Always inspired by some good rivalry trash talk, YHC decided to sign up to Q the T or TH following “The Palmetto Bowl”, or what everyone from South Carolina calls the Carolina Clemson game. Fun was had, stats were learned.
Weather: cold – anyone who likes this weather better than summer, come fight me
Mosey lap around the parking lot and over to small grass field. Enlighten the PAX of the theme for the day, delight in their groans (most were S.C. fans. Banjo cheered, like a bauce).
70 SSH IC
4 Burpees OYO
Clemson improved to 70-42-4 all-time against South Carolina. Clemson’s 70 all-time wins against South Carolina are the program’s most against any opponent.
Mosey long way around to be back of the school. Inevitably hear “You know run groups are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday right?” or “Stridelite starts at 4:30!” about halfway through.
56 squats IC + run across field and back
35 lunges each leg OYO + run across field and back
Final score was Clemson 56, South Carolina 35. By mine and Kitty Cat’s unofficial calculated guessed estimations, that is the most combined points in a single game in the history of the series.
12 six count burpees IC + run across field and back
Clemson opened a season 12-0 for only the third time, joining a 12-0 record in all 12 games of the 1981 season and a 12-0 mark in the first 12 games of 2015. Clemson won the first 12 games of a season for the second time under head coach Dabo Swinney (2015). Swinney became the first coach in Clemson history to coach the school to multiple 12-0 starts.
38 crunches OYO + run across field and back
Clemson recorded a season-high 38 first downs, the second-most in school history and only two shy of the school record of 40 set against South Carolina in 2016.
18 merkins IC + run across field and back
On a two-yard rushing touchdown in the third quarter, Etienne broke Clemson’s record for rushing touchdowns in a single season with his 18th of the year. He entered the game tied for the mark with Lester Brown (1978), James Davis (2006) and Wayne Gallman (2016).
13 six count burpees IC + run across field and back
On the play, Renfrow (who wears #13) became the 13th player in school history to reach 2,000 career receiving yards. He is also the only NCAA player in history to ever have 13 years of eligibility, allegedly. BONUS STAT: Swinney earned his 113th career victory to tie Frank Beamer (113) for third-most career wins as head coach of an ACC program.
Mosey long way back around school to corner of small field. 10 reps of each exercise:
Alabama Ass-kickers IC
Big boy sit ups OYO
One legged burpee OYO
Mosey back to the flag.

Yes, we all root for a team, even hated rivals. But we’re all on the same team here on Earth. Show love and focus on what’s important in life. *insert picture of Feaster and Deebo hugging after the game*
