Another cannon shot

Like the swallows returning to Capistrano, the Gamecock fan with outsized expectations is back, baby.

The day after Georgia wins the championship Carolina “fans” are out in force writing off our chances vs them for the next century. It’s bad enough so many have retreated to the hen house to lay eggs instead of strutting around the barnyard crowing. Did they stop teaching South Carolina history in school here? Has the entire next generation descended from Northeast transplants? (that’s as kind as I can put it).

When have we not been outnumbered? When have we not been the underdog? When did everyone believe in us and no-one doubt us? Where are the descendants of those that stood tall at Fort Moultrie? Does Marion’s sacrifice not continue today? Where are the men of Cowpens and King’s Mountain and don’t give me any crap about Camden as Gates was a British Yankee. Where are men with the courage of Pickens and Moultrie? Do we no longer posses the spirit of Travis or Bonham? Would the Alamo have even been an event and Texas a Republic without Travis and his stand against overwhelming odds? Did the men under Hampton, Kershaw, Gregg and Longstreet surrender before the fight? Hell no!

Alright!  Who’s with him?

    Welp, I guess we need to just accept the fact the coots are going to rule the SEC East for the foreseeable future…

    Oh, with the homage to the Swamp Fox, Kings Mountain and Cowpens, I assumed he was advocating a unified Carolina….

    Very reminiscent of “Over? Did you say over?? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell, no!”

    Remind me how all the being outnumbered has worked out for them the last, oh, 150 years. I’m not sure a history of unsuccessful resistance to things they dislike is the point of pride this guy does, but it’s totally on brand. 🙂

    South Carolina: too small to be a nation, too large to be an insane asylum.

      “…to be an insane asylum.”
      That was the premise for Cayce’s South Carolina A History. Those delusional dumbfucks started every armed rebellion from the Proprietor’s War through “the late unpleasantness”. One would think they’d finally learn…

    As GWB said to Hillary as Trump wrapped up his inauguration speech: “that was some weird shit.”

    I loved this quote: “Carolina needs to focus on building that type of defense – ELITE! Then beating UGa and Clempson comes regularly.”

    So if I’m understanding this correctly, since SCU’s first season way back in 1892, they simply haven’t focused on building an elite defense…hence 130 years of frustration. If they only would have done as such, they would have dominated their two biggest rivals and would easily be a top 10 CFB program historically.

    Unfortunately for us, we just gave them the blueprint to dominate us in the years to come. So, while the Natty may have been worth it in the short term, did we just shoot ourselves in the foot long term?

      I have the blueprints for my house. Even though I consider myself a fairly good carpenter/handman, I SERIOUSLY doubt that I could duplicate it with the same quality. I could probably build a scaled down bare bones model, but nothing like the original. I suspect SC’s efforts to duplicate what UGA has done will meet the same fate. A poor man’s version of the original.

      A running theme among many of our rivals’ blogs seems to be that, by finally winning a national championship, we have actually somehow given them all the high ground against us simultaneously. Let’s just hope that Kirby is taking in to account this weakened position his dominance is putting us in.

    I grew up in NC, went to college in GA, and have happily lived and worked in SC since 1991. All three are great places, but I can attest to the words of James L. Petigru, spoken right after secession: “South Carolina is too small for a republic and too large for an insane asylum.”

    And then there’s this hardy perennial:
    “Gamecock football. Anybody can have a bad century.”
    My daughter has a well earned South Carolina diploma, but she loves only one football team, thanks to a brief visit with Aaron Murray at a signing.

    Sorry, Cock, yesterday South Carolina didn’t cross my mind and I didn’t talk with anybody who mentioned South Carolina.

    Kirby proceeds to beat the brakes off them for the next 3 years, then re-hires Beamer as a special teams analyst.

    • That’s the greatest “coaching tree” concept ever… raise guys up, send them out into the world, let them become head coaches and fail, only to come back and teach you what THEY learned on the head coaching landscape… in order to improve your own edge. Then, when the time is right, repeat the cycle.

    UGA alum here, but grew up in and graduated from high school in South Carolina. Only recently did I find out that one of my fifth-great-grandfathers was a major under Francis Marion. That said, the hell did I just read?
