Exactly. You don't hear Seattle getting ripped for stealing the 12th man idea from A&M. So who cares if college players want to use Seattle's moniker?

yeah. I agree. legion of boom. That is just stupid. Good thing I don't think they serious. Green Small and Smith are good tacklers. Smith is really good at tackling, but I wouldn't call any of these guys hard hitters. If they really want to call themselves this they really should have to earn it and be better than Seattle's secondary. Good luck. The 12 man in Seattle is more impressive then the A&M version.

In what way? A flagpole? I don't care for A&M at all but they fill up the stadium just to practice cheers. That's pretty hardcore.

Seattle actually pays A&M to use the moniker. I think it was 100k upfront and then a small payment each year.

This is ridiculous. They can call themselves whatever they want as long as they are excited to be Cockers and can play some ball.

exactly.....I didn't hear anyone complaining yesterday when they picked us. I like the fact that they feel close enough to one another to come up with a name for themselves.....shows unity.

Lol. The Legion of Boom sounds a lot better than the fly swatters. Why does it matter what they call themselves, as long as they're playing for us, they can call themselves the Clemson paws. I'm just happy we got them. Ready to see this Legion of Boom in action!

What is stupid is you judging some 18 year olds who we should be thankful chose the Gamecocks. They can call themselves whatever they want, and don't have to "earn it". If they weren't pretty good tacklers, they wouldn't have 4 stars next to their names!

Try optimism, and stop being critical.

Green will be a true force for the Gamecocks!

Kind of like taking the name of a well-known group of Supervilllains and changing "doom" to "boom"? Kind of like that?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legion_of_Doom_(DC_Comics)

Don't act like "legion of boom" was reinventing the wheel. They were ripping off DC Comics. You're taking this way too seriously. They're 18-19 year old kids who are having fun playing a sport. And their desire to form "the new Legion of Boom" led to us landing as impressive a haul of DBs as we've ever gotten when we're in desperate need. Get over yourself.

Seattle doesn't use "Legion of Boom" to solely mean "how hard they hit the opposing team". It's a general concept.

I'm sorry, but when did "Legion of Boom" become some highly-renowned term that one has to earn? They're not claiming to be "Super Bowl Champions" or "All-Americans". Not a one of them said "I'm as good as Richard Sherman". They're just emulating guys they look up to. It's a fun concept that gives them an identity and a sense of camaraderie. Jesus.
