Default To any players reading the board

Look, I know some of you guys read this board. Based on that, you must think we're the most unhinged fanbase in all of sports.

Usually this board is home to some pretty level-headed fans, but after last week's loss to ATM it's become pretty much unglued. That's largely due to 1) unrealistic expectations, and 2) sub-par play on your part.

So I could certainly understand if you start reading some of the stuff on here and get a little upset. Even though there are board rules against it, there's been a fair amount of bashing going on and truth be told I vented a bit myself.

The thing that I want you to keep in mind is that this board is pretty much an outlet for many of us, so it's to be expected that you're going to see a mental dump or two every now and then. Also, this board represents probably about 2% of the Gamecock fanbase. At games when I ask someone if they post on CockyTalk I usually get a "huh?"

So there's that.

Regardless of what's been said, please understand we're all still behind you, we know you're working hard to get stuff fixed, and we'll all be out cheering loudly come Saturday.

Now go beat the hell out of ECU.

Ours read TexAgs. Even Manziel has a username, though no one knows what is. Our former president, Robert Gates, used to read and post on there all the time. He posted a few times as SecDef too. You might be surprised who reads your boards.

Yea? Well, Roger Rabbit has a profile on here. He don't be posting much dough. But when he do, he speak hard truths. That's word

EXACTLY! They actually affect the outcomes of the game and could give 2 sh!ts what some Tuesday morning QB's on a message board think.

Win and SOS is a genius

Lose and we don't get good enough recruits.

^^^AGREE!

I personally do not think any current and active players waste time on these boards either.
Everytime they are asked about anything said in papers, on TV, etc, they always reply they don't pay that any attention. So, it's hard for me to believe that they come to cockytalk to get all the right facts. LOL whatever...

I also know the coaching staff stresses the importance of staying off and away of social media and related websites, especially during the season. (this includes message boards)

And I'll add this......if an active player is spending time on here, reading and believing anything they see on here or taking it serious and to heart........then they don't deserve to be playing major collegiate D1A ball in the SEC anyway.

Hats??? No, where is the t-shirt guy when you need him. I saw him selling these at the A&M game. They were $25 before the game, $5 after the game.

IMO - I'm a member of CockyTalk because I want to get REAL insight and info on USC athletics. Not just the glossed over version that you get from the local print, radio & TV personalities that don't want to report the ugly truth of the matter. I get that--their jobs depend on the relationships they form with the coaches & those within the Athl Dept.

That being said, our CockyTalk community is a great place to discuss the good & bad about the football team's performance vs A&M (in this case). Most of us bring something of value to the discussion...from those who just love college football, to former college athletes, those whom have ties to USC players, coaches and administrators...even those who may know future Gamecock recruits.

Point being - bring something to this board of value...not just dumpster fire material like 'fire Ward now'...even in the vent threads. We're all equally ticked-off over the way we played...though we're not all equally innebriated when we post after a loss.

Some players will read the message boards, some won't. Those that do want to know what the fans perception of themselves or the team is.

So while I may say that RG position may have blocked poorly or the KR position is not being elusive enough to get the ball out past the 20yd line...I'll never drag an athletes name into any negative comments I might post. I wouldn't want to read negative comments that singled out my child's name. Just think that is crossing the line as a fan.

Apologize for rambling, just something I think just needed to be said...hey, we've got 11 more games to go and A LOT left to play for.

GO COCKS!!

So, saying Shon Carson is not being elusive enough to get the ball out past the 20yd line is more derogatory than KR position is not being elusive enough to get the ball out past the 20yd line?

I agree with everything else you wrote, but using a position that a player starts at versus a player's name does not absolve you from still being respectful and responsible.

Totally get your point.

It's a personal preference. I wouldn't want Shon Carson's mom or family member reading anything negative posted by myself that singles out a particular player by name.

Hey, I try live by the golden rule (not always successful at it), treat others as you would like to be treated. Whether I speak it out loud or type it on a message board makes no difference.

GO COCKS!!
