Name any length of history where the Gamecocks have a winning record over Clemson. They are 0% over the last 5 years. 50% over the last 10. And Less than that over 11,12,13....100 years. HA!

I believe the last time they lead the series was 1896 at 1-0. Then after the 97 game it was tied up. After that we have lead the series, and always will.

Not sure you followed the rules. Let me help..

Over the past 1 year they are 0%,
Over the past 2 years they are 0%,
Over the past 3 years they are 0%,...
Over the past X years they are Y%.
Name a value for X, where Y is greater than 50%.

will be 6-5 over the past 11. That would be depressing! But we are 15-7 over the last 22 years, I believe.

I got it. I was agreeing with you. I was only pointing out the only time they were above 50% in the series was 1896, when they won the 1st game.

1896 uscjr 100%

1897 uscjr 50%

downhill ever since

I remember that one year they won the SEC East.. and then singlehandedly got obliterated by Cam Newton.

That same year, I don't think anyone got as close to beating Auburn as we did - took them to OT.

And had they not hit Kyle Parker really late and injured him that year we would have beaten the National Champions. That year would have been completely different had KP not gotten hurt and played hurt the rest of the season.

All I know is that I cannot live long enough to ever see them having a winning record against CLEMSON.

In Indonesia the chicken has great significance during the Hindu cremation ceremony. A chicken is a channel for evil spirits (all Tiger’s have known this for over a century) which may be present during the ceremony. A chicken is tethered by the leg (I didn’t realize BuzzPaw had been to Indonesia) and kept present at the ceremony for the duration to ensure that any evil spirits present during the ceremony go into the chicken and not the family members present. (So, religion has proven what we already knew, chickens are evil)


What say you?
