Black Magic - 30 Years Later
 
As we start a new season of Gamecock football, I'm reminded about Carolina's season of 1984...Joe Mo's Black Magic team.

They set the standard of winning at USC up until the Spurrier run we've been on the last few seasons.

I can only hope - like the really good season Lou had in 2001 (year of the Gamecocks) - that the symmetry lines up for this year's Carolina football team...and grab that elusive SEC championship!

Off to the W-B...

GO COCKS!!

Why not the 2014 team... No one thought the 1984 team would be special.
Go cocks

There will never be another season like 1984 and Black Magic. You had to be there to know what I'm talking about.

Always wished I could my hands on a copy of that song.

I could not agree more. But going into that season, we never expected the results.

I love exclusionary posts like this.
Its saying "unless you were blessed to be like me, then you'll never be blessed in the same way again- you can never know!"

Ah, the camaraderie of Gamecock Nation!

I think what he was trying to say, was there was a feel about that season. We went into a lot of Gams as underdogs, yet found a way to win.

That and it was magical. A song was playing called "Black Magic" A tree had 6-0 painted on it near the horseshoe after Carolina beat Notre Dame. A quick kick was called on third down during the UGA game. It was amazing and there will never be another season like it.


that being said, there was no Sandstorm, there were 70K there instead of 80k, there was no monster board, we were not in the SEC and we had not completed back to back to back double digit win seasons. So, the golden times are now, my friends.
