If you want to see what big time college football atmosphere IS, watch tonight’s game between the capital city teams in the capital of South Carolina, Columbia. South Carolina will be good this year. N.C. State likely won’t.
I have two of my other business partners who are South Carolina graduates, so I hear way too much about the ‘Cocks. I have, also attended several games at Williams-Brice Stadium. I was there when the team was 0 for 11 and still 80,000 fans showed up to watch the beloved home team. I saw ECU’s Scott Harley run for about 4oo+ yards in a downpour, and about 75,000 stayed for the entire game. I hit the car and listened on the A.M.
Back to the game…..watch South Carolina’s linebackers-big, strong and very fast. I hear if the immobile Daniel Evans was back there, he would get beat to death. that’s one reason why he is sitting and the freshman gets the nod behind center.
Whatever the outcome, the Stadium will be rockin’ and the Cockabooses-that’s the line of old train cabooses outside the stadium that serve as high dollar party wagons-will be hoppin’!
