On the heels of the commitment of Marcus Lattimore, USC’s National Championship in baseball and the launch of The Rubber Chickens blog, 2010 was setting up nicely to be a big year for Gamecock football. Which it needed to be, as the Steve Spurrier era had been average at best through 2009.
After a season-opening win over the fighting Larry Fedoras, Lattimore took over the annual battle against Georgia with perhaps the greatest single-game performance in school history. A tough loss at Auburn preceded a monumental win over #1-ranked and streaking Alabama…but then Kentucky.
Fortunately that game didn’t derail our march to the SEC East title, which was clinched with our first ever win in the Swamp. A ho-hum victory over Clemson came right before our first SEC Championship Game, which was a tremendous experience despite the lopsided outcome.
Relive all the magic from 2010 with Buck in this edition of Gamecock Flashback. (Bonus: Justin King videos from the season are here and here.)
