Default Howard's Rock vandalized

Article

I was told Howard's Rock had been vandalized so I went and checked for myself and it has indeed been vandalized. A big piece of the rock is missing on the side that faces the gates behind the Hill.

We have learned Clemson knows about it and is working with local police to try and find who is responsible for this. From what we have been told the police are looking at videos to try and find the vandals.

From what we understand, the case that protects the rock was shattered and it looks like the vandals tried to remove the rock from its pedestal before finally settling and taking a big part of the rock.

When we learn more, we will report it here.

When the person or persons responsible are identified, I will gladly join/lead a lynch mob to exact appropriate justice and I'm dead serious.

Ironically I was going to hypothetically ask what Clemson people would do about a "Harvey Updyke scenario" when Will posted on it earlier this week. Gonna shut down posting for a little bit ... I'm that angry

I hope Clemson has security cameras in that area.

Inbreds. Maybe this will wake up our AD and administration.

There are camera's in the West End Zone area but not sure about that particular area. Hopefully they will be able to see something on film.

I am in full support of the death penalty in this case.

You can bet there are cameras on that thing. This isn't the first time it's been done.

What really sucks about this is that it was done, literally, 100 yards from the Police station.

I guess *******s didn't learn from the Auburn tree incident......

I hope they are caught and go to jail for a few months.

It's not like you can go get an "original" Howard's Rock...this is pretty ridiculous that someone would go in and do that; that rock looks much different now. I'm no detective but this reeks of Gamecock.

I've always said that General Sherman had the right idea about that place....he was simply burning the trash.

Fact is, "people" are jealous of Clemson and during my lifetime (56years) always have been. They are mostly jealous of the bond we have for one another and the great pride we have for our university and the traditions we have. This act will not change our spirit!! Go Tigers!!!!
