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?
