Re: Gamecocks 1933 Conference Champs

I get the argument that Duke was probably the better team in 1933, but we were still undefeated in the SoCon that year, so IMO we should claim that title too. It's no different than Alabama claiming...

Re: What's going on "here"?

I didn't like the 'Here' campaign at first, but it's really grown on me. It's a very classy ad campaign, and it doesn't reek of the generic rowdy 'pump up' stuff that you typically see. The USC...

Re: Home winning streak.

When you have the best whatever in the nation, you brag about it. This is the type of thing that is more effective at establishing respect for us at the national level.

Re: Future Non-Conference Schedules

I wouldn't mind scheduling Duke in the next few years. They should be competitive as long as Cutcliffe is around.

Re: Future Non-Conference Schedules

The SEC is going to require all schools to schedule teams from the big 5 conferences, and if I recall correctly Tanner said that we would schedule a second team in addition to Clemson (ie: we played...

Re: SEC Recruiting Advantage

All things being equal it seems like being in the SEC helps us out a lot, at least nationally, when it comes to recruiting. That said, if conference affiliation was the only factor then we would not...

I think you can have a defacto rival that you never play, and this could become more common with the playoff system. One...

Re: Top 10 delusional fan bases in CFB - #10 USC fans


I can understand the argument for SoCal. Kiffen was a bad hire, and the new guy will probably right the ship.

But Notre Dame has not been consistently 'elite' since the mid 90's when Holtz...

Re: Top 10 delusional fan bases in CFB - #10 USC fans

I agree. People consider So.Cal and Notre Dame 'elite' and what have they done lately other than poop their pants?

On the topic of our 'elite' status - I was talking to my cousin's husband about...

Re: New Trophy with Texas A&M

What are some examples? S.Cal and Notre Dame are not 'natural' rivals. They are two historically good programs that decided to start playing each other.

I think the Carolina - A&M rivalry is...

Re: Most important game for UofSC in 2014?

My vote is for UofAuburn. The tigers of Alabama have always given USC trouble. In fact, I'm not sure we have more than one win over them. If that. Ever. We know Auburn will be good, and we know from...

Re: Neutral Site Game to Remain at Fluor Field through 2018

The Athletics Dept is apparently also looking at a Carolina - NoCar neutral site game at BB&T Ballpark here in Charlotte in 2016.

Re: SEC non-division opponents through 2025

Two thoughts:

Thanks for posting this. I had not seen the schedule either.
I hope the SEC either adds a 9th game conference at some point or removes the permanent rival. I think it's...

Re: Best / Worst Gamecock team With Steve Spurrier as the Head Coach

Wasn't that the LSU game where Garcia got tackled by the ref and likely cost us a TD?

Re: Why did we ever switch from garnet helmets??

The only thing I didn't like about the white helmet is that the uniform striping didn't match. As of last season, that issue has been mostly resolved. It's not perfect, but very good.

Re: Baseball Reflection & Outlook

This is Clemson logic.

The other x-factor here is that Maryland wanted it more. This season was the first time they had even one a tournament game since 1970. I think we just had a rough day, and...
