The rivalry between South Carolina and Clemson is always entertaining and usually the bulk of the banter comes from the coaches making offhanded remarks about each other’s programs.

But on Thursday, an artistic fan decided to put his mark on the in-state feud.

Joe Connolly is the strength and conditioning coach for the Gamecocks and he made sure to get in a little jab of his own by noting that there’s no fifth finger. Well, the Clemson paw only has four “fingers,” and the joke about the fifth refers to the “five-bombing” South Carolina fans do to Clemson fans as a reminder that the Gamecocks have won five straight against the Tigers.

Never change South Carolina FBS schools. Never change.
