Default Fan Uniform Thread

Went to the Spring Game with a buddy of mine from Va Tech and my disappoinment in the quality of our fanbase has finally boiled over. It has been getting there for awhile. It is unbeleivable the classless trashy look that some of our fans show. Most of it all starts with these Jewelry Warehouse tshirts with slogans on them that I bet most clemson fans would die to have. My buddy from Va Tech pointed this out and wanted to know if they did not sell normal Carolina coaches golf shirts and normal khaki shorts or pants in SC. People everywhere strolling around in jean shorts with tshirts with things like "we bust ours to kick yours" or "we are Cocky for a reason" on the front and back. I remember when we played FSU a few years back, there was this couple in front of me with matching jewelry warehouse tshirts that said "our tomacock is bigger than your tomahawk". WTF? Do people not realize what a trashy representation of Carolina this shows? Sadder thing is people dress thier kids in this stuff...going ahead and letting the next generation know how "cool" this is. They really need to examine themselves if they think this is cool. Our football program has made strides in the past few years; really sad our fans cannot do the same. Embarrassing....

For the longest time, I think our fanbase had the mentality that any win was worthy of making a shirt for. I personally will never buy a shirt commemorating a win over clempson, or Alabama, and that's just to give you two extremes in my mind. Back in that day, that's all there was to celebrate. You beat UGA or Clempson and go .500, that was the prize for the year. Shirts and hats for championships is another matter, but that will hopefully come with time.

All of that said, people have the right to wear what they like, and if there is enough demand people will buy it. It is not something I prefer, and I hope it goes away eventually, but I think it will take some time.

Solid first post, though. Starting out with the wheels rolling is always a good way to go.

Wow..

I haven't worn a t-shirt to a game since I was young. I stick with a UA polo and khaki shorts/pants. But this isn't UVA or Auburn where everyone dresses like it's a horse race. I spotted a couple of jean shorts the other day and got a laugh in. But in no way am I embarrassed by these people. We don't exactly have a wine and cheese crowd and I enjoy that. What other fans wear to a game has zero effect on me.

I have a shirt from Parents Weekend against E. Michigan...just saying.

Not everyone dresses alike. Let people wear what they want. Would you like to poke fun of the fraternity members who wear shirt/ties as well? You should know by now that if someone can find a way to put a clever "cock" reference into a phrase its going on a tshirt.

I don't have a problem with it.
I personally don't buy it because I don't like shirts that give recognition to other schools.
I stick with the basic garnet shirt with Carolina on the front...or a hoody with Carolina on the front.

But that is just me...simple and to the point.
Would wear polos, but don't feel like spending $50 on a shirt just because it has Carolina on it and is made by UnderArmour.

Could have something to do with the fact that this was a free game. The fan bases cleans up pretty well when it is the students and season ticket holders attending the regular games.

There should only be 7 approved shirts to wear, and either khaki or black pants. I'm not communist I swear!

PS: There is a dress code for section 506. Muted colors only.

Could we do something with the fans singing the Alma Mater? I mean, the sopranos were COMPLETELY off and the Tenors were a bit flat. I do NOT want this university represented by such scoundrels, who debase the good name of the school of music with their poor tone.

Agree 5000%. The way some of the fans dress at games is deplorable. It's a public, University-sponsored event... take some pride in your appearance.

Points to the OP for hitting the nail on the head, and for you for pointing this out.

I was at UGA's Spring game as well and they had a number of people there that looked like they were straight out of central casting for "Deliverance". Spring Football is free, and therefore an easy way for folks to watch Carolina without having to do anything but show up. Thus bringing in a few lower tier fans. I think this happens at every major public university.

But to the OP: Spot on!

I wonder if a lot of folks in our fan base even have mirrors.

Nothing makes me more nauseous than dudes strutting around with t-shirts from JW, rolled up sleeves, carpenter jorts, all-white New Balance cross-trainers, and a 200 pound "old lady" hanging off their right arm.

Embarrassing.

This reminds me of that old thread about wearing jerseys to games.

It is a football game. Wear whatever the hell you want to wear...jerseys, t-shirts, polos...who cares?

Williams-Brice Stadium...not Williams-Brice Country Club.

I totally agree! I also think the Coca-Cola machines do not have the correct proportion of syrup to water. This offends my sensibilities, and I think the university can do better than this.
