The GABACast, episode 130: WE BELK’ed OURSELVES.

a disastrous week one loss to the tarheels, Hugh Freeze coached from a hospital bed, and Y’ALL REMEMBER WHEN WE WANTED WILLIE TAGGART?!

NCAA Football: South Carolina at North Carolina Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Listen, we all know that the first rule of Gamecock fandom is that you will experience soul crushing defeat that will leave you staring at yourself in the mirror wondering why in the world you do things like this to yourself. However, Saturday’s defeat at the hands of a resurrected (and questionably botox’ed) Mack Brown team may have been a new experience. Losing to a University of North Carolina Tarheels team that won a combined five games in the past two seasons with a freshman quarterback when you’re optimistic about a fourth year quarterback and a host of veteran talent might have thrown you for a loop.


This week, Sam and DC3 go old school, because Alex literally couldn’t even, but despite the fact that there were only two of the three amigos, the TAEKS were still flying like seagulls in a Walmart parking lot.

The guys break down the loss in Charlotte and wax poetic on what the rest of the season might hold. We bag on the coaching staff pretty heavily, wonder aloud what it’s going to look like with Ryan Hilinski taking over for an injured Jake Bentley, and try to decipher just where the Gamecocks are going to go from here. There are also winners and losers, including Tulsa’s terrible horrible no good very bad running game, the year of the freshman quarterback, Willie Taggart’s weird theory on hydration, and BAYLOR’S BACK BABY (living vicariously through Liberty). We also field your listener questions, threaten to boycott uniform reveals, and much much more!
