Default Why Gamecocks are my second favorite team

Vol here coming in peace.
Here's why ur my second favorite:
Luv ur open when Cocky comes outta the box
Luv ur fight song
Luv ur incredibly loyal fan base thru thick and thin
Luv ur cock-a-booses - great place to tailgate.
Luv how u call Clemson "taters" - even though I don't know what that means?

For those traveling to Knox, have a safe and happy trip.
Think u guys will win comfortably - we really struggle with mobile qbs and our offense is still short on playmakers. Not poor mouthing but Butch just doesn't have the horses just yet to compete with upper echelon teams. Go Vols! Go Cocks!

There are many others, but the last one is where their nickname 'taters' comes from.

Welcome V-Man. Pretty cool place you got there in TN to throw a football party. Always love going to Calhouns on the river there before and after the game.

Those are great. I did know that IPTAY stood for I pay ten thousand a year.
But, the " I plant taters all year" is classic. Will now think of that every time I see an IPTAY sticker on a car....lol

The UT fans I've met through the years aren't toothless hillbillies but really friendly, respectable people. I had a blast up there in '07 other than the overtime loss of course. Weather and scenery were beautiful and stayed in one of those log cabin rentals with a hot tub. Tailgated with many UT fans and enjoyed their company.

I've lived long enough for a Vol fan to come on our board and genuflect.

Hot damn.

I always tell visiting fans that want to tailgate with Vol fans to go down to the river where the Vol Navy boats are docked. Yell out that you want to learn the words to Rocky Top. I guarantee you will be asked to come aboard and get plenty of free food and drink. I had some great free BBQ in Columbia before a game once. One of the reasons that SEC football is so awesome!

Uummm ... that's not where that term came from.

When IPTAY was first started, people were allowed to "pay" with different things. One of those things were potatoes. There were multiple people that paid their fees in "taters" thus the nickname.

Are you serious?

If you are, and you are Cack so it is safe to assume that you are, then I had never heard of that one before. I guess that, "I Plant Taters All Year" comes from that too.

Imabeastonu is correct it started out as "I Pay Ten A Year". As much as I hate clemson; it was marketing genius. It raised tons of money for clemson in the seventy's because they convinced their fan base to give money to the school even if they were not buying tickets. Then if my memory serves me correct, sometime around 1980 they raised it to "I Pay Twenty A Year". Then again, sometime in the mid-eighties they started raising the amount regularly but kept the original name. Unfortunately, as far as college fund raising goes IPTAY may be #1 all-time.
GO COCKS - we always said it stood for "I Pick Taters All Year"

JaxcockFL, that is the best one I have ever heard. Man!!! I wish I would have thought of that back in the seventies when I was in High School considering how bad the "I Pick Taters All Year" used to piss off them off.

Also, back then they had a hard time buy clothing in "orange" so the clemson fans used to take white painters overalls and hats and die them orange and that is how Mr. Knickerbackers got their start. They looked so stupid in the overalls we used to call them "orange idiots".

Welcome! I wouldn't say Tennessee is a favorite team of mine but I don't hate them like I do most of the other east teams. Only been to Knoxville once and we got our butt kicked, but I still had fun!
