There’s a lot that goes into a Thanksgiving meal. Although it might differ from family to family, it’s still one of the most important parts of the day.
“Obviously, a good turkey,” Rattler said. “You need some good stuffing. I like the cranberry, mac ‘n’ cheese. You can’t go wrong with any of it. You need all of it.”
A lot has happened to Rattler since last Thanksgiving. He left Oklahoma via the transfer portal and headed to South Carolina, where he led the Gamecocks to a top-five upset of Tennessee last week. It’s been quite a journey.
That’s why he has plenty to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
“My family, the situation I’m in right now,” Rattler said. “My parents, my sister, my loved ones and, obviously, my team and everybody that’s just in my circle. Very blessed.”
Spencer Rattler explains why he was expecting a big day entering Tennessee game
Some nights, you just have it. But, from what Rattler said, he felt that performance coming in the week leading up to the game, as well as the night before.
Rattler spoke about the show he put on following the win over the Vols. He said practice this week and the way he felt Friday night before the game gave him all the confidence he could’ve needed.
“It was two days ago,” Rattler said. “This whole week of practice. I got to the hotel (Friday) night. I got to dinner and I was just like, ‘I can feel it. This is gonna be a huge, huge game.’ I talked to (Antwane Wells Jr.) that morning and I said, ‘I’m gonna throw you the ball like 15 times. Come up with a lot of them.’ And he came up with a lot of them. … It was crazy, man. I don’t know what else to say. It was amazing.”
