BATON ROUGE, La. (WVLA) — With both LSU and Clemson having a tiger for a mascot, comparisons are inevitable, but some LSU fans believe Clemson’s mascot is in need of a major makeover.
During the national championship Monday night, an LSU fan started a GoFundMe to support the purchase of a new mascot for the Clemson Tigers.
The organizer attached the following:
“After turning on the national championship game on Monday the 13th I thought bad for The Clemson Tiger. It seems that the University purchased their mascot costume from the clearance rack from TG&Y in 1981. All proceeds will be mailed to the Clemson University Athletic Department at the conclusion of the fundraiser. GO LSU!!!”
As of today, the fundraiser has surpassed it $1000 goal and sits over $1500.
