I am a University of South Carolina graduate and lifelong fan, and it brought tears to my eyes to see the compassion, kindness and hospitality that LSU extended to my beloved Gamecocks.

LSU is a total class act, and the university and its fans have exemplified what sportsmanship while competing at the highest level means. I cannot thank you Tigers enough for all you have done for our terribly battered and bruised community, and I hope you go on to win the national championship!

I will be a Gamecock and proudly so forever, but I will forever be an LSU fan from now on, too. And if my Gamecocks cannot win it all, I will cheer as loudly for the Tigers (from the REAL Death Valley) as any of you will. Next round is on me.
