“Four Ever To Thee”

GAMECOCKS OUTLAST CLEMSON FOR FOURTH STRAIGHT RIVALRY WIN

Thanks to a clutch performance from backup quarterback Dylan Thompson – and four-and-a-half sacks from standout defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney – the University of South Carolina football team took its fourth game in a row over arch rival Clemson.  In the process the No. 12 Gamecocks made Steve Spurrier the winningest coach in school history – with 65 career victories over his eight years in Columbia, S.C. (including a remarkable 30 wins in his last three seasons).

“We were very fortunate … again,” Spurrier said after the game.  “Seems like when we play Clemson they don’t play very well, and we played well enough to make a few more plays than they did.”

South Carolina’s 27-17 win was part of a banner day for the powerful Southeastern Conference – which went 4-0 against the Atlantic Coast Conference on “Rivalry Saturday.”  In addition to the Gamecocks’ win, No. 4 Florida defeated No. 10 Florida State 37-26 while No. 3 Georgia demolished unranked Georgia Tech 42-10.  And in a battle of conference bottom feeders, Vanderbilt pummeled Wake Forest 55-21.

Can anybody say “Anybody Can Compete?”

The Gamecocks (10-2, 6-2 SEC) hadn’t pulled a “four-peat” over the Tigers (10-2, 7-1 ACC) in more than half a century – dating all the way back to 1951-54.  In fact prior to its current streak, USC hadn’t beaten Clemson in consecutive games since 1970 – when both teams competed in the ACC.

USC’s win also gives them double-digit victories in back-to-back years for the first time ever – truly uncharted territory for a program that literally defined mediocrity up until about three seasons ago.

Dylan Thompson looks for room to run against Clemson.

South Carolina won for the third time in a row this year without star running back Marcus Lattimore – who is out until 2014 after suffering a serious knee injury against Tennessee last month.  The Gamecocks also won without the services of starting quarterback Connor Shaw, who re-injured his foot in last week’s win over Wofford.

How’d the Gamecocks manage that?  By shutting down a Tiger offense that had amassed an astounding 205 points and 2,442 yards in its last four games – an offense which came out of the gates looking like it was going to put up similar numbers against one of the top defensive units in the nation.

No. 11 Clemson racked up 163 yards and 14 points during the first quarter – and looked as though it was well on its way to sprinting past South Carolina.  But the Gamecock defense collectively stiffened, surrendering only 3 points and 185 yards during the game’s final three quarters.

In fact defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward’s unit held Tiger quarterback Tajh Boyd under 200 yards passing for only the third time in his career – and limited superstar wide receiver Sammy Watkins to just four catches for 37 yards.  Boyd – whose Heisman Trophy stock was soaring after his 466-yard, 8-touchdown performance against N.C. State – was held to 183 yards passing with only one touchdown and two interceptions.

“I’m really, really proud of our defense,” Spurrier said.  “That’s one of the best offenses in the country and we held them down pretty well.”

Of course Boyd, Watkins and Co. were on the field for less than seven minutes in the second half – as the Gamecocks were able to consistently maintain possession of the football thanks to a workmanlike performance from Thompson and several clutch conversions on long third down plays.

The redshirt sophomore from Boiling Springs, S.C. completed 23 of 41 passes for 310 yards and three touchdowns in his second career start – looking much sharper than he did during his last extended action (in last month’s road loss to No. 4 Florida).  Thompson’s favorite target?  Sophomore Bruce Ellington, who caught seven passes for 72 yards and a pair of touchdowns.  Junior wideout Ace Sanders caught six passes for a career-high 119 yards and a touchdown.

Jadeveon Clowney sets USC’s season record for sacks.

Thompson also showed surprising speed and mobility – including a 20-yard scamper on a third-and-nineteen play late in the fourth quarter that set up his game-clinching touchdown pass to Ellington.

“We couldn’t disrupt him,” Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said of Thompson.  “He threw the ball incredibly well.  He was the difference in the game.”

South Carolina was able to maintain possession by converting on third down plays.  USC converted 11 of 21 third downs against the Tigers – better than 50 percent.  Entering the game, Clemson’s defense was limiting opponents to a 33 percent third-down conversion rate.

As a result, USC enjoyed a commanding 2-to-1 time of possession advantage in the game – although Spurrier’s squad did its best to keep the Tigers in the game by committing 11 penalties for a total of 110 yards.

“We made a lot of mistakes,” he said.

Fortunately a dominating performance by Clowney and the rest of the Gamecock defense bailed them out.  In addition to his 4.5 sacks (giving him a school record 13 on the year), Clowney also forced one of Boyd’s two interceptions with a monster pass rush right up the gut of the Clemson defense.

