Darius Rucker shed happy tears Sunday afternoon (March 26) when the University of South Carolina Gamecocks — Rucker’s alma mater— upset the No. 4 seeded Florida Gators in the NCAA Tournament at Madison Square Garden.
The colorful coach of third-ranked South Carolina light-heartedly brushed aside questions about Tiger Stadium this week by pretending to be momentarily confused about the fact there are two Death Valleys, one at LSU and one at Clemson.
The Gamecocks (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) have used their "rabbit defense" that employs four defensive ends to cause havoc for opponents. It's not every play, but with ultra-quick ends like Jadeveon Clowney and Devin Taylor, it doesn't have to be.
