"It's a great time to be a Gamecock!"
It seems like the popular debate topic now is compare what we do to what people perceive Alabama does, and then gripe at any discrepancy between the methods. If anyone could just go out and replicate Alabama's machine, damn near every program in the country would go do it. It's just not that simple.
When we start selling out every single game in a stadium 25-30% larger than our current size, start packing a full house at our spring game, and bringing in the monetary support that comes with that kind of life or death passion to win behind our program, I'm guessing you'll see our support staff grow to Alabama sized proportions and reach. Until then, we're just not going to match every single thing they do.
A lot of people with a stake our program still have more of an Ole Miss than an Alabama mindset, and that's reflected in ticket sales and giving levels. That might be the overall more healthy mindset to have, but there just shouldn't be this surprise or dissatisfaction when you hear about Alabama spending more money and resources than we do on a particular aspect of their program.
Bama is taking a hit for the four player arrest yesterday. One radio analyst I heard locally here in St. Louis - noted that generally as a group they were four
under achieving 4 and 5 star players - and Saban was probably glad to get rid of them - so he could use the schollies to further reload.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
since you mentioned Joe Harris, is that someone the coaches are looking to bring in in the 2015 class?
