Re: Why has it taken over 20 years

In the context of this thread - the football program over the past 20 years - I think McGee has to be a part of the discussion. The whole for/against Hyman thing is really a separate discussion since...

Re: Why has it taken over 20 years

Thanks for your detailed response. That's not remotely the same thing, nor is it the point I'm trying to make. My point is that if the 'perception' issue is truly an issue for players looking at...

Re: Why has it taken over 20 years

You have a lot of good points, but at the end of the day I think it has less to do with a 'perception' than you suggest. Mississippi and Alabama are way more backwards and redneck as states than...

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

Yeah it really isn't fair that we have a home-like advantage in 45 of 46 counties in SC.

Re: Our Road Upset Wins

It was at the time, and that's all that counts.


Tahj, Sammy and the vaunted Clemson defense were supposed to be unstoppable.



Florida in 2010 is probably the biggest in recent years since...

Re: Out of the top 25

Clemson looks beatable this year, but not easily. I think they pull another Clemson or two this year and stay ranked around #20. I think if we beat UK convincingly then we will be ranked again.

Re: why we're in this position with our d, & why we'll be in it again offensely in 15

Why is this discussion on the offense? If our secondary and special teams were any good then we wouldn't be relying solely on the offense to keep us in games. Thompson is doing just fine as QB. He...

Re: What if A&M is just really that good?

They have had a better record on the road then at home. I'm not sure what that says about the "12th man" but that's a really hard feat to accomplish in the SEC. I hope that they are just that good,...

Re: Gamecock football Long Term Future and the SEC

I see what you're saying, but I don't see that as being an issue. Would it be nice? Yes. But people seem to make it to Five Points and the Vista anyway. I think that unless a significant, full time...

Re: The Top 10 Things I like about USC

This isn't accurate. Southern Cal and North Carolina were nationally relevant athletic programs in the 50s-60s when college sports really started to take off nationally. The media called them by...

Re: Gamecock football Long Term Future and the SEC

I'm interested to know how people would propose to "connect" the campus to the stadium. It's literally a mile away.

Columbia and SCDOT are looking at grade separating the tracks on Assembly St....

Re: Under Armour Staff Polos

I like the quality and the design of UA products, but my issue is the fit. They only make "loose" fit clothing - or maybe G&BT only orders then that way? If I could find a "regular" fit UA t-shirt I...

Re: Next installment of USC vs UNC is 9/3/2015

A lot has changed in the past year in Charlotte's Third Ward. The new uptown baseball stadium is amazing (future Carolina - UNC baseball game site) and Romare Bearden Park is basically Charlottes new...

Re: Next installment of USC vs UNC is 9/3/2015

I see your point, but I feel like the match up will draw out more fans than ECU did (on both sides).

Re: Next installment of USC vs UNC is 9/3/2015

This is the same conversation that comes up every time we play North Carolina. Charlotte has the largest Carolina alumni base outside of South Carolina. The Carolina - UNC match up is an old rivalry...

Re: Gamecock football Long Term Future and the SEC

This has been a really good thread so far. Kudos to everyone for the good discussion and insight/opinions.

Re: Which is a worse loss to open the season?

Technically it's still possible to have a 14-1 season. Technically.

Re: Predict the Season (After Game 1)

I trust Spurrier to right the ship, but I think that we won't have the kinks worked out before we play UGA. I'm saying 8-4. 9-3 If Florida ends up having a bad season again. The plus side of a season...

Re: So, Dylan Thompson?

I think Thompson did the best he could do given what he was up against. That dumpster fire of a game was a team-wide loss. He obviously struggles under pressure, making errant throws or bad decisions...

Re: 2007 Reflection: Under Armour and Nike

It came down to the fact that UA offered to pay us the most money. I'm not sure if Nike was even an option at the time. I feel like I remember that UA was the only one that made a compelling offer,...

Don't be ridiculous. The Pope would have to play college ball first. I imagine he still has 4 years of eligibility left, and I'm assuming ND would take him, so if he gets lucky in the draft the...

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.
