Maybe South Carolina’s first-ever trip to the Final Four is an omen after all. As unexpected as the Gamecocks’ run to the Final Four has been, a tweet by a school rival on Sunday might be the most surprising event to take place this month.
That tweet comes from Clemson linebacker Ben Boulware. Yes, that Ben Boulware. Perhaps not the player anyone might have expected to be complimentary of his school’s arch-rival, but you can’t fault the man’s pride in the state of South Carolina:

Boulware is, of course, a native of the state, having been raised in Anderson, S.C. While he is certainly taking some heat from Clemson fans for his tweet, perhaps those comments will make Gamecocks fans rethink their opinion of the outspoken Clemson star.
