Biggest villains in Clemson football history: 5. Steve Taneyhill
Steve Taneyhill may have only finished 2-2 all-time against Clemson, but he sure knew how to get underneath the skin of Tiger fans.
Taneyhill, a freshman in 1992, took the field as the starting quarterback for the Gamecocks in the midst of a four game losing streak to the Tigers. With all the cockiness in the world, Taneyhill had one of the games of his life and led South Carolina to a 24-13 victory.
The mullet-headed QB decided to mock sign his name on the Tiger paw at the 50-yad line and he threw his hands up in the air right afterward.
From that moment on, Tanneyhill would always be considered one of the ‘most hated’ figures for Clemson football.
