Gamecocks Over Gators

It hasn't happened in my lifetime, but it happened today!
The Gamecocks of South Carolina beat the Florida Gators, 30-22.

The bowl-bound Gamecocks also beat Tennessee this season for the first time in 12 years! Note to Clemson: Be afraid, be very afraid.
(This sure makes me feel better about the Patriots' 4-4 record

How is it that a guy from NYC is interested in the SE Conf?

Or perhaps you do understand that it is the Holy Grail of Football.

Well, Joel, first, I'm not from NYC (how did you get that idea?).

But it's easy to explain. I'm an alumnus of South Carolina (MA '94). I lived there for five years, which was long enough to get me "involved" in SEC football (I really didn't have a choice, living in Columbia).

Yes, I am a yankee, but I belong to the Southern province of the Jesuits.

I'm glad I found your blog. I'll be stopping in from time to time to see how you are doing. You are welcome to snoop around my neck of the woods too if you choose.

Oh geez. Is this what I'll have to do once I leave SC? Describe 'em as the "Gamecocks of South Carolina?" ::sigh::

And Mark is right. Living here one simply cannot ignore Gamecock football. It's the true religion. :)

GO COCKS! (From a non-Yankee, non-Dixie Southerner, of sorts ... :))

"It is wonderful to be young. It is wonderful to be young and a student at a university. It is wonderful to be young and a student at the University of South Carolina." This was a dignified way for His Holiness, John Paul II, Sucessor of St. Peter, Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church to say:
