There’s some lawsuit that’s been filed against the University of South Carolina involving “Cocky Cloth”.
The creators of the “Cocky Cloth” — those white towels USC students waved at the Gamecocks’ final three home football games last season — have sued the university for breach of contract, claiming officials reneged on the agreed-upon split on sales of the rally towels.
The details about the money are predictably boring, but I did find this comment interesting:
In an interview with The State in October, Wilder said he hoped to recoup his investment but did not view the “Cocky Cloths” as a money-making venture.
“It’s all about giving that stadium some kind of identity,” he said at the time. “People just sit on their hands in there.”
The bloom has definitely worn off the rose at Willie Brice.
