a lot are leaving because they realize their vote is becoming useless in their native state and they want to get away from the high tax, big govt environment. And btw - they do (and will continue to) contribute greatly to the tax revenues and economy of SC. I pretty certain that you would not want to be branded with a SC stereotype - although it would probably be applicable...
as a small child,i travelled with my parents many times through SC in going to florida from ct.and in so doing i became well acquainted with some of the various southern states.when it was time to decide where to go to college,i chose to head south once again and spent my 4 college years at CU.without a doubt one of the best decisions i've made.it's where i learned to appreciate some of life's finer things,like bourbon for instance.after grad school in boston the army in it's infinite wisdom sent me back to SC for 3 more years to ft. jackson(actually a great assignment),so i lived in SC for 7 years,and by osmosis i consider myself at least part South Carolinian.by choice,rather than by accident of birth.after the military i returned to the north because of family considerations.otherwise i just might be living back in Clemson.haven't been able to do that.at least not yet.i have been back for numerous vacations,games,and visits with dear friends,so i do love the state and the people there.both have left me with many treasured memories.so try not to be too harsh with the yankees.some of them just might be South Carolinians at heart,if you scratch them a bit.
Appreciate the love for sc . . . I’m not prejudiced against yankees or anything but i get why people would want them to go back . . . Probably about crowded roads and development more than anything. It’s heartbreaking to see all the high rise condos and hotels going up in Charleston . . . It’s just crazy the pace of change down here right now. I remember when i could smuggle a six pack into the riverdogs and get two tickets for $4 on Tuesdays . . . 14 yrs ago . . . It was just quieter, prettier, better place to live
understand completely.i live in a small town in the real upstate ny about 8-10 miles from vermont.things are changing here rapidly as well.lot of downstaters fleeing the cities and suburbs in ny,nj,and boston as well.feel very fortunate to have lived and grown up in the 50's and 60's.everything then was so much more simpler and honest.
He became very inconsistent, and I think somehow the bond between Honor and himself was broken, and both players were hurt. Honor, though smaller, was better defensively but both were not good at guarding bigger guards. Sad. to see them both go, I think if one had stayed behind and given the responsibility, he might have blossomed?
Not to hate on Al-Amir, but he got way to dependent on shooting the three as his time at Clemson progressed. He did much more driving and scoring his first couple of seasons, while last year he just hunted the three ball all game.
He was a good shooter so when he got hot it helped us win games, but hurt us more than it helped in my opinion. Nothing that can't be replaced, I wish him the best this next season.
