Cocks Crow: 200th Post

As we celebrate our 200th post here at the Spurs Up blog, let’s take a look back at some of the most popular posts to grace the page:

1) A Special Message from Ric Flair – Definitely one of the most interesting things to happen here at Spurs Up.  Just out of the blue, one of the greatest pro wrestlers of all-time calls up our ticket manager and leaves a voicemail in character. Less than 24 hours later, we’ve got it up on the site and it took off.  As of now, the YouTube clip has nearly 19,000 views.

2) The Scoop on South Carolina vs. UNC – One of the hot topics floating around regarding the changing of the UNC date as well as who our new opponent would be for the 2010 season.

3) More Stadium Ramp Photos – Most people have seen these photos by now, but leading up to the first home game, these photos were the first glimpse anyone had of the new garnet wraps on the ramps at Williams-Brice Stadium.

Cocks Crow: Basketball Items

Here’s a couple of positive preseason press items for the Gamecock men’s basketball team.  Jason King from Yahoo! Sports has his preseason power rankings for the SEC out and he puts South Carolina at 4th best in the conference:

Not many people are talking about the Gamecocks, who could emerge as one of the nation’s top sleeper teams. Darrin Horn’s squad won 21 games last season but missed the NCAA tournament after faltering down the stretch. That may not happen this season thanks to the return of Dominique Archie and Devan Downey – both of whom withdrew from the NBA draft. Downey, who averaged 19.8 points and 4.5 assists last season, will be one of the top guards in America in 2009-10. Don’t be surprised if aggressive wing Lakeem Jackson blossoms into one of the SEC’s top freshmen.

Senior Devan Downey was also recently profiled in The Sporting News – click here to read. His favorite attribute about himself? His speed.  If you’re still in a basketball mood today, download this new wallpaper for your desktop with Downey:
