TEXAS A&M LAYS LONE STAR-SIZED BEATDOWN ON SOUTH CAROLINA
University of South Carolina head football coach Steve Spurrier made fun of Texas A&M’s schedule during the offseason … but the No. 20/21 Aggies had little trouble dispatching the No. 9 team in the nation on the road Thursday night.
In the season opener for both teams (and their first-ever meeting) head coach Kevin Sumlin‘s offense steamrolled a hapless South Carolina defense – which surrendered a school record 680 yards en route to a 52-28 blowout loss (the Gamecocks’ first defeat at home since losing to Auburn in 2011).
That’s right … 680 yards.
“That team is so much better than us, it wasn’t funny,” Spurrier said after the game.
That’s for sure …
Just like that … the nation’s longest home winning streak is over. And more importantly, the Gamecocks’ preseason SEC championship hopes appear to be nothing but pipe dreams.
And the inaugural college football playoffs? Which the Gamecocks seemed well-positioned for given their No. 4 national ranking at the end of 2013?
Yeah … somebody cue Jim Mora …
Clearly life after Jadeveon Clowney (the No. 1 pick in the 2014 draft) looks like it’s going to be pretty brutal for the Gamecock faithful.
Thursday night’s beat down marked the first time since the 2010 SEC championship game (against Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton and eventual national champion Auburn) that a South Carolina defense had given up more than 50 points in a game. Of course if Gamecock defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward‘s unit doesn’t make some major adjustments, expect more throttling ahead.
In his first collegiate start, Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hill picked the Gamecocks apart – completing 44 of 60 passes for a school-record 511 yards and three touchdowns. His favorite target? Senior wideout Malcome Kennedy – who hauled in 14 passes for 137 yards.
The son of former Chicago Cubs pitcher Ken Hill led the Aggies on a nine-play, 67-yard touchdown drive to open the first half … and kept pounding away drive after drive. Using an up-tempo, spread formation office the Aggies scored on eight of their twelve drives – and two of the four times they failed to score it was the clock, not the porous Gamecock defense, that stopped them.
Uh oh. Clemson’s mighty D gave up 350 yards rushing and 5 rushing td’s. Their season is just as over
holy sheeeeet…wait..ya can’t lick our cocks, right?
Eviscerated is putting it lightly.
Castrated is more appropriate. Joe Montana was a christian who did not have to advertise…
6 wins this season, if they’re lucky. Maybe Dabo has a chance after all…
18 home game win streak was not an NCAA best.
Current 18 game HOME winning streak. Reading comprehension > you.
Amazing how that changes when Will edits the article isn’t it, it originally said the NCAA’s longest home winning streak.
yeah, because it looks like you had no fucking clue what you were saying until you “claimed” it was edited Oh wait that’s all the time. no wonder your mom left you.
Boy getting your ass kicked sure makes a dirtpecker fan moody. I guess the next 8 days are shot all to hell now. Suck it up buckos, maybe you can beat powerhouse East Carolina University, afterall they only won 10 games last year to your 11.
not moody, just proving you are my bitch. it seems you talking shit and finding out your mommy was a whore makes you upset. got you again bitch.
680 fucking yards, that’s damn near a half mile.
or as wide as your moms asshole could stretch before she left you
You do realize that your posts just show people who come here how truly classless Dirtpecker fans really are, don’t you?
no they don’t, they remind everyone of who I am replying too and what class you have.
Yeah, with your classy responses, everyone having something to do with a dead woman and nothing to do with the topic at hand. I guess if you don’t have the mental capacity to discuss, you’re just left with insults.
the topic is your mom. stay on point my little bitch. you are trying to change it
Or how far the Aggies ran over the Dirtpecker defense.
not quite as funny is it? only you would think so. your moms ass was great. too bad its not here any more huh?
best active HOME winning streak.
First game played on the SEC network. Guess who lost.
What’s that I hear? “Wait ’til next year!!!”
ECU isn’t going to be a cakewalk next week either, especially seeing how well the defense played tonight.
I guess everyone was tired form doing your moms ass. That whore cost the team a win huh? But good job on all you accomplished on the computer about it. I dare to see how you don’t respond as you say you wont. You will of course because like I did to your mom’s bunghole, I own you!
Well I guess they should have spent more time on the practice field. Because they looked pitiful out there tonight.
52 fucking points, and they ran the clock out on the 1 yard line!!! 680 yards of offense, most ever given up in the Columbia industrial park!!!
and that means what that you did, or makes me feel bad in what way? I still got to make you my bitch again. watch out or your mom might have a re…. oh she cant can she?
Again, this time in English please.
52-28, that’s gotta sting.
you’ re my bitch. that stings
Originally, I chalked up the “worst SC defense EVAR” comments on Facebook as hyperbole, but then the stats rolled in confirming that this was the most yards ever given up by a Gamecock team. That ain’t good.
Adding insult to injury, I hear fans who showed up to the State House to disrupt the A & M rally were basically laughed at. Of course, that was hardly the first time people from out of state took over the capitol.
