Darius Rucker is not a new fan of the South Carolina Gamecocks. In fact, he has been enduring the highs and lows that come along with being a fan of the SEC school for the better part of 40 years as he states in the video below.

That means a lot of heartache, a lot of magic runs coming up short, and never a trip to the Final Four. Nothing even close to that. Now, with Frank Martin taking the program to Glendale, the team finds itself two wins away from arguably the most prestigious award in college sports. 

What a wild ride.

Darius Rucker joined The Dan Patrick Show and explained how this emotional run has cemented his loyalty to the Gamecocks. Listen and watch below.
