as always. But the awe and admiration they have for LSU fans right now is endearing.

Even funnier that he's wrong. The verb, is, agrees with the subject of the sentance, thing, not Gamecocks. Of course a coot would think they are the subject.


there it is***

Honest question here. Do "thing" and "fans" have to agree? Fans are not a thing. Fans are things. A fan base is a thing. How can you say your favorite thing, singular, is fans, plural?

Thoughts? I guess you could make the argument that you meant "Gamecock fans" as a singular group and not as many individuals, but while you might say "The Gamecock fan base is stupid," you would never say "Gamecock fans is stupid."


MASSIVE FAIL!

No wonder you couldn't get into Clemson.


Numb nuts, subject verb agreement: thing is. That is correct***