“We couldn’t get the ball in the third period,” said Swinney. “We just couldn’t stop them on third down. The third quarter was huge. We had too many penalties, too many turnovers and South Carolina did a great job of controlling the ball.”

After winning his first game against USC in 2008, Swinney has now lost four in a row.

“I just want to apologize to our fan base, to our seniors, to everyone,” he said.  “I really appreciate the environment that these fans have created these past few seasons. This loss really hurts.”

Did you ever notice how after the first one or two games beating up on some unknown school Clemson fans think they should be awarded the national championship by acclamation? Then, they start beating up on Wake Forest, Duke, Virginia, and these places that only play football so they can field a basketball team under the NCAA rules and they say again they should be given the National Championship? Then, they play a REAL football program, such as the SEC programs, and they get their asses kicked all over the field. Happens year after year. Someday those hayseeds that live up there in the woods will give it up and admit that they are inferior to the SEC, that their program is no better than a Pop Warner squad, and that a recruit looking at schools needs to consider that there is no future up there. Despite all this, some jackleg named Dabo tries to find some excuse for being butt kicked by the SEC or the Big East (as in West Virginia) other than that the ACC is athletically challenged, that real football players don’t commit to a place like Clemson when they can shine in a real league such as the SEC or Big 10 or Pac10, and that second tier mentality translates into second tier coaches and staff who they have to pay ridiculous salaries to attract. No other reason they would go out in the woods of NW South Carolina except for money. Face it Clemson, and I can say this because I didn’t go to Clemson or USC, but you just SUCK. If West Virginia didn’t prove it to you, the butt-kicking administered by Spurrier and crew (without Lattimore and using their BACKUP QB) for three years now should show you. There is no excuse. Get over it. Don’t even try to pretend that you are BCS bowl worthy. The entire ACC, including Maryland and Half Ass U, are a bunch of wannabees. BCS alternatives or reorganization of college sports? How about disbanding these second tier programs such as Clemson and putting the money towards education. Admittedly, Clemson does do that fairly well.

Compliments of ESPN
What did we learn in the ACC in Week 13? Glad you asked.
SEC > ACC. And it is not even close. It was a disastrous weekend for the ACC in its head-to-head matchups against the top conference in all the land, going 0-4 on a pitiful Saturday. The average score in those four ACC-SEC matchups was not pretty: SEC 40-19. And it was the first time since 2009 that Clemson, Florida State and Georgia Tech all lost their in-state rivalry games.
Dabo Swinney and Clemson were manhandled on their home turf by SEC foe South Carolina.
You can call us USC.
You can call us Carolina.

USC deserves credit for the win, and that is all. They seemed to go backwards as often as they went forward, and the game was 20-17 in the fourth quarter. The above drivel from ESPN about “manhandling” may apply to Clowney, as he clearly came to play, but ESPN has let its financial interests cloud its reporting. I have to say also that the commentating last night did sound like an SEC home network, with Millen making shit up as he went along. But Clemson had its chance and simply did not succeed.

Hell Pop Warner himself would be upset at how his little league teams looked today.

Man was a game! Looks to me like it took The Head Ball Coach about 20 minutes to prove that even while playing a second string (although extremely talented) quarterback that USC “…ain’t Clemson…” and as we’ve noted in the past, the SEC ain’t the Amateur Coaches Conference, poor lil’Dabo’a Weenie….

Taj won’t be going to New York.
Clowney sacked Taj’s ass in every quarter except the 2nd so he sacked him twice in the fourth.
Our second string QB threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 73 more yards.
An SEC team will most likely be playing for the National Championship (again) .
Dabo and company claim they beat themselves (again) proving that Dabo’s a Weenie. He got beat by a better team playing their second string quarterback.
You are right about one thing, it took the HBC 20 minutes and 2 seconds to prove that the Amateur Coach’s Conference ain’t the SEC. USC had the ball the other 39 minutes and 58 seconds.

Was Watkins even in the game? It was easy to tell that Boyd was there, they showed him picking grass out of his face mask after Clowney climbed off him. Who was that little squirt on the sidelines in the Clempson sweatshirt, looked like he might be coaching JV ball at some local high school. It’s amazing what happens when a bunch of overrated ACCers meet a real defense.

The bitter kitties have already started spinning it. Remember when the line (the coach, the team, AND the fans… after ANY loss) used to be, “WE BEAT OURSELVES” because they were just not willing to admit they GOT BEAT?

Dalton Freeman had it going on in the postgame interview. It was something along the lines of “We didn’t get beat, we just didn’t play our kind of football.”

Uh huh. What kind of football is THAT, Dalton? Winning football?

Most of SC third down conversions were on penalties. A pass tipped up and when everyone went for it the referee calls a pass interference? OK build your statue to Spurrier. Maybe SC would have won anyway, but this tarnished it to say the least. If I remember correctly, SC left the ACC because of the same type of referee calls in basketball games with NC. Even though I attend SC, this game will forever be remembered as one with exceptionally bad officiating.

Yep, you beat us 65 times but you lost today and you have been saying you beat us 65 times for the past four years. How’s that working out for you?

As for “we beat ourselves”, so if your competition didn’t show up you still would have lost? We can’t wait until next year so you can beat yourselves again.

SC owning Clemson is NORMAL. It’s how it shoudl be. Not surprised. SC is Men to Clemson’s Boys (See DJ Hit)….

Also: A lead for FITS: Since David Reaves (of questionable ethics) left USC, the Gamecocks are 4-0 vs Clemson.

Reaves (family friend of Brad Scott) was with USC for the Lou Holtz era and the first 4 years of Spurrier, when Spurrier was 1-3 vs Clemson. SC played inexplicably poorly to Clemson those years, even when winning…

Reaves was of very low moral character, and I heard an interview w/ one of Brad Scott’s sons (before a SC-CU game game) where he said a member of the USC staff had talked the USC gameplan with him. Reaves and the Scott boys all went to HS together (at SVHS) and are as THICK as Theives….

I think Clemson’s sucess under Bowden had a lot to do w/ Reaves feeding them our playbook and gameplan.

Remember: Brad Scott was reported to the NCAA for trying to bribe a USC GA (Leuers?) under Holtz. The GA was fired, eventully hired by Buddy Pough at SC St.

Spurrier is a dream come true for the Cocks who show every indication of making a run for the national title in the future.

The depth of talent (current recruits included) bodes well for the Gamecocks.

Muted ESPN and listened to Todd Ellis and he certainly laid it on heavy. That’s big fun there.

Will I go, nope, do I know where Clemson will go, nope and really don’t care. I know this comes to many here as a shock, because they only know that if you’re not a Gamehen fan, your a Tater.

Best quote on the game:

http://www.saturdaydownsouth.c…-in-60-seconds/

You have to tip your hat to Steve Spurrier. He beat Clemson with a backup quarterback, a backup running back and a point guard at wide receiver. Clemson just can’t beat South Carolina. The ACC is just stellar, right?

Compliments of ESPN

What did we learn in the ACC in Week 13? Glad you asked.

SEC > ACC. And it is not even close. It was a disastrous weekend for the ACC in its head-to-head matchups against the top conference in all the land, going 0-4 on a pitiful Saturday. The average score in those four ACC-SEC matchups was not pretty: SEC 40-19. And it was the first time since 2009 that Clemson, Florida State and Georgia Tech all lost their in-state rivalry games.

Dabo Swinney and Clemson were manhandled on their home turf by SEC foe South Carolina.

You can call us USC.
You can call us Carolina.
We are THE University of South Carolina Fighting Gamecocks … and we own your lousy ass Dat Boy!

Just mark down next year’s game in the win column for Carolina. Nikki should stay home for that one…not welcome in WB.

Boyd had better hope he gets drafted this year, next year will be tougher, the players they lose to the draft and graduation, and possibly their offensive coach.

364 days of teeth knashing, lame excuses, impure thoughts.

The biggest Clemson worry is the opponent they face in the Chic Filet Bowl, if it either Texas A and M, Johnny Football puts up huge West Virginia like or LSU and Coach Myles gets to pin on the lockers that Clemson thinks it is the real Death Valley.

They could go into next season in such a spiral that a new AD may just ask for dabo to do the right thing and resign.

Clemsux would have lost to Vanderbilt, Arkansas, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, LSU, and of course USC if they played the teams SC played. Clemsux would have been 8 and 2 if they were lucky!

How about Clemson vs. Vandy in a bowl game with Vandy kicking their butt up and down the field?

And Vandy wins 35-7.

Or maybe Texas A&M.

Look out, bitter kitties!

Clemson is the better team and every one in this country know it. Coots had refs in they’re pocket and cheats.

Lame excuse from the bitter kitties. Yeah, we had to let them penalize us and more than Clemsux and nullify a touchdown so it would look legit. And the only thing everyone in the country knows is that we kicked their ass again!

Jim Sweet cannot be real, but he sounds a lot like the rest of these Clemson morons, and exactly like their radio broadcasters who cry like pussies in all games when the calls don’t go their way.
