Isn't he only a sophomore? I hope he comes to Carolina, but it's so early to worry.

The triangle schools are only 3.5 hours away. The "stay at home" considerations are good, but it's not a big deal to drive to watch his games, if you're in Columbia. He'll get exposure anywhere, but he'll be seen by way more people and talked up more in the ACC. That's a fact.

If those schools are packed at guard however, I could see him staying here and starting right away. If he bolts though, that will leave us right where we were, except other top talents may be more drawn to us.

How long do you think thornwell will stay? If we could ever field a team with Dozier Woods and Thornwell on it I would be very excited

I heard Kornblut say Dozier and Woods want to see how the fans support the program. Nobody wants to play in front of fans dressed as empty seats. So right now, I would say things do not look good, based on that. But I am hopeful things can change and fans will see the big picture and support the team.

It won't take much to bring the fans back. The last time we were an NCAA team in 2004, we averaged over 17,000 for home SEC games. We were not ranked that season and we barely snuck into the tournament, so it's not like we were a top 25 team.

There ain't much to do in columbia after bowl season, if we are competitive, the fans will come out. Baseball doesn't appeal to everyone, and some fans love all sports.

Maybe we have a chance if we get a lot better, otherwise no chance. And people are going to show up just to watch a bad team. That doesn't happen anywhere.

It did look like a good crowd on tv. Hopefully we can get that again this weekend when the recruits are in town

Typical student with tickets already paid for:

"I'M NOT GOING UNTIL THEY START WINNIN GAMES!!!"

I called it though. These players are big recruits, there's no way they're going to turn down the opportunity to play national tv games at a staple program to play for a half-assed supported team like us. We really need to pack CLA and get loud if we want either of them.

Win or lose, fans of Duke, UNC, Indiana, and plenty of others are going to fill their arenas. So they look appealing regardless. If we want them, we're going to have to go to CLA even if the Gamecocks aren't winning. It's called loyalty.

Dozier is a 2015 recruit and Woods is a 2016 recruit.

If Thornwell stayed all four years and we got both players, he would get to play with both in his senior year. I'm not sure how likely that is though, given that Thornwell has the talent to be an NBA player. He might not go in the lottery, but I can see him being drafted.

When Woods is a freshman, most of our team will be seniors.

I am going to say if UNC or Duke was as bad as we have been this decade they wouldn't show. They just aren't bad

They've had some rough seasons, but fans keep going. It's all about tradition and loyalty. I remember Frank talking about that being a huge thing he wants to establish here. Big recruits just don't want to go to some school because it's in their state. There has to be a tradition that draws them there. Tradition doesn't necessarily start with winning games. Winning games is the icing on the cake though.

The LSU game was a great start. I hope it doesn't get anywhere near as bad as the last season under Horn, when Kentucky pretty much created a home game at CLA. You could count the Gamecock fans there one hand.

Thank you! Basketball games are a lot of fun. I was quite a regular in college even before the Garnet Army was started, and enjoyed them so much. Sit close to the court and do a little friendly heckling for me.
