Default I Dare You To......

I have noticed tons of Clemson flags and such recently and I applaud them for being proud of their team. If we were 3 in the nation we would be also. I was thinking recently that we have been asking for a PROGRAM AND TRADITION OF WINNING to be built here forever. Over the past three years there has been a steady climb towards the promised land. We all believe that a SEC title and a shot at a National title would announce to the world the we have officially arrived. Then I thought that SOS has been here 9 years because he knows what it takes to build a program. It takes dedication, perseverance, talent, a little bit of luck and a lot of RESILIENCY! Not once on the way to the top has a person, team, school, company or whatever not had their stumbles as they approach the precipice of success. No one has ever succeeded in the absence of setbacks that they felt should not have existed.

Saturday in Athens, we hoped that we would set in motion the season that would finally give us the upperhand to attain all of our goals. We should have performed better. We should have won. We should have a golden path to Atlanta laid out. But instead we were disappointed. But I dare you gamecock nation to be resilient and enthusiastically resilient. Think about it, we have celebrated back to back 11 win seasons, the first of which was the first in school history. Now we have the ability to win 11 regular season games and go for the first 12 win season. Who would not say that is definitely a step in the right direction. Incremental improvement is better than overnight success because the changes seen are usually more lasting.

We are Gamecocks, fight to the death, cheer til it hurts, loyal to the end Gamecocks. let us not worry about what Clemson is doing (SOS said that was nonsense when he got here), let us not fret over chances lost (however big they may have been), let us not pity the faithful because of a failure. Instead, I dare you to fly your flags tomorrow wherever you are. I dare you to wear your colors and embrace the unprecedented success that stills lies within our grasp. I dare you to show the world that last week hurt, but the promise that lies Ahead is greater and gives us more reason to cheer than to cry. Tomorrow fly your flags, wear your colors, put the decals on the ride and let Columbia, let South Carolina, let the nation see that we are Carolina, We Are Still Strong, and We Are Here To Stay. I DARE YOU!!!!!!!!!

By my count, this is like the 114th motivational speech on CT this week. Anyone else get a different number? Is it kickoff yet against Vandy?

Excellent post - don't want to derail this, but as a buddy of mine said "When they're winning you can't stand 'em and when they're losing you can't find 'em!!!!!"

As I'm driving to work this morning in the upstate, I notice that a lot of people up here must have been highly motivated by your post. I've already seen tons of USC flags already.

Maybe I just missed it in History class, but I always understood that the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, not the Germans.

Outstanding and don't tell anyone I said this, as I'll deny it, but at this moment in time I'd relish Clemson showing up for game #12 undefeated. What a treat that'd be!

It never fails. I was going to post a countdown to when someone would point out it was the Japs, but didn't post fast enough.
