SOUTH CAROLINA FANBOYS RAGE AGAINST FITS’ FOUNDING EDITOR …

If you don’t follow our founding editor Will Folks on Twitter, you really should … like, now.

There’s never a dull moment … especially this week, as he appears to have enraged the entirety of “Gamecock Nation,” a.k.a. the loyal fans of the University of South Carolina football program. What did “Sic Willie” do? Well, he had the audacity to suggest that some of the unchecked enthusiasm over new head coach Will Muschamp (and his #BOOM and #SpursUp hashtags) might be a little bit premature.

How serious is it getting?

Pretty …

Nice!

Other tweets accused Sic of being a fair weather Gamecock fan, a closet fan of Clemson University (“taters gonna tate”) or an eternal pessimist with an axe to grind against his alma mater.

Ouch. How quickly Gamecock fans forget this website’s epic trolling of Clemson football. Or its editor’s long-suffering allegiance to South Carolina.

Or the fact he just made the cutest Gamecock …

baby gamecock

Awwww …

Anyway, we stand by our contention that Muschamp’s hiring isn’t a panacea for a program in free fall … that it was in fact more about South Carolina not being the last team left without a head coach when the coaching carousel’s music stopped. This despite the Gamecocks having a huge head start thanks to the mid-October resignation of Steve Spurrier.

Obviously we hope to be proven wrong – as we were in 2009 when we called for Spurrier’s head after South Carolina lost to a basketball school in a bowl game named after a pizza delivery website. All Spurrier did in response to that criticism was to reel off the four most successful years in the history of the program …

But as T.P. Tidwell said in the movie Jerry Maguire, we’ve got a commitment to the truth … or at least a commitment to telling it as best we know how. Also, just as we have an obligation to be the most insufferable of South Carolina fanboys while sitting in the stands at Williams-Brice Stadium … we have an editorial obligation to comment candidly on the status of the program and hold those in charge of it accountable for their performance.

Most importantly, we have an obligation to taxpayers …

If a couple’s first baby ever knew how little information his parents had about him,
he’d demand to be kept in the hospital those first few aching months.

Watch out for babies with voracious appetites, because I recall that at the age of eight months I was eating solids – crayons, newspapers, shoes, and sawdust from my little horse doll. They used to feed me through a funnel. Like all babies, I was nothing but an alimentary canal with a mouth at one end – and no responsibility at the other.

I did help my Mom by washing my own diapers. She really did appreciate my efforts … “Thanks a pantload, Henry”

Shouldn’t you be attributing the alimentary canal crack to RWR, at least with a footnote? ;-)

Ronald Wilson Reagan, who famously (or not so famously, I guess) used that line as a description of government:

“If you will forgive me, you know someone has likened government to a baby. It is an alimentary canal with an appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.”

I give Will credit. He reminds me of an Ohio State or Boston Celtic or Green Bay Packer fan.Always staying loyal even in difficult times.

Unlike these Clemson ‘bandwagoners’ that crawl out of the closet once a decade.

Being a fan brings out the dumbest in most people. Every bad decision your school makes gets excused or painted in the rosiest light possible, with overwhelming optimism. Meanwhile, any successes by rival schools are thoroughly marginalized and made out to be temporary. I’m a USC alum and diehard supporter, but that doesn’t change the fact that Muschamp was a bad hire. Nor does it change the fact that Clemson may very well turn out to be a legit Nat’l Champion. Muschamp MAY turn out to be a good hire and Clemson MAY turn out to be a fraud, but declaring either one of those with certitude is nothing but wishful thinking replacing rational thinking.

Mrs. Sic came downstairs with a basket full of dirty laundry and asked Will, “Can you watch the baby while I put it in the washing machine?”

“Watch it! Hell yes! I want to film it!” he replied.

Yeah I like the fact that a head coach quit because he couldn’t handle losing so as a replacement they hired a coach that was just fired for losing.

What they are talking about in Alabama –” Who lasts longer, Kirby Smart at Georgia or Will Muschamp at South Carolina?” (By Kevin Scarbinsky )
——————————————-
Two branches of the Nick Saban coaching tree have branched out, one of them for the first time, the other for his second shot as a head coach.

Kirby Smart will be the rookie boss at Georgia, once he’s finished helping Alabama try to win another national title, while Will Muschamp gets to show South Carolina how much he learned at Florida.

Which one of them is more likely to still be in that job five years from now?

Both of them are proven recruiters, which is Job One in college football these days for a head coach. Two examples: Smart was able to keep highly touted high school quarterback Jacob Eason committed to Georgia. Muschamp just signed highly touted junior college cornerback Jamarcus King.

But becoming a successful SEC head coach involves more than recruiting. It also includes hiring the right coaching staff and support personnel and managing them properly. There’s also game-planning and game-day decision-making and so many other details to handle.

Muschamp had one big year at Florida, going 11-2 in 2012, but he couldn’t keep the Gators at that level. He was fired two years later, then spent this season working for Gus Malzahn at Auburn.

Smart has been a vital part of the most consistently successful program in the country in the last decade, but the buck didn’t stop at his desk. It does now.

Can Smart take Georgia from winning games to winning championships? If 9-10 victories a year weren’t enough for Mark Richt to keep his job, what will be required of Smart to stick around? Can Muschamp get South Carolina to the SEC Championship Game when Steve Spurrier did it only once? Can Coach Boom take the state back from Dabo Swinney and Clemson?

Can Smart and Muschamp, along with Florida’s Jim McElwain, make the SEC East something other than the West’s weaker little brother?

The smart money would be on Smart to have more long-term success, given Georgia’s powerful recruiting base in its home state, but there’s no way to know for sure what any young head coach’s future holds.

I thought Muschamp would get it done at Florida.

Don’t worry Fits….I’ve been watching the FGF boards for weeks and coot fans have been some of the harshest critics (rightly so) of everything from Spurrier leaving the football program a dumpster fire to the clusterphuck that was the coaching hire process to all the de-commits to everything inbetween.

They have been remorseless in their savage assaults on Tanner and Co. and lobbied very hard against BOOM. Now, slowly the wheels are turning in support of him as they come to grips with the train wreck their future has become.

BTW..Clemson is playing in the college playoff everyone as the number one team in the country….check your local listings.
