Default Re: SOS not happy with students

I'm going to get flack for saying this, but until the focus of gameday is football, people who are there just to be seen will continue to leave early. Case in point: girls in black dresses and cowboy boots. Really? For a football game? It's not a fashion show, and even if it was -- COWBOY BOOTS???? Stupidest thing I've seen in a long time, and I LIVED THROUGH ORANGE BAGGY PANTS, LEG WARMERS AND BELTED, SHOULDER-PADDED SWEATERS. And MULLETS ON GIRLS!

Yes, I'm old and crotchety and yes, things were better in my day. We wore a Gamecock t-shirt to the football games and that was good enough! We also had to walk to class in the snow -- uphill! Both ways! In Columbia! And we didn't have your fancy-schmancy cellular mobile phones. If we needed to talk to somebody -- we went and found them! If we wanted music, we had to carry a 15-lb. boom box on our shoulder. AND WE WERE GLAD TO HAVE THAT! Y'all spoiled whippersnappers! GET OFF MY LAWN! *shakes fist*

(Having said that, make students pay for their tickets. Doesn't have to be full price, but if you get something for free, it begins to feel like it isn't worth anything.)

Don't knock the boots till you try it. My boots are the most comfortable things for me to wear to games.

Default Re: SOS not happy with students

we don't get it "for free".. but part of it does have to do with not actively paying for it each game, I guess..


did any of yall have to pay for student tickets back in the day? (not sarcastic, just wondering how it was back then)

I thought the students were awarded tickets on a point system. If thats so then scan theri tickets on the way out and penalize them points for leaving early.

Get off of that. This is probably another reason many are leaving. Ignorance stemming from the mistake of believing they are entitled to those tickets.

Then they just don't scan the ticket. They just leave without scanning it. They lleave the ticket in their pocket or throw it away. You have to make the students want to get the ticket scanned.

This is the single biggest reason why. I see it personally now.
This. I waited in line all four years of my time at Carolina and it was the best experience. We made many friends and still keep in touch to this day. I not only appreciated the game more than usual but it was a part of my college experience that I would never give up.

When I heard they were moving it to an online function I had mixed feelings. It is easier but as has been said many times in this thread it devalues the game for each person.

There were people who tried to cut in line but that stopped quickly. Tough to do that in front of a couple of thousand people no matter where you tried to cut.

And one other thing, in my four years of waiting in line I never had to miss a class. Did have to stay overnight a couple of times in front of the library but that is what made it special. Not a point and click experience.

Just my 2 cents: Some of my best times as a Carolina student were spent camping out for basketball tickets during the Frank McGuire era! Yes, I'm old.

The HBC is getting very pissed at this issue and I heard the highlights on the way to work this morning and he was livid when he went to point to say boo those who leave early. The students now aren't old enough to have experienced the dark days of Fat Brad, most of the them all they know is the final year or so of Holtz and all of the HBC, they either don't know or understand they are seeing the best football to every grace the Brice. They need to punish those who leave early because there are others who want to go and stay but the sororistutes and the guys that are there for chasing tail are the some of the biggest problems.

Hahaha some people do. But I personal just wear them for comfort.

Did I really see the argument a few pages back that students shouldn't even be given tickets? Now I've seen it all.

nobody says you have to go to games. if you dont want to that is great. if you decide to purchase tickets it needs to be with a dedication to the team. if you leave you should have to show your ticket. that person shouldnt be allowed to ever purchase football tickets again.

that person also should be put on some form of probation. maybe a whole year without being able to purchase tickets for the other sports. if this were to happen then the people buying them would truly be fans.

as a side note, i like the girlies in boots. if a girl wears boots on a saturday she will make a great gf.

ALL ARGUMENTS ASIDE tomorrow is my last game in the student section. I'll be the one crying uncontrollably getting pulled out by my boots by the ushers 2 hours after the game. With my toast to the alma mater still in the air.
