Give South Carolina some credit, the basketball team may be 11-19, but they’ve managed to be interesting as of late… and at least one half tonight. The Gamecocks knocked off Kentucky over the weekend, and trailed Florida by just two heading into the half, but the wheels came off the Cockaboose mid-way through the second half, when Florida began a wild 33-11 run to finish the game, a 72-46 Gator win.
Early in that run, freshman guard Duane Notice did something to anger the always-volatile Frank Martin, who was caught going on this tirade on camera. Lost Lettermen was able to put together an accurate-looking transcription of Martin’s message to Notice.
Gator fans clearly had fun with what turned into a Florida rout, but since this is the SEC, in the end it all boils down to football, and South Carolina fans still have Florida’s abysmal season to hold over their rivals’ heads.
South Carolina fans start chanting “Georgia Southern” at Florida fans who were chanting “It’s great to be a Florida Gator” … amusing

Well played, Gamecocks, well played.
