Kratch: USC shows tenacity, avoids disaster | The Daily Gamecock

Surely, this was the death knell. The Chicken Curse had finally picked itself up and dusted itself off after being bludgeoned in the head by Whit Merrifield's aluminum bat in Omaha, Neb., back in the summer and made its way back cross-country, just in time to thwart the Gamecocks as they stood on the threshold of history.

My only qualm with this article? There is no chicken curse.

Security harmed students in defense of field | The Daily Gamecock
This confirms what we all already knew.

From my front row vantage point I witnessed a number of shocking events. The first student I saw successfully make it onto the field was seen just seconds later with blood pouring from his nose and mouth being escorted away by an officer. Another young man jumped the fence right in front me, and when an event staff member tried to simply push him back off the field, a police officer grabbed at him, trying to pull him back onto the field. Many of the officers armed themselves with Tasers and pointed them toward the crowd, and I can't even begin to mention the amount of students I watched get punched at and thrown violently to the ground.

OL Kevin Young knows this feeling all too well. All so we won't pay a $25,000 fine? Let's put that number into perspective.

If you consider the fact that it costs one out-of-state, non-scholarship student roughly $160,000 to attend Carolina for four years, I'm pretty sure the school could have handled the minor setback.

Let's forget for a second that tuition doesn't feed into the athletic department. Seems like this no rushing the field policy is counter-productive to its goals.

"I think it was just meant to be," Spurrier said. "Fate was on our side for us to beat the No. 1 in all three major sports in 2010." "This win couldn't have come at a better time," Garcia added. "We had a great game plan, and we executed it the best we've executed any game plan this year. Actually, since I've been here, I can't recall the way the offense played like this." Maybe fate had something to do with it.

Sunday Night Research Project: What 93 Yards vs. Bama Means for Lattimore | Spur of the Moment

Let me phrase that again: Lattimore's day was the best individual performance against Alabama since Nov. 24, 2007.


Reports out of Kentucky today said that Wildcats running back Derrick Locke -- a very, very important piece of that UK offense -- might miss Saturday's game against South Carolina. Locke has shoulder stingers (in both shoulders) and a bruised elbow. Even if he goes, he might not be 100 percent. It would be a huge blow for the Cats.

Good news all round for the Gamecocks.
