Not only do I hate Joe Person as a beat writer, but when I found out he was a USC GameDick, it made me hate him as a person (punny)

He wasn't a Gamecock, he just worked for a website called "gogamecocks.com" which is a run off of "The State" newspaper, which is the last place I go for Gamecock news.  He was horrible there too.   If we were lucky enough for him to go cover another team and Panther fans had to deal with the stigma that we were Person fans,  we would all hate him even more.  This is how Gamecock fans feel about him.  At least we were smart enough to get rid of him.   

 

And by the way, why do you hate the Gamecocks so much?

And by the way, why do you hate the Gamecocks so much?

Among a multitude of reasons, I will pick out my top 2:

 

Number 1:

And Number 2:

 

And an obnoxious and overbearing friend since high school and now colleague of mine is a South Carolina fan, and I'd rather gouge my eyes out than have another college football discussion with him. I'm not saying I'm the smartest guy, but the majority of South Carolina fans that I've talked football with have made my IQ lower. Of course there will be exceptions to every rule.

I used to hate Spurrier when he coached the gators.  He always seemed smug.  However, I really feel that his vibe and persona have changed since those days, especially since he got an opportunity to fail in the pros.  Since he's been our coach I've grown to admire him for his honesty, integrity,  and his ability to build a program.  He's done a lot of great things not only for the University but the state as a whole.   There are new complexes built at the school with the money he's helped bring in.  You could argue he's had a small role in the recent success of our baseball team because of the investments in the new stadium/ facility, money he helped bring in.  USC has recently opened a Gamecock store  on King St down here in Charleston that also has USC guidance counselors on staff helping prospective students.  

 

We used to get no respect in football.  Now we've finished top 12 the past two years, top 25 the past 4 or 5 seasons.  We own Clemson.  We've owned any NC based school. Point blank, he's turned us into the best team in the region.   If he decided to leave USC and be closer to Pinehurst and coach ECU you would be ecstatic.  

 

But yes a lot of Gamecock fans are obnoxious, UGA fans are the worst.

 

Plus because of him we have those badass camo unis.

joe Person sucks as a beat writer, most of his stuff seems to be what if or could be, he's a reporter he should be focused on facts.

Can't disagree with anything you said. However, hatred for South Carolina (notice I don't call it USC or even worse what really makes my blood boild is when it's referred to as CAROLINA), is ingrained in my DNA I suppose.

Rivera just hates Gettis. Gettis will probably go to the Patriots or Broncos and become a star. He was awesome his first year

I thought about that. There are probably several teams hoping we are foolish enough to cut him. I wish Gettleman's approach to D-line applied to WRs ie. you can't teach size and speed. We have like seven 5'9" medium speed guys. I don't know why they wouldn't give Gettis reps with Cam based on his tangibles alone.

I think you gotta throw Hixon in there as the #3 even though he's not practicing right now.  He and Ginn with both see time at the 3. AE is definitely in the top 5 - he's ahead of Ginn at this point in the depth chart and with the plays he's making. 

 

I could agree with the Hixon as #3  Not sure AE is ahead of Ginn.  Both had good OTAs and mini-camps  Ginn can stretch the field unlike anyone we have on the roster.  Well Gettis but no one knows whether his injuries will have an effect on his speed.

I honestly wish somebody could find out what is going on with Gettis.

 

Is he not running the the right routes or doesn't know the playbook or is he dropping everything.

 

Some of these reports from PY and J Person make it seem like it's a pre determined decision.

 

That it's already a done deal and Gettis is out.

 

If so why not cut him and let him try to catch on a team before TC??  That is a shitty way to treat a guy to keep him on your team if you plan on cutting him.

I really think that the whole RR/Gettis thing from last season... no matter what it was... is still lingering.

I don't recall ever hearing what happened there. but he came off the PUP list if I recall and then was in for 3 plays total and was never seen again.

 

if I recall someone said something about Gettis being upset he wasn't on the field and RR got on him? or something like that.... I can't recall exactly. But, if the guy is on the roster now, he should get a fair shake as all the rest. We've heard about Adams dropping punts, but have we heard about Adam catching passes or Pilares?

Maybe they are just catching passes are are not "spectacular" catches.. so nothings being reported?

Again tho, it's not TC with pads, and not preseason with real game action.

I think that's where Gettis showed up... not practice... kinda like Jake. If I recall he wasn't a good practice QB, but was pretty dam good on game day.

We're all in wait and see mode tho... so I guess we'll wait and see.

We may never know but I would imagine it was something he did or more than likely did not do in the game and at practice. I cannot imagine that Rivera has a personal vendetta. I think he will be given another chance in camp but at this point I am not optimistic.

This is not the fifth grade why would Chico hate Gettis? Did he take his taco from him?Throw his burrito to the ground piss on it? I think Rivera is above that

We all like to think things don't take place, but I wouldn't rule it out on the argument that this isn't the fifth grade.  We are all human. :)
