Re: When you hear someone say "Carolina" What School or Team do you think of?

My bet is that they would think if the Panthers. College sports aren't as big of a deal out west as they are here.

No.Car. Is more widely known as "Carolina" and more importantly, they started...

Re: Uniforms vs. UNC

We've never played UCLA.

Southern Cal played UCLA a few years back and the visiting team (I forget which was which) was penalized a time out. Apparently that was a more traditional uniform matchup...

Re: Uniforms vs. UNC

I've always thought it was weird that No.Car. only brands themselves as "Carolina" as opposed to "North Carolina." I get that it's their nickname and I'm not trying to get into the "who's the real...

Re: Gamecock Logos

Althon Sports has no love for the USC logo. As much as I like the Block-C I agree that it's too busy. My personal beef is that USC insists on using the black "C" on a black background, which looks...

Re: The Return of Black Magic?

To answer the OP, that was and is the name of the showcase. I think they started calling it that recently specifically as a throw back to honor the Black Magic season.

I think that if we started...

I live in Charlotte, and the vast majority of people understand me when I say USC. I almost never have to say "South Carolina" to be understood. I'm occasionally 'corrected' but I figure it's my job...

Re: 20 interesting South Carolina football facts

Part of the reason we were so bad is that as a university, Carolina wasn't well funded by the state during the early 1900s, especially compared to other colleges.

Re: The Decline Continues

Hey, we also have elite horse teams. I don't follow horsing but they seem to win titles every couple of years which means they out-horse the other horses a lot.

Re: USC/UNC Football Ticket Prices

Yeah it was $60. I bet this game will do fairly well. The ECU game was packed if it didn't sell out though their half of the stadium cleared out after Spurrier put Garcia in and he had a field day. I...

Re: Serious Question - What happens to Spurrier...

Thanks for the laugh. Our season won't be that bad, but your hypothetical scenario is intriguing. This season will be tough, but I hope we aren't looking ahead to 2016 already.

My thought is the...

Re: **USC vs. Winthrop GAME Thread**

I see your point, and generally agree with it (except I wouldn't call Coastal a 'lesser' school when it comes to baseball). Everyone gives us their best game since we are usually dominant. This is...

Re: 2015 Pre-Preseason Rankings: No. 9-18

Two thoughts:

1- I agree that #14 seems a little high. It will be interesting to see where the other pre-season polls place us.

2- Even though we all know there are a lot of unknowns with this...

Re: 2015 State of the Union: South Carolina

I agree 100% with this statement. The challenge, of course, is that a portion of Assembly parallels the RR tracks, which basically means nothing can be done with that side of the street. Also, I read...

Re: We're going to the NCAA Tournament this year

The win over Iowa State is huge for Carolina basketball. It's great to see our program finally get a big win over a quality opponent. I have to admit I was skeptical up until last night, but now I'm...

Re: Question about basketball facilities

No, the state sold them at auction. I bet there are still some out there if you want to own a section of 3 seats.

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...

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

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

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.
