  1. I thought my fellow Gamecocks would appreciate reading about how the fans' third quarter tribute to the Hilinski's and Mental Health awareness affected Mark and Kym Hilinski: Locked on the Gamecocks September 20, 2019 Fearless Forecast Friday with Mark & Kym Hilinski Mark and Kym Hilinski are the parents of the South Carolina Gamecocks’ starting QB Ryan Hilinski. Ryan, a true freshman playing his first SEC home game wears the number ‘3’ to honor the memory of his late older brother, Tyler Hilinski. Prior to USC’s game against nationally #2-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide, Gamecock fans encouraged everyone to hold up three fingers during the first (Gamecocks’) offensive play of the third quarter to spread awareness for mental health Begins at podcast timestamp 42:25 F. Keith Allsep (@KAllsep): About that moment, at the beginning of quarter 3…When everybody raises up the ‘3’…take our listeners through that, what was that like…what was the crowd like and what that like for you guys in that moment? Mark Hilinski (Ryan’s Father): Well, if I can step back - the moment I’ll tell you about - but the lead up to the moment…this started with a young lady who talked to someone in the stands and it was sort of a grassroots, “Hey, I think this would be a neat way to honor Tyler, Ryan’s brother, and certainly Hilinski’s Hope (https://hilinskishope.org/).” But the feeling was “These are people taking care of themselves.” (car alarm) and this is as much for each other as it is for us (the Hilinski family). And so, we were super proud of that and…to be there and actually experience it was unbelievable and here’s why. It was so quiet. You think about, you come out at halftime, we get into the kick-off…we get the ball and the two things that stick out in my mind were: One - How quiet it was before everyone put their hand up. The second thing was – and I hope your listeners can appreciate this – because of where we sit (section 21 – in Williams-Brice parents section and on the “Visitors” side of the stadium behind the opponents’ bench) we are right behind Alabama’s bench and the first hand that went up was (Alabama’s Head Coach) Nick Saban’s from our view. So, when you see the visiting team’s players and coaching staff supportive…it sort of…it changes your mindset a little bit. I mean we are there to win the football game, don’t get me wrong…but to see those guys take that minute…and get bigger than football for a minute and know that they are loving on all of these student-athletes and the people that came…I don’t know if you can have a bigger hug than what we felt that day…and its terribly emotional, we’re big crybabies too, but, you swell with a little bit of smile and hope because you feel like Tyler’s there in a way, you know? At least for that moment and we were touched beyond belief couldn’t be more grateful and I’ve said it every chance that I’ve gotten that might be one of the most special things we’ve seen in the last twenty months (since Tyler’s passing) and super proud to be part of it. Kym (Ryan’s mother): …It was very emotional. When you can’t hear a in the stadium of eighty-one thousand people for a few moment…it’s...that’s spectacular and wonderful, right?...I was really sad at first because my first thought went to Tyler and missing him and his jersey number was ‘3’ and then those sad thoughts went to…I think I was proud and I was so appreciative and grateful for so many coming together to raise awareness and end the stigma (of suicide and seeking help for mental health) and when the Alabama fans joined in…when Coach Saban was there holding up his three fingers and his players and his staff…I looked around and I just saw a sea of three fingers being raised to the sky…it is hard to describe…and then when I heard from people who weren’t in the stadium but they were at home watching…or younger, youth football players who stopped in the beginning of the third quarter and raised three fingers too…it’s nothing short of…I don’t know if “miracle” is the right word but I have to say if so many people are coming together to help us raise awareness I really think we are going to beat down that stigma and so many people are going to speak up about how they are feeling emotionally and we can work together, united, to take care of everybody’s mental wellness.
  2. A first-time starter at quarterback. A driving rainstorm. A lightning delay. Too many momentum swings to count. A 57-yard field goal that gave Missouri the lead with 1:18 left. And a game-winning 33-yard field goal from Parker White with two seconds left that gave South Carolina the win. Eventually, the Gamecocks topped the Tigers 37-35 in a wet and wild game at Williams-Brice Stadium, where 73,393 showed up for the start of the game but only a few thousand remained by the time it ended five hours and 13 minutes after kickoff. After Tucker McCann hit a 57-yard field goal to put Missouri ahead, senior South Carolina quarterback Michael Scarnecchia led a 53-yard drive in 1:16 to set up White’s decisive field goal. McCann’s field goal was the second-longest in Missouri history. White’s was the biggest of his career and may have saved the Gamecocks season from spiraling into disappointment.
  3. Unfortunately I have stopping sending nudes. Only do polaroids nowadays.
  4. The application that creates the bets here does not allow for users to bet on either team of a matchup. The Betting shop would have to create a bet for each team in order to give the bettors that option (doubling their workload). For that reason, we have chosen to stick with Spread Bets for this site based on bettor's request for a match. For example, if a bettor requests the Alabama at UofSC game. The House would then create the bet based on the spread (in that case it would look something like Alabama (-28) at UofSC. If the requestor requests that the bet be UofSC vs Alabama, the created spread bet would look something like UofSC (+28) vs Alabama. Because it is a spread bet, the payout amount I usually create for it is almost always a three to one payout (more like 7.2 OR 7 dollars won for every 2 dollars bet). Hope this helps!
  5. Anyone looking to sell their tickets for the Alabama game this week?
