You have no favorite boards.
Watching them come off the sidelines yesterday had me choked up. My seats are in the club on the Gamecocks sideline just above the tunnel where the Gamecocks run out. In other words, I could not have been sitting in a better (or worse) place to view the entire play. It was easily the most horrific thing I've ever seen in my life. I keep seeing it over and over in slow motion and it still makes me sick.
All that said, it was a clean football play and I pray that Eric Gordon is not feeling any guilt. He does not deserve any of the criticism he has gotten. Marcus looks like he is going to be okay. The bones did not break apparently. The knee dislocated and the ligaments were all damaged, but he should be able to return, though it may take as much as 18 months for him to be able to play again.

When I first heard that it wasn't quite as bad as initially thought, it was easily the best news I had all day. Gonna keep praying for a full recovery.
Hope he has a speedy recovery and everyone takes notice of the sportsmanship displayed. Really makes you forget about the wins and losses when something like that happens. Appreciate your post and wish y'all the best.
