Default Was Coastal Carolina ever part of the USC system?

I was talking with my brother about CCU this morning, and the topic of their status as an independent university came up. I don't know if it's just a coincidence with the similarities of mascots and the state both USC and CCU are in, but my brother and I were trying to figure out if CCU used to be part of the USC system. Does anyone know? On CCU's website, it says the school was founded in 1954 as Coastal Carolina Junior College and became independent in 1993. But I don't know if that's different than being part of the USC system.

Yes they were part of the USC system. That is why there have been so many threads here on CT about the bad blood between them and USC and why we have not played them. Here is their website talking about it. http://www.coastal.edu/giving/affiliations.html

School was founded in 1954 As coastal carolina jc as a branch of the college of Charleston. In 1960 became the coastal Carolina regional campus of USC. 1975 first four year degree given from coastal carolina college. 1993 becomes coastal Carolina university.

As usc-coastal were the trojans. The chanticleer was chosen as a connection to past as well as still being independent. I went to both CCU and USC

USC-Coastal were the Chanticleers as well. They adopted the Chanticleer nickname in the mid 60s I believe. It was chosen primarily because of its similarity to the Gamecock. There was a lot of discussion about changing the nickname when they went independent to completely have no connection to the USC past.

Yep, a lot of people around here have diplomas that read The University of South Carolina at Coastal Carolina College with the USC seal and all on them

Coastal was told by USC Columbia that they could have every major athletic program with the exception of football. Coastal wanted a football program which ultimately led them to leave the USC umbrella...... And that is why it has taken so long for the 2 teams to schedule a football game.

This is absolutely false. They left the USC system because they just became to large and wanted to become their own university. They didn't get a football program for 10 years after that.

Default Re: Was Coastal Carolina ever part of the USC system?

I'm glad this has been cleared up. I remember when I would go to visit my father in Socastee and would go by the back entrance to CCU. They had a small sign with the old version of their mascot, and I remember thinking, "That's neat. It's like the beach has their own little version of USC," so it's nice to know my childish thoughts weren't off base.

I still have family who live in Socastee, Murrells Inlet, and Little River, so I've always had somewhat of a soft spot for CCU. That being said, when I was talking about it with my brother yesterday -- the one in Socastee -- I told him, "But I still hope we beat them by 60 today." He later sent me a text and said, "You should start gambling!"

Most definitely. Upstate is already pushing 6,000 students and is the fastest growing school in the state. I'd be willing to bet that Upstate is its own independent school within 10 years.
