Gotta admit, UNC fans have the upper hand in this one.

Against Southern Cal, we can always respond to claims of "more people know us nationally as this" with the whole "we were a school before you were a state" deal. It doesn't really change perception but it's a funny retort. But when most people around the country do think of UNC as Carolina, they're older, etc - what can you really say?

So I hear this "Carolina" bleeds Tarheel Blue...which to me simply means Clowneys jersey will be covered in this pastel baby blue by the end of the game.

Default Re: The Real Carolina?

And truthfully, I know some fans get heated over the non-recognition of the Gamecocks as USC or Carolina...but to me, I feel like the monicker of S.Car is almost better. To me that means when you play us you'll remember it forever as we leave you with a Scar...kinda bad ass

I've lived all over the country. This is simply not true about Carolina. In the SEC footprint, we are Carolina. An ever decreasing area of the country thinks of UNC when they hear Carolina as the Gamecocks rise.

We have won a two college world series, and finished in the top 10 in football in recent years. What has Dabo's Carolina done? Gone on probation?

So from a recognition standpoint, it's possibly a toss up in the Southeast and everywhere else favors UNC. Does that seem reasonable?

Our 2 CWS championships are great but baseball is a distant 3rd in terms of college sports popularity / revenue, so there's only so much that can do for us. There's no question we're miles better in football, but they are a top 3 basketball program historically that won a championship just 4 years ago.

It doesn't matter how their football team does, because nationally they're really just known as Carolina because of basketball. Conversely, until we start winning championships in football, it's unlikely people outside of SEC country will pick up on it.

UNC is SCARed of what is before them, and will be SCARred for life when they leave. I have no problem leaving a major SCAR on all opponents. They need to know they are going to hurt.
