Haley thing’s not USCs fault but yeah
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
The University of South Carolina
A University of South Carolina
i'll let you have that while we take your biggest donor
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.
Read the whole comment thread on this tweet if you want more takes on the Darla Moore thing. Everybody throwing in their two cents
Rich lady throws a fit because she doesn't receive special treatment, everyone scrambles to make her happy
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
lmao Moore was fuck off rich/succesful before she married Rainwater get fucked
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.”.
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?
Interdasting. Have we become the ultimate sports university? With partnerships with the Masters, Panthers and MLS many are saying yes
Pav’s getting shut down. rip
man that is a bummer
Dick Harpootlian doesn’t fuck around
i side hustled at a coffee shop in school and he refused to use the bus bins. like would stir his shit at the counter and just leave his spoon with milk and sugar right there on the counter. knew he was a lifetime bitch.
what are the other places closing? behind a paywall and only saw that and moosehead (which is another place i liked). saw afroman there freshman year before it was moosehead blanking on the name now
Good riddance. Place was way too rapey

breakers and breakers live
no idea what the difference is. breakers is what used to be rocco's right
i could go for a nice everclear slushie right about now
breakers b and g is rocco’s. breakers live is next door (used to be the library in my day)
same here. library was good for a function don't think i ever went there on a normal night
This is very funny but for the record I was never thin enough in college to fit in that piss trough
I’ve been to breakers live as recently as last year. My band was playing and I got paid to be there though
i used to hang out at the bar where breakers live is, back when it was called Cockpit
kind of surprised that pavlov's hung on as long as it did
tavern on greene was, in general, more my speed
