FAN PHOTO OF THE DAY

Great Fan Photo of the Day today from Todd Marquis in Nashville who has used social media to help assemble Gamecocks in the area to attend events.

"Gamecock Nation is alive, well, and growing in Nashville, TN.  Using social media, the Gamecocks in Nashville are making their presence felt at Carolina sporting events in Tennessee.  Our Facebook group can be found by searching Nashville Gamecocks.  A large group of us held a big tailgate party across from Hawkins Field during this past weekend baseball series against Vanderbilt.  We even had the pleasure of having Matt Price's Mom Deanna tailgate with us on Sunday morning.  The picture is a group shot of us before Saturday's game.  We were loud, proud, and all agree It's Great To Be A Gamecock!"
