The Gamecocks didn’t lose to The Citadel on Saturday. They were robbed of a win after their touchdown in the closing seconds of the 4th quarter was called back because “not all of the players were set.” Here’s the thing, though. EVERYONE WAS FUCKING SET. Look at this bullshit.
Granted, the game shouldn’t have been so close to begin with, but that was an absolutely garbage call that cost South Carolina their first loss to an FCS program in 25 years, dropping them to an abysmal 3-8.
The season is such a piece of suck, Spurrier peaced out halfway through the season. Things are bad. Real bad. And with the new head coach yet to be named, I doubt they’ll pick up any recruits with the ability to turn things around any time soon.
One USC student named Tripp Harmon captured the feelings of Gamecocks everywhere in a widely-shared, 9-second video:

That about sums it up.
I was so torn up after the loss, I locked myself in my room the rest of the weekend and released my anguish the only way I know how: By binge-eating string cheese and masturbating furiously. I just sat on my bed sobbing, my chapped, bloody penis in-hand, piles of crusty tissues and empty Polly-O wrappers surrounding me. I was in a bad way. Luckily, no one filmed me while I was trapped in my pit of despair and mozzarella and semen. Harmon wasn’t so lucky.
He has gotten a lot of hate for his emotional response.
From Charleston City Paper:
“Of course, you’re going to have some of those people saying, ‘What a shame to be this guy’s father’ and calling me names and things like that. It’s whatever. I don’t really care what people say, honestly. I don’t know them. If it makes them feel better about themselves, that’s totally OK with me,” he says.
But Harmon is handling it in the best way possible. He’s donating 10 cents for every retweet of the video to the family of local resident Shawn Vowels, who died in a motorcycle accident on Sunday.
@mebxo every retweet my video gets I will donate .10 to Shawn Vowels medical expenses he needs after a motorcycle accident! Keep it going
