This situation was extremely limited in terms of choice. Anytime you have the reschedule a game without the original team you're going to have slim pickings. The reality is that it's at least not a huge difference from Marshall.

Well Akron's cancelled game that opened up the spot for the Zips was at Nebraska, so we could have scheduled them and flipped a two-headed coin for who gets home

There's a big difference between a chicken and a fighting gamecock. I know what our rivals call us. We don't need to give them any proof.
We used to not be scared of anyone.

We used to not be scared of anyone.

1 - we were rescheduling the marshal game.

2 - we were very limited in available teams.

3 - you assume that whatever team we picked would want to come to Columbia to play.

Get off your high horse. It would have been great to play a better team. Yes. But options were severely limited.

It's possible that we'll need this win to get to a bowl game, so I'm sure that was taken into consideration.

Could not be any more simple really. They refunded our money. If you want your same seats for this game just log into your account and get them before nov 19

Pretty simple

Exactly I could understand if it was a makeup game for Clemson or something. But considering that we're not likely to be in the running for any top tier bowls I don't see what there is to complain about. So trading Marshall for Akron isn't significant and I don't see how playing a subpar Nebraska would benefit in anyway either.

Depends. If we go 3-1, hell even 2-2 with a respectable showing @Florida, over the next month I'll consider attending the game. If we go 1-3, I probably won't even watch on TV.

Zips fans are a little upset because at 4-4 and projecting the rest of their schedule, they now see themselves landing on 5-7 and no bowl.

So this means we are their bowl game.

Yeah, I just heard Coach Tanner's comments on the pregame interview with Todd Ellis. I intended to come on here and apologize for jumping the gun, but I won't do that now, due to your condescending attitude.
In fact, I'm getting a little bit more than tired of being talked to like a kid on this website.

I didn't get tickets this year, did GCC members get refunded for parking? Or can they just use their Marshall pass?

You do realize there are a limited number of teams to choose from right? Only those who had games cancelled due to the hurricane would be eligible to play. That's a small number considering teams are already scheduling make up games. All other teams would have to play 13 games for us to play 12 so we had to take what we could get especially if we wanted to find a team that would play us at home.

All the complaining needs to stop. There were very limited choices. The storm only canceled a few games. Letís enjoy having another game after what could be a very ugly trip upstate. This would give us an upbeat team heading into a good bowl game.

Yeah who cares really. We are rebuilding and the more wins we can get the better. Hopefully we'll end up in the Gator Bowl against a big name opponent.

Most likely the stands will be half empty, plenty of seats for everyone who wants to go. Akron might have 12 fans, unless all of the Ohio people who moved to SC come to the game.
