This is the first time I've had the interest/availability to maybe make it to some fall practice - Can someone break it down like I'm 6?

Where are the practice fields? Is it free parking near the field? Are there bleachers or any kind of angled view? Thanks for helping out a first timer.

Spurticus, I've been waiting for this for a while. My wife has learned, it doesn't matter where we're at. Once I realize there's a Spurticus' Practice Report posted ... nothing else matters until I finish.

Thank you sir for what you do for our great team and site.

-The practice fields are on Bluff Rd near the stadium.

-Parking is free but get there early to get a spot adjacent to the practice fields.

-No Bleachers

-You can take pictures and video for the first 30minutes

-no overhang, and it will be warm still

Only nine, Spurt? Had no idea you were a single-digit midget. LOL. Guess next year will take care of that tho since you're still just a growing boy.

An odd thing I've noticed about the aging process: As the body I've depended on lifelong to sustain begins to betray, my heart grows even stronger. Some mornings I awake to find myself bursting with love. Guess that's why it took all of Gamecock Nation to take her place.

Don't mean the kind of love I felt in my youth; that kind of love left me the day she did. It's more of a generalized love that I feel for everyone, especially our young as I see them struggling to grow up and find their place in the world.

In retrospect, I believe the most difficult task adults face is cutting the umbilical cord to their young allowing them to become themselves. This single thought explains the difference between Dabo's and SOS's recruiting and managing philosophies.

Dabo tries to keep the cord intact with him taking the parents place; SOS and staff let nature take its course helping the boys they have signed become young men we can be proud to call family.

Spurt, they say one picture is worth a thousand words, but you're the exception that proves that rule. In your case, your words paint such vivid insight no pictures are needed.

Thank you for chronicling the history of and helping us take care of our family.

Thank you, I thought that's where the practice fields were, and had assume no bleachers, just standing probably on the other side of a rope? I read the pictures thing somewhere, but I probably won't bother with my camera. Thanks for the info! I let my parents keep my daughter last night, so I've got to arrange a pick up after work, and my wife is out of town with her mom today shopping, so hopefully I can get my little girl back and have my wife get back in town in time to make it out there. I wish I had all day - I'd have tailgate practice (set up my tents and satelite tv in the parking lot to make sure I've got it all and it works).

Sure, just look at my avatar . . . . . then imagine the complete opposite of that, and you'll see me. I'll be wearing at least a gamecock polo, and probably a white gamecock hat. If you see that combo, just ask if it's bryarx!

Seriously though, this is me. I'm the one that's not Todd Ellis, or holding a baby:

Here's a list of all the practice dates and events up to opening day:
http://www.cockytalk.com/showthread.php?t=194545

All of those will not be open..... In the fall, they usually shut it down
after the first two weeks of practice and have the last two weeks "behind
closed doors"..... just have to listen and keep an eye on the local media
to announce when they will close. .... If it's the first two weeks then
probably will be closed after the practice on Aug 17th (scrimmage).

The usually hold a spur of the moment Scrimmage mid week that is
not listed on the schedule as well, that will be open to the public, but
that will be announced when /if the coaches schedule it.
