South Carolina legislature balks at bill to protect Clemson-South Carolina rivalry.

Remember the story from yesterday about  South Carolina state Rep. Nathan Ballentine, who wanted to protect the South Carolina-Clemson rivarly through state law? Well, that's not going to happen.

"A House subcommittee Wednesday shot down the idea of requiring the football teams of USC and Clemson to face off annually, saying it is unnecessary government intervention.

“These matters should be handled by the universities and trustees,” said. Rep. Lester Branham, D-Florence, and chairman of the subcommittee that voted 7-0 to deny the requirement."

Gamecock and Tiger fans are just going to live in nonexistent fear that conference realignment will tear the two school's rivalry apart, it appears.
