Columbia: South Carolina should've picked a better capital city (not saying Georgia's decision was any better). Columbia is like one big parking lot that offers the visiting fan absolutely nothing. It's a shithole (think ninth level of hell) and, while I hate South Carolina fans, I feel bad for anyone who has to live there.
Yep, just another beautiful day in hell. (Artwork by GFS IV)
Stole Ric Flair's Intro Music: It makes sense on the one hand because obviously the Carolinas are Flair country. On the other hand, associating yourself with a 16-time World Champion doesn't make you a champion (more on this next). Now every time I see the greatest professional wrestler of all-time "walk that aisle" towards the ring I'm reminded of you jackasses.
Fans: I could write a whole separate post on this alone. I'm all for optimism and PMA but pre-season national champions every year? Really? Win the conference first then we'll talk about MNC's (which really are mythical in their case). For a team that has NEVER won anything, you would think they were damn USC by listening to the fanbase. Literally too, because they actually refer to themselves as USC when everybody knows the real USC is out on the west coast. They're not even "usc jr.," "SC," or "Carolina." They're just South Carolina as Dabo so eloquently put it and sometimes they get a little too big for their britches. Their fans ride the SEC's coattails better than anyone, especially when trying to hide the obvious inferiority complex in their own state. Don't believe me? Just visit FGF.
What a proud program- "Celebrating Mediocrity"
