Why do we need a rivalry trophy for a team we never played before and is not our rival. Didn't have one with Arky as our constant, nor should we have, imo. Columbia- Columbia, ok I get that. But this.....Can I get that trophy with some cheesy. Last time I saw SOS asked about this, my perception was he thougjt it was stupid. And so do I. The Annual Battle For The Burger. Guess we know where the $ for the 200,000 signage came . Speculative, of course

Yep. Graduated in the 50's. Left that part out because they were more interested to the tie-in to Hardee's. He played in the NFL and used his Championship bonus to go in on the first franchise. Still very active in the Spartanburg community I believe.

big regional rivalrys normally have names, the iron bowl, the red river rivalry, the "worlds largest outdoor cocktail party' LOL

We are both national recognized and highly ranked programs, not saying that it has to have a name, I kinda like the fact that the media has started calling it the palmetto bowl or the battle for the palmetto state, wish we had picked up one of those and ran with it instead of trying to come up with something from scratch like this was.

that being said they have gotten it rolling and seems like I even saw a mock up of a trophy for it, they have put a lot of effort into it and it isnt a bad idea, if we are gonna play for a trophy it needs to be something a little more meaningful (or at least signifigant to the state) than a fast food burger trophy

Hardee's is the best. They have Texas BBQ Thickburgers, Mushroom & Swiss Thickburgers, Bacon Cheese Thickburgers, Frisco Thickburgers, Monster Thickburgers(BOO! spooky lol), Original Turkey Burgers, Spicy Chicken Sandwiches, the list goes on and on and on. It's just magical! If you love crescents so much, maybe I can meet you half way. How about I get one of the juicy Texas BBQ Thickburgers and eat it into the shape of a crescent then present it to you after the Clemson game?

Richardson was also business partners with his former Wofford teammate Charlie Bradshaw who was the father of former Gamecock qb-wr, Bill Bradshaw. I'll never forget Bill rolling around in the Clemson end zone in '84 after Mike Hold scored late to tie the game and the xpt gave us the 22-21 win.

Given our State's ranking near the top of list of most obese states, I've always been amused that the trophy for the Clemson game was named after a fast food restaurant. It's dumb sounding and not at all cool like many of the other rivalry games in the country, but it is what it is. I don't see the point in just making something up out of thin air to try starting a new tradition.

How can you bash the Clash of the Crescent idea when our current trophy is named after a regional fast food chain? Almost anything would be better. That palmetto tree (and crescent) would look sweet in the new plaza.

Clash of the Crescent in literal terms means that something or some group from a Crescent area or cultural background called the Crescent are "clashing". So it really doesn't even make sense. The state is not called crescent. The people are not called Crescent's, so it just don't jive. It would have to be called something like The Carolina Clash or Clash of the Carolinians. "The Carolinian's Trophy" might work.
