How your first football game will go at USC

Your First USC Football Game: Told by the office

Wake up and rally gamecocks... it's game day.


It's about to be that time of year again. The sun is shining, Columbia has reached grossly hot temperatures, and college students are making their way back to campus, ready for another year full of South Carolina shenanigans.

That being said, Fall really only means one thing when you're a gamecock... and that's football season. With the first home game upon us, everyone is stocking up on Pedialyte and getting ready for a day full of good, clean fun. So whether you're a rookie freshman, or a seasoned veteran senior, here is how your first Saturday at Willy B will probably end up.

Wakey wakey!

You'll wake up around 8 a.m., way too early for a Saturday. You'll be mad at first, but once the first sound of Sandstorm plays you will have no problem jumping out of bed and getting your day started.

The Outfit

Then it's time to pick out what to wear. Do you go classic black dress and cowboy boots? Or do you change it up with some shorts and a cocks crop-top? Either way, you're going to sweat off all your makeup anyway so really don't even bother.

The most important meal of the day

Now you're not going to think it's important, but it is. Eat breakfast. Whether it's Chick-fil-a chicken minis, or maybe some Bojangles chicken and biscuits, it will 100% be the least nutritious breakfast of your lifetime, but it will be great.

Uber important...

Once you eat, you'll want to Uber to the tailgating lots... at which point you will realize you don't have remotely enough money to pay for the surcharged price to get approximately two miles. May the odds be ever in your favor when it comes to actually getting to the lots.

The Lots

Whether it be the frat lots, memorial, or the fair grounds, you finally get there and realize that there are way too many people trying to take over this college city. So prepare yourself to elbow some people, and get shoved around all while trying to find your friend that's standing two feet away from you.

...and everyone around you is probably falling over drunk...

Willy B

Finally, it's kickoff. The sounds of Williams Brice Stadium take over your entire body. Sandstorm is blasting, rally towels are waving, and football season has official started.

Forever to Thee

So here's to the best season, under a Carolina sky. Go Cocks.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
