I will tell you this about Sterling in that he is very serious when it comes to competing. He will joke around with a few that he is close to but outside of that he is focused in on competing like most athletes are. Some are able to interact (like Spurrier) and some don't. That's just the way it is.

Go to the Masters during the practice rounds and interact with the players and you will see the differences. Two names come to mind - take Tom Kite for instance and he does not interact because he doesn't want distractions needs to stay focused while practicing and then take a Fuzzy Zoeller who talks to anyone and everyone that will listen to him.

Just because he doesn't sign his name for you doesn't mean he is not a stand up guy.
Nobody asked for any autographs and the group he was playing with initiated the contact. He made an effort to avoid interaction by walking away while the people he was with wanted to talk.

There's no comparison with practice rounds at Augusta and a casual round in Columbia.

He has the right to act and interact however he chooses but don't try to make him out to be some outstanding man of the people when he's not.

Bottom line is the issues with Sterling and the school are part King Dixon and part Sharpe's ego.

Did the school shun him first, or did he keep his distance from the program first?

I knew Sterling when he was in school. He was fine around people he knew, but if he didn't know you he could be a bit rude, even an asshole at times. He was arrogant, but most of that was the result of his confidence. I have no idea whether he's changed or not, but I suspect his issues with the school are a result of both sides sharing some of the blame.

He ate at a restaurant/deli where I was waiting tables at in the spring of 1988. I think he was with his girlfriend. He didn't come of as rude or arrogant, just seemed like a quiet guy.

I don't know if he is serious, but it is sad, sad, sad, that fans want to come on here and trash a Gamecock great over some incident in which they perceived he slighted them. First, the account may be completely false so I don't believe it happened unless they post evidence to prove it. Second, their perception is probably wrong. Third, Sterling deserves his privacy, and if he does not know you, why should he waste his time on you?

So what if you had walked up to Marcus Lattimore when he was with his family or something, and he had politely said he was busy? Would he now be an asshole? I understand what you're saying, but I disagree with anyone thinking that any celebrity of any kind owes them anything when they are in a public place unless it is literally for the purpose of interacting with fans. I understand as celebrities they understand that anytime they go out in public, they are likely to get attention, but that still doesn't mean they owe you anything. I think if you had 100 people coming up to you every time you went to get a coffee or go to the grocery store, you'd get annoyed sometimes too. Coach Spurrier told my friend to leave him alone at St. Patrick's Day festival several years ago when he came up and said nothing other than thank you and went to shake his hand. I don't think Spurrier's an asshole now because of it. You have no idea what went on between SS and USC, if these rumors are true sounds like SS got a raw deal. You have no idea when you or anyone approaches him if the last person to do so yelled at him for being an asshole because they approached him while he was talking on his phone, but he's the asshole cuz he didn't drop everything he was doing to satisfy the fans wants. Walk a mile in his shoes before you're so quick to judge him.

You still haven't answered if you know Sterling or not?

Because if you don't know him and act this way in public I'm surprised anyone talks to you.

He does have the right to interact with people however he chooses and just because its not to your liking does not mean his an asshole.

There is a huge difference between being Cocky and Confident and most people can't distinguish between the two and automatically accuse them as a Cocky A$$hole which is not the case with Sterling.

Good lord people. Sometimes famous folks are introverts, too - just like lots of other people. So the guy doesn't shoot sparks out his ass, big deal. I'm super excited to have him back in fold, so to speak.

I saw his partnering with SOS in the annual golf tournament as a pretty clear fence-mending gesture. He has done it for the past 3 or 4 years I believe. He didn't have to do that.

No offense to Sterling, but Shannon Sharpe, that's who he should emulate. Character gets you a long way in this world, and if the doping scandal was that wide spread back then, maybe someone should say something. I highly doubt that USC gave Sharpe the cold shoulder. Highly doubt, you don't see George Rodgers doing that.

George Rogers was before the USC steroid era. It was the Joe Morrison era they gave the cold shoulder to. I'd definitely happened and we can thank king Dixon for it

I actually see where Dixon was coming from at the time, although he was off the mark, and not the man for the job. Ironically, he's now the former star player that many hate, which is too bad.

I think you can say Michael Jordan is similar....he has always been an introvert as well. We have a lot of guys that have played for us that are similar.

And all of that is 100% truth. Some big screw-ups in past Gamecock athletics.

He was a great player for South Carolina and I don't give a damn if he interacts with me or not. He probably feels the same way about me.....he doesn't have to be my friend or pretend he likes me. Just play the damn game and win and I am happy...

This is long overdue, Sharp was a man among boys. I have lots of great memories of Sterling brutalizing DB's.
