Default USC's Fanbase Compared to Clemson's

Clemson fans have got to be concerned about the erosion of their fan base. There was another recent poll that showed we had a huge lead in the 18-29 age bracket in South Carolina, which does not bode well for their future compared to ours.

I didn't post it as smack, just stating how large and overwhelming our fan base has become in South Carolina and even in parts of North Carolina.

Yep, coupled with the account they begin their downward slide after this year.

Not sure how much Clemson's fan base has deteriorated, and not sure I trust the graphic presented. I guess in the end it matters not to me.
Safe to say, I live in the Tarheel State, albeit in Charlotte, and "never" hear anyone talk about football..............except when they see me and my Gamecock attire.......

Default Re: USC's Fanbase Compared to Clemson's

I grew up in the upstate during the 80's, moved to columbia for school, then to Madison, Wilmington, and now back to Greenville. I am happy to watch the fanbase grow in the upstate for the past 10 years. More kids who were tater's growing up, going to school at USC and becoming lifelong gamecocks continues to make my day. Only the privileged few from the upstate get accepted to Clempson these days, they have to make their money on out of state kids who leave and do nothing for our state.

Carolina is growing leaps and bounds, leaving Clemp's son on the dust.

I agree with that statement. I live in Anderson, right below Greenville & right next to Clemson so I'm surrounded by orange on a daily basis. I see more & more garnet showing up in the past few years than I've seen my whole life living here.

You sound just like me!! I am from Charlotte and while all my friends had Duke and UNC t shirts, I was wearing my George Rogers jersey! I put up with a lot of crap over the years but as they say "payback is a B####".

Now live in Clover and CU fans have jumped to first place in my most obnoxious fan list.

Notre Dame is much bigger in the NorthEast than that.
Especially now that they're good again.

I was up there around Christmas through NewYears and of the little college sports talk that occurred, it was Notre Dame.

I think the data might be misleading because it was taken from facebook. We all know clempson fans don't know how to use a computer.

Nobody outside of the SouthEast knows where cLIMPson is. Trust me on that, because I've been to a lot of places and I've asked them.
