Country music star and former lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish Darius Rucker is a famous alum of South Carolina and a die hard Gamecocks fan.
Rucker promised a free concert for students only if the Gamecocks made a bowl game in Will Muschamp’s first season as head coach, and South Carolina did in fact reach a bowl game. Rucker is making good on his promise Wednesday night at Colonial Life Arena, and he tweeted about the show earlier in the day.
Well, some Clemson fans came after Rucker on Twitter, so he fired back at them. Someone tweeted at Rucker, “yay… you won six games and under.500!” Rucker responded with this:
That wasn’t all.
Clemson is fresh off of a national championship in football, but South Carolina just took home the title in women’s basketball and made a Final Four in men’s basketball.
The lesson here? Don’t come after Darius Rucker on Twitter.
