Hear ye, hear ye. Whilst I don't approve of gambling in any form, I feel it is my duty-bound obligation to stand tall for my teams. In the spirit of competition, and in the presence of a worthy opponent, I hereby state the following wager:
- Mississippi State is coming to town Wednesday night to play the USC Gamecocks. Blake at Statedog is a huge MSU fan, and in talking smack, we've settled on a gentleman's agreement. If USC wins (I mean, when), he will add a conspicuous Gamecock logo of some sort to his blog. And should the Gamecocks fall ill with foodpoisoning or something and actually lose in starting the entire cheerleading squad or something, then I will display a prominent MSU token in my header above. The changed logos must stay until the team has won again, thus redeeming their fans and our websites. In other words, Blake better hope MSU wins Saturday so he can take the Gamecock off his website.
Update: Blackout for Men's Basketball vs. Mississippi State :: Fans encouraged to wear all black Wednesday night
Then again, this might not be good. We did this a few years ago for the UFlorida football game. It looked really impressive - everyone dressed in black except for the Gator fans. Problem is, it looked like NOBODY was there except Gator fans. They stood out like sore noisy thumbs, easier for the UF players to point to and play to, etc. It'll either look like "a frenzy of intensity and noise that will give the bulldogs a much needed reality check", or it'll look like a cave.
