Pick a Game/Name a Trophy
Since we are now fabricating rivalries and augmenting their relevance with trophies, I think the fans should have a voice. We can't leave it all up to our politicians, mayors and governors to solely shoulder the load and cultivate the fans' engagement with the games.
Therefore, let us take the initiative to go ahead and name some games/matchups with corresponding trophies that we/the fans want.
SC vs tennessee - The Rocky Cock
A Gamecock on top of a rocky mountain in copper.
SC vs unc - The Carolina Classic (wanted Carolina Cup, but people would confuse it with the race.)
Bronze outline of the SC/NC geography (like a map). Winners fans also get 10% off of every order from Bojangles until the next meeting.
SC vs Oregon State - The On Top Trophy
You know damn well what I mean.
SC vs ecu - The Flagship
A crystal 18th century ship. USC is the flagship school of SC and ecu are the pirates. Plus we play them more regularly than the other NC schools who are in hiding.
What else you got?
