Clemson rushed the court after beating #17 Duke this year too.

Not disagreeing with that. Just saying I think we don't have all that much room to talk as Kentucky wasn't playing that good when we beat them. I don't consider beating a top 20 team at home reason to rush the court. So i think both schools look ridiculous for doint it. Granted they do it more than we do.

Yeah, and they had a "national championship team" that won the Chik Fil A bowl. Bunch o ametuers and they show it constantly in all of their programs.

I have, I understand it was our biggest win this year. Would you rush the field if we were to beat LSU or Auburn at home in football, two teams we have never beaten at home in SEC play? I don't know, it just seems silly to me to do something like that for a regular season game. It's not like we won a championship. The regular season in college basketball is pretty meaningless. It's a nice win and positive sign for the program, but nothing to rush the court about and run around screaming like you won the NCAA tournament.

That win over Kentucky was the biggest win for this basketball program in several years.

Another one of "those guys" apparently. The players were excited, the students were excited for beating a top 25 team, and one of college basketball's perennial powers. That game right there to a guy like Brenton Williams probably was the most meaningful win in his 4 years at South Carolina.

Not being one of "those guys" just objectively pointing out that laughing at Clemson and saying they should "act like they've been there before" is pretty hypocritical when our win over Kentucky in the regular season was no bigger than their win over Belmont in the NIT considering the circumstances. Both programs have been pretty bad lately and going to the NIT final 4 is just as big (I would argue bigger) of an accomplishment for them as beating #17 Kentucky during the regualr season was for us.

What's to motivate a Kentucky team to "get up" for a road game at lowly SC during the regular season? It's a meaningless game. If we were to play them during a game that mattered (during the SEC tournament or NCAA's) I would be willing to bet we wouldn't have won.

Again, I'm glad we beat Kentucky and I do think it's a good sign for the program that we do have some talent to compete, but laughing and making fun of Clemson for rushing the cout and then trying to justify our fans for doing it vs Kentucky is ridiculous. They are very similar circumstances

You can rationalize it however you want from either a SC or Clemson point of view. I'm of the opinion that no SC fans should really talk any smack regarding any other basketball programs right now considering the state of our own. Just not a good look.

Also, winning at home is pretty much a given or expected in college basketball. Overall home teams have won 69% of all games played since about 1950. Home matters more in college basketball than any other sport (statistically)

I think you either take the stance that both teams rushing the court is warranted or both are ridiculous, I don't care either way. Just think you can't say one is ok and then call out the other as they are pretty much the same

I don't think rushing the court against Kentucky is justified. They were ranked #17. Now beating them when they were #1? Sure, rush the court!

With that said, let's make the comparison. We beat Kentucky - one of the all time winningest basketball programs and a team in the Sweet 16. Clem5on beat Belmont. Not exactly the same thing is it?

With that said, I will give Clem5on fans the benefit of the doubt and say they were excited about going to the NIT Final Four at MSG. However, these are the same fans that made fun of us for winning back to back NIT titles. When we did it, it was a joke. Now they just reached the Final Four of the NIT by beating a team the likes of Belmont to do it and they go nuts?

The hypocrisy of Clem5on fans about the NIT and the absurdity of rushing the court because they beat a team like Belmont. That's worth laughing at and making fun of them - regardless of what you think about us rushing the court against Kentucky.
