The South Carolina Gamecocks have looked really good this year. Really, really good. After winning their Week 1 showdown versus Vanderbilt in admittedly underwhelming fashion, Steve Spurrier and Co. have come back strong – clearly looking to make a statement against pretty much every opponent they have faced since then.
This week, South Carolina will take on the LSU Tigers. Because it’s a special match-up, and because a win would put the Gamecocks in great position to contend for a BCS National Championship Game berth (although they’ll still have Florida the week after that), the powers that be have decided to trot out nifty “battle uniforms."

Is the new gear nice? Sure. Is it necessary? Nope. Why jinx a squad that’s been on fire (aside from parts of the Kentucky game) ever since Week 1? It is what it is, though. We'll see what happens.
