Not a fan of Clemson's Tiger mascot? You're not alone.
A group of LSU fans have kickstarted a GoFundMe to get the school a new mascot costume after seeing it during the national championship game. LSU beat Clemson, 42-25, Monday night at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
As of Tuesday morning, more than $1,600 had been raised, 50% more than the original goal of $1,000.
"After turning on the national championship game on Monday the 13th I thought bad for The Clemson Tiger," the fundraiser says. "It seems that the University purchased their mascot costume from the clearance rack from TG&Y in 1981. All proceeds will be mailed to the Clemson University Athletic Department at the conclusion of the fundraiser."
