Hey there, sports fans!

 

The South Carolina Gamecocks spent the last 168 hours trying to battle the daunting invisible opponent known as ‘bye week’, and have arrived at the other side (mostly) unscathed. This is a good thing, because the team travels to Athens this weekend to face off against a top-five Georgia Bulldogs squad that looks mighty terrifying.

That’s not gonna stop us from making ‘Jake Fromm State Farm’ jokes. Or more ‘Major League’ references. You get what you pay for.

Just because because there wasn’t a game played in WillyB last weekend, it doesn’t mean it wasn’t an action-packed weekend FULL of winners and losers:

DC3 injured himself in a remarkably dad way.

An announcer made the most deadpan hail mary call ever.

A D-3 team is beating its opponents so bad they got an invitation to jump straight into FCS.

The Gamecocks have exactly one quality soccer program and that’s fine.

Apparently SMU is also back.

We also (with a fair amount of dread) look ahead to the impending matchup with UGA. Including our keys to the game, the folks we need to have show up in order to have a chance, and our best attempt at final score predictions.

There’s also your favorite new segment: ‘One Pressing Question’, in which we pose the age old query: “If you could change one game in Carolina history, which one would it be??” Which, in true GABACast fashion, turns into a conversation about Blake Mitchell and how everything always relates back to Baylor.

 

We hope you enjoy the show!
