FAN PHOTO OF THE DAY

"My Dad, David Griffith (a Legendary Gamecock Fan) and I at the Clemson game 5-10 min after the Gamecocks' big win...and just before they kicked all of us out of the stadium! If you were there, then you know what I mean. (Probably bitter about the loss). Hey- It's Great to be a Gamecock! GO GAMECOCKS! FIGHT!"
