The flame units will be fired as the team enters the field to the traditional “2001: A Space Odyssey” theme that has become synonymous with Gamecock Football.
“We believe this will be the most explosive team entrance in college football,” said Nichols.
“The University of South Carolina is the only NCAA team currently utilizing these effects for football games on this scale,” said Justin Pruett, Show Producer for Pyrotecnico FX. “Use of this type of equipment is more often seen across the NFL.”
Approximately 200-man hours were dedicated to the design, building and testing of the on-field towers, according to Pruett.
“What makes a great entrance is everything that South Carolina does when they come out of that tunnel,” said SEC Network analyst Matt Stinchcomb. “They’ve got a fantastic soundtrack in the Space Odyssey. The fans get wound up and they’re into it. It’s got really everything you’re looking for in a great entrance. It’s almost as if wrestling took its cue from South Carolina.”
For safety reasons, some on-field adjustments will be made for those individuals on the field during the team entrance, including VIPs, recruits, media, the band and cheerleaders.
The " flame units " . Kind of says it all when your talking about USuC football .
They play like their units are on fire . They have the fire extinguishers going off before the " flame units " partly ignite . The fact that they don't even understand the basics of fire prevention techniques tells me that the City of Columbia Fire Marshall probably Coots with the best of them .

"Not even gonna lie. When I saw that, I said, "Yep, we'll lose." Blackout, whiteout, nuts out, etc, etc. SICK OF ALL OF IT. Get coaches that can coach, players that can play and win some freaking football games or shut the program down."
