Nowadays, high schools in the upstate are playing lacrosse. Many football players are involved in lacrosse in the spring. It most certainly is not a wealthy person's game.

Yeah, you're way off base.

If you look at the schools in the Midlands that are playing Lacrosse I think you'll find it is coming from the rich lake community(mostly white) schools like Chapin, White Knoll, Lexington, and not places like Dreher, Columbia, Keenan, or Eau Claire.

Even in South Carolina, Lacrosse is a sport for those with a little more money. It's mostly played by white kids. I wouldn't say its wine and cheese, but it is definitely an upper middle class sport around here.

Blow up the State Newspaper building and build a huge statue of Spurrier playing golf there.

I agree. Although its nothing like polo, the cost to just enter into lacrosse is quite hefty. You're talking shafts, heads, gear, whatever. Its not something like football or basketball where the majority of the gear is cheap or given to you to use by the local athletic departments. For the most part, it is an upper middle class sport.

Default Re: Tanner and the next master plan!

Sorry to contribute to the thread hijacking (Tanner > LAX), but, like the sport or not (frankly, I'm not all about it), an even mediocre LAX program here will likely attract more players/students out-of-state, thus paying out-of-state tuition. Moreover, even if not a lot of scholarships could be offered for the program, walk-ons, again, would more likely be out-of-staters than in-state players. Also, I can't imagine a LAX program is that expensive to keep up. The exposure to USC athletics generally also spreads.

Seems to me there's a lot to gain from having a good varsity-level LAX program.

On that same note, does USC have a varsity rowing team? Or is it only club-level? Same thought process as LAX would apply.

1. a new Williams Brice Stadium exterior and apron

2. a new outdoor track facility and stadium - ours right now is woefully inadequate!

3. An indoor track facility

4. Gamecock park, part two, three, four. ect. - I believe the university should attempt to buy as much property around Williams Brice as possible and convert the space into parking areas just like they did to the old farmers market property. i would love to see them start by buying all the land between Idlewilde, Market, Key and Bluff. with side walks, lamp posts, brick walls and iron gates. if we want people to perceive our stadium as a top notch facility, the image of an industrial wasteland must be addressed

5. More luxury suites at Carolina stadium down the first base line - i know our baseball stadium rocks but we should already be planning on how to make it better for the future

6. purchase all the property between Williams, Wheat, Catawba, and Huger so we can lose the scenic view of metal warehouses down the first base line! (more) http://www.gamecockfanatics.com/
Hey FeatheredCock, thanks for posting my post from jan. 11 from a rival website without giving me credit....................nice!

I think they mean the exterior portion of the property. I thought that area was supposed to be fenced in and landscaped.

I think this would be something that could catch on. The Inferno did decent in Columbia and a Gamecock Hockey team could bring in some new fans to USC that have moved from other areas.

Unfortunately, I don't think many teams in the South play NCAA level hockey. We do have a club team though.

Default Re: Tanner and the next master plan!

So this is what I found:

Quote:
Over the next couple of years, Hyman's master plan includes converting the Farmer's Market into a football parking lot and tailgate area for the fans, further improvements to Williams-Brice Stadium, building a coaches' support building, a parking garage and tennis courts, and renovating the softball and track facilities at the new Athletics Village, whose cornerstone building is the new Dodie Anderson Academic Enrichment Center.
http://www.gamecocksonline.com/genrel/hyman_eric00.html

So it sounds like finishing out the current "master plan" (why do I picture Dr. Evil when someone says this?) will include all you guys are talking about with the track needs, as well as continued improvements to the stadium. What I do NOT see is a plan for an indoor practice facility. Now some have mentioned this is already in the works, but does anyone have any real details on it?

What doesn't piss you off? In all honesty,what do you ever say positive about the program or whats going on?

So instead of saying "it's things like this that piss me off," I think a more accurate statement (at least from what you post on this message board) would be "Whatever SC's coaches and admin do pisses me off."

Ok, concerning the indoor practice facility, all I can find is that the school was putting out ads about building the project. Does anyone actually know any updates on who has the project, projected completion, etc?
