We still love the Gamecocks, but dang... this link kind of puts the school's historical football performance in perspective-
This is South Carolina Football
The link is from a Clemson bloggers' website.
Resource favorite part:
And no one should forget the fact that Carolina went two consecutive seasons without winning one conference game, not one (1998 and 1999). Carolina had an impressive string of 21 consecutive games with a loss snapped in 2000 by beating New Mexico State (then let the rest of the country know what Carolina football was all about by tearing down the goal-posts).
Methinks that South Carolina/Clemson rivalry is pretty heated. The fight/melee last year is a good starting point.
