Default Why don't we sell our basketball jerseys?

I was looking around online after the game the other day and I saw that almost every division I team sells jerseys but us. Anyone know why?

If they're anything like the football jerseys, they'd cost $80 a pop.

are you talking about authentic game worn jerseys? or just the stuff like UA/Nike/Adidis sell to the consumer?

Probably because for a while the culture of our school was "football is the only thing that matters," which is stupid.

There were #2 Devan Downey jerseys at the Russell House bookstore and a few #44 Muldrows too.

Otherwise, the biggest shirt that's been sold over the years is those horrible Garnet Army camos.

Haven't you heard? Nobody likes our jerseys... Why try to sell them if nobody is going to buy them?

I can name the entire team and I have season football tickets, too. I'm not sure what point you were trying to make.

What are the odds he finds you at the game?
You're called an exception.
I'm not happy about as I love the sport as well, but it's true.

Our basketball fan base isn't as large right now.
You have your diehards/loyal fans who watch and attend every game (which is safe to say exist on this board-post in this forum) then you have the ones who will only care if we are winning.

Then you'll get a bunch a people that tell you, "basketball sucks" or " I hate basketball" who would be saying different if we had a competitive/bubble team yearly. (IMO)

I have more to add about the whole school support etc but I'll quit where I am.

Also to add OP says he sees other schools making jerseys, but we do not.
Just checking, Bama sells them on their website. Pretty sure that school cares about only football. Also checked Auburn's site who's pretty similar to Bama, and they sell them too.
I remember seeing our last year on G&B Traditions and the school site, maybe they're waiting for the new ones to come in?

Ok sorry for that, go on with the conversation.

Yeah, I know all of their names because I go to the games and I read on CockyTalk.


As to your point, there's also a good chance that the average football fan at the game can't get past naming Clowney, Shaw, Ellington, and Thompson. The folks I sit with at games prove this point repeatedly. The majority of gamecock fans, and it's probably true for fanbases as a whole, don't bother to learn the numbers and name of players beyond a few key ones. These people need to visit CockyTalk more often. lol...

Columbia is fairweather with USC sports outside of football. If the basketball team was really good this year, guarantee people will come out in droves to CLA.

It's sad because people say they won't go to games because "the team sucks" but basketball is the sport where homecourt advantage makes the biggest difference. If we could sell out CLA every night it would be an AWESOME boost for recruiting.
