Default I wonder why Gov. Haley's appointee didn't approve the name "Gamecock Park"

http://www.gogamecocks.com/2013/08/2...ailgating.html

Not trying to start a political discussion, I just wonder what he could've had a problem with the name "Gamecock Park?"

I don't know his reason, but I do know him and he is not a tater. He is a VERY HUGE Gamecock fan and has been for the 30 years I've known him.

She is the governor of THE STATE...not the Governor on behalf of Clemson.

And if she can't seperate that, she does't need to be governor anymore (although there are many other reasons why she probably shouldn't win re-election, but this isn't a political thread).

The asphalt area around the stadium will get a makeover next.
A plaza replicating what's at Gamecock Park with trees, grassy areas and brick walkways will be built.

The university has zero say in what the fair grounds are called and cannot sell naming rights to them.

Why is that.....doesn't USC own the property. Or does the State own the property.

The school looked at selling the tailgating site's naming rights and seeing if a donor wanted to name the market, Tanner said. USC remains open to selling the naming rights, he said.

USC paid $15 million for the market site and $15.5 million to tear down buildings and landscape the new lot.
.

Whoops he said fair grounds...I think the State does own the fair grounds...im confused? lol

Not a Haley fan at all, but I don't think she's let her taterhood factor into her decisions. Remember Marcus Lattimore Day?

I agree with you, but it is funny considering that our stadium, formerly known as Columbia Municipal and then Carolina Stadium, is named in honor of the Williams-Brice family after a sizable donation.

I would prefer a naming like that, instead of a corporate naming

Mrs. Governor's behavior towards USC has been classless and unexplainable since she was elected.

She publicly picks Clemson to beat USC by double digits.

She presents Stephen Colbert with a "ACC Champion Clemson Tigers" autographed football on national television.

She removes Darla Moore from the Board of Trustees, a more respectable woman than our governess could ever hope to be, without reason.

However, the most annoying thing she does is bandwagons our successes like betting with the governor of Florida over our national championship game.
