Default Back From Athens

I got back from Athens around noon today. Here is my official debriefing from what I observed from Section 106 row 4 (45 yard line visitor side). Keep in mind I was pretty hammered and only had about 5 hours sleep from the Athens bender the night before:
  • We need to spend some money on WB. Samford stadium has better everything and has way more architectural features. We have a long way to go with facilities. I know we have made improvements but trust me when I say more needs to be done to compete with the elite teams of the SEC.
  • The UGA crowd was veryloud and stayed that way from finish to start. Their passion and intensity was impressive.
  • USC did not match the Bulldogs intensity at all.
  • There is no clear player leader(s) (at least during the game on the sidelines).
  • We are out of shape! To keep from naming players lets just say it was pathetic on the defensive side of the ball somewhere in the proximity of the line of scrimmage. It started early and got worse as the game rolled on. We should all be concern because it started so early!
  • No. 7's supporting cast members are having an extremely disappointing season so far.
  • USC's offense is pretty good and well balanced. Overall I was very happy with their performance.
  • D. Williams and B. Wilds are absolute physical specimens. I am excited about their upside.
  • M. Davis is fast. I had some great views of his runs. We are so lucky to have him.
  • I love N. Jones' attitude.
  • The HBC kept his composure (not sure this is a good thing in this type of game) and keeps to himself. I was not surprised when he said he did not witness the coach fight.


Anyway that is my worthless two cents. Looks like it is going to be a season of circling the wagons and trying to get better instead of competing for the next step. I hope I am wrong. Go Cocks.

Funny thing about Mike Davis. When he ran vs UNC, I texted by UNC cousin and told him that UGA would have caught him. I guess I was right as the UGA defender got to him at about the 5.

Yeah, could be a long year. I think other teams smell blood in the water on our defensive conditioning and are going to try to wear us out. We better get ahead of it

Mikes run against UGA started 5 yards deeper, so actually they wouldn't have caught him, or if they did it would have been at the goal line...

Yep.

That's the thing about facilities in the SEC. We are chasing a moving target. No one else is going to sit still. We better be thinking about the next thing, and the thing after that. We need to make it better for the players and the fans.

There is way more that needs to be done than the current plan through 2015. We are not even close in facilities to UGA, UF, UA, LSU, and what I have been told about A&M and Auburn....

I agree with a lot of this. However:

1. Money doesn't grow on trees. I agree that we need to renovate parts of WBS but that cost a pretty penny and after all the improvements we've been making around the athletic department and the rest of the University, I'm not sure we're that close in making MAJOR renovations.

2. I don't know if you are comparing a USC crowd to a UGA crowd but I'd say we are about similar. Yes they stayed a very long time (til late in the 4th) but in a close game at WBS our fans don't leave either.

3. Leadership was one of my main points of worry this season. Everyone wants to look at Connor Shaw and Dylan Thompson but Connor Shaw is not that vocal - and it's hard being a leader as a guy who is on the sideline majority of the game (DT). We do not have a vocal defensive leader at all. Someone needs to step up. I'm hoping that Skai Moore or Kawain Lewis does that soon.

4. Clowney's supporting cast is inexperienced. Clowney had a secruity blanket of guys like: Shaq Wilson, DeVonte Holloman, Stephon Gilmore, Travian Robertson, Reggie Bowens, etc. in years past. Our DB's were really inconsistent in previous years who have now earned the time to start - and our LB's are really young.

Having never been to an away game, could you travelers give me some examples on how these other stadiums are better than ours? I know our concessions leave a lot to be desired.

Ive been to Sanford stadium a few times....What is so great about it? The urinals have dividers? That was nice. Willy B looks bigger to me actually and it hold less people than Sanford. I never saw what was so great. I did like the urinals, dont have to worry about anyone glancing and making it weird. Ive heard Willy B much louder also. Remember if youre talking about last week there wasnt much to get jacked up about beating a mid pack ACC team, UGA was playing for their season, the fans were jacked. Be thankful for what we have. With those so called bigtime stadiums you mention comes National Titles and a lot of money. Our tradition doesnt have much of that in it. I love Willy B, always love walking in and seeing the field. Never gets old.

Size is not everything. The team that plays in the stadium is meaningless when judging a stadium. Of course all of us fans love Williams Brice Stadium simply because all or most of us grew up Carolina fans, and grew up coming to games or watching games. Find me a large amount of people (of any league of any sport at any level) that dislike their home field. I'll wait.

I've never heard a bunch of Brave fans say they hate Turner Field, or a bunch of Panthers fans say they hate Bank of America stadium? Just like you'll never find a ton of Gamecock fans that dislike Williams Brice Stadium. No one is begging for a new stadium, simply some upgrades or renovations.

I personally don't have a problem with our stadium - but it's not outlandish to see why people would like upgrades to make everything look "nicer". If you walked around the concourse of Sanford stadium and Williams Brice Stadium you would easily be able to tell the difference - and you'd actually be shocked to know that Sanford stadium is OLDER than Williams Brice Stadium...

Sanford stadium is a stadium squeezed into too small of a space. Tickets lines were not lines, but instead masses of people squeezed together into one mass ! Crowd was very drunk and very loud . The georgia fans seemed prepared for an ass cutting that never happened .

If you think that now, can you imagine how much nicer you would think it is if we (like Georgia) also spent $33,000,000 in upgrades in the past 8 years?

WBS was renovated in 1996. Sanford stadium was renovated in 1994, 2003, and 2004. BDS was renovated in 1998, 2006, and 2010. BHG was renovated in 2003 and 2011. Neyland was renovated in 2006, 2008, 2010.

ETC...

I've been to Sanford a few times and I've never felt it shake like WB. WB is more intimidating to other teams. Especially if we are playing good. I don't know how intimidating it will be with the product we put on the field yesterday.

Someone needs to show this stat to the AD. We are falling behind I feel like, even though we are making progress on the field, we are EXTREMELY slow at everything else. But the other thing about those other schools, they are national brands. The georgia G, the ut T, and the alabama A are all way more recognizable by anyone across the country than our logo. Not saying we need a change of logo, but what makes those symbols a national brand is one thing:

National Championship.

Until we get there, we will not be renovating WB on any grand scale like those other schools. They have through the roof merchandise sales because of those brands. Carolina, not so much.
