A Thursday night victory over South Carolina in 2008 for the ‘Dores

The head ball coach (yeah, click clack) takes his 9th-ranked Gamecocks into Vanderbilt Stadium to open the 2012 season this Thursday. Awaiting is James Franklin’s Vandy squad and a little bit of history.

The last time a ranked South Carolina football team played on a Thursday night in Nashville was 2008.

They lost to Bobby Johnson’s ‘Dores 24-17.

Spurrier brings a much better Gamecock team to Vanderbilt in two nights. However, an improved team resides in Nashville too.

Let’s all go to Tootsie’s.
