PETA Questions South Carolina's Mascot

Down in South Carolina, PETA is urging the Gamecocks to change their nickname from the Fightin' Gamecocks. It's not our fight, but if we were USC, would might ask people not to call them the Fightin' Cocks, as one fan's page did. But even that's better than PETA's suggested replacement: The Fightin' Gym Socks.

The University is having none of it, but a representative asks "where were these folks when we were 0-11?"

Naturally, in some quarters, Clemson is believed to be behind it.
