It's Official: Steve Spurrier Is Not God

Just when the dumba$$ website Steve Spurrier Is God thought they were riding high and fly, the Ole Ball Sack dropped a big stinky at home against Vanderbilt this past weekend. Seriously, Erin Andrews could have worn a wet "Go Cocks" t-shirt and called a better game offensively than Spurrier did. That's probably why they posted this blog yesterday - Link.
We've never had any beef with Spurrier before and we totally agree with him that no "booing" should ever take place at a college football game. In fact, of the 2 1/2 years Spurrier has been at USC, this may be his first game he's had no business losing (unless you consider the bowl loss to Missouri in 05' a failure). No, no, no .... we don't hate Spurrier at all, and we almost feel bad that the chicken curse killed the only sign of hope that gamecock fans had of making it to the SEC Championship game. Their run lasted for a while but finally came to an end. This is nothing new to gamecock fans though. You have all watched your alma mater win some and lose some, and you've all drank after a win and drank after a loss. Hell, if your a Carolina fan, and unless your name is this guy, you've all attended USC for college before, right?

Whys Everyone So Upset?

Why is everyone so upset right now? We just had a bye week and lost to the #11 Virginia Tech Hokies who got lucky on two special teams plays where the officials missed a block in the back penalty on both. We're sitting 7-2 right now (if you include wins against Central Michigan, Duke, and South Carolina), we have the #3 Boston College Eagles coming into Death Valley in a few weeks where Clemson will probably be the favorite, and we have a good but not great Wake Forest team coming into Death Valley. The only game I'm scared of is playing at Maryland. The Fridge has kind of had Tommy Bowden's number over the past few years and they're not a bad team at all this year. Either way, the Clemson supporters have spoken. If Tommy Bowden wins at least 9 games, 50% of the fans say he deserves to come back. I hope Clemson Athletic Director Terry Don Phillips takes noticed of this.

By the way, we will score more than 63 points this coming Saturday against Central Michigan. If you think 63 is a lot, it's not ...... Tommy Bowden and Charlie Whitehurst put 63 points up at South Carolina in 2003. Go Tommy! Go Tigers'!

Don't Take Clemson Football Too Seriously, You'll Never Get Out Alive

Kinda Funny How Clemson Fans Forget So Easily

The TBIG mailbag has been receiving a lot of hateful and borderline threatening letters over the past couple of weeks that even make us fearful for our lives (and you know how gangsta we are). It's one thing to have someone say their gonna kick your ass, but when you have a dumbass redneck farmer wearing purple tell you he's gonna kick your ass, you def. don't take it too lightly. I will be the first to admit that I am questioning my faith in Tommy Bowden right now as well. As the way it looks, there won' be a Tommy Bowden fat-head made for next year, there won't ever be a Tommy Bowden Statue placed inside the WestEndzone, and the Tommy Bowden Wikipedia entry that will be updated at the end of the year won't be to my liking as well. We'll see how the season plays out though, we're not throwing anyone under the bus just yet.

As I sat in my seats - Section R, Row FF, Seats 6 and 8 - one of the Clemson fans (probably a Tigernet nutjob) behind me acted totally out of line the entire ballgame. For every normal word that came out of his mouth, he would have 4 cuss words behind it. Honestly, all I heard were sentences like: mother f-er b!tch stupid a$$. Oh yea, and 2 minutes into the ballgame, he tried to start a fight with a VT Fan! There was actually a peaceful moment there for about 5 minutes when the man behind me left his seat to go to the little boy's room. Luckily for Tiger Nation I didn't see any 4 or 5 star recruits sitting around us who could hear that clown (and yes, Tommy Bowden normally has a lot of 4 and 5 star recruits visiting Clemson on a weekly basis). We're not 100% sure if the season will get turned around and if the players will start executing or not but there is one thing we do know: We won't know a decision on Bowden till the end of the year, so Clemson fans better suck it up and get behind Bowden and our team and stop hurting our chances in recruiting. What if Clemson goes 8-4, and their 4 losses are VT, GT, USC, and BC? 3 out of those 4 teams are in the Top 15. Does Tommy keep his job?

What Regular Season Record At The End Does Tommy Need To Save His Job?

I Don't Know Who This Guy Is, But He's Making Way Too Much Sense To Be Talking On TigerNet

(Click on Picture To Enlarge For Reading)
Wow! You don't see this often at all. Someone actually making a post on TigerNet that makes complete sense and is 100% right and 0% wrong. Things like this happen once or twice a year so I felt the need to point it out.
