Furman Prepares To Face AP 13th-Ranked South Carolina On Saturday | Furman
Make no mistake, this is a ravenge game. To wit:

The clash will mark the first meeting between the Paladins and Gamecocks since Oct. 16, 1982, when Furman under head coach Dick Sheridan stunned USC, 28-23, on the strength of two touchdown passes by quarterback David Charpia and a blocked punt recovery in the end zone by Ernest Gibson, who later spent six years in the NFL.


Furman is South Carolina's oldest football foe, having whipped USC, 44-0, on Dec. 24, 1892, in Charleston in the Gamecocks' first collegiate football game.

How great is this exchange?

After exchanging greetings with pitchers John Taylor and Jose Mata, Obama started to walk away when Taylor shouted out: "Mr. President, what do you think about Manny (Ramirez) going to the White Sox?"

Obama, a former U.S. senator from Illinois, is a huge fan of sports teams from his hometown of Chicago.

The president stopped, shook his head and delivered his verdict on last month's trade of the slugger from the Los Angeles Dodgers to his beloved Chicago White Sox. "It's too late to help us," the president said. "Maybe we should pick up one of you guys."
