Default Re: New Sign at Williams Brice

The photo of the renderings is inaccurate. It is the middle pillar that will have the Block C that will light up and night like behind the scoreboard. A player (waiting to be named) will have a photo hanging out below. The school has plans to beautify the rest of the stadium but it all comes in time. It is NOT lipstick on a pig. That's an insult BIG TIME. Donate more money to fix it if you have issues with it. The school is looking at wi-fi, upgrading concessions, bathrooms, etc., but it takes time and money. If you are standing at the back of Gamecock Park or the new practice facility you will be able to see the new lit up sign from a far.

A few hanging plants here and there would add a nice touch:)

Do you people sit outside tailgating and staring at the stadium like "omg she is like so hideous... I would totally add some fusia to the elevator shaft to bring out her natural features".

Some of them...yes.

Some folks aren't happy unless they are finding things to whine about.

It wouldn't surprise me. I feel like some people just find things to bitch about, just to hear themselves talk.

Yep, lots of people have big ideas just don't ask some of them to pay for it. That's somebody else's job. Far as I'm concerned if you're not a member of the GCC your opinion of what "We" should do means nada. If & when you're willing to pony up your cash, preach on.

About the same as me telling someone you should buy your wife or child a Ferrari. I've got a grandiose suggestion, just no skin in the game.

How about his we replace the sign with a vertical video board. Tall and narrow only one of its kind. The sign could be included at the top. The only thing I can think of now would be monster player running from the back ground to the foreground, impressive? Don't hold back, ha like you would.

Yeah, that would be cool, but I am not even calling for anything expensive like that. Just a couple of coats of paint and some banners to cover up some of the uglier structural parts, because that is a quick & cheap way I can think of making the outside not ugly, so it matches all the great landscaping we have planned. I am not trying to anger any GGC members who get all the perks anyway, but this is a public school and all the fans contribute when they show up for games and ALL the fans deserve to have a stadium that looks good inside and out. We are in an SEC arms race. We're doing all this landscaping around the stadium so that tells me we aren't planning on relocating so we have to make the WB look great.

No need to start I have the right to say more than anyone else because you are in the GCC, there are people who just can't afford to donate money that GCC members can donate, the vast majority of Gamecock Nation just can't do it, but non GCC members are still subject to the ever increasing ticket prices.

So...if someone doesn't pay into the Gamecock Club their opinion is meaningless?

Really?

You seriously believe that?

You have some points. There is also a struggle to bring folks in vs them watching on their 60" HD TV. Making it visually pleasing won't do it by itself, but does help. I also hope upgrading the interior, making real bathrooms, etc will help if we would do that.

Look at other teams stadiums that have a brick exterior: FSU, Alabama, TAMU, Michigan. They're's looks great bricked and Williams Brice would too. That in my opinion is what is missing from WB.

If not brick the fašade of the Brice at least use the same kind of signage material that adorns the Towers of Triumph, there could just alternating garnet and black, the bare concrete needs to go.
