Gamecocks superhero cape, mask for sale in South Carolina's online store

WHAT IN THE...

The University of South Carolina has a history of selling some, uh... STRANGE items in its online store, so maybe we shouldn't be terribly surprised to learn that you can now add to your game day wardrobe a South Carolina Gamecocks superhero costume, complete with a cape, mask, and wrist guards.

Outside of flipping the cape around and using it as a bib, it's hard to imagine a practical use for this garment. Let's check the product description for some pointers.
