…and all through Gamecock Nation
South Carolina fans were filled with anticipation.
The program had done its recruiting with care,
In hopes that future stars soon would be theirs.
The recruits were nestled all snug in their beds,
while visions of Williams-Brice danced in their heads.
And Steve in his visor, and Sir Big Spur on his roost,
Had just settled in, waiting to see who’d be introduced.
The next day across the country there’d be so much chatter,
As athletes would announce decisions on a very important matter.
Away to the internet we’d fly like a like a flash,
To the TVs and radios we’d make a mad dash.
With a coach so respected, so smart, and so clever,
They’d know that failure wasn’t an option – never!
More rapid than eagles, the letters they came,
And each new player was announced, excitedly, by name:
Now Rico! Now Shaq!
Now Mike and Nick!
On Chaz! On Kyle!
On Chris and Kendric!
To the top of the conference!
To the top of the country!
Now win! Win more!
You all must stay hungry!
The players will speak the right words, they’ll show that they care,
And prove they meant what they proudly declared.
Placing the new USC hat on their head,
They’ll all became bound by one common thread.
They’ll meet in Columbia, they’ll wave and high-five,
And on Saturdays, they’ll help make Willy-B come alive.
And you’ll hear them exclaim, as you drive out of sight,
“It’s great to be a Gamecock, y’all! Good night!”
