Living in the Columbia, SC area EVERYTHING is Gamecock garnet and black. The wife is a football fan and it's too far a drive to get to her Bengals games, so we have taken in a few SC games.
Well, a close friend is from Texas and she is an A&M Aggie. Having a family ranch in the area she invited us to spend a week and go see the SC/A&M game.
Let's just say I was a little apprehensive walking up to Kyle Field wearing Gamecock regalia. You always read in the news about poor fans and how they treat the opposing team fans.
I was AMAZED!! No other way to put it. Outside the stadium, inside walking to our seats, heck even waiting in line for the men's room people kept walking up and welcoming us to College Station, thanking us for attending the game or just a quick handshake and thanks for coming.....
A&M should be proud of the demeanor of their students and fans!
