Clemson Fans get Ready for Saturday at Cocky’s Funeral

The annual Clemson-USC rivalry football game may be in Columbia this year, but Clemson students held some events in the Upstate to get ready. On Nov. 17, more than 50 brothers of Sigma Nu fraternity took to the streets in their annual game ball run to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Then on Nov. 21, the Student Alumni Association held a pep rally and mock funeral for USC’s Cocky mascot. The pep rally featured the Rally Cats, the Tiger mascot, Tigeroar, TakeNote and President James F. Barker, as well as a greeting from Coach Dabo Swinney and the football team. But the main event was a “funeral” for Cocky, led by ROTC’s Tiger Platoon. Col. Sandy Edge, former Air Force ROTC commander and director of the College of Business and Behavioral Science Academic Advising Center, delivered the eulogy, followed by a cremation of Cocky by Tiger Platoon. The air was full of excitement, and Clemson fans are excited to cheer on their Tigers on Saturday!

A Dream, a Birth Defect and Public Radio

Kids dream of becoming doctors, firefighters, ballerinas. Will Hall, a senior English major, has dreamt of becoming a broadcaster since he was 11.

For the past three years, Hall has volunteered as the production assistant at Your Day, a public radio program through Clemson University and SCETV.
