Clemson Football: Assistant Coach Tweets Picture From Inside Office, Twilight Pictures Galore

Countless storylines emerged from National Signing Day 2013. While much of the discussion centered around five-star studs like Eddie Vanderdoes and Robert Nkemdiche, other, less football-y stories have taken the Internet by storm.

Clemson’s running backs coach, Tony Elliott, has become the butt of a few jokes, thanks in large part to a picture posted by recruiting coordinator Jeff Scott, which highlights Elliott holding up a National Letter of Intent … and a bunch of Twilight posters in the corner of the office:


If you’re counting correctly, that’s three Twilight posters and one picture hung on a cabinet that has a face photoshopped in the place of Bella, and about three pictures underneath those¬†cabinets. Oh, and some framed pictures on top of those cabinets.

We’re sure there’s more, but the point is that Clemson football really, really,¬†really likes Twilight. Of course, they’ll deny it because, let’s be honest, it’s incredibly nerdy and doesn’t fit the sense of machismo you’d expect from a football program like the Tigers.

Or perhaps this was a recruiting tool, and maybe most high school football players are actually closet Twilight fans.

Most likely though, the Clemson coaching staff will address it briefly in a slightly-awkward presser, blame it on their daughters, and claim to have nothing to do with it.

As long as Clemson is bringing in top-flight talent and earning top-15 recruiting classes (much like they did this year), we’re sure no one’s going to mind their blatant denial for their love of the film/book series.
