Default Ric Flair and the Gamecocks

What is the connection between the two? I noticed the emote when I first joined the site and then saw him at the game on Saturday.

I'm obviously aware that this is a joke, but I cannot let it slip by without pointing out that it was actually my great-great-great-great grandfather who founded USC (originally South Carolina College) in 1801.

Wikipedia page says he was born in Memphis, grew up in Minnesota, and now lives in Charlotte, NC. So other than a friendship along the lines, not really finding any connection.

The connection is, Flair said that he always enjoyed Spurrier's teams at Florida. Now he enjoys Spurrier's teams at South Carolina.

bottom line is Spurrier and Flair have been great friends over the years...this is why he comes to the games...it just so happens we have used 2001 since 1983...no connection with Flair

USC was founded by a General Assembly headed by Gov. John Drayton. Was the Gov. your 4Xgreat-grandfather?
