The sports world has to be one of the most unforgiving work environments in the world. Facing a possible layoff, coach Butch Jones doesn’t need this kind of reminder.

The Gamecocks fans didn’t reveal the shirts until the fourth quarter, while they were leading 12-9 as time ticked off the clock. They were almost forced to eat their words (or their shirts), as the Volunteers drove down the field as time expired.
