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”.

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.)
Let’s watch South Carolina - Alabama 2010!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Who threw for 201 yards and 3 TDs on 17/20 passing in leading the Cocks to their biggest win ever? That’s right:
