I started going pretty routinely since 99, just to give a frame of reference.

Was there for a lot of the recent big ones, but the one that stands out is 2010 UGA.

It's rare, at least at USC, to get to watch a player and know that you're witnessing something that'll be talked about for years. Had Lattimore just been able to stay healthy, God only knows what he could've accomplished. It was great to watch him break the tackles and even though the score wasn't impressive, everyone knew that they'd just seen something amazing.

And just for a frame of reference, Garcia was 12-17 that game with seven passes to Alshon. Meaning, aside from Alshon, 5 other passes were caught and Lattimore was the team.

My favorite moment was UGA in, I believe 2012. I wish I had been there, but I remember watching on tv and the stadium was rocking so hard the cameras were vibrating enough to blur the TV picture every few seconds.

It's Bama 2010 for me. As others have said there was just something about that game all day long. It almost felt like a lock that we would win that game and the crowd was just crazy into celebrating that one. Of course I was equally sure we would lose to Kentucky the next week so that's kind of bitter sweet.

In regards to the goal posts I remember the students rushing the field before the game ended and trying to tear down the goal posts. I remember telling my wife we would end up forfeiting the game when the post broke before it was over which would be the most Carolina way to lose a game.

So true. Told the wife, "We'll blow our load then lose to UK next week, but I'll take it." That's the talk of a man that's watched lots of Carolina football.

Same game. Me and my date were denied entry to student section (even tho we had student tickets and they had just started the Loyalty program) supposedly bc it was at capacity (full disclosure i reeked of fighting cock and Sams club cola). Found a seat behind a nice family, my date proceeds to spill vodka all over them trying to spike her lemonade. Feel bad so head back to memorial lot to watch game w/ rest of degenerates that couldn't make it in. Almost knock a guy unconscious celebrating that tackle D stew had on Mcclusteter. Get swine flu the next night at a massive band party (technically a dj). I had some friends from ole miss in town spent entire weekend putting a towel over my head imitating Snead and calling it my Heisman pose.

Ya know, my favorite memory in Willy B was also a Carolina loss, but I tried to be discrete about how I talked about it on a Carolina message board. Sure, I could have been a jerk about it, but I try to have a little more respect than that...

Mine was when I went to all the home games with my Dad in the late 70's and early 80's. He was Gamecock Club member and we had 4 seats for all the home games. One for each family member.

We had so many good games back then, but we came back against Wake Forest in the driving rain and won the game late in the fourth quarter on a deep pass which Ira Hillary caught for a TD very close to where we were sitting. A lot of people had left because defeat seemed imminent and it was raining like mad. We stayed with our poncho's on and everyone in the stadium went crazy when he caught the TD pass that snatched victory from defeat.

The most fun I ever had at a football game with my Dad.

I was there in 1990 and was actually sitting with the Citadel coach's wives, even drove back to Mt. P with one of the Citadel assistant coaches - after an awkward Cockaboose visit with the coach in tow. I hate that we lost but felt good for the Citadel folks.

But one time was enough. No need to give them anther W in 2015 or any time in the future.

I had been dating my wife for about 3 months, when I was able to get us tickets to the 2009 game against Ole Miss.

At that time I was 2 years removed from graduation, so attending a game without the excitement of the student section was difficult proposition. Sandstorm was still a new experience, one that brought out the raw emotions of the crowd. That final 2 minutes saw my wife and I screaming our heads off, me to the extent of bloodying my throat. That night pretty much cemented my relationship with my future wife, and set the stage for what could be possible at the heights of the Spurrier era. This was certainly one of the greatest nights of my life.

This was a great one to be at for sure. I actually had a good time at the vandy game that year too. The game where alshon saved the day and took a short pass to the house in 4th quarter. Crowd was really loud after that touchdown.

I made the mistake of going to the Ky game the next week.

Haven't been to a game since the early 70s. Probably best experience was in HS when I was an usher and got to watch the game - Don't know which ones- from the field. I don't remember much about College.

Georgia 2012 and Tennessee 2016 still stand as my favorites. It wasn't at Williams Brice, but 2014 Capital One Bowl is one of my top Gamecock football experiences as well.

I was in the stadium as a Cadet in 1990, and watched 2015 on TV. Because of that, the two games were totally different affairs. As I said, 1990, was a fond memory, because I knew many of the guys on the field that day. To be 100% honest, 2015 was bittersweet for me. Even as a Citadel fan I'm still not sure the call at the end of the game was the right one. 2015 was just a weird football season all the way around.
