Why The Gamecocks?
The Gamecocks play in the Southeastern Conference, with is arguably the most competitive, difficult conference in NCAA football. They compete against the Florida Gators, the Georgia Bulldogs, the South Carolina Gamecocks, the Tennessee Volunteers, the Vanderbilt Commodores, the Alabama Crimson Tide, the Arkansas Razorbacks, the Auburn Tigers, the LSU Tigers, the Mississippi State Bulldogs, the Ole Miss Rebels, and the Texas A&M Aggies. This is hardly an easy league to compete in for those who follow college football. That makes watching the Gamecocks play far more exciting, as you know they are playing very tough teams! South Carolina tickets are a guarantee for exciting football.
For most events, you can find tickets from the source if you're quick enough. If not, or if the event you want to see is very popular, it may not be possible to get box office tickets. There are ways of getting the tickets you want even then! Gamecock tickets for football, for example, can be found right now on the the "reseller market" by ticket brokers. Buying sold out events used to be risky, but with a broker, you have the guarantee of your money back if the tickets aren't legitimate.
The Gamecocks are a popular team, and home games sell out routinely, especially if they are doing well during the season. The Gamecocks finished 11-2 last season, and they won the Capital One Bowl, beating Nebraska 30-13! The Gamecocks are looking good for this year!
Watching The Gamecocks
The Gamecocks are named after Charles Sumter, a revolutionary war hero that had a unique fighting style and tenacity that impressed the British General, who said that he "fought like a Gamecock." Over the years they have lived up to this legacy many times.
The Gamecocks have many rivals, but the two biggest are The Clemson Tigers and the Georgia Bulldogs. Clemson is a rival because it is a South Carolina rivalry. It is, in fact, the biggest sporting event in the state of South Carolina since 1960! The Georgia Bulldog rivalry is a "Border Rivalry" that has been going on since 1894! These and other rivalries with the Gamecocks make their games even more exciting!