Yeah the classy Dirtpecker fans came up with the cheer, “Fuck the Aggies”.
squishy talks about others with class, because his mommy was too busy doing other things to teach him of class.
So if the Aggies score yet again, does a Clemson player now have to shoot himself in the head?
only if they fuck you mom in the ass to give her the big C. knew you couldn’t not reply. thanks again for proving you are my bitch
Your welcome, this is kind of a chicken vs. egg thing isn’t it? You can’t help but respond to one of my posts.
I only do to prove you actually are upset and must reply to mine. OWNED aren’t you? LOL
Please stay on topic, the topic of this discussion is “Gamecocks getting their ass kicked”.
funny you say ass and kicked so I am on topic. I kicked my cock right up your moms ass. face it. your mom was a whore, and you are a bitch. I have offered to talk to you face to face about it but you always punk out. wonder why she left you.
I follow your lead
The General Assembly was meeting in special session. They deserved a similar cheer.
And most of the Gamecock fans were back at the State House by the start of the 4th quarter. Weren’t many left in the stadium.
Absolutely LOVING this!!! My only regret is that I didn’t plonk down even more money than I did on the Aggies to win. I could have retired.
Insert obligatory “high five” comment here.
No argument from me, the Cocks were beaten up and down the field by AandM. Do you predict a Clemson win this year after five years of double digit losses to a team as bad as Carolina? Please tell me where the “big money” will be on that game this year. I’d like to plonk down money with you.
Hard to say. We’ve got our own problems to worry about and we’ll see what we’re working with come Saturday afternoon. I’m fairly concerned about Clemson’s offense and although our D is pretty good, Gurley ran over us like a Mack truck last year in Death Valley.
Now the dawgs have Keith Marshall back to assist with the running duties among an otherwise balanced offensive attack. Their defense is nothing to sneer at either and to top it off it’s their home opener/revenge game “twixt the hedges”. To be honest, I would not be the least bit surprised if Georgia easily covered the 7.5 points against Clemson…but one can still hope and dream for the upset.
I’m afeared GA has the rest of the whupass can left over from the game last night. Aggies took it by on the way home.
Look on the bright side, at least there’s a chance it won’t be 6 in a row.
Haha back at ya. Loved it!
Fair play to you.
That one was painful to watch – very painful. I feel bad for those boys playing their hearts out – hate it for them that they lost so bad in the first game of the season.
It’s just one loss – regroup – make some adjustments – and do better next game. The season is not over.
*TBG stares off into the distance*
*Thinks to himself…”Did TBG see that? Was it an SEC East Championship? A National Championship?
Don’t see nuffin, now… Meh.”
I’m aware of all of the silly rivalry between Carolina and Clemson but this is how I ride – if a South Carolina team is playing a team from another state, I pull for the South Carolina team.
TBG respects this and has truly tried the same…
But. Just. Can’t. Do. It.
I find it difficult to pull for a post Civil War southern school, but Clemson is ok in that category, I guess. No Confederate soldier alums, but what the heck, you progressive boys are rightly proud of not having such unpleasant baggage. Wasn’t Benedict founded around the same time?
Ever heard of Ben Tillman?
Did he go to Clemson?
No, he helped found the place (and Wofford as well) – ever heard of Tillman Hall? The iconic Clemson “photo shot” of the clock tower is Tillman Hall, named for the noted white supremacist, racist and lynch mob leader who also happened to be a former Democrat governor of our fair state. One of his notable quotes: “…”We have done our level best [to prevent blacks from voting] … we have scratched our heads to find out how we could eliminate the last one of them. We stuffed ballot boxes. We shot them. We are not ashamed of it….” then there’s this gem, “… [the black man] must remain subordinate or be exterminated…”.
I bet the girl (USC student) who was shot and paralyzed in 5 points last year would agree with him.
“(and Wofford as well)”
I think you mean Winthrop, don”t you?
Correct you are, Winthrop – Tillman Hall was built largely by convict labor
SCBlues, I pretty much have never agreed with anything you’ve ever posted… until now. I just don’t understand these “proud South Carolinians” who pull for out of state teams. I mean crap, we’re not even in the same conference, so why would this Gamecock not want the Tigers to win except for when we play them?… this crazy recruiting advantage argument is overhyped IMHO.
“SCBlues, I pretty much have never agreed with anything you’ve ever posted… until now. ”
Glad we found some common ground.
And just for the record – being the bleeding hear liberal that you know I am – when Clemson plays Carolina I usually find myself pulling for whoever is losing.
I always root for the underdog if nobody I care for is in the Super Bowl/World Series. It’s more interesting that way, anyways.
I still do not agree with anything she has said.
“I still do not agree with anything she has said”
Oh well – can’t please everyone – not that I try.
Jim Mora’s EPIC “Diddle Poo” rant…
Steve Spurrier’s halftime interview….
