Game – Cocks! Game – Cocks! You could hear the cheer reverberating throughout Rosenblatt Stadium last night as the University of South Carolina Gamecocks pulled out an extra inning victory against UCLA to claim the College World Series National Championship. Congrats to the Gamecocks for winning their first Baseball national championship!
The Gamecocks battled back after losing their first game and rattled off a CWS record six straight wins to claim the title, beating a UCLA team that most people expected to win. (On a side note, the commentators kept mentioning how many overall national championships UCLA has, and then mentioned that their largest number, I think 19, comes in Mens volleyball. Ok, seriously. I respect mens volleyball, but how many schools even have it as a D1 program? Its a great accomplishment, but….)
Certainly not lost in all the excitment is the fact that the SEC has taken home another national championship, including back to back titles in College Baseball. The SEC once again out-performed the rest of the country (granted, men’s volleyball, ballroom dancing, and other non-awesome sports are excluded), especially the Big Ten, which, all jokes aside, is not even relevant in college baseball.
S-E-C! S-E-C! S-E-C!
