A cannon shot in the facility arms race

You know how screwy college athletics are now?  Student-athletes have access to school-provided perks the typical student never sees, but the typical student can receive third-party compensation for things a student-athlete can’t.

If there’s some logical explanation for that, I’m all ears.

Boom, keep your powder dry.

Somehow, South Carolina managed to get shut out yesterday by a team that finished the regular season with overtime losses to Georgia Tech and a team that didn’t have a winning record.

At least the ‘Cocks now enter their favorite time of year, the offseason of content.

Bless their ‘Cocky hearts.

USC beat writer suggests that there may not be a unified SEC front for rejecting further playoff expansion because… well, because this is South Carolina:

The Gamecocks — now, in past years, in future years — have almost no shot to crack a four-team playoff field.

But eight?

Maybe.

I think you’re gonna need a bigger field than eight for that, bruh.

The high cost of a low bar

Talk about your rabid pursuit of excellence

Will Muschamp has won more games than any other coach in his first three seasons at South Carolina, and is the first coach in school history to take the Gamecocks to bowl games in each of his first three years.

USC appreciates it.

The Board of Trustees approved raises and extensions for Muschamp and assistants Bryan McClendon, Travaris Robinson and Dan Werner on Tuesday.

Muschamp was extended one year through the 2024 season, with the same $200,000 increase for that season that’s in his current contract.

McClendon was extended through the 2021 season and had his salary increased $350,000 per season. He will make $1 million per year in the new deal.

Robinson was extended through the 2021 season with the same $1.2 million salary.

Werner was extended through the 2020 season and had his salary increased to $700,000.

Imagine what they would have gotten if Boom’s team could have stayed within single digits of Kirby’s.

Then again, cannon shots don’t come cheap.

“If drinking were a national sport, USC would probably be number one.”

An alert reader emailed me the link to this, and all I can say is, what else is there to do in Columbia, South Carolina?

So many drunk University of South Carolina students are being transported to the emergency room during home football games that stretchers line the hallways of Palmetto Health Baptist, emergency services are strained and drunken antics slow nurses who are trying to tend to the truly sick.

“They try to run away, fight people, pee in the corner,” said a nurse at Palmetto Health Baptist. “It’s been that way the whole time I’ve worked there.”

Young, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, kids, Columbia, or no Columbia.
