I'm giving serious thought to getting rid of DirecTV. I'm happy with the service, but I just don't watch enough TV to justify the $100ish per month. If it weren't for being able to watch Gamecock football, I would have cut it a long time ago.
Has anyone else run into this problem? Can I watch live Gamecock football games online with the All Access pass they sell at Gamecocksonline.com? It doesn't seem to tell you what is included until after you fill out all your info. If not through USC, can I watch games through espn3.com or a similar service?
Any help is appreciated.
NO football. If it is on TV or away it would not be eligible for all access . That pretty much covers every game.

You cannot access ESPN3 without a cable subscription.
I think your only option is offshore betting websites that stream games [hint, hint].
Go to a sports bar and pay $50 - $100 tab every time you want to watch a game.

You may want to consider cutting back on something less essential like food or water.
mmm mmm mmm "South Carolina Gamecocks" Good
-My dish box recently died. It happened 12/31 So they didn't ship a replacement till 1/2 that I got on 1/4 - of course this was bowl week. Well just happens I got a >$100 PC I had hooked up to the TV (added a $15.00 HDMI video card. Well to make a long story short - I watched every game, even those blacked out on ESPN3 in my area, and we had plenty of other shows to watch. If nothing else it proved that a TV hookup wasn't needed. (I have cable internet paid for by work)
If I need to I would have no issues with cutting off the dish. If you know where to look you can find anything you want to see.
and not counting fines for fighting, drunk and disorderly etc. and if you decide to have a few adult beverages and johnny law just happens to pull you over for a burnt out tag light another 10 grand for dui, I decided 25 yrs. ago to watch games at home and stay my ass out of the streets, has worked out just fine. Go to all of the home games and my lovely wife drives us home. No harm no foul.
What plan do you have? I have all the ESPN/Fox Sports South/NFL Network/etc for just around $70 a month. Isn't there a way you can downgrade?
Also, if your contract runs out soon with DirecTV, you can negotiate with them and get an absolute crapload of stuff (including like $10-15 credits each month for a year, free ESPN Gameplan & Sunday Ticket, etc) just to stay with them.
I think some ISPs (like Windstream) enable you to sign into ESPN3 with just a broadband account, but I can't remember if every USC game is on ESPN3 or not.
You can get a few of the games over the air. Assuming you're keeping internet access (I sure hope you are), get someone who has a cable package to set up a spare email address on their account (usually each subscription is entitled to 5-10 email accounts). That way, you can log into ESPN3 using the remote access and watch all other games.
Your other option is to just drop down to the bare bones, cable from the wall Time Warner to cover ESPN, ESPN2, and Fox Sports South. Those three combined with CBS and the SEC Network affiliates covered all of our games this year. In some markets right now, Time Warner is offering a $50 bundle with Turbo Internet and Standard Cable, so that's something you could call them about.
Antenna in attic dialed in for locals. Gets you hd CBS etc for games not on espn. Smart phone (iPhone) airplay to the Apple TV box, find a tw cable account, work, friend, or family, and use their account number to register for the watch espn app. Justin.tv is the fall back if you cannot lock down watch espn. I have been cable/satellite free for over three years and have never looked back. I get charleston, Wilmington, and Florence local channels from the old school 65 inch wingspan antenna in my attic. Little work in getting it set up but it has paid for it self 30 fold.
