oh and the best thing about them... a bunch of Gamecocks at the bar we went to last night... even had the Tennessee fans doing the chop with us.
You're absolutely right! I too was at the game yesterday, sitting in the upper deck right under the huge jumbotron. It was very loud, and no Tennessee fans said anything nasty to me following the game. They were nice, polite, and a few asked me how Shaw was doing. I remember telling one Lady was I was walking out that I knew Butch Jones would turn Tennessee around and help them win again, I just didn't want it to be against us. And she said that win meant a lot to them. But was not nasty or degrading to USC at all! Was my first SEC road game, and I'd love to head back to Rocky Top for another game with them! Great experience and great SEC atmosphere!
