The Bandwagon

The TRC bandwagon keeps you up to date on the best places to get Gamecock and other sports-related news and entertainment.

Our Favorite Websites

Every Day Should Be Saturday – We lead with this because it is the standard bearer for all college football blogs.  Spencer Hall and Co. somehow manage to be offensive without offending, and trash your school in a way that makes you laugh.  The humor is not for everybody, and for those people, we feel sorry.

Garnet and Black Attack – With all due respect, the best Gamecock blog out there.  They repurpose the right information, and their original content is thoughtful and well-written.  We hate them.

Life of a Gamecock – How can you not like a site with that title?

Leftover Hot Dog –  Hardcore Gamecocks that you can also occasionally see on Fox in Columbia.

Gamecocks Online – Duh.

The State

Spur of the Moment – Now the property of Darryl Slater, and because of a spat with Tbone now apparently our mortal enemy.

Saturday Down South and Team Speed Kills – Excellent blogs for SEC football.

Gamecock Central, Gamecock Anthem, and The Big Spur – These are the folks in this business to make a little dough.  Take your pick, they all have premium insider packages.  Who’s the best?  Heck, we don’t know.  All we know is stay away from message boards, they kill brain cells.

Cockytalk – Website design hasn’t changed since 1997, so you know it has to be good.  Seriously, we love that these guys do it for the love of the Gamecocks.  (Note: You are allowed to go to this message board, but only to read practice updates from Spurticus.)

ChickenHoops – A cerebral look at Gamecock basketball. VERY cerebral. Like, the opposite of our stuff.

Tigernet – An absolute hoot to visit immediately after a USC victory over CTU, or after CTU loses 70-33 to somebody.

The Meat Locker Sports Blog – Good Charlestonians that love sports.  Gamecock fans, but cover a wide variety of things, mostly on the wacky side.

Garnet Report – A small group of Carolina students who write more and better about Gamecock sports than many of the “professional” sites.

Our Favorite Twitter Follows

Most objections to Twitter involve the phrase “I don’t get it”.  Let me make this clear – you don’t have to “get it”.  You don’t have to get hundreds of followers, and you don’t even have to tweet.  Sign up for an account, start by following the people below, and thank us later.

@rubrchickens – Hey, that’s us!  Two smartasses using one Twitter account can occasionally lead to unintentional schizophrenic hilarity.

@thebucksterr – That’s Buck.

@ITS_DABO – It’s Dabo.

@edsbs – No further explanation needed.

@SIHolly – Former EDSBS writer. Gotta dig chicks that love football this much.

@sportstalksc – Whether it’s Kornblut or K-mac, the most bitter, envious, sniping tweeters we know. We enjoy them immensely.

@jcshurburtt – J.C. Shurburtt, the head cheese at 247 Sports. Put the “uru” in recruting guru.

@lizcgunn – Gamecocks ladies who tweet are the best…er, second best…behind our wives, of course.

@bclickclack aka @teamgarcia5 aka @WookiePaNub – Freakishly frequent tweeter who should not be crossed. Ever.

@LifeofaGamecock – Makes us mad because of a) how much he knows about Gamecock sports and b) how much nicer of a guy than he is than us.

@GarnetReport – See above for their website. Very good Twitter follow, good mix of knowledge, humor and snark. They remind of us of us but a LOT younger. And smarter. And better looking. OK, not like us at all.

@scotthood63 – Good follow, not terribly stingy with his information even though he works for an “insider” site.

@DCAtGCKCentral – David Cloninger of Gamecock Central. Follow his tweets and feel 50-75% worse about the Gamecocks than you already do. Unfollow during baseball season if you’re a Braves fan.

@ESPN_Jenn – Jenn Brown. Rowr.

@JustinKing224 – Videos to make you try to run through a brick wall. But don’t try, it still can’t be done. (Ouch)

@GamecockRadio – He blocked us, so follow him and follow us and retweet him so we can see what asinine things he’s tweeting today.  #kissthering #winanyway #battle

@SkullsAndSpurs, @FeatheredWarrior & @GABAttack – The Garnet and Black Attack guys.

@HalfCockedShow – Also a Garnet and Black Attack production. You don’t have time to listen to two podcasts, so listen to theirs.

@MeetMeAtTapps – Connor Tapp, host of the Half Cocked Show. I guess has this Twitter account to tweet controversial things he doesn’t want associated with the show.

@Jorge_Stevens – George Stevens, master of the sh*tty photoshop to get a retweet, sometimes co-host of the Half Cocked Show who has apparently offed the Feathered Warrior.

@ChickenHoops – Author of the website of the same name, has very little patience with David Cloninger.

@LOHDgamecocks, @MooseLOHD, & @GeneralLOHD – The Leftover Hotdog guys.

@JoshatTheState – The State sucks, Josh was ok, but now seems to have it out for the HBC. Spoiler alert – Josh will lose.

@JayBilas – For entertainment value only.

@NoStephenGarcia – Beat @ITS_DABO in Twitter competition. Cheater.

@PegPelvisPete – From his very own Twitter bio: “Nice guy. Hater. Binge drinker. Excellent speller. Hypocrite. Entendre enthusiast. Enjoyer of sauces. Cock.” A must follow.

@GamecocksOnline – Duh.

@Haney1075 – His name is Haney, so I guess we have to follow.

@bubbaprog – Post screen captures and short videos from sports broadcasts.  Entertaining.

@ajcbraves – If you happen to be a Braves fan.

@meetmeatthe50 – Doug Jolley’s site, good Gamecock, SEC and NCAA info.

@LSUFreek – The best farker on the planet.

@MeatLockerBlog – Frequent tweeters, love to interact.

@smartfootball – Don’t know how this guy is not a coach somewhere. Then again, maybe he is.

Are you missing from this list?  Sorry, we’re not perfect.  Shoot us an email and we’ll get you added.

    how about listing some fave tweeters….


    Hat-tip for the hat-tip.

  3. By the way, I’m not totally sure if the above is sarcasm, but y’all do realize me & PegPelvisPete are one and the same, right? Because I’d hate to think I’m leaving my college loyalty in any sort of question on Twitter and would step up my homerism and Fuck Clemsons posthaste.

  4. Objective one says:

    So, we are only allowed to visit Cockytalk to read play by play practice reports instead of reports with actual analysis in them?

  5. bclickclack says:

    Woo! Thanks!*


  6. Factoid: The Hungarian language is quite different from
    its neighbors, most closely related to Finland and Estonia.

    When people are seeking interior design inspiration for their dining rooms, they often turn to old-style French creations.
    But one drawback is that hair will grow back quite
    fast as the cr.

  8. Effectivement les menus sont bien plus agrèables et en mod solo
    il devient beaucoup plus aisé de réaliser des constructions complexes.

  9. Gmod ten is entirely distinct than 9. so the answer is yes, you
    cannot have gmod 10 addons on your gmod 9.
