Not even tackling.

We, as the fans, have a right to be upset. WE fund this whole thing. Fans buy the tickets. Fans pay for the seat licenses. Fans buy the concessions. Fans buy the team apparel. Fans donate to the Gamecock Club. Without the fans, this whole thing goes away. No fancy weight room. No practice facilities. None of it.

When WE invest our hard-earned money in the program we have every right to demand and expect a good product. The schools are the ones that have made college football a business and treat the fans like nothing but consumers.

So you're darn right we as the consumers of this product have every single doggone right to be upset when our investment goes unrewarded. Is it fine to lose. Sure, all teams do. Is it fine to look totally uncoached and unprepared? Absolutely not.
I second this emotion.
