I think we know which one was founded first
Which must piss off Scar fans even more. Sorry brah.
Actually the cocks trophy case should really piss em off
Meh....just means we know who the real USC is. Carry on
Scar got a couple of baseball trophies recently...
only 10 more to catch up to USC

Yeah - Southern Cal
Start a new thread and ask the question - you will not like the answer
I don't have to start a thread. All I have to do is look at the founded date.
Time for you to go see the priest yet?
Never dealt with you....so that should probably tell you no. Not a good memory eh?
Meh....try getting your baseball program relevant again.
Spurrier cheating? Do explain. We don't even recruit well really.

What are you talking about?
Just curious.....when was the last time a South Carolina alumni hit a HR in an MLB game?

I swear, you are the first So Cal who gets it. The guy is just trolling the media
Justin Smoak hit 19 last year for Seattle
Ever watch Sportscenter? Notice all the coverage of JBJ? Red Sox organization, #1 recruit? Scott Boras is his agent.
He probably sucks though.
This. All these years later, SOS takes a shot at another team and Nole fans come pouring out like Steve just kicked over their anthill.
I downloaded a "whiny PMS drivel filter" app and see that it happens to work really well with your posts. Brace yourself for what oughta be a Super heavy flow.
Not even close to what Southern Cal did. Keep trying....
I feel sorry for the people who change you daily.
Priest for what?
When your coach has to whine and complain about not getting attention = irrelevant program.
I mean c'mon the cocks are not even in the top 50 in winning % as a football program and you are trying to compare yourself to USC who is in the top 10 all-time....it's embarrassing.
I'll let you go look up which university was founded first.
BTW....is this the real Leppy or his friends lol
You should chose your words a little more carefully...
From the Official Site of the University of South Carolina:
In 2001, the University celebrated the bicentennial of its charter, but 2005 also marks a watershed anniversary: 200 years since the first classes began at South Carolina College, as it was then known. Carolina has endured the Civil War and Reconstruction, closings, and name changes. Permanently chartered in 1906 as the University of South Carolina, it grew throughout the 20th century and today is building its reputation as a cutting-edge research institution."
So Car did not even become a "university" till 1906...while The University of Southern California was founded in 1880 as a university. Openings and closings, name changes don't count.
Also from the So Car official site:
Regarding official color change:
"The decision is part of the marketing strategy by USC to more strongly brand the South Carolina Gamecocks as a distinct entity in the sports marketplace. Research by South Carolina found that on the heels of North Carolina’s basketball success of the last half century, surveys have found most sports fans nationally identify “Carolina” as North Carolina.” It also found that Southern Cal, one of the nation’s preeminent sports programs, is both nationally and even regionally here in the South more closely identified with USC than South Carolina is."

Our biggest rival is not UCLA, it's Notre Dame.
You auburn people seem to just talk and talk and talk...all I can dog you with is our last meeting...a shut out in your house, with a first time starting QB, playing his first college game...lol.

THE “OTHER” USC SPEAKS
Unlike bloggers who have sucked off of the University of South Carolina’s taxpayer-funded teat, we don’t think it’s especially newsworthy that one of the state’s most hare-brained higher ed boondogglers has decided to open a Twitter account.
Of course we’re not Brad Warthen – who devoted several hundred words earlier this month to University of South Carolina president Harris Pastides’ decision to start tweeting.
Anyway, now that this monumental scoop has been unearthed … how is Pastides’ Twitter career progressing?
Let’s take a look …
“In L.A. for meetings … driving past ‘USC West.’” Pastides tweeted last week, referring to the University of Southern California. “Thought about what a merger might look like, but don’t think the colors would blend. Bad idea.”
Needless to say our founding editor Will Folks (a.k.a. Sic Willie) was all over that.
“You don’t think cocks and Trojans go well together?” he tweeted back to Pastides.
Penile humor aside, though, we’re much more interested in Pastides’ “USC West” comment – which would seem to imply that the University of Southern California and the University of South Carolina are equals, and that there is some universe in which the former might consider partnering with the latter.
Is that so?
According to the latest U.S. News and World Report national college rankings, “USC West” was ranked No. 23 in the nation. Our “USC?” It’s ranked No. 111.
In football, Southern Cal has won 11 national championships and 38 conference championships. South Carolina? We’ve won a single conference championship (ACC – 1969) and one divisional championship (SEC East – 2010).
In baseball, the Gamecocks have won back-to-back national titles. Impressive, right? Not compared to the dozen national championships USC has won.
Also, while Southern Cal isn’t known for its men’s basketball program, the Trojans have reached the NCAA tournament four times in the last five years. “USC East” hasn’t made the “Big Dance” since 2004 – and hasn’t won a tournament game since 1974. And although USC is a woeful 6-21 this season – they beat Darrin Horn’s Gamecocks 63-60 back in November.
Is there anything the Gamecocks do better than the Trojans?
Well we “raw dog” them in international business … although this award-winning program (and the rest of USC’s core academic departments) play second fiddle to Pastides’ ongoing obsession with speculative “economic development” deals.
The brainchild of Pastides and S.C. House Speaker Bobby Harrell, the “Innovista” project has already cost taxpayers at least $150 million (including over $40 million in state funds). The project was supposed to usher in the “hydrogen economy of the future” and bring “thousands of high-paying jobs” to downtown Columbia, S.C., but it has failed spectacularly on all counts.
Amazingly, this boondoggle is still being funded by state and local taxpayers to the tune of millions of dollars a year – and that’s just its direct appropriations. The facility also recently received a $154 million bailout from Columbia, S.C. taxpayers.
“Tweet that,” Harris.
