If sc and Clemson keep winning and meeting in top 10 showdowns with now playoff implications, we will be right up there with the other rivalries.

This. I don't really care either way. A cooler trophy would be nice, but the way it's being pushed by a segment of our fans just turns me off. I'd rather see it occur naturally. I also think the whole tree statue thing is a bit over the top. I'd be a proponent of a palmetto tree trophy and/or some tree uni patches/helmet stickers.

If anyone gets on Spurrier's radio call-in show, please ask him about the Clash of the Crescent idea. I would love to hear Spurrier's comments about this. If Spurrier supports this, I believe this idea will become a reality.

Just wondering.. does the Hardees Trophy have anything to do with the fast food chain?

If it's a really stupid question, I apologize.

Yes it does. One of the executive members of Hardee's had a kid that played for clemson. He "donated" the trophy some time ago.

frankly, It is a piece of crap and I would prefer not to have some clemson tie to it.

I think the rivalry game currently being called the 'Palmetto Bowl' has a better ring to it. And if I am not mistaken the winning team always takes a trophy.

"Palmetto State Showdown" the winner gets the "Palmetto Gold Plate" not a trophy, just to be different.

Hey guys, some of you may remember a thread on this a year or so ago but I wanted to start a new one. But in quick summation here is the proposal:

The commission of two bronze palmetto tree statues, one located at Williams-Brice Stadium, and the other at Death Valley. Maybe ten to twelve feet high each, and identically cast. Each tree should have a spot on top where a scale crescent seen on the state flag, also bronze, could be affixed, and every year, Carolina and Clemson should play for that crescent.


Now I remember a few were not in favor of the idea and said it seems like a forced tradition, gimmicky, or the rivalry is fine the way it is but I see it as none of those and we shall have to agree to disagree and you don't need to support this nor sign the petition.

When I first read the article, which everyone should check out, (read HERE) proposing the idea, I thought it was incredible.

Think how it could help with recruiting since younger guys, I believe, would find mass appeal for it. The media would be all about it as well. I don't think some of you realize how unappreciated our rivalry is among the other widely publicized rivalry games. And some of you may say "I don't care, we don't need all the hype. The fans know how much the game means." But again, recruiting. I'd say at least at least 75% of USC commits didn't grow up Gamecock fans. Also, we can have something to be proud of instead of the crumby unrenowned Hardee's Trophy.

There have already been spikes of interest on this since the campaign for this was started in June of 2011. When Hyman was around he said the idea got around to him a few times and they were looking into it. My friend Tre (the guy who created the idea) was contacted by heads of both school's student governments, and I was even in contact with a sculptor from Charleston about creating the statues but I realize SHOULD this ever come into fruition, the schools will likely choose a sculptor. But for a while interest has died down, so I am trying to get the "viral" side of things going again during the major summer sports lull. Personally, I think this would look great in those windows underneath the outside part of the beast board, since OBVIOUSLY it would be a major target to be vandalized/stolen we can't have it in the outside plaza even though it'd be badass. But maybe the school could work something out.

Lastly, pleaseeee do not throw this thread off with the topic/argument on what the crescent actually is. Whether it's a moon, gorget, sign of the second son, or whatever else! The fact is, growing up I always thought it was the moon and I feel 95% of anyone who sees the flag assumes the same. But to be correct in the naming, there is no denying that it is actually a crescent. I thought "Battle for the Carolina Moon" sounded pretty cool but we'll see where that goes. Anyways, thanks for reading and please post about what you think of this and inbox me if you can help in any way possible!
