re: Worst game that you've ever attended as a fan? - UpstateCock2007
I know most Gamecock fans are saying the Birmingham Bowl, but 2008 in the Swamp was the worst for me. Poured down rain, got destroyed by Harvin, Tebow, Demps, etc. Just a terrible all-around game....

re: What was your earliest SEC/College sports memory? - UpstateCock2007
My earliest SEC memory was when Hank Campbell stopped the Tennessee player at the goal line to beat the Vols in 92. I was 7 at the time and went with my grandparents who sat in the West Lower Deck, section 8, right where it happened. My earliest college sports memory was Laettner’s shot against ...

re: Yesterdays in 5 Pts to Close After 43 Years - UpstateCock2007
Yesterday’s did some things really well, others not so much. I always enjoyed it. I actually ate there a couple of months ago and wish I had known that would be the last time. Whoever moves into that space will have one helluva remodeling job. The dips and bumps in the floors almost caused man...

re: Covid 19 check in thread. - UpstateCock2007
Haven’t heard about that. The person I was referring to had a heart issue and caught corona in the hospital and died. Cause of death was listed as corona rather than the heart/obesity/diabetes the person had battled for years. Also, the baby in CT... terrible. The baby is suffocated but the gove...

re: Covid 19 check in thread. - UpstateCock2007
I have an issue with the death projection, bc in some places, they are doing the testing after the person dies. If that person is found to be positive for covid-19, that’s automatically being labeled as the cause of death. In the case of one lady in NOLA, she died from covid-19, but they failed to...

re: Covid 19 check in thread. - UpstateCock2007
Let me rephrase... resume normal activities. Going to the beach? Sporting events? Dinner in restaurants? Also, what numbers are you referring to? The ones I saw yesterday said 100k-200k, but I am guessing the ones you saw are much higher given the comparison you made. This whole thing is j...

re: Covid 19 check in thread. - UpstateCock2007
Played golf Saturday morning, and that is the only social interaction I have had other than at home with the wife and kid and with the few co-workers who are in the office. I only watch sports on TV, so that’s been the biggest thing. Don’t really do movies or any series....

re: Covid 19 check in thread. - UpstateCock2007
All good in Columbia. All of my branches are drive thru only starting today. Most business is done by phone/online. I am here for moral support at the moment, but will probably WFH some this week, too. I am hoping this is just a blip on the radar in a few months, because social distancing is not...

re: USC will extend spring break a week to ‘mitigate the spread’ of coronavirus - UpstateCock2007
Yes - no more than three days at a row unless there is a pandemic or natural disaster. I’ve worked in banking for 11 years, and we had to tread around this in 2011 when part of our market was slammed by a snow storm with no warmup. Issues like this require approval....

re: 2019-20 Men’s Basketball Season thread - UpstateCock2007
Last night would have bought us a mulligan the rest of the way out. I think we need to go 5-0 to close out the regular season to get in unless we win the SECT....

re: RB Coach - UpstateCock2007
Same. I was really hoping McClendon would get the Steelers job though. $1 million for a WR coach, even if just for one year, throws the budget off and doesn’t allow us to maximize this staff....
