YOU CAN ALSO JUST PUT YOUR HEADS DOWN ON YOUR DESKS AND SLEEP IF YOU WANT, I DON’T CARE

Hello! It’s Friday afternoon, so I’m sure you’re all working hard at your jobs and/or work release programs. With that in mind [wheels in audiovisual cart] let’s knock that off and watch some football!

I know what you’re thinking, “shit, I saw who’s posting this, he loves inundating us with shit football, he’s gonna dig out a UConn-Kent State game or something”.

C’mon. Don’t be ridiculous.

I checked, and the video of the last time Connecticut and Kent State played (in 2003) isn’t available online. Besides, in order to keep my Football Blogger License, I have to occasionally pretend I like football. (I root for a team that went 4-8 in the American Conference each of the last two years. I grew up in Cleveland. I do not actually like football.)

ANYWAYS.

Let’s watch South Carolina - Alabama 2010!

Some notes:

  1. This was Steve Spurrier’s sixth season in Columbia, and one of the biggest wins of his time there. The Gamecocks had never knocked off a #1 team, and this win would help propel them to their first (and to date, only) SEC East division title.
  2. This Alabama team featured the incredible backfield duo of reigning Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram and future Indianapolis Colt Trent Richardson. South Carolina’s defense held them to a combined 64 yards on the day.
  3. Alabama was held to 21 points, which is a normal score. They achieved it by: FG, TD (missed extra point), Safety, FG, TD. I’ve been kicked off of blackjack tables for assing my way to 21 like that before.
  4. Steve Spurrier “gave (himself) a game ball” for the win, which moved him into second place all-time on the SEC wins list, with 107, behind only Bear Bryant.
  5. Who threw for 201 yards and 3 TDs on 17/20 passing in leading the Cocks to their biggest win ever? That’s right:

Enjoy!
