I guess you could argue they bring in money in other ways and give a free platform to promote our school. I always wonder if it would just make more sense to cut most of the programs that lose money and pay football/basketball players.

DeShields and Cooper. They have to know they can get a degree, win a national title, and go to the WNBA playing here. We're in UConn talent level if Dawn can convince them to be Gamecocks.

It's Sunday. Whole lotta prayin' goin' on!
Sorry to say 'Ain't gonna do the oppo any good.
We gonna dress T'ea and Diamond in G&B.
Hope Geno bade farewell to Natty a few wks ago
'cause he ain't gonna see her for a long long time.

Gonna be two three deep all over. For example:
Sweet T'ea's gonna stir the drink for 10 mins at 110.
Turn to Pebbles, Your turn, girl. Give 'em fits.
Back & forth we go. Ain't no 'I' in us & Gamecock Nation.
Bigs & wings better be ready for snowbirds from Heaven.

Gotta stop & go to church 'cause it's Sunday,
but don't forget about DD on the wing
trying to stiffle that sly grin on her face
waitin' for 'em to pack it in
so she can light it up.

The interest has to be for real imo. To me it seems like DD and Cooper don't really know where they want to play. If Georgia was better it would probably be there, but it's clear they want to play together, and Diamond seemed really interested in playing with A'ja too.

So cut programs with student athletes who actually use athletics as a means to a college degree but keep and pay barely literate and educated football and basketball players? Sounds kind of counterproductive to the purpose of college athletics.

I wouldn't cut any program, especially to pay athletes. Enough money is generated if they really wanted to pay. But the purity/purpose of college athletics left a long time ago.. It's a business, a lucrative one at that..

Not really, the profits the universities make are invested in the betterment of the schools and the community and the economy. The only reason it seems the "purity is gone" is because some of the players think they are too good at a sport that they should be bothered to open a book and use their brains a little bit.

Yep, and a lot of the other sports are rich kids sports such as equestrian. They could afford college easily without a scholarship.

I don't have the high hopes that they come to USC like others have. I think both end up at UT...

How much of that money does Carolina or the City of Columbia really see? Betterment?? When's the last time Carolina went down on tuition? Ticket prices? Anything, not related to a coaches salary or facility improvement.

I'm sure they don't make money, but the publicity from having a top, national program is priceless.

I agree; their quotes about our facilities and Dawn's realness really give me hope that they will be Gamecocks. If they do, the UT and UCONN fans will definitely know we are going to be a force to be reckoned with.

You'd rather have the farmer's market still there and those other run-down buildings we just bought? They didn't build a new greek village and top notch athletic center and the Dodie and they didn't tear down the honeycombs put a new dorm for the honors college? There was no West Quad when I graduated in 2001. It's really nice. There is a lot of construction going on in Assembly and I don't even know what is it. Something is being built next to the Collesium.

And it cost money to keep your students having access to updated technology and if you want to attract better professors you need to open up your budget even more.

USC athletics is the lifeblood of economy in Columbia. So you HAVE put a ton of money to it. And it is worth every single penny. The more money we put into it and the more successful our big money sports are, the money we are going to get from TV Networks deals and the more funding we have for future projects and scholarships and other forms of financial aid, and improving the overall quality of our education.

We are not trying to make things CHEAPER, because Cheaper is not BETTER. And that is their mission, to provide the best education as possible and for that, they needs as much money as possible, and for that, they have pump as much money as is feasible into athletics so that they can get even more money out of it.

However, I digress, because this thread is about Diamond Deshields.
