Clemson’s president does pushups in the mascot costume
University presidents rarely do anything that fans would notice unless it involves hiring or firing a coach.
But Clemson University president James Barker made sure to change that perception over the weekend.
After the Tigers went up 27-7 in the third quarter against Furman, the Clemson mascot did 27 pushups to mark the score. And Barker was there — in the mascot outfit.
Yep, Barker did the 27 pushups and then ripped off the mascot head to reveal himself to the roar of the crowd.
Barker is a 65-year-old doing pushups in a hot mascot outfit on a moving platform. How many of you could do that? And those mascot uniforms can get a little ripe. I'm just sayin'.
Barker is now the most popular -- and probably the fittest -- university president in all of college football.
