South Carolina Football: Why I Hate Watching

South Carolina, I will admit, has some cupcakes on this year's schedule.  Or at least games that the Gamecocks will be heavily favored in. 

One of these games is against the ECU Pirates who are 24.5 point underdogs.  While ECU is the most dangerous of the "cupcakes," a good team should have no problems pounding the Pirates.  The Gamecocks still have UAB and Wofford. 

Now, I am not calling the Gamecocks out on their schedule.  It's brutal, and they need these types of games.  Every team has them, so there is no point in arguing about who has a more "cupcakes."  I also believe that these games do worlds of good for the smaller schools monetarily.  I think that's great.

But as a fan...specifically a Gamecocks fan...I hate watching them, and I hate when they come up on the schedule. 

Here's why.
