This is #### funny from FGF!

Gamecock football started on Christmas eve in Charleston 1892 against Furman. That was the first game. We got our first win in year 3 on November 2, 1895. Beat Clemson for the first time in 1896 in which case they went on a run and won the next 7 in a row....It may just be me, but that's a long #### time to be getting start3d on winning a championship. I think our battery maybe be dead

Weren't they the Panthers at the start ?
I can't imagine changing from a fearsome cat as your mascot to an animal that is frantic , used for food and eats out of it's own scat .

It's not just a modern dilemma apparently , they've been making poor decisions as an institution since Benjamin Harrison was president .

But your point is well taken. Why drop that name to become a chicken?

The official reason for the name change was that they did it to honor General Thomas Sumter who was known as the "Carolina Gamecock" because of his fighting style.

I think it had more to do with what their supporters did on Friday and Saturday nights after they got a few drinks in them.

If I ran UofSuc, I would change the mascot from a chicken to a COUGAR. Sounds way better that chickens.

CofC is the Cougars (originally the Maroons, which has a different meaning on this “bored”), so SCar would have to go with a different cat...maybe the Sylvesters.

Anything they pick will be damaged by the new association with Sackerlina .

Might as well stay with the Dirtpeckers .

Wouldn't 1895 be their 4th year?

Or they could call themselves the #### Roaches. Would fit perfectly with their stadium and they could still use Go ##### as their beloved battle cry.
