges. In some weird sort of way, burpees represented winning team points and lunges represented losing team points.
Each round represented a score from the past 6 years. By the time we got to 2018 game, lots and lots of yards had been covered and the PAX were really close. I think we were about 21 lunges shy of what we needed.
Mosey back to the flag.
Lots of laughs this morning, even from the Gamecocks in attendance (cough cough @bleviner). These guys are really good sports and posted even though the probably knew what was coming. Thanks for putting up with all my trash talk, dudes!
I know all you chicken fans don’t like our cult leader Dabo, but the man has some good quotes for life that we can all apply daily. Here are a few of my favorites:
- Do the common things in an uncommon way
- The only disability in life is a bad attitude
- If you’re gonna be great, you can’t ever be satisfied
Devo: We have a lot to be thankful for and a lot of things that others may not. Be a blessing to someone each day this time of year.
