Guys…knock it off. Look at the FSU/UF game. The SEC is tops. All of you who disagree are jealous and have too much time on your hands. The bottom line to SEC success….it is the coaching. I have noticed that when SEC teams play…especially out of conference, they play to win (take chances, trust their players to execute plays). SEC is > all the others. Bottom line. And they deserve to be. Those boys can play some football.
I did not bother to read the CBS story.
4-0 today , SEC wins !
I guess the #6 (? ) SEC team beat your #2 team without the 1st string QB and w/o Lattimore . Messy but a win.
UGA, Florida, Vanderbilt, and The University of South Carolina (1801) all beat the ACC opponents.
All you had before is all you have now, BS and a bunch of excuses.
And your cupcake team, Merry-Land is leaving.
Maybe next year.
I sometimes forget how young most of you are.
I travelled a great deal ,years ago ,and as I crossed the South Carolina State Line I would say this…
“First gallant South Carolina noble made the stand, then came Alabama to take her by the hand.
Next quickly Mississippi, Georgia and Florida , all hoist on high the Bonnie Blue Flag which bears a single star.”
This is why SC should be in the SEC.
I am surprised you who think you know something do not recognise the” USC 1801.”
As you drive past Maxey Gregg park toward the University you will see the USC sign and that is what it says.
Perhaps as you drive down Wade Hampton Blvd you might wonder who these guys were?
It has been more than 20 years since I was there .
Some here call USC 1801 , “JR”, and their team’s school was founded in 1889 .
I do not expect you will understand this , but a “Tarheel” should !
No need for the history lesson. I can spout history all day with you Harry.
I am sure your black players at Alabama really agree with you about the nobility of the South and the confederate cause. You should bring that up at the next pep rally.
I understand completely what 1801 is. I asked why you were putting it in your post. South Carolina does not have a linear history though as the school has closed and been reorganized several times so that date is somewhat meaningless. That school in 1801 is not the same school as the one that exists now. It is a major reason the school has lagged its agricultural brother for most of its history.
I also wanted to make sure you weren’t trying to indicate that somehow South Carolina was the first public school in the nation as it most certainly was not. UGA was chartered first, but did not operate until much later while the University of North Carolina holds the distinction of being the nations oldest public institution of higher education and has a completely linear history with only a 2 year break during Reconstruction.
Sometimes I forget how old you are. I do not expect you to understand this, but as a TAR HEEL I do.
There were 90,000 blacks in the Confederate army.
There were 200,000 in the Invader’s army and they were paid regularly.
I grew up in a small town where people could walk to the courthouse and look up their ancestor’s record where Black’s were proud that their ancestors defended the land they worked so hard on.
Some few in this country know our history.
Some of us do not like that helmet that says “irish” as 25% of the invaders’s army were irish fresh off the boat. Are there Any irish on that team ?
I think all of the top 5 SEC teams would beat ND.
Lest we forget .
WTF? Are you serious? I will discuss the civil war all day and it is obvious you have no earthly clue what you are talking about.
Jesus, I knew schools in Alabama were bad but this takes the cake. I am sure the slaves just loved working for their benevolent masters too. Just think Fletch 2 where Fletch inherits the plantation. Stupid.
I love it when stereotypes illustrate themselves though so keep talking.
What do you think of the backgrounds of McCarron or McElroy? Bet there might be a little Irish in there.
You are nuts.
I do not believe you.
Those you mention do not have “Irish” on their helmets. Context !
I get a laugh the few times I have watched a ND game that Blacks and Polish players have Irish on their helmets.
I have taught Black History , too bad you guys were not my students as you colander heads might have learned something.
I was a volunteer teacher in an adult correction facility teaching Black History to Blacks mostly.
I think you know nothing of football or history.
You are rather assuming as well in your misguided conclusions.
And your team stinks as does your conference.
Good luck in your bowl game. Oh, that’s right ,cheaters never prosper.
This is too much fun having lowered myself to your level, however , my team hopefully won’t lower themselves to the pitiful level of performance that your team enjoys.
Ahhh….an Alabama fan talking about cheating? BAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Tell us more about the purchasing of Albert Means from his high school coach since you are such a slavery expert. How bout the murder of the booster who did it? And that is just an example of where you got caught. How many thousands of cash payments have occurred and still do that never get caught?
But yeah Cheaters never prosper. Yet somehow your school claims 48,000 championships.
I know nothing. That is for sure alright.
You are right that Carolina is not anywhere in the same league of cheating as Alabama.
