ALL HAIL COCKS

And a fine Monday morning to you too. We’ll get right to SRPOTS for a change and let’s just begin by saying that if you’re not a graduate of Gonzaga, Oregon, or North Carolina and aren’t pulling for the Cinderella Gamecocks you basically hate goodness, children, excitement, America, and all the fuzzy things that make sports cliches so ultimately palatable.

But no, really, you should embrace the Gamecocks. Their coach is sticking up for kids who are through some bizarre rift in the fiber of the universe are taking heat from “adult” journos. There’s this touching father-son moment of celebration. There’s the rarity of the 7 seed taking down the 2, 3, and 4 seeds. Including SEC East rivals Florida. Most importantly, they’re really having fun.

Besides, Kentucky has already gone home. Enjoy your new elite SEC program.
