Gamecocks in the Elite Eight!...?

Didn't think I'd ever live to see a day when the men's Gamecocks basketball team would make it this deep, beating a second ranked Duke and crushing Baylor. Do they have a legitimate shot at winning the whole thing.
Also, pretty happy to see the team break so many people's brackets.

Finally I can quit listening to people tell me UK doesnt play anyone and the SEC is awful. I am a big UK fan but I was happy to see SC and UF make it to the elite 8.

Gamecocks only SEC team in the final four now. Only the most delusional fans would have predicted this.

I'm a huge gamecocks fan(live in Charleston SC) and I can tell you with absolute certainty, no gamecocks fans expected this. Wasn't a big shock to see them make it into the tourney finally but to see them advance this far has been crazy. We expect this sort of thing from our women's team, who's been elite for a few years now, but not the mens.

I went to school at USC and suffered through some bad mens basketball (end of Dave Odom, most of Darrin Horn's career). I was surprised we got into the tournament considering how the season ended. But I cant say Im surprised they made a deep run. The team played this brand of defense early in the regular season when they punked Syracuse and Michigan.

Something else worth noting, 5 years ago today Carolina hired Frank Martin.

Both mens and womens teams for the gamecocks are in the final four. Could be the 2nd program to win both titles in the same year.

What was the first program? I keep thinking it was Syracuse but I might be wrong.
