Default ESPN - No More SCAR

I noticed on ESPN that our abbreviation has been changed to just "SC" as opposed to SCAR. I have no idea when this happened or why, but it is a most welcome change! I'm thinking the change happened within the past week or so, since I remember seeing SCAR on previous game summaries.

Here's an example from the Carolina - North Carolina game, or "UNC vs SC" as they have it listed:

That's pretty awesome, and hopefully we'll see it used on our game graphics tomorrow. SC is the state's abbreviation and the obvious choice. (Southern Cal can have USC if they want, but they can't claim SC too.) I've always thought SCAR was pretty dumb.

The marketing department said they wanted us to be labeled SC. I remember people on here upset because it didn't say USC and that SC was too familiar with NC.

The announcers in every game we play call us USC and Carolina, which most people outside the state perceive as So Cal and UNC. I like being labeled SC, gives us a solo identity and it absolutely is not "familiar with NC" I live here in Tar Hole country, nooooooooooooooooo one calls them NC, we are in the clear with the state abbreviation.

Great change if it actually sticks. We will see what they have next to us on the score during the game Saturday. Didn't it say SCAR in the Georgia game?

They could use USC, SC or Carolina and everyone would know who they were talking about if there is a little number (usually one that is lower than 10) beside that name and its coming up on half decade of that.

Ah. Forgot they use the longer names now. I was at the game so I must have just seen SCAR on the bottom line or something. Thanks for the pic

I'm with ya here in the Tarhole state and frequent Wrightsville Beach quite a lot as well for fishing. Still wear my Carolina gear and love the eye rolling from these snob ass Hole fans. NC State fans are cool though because they hate UNC.
