Shane Beamer and the South Carolina Gamecocks are in the middle of their spring practice session, moving forward to their annual Garnet and Black spring game, which will take place under the lights on Saturday, April 15. The game will be part of “Great weekend of fighting cocks”, and will be preceded by a concert and charity 5K run, and will feature fireworks after the spring game.
Thanks to how Beamer and the Gamecocks finished last season (South Carolina eliminated No. 5 Tennessee and No. 8 Clemson in back-to-back weeks in November to close out the season), expectations are high for the team heading into 2023. Those two wins marked the first back-to-back wins over Top 10 opponents in show historymaking Beamer the first coach in school history to accomplish that feat.
Throw in the return of quarterback Spencer Rattler, who set a program record with six touchdown passes against Tennessee, and you have the makings of a potentially huge season for South Carolina.
Gamecocks fans hope that the work put in by the program over the spring lays the foundation for a great year in the fall. But it turns out that the team has been busy with other tasks off the pitch.
How to record this incredible parody of “The Office”:
With Beamer in the role of Michael Scott, the team put together a near-perfect parody of the cold at the beginning of a season five episode titled “The Duel.” That episode, season 12, begins like this:
An absolutely amazing job. Beamer steals the show in so many ways, from the “it was windy” to the emphatic “hit it” at the end.
And Gamecocks fans, take heart with this: If the show can pull this off in the spring, just imagine what they can do in the fall.
