Chicken Curse or Not, South Carolina Wins College World Series

The Gamecocks were the comeback kids in the NCAA Tournament needing three come from behind wins in their Regional and needing four straight wins to even reach the College World Series finals after dropping their opening game to Oklahoma.

Once in the finals, South Carolina swept UCLA including the 2-1 series clincher in 11 innings.

To make it even sweeter for Gamecocks fans, they knocked out Clemson by winning two straight sending the Tigers home in the last College World Series to be played at Rosenblatt Stadium.

This South Carolina program is no 'Johnny Come Lately' in college baseball. They had been runner up three times in Omaha and from 2000-2004 won more games than any other program.

My friends at The College Baseball Blog have a full writeup on the game including some poignant quotes from South Carolina Head Coach Ray Tanner

Garnet and Black Attack tries to wrap their head around what this means for South Carolina, including a Chicken Curse poll!
