In this B-B-B-BONUS episode of Half Cocked, the Garnet And Black Attack podcast...

I interviewed Landon Howell, director of strategy and content for a new sports social media app called Fancred. Landon explained what Fancred is all about and described the ways you can use to improve your experience as a producer and/or consumer of online sports content. Landon and I also talked about adjusting to cultures not as obsessed with college football after moving away from the South, why college sports elicit a more emotional connection from us than professional sports, and the strange history of interbreeding between the coaching staffs of South Carolina and Southern Miss (Landon's alma mater).

I've been using Fancred for about a month, and it's a fun and easy way to stay informed about the Gamecocks and any other college or professional team that you follow. I hope you guys decide to give it a try. Here's the iTunes App Store link to Fancred.
