Gamecocks Play Tonight!

Gamecock Football 2009 Starts Today
Wait Til Next Year is Here!

South Carolina Gamecock football starts tonight at 7:00 p.m in Raleigh against NC State. The game will be nationally televised on ESPN with NC State a slight favorite. Steve Spurrier, who has coached a national championship team, won seven Southeastern Conference titles, and won nearly three-fourths of the college games in which he has coached, begins his fifth season as head coach at the University of South Carolina.

I saw an article on the Internet yesterday about the "Top 10 College Football Entrances" in college football. The State of South Carolina really has bragging rights for this list. Out of 119 college Division 1 football teams, South Carolina has 2 in the top ten on this list!  South Carolina is number 4 and Clemson is number 2.

 South Carolina has been entering their football games to "Also Sprach Zarathustra, Opus 30" since 1983. Former Coach Joe Morrison started this tradition. The music is best recognized as the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey, but former USC QB Tommy Suggs says the idea actually came from an Elvis concert.
