North Carolina governor hangs Clemson flag in office after lost bet, includes jab at referees

A nice twist to paying up.

Clemson beat North Carolina in the ACC Championship Game, so to honor a bet with South Carolina governor Nikki Haley, North Carolina governor Pat McCrory put a Clemson flag up in his office ... with a twist. He also put a referee's uniform on his desk in homage to a bad offsides call that ruined the Tar Heels' chance of an upset.

At least Clemson won this bet. Last season, former Tigers running back C.J. Spiller had to wear a Florida State shirt after a lost bet.
