South Carolina upsets No. 1 Alabama

The Tide got rolled.

South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia passed for three touchdowns Saturday as the Gamecocks knocked off previously undefeated Alabama, 35 – 21, in Columbia, South Carolina.

Tide quarterback Greg McElroy, who threw for 315 yards and two scores, endured his first loss as a starter since the eighth grade.

The stout Gamecocks defense held Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram to 41 yards rushing.

Both teams have one loss.

    It's a mistake to under estimate the Tide and I don't live or root for Alabama....each team has lost one game.

    Who cares! College football is a big waste of time to watch. How absurd can people be?
    There is no playoffs to decide two final teams to play against each other to determine a champion through the process eliminating all the rest! So it's the game of fools! Those who coach, play and cheer it.
    Worse, these greedy college people who make alot of money from the bowl system are screwing over their entire fan base while losing a much greater one because many people are not that naive.

    Ah heck. Just resending it in it's correct form:

    Carolina. No. Just stating the facts. I'm not bitter. You are bitter because you didn't present a rebuttal.
    You just chose the liberal method of throwing out some absurd comment instead.
