Default Gamecocks v tarheels at Bank of America Stadium to open the 2015 season

They are saying on Charlotte talk radio that it is a done deal. Seems to be a natural and advantageous rivalry to start in my opinion.

It appears we are going to find out, in my opinion recruiting the state of NC has and will be a very large part of our success in the future of both basketball and football with the athlete factories(private prep schools) in the state they have been putting out top tier talent. We need to keep our foot on the throat of the tarheels to keep that advantage as well as I love beating them!
What do we have to gain by playing a team other than them?

I think this is awesome.

1. I don't have to drive far for a Gamecock Game.

2. It's a natural geographic "rivalry" game.

3. It's a shot for the Gamecocks to show off in the solid recruiting grounds of the greater Charlotte area.

4. This game will be televised nationally.

5. Lower bowl seats have armchairs.

6. It will give us a chance to show who runs the Carolinas in football.

I don't have any inside knowledge, but I bet if this thing checks out, it would mean we are giving up a home game.

If the UNC series does pan out, look for AD Ray Tanner to negotiate our return trip to Greenville, NC during 2017 season.

Or he may get us out of the ECU series all together.

That would blow chunks and I would be very disappointed in Ray, if it is true. He should be well aware that Gamecock fans have no affinity for the ACC and his being a NC State graduate does not change that fact.

Playing any ACC team...ANY ACC team...does not benefit us. Never help an enemy.

We do not need to play a NC team to recruit well in that state. Win, carry the SEC Conference banner and we'll do just fine there.

Keep this mind, that could very easily be Connor Mitch, Drew Barker, or even Nosovitch's first start. 2014 would be Thompson's final year. Just something to keep in mind.

Does beating the shit out of the enemy qualify as 'helping' the enemy?

No, it does not.

I mean, under your 'logic' we should cease playing Clemson altogether, right? Ridiculous.

Default Re: Gamecocks v tarheels at Bank of America Stadium to open the 2015 season

If I remember correctly when the USC / UNC deal was in the works, this
was something the Tarheels wanted but didn't want to come to Columbia.

Spurrier was the one behind the UNC matchup. As soon as he took the
job here, he made it publicly clear that he wanted to renew the rivalry
between UNC and USC and said it had the makings of a really good
boarder war game. He got Hyman on it, and in the orginal negociation,
UNC wanted to play one game in Chapel Hill, and another in Charlotte
(neutral site), but did not mention coming to Columbia. That was what
Hyman and Spurrier pushed for. A home / home and then if they wanted
to do a neutral site, they could do one later down the line. .. I was under
the understanding that UNC basically said NO DEAL to that. Our admin
know that we (USC) would probably have more fans at Charlotte than
the Tarheels would, and recruiting the Charlotte area would be boosted
with a game there, but he wanted the Home/Home thing done before
even thinking about it. .... Eventually Hyman worked out a deal to play
the Home/Home, but it was set up so that there would be 3 years
(originally) between the two games, and the buyout for either team was
very low....Something a lot of Gamecock fans did not like, nor did any of
the local talkshow hosts. And their reasoning for the dislike was made
know when a year later, UNC played us at Chapel Hell, and then wanted
to buy out the other game in 2010 due to scheduling LSU in their opener.

Hyman said that there was no way he'd allow UNC to back out of that
game, and eventually got them to reschedule it in 2013.

I'm OK with kicking their ass on a yearly or every other year basis if they
want to make this a regular game, but for god sakes, make them play
this game in Columbia this year. We went there, and they should honor
the part about coming to Columbia and playing. ... After that, bring them ON !!
Anywhere, Any Date. I HATE UNC as much as I hate Clemson
and beating their asses would be just as pleasant in my book. LEZ DU DIS !

If it were up to me, I would not play Clempson or any ACC team, any sport, ever. If no one from the SEC played any ACC team, if dilutes their conference appeal even more and makes them even weaker and less attractive to recruits and makes it tougher for them to climb in national polls due to a weaker schedule.

Helping the "enemy" is propping up their schedule by having an attractive opponent on it, helping their recruiting by letting recruits know they play in the ACC AND play SEC teams, by giving them more media attention, by gaining nothing because we are suppose to win, but if we lose, gain much grief and ridicule.

If we play UNC, then you know damn well next will be NC State or other ACC teams. Screw them. They treated us like crap when we were members and caused much harm to our sports programs, so no way should we lift a finger of cooperation toward anyone in that conference. They can rot.

And then every media outlet in the nation would be clamoring about the mighty SEC being scared to play any team from the lowly ACC.

Then you laugh at them for being so stupid for believing such a thing (you know they'll say it, but even they won't believe it). This is about lack of respect for a deceitful, backstabbing, double standards conference. They don't deserve to be on the same field with the SEC. The ultimate revenge is to ignore their being. When the bowls come around, we can play them when we may have no choice. We can prove the conference superiority then.

The rest of the SEC doesn't know our history with the ACC, so they'll still play ACC teams, but we can just tell the ACC we refuse to play any of their teams until they make a public apology for our treatment in the ACC and they did so intentionally to hurt our sports programs under McGuire and Dietzel because they did not want to see a doormat get up off the floor and beat them, let alone have the audacity to ask for equal treatment of all members in that conference. It won't happen.

I would much rather play UNC or some other ACC team over Wofford, Luisiana Tech, New Mexico Sate, The Citadel, UABor whoever.

it's a game I actaully would want to watch.

lets be honest here. you are an oldtimer that remembers the carolina acc split, and that is what drives your opinion.

If you can move past that blind hate i think you will see that dominating unc on national television, while in charlotte, would be awesome. its time to let go, man.

Scared to play an ACC team? That's just stupid. Giving away a home game because it's an ACC team...now that's stupid.
