No more of this from the South Carolina Athletics Department Please

I would like to ask that the USC Athletic Department and Gamecock Club never solicit the purchase of a t-shirt like this again nor support its' creation! Come on; let’s act like we have won a game before!
I can understand a street vendor or local t-shirt shop putting forth a t-shirt like this to make a quick buck but for me to get 2 emails from USC advertising this t-shirt and its’ purchase…well it is plain stupid.

We are better than that and need to act like this game was not a fluke or one hit wonder. Beating teams like Ole Miss needs to become the standard at Carolina and one way to create that culture/attitude is to not put forth t-shirts like the above.

Agree or Disagree?

What I can't understand is why someone would spend $15 on a shirt that commemorates a game that no one will have NO significance in a year. They wouldn't make them if no one would by them.

Much like Feathered Warrior, there are very, very few individual games that would motivate me to buy a t-shirt. If we beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa, I'm not going to buy a t-shirt.

The only regular season game I can envision purchasing a shirt for is a win over an undefeated 2009 Florida. Even if we go into that game 8-2, it would be an all-time shocker of a team and player chasing history.

I'd also buy multiple shirts for any blow out (24 or more) win over Clemson - one for me, and several for mean spirited gifts.
