LSU-South Carolina Kickoff Moved

The University of South Carolina’s football game against Louisiana State University will kickoff at 3:30 p.m. EDT from Tiger Stadium (a.k.a. “Death Valley”) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The University of South Carolina’s football game against Louisiana State University will kickoff at 3:30 p.m. EDT from Tiger Stadium (a.k.a. “Death Valley”) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Originally scheduled for 12:00 p.m. EDT at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia, S.C., the game was moved earlier this week due to the Palmetto State’s inability to guarantee public safety and clean drinking water in the aftermath of “Floodmaggedon.”

“I appreciate the spirit of cooperation between LSU and South Carolina to make an appropriate adjustment for the game location in this time of difficulty,” SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said.  “Our prayers and concerns continue to be with people throughout the entire state of South Carolina whose lives have been dramatically impacted by this devastating weather event.”

In addition to the venue and time change, there’s also a television change as well.  ESPN will now broadcast the game nationally, as opposed to a national broadcast on the SEC Network.

As much as we hate to break up this kumbaya moment, it really doesn’t matter where, when or on what channel this game is played.

Why not?

Two words: Leonard Fournette.

Time to finally admit this... October 8, 2015 at 2:27 pm

I’m afraid Tanner is in over his head. First not demanding Spurrier fire the Defensive staff after it was obvious of their incompetence last year…

abnd moving this game to La. is a very amateurish move…

Ray is a GREAT Baseball, coach, where he needs to return…but this is just a move made by someone who is lost.

He is really hurting the USC athletic dept. Time for clearer minds to prevail.

It’s not his job to “demand” Spurrier do anything. It’s up to Spurrier to make the right hires and if he doesn’t and it affects the state of the program, then Tanner has the obligation to make a change.
Moving the game to LSU was a last resort and the only option. You can’t be “lost” in making the only move available to play the game unless you believe the game just shouldn’t be played at all.

As USC’s athletics programs are decomposing; Why am I not surprised you agree w/ Tanner? (:

You can always tell what USC should do by looking at what the liberals and Dumbasses want, and doing the opposite…Tanner and Spurrier are listening to the idiots…

FITSNews (who is perpetually wrong about everything) blamed Spurrier, not the coaches after last eyar’s collpase in football…

And The State newspaper literally begged Spurrier not to fore Ward, Adams or Brown…and you see how that has worked out…

I’m sure you coaching the Gamecocks would make them as successful as your blog. Just what they need, another no-win season.

Ray Tanner is in over his head but moving the game to Baton Rouge is not an example of it.

If a USC fan drives all the way to LA will LSU provide some trash filled grass parking lots in case he hooks up with a shit faced cock fan? That would give it that Home game appeal.

Why is gametime newsworthy? The only different is the Dirtpeckers get their asses kicked 3.5 hours later.

At least THE University of South Carolina had the common sense to move there home game during a disaster. I see South Western Pickens Tech couldn’t be bothered to do that.

Why would they have moved their game? What issues came up during or right after the game? Had USCe played Thursday night it would have been a home game.

Correct it’s in Baton Rouge. Tater Tech copied their mascot, stadium name and basically their entire program for other schools. BTW, Pitchfork says hi.

During preseason training, a Clemson football lineman married one of the team’s cheerleaders.

The coach was a bit surprised and remarked to his star football player, “You are such a big, burly guy. Why in the world did you marry such a tiny, petite woman? She is no bigger than your hand.”

“That’s right, Coach,” replied the lineman. “But, she’s much better!”

The location and the game time may change, but the outcome won’t.
