So it looks like the home & home w/ Tennessee got "shelved". That's pretty gay if you ask me...I was totally looking forward to going to the UT game @ Knoxville just to say I'd been to that stadium once in my life.

http://www.thestate.com/mld/thestate/sports/14721307.htm

Quote :
"Officials from South Carolina and North Carolina State are discussing a deal that would pair the schools in a home-and-home football series in 2008 and 2009.

If the two-year deal is finalized, the Wolfpack would visit Williams-Brice Stadium in 2008, with USC traveling to Raleigh in ‘09. Vaughn said N.C. State is looking to fill a couple of future dates after a home-and-home series with Tennessee was shelved."


Discuss. I'd love to play South Carolina, but don't ditch the UT games in order for it to happen

I'm pretty sure it never graced this forum...could be wrong.

And no, I'm pretty sure CHUCK had everything to do w/ the Tenn games getting dropped. He doesn't want to not go to his precious "bowl games"...

Ummm in 2008/2009 South Carolina will be the better team.

I mean I hate Spurrier but damn if he isn't a coach.

Fullmer is going downhill.

It's not about the "better team" per se. Even during the Notre Dame time w/ the now-Washington guy as their coach (name has escaped me), it would've been sweet to play Notre Dame.

"Tennessee" is just a football school that demands respect/TV time. South Carolina....not so much yet.

south carolina will actually be better for tv, imo, because of spurrier. the media loves him, and amato too for that matter.

i still would prefer the matchups with tennessee. i see them as a rival of sorts.

I hope not. UT is 2nd on my list. I couldn't pull for one of my teams to lose each year.

guess the "Suck My Gamecock" chant will have to be revived...
and maybe it'll be nationally televised, so the sports media can rip us for that too...

That is some bullshit!

I was really looking forward to that game in 2008 in Knoxville.

I grew up in Knoxville and have been to about a hundred games there. If you haven't been to a game in Neyland Stadium, you should. It is one of the best college venues in the country.

Screw Chuck for ducking that h&h (if thats what happened).

and if it's Tenn that ducked out?

sidenote... is it really hard to type out NCSU or NC State? do they ahve to keep refering to us as a "North Carolina series" in that article?

i mean, would they like it if someone refered to a series with Clemson as taht South Carolina Series... or a series with South Carolina State (not that anyone cares about SCS)

Off topic, but why have South Carolina and North Carolina never played each other in basketball and football in recent memory (15 years)?

Well, if UT "shelved" the h&h then fuck them, but I don't know why they would unless they had to make room for a Texas, Ohio State, Miami, etc.

We are such a bad team to play. Nothing very good comes out of beating us, becuase we are not very recognizable, and if they lose then its another L for them. We are at the point, like a lot of teams, that we are a dangerous average team, and no good comes from playing teams like that for the big boys, ie Tennessee, Florida, USC, ND, etc.

I'm talking out of my ass here, but I think it has something to do w/ some animosity over SC's departure from the ACC

N.C. State is like Clemson. A pile of crap. We need to find another quality opponent. I still have not forgotten the year we got screwed in Raleigh. N.C. never will be up to USC in anything facilities, academics or anything, like Clemson they are the second best of the second fiddles.

i drove past Williams-Bryce last weekend. Its probably the 2nd ugliest college stadium I've ever seen up close, with #1 being the craptacular home of Vanderbilt football, whatever their stadium is.

I'll take this, but only so we can have a shot at beating Spurrier.

Well we're not trying to drop ECU. In fact, we've scheduled them for like the next 6 years if I heard that correctly. We think the same thing, but we're not afraid to play them, and its actually a fun game to go to. The ECU series got cancelled a few years back because of fighting on the field and between the fans in the parking lot...it got a little too ugly.

I think Fowler is the only one that wanted to see us play ECU.

^ Yep. Chuck was pretty against the series, actually. I can't blame him based on the crap that'll likely happen at the stadium(s).

well, i like the fact that we are trying to schedule some big boys

for now we'll have to consistently beat the big boys we will actually play, like FSU & Miami. Winning against BC & Va Tech and not losing to Carolina would be key too.

presumably, if we played well enough to be worth scheduling there would at least be a chance we would play VT or Miami in the championship game...
not a good chance, but a chance...

(not a chance this year though)
