Go Gamecocks! Beat UCLA!

The state of South Carolina was the center of the college baseball world on Saturday night as Clemson and South Carolina battled it out to determine who would face UCLA in the best of three series for the college baseball national championship.  As most know, the Gamecocks won, 4-3.

Though the staff at VUI, save for the two Clemson fans, think of Clemson as the late Lewis Grizzard did, as "nothing but Auburn with a lake," Clemson deserves congratulations on a great baseball season.  The Tigers were unlikely participants in the College World Series, but represented the State of South Carolina and themselves well with their showing.

But, alas, and praise be to God, the Gamecocks beat Clemson twice to get to play UCLA.  With their backs against the wall, the Gamecocks knocked out baseball powers Arizona State and Oklahoma before knocking out Clemson. Even if the Gamecocks do not down UCLA in the championship series, this Gamecock baseball team has to go down as one of the toughest and grittiest sports teams ever to wear the garnet and black.  Gamecock coach Ray Tanner has a group of young men who fight to win at every turn.

Saturday night was a night to be proud of South Carolina, as the state produced two of the three teams left playing college baseball.  It was even a better night to be a Gamecock.  Go Gamecocks! Beat UCLA!

    From a Tiger Fan:

    To repeat an announcer earlier in the week. There are no slouchers here, you have had to earn your way to get this far. Hoping the Gamecocks go all the way.
