South Carolina took some souvenirs after the team’s historic upset of UGA.
Numerous Gamecock players did some “property destruction” in the aftermath of the unranked team’s stunning 20-17 decision against the No. 3-ranked Bulldogs:
They grabbed parts of UGA’s sacred hedges, and paraded with the souvenirs to the locker room.
Obviously, that’s not going to go over well with UGA fans and the school’s football team.
Past “property destruction” to the hallowed hedges upset Bulldogs athletics director Greg McGarity so much that he reached an agreement with archrival Georgia Tech for it not to happen again. UGA also agreed to not rip up Tech’s turf in retaliation for the Yellow Jackets damaging the hedges in past years.
“That tradition will cease,” McGarity said last November.
Apparently, South Carolina and UGA didn’t reach a similar agreement before Saturday’s game.
Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp knows all about the sanctity of the hedges, as he played football at UGA in the early 1990s.
But even Muschamp had a souvenir in his hand (see below picture).
