Is it ridiculous that the University of South Carolina fields an equestrian team? Probably …

But we’ve made our position on Title IX waste at government-funded institutions of higher learning pretty clear in previous posts (here and here), so we’ll leave that alone for now …

Love ’em or hate ’em (or never heard of ’em), the Gamecock equestrian team is best in the country … well, out of the eighteen Division I-A programs that currently field equestrian teams.

In fact the Gamecocks have held the No. 1 spot for ten straight weeks as they seek the school’s third national championship.

One team that did get the best of them? Georgia … which emerged victorious from a tiebreaker (don’t ask us how equestrian matches are scored) in Blythewood, S.C. earlier this year. The Gamecocks get their shot at revenge this weekend when they travel to Bishop, Georgia for a rematch.

We wish them luck … for the obvious reason that there are several hotties on the squad, and our founding editor is all about getting in good with the hotties (so selfless, we know).
