There are few bigger South Carolina fans anywhere than former Hootie and the Blowfish frontman Darius Rucker. From Charleston, South Carolina, Rucker has long been a regular at Gamecock sporting events over the years, and he certainly wasn’t about to miss his team’s Elite Eight matchup against Florida in Madison Square Garden.
After the game, Rucker had made his way down to the floor to witness the team’s celebration up close when he was grabbed for an interview by Scott Eisberg, the sports director for Charleston TV station WCIV. Naturally, Rucker was completely thrilled about the Gamecocks’ win, and he was even a little bit emotional about how far the team had come:
