When your athletic department doesn't have any corporate sponsorships....you still have to pay the bills...NSU is licking their chops...They get us after we take bad/physical beatings from 2 D-1 teams.... :(

Pitbull, do you ever have anything positive to say. You continue to critize the program. We recognize the Athletic Department is not perfect so at lease we can support it's positive efforts. What have you done lately to support the program? Stop drinking the "Haterade" and do something positive.

ExPro60...You don't know me but I will says this...I love SCSU but I hate our administration. They are rotten to the core.....Cooper should have been fired the 1st time...but they brought him back..Maurice Washington is a walking cancer..A certain AD hasn't raised any funds since she took over..But I guess you are ok with mediocrity.....So you can think what you want about me...IDGAD! WITH BULLDOG TENACITY!

Pibull, don't be afraid of Norfolk State. Last season was a fluke. If SCSU had stopped trying to be a spread offense team that day they would have beaten NSU. And,NSU comes to Orangeburg. Arizona is not a physical team (never has been) and Texas A&M is no Texas Longhorns.They scare nobody!

The combined 2011 conference records of the teams scheduled for October and November is 16 - 32. Only Florida A&M had a winning record. This schedule would be awesome if the Bulldogs weren't playing 4 of those 6 games on the road. They will play 7 total away. Bulldogs are going to be Road Warriors this season.

Well, NSU plays Ohio before they play us. SEC teams play tough competition week in and week out. If you are good, you should have nothing to worry about.

Arizona was 4-8 last year so we can get a win in AZ.

Pittbull, I love SCSU too and I am a lomg time financial supporter of the university's athletic and accademic programs. I've been a season ticket holder for the past 20 plus years (and don't live in the state of SC) I personally sponsored a player in the Lift-A-Bulldog program... I also purchased a brick of the Bulldog wall. I am not "ok with mediocrity" and don't agree with a lot of the things the administration does but I won't use the MEDIA to CRITICIZE the administration or the university.

I commend you but sometimes the media is the only way those folks that occupy space at State will listen.....You noticed I said occupy space...because most of them don't do squat and now Cooper is cleaning house...I have to laugh to keep from crying..We have become the biggest joke in SC....It's enough to make a grown man cry...
