They did a little taunting, but nothing over the top. It may have had more to do with Dabo jawing with the refs about the blatant grounding call every play after it happened an as he ran off the field at the half. I still can't see his argument on that one. He was just being a little bitch.

I know. I was simply saying that they didn't help themselves by doing that. All they did was piss the students off.

Unfortunate, due to my work schedule and other financial issue, only make 1-2 games a year if I am lucky, and I have to choose carefully when I go. I cannot afford 300+ dollars for a Carolina/Clemson ticket.

I cheer my heart out at home or at the bar or wherever I am.. If that makes me less of a fan, well I guess there is nothing I can do about that.
Yes, Gal. I contributed to the GC Club and held season tix for 18 seasons. I saw a lot of bad football over those years. I was right there for "0-21."

Last game I attended in person was the win over Bama in 2010. I think I'll leave it at that.

You can absolutely pull for the Gamecocks from your couch. Keep it up.

To those who think it's wrong for students to throw plastic bottles at tiger players, learn to hate those bitches. We own them.

Throwing bottles at the Clemson team is equivalent to throwing bottles at a circus tiger who just sits in a cage with a dejected look on its face. It's animal abuse.

I've missed 4 games in the last 30 years so maybe you will respect my opinion, not sure. Any graduate, student or fan of the University, whether they are at a football game or not, has a right to be critical of behavior that reflects poorly on that University.

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.
As a former part of the Gamecock football program, we appreciate every fan out there, and we'd much rather be around the "average" fan than a pompous ass such as yourself.

Reading into your previous posts, however, you will probably take pompous ass as a compliment as well.

I live in a different state. I've never been to a game. Am I not a fan? I have supported USC since I was old enough to understand what football was and I will support them the rest of my life. I watch ever minute of every game from my home. I'm up with the team, down with the team, and I was every bit as pumped up about beating that team from the upstate Saturday night as any fan in the stands. Don't say I'm not a fan, because you don't know what you're talking about if you do.

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...
LMAO, I do not think the world revolves around me and wrote that in regards to those saying it is not a big deal it happens everywhere, did not compare it to smoking crack or murder one time, get a life! You state it is wrong and would be pissed if these things happen to you or your family so you agree, no matter what other people do around the country it does not make it ok to do it in Williams Brice and that is my opinion, take it or leave it. It is classless to throw things at people with out regards to the consequences and to say it happens everywhere so it is ok is as irresponsible as the folks throwing things was my point, so hop off your soap box and bark up a different tree since in your statement you agree that it is wrong!

What part of the football program did you take part in?

I hope it wasn't the part that monitored whether our student section was on their best behavior.

I was on the field, what have you done for the football program? Tell me about all the time you invested?

I was up at 5 AM for winter workouts, I spent the long summers in the heat, I made the daily crossing from WB to the practice field. But I must admit your money must absolutely be what matters most.

Those are great sacrifices. I'm sure we all appreciate them.

Did you get to play, and/or earn a scholarship?

Are you paying it forward now by joining the Gamecock Club to support future and current athletes?

Hope so. I hope you aren't resting on your laurels and talking about what you used to do. That would be too much like a Tater for my tastes.

Your original point was that going to games automatically makes you a better fan. To me that's like saying putting the most presents under the tree at Christmas makes you the best parent.

Err no.

Saying you are a huge fan and not going to games...especially the Clemson game. Is like calling yourself a great parent, and not showing up for Christmas to see your kids.

Obviously, there are exceptions. But we can argue about that all day.

Was he that former recruit for Clemson who suffered a stroke, and his scholly was honored, and now he is associated with Clemson's team somehow. Jake Ni..(sp)? Someone said he was arrested at the game on Tigernet.

When you do this and walk directly toward our student section and your dipshit players bark at our students, then yes you shouldnt be suprised when you get pelted with trash. Dont act like a piece of shit and you wont get treated like one.
