IMAGES FROM THE “BORDER BATTLE”

|| By FITSNEWS || For the past five years, it’s been our privilege to feature photography from veteran, award-winning photojournalist Travis Bell.

Not only does Bell (and his Sideline Carolina team) provide all of the amazing sports photography you see on FITS, but each year he travels to the S.C. State House to provide gorgeous images for our political coverage.  He’s just a tremendous asset … and his exemplary work makes our website a brighter, livelier place.

Bell and his team were on hand in Charlotte, N.C. this week for the University of South Carolina’s season-opening football game against the University of North Carolina.   And while the Gamecocks’ on-field performance left plenty to be desired (read our recap here), Bell was once again at the top of his game.

Enjoy …

Vast, Vast improvement from the FITSNews prose on the Gamecocks or any sports. The written report always has a way of making you look ignorant.

Truth is: all you really want is clicks off Gamecock football, even though you are one of the “enemies” the HBC singled out a couple months ago.

Oh, shut up! You’re not even a USC grad, yet anyone that doesn’t bow down and kiss Gamecock feet, is somehow an “enemy”. You’re talking about a spurrier who recruited scrub Connor Mitch to quarterback this team.

Lulz…that was electrifying, huh?

Jesse Palmer did his best to talk it though, even when UNC was winning. Terrible coverage, even worse game.

Gonna be a long season for cock fans.

Two Tiger trolls on a Gamecock post? No, they wouldn’t be worried about the Gamecocks so much they have to troll would they? Showing your true colors there and its coward yellow, not orange. its okay after USC hands you your 4th (or maybe 5th) loss this year your long over rated season will be over. until then take your trolling asses back to taternet.
