  1. Hey Fanatics! With the Viewpoint forum shuttered, we expect this forum will get more use and have more topical discussions, which is great. Remember to present your thoughts and ideas with respect for your fellow Gamecocks, however; whereas that forum was a no-holds-barred, no rules affair, all posts in this forum fall under the good-conduct rules for the rest of the site. Be respectful. State your case. No name calling, no politics or religion. If that occurs, that post will be deleted and a warning issued, with further violations incurring suspensions or banning. We don't want conflict

  2. I got caught shooting bottle rockets of our balcony in The Towers. After a valient defense before the Student Housing Committee me and a floormate we're banned from on campus housing after our freshman year. The last week before summer break we went to a bait shop and bought 20,000 crickets, put towels under our doors, and gave the crickets their freedom. You could still hear crickets chirping in Snowden well into the next school year.

  4. Very similar to my choices: QB: Doty (he is miles above everyone else at the position in terms of game experience, even if it's not great in itself) RB: Harris (he earned this right - Lloyd needs time to slowly work his way into college FB and recovering from his injury, and White is still proving himself, but both as well as Rashad Amos will get carries and make up great depth) TE1: Muse (after Shi Smith, Muse was easily the #2 receiver last season, and Smith is gone. So like Harris, he's a de facto starter.) TE2: A lot of good options here: I put Keveon Mullins first - he

  7. I can't base this on any fact, but I just feel that we will be .500 or slightly above this year. I have no insider information or anything of the sort, but with the amount of work, preparation, and enthusiasm that seems to be happening in the program, I have a hard time believing that it won' t translate to some wins on the field. We should have a pretty good OL, and we should have a pretty formidable DL, as long as the players are coached and motivated properly. We finally have some depth on the lines, so that should help a lot. We know that Coach Lembo will improve the Special Teams, and

  8. Always think of that trick punt vs UGA where he ran it in from like 60 yards out, looking like a running back ... and the dawg mascot shaking its head on the sidelines ...

  10. Took a nice, short hike to Brasstown Falls on Saturday. It’s a pretty easy hike of only about a mile. They have added steps, and are building a bridge over the creek to the upper falls. I don’t like it, because it takes away from the natural beauty, but it makes it more accessible to some other folks. I tried to get a picture with the dog, but she doesn’t cooperate very well.

  11. The 57th Fighter Group in WW2, home to the 65th Fighter Squadron "Fighting Gamecocks". A nice big old chip on this Cock's shoulder. http://www.57thfightergroup.org/ Look familiar? Our logo was designed by legendary football coach Paul Dietzel, himself a B-29 Superfortress pilot in WW2. https://www.ww2online.org/view/paul-dietzel#early-life Easy to see how squadron logos influenced the design of our own from someone of his generation. Also the name for a restaurant near Atlanta. https://www.the57threstaurant.com/

  13. As someone who supported Muschamp, I am ashamed and quite honestly, it almost gives me a sick feeling in my stomach when I think about him. I really don't know how someone could be so out of touch or not care as much as he seemed not to care, especially in the last two seasons. I am so glad he is gone. It truly feels like new life. I also want to see true effort, and for the players to care, and not give up. I am hoping for a winning season, or at least .500, but I will be happy if we win the ones we should, and fight for everything in the ones we aren't supposed to win.

  14. I still have some Bloom County books somewhere in my stuff. My favorite quote from Bloom County was a song I think Opus made up, and it said "Oh baby, baby, you're tearing me to pieces, would you love me any less, if my tush looked like Ed Meeces's". I don't think any comic strips will ever compare to the triumvirate of Bloom County, Calvin and Hobbes, and The Far Side.

  15. My expectation? Not tied to a specific number of wins or losses. I came to USC in 1984 and my "expectations" were set that season. I thought it was winning a bunch of games. But over the years, I have realized that it wasn't the number of games we won that year. It was HOW we won them. And I saw that same "HOW" we won them two years later when we went 3-6-2. Only one time during Joe Morrison's tenure did I not see that effort. It was in a 59-0 blowout loss to Florida State, which I think was FSU's revenge for the hurting we put on them in 1984. Speaking of which, my expectation was b

  16. Taking a look at the current SEC East division I see this as the time to begin our climb up. I have broken down each team and where I see them in the next 3-5 years. Georgia - How many more years will they give Smart and crew to win it all. While he isn’t loosing he isn’t delivering what they want either. Without a SEC title in the next 2-3 year that seat is going to get very hot and Georgia will start prepping for another coach. Florida - Can Mullen keep the momentum going? He’s kind of in the same boat as Smart in FL won’t wait forever to win. This may be the hottest current sea

  18. DISCLAIMER: I realize this might be an oxymoron for many of us, including myself, depending on our level of intoxication at the time. LOL Since booth/table seats were always in short supply, we always had to keep someone in our seats if we needed to walk around, talk to somebody we knew, or just go pee. We tend to take access to music over the Internet for granted these days, but back in the day the record stores only carried the mainstream titles. I knew of Stairway to Heaven, but was largely ignorant of the rest of Led Zeppelin's other songs. They played this one a good bit

  20. I’m sorry to backtrack, because I forgot about the count, but I couldn’t let this post go by without mentioning it. My grandfather was one of the engineers who helped design this plane, and he was the head of the cowl department at Republic Aviation on Long Island, while these planes were in production. He was a very determined man. He grew up poor, and did not have money to go to school, but instead, went to the library, and studied every book he could get his hands on to learn, and taught himself how to be an engineer. He was incredibly proud of this plane, and how durable it was. He u

  21. 1986-1989 Snowden 3rd floor freshman then I moved to Lee St about 3 blocks away from Five Points. First time I ever heard Rock Lobster by the B-52's and Lola by The Kinks. Both would have people swinging from the rafters. On busy nights a few times we collected cover out on the street but we didn't work there.
