    Southern Belles Keep It Classy On Game Day in South Carolina


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Byron Thomas loves his classy University of South Carolina girls on game day. His own game day style is one that lets the girls have the spotlight. "I dress in either a Gamecock polo or tee-shirt. I usually dress in blue jeans. I’m a broke conservative college student that can’t afford to dry clean my game day attire every week. But as America’s #1 southern gentleman, I let the classy Carolina ladies attract all the attention and spotlight," he said.

    My name is Byron Thomas and I’m a student at the cockiest and classiest university in America, the University of South Carolina (we’re the Real USC)! At our football games, it’s truly all about our gorgeous Carolina southern belles.


    So remember these words, “Ain’t nothing like a Carolina Girl!”


    Now at USC our girls go “Southern Belle Mode.” What is “Southern Belle Mode” you ask? Well, it’s when a girl wears these 3 things:


    1. Pearls (whether it’s a pearl necklace or earrings. The pearls are always classy)
    2. Cowgirl boots (and you’ll see a lot of girls walking home barefoot because the cowgirl boots hurt their feet from all the standing and jumping)
    3. Classy sundress: either garnet or black (we don’t do trashy here at USC and girls are known for saying “Bless your heart” to the girls that don’t dress classy)


    Sometimes girls will wear sandals or wedges, a Carolina jersey or t-shirt. But it’s not encouraged. Daisy dukes are definitely a no-no. Don’t forget your shades, because the sun loves to brightly shine down on our lovely Carolina ladies.


    Remember what I said earlier, “Ain’t nothing like a Carolina Girl!”


    Our girls are gorgeous every Saturday. They're also sweeter than sweet tea but not sweet enough to give you diabetes. I believe we have the best tradition in the south when it comes to how our girls dress. It’s not a sorority thing at USC either. Doesn’t matter what color you are or where you’re from. Every girl knows what’s expected to be worn on Game day.


    As a guy, I must say that we’re not as consistent with our attire as other guys from SEC universities. But as a southern gentleman I must say, we allow our ladies to take the spotlight.


    BBQ, Sweet Tea, Carolina Football, and Southern Belles = Game day in classy South Carolina


    Our classy Carolina girls will always be #1. So hold up Ole Miss, Tennessee, Georgia, and the rest of the SEC; come take a look at our Classy Carolina book! No other SEC university does it like USC!


    Hope you’ll always remember, “Ain’t Nothing like a Carolina Girl!”


    Overwhelm People with Love and May God Bless the United States of America


    Go Gamecocks!!!
