Get Pumped, Gamecock Fans

Kickoff of the University of South Carolina’s 2013 football season is less than ten days away, and while Gamecock head coach Steve Spurrier is doing his best to downplay expectations … it isn’t really working.

After back-to-back 11-win seasons and Top Ten finishes (both firsts for this historically mediocre program), USC enters 2013 with its highest ever preseason ranking (No. 6, according to the Associated Press) – and arguably the greatest player to ever don the garnet and black, Heisman Trophy candidate Jadeveon Clowney.

Assuming you’re not pumped already, check out this amazing video from Justin King …

Awesome!

Unlike many of King’s earlier videos, this clip makes extensive use of still shots … which the producer creatively moves against backgrounds and adorns with special effects. The coolest part of the video (in our opinion)? The treatment King gives Clowney’s sensational hit against Michigan running back Vincent Smith in the 2013 Outback Bowl.

USC opens its 2013 campaign next Thursday at home against the University of North Carolina. Kickoff is set for 6:00 p.m. EDT, with ESPN televising the game nationally.

It’s going to be a long wait… once Spurrier retires and they don’t bring in another has-been big name coach that players will want to say they played for, it’ll be back to 7-5, 6-6, 5-7 seasons and perpetual 3rd in the SEC East rankings.

When USC’s “has been” coach (finished in the top ten two years straight, currently ranked 6th and has romped tater tech four years straight) retires, I’m sure the university will struggle finding another coach. After all, with an athletic department bringing in 30 million more a year than Clemson and a place in the country’s premier conference, they can only hope to land a position coach that was selling houses a couple years before. We can only dream.

Looking forward to another ass whipping at Willy-B? Maybe after Spurrier leaves Clem will be one of the games we will keep winning. Gosh, I hope so. Scared.

You are mistaken. I am not a Clemson fan, in fact they beat my team in the bowl last season. I am an LSU man. Gradauated from there and I played football there. It a fact. Hate all the stupid pre-season hype and think there should be NO RANKINGS until the first week of October. By then all the truly overranked teams have either been beat or struggled against so-called ‘lesser’ opponents.
I bought four SC season tickets for about 15 years. How many did/do you buy? Just had enough of amateur hour and dropped ’em.
Win a championship. Any championship. Which would be SC’s first since 1969. Then we’ll talk.

I began as a freshman at USC during the Jim Carlen era. I had just graduated from a school that had won its third straight AAAA Football Championship during my sophomore year there and lost in the title game when I was a senior (I didn’t play). I grew up a Gamecock fan, but it was hard to get into the games given our mediocrity at the time. Thank goodness for George Rogers.
The local paper ran comparisons of how the Gamecocks and Tigers have fared against ranked opponents recently. Funny how our newfound success causes us to forget the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s (with the exception of Black Magic).
But hey, it’s a good time to be a Gamecock! Will it last? Who knows. We’re certainly in the right conference to sustain being part of the national conversation.
Just remember that these are 19, 20, and 21 year old boys. Applaud their successes. But you’re a fool if you let the actions of these youngsters ruin your weekend.

Justin King could do a video about Spurrier taking a dump and make it seem inspirational.
FLOATING TEXT
“There has been football … and coaches taking dumps … at USC for 100+ years.”
Lattimore quote — “I always say, constipation introduces a man to his toilet seat …”
FLOATING TEXT
“But what if all those years have been preparation
“FOR … WHAT … COMES ,., NEXT …”
etc.

It writes itself.
I am not a Clemson fan slamming here. Hardly. The guy just has a gift. I swear he could pull it off.
Loved the video.
