Gamecocks Are The Beast of SEC East

Tide Traveled To Columbia, SC… And Got Jumped

In the world of college football, it seems as though ‘something special’ happens to a program on any given Saturday. This Saturday, the program was the University of South Carolina.

I don’t know what was in the air, and quite frankly none of us care as for a weekend, Columbia, SC was the center of the college football universe.

As the nation watched, Spurrier and Ellis Johnson were in sync and by the time Alabama could read the scoreboard, the defending National Champions had officially been jumped. I don’t pretend to be an expert, but I can’t remember a time when all of our players preformed to provide a victory like this. Offensively… Garcia, Alshon and Lattimore looked like “All-Americans,” all day long. On other side of the ball, Stephon Gilmore was all over the place ridiculous. It was fun to watch.

We’re all proud of the USC football team. What they did is a big deal and has really shaken up the college football world. I hope they can use this performance to propel the program to the next level.

For a 37 year old fan that lives in Columbia, perhaps the best thing about it all is how it effects the Midlands as a whole. No doubt about it, the week after a Gamecock victory is a good one, as the whole city seems to be in a better mood. In short, it’s going to be a great week in Columbia.

We’ll see what the future holds but at the moment, the University of South Carolina is The Beast of the SEC East and ranked #10 in the country. For now, I’ll just leave it at that. 🙂
