03:04 PM ET 11.01 | A Columbia antique store shares a photograph of a smiling Marcus Lattimore with a heavy brace on his knee, along with a note that the injured South Carolina star, "wants everyone to know that he has received so many of your cards, letters and other messages and appreciates them greatly." Since his season-ending knee injury last week, Lattmore's seen an outpouring of goodwill from fans and rivals alike.

1. Allegedly

2. But they cheated

3. Bama math only goes to 20 because they run out of fingers and toes, so I KNOW you're lying at 23

Suffered injury to knee against UTK. Bad. 4 ligaments. Rehab an open question. Cannot assess future ability to play at this time.

Uhh, can I get a review on that call? My smart aleck remark got 2 other posters to respond with positive enjoyment indicated, therefore the incidental political content ruling should be waived.

Consider it similar to a pass interference call waived due to the pass not being catchable.

Not a South Carolina fan, but I always enjoyed watching Marcus Lattimore play. Hope he makes a full recovery. He is an outstanding young man according to everyone who has the pleasure of knowing him.

Please excuse the NFL replacement refs. They had to go somewhere.

Good to see him smile. Worst injury I have seen since LT vs. Joe Thiesman.

Lattimore is a very good player and I wish the best for him, but the South Carolina team is "Overrated"!!!
