Default I just saw this and I thought I should share it

So the Barstool South Carolina twitter account twitted a meme of someone calling out into what looks like Death Valley (California) and asks how many Heisman Trophy winners does Clemson have.

I just smh and thought, "Do they really think that is better than winning 3 national championships?"

I know they were trolling but this has to be the worst example of trolling that I have ever seen.

In their crazy world it seems a Heisman is worth more than a national championship. I also imagine it is a bitter pill to swallow after watching Clemson, your bitter rival, win their third national championship in football.

In the world I live in one football national championship > Heisman winner.

I had a similar experience after we won the 2016 Title and their women’s basketball team won the NCAA. Guy comes up to me and says, “Pretty cool you guys won your title and then we got ours. Ya’ll got one and we got one to even things out.” I just looked at him and said, “yep, we’re even.”

When I was kid growing up, I had a friend of mine, his dad played at South Carolina and so did his brother, and he tried to tell me having a Heisman Trophy winner was better than winning a national championship. He convinced himself that was true.

I of course told him that was the craziest thing I had ever heard. I told him no individual award is better than a team championship.

Bar Stool has Team sites now? The only sports org worse than that pile of stool is fits news.
BTW we all know Herschel shoulda won the Heisman that year anyway. Rodgers only won it because they wouldn't let a freshman win it back then.

What happens when Trevor or Travis win the 2019 Heisman?

Easy, we cheated. It is the mindless coot answer to anything we can do.

The big question: Do they fly their ACC champs flag anywhere...If it's so important, surely it's hanging in the archives...

I always just reply.." Cool, the best football award you have is named after one of our former coaches."

That always seems to silence them...for a moment.

And, as quoted by that famous philosopher, Phillip de Jugg, "You can always tell a coot but you can't tell them much".

I would think in one more year or two at the most, Clemson will have their Heisman winner and Clemson might have two over the next 5 years.

It is not a flag, but the wording sits all alone in the stadium.
