Gamecock nation assumed because we lost to Auburn in a close game that surely they were better than Auburn, an SEC team that allowed a lowly ACC team to almost beat them. And all of this unfounded arrogance was based a win against a terrible Georgia team this year and a flimsy win they had against Clemson last year .
“We’re better than you” doesn’t work when you can’t beat the same teams your rival plays. If you compare the STATS of each game, Clemson played the better game. We both lost, sure, but it’s great seeing the chickens knocked off of their high roost and brought back to reality. I live in the middle of Gamecock territory and while I try to to engaged too much in the rival “banter” (too many bad stories), it may be tough biting my tongue this week. *giggle* Stay tuned.
