Re: Why has there been 40 years of failure?

I am 62. And I don't think everything can be solved with a lawsuit. Sometimes, other methods must be employed. In fact, I have recently learned that going to court is probably not the best way to...

Re: Why has there been 40 years of failure?

Stand up? Come on. The ACC wanted USC to leave. Did USC fight for itself? No. Did USC demand to be treated fairly? Well, not much. They may have objected, but they wouldn't do more than that. ...

Re: Why has there been 40 years of failure?

No courage or imagination. But they would have also had to value ACC membership in order to choose to fight for USC and not run. That was probably a factor in their choosing to run away. ...

Re: Why has there been 40 years of failure?

The people at USC who made the decision to leave the ACC were cowards and stupid. They lacked the courage and imagination to find answers to the problems they faced, and those answers were...

Re: Why has there been 40 years of failure?

I began following USC in 1968. I believe that there were solutions to the things you see as a problem other than leaving the ACC. Any school that is afraid to stand up to UNC, or anyone else, is A...

Re: Why has there been 40 years of failure?

Since all of the other teams at USC seem to be doing nicely, it looks like the main reason the men's basketball team has been so bad for so long is mainly the result of hiring bad coaches. I think...

Re: Why has there been 40 years of failure?

Since I care FAR more about basketball than I do about football, it would not bother me if neither one of those guys was ever the USC football coach. I would never have left the ACC so that I might...

Re: Why has there been 40 years of failure?

What conference would those schools prefer to be in? Well, except for Louisville, all of those schools are in the same conference they were in in 1960. During that same period of time, USC has been...

Re: Why has there been 40 years of failure?

I could not disagree with you more. Leaving the ACC was the single worst decision in the history of the University of South Carolina. Incredibly stupid decision that destroyed the basketball...

Re: Why has there been 40 years of failure?

Probably as a result of so many frustrating years hoping USC basketball will be consistently good, only to have my hopes dashed, I over reacted to the recent losses in the Charleston tournament. ...

Re: Why has there been 40 years of failure?

That excuse might work in Horn's case, but it has less validity with Martin. Underwood was here when we recruited Carrera, Kacinas, Chatkevicius, and Johnson. Not exactly a banner group. I know...

Re: Why has there been 40 years of failure?

You make some good points. But I think it goes back even further. Getting out of the ACC was the first HUGE mistake made by USC, and that mistake has been followed by a succession of mistakes, some...

Re: Why has there been 40 years of failure?

OK. Fogler had 2 good years. Odom won the NIT twice. That is 4 years in the last 40 that have been somewhat successful. Why have the other 36 years been so bad? And why couldn't the 4...

Why has there been 40 years of failure?

The USC football program has had some success under Spurrier. The baseball team has won 2 national titles and is considered one of the best programs in college baseball. Dawn Staley has built the...

Re: 2014 Charleston Classic: **USC vs. Akron GAME Thread**

There is plenty of time for improvement. Unfortunately, with every loss, the prospects of getting into a post-season tournament becomes less likely. And, they have not lost to Kentucky, or some...

Re: What Are Your Win/Loss Expectations for 2014-2015 Men's Basketball Season?

Last season we were 14-20 (41%), the season before that, we were 14-18 (44%), right now we are 2-3 (40%). All looks very similar, doesn't it?

Re: 2014 Charleston Classic: **USC vs. Akron GAME Thread**

I hope that is the last time we play in that tournament for a long time. We have not done well there, and I would rather not go back.

Re: 2014 Charleston Classic: **USC vs. Akron GAME Thread**

Interesting how Akron has players who were rated less than ours coming out of high school, yet out perform our guys.

Re: 2014 Charleston Classic: **USC vs. Akron GAME Thread**

We were outscored 22 to 11 on FT. Very hard to win when that happens.

Re: 2014 Charleston Classic: **USC vs. Akron GAME Thread**

All right. I can almost agree with that. Unfortunately, this team is low on players who have both the athleticism and the basketball skills for this to be a very good team. Winning half their...

Re: 2014 Charleston Classic: **USC vs. Akron GAME Thread**

I understand that this team can improve. I also understand they might not. There is a lack of skill on this team that may, or may not improve. They play 32 games, including the first game in the...

Re: 2014 Charleston Classic: **USC vs. Akron GAME Thread**

Simply unacceptable. I won't accept this. The chances of a postseason tournament are quickly disappearing. A losing record is a definite possibility. If that happens, I will ignore USC...

If they don't play better than they have so far, they won't get to 10.

Notice, not Stroman. Stroman is the one who passes to people who aren't there.
