The Best of Mike Davis' 2013 media availability

Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

South Carolina's sophomore running back had a great season on the field but arguably had an even better one just slightly off of it.

With every graduating class of Gamecock football players, we wonder which members of the roster will step up and replace the outgoing players' production on the football field. We also wonder which players will be responsible for entertaining us in the coming year as we sift through hours and hours of post-practice and post-game interviews. With Jadeveon Clowney, Kelcy Quarles, and Victor Hampton all likely headed to the NFL, there's little question that Mike Davis will be our go-to source for unexpected hilarity in 2014. Let's take a look at his résumé.

The Robot

Background humor has been a tried-and-true staple of Hollywood comedies for decades. It's especially effective when the person in the foreground has absolutely no idea what's going on behind him, as was the case when Mike Davis did the robot in the background of Jimmy Legree's post-practice interview in Orlando.

Ahhhh Outtahyea

There's no great way to end any forced interaction between teenagers and adults and, post-practice interviews are no exception. Or, at least, we thought they weren't until Mike broke out this gem in October.

The Tale of the Tape

Connor Shaw had just led South Carolina back from a 17-point fourth quarter deficit to lead the Gamecocks to a thrilling double-overtime victory over MIssouri, all the while suffering from a pair of sprained knee ligaments that were expected to have kept him out of action of several weeks. The post-game interview was his opportunity to heroically field softball questions from the assembled media masses and bask in the glory of his accomplishment.

Instead, it's impossible to pay any attention to what Connor is saying because Mike Davis spends the entire interview grunting and groaning into the microphone as he struggles to liberate his wrists from athletic tape. The magic starts at the 1:15 mark.

What was your favorite Mike Davis moment of 2013? Is there anything that we missed?
