    it's hard to say exactly where the State of SC's leadership stops and the U of SC's leadership begins

    but it seems like it is primarily the Governors of SC who keep pissing her off

    sort of like how the NCGOP recently led UNC to give $2.5 million to the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

    They need to make Clemson eat some shit too. We shouldn’t be the only one dealing with the inherent fuckery of stateism

    SC's GOP loves Clemson because they're all a bunch of fascists

    ahem i believe only one of our schools titles themselves the "flagship university of the state"

    clemson is just a poor little ag school trying to scrape by while you big city hustlers get all political in the state capital

    From that tweet this seems like a tip of the ice burg situation...the quote about being continually embarrassed by her association with USC is much more telling...and frankly, same gurl.

    I mean isn't it a tad bit embarrassing that your business school is named after someone whose claim to fame is marrying into wealth?

    Not her biographer but I don’t think that’s quite a fair assessment of her career: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darla_Moore

    Also schools are named after someone all the time who has no particular ability other than writing multimillion dollar checks

    Notice how all of her accomplishments are listed after marrying Richard Rainwater while his biography includes many accomplishments before marrying Darla? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Rainwater

    Your second line is fair, how much would it cost to become the Donald J Trump Department of Political Science?

    Oh boy another Clemson troll? Let’s take a look at this excerpt from the Wikipedia article “Rainwater’s net worth almost tripled due to his marriage to Moore, whose net worth was estimated at $2.3 billion in 2012.[8][13][37]”.

    Also, she was crushing it in DIP financing and bankruptcy investing throughout the 80’s which was a tough game back then and still is today.

    Wikipedia is misleading. She didn't triple his net worth by marrying him, she tripled it by managing his investments. If you read the source article it's clearer:

    Rainwater got his start through nepotism, he started managing oil money thanks to fraternity connections.

    There's no question Darla Moore was an outstanding financier who became a multi-millionaire on her own, but it'd be naive to think she'd be a billionaire without having married Rainwater and being able to invest his ~$500m.

    Kinda like how it’s be naive to think Donald Trump would be a billionaire without his Daddy’s loans, contacts, etc...? Don’t see anyone saying the same about him. It’s just textbook sexism.

    Maybe the world of finance is foreign to you but people like Darla Moore would have had many opportunities to run a hedge fund or credit shop if she never married who she did. She would have most likely cleared billionaire status like many of them do. Your thinking is probably more naive.

    big triumph over that strawman

    you mean like Cathie Wood, same age as Darla Moore, far better track record as an investor, self-made, started a hedge fund, worth $250m?
