The Gamecocks are so 2011

For 22 straight playoff games the rest of the college baseball world was at the mercy of South Carolina fans. Say anything that could be perceived as not completely worshipping the Gamecocks and you were (as Eric Sorensen put it) “at the risk of death threats.”

It was a non-stop gloatfest. I’ve never understood why a team that’s accomplished so much still has fans that feel the need to constantly try to use the internet to further inflate their egos. Let the winning do the talking, Cockheads. Leave the cheap smack talk for the losers.

And now, they’ve finally lost, so as one of those losers (soon, Dirtbag fans, soon) I will now take the opportunity to use that cheap trash talk.