I wonder if this will be the year that Slurrier says fuck it, it’s just not worth it as he grabs another Natural Light and heads back out on the golf course. But then where will his two sons find work?
pimping out your mom. and by the way you said you wouldn’t ever reply to me but you keep doing it. I am just telling you every time you do you prove you are my bitch. Notice, I haven’t said a word about football, but still you keep replying
So is every one of your posts going to be an insult to my dead mother? I don’t really understand the connection to the Dirtpeckers getting their dicks knocked into the dirt by a freshman quarterback to my mother, but whatever, you’re just a typical dirtpecker fan and I shouldn’t expect anything better from you.
not a dirtpecker, just a guy that misses that sweet ass of your dead mother. you should thank her for not flushing that night. its how you were born.
Don’t forget to mention that you’re also a classy guy. I doubt if there’s a person here who doesn’t consider you the typical dirtpecker fan.
Weren’t you the one that said you were a dirtpecker pine bench rider back in the 80’s? Or was that just a lie.
If they have ever read your bullshit they are laughing that someone is owning you. aren’t you jv from d2? same same huh? but back to your mommy. where is she? oh that’s right
So you played for the Dirtpeckers, but aren’t a fan? Please explain that one. So are you lying about being someone you aren’t?
no, just have no clue who you call dirtpeckers. I’ve never seen a mascot with them. oh I get it the word pecker is in there. like what I gave your mom. my pecker. yes I guess I am one then. clever on your part. so all dirtpeckers must have also fucked your dead mom in the ass to years back huh?
I’m a Gamecock, but, we got stomped. I was impressed by the Aggies coach’s post game comments and the appearance of their players. No dread locks hanging out of helmets, etc. They seem to be a class act. Congrats!
Not going to like A&M as a permanent opponent. They’re kind of awesome.
You still looking for the easy road? Then, if you win, you brag about how tough your schedule was.
Your? I don’t play football, and I’m no cock lover either. Just pointing out that USC having to play Missouri and now A&M every year will be harder than Arkansas and SC State or whoever. Last year they didn’t play Bama, Auburn, LSU or A&M. Kind of takes the shine off their BEST SEASON EVER, huh?
The word “EVISCERATED” implies the presence of guts. I saw no evidence of any such on the field wearing a white helmet with a chicken on it.
Liz Gunn arrived outside Williams-Brice Stadium at 3:30 pm wearing a wide horizontal striped garnet, black and white sun dress. The sundress made going to the little girls room easier in addition to any horizontal activities. The garnet was a little off and could pass for maroon which in the end helped preserve her dignity.
Underneath she wore granny panty briefs to reduce wedging and needed adjustments. The briefs were orange with white tiger paws just to cover all the bases. Liz did a lot of walking, step climbing, standing and sitting. To make it more comfortable she put Band•aid Friction Blocker on her feet and inner thighs. This also made any horizontal activities much more comfortable. Liz was quoted saying “If the Cockaboose is a rock’n don’t come a knock’n.”
In my judgements Liz was “smokin hot”. The final score was 10, 10 on the “Hot – Crazy Matrix”.
A&M just scored again!
So did Georgia
Why was Texas A&M chosen as USC’s “rival?” That is embarrassing in itself. Why can’t USC have a real rival instead of a team from Texas they’ve never played before? It’s like the sad kid at the school dance who can’t get a date so he’s paired with the new girl from Texas. Except the new girl also kicked his ass and stole his lunch money.
Steve’s mouth was writing checks Thompson, Davis, Wilds, Carson, and Lorenzo Ward could not cash. That 3 story tall poster of Steve on the stadium is gauche. Let David Williams run the ball and put Dylan up as back up. Give the other QB’s the starts. Defense? Fuggataboutit. There is no defense this year. Seniority? Yea, right.
Yet another embarrassing scene: The Aggie players and fans singing their fight song in a nearly empty stadium. The field was their house. Pathetic.
FITS’ record in in-state predictions remains PEFECT…LMAO..I bet Vincent Sheheen and Felonious Punk are Crapping themselves this morning.
We got a couple GOOD articles about the loss. Spurrier SPECIFICALLY points the finger…and SC lost ugly to Ga. last year. How did the team respond?
There you go with that “we” shit again.
Fourth Quarter Time of Possession: Texas A&M 12:56 South Carolina 2:04
Ward should be fired!! He doesn’t know crap about defensive football strategy. He had his linebackers completely out of the game all night. Leaving his outnumbered 4 down lineman to be crushed. What’s worse??? He never changed out of the rotten defense the whole night. Even when Texas A&M running the same defense saw it wasn’t working for them either, and changed to the Nickel the rest of the game. Thus only giving USC 1 more touchdown the rest of the way. You think Ward would have noticed that A&M was out of this awful defensive setup, and he should change too??? Nope, because Ward is an idiot, who only got by last year because he had 2 of the best defensive lineman in the United States, both of which are going great this year in the NFL. They made this fool look good.
You neglected to claim it’s Nikki Haley’s fault
