I will also say this:

Over the course of the game I saw three fans being ejected from section 305 for being argumentative, aggressive assholes.

They were not wearing Garnet.

Lets not teach our kids to throw things at the other team during pop warner or little league games, it is not OK, no matter how bad you want to win the game or mad you get! I have said many times say what you want, yell what you want but when you put your hands or touch me the line has been crossed so I do unto others as I would want them done to me as all should! Show some class you are a GAMECOCK and what others do should have no impact on what you do otherwise you are just a follower of them!
1 - Well, when things escalate that high, we will see when the Law decides to turn up and do something. That's absurd. You're comparing pushing and shoving, and throwing of bottles by a SMALL PERCENTAGE of fans, to smoking crack and murder...

2 - You're barking up the wrong tree. 99% of people that post on CockyTalk, when they're posting, are sober. The people causing the problems in the stands are generally not. If you really want to make a difference:

A) Run around before the game in the popular tailgating areas teaching/warning people about what a "Classy" Gamecock is.

or

B) Write a letter to the event management team at USC/USC Police/Columbia Police about it and see if they will up their security in certain sections, or throughout the stadium.

Stop acting like people are dying in the stands. Are things happening that shouldn't? Yes. Is it wrong? Yes. Would I be pissed if these things happened to by daughter, son, or me? Yes I would. But you've got to realize that this world does not revolve around you. No offense...

If you think this is a society problem then You need to go check your history...and you are 100% wrong.

Fan behavior has gotten remarkably better over say the last 50+ years. If you think going to the Carolina/Clemson game was some sort of garden party in the past...well you are sadly mistaken.

I'll reference the 1961 "Prank" game specifically. Newspaper articles at the time mention how many fights there were in the stands and how this was considered regular behavior for the the rivalry game. Not to mention the fight that broke out on the field while the prank was going on. The game had to be delayed 30 minutes b/c of the pre-game fighting...yet that part barley gets a mention in the papers compared to the fights that took place after kickoff.

At The post WW2 Big Thursday games the band had to play the national anthem multiple times at halftime b/c it was the only way to get the mass fights to stop; as the men were conditioned to stop and salute the flag when the anthem was played.

The world wasn't all teddy bears and rainbows in the past. And a couple of plastic bottle thrown at the opposing team is child's play compared how fans behaved in the "good ole days"

Read your history people...you might learn something.

You aren't endearing yourself to anyone.

You assume that other people like me who work just as hard, maybe even harder than you aren't working hard enough because we cant afford to go to the games.


Just stop. You are making yourself sound even worse.

I didn't say that at all. I was speaking of myself only. I work hard. Make money and earn the privilege to buy season tickets and support my Univeristy and it's athletics.

I think the athletic department and all of our athletes will agree when I say: they appreciate my kind of support far more than 12,000 posts on a fan board and the occasional purchase of a t-shirt from Garnet and Black traditions.

Saying you support something and actually having skin in the game are two totally different things. (Reminds me of people that say "I support our troops." How? Err, I put a sticker on the back of my car that says "I support our troops.")

And my guess is that those football players that represent the University of South Carolina appreciate all of those students that made it a hornets nest of an atmosphere Saturday night a heck of a lot more than the folks that blindly criticize those same students for "classless" behavior.

Read your history people...you might learn something.
thats not what the older people tell us though, they tell us kids these days are the worst, that nobody did this back in the day...of course then they go into detail about the fight with Maryland and the prank as if its a war story. Listen bottles were thrown, get over it. boohoo to dabo, and boo hoo to you "i am classier than thou" fans. I was sitting on the other side, but guess what we also chanted "F U Clemson" multiple times, threw up birds during entrance and exit, yelled "F Clemson" after go fight win kickass, called Dabo bad things, Boyd bad things, and it is the same stuff that has gone on for my whole career with Florida. and honestly since i have been going to games our students have done this. So make up your minds do you want us to be quiet, leave early, or stay the whole time *and 45 minutes after in yesterdays case* and be loud and hostile like a real SEC Powerhouse, or....not. if you say not, then please dont be proud of the prank, or lefty getting knocked out.

Did anyone mention the little march they did arm in arm into the endzone/student section before the game? I guess that wasn't meant to piss anyone off. One awesome moment from section 504 was when the team went up by two scores and a guy stood at the top of the stairs for 5-10 minutes signaling all the upper deck urange to get on out. And they abided.

I thought this was gonna be a thread talking about how awesome our fans were Saturday, and thanking them for helping make our home field advantage one of the best in the nation!


Not this junk.... it's football people, if you don't want any of this to happen then don't let anybody under 25 into college and ban alcohol at all sporting events. Otherwise, take your complaining somewhere else... like tigernet

This really takes some of the fun out of it. I was hoping it wasn't true....admittedly I didn't see it, and therefore was hoping it didn't happen. However, in my opinion, there is no room for this.

On the other hand....anyone that thinks crap like this doesn't happen at Clemson is sadly mistaken. I was flipped off by a 4 year old within 5 minutes of getting out of my car the first time I went to a game up there. Knew right then I wasn't at a church service like they would have you believe.

Precisely. There is no room for this. It reflects badly on the ENTIRE fan base. I don't give a damn if it happens at other places (I had my car vandalized at a Clemson baseball-yes baseball-game). Just because it happens other places doesn't give us the right to do it too. We are, and should remain, above this kind of behavior. This is the kind of shenanigans that Ray does not look kindly on.
