If you ain’t cheatin’, you ain’t tryin’.

This is a brave thing for a South Carolina writer to say:

A coincidence that Spurrier had his first run-in with the NCAA law just as South Carolina was rising to SEC-elite status?

Outside garnet-colored households, the answer is “no.”

Inside the friendly confines, Gamecock Nation emotion managers better be careful.

I expect somebody will try to make the same point at SEC Media Days.  I’ll be curious to hear if we get the cocky Spurrier in response.

  1. My first reaction when I read the article was South Carolina has two first round draft picks and UGA has none and I thought WTF, but upon further reflection I realized our first rounders stayed and will be playing most of next season ,

        Don’t count your chicks before they hatch.

          Considering the Gamecocks lone title was an ACC championship, I guess you could except for a once in a century anomaly say their eggs never hatch.

        You shouldn’t post right after you wake up. It’s affecting your spelling.

      • What is loosing? Is it losing? or What? Is this a typical Cock spelling? Check your Webster dictionary i.e. if you have one. I apologize sounding like a GT fan. LOL Get out of here.

        Oh Bruth, your thuch a thavage!

      • You guys don’t even cheat well. When Southern Cal cheats, it has to vacate a national title; the ‘Cocks don’t even have a divisional title to forfeit.😉

          Senator, be fair. They do have the best home record for east division teams in September on Saturdays it did not rain and the winds were from the southwest at over 5 mph. Why, they even have the stadium banners and rings to prove it!

    Only a real loser would spell losing would spell it “loosing.” Priceless.

    And grammar

    “Correct” effect? Unless he’s going for a cheesy rhyming effect, how about “intended?”

    I am sorry but when exactly did South Carolina reach SEC Elite status?

    I do not think “elite”eans what you think it means.

    “Gamecock nation emotion managers????” If they’re on staff, that’s another 3 scholarships that should be docked next year.
