There’s no delusion like offseason delusion.

In the summer of 2002, if you visited the fever swamps of the Gamecock message boards, you would have learned that South Carolina was getting ready to deploy that season’s Heisman Trophy winner, a former baseball player named Corey Jenkins.

Jenkins didn’t win the Heisman.  In fact, if memory serves, he didn’t even make it through the season as the starter.  He did have one memorable moment, though not one that ‘Cock fans particularly cherish.

I only bring this up because it looks like we may have a new sheriff in town, boys.

Auburn fans are so cute this time of year.

      Excellent catch! Did the Barney Fife topic in the preceding thread heighten your senses to assist in the apprehension?

    I know I’ve said it before, but I love how 2 of the 7 SEC West teams will start a QB kicked out of UGA, yet we are thUGA. Go figure.

    you should try living in Columbus, Senator. AU people are all over the place down there, and the average AU fan seems to lack any sense of humor, irony or shame when it comes to football. They could be the Jerry Tarkanian/UNLV of college football, except that the NCAA at least TRIED to torpedo Tark. At least Cam Newton’s clothes and car were paid for by the time he got to AU; not sure about his laptop. ;-)
