            "I am sure Clemson police will investigate this thoroughly and hold the person accountable for this behavior.Thankfully, most of Howard's Rock is still intact and we will do what is necessary to protect it going forward.
            "I know our coaches and players look forward to rubbing Howard's Rock, running down the hill, and furthering one of the great traditions of college football when we open the season against Georgia on August 31."
