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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
