Watching the Mississippi State versus L.S.U. game made me think of something. I only played at Starkville one time in my career. That one game was ugly though. We lost 26 to 0. From the getting off the plane in the middle of nowhere, to the strange smelling hotel, to the two hour drive to the stadium, it was, by far, the weirdest, toughest place to play in my opinion. (Fayetteville is second, but a distant second.)

Starkville is like a weird city set in an M. Night Shyamalan movie. I was constantly thinking I might see zombies with cowbells come around the corner saying they wanted to eat my brains. (Yes I know that M. Night doesn't write about Zombies, go back to your video games!)

Even the normal looking students have a glaze in their eye as they whack that bell that is bothersome. It's like they are going to whisper to you as you walk by, "I see dead players..." (Better M. Night reference, right?)

I think Gamecock fans should unite in their journey to Starkville by all buying vuvuzelas to blow at the game to drown out the cowbells. Announce our presence with authority!

The only thing that would be more annoying than going into their stadium and beating them would be to do it with vuvuzelas!

And if the vuvuzelas are too expensive (you can buy them here) then we can use the video below to make a homemade vuvuzela sound making device!

Wouldn't it be awesome?

But we have to agree to ONLY DO IT for this one game! No vuvuzelas allowed into Williams Brice!

From coach to comedian: Marty Simpson is a former USA Today high school All-American and collegiate Academic All-Conference player for USC who scored the Gamecocks' first 6 points in the SEC. During 8 years as a high school varsity coach, Simpson led his team to the state finals and saw one player advance to set an NFL rookie record. Simpson now divides his time between his family, running a multimedia company named Blue-Eyed Panda and getting the same pre-game jitters by performing stand-up comedy nationwide.
