I saw this today and was amazed that this game did in fact sell out. Again this just reiterates how excited our fanbase is about this year's chance at something real big.
Most Thursday night games are rowdy crowds, but still not sold out due to a weekday game. See the Ole Miss game 4 years ago when they were I believe #4, Auburn game in 2006 that and the Kentucky game in 2007 where Norwood toasted in the middle of his interview with Erin Andrews.
We also played NC State on a Thursday night opener (2008) and none of these games have sold out. UNC I do not believe to be as much of a traveling fanbase as the other schools previously mentioned.
Therefore my conclusion is many, many Gamecock fans will be out loud and proud and ready to get some revenge for the exit our baseball team was given this year due to the boys in baby blue.
I still expect to see a few empty seats in the East uppers due to scalpers not unloading everything but this should be out best turnout ever for a Thursday night game!!
Been totally psyched out and ready for this game (trouble sleeping like everyone else) but now I am psyched even more LOL!!
