Hope springs eternal.

It was another banner year in Columbia, South Carolina:

… Women’s soccer, with a 5-4-2 record, posted the only winning mark against SEC competition where standings were kept. [Emphasis added.]

That was the extent of USC’s success. It fell to 70th in the Directors Cup standings, its lowest ranking in the past 10 years. After placing fourth among SEC schools in 2002 and 2003, USC ranked 10th among the 12 SEC schools this year.

Just brutal.  But never fear, ‘Cock fans – the AD’s got your backs.

“I see the light in front of us,” says Eric Hyman, USC’s athletics director. “I say that very sincerely. I’m not saying that because it’s propaganda or because I’m supposed to say that. I believe in that.”

    Here’s a thematic sort of link that kinda, well, tells you everything you ever wanted to know about about the University of Sub Carolina sports (or lack thereof).

  3. “Top Moments is USC History”?

    Sheesh – top notch editing there. Somehow, it’s appropriate, though.

  4. By the way, check out the last entry in this post of Orson’s. Sometimes the truth is both painful and funny.
