Clemson fans beg fellow Tigers fans to stop paw hand gesture

Corrections/clarifications: A previous version of this story included a name and quote of a person who purported to be a student at Clemson and provided a pseudonym.

Many Clemson football fans and alumni did not take too well to a new hand gesture that a few fans and students were seen holding up during Saturday's win over the South Carolina State Bulldogs.

What was supposed to resemble the famous tiger paw was seen as an "arthritic hand gesture" to at least one observer on Twitter.

The gesture came from a movement that started on Instagram by newer students of Clemson University to try to start a new tradition, according to student Wil Niesen. 

"By the looks of the reaction by the Clemson community, they may have bitten off a little more than they can chew," Niesen said.
