I don't disagree. I've already stated in this thread that it's a matter of getting our 7 home games. I was speaking to the point that "one loss doesn't matter". If you replace ECU or UMASS with a strong OOC opponent this past season we probably wouldn't have gone bowling. One loss can definitely impact your season, so lets not act like we're this big powerhouse every year and it's just a matter of getting to the playoffs or not.

Well, sadly, it seems most fans here have already written off the Muschamp era here as a total failure.


I, for one, still believe he was a good hire and get it done here.

I'd rather play at ECU than ANYONE in Charlotte. I hate neutral site games! I know it's all about the money and nonsense,
But I'd much rather just play home and homes. I'm not afraid of playing in greenville nc.

7 home games is a standard for colleges on the level of USC.

But of course, according to some; failure to honor this game is a dick move and all of the above factors are not important.

The schools get so much extra revenue from these neutral site games. It's similar to a bowl game where there's a guaranteed payout. From a business standpoint, it's great for the athletic dept.

However, I personally am not a great fan of playing in Charlotte. The past two times it has felt like a second tier game - crowd seems dead, lots of empty seats, and not exactly a premier opponent. I hope it will be different after this year vs NC State.

I'd love to see us play in the Atlanta game. It's primetime every year, and we don't play in Atlanta enough.

The school will make up for the $1 million with all the money they make for adding that extra home game

We could use an easy home game instead of ECU. We need to do what we can to get back at 10 or 11 win seasons again

The past few years have been Thursday evening games, tickets were expensive, and traffic was terrible so most people chose to watch that one on the couch. I would much rather see a mediocre match up as a home game, the school makes money, the local shops and hotels make money, and fans get a home game. I really dislike the whole neutral site games.

“We had an opportunity to go to Charlotte in 2019, so we were having some conversations about moving that game out somewhere else, if we go to Greenville twice or if we don’t.”

As it stands, South Carolina has a neutral site game against North Carolina in Charlotte in 2019 to open the season. USC also has home nonconference games against Clemson and Charleston Southern to close out its season.

Tanner left the door open to possibly playing the game against ECU at a neutral site.
If South Carolina was to back out of the trip to ECU in 2019, the Gamecocks would be on the hook for a $1 million buyout.

“It could be added to the guarantee when they come here in 2020,” Tanner said. “It will all be worked out.”

South Carolina has played ECU four times this decade, with the first meeting taking place in Charlotte in 2011 and three subsequent meetings in Columbia in 2012, 2014 and 2015.

The Gamecocks remain scheduled to play at ECU in 2021.

“Those things sometimes change with football schedules,” Tanner said. “We will continue to work on that and play East Carolina. We are likely to go there in 2021.”

Move UNC game in 2019 to Chapel Hill? Then ECU in either Columbia or Charlotte in 2020, and Greenville in 2021?
