He's been in and out of jail his whole life and hasn't stopped gamecocking. I heard he is opening up a bar that will likely be run into the ground because of his poor business degree.

the act of seemingly putting a game out of reach, celebrating inappropriately like you won the conference, then imploding miserably in the last quarter such that the other team has a season defining comeback win.
Hey Bob, did Oklahoma win that game last night? We had to leave the party early. No, they lost at the end again. Just a lot of Gamecocking this season, damn it!

To think that you actually excel in a particular area, like college football, just to come to the realization you will always be second rate. No matter how many times you beat Clemson.

A term widely used throughout college football fans where a team within a conference becomes childlike and cheers for their conference success as if it was their own team's win or success. This is especially true of the lesser teams within that conference that do not have a winning pedigree or any titles or championships within that conference.
Boy, Fred sure is pulling a gamecock (Gamecocking)again simply because his team's dismal woes (3-9 on season) were wished away because the conference champion of which his team belongs just had a player win a National Football award. An example of this type of childish fandom would be a team from the same conference having a player win the Heisman trophy, and Fred celebrating like he just watched his team (not involved in the Heisman race) win the national title.
