So do I. I think most of that comes from SOS being our coach. I have had a lot of UF fans tell me that they wish they still had him.

Class of 2011. Fan since birth, and the only graduate in my family.

Grew up in the upstate and had a lot of clemson influence but my dad was always a fan

Wife got her Masters in social work at USC, that's where I met her. She moved me up here (have a pretty damn good gig here too), and I'm working on my MBA at NKU currently. Also wear my G&B around Cincy and in the office on Fridays. I run into Carolina Alumni all the time. ** Side note - I also work with a Clemmy alumn who's bought my lunch several times over the last few years due to an annual bet.

Some of the people who voted as alumni confuse me. I swear some of the same folks have said on the board their alma mater was another school.

Cocky kidnapped me and held me hostage in the sub-basement of the Russell House until I agreed to enroll. JK. Proud graduate of The USC. Graduation was one of the happiest days of my life as I smiled and yelled Clemson sucks for the camera as I walked across the stage.

Born and Bred Gamecock, went to every game during the 99-00 seasons. Was lucky enough to call Columbia home for the best four years of my life. USC '12. And congrats to my fraternity brother Kyle Carpenter for getting his medal of honor today, true hero.

Ok, I gotta share this one (my wife just sent it to me).

My little boy in my jacket (from the early 1970's) and the brand new gamecock baseball cap from his grandparents.....

'06

Started off in the Towers (Moore). The word 'nostalgia' doesn't even come close to describing how I feel when I think of those early days in college...or even more when I go back to visit campus. The newness was overwhelming but the feeling of freedom was even more powerful. I'd pay a lot to go back to those days and experience it all again. Everything was "new" to me. I grew up in a town of 2,000 people and no one from my town went to Carolina my year, and anyone who had before then- I didn't really know. My family didn't have much money, so I scholarship/granted my whole way through and survived off of excess checks to buy books and food. I bought my first cell phone and plan (Nokia) on campus in front of the SC Bookstore. I was on campus for 3 months before realizing where 5 Points was...campus seemed "huge" to me. The environment around me and my outlook on life expanded a lot in those first two years.

A lot changed while I was there with Carolina, too. Russell House went through serious renovations, the Quads were being built, the Strom Thurmond Center was built, the Greek 'hood was built, the Carolina/Colonial Center was built, baseball & football really became *strong* while I was there, and even the basketball team had back to back NITs (yeah, I know- but still) and it was just a great time to be a Gamecock.

When I think back, a lot of the memories and thoughts rushing through my head are blurs...and not just from the partying. So many awesome memories packed into a 4 year period that clarity is kind of lost on me.

I could go on and on, sorry about that.

Huge fan since '86. grew up in socal than moved here because of the navy. Always heard how Carolina sucked and how clemson. That was a good enough reason for me. I love the underdogs and clemson fans were d!ickheads.

I was at Carolina for one semester back in 1985...... then I joined the Navy because I got my High School sweetheart pregnant. I also despise orange...... the only orange you will find in my house is orange juice! For this, I can thank my Uncle (An Alumni).... he took me to games in Willyb starting in 1978.

Even though I am not an alumni, I bleed garnet and black...... and would rather be at a Gamecock sporting event than anything else in the world!!! Started following Gamecock sports at the ripe age of 9..... remember many times of listening to a transistor radio, barely able to pick up a signal, just to follow the Gamecocks! Folks today have no idea how lucky they are! You can literally watch every game on TV or internet. Back then, you were lucky to catch a game......

Bottom line, I live and die Gamecocks..... and paid my dues with MANY lean years in the last 36 years I have followed the Gamecocks! And for those of you who are attending, or those that graduated from USC....... I truly envy you!

For me..... it's not an option..... it's a way of life! One I treasure!

My wife has a Masters in social work from USC as well. She doesn't use it in her current career. Can I ask when your wife got hers
