Hey, it’s nothing personal.

Well, maybe it is a little.

“My mentality going into this game is that they’re trying to prevent me from doing something that I was born to do,” said Jenkins, a 6-foot-4, 350-pound senior. “I feel like they’re trying to keep me from feeding my family. I don’t really think less of Buffalo, but I think of them as the enemy. They’re going into the game thinking they’re going to run over us and they really can’t. We don’t take anybody for granted.”

If Big John feels that way about Buffalo, I can’t wait to find out what he thinks about South Carolina.

    Three things we didn’t have last year against South Carolina that I hope we’ll have this year:

    1. A healthy Alec Ogletree
    2. A beast in John Jenkins (he was still behind Kwame at this time last year)
    3. Solid special teams.

    If we have all that then I think we win this game by 2 touchdowns.

      that would be freakin’ fantastic. Then we could tell those clowns that they did indeed have the harder schedule. They had to play UGA and we got to play USCe instead.

        I betcha he won’t say a word before the SC game. Hope you guys enjoy watching your tough guy players swallow your cupcakes whole.

        • Cojones

          Yeah, but I’ll bet you don’t swallow. Right, cockbr**th? Wanna buy some Gamehens while they still have feathers?

    You’re not gonna like John Jenkins when he’s angry….

        Doesn’t that song make you hungry? You bet it does! Try my Jimmy Dean Breakfast. Old-timers at the VFW say it’s even better than a Phu Bai breakfast down the Hue by Perfume River.

          Many many years ago, Johnny Carson once referred to some conservative politician as being “to the right of Jimmy Dean Sausage.” Made absolutely no sense, but somehow worked. So does “to the left of tofu.”

          I do love me some Jimmy Dean Sausage, though….

            As most of you know, or at least should know, I’m dead now and somewhere with Ron Reagan and Dick Nixon and, for some strange reason, a fleet of sailboats instead of yachts. Maybe we’re in San Clemente or Seal Beach. Johnny was, for a change, right but he didn’t even pay royalties. He also stole from me the one about me being to the right of Attilla the Hun

    This made me think of the scene from Fast Times at Ridgemont High where they wreck Jefferson’s Camaro and blame it on the rival team.

    What’s Big John driving these days? Hopefully not Mudcat’s car.

    Hey, Big John.. The Gators called and said you are a big wuss..

  5. Gamecock4ever

    Oops sounds like gawga won’t be catching Latty in the back field again. Just have to wait for Latty to get 5 and 10 yards down the field before the LB’s and secondary catches up to him. 2 TD’s my a*** LMAO @ the puppies

    • The Lone Stranger

      Weak sauce, dude.

      • Charles

        We’ll be the start of a three-game losing streak for them. It won’t be pretty. They’re this year’s iteration of Ole Miss 2009.

      • Cock of the Walk

        You guys are so cute when you copy each other’s little catchphrases. Lattimore has owned you for two years. Odds are, he’ll gash you for a third. Seems like the weak sauce is being served up by Todd “Throat Slash” Grantham’s “D”.

    • Billy Mumphrey

      You’re so cute. Did you just discover the internet?

    • Jrod1229

      A classic SC fan response.. very little english, lots of acronyms, no real comprehension. Please continue.

      • Irwin R Fletcher

        In the top 10 worst experiences of my life was riding the ‘shuttle’ bus from the Carolina game in 2003 back to the K-Mart parking lot on Broad St. where they had visiting trailer parks for a year or two.

        We were living on the Westside and thought that grabbing the shuttle would be better than a cab. That was the turning point in my life on understanding that some things are worth what you pay for them…the smell haunts me.

      • Cock of the Walk

        Which acronyms gave you so much trouble, Mr. Land Grant Education? Was it LBs or TDs? Not familiar with them, eh? I know – it’s tough. After all, this is primarily a football blog and we’re on the eve of the football season – talking about two football teams. Or did “LMAO” stump you? I’m sorry you profess to have had comprehension difficulties, but actually I think we all knew you understood exactly what was being said, but had to come out with a nifty little snob attack. Well, if you’re going to lay that card, be an alumnus of Vandy, Virginia or Duke. Or even Georgia Tech. But please don’t get all high and mighty with a UGA degree. The best you can do mocking a South Carolina grad is to be a kettle claiming he’s an ever so lighter shade of black than the pot whom he looks down upon.

        • Cojones

          Ahole has an “e” at the end (see 10:50AM post). You don’t even know how to spell your last name.

    • Jrod1229

      And if you don’t recall.. which I am sure you don’t.. Lattimore wasn’t exactly gaining yards up the middle.. rather on counter plays that CornWash was a bit slow to adapt to. But no worries, if you actually thought y’all were the better team last year then you can actively disagree with you coach.

      • Cock of the Walk

        I thought Jones was an OLB. That’s how he is listed on the UGA website. Guess he wasn’t good enough on the outside to contain Lattimore;s 176 yards, including his long of 26.

    Jenkins to “Latty”: “GET IN MAH BELLY!!!!”

    Apres Jenkins, le deluge, chikins.

    • Mayor of Dawgtown

      While we’re at it, let’s hope that Jenkins gets a shot at Clowney, too even though they won’t really line up opposite each other.

    ESPN Classic -right now- Georgia v. Florida (1981). UGA trailing 14-0. Buck Belue, Norris Brown, Herschel Walker, Lindsey Scott, Wayne Peace…As I am typing Herschel just caught a pass out of the backfield and ran to the corner, making it 14-7 with 31 seconds left in the first half.

  8. W Cobb Dawg

    JJ, we all want to see you dominate opponents, but I’m hoping the game is settled and you’re comfortably relaxed on the bench after the 1st quarter.

  9. “If Big John feels that way about Buffalo, I can’t wait to find out what he thinks about South Carolina.”
    Or about the cut blocking bastards of Vandy and Tech.

    John Chaney said that he came from further back in the ghetto than any kid he ever coached. “People always try to send you back there” he said. I have never seen a coach any more competitive than Cheney. An edge like Big John seems to have sure as hell can’t hurt this team.

  11. When asked about the Gamecocks Motel 6 allegedly replied,”when we’re through with their football team we’re going to rape their women”

    After the account of Keith Marshall and now this quote from Jenkins, I feel like I just read Fifty Shades of Red & Black.
