Most Memorable Gamecocks Football Plays of 2010: Number Five, Antonio Allen Puts the Nail in the Coffin of Kyle Parker's Career

With summer fast approaching, we'll be talking about football here at Garnet and Black Attack more and more in the coming weeks. With that in mind, I'd like to whet your appetite with a series of Youtube videos of some of the more memorable moments of last year's football season. We're going to start off with what I thought was the most memorable play of the Clemson game, Antonio Allen's pick-six.

Why was this play so great? Well, it wasn't exactly the most impressive play of the year; Kyle Parker kind of made it easy for us, didn't he? That said, this play cemented a blowout win over our most hated rival and rang the death knell for the football career of its overhyped QB. There's something to be said for plays like that; they find their way into the lore that surrounds rivalry series. What made it particularly enjoyable was the sense it gave me that the tables were turning in this rivalry; we've seen Carolina make blundering plays like this against Clemson many times, and it was nice to be on the other end, for a change.

So sound off, Carolina fans: how memorable do you think this play was?
