SEC Football: Oversigning (“Cheating”)=More Championships

auburn_cam_newton

As Wes Bynum’s 19-yarder sailed through the desert air to split the uprights and down Oregon in the Tostitos BCS national championship there was no question Auburn was the best team in college football.  There was also no doubt which conference was at the top of the summit.  The cheers of “S-E-C” that rained down like ticker-tape on the Auburn players and coaches was evidence enough.  Fans chanting the conference’s moniker knew, and so did the rest of the nation, the SEC, with victories in the last five national championships, was college football’s king.

#23 South Carolina Gamecocks: College Football 77 in 77

And of course “COCKS” with “University of South Carolina” just above the brim.

“It’s funny because it’s slang for genitalia! HAHAHAHAHAHA.  It works on so many levels. OMG ! That’s just too EFFING FUNNY! That is so clever, interesting, and unique. Please tell me where I can get one, so I can be witty and original!!!!!”

But hey at least the South Carolina Gamecocks had some fake, bandwagon fans for awhile because of these hats. Ok enough bread and circuses, let’s talk SC FOOTBALL! Place at the table!
