Fresh off a 31-6 loss to Alabama last week, Florida Gator lineman Carl Johnson’s ‘these Crimson Tides are not gods‘ comment may have come off as comical.
(Fifth of Jack dumped in Bojangle’s gallon jug will do that)
But Johnson wasn’t proved wrong Saturday in Columbia.
My first job after graduating from the Univ. of Georgia was covering South Carolina football and basketball for WVOC-AM in Columbia, South Carolina.
From that experience I learned that no college football fanbase in history has supported a program more with less results to show for it.
Steve Spurrier as coach certainly complicates my emotions about the Gamecocks - as a UGA alum - but with the Georgia season officially rendered a stinkbomb, I can’t say I’ll be rooting against the closest thing college football has to the Chicago Cubs.
