Boulware: ‘South Carolina has and always will be the little brother in this state’

Clemson linebacker Ben Boulware let his emotions fly after the fourth-ranked Tigers routed rival South Carolina 56-7 in Death Valley on Saturday night.

Boulware said he and his teammates tried to be respectful of the Gamecocks all during the week, and then they get word that South Carolina players were calling the Clemson offensive line finesse and that Clemson was their little brother.

“We ran for 200-plus yards … South Carolina has and always will be the little brother in this state. That just kind of annoyed me,” the senior said afterwards. “We were trying to be mature and respectful in that situation. I do not have to play them anymore so I don’t have to be nice to them anymore. South Carolina is our little brother and they always will be. It is what it is.”
