So because I’m a big weinie, when faced with personal difficulties, I tend to hide, figuratively. Which also means bloggy block. However, I am trying to force myself out of this hole I’ve been cowering in and get back in the game.
So let’s talk about some football shall we? Honestly, as a Gamecock fan, this whole post could be dedicated to all kinds of wonderful topics, like: how Stephen Garcia has lost his mind, or how Steve Spurrier will definitely throw a clot this season, or my personal favorite, how the Gamecocks lost the stupidest game ever to a pretty mediocre Auburn.
But I choose to be positive and focus instead on a bright spot named Melvin Ingram. In case you’ve been under a rock this season, you’ve heard about the defensive player who it seems can do about anything. Special teams? Sure, he’s a hands guy. Sack the quarterback? No problem. Catch an interception and run all three hundred pounds of him into the end zone? Easy peasy. Point being, Ingram has been an enormous influence on the outcome of the games so GUESS WHAT? He’s injured and may not play this coming Saturday against Kentucky. At home. With a second string QB. Siiiiggghhhh.
To be succinct, the above section of the post really could have just gone like this: AAARRGGGHH &*^@#^#&*$&@!!!! and everyone in the country would know what I was talking about.
Lifting our eyes unto the hills, HELL-O, Clemson! Wow. Just wow. The Tigers have surprised pretty much everyone this season, including their own fan base. Which is great for them, and bad for the three ranked teams that they have rolled all over. I think Dabo went a little far with his comment that every ranked team they’ve beaten could be a national champion (Auburn?), but whatever. I cannot hardly deny that the Tigers have some serious momentum and are well on their way to a fantastic season.
The Tigers will host Boston College at home this weekend, and if the last few weeks are any indication, they should have no problems. Plus their home crowd is gonna be NUTS, which is always fun.
And back here in Chucktown, the good news is that The Citadel picked up their first conference win last week against Chattanooga. Hopefully they’ll be able to ride the wave of victory at home against Wofford this Saturday. This game is their Military Appreciation Day game, and with El Cid being a military college, they are sure to put on a good show for that at the very least.
Normally, I focus only on these three teams, but as a closet Tide fan I just have to say, HOLY.FREAKING.CRAP! Bama is ridiculous good this season. Personally, I think the Bama/LSU game is going to be EPIC and I cannot wait to see it. Rolllll Tide!
That’s all for now – I’ll be back with someone more entertaining soon. Thanks to all three of my readers for stopping by and always, have a happy and safe Gameday!
