    The behavior of our students at tonight's soccer game, against NC State, was deplorable. I understand cheering for your team, but cursing and spitting at players from the opposing team is never acceptable. My daughter was there and as a Carolina student , was utterly embarrassed at the behavior of the other students.

    wow...if fans can get close enough to spit on the players i may go to the clemson game!

    j/k

    if this all happened, i think it is more a reflection of this generation. google drug arrests at clemson and college of charleston...apparently, the game has changed everywhere. they get ripped and act like idiots and then take a few mind refocusing meds to get straight for classes.

    or...its this new women's soccer issue in the US....which may be real.....they are animals!

    If you know how the stands are, they are right behind the benches

    Our students spit on the opponents at a women's soccer game ?

    Sounds like Willy B will be rockin this fall.

    I love the "my daughter was appalled by the behavior" like all Carolina fans collectively raised every undergrad student. It's an indictment of the generation and their geography - not the school.

    Having said that - UGA and clemmer fans are jerks.

    It's a generational thing, it's not just our students. It's an epidemic across the country with kids these days.

    I really hope this SJW movement crap doesn't make it's way here and stays up in the northeast. There's no such thing as a difference of opinion, free speech without harassment, or following basic logic anymore.

    3-0 Carolina. The OP should have mentioned it. Apparently soccer matches are getting pretty rowdy. Who knew.

    Not nice, of course, but please advise your daughter NOT to go on football road trips to Georgia, LSU, Kentucky, Florida or Clemson. The student and fan behavior thing at many college sports events has gone viral.

    Btw, last time I visited NC State's Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh, I had to avoid getting hit by liquor . . . bottles!

    Do we have the cover over the bench like Europe?

    If someone was spitting, they need an ass-beating. The cursing, meh. I wouldn't mind some vulgar soccer chanting.

    Yeah, if you don't like foul language (not necessarily condoning it) you probably shouldn't go to our home football games either. Shoot, I remember watching UGA warm up on our field before the 2010 game and the entire student section screaming "F---- you, Georgia" that could be heard throughout the stadium.

    The Occupy Wallstreet movement made its way here during football season a few years back. People were worried they'd come start trouble with fans at the game but I didn't see any trouble, the just stayed at the state house and slept on the lawn. The amount of cops that game was insane!

    Man I'm old. It used to just be "Go! Fight! Win! Kick ***!" when I was a student. The opposing teams fans coming into the student section to start crap was always entertaining though.

    This is another thing that pisses off the Clemmies and the Jawjie crowd - yelling '$&@! Ca-ro-li-na' is simply too many syllables for your average drunk (or sober) Redneck, but we can really let it rip with '$&@! Clemson' or
    '$&@! Georgia' LOL!

    Do some google searching on 'soccer tifo'. College fans have nothing on the crazy #$#$ those guys come up with.

    I've always said that if PETA ever tries to have a big protest in Columbia about the Gamecock mascot... I was going to show up right next to them with a booth/truck selling hamburgers with a big banner that says 'Meat for Feat'. A charity drive to shoe the homeless.

    Cursing offends you?

    The F word comes into these children's homes every day through cable satellite.

    I think every movie now has a quota for the lead actor to say GD at least 20 times. Indeed, you don't need cable to hear GD. It comes right at you on network tv.

    Not surprised. I was referring to college soccer in the U.S. I know how crazy soccer fans are around the world.

    I saw this on three separate occasions from a UGA fan, 2 Kentucky fans, and several LSU fans. All 3 incidents resulted in an a$$ beating and/or police escort . My very first home game as a student is when the UGA guy got mashed. He was walking past the student section in a UGA jersey taunting and cussing and smiling with his girlfriend close behind looking mortified and embarrassed. At first everyone just booed and jawed but then someone on the front row said something that pissed off the UGA douchebag and he turned around and bowed up to the Carolina guy. Big mistake. The Carolina guy immediately knocked him out without hesitation. I mean literally knocked him out. The cops showed up quickly but too late to identify who had hit him. Anyway, he got exactly what he asked for. The girlfriend was inconsolable.

    Second time was when we played Kentucky on a Thursday night game, and this is when Kentucky was ranked like 8th or something. Anyway, 2 guys wearing Kentucky gear were sitting on the top row for the entire first half. I believe they were USC students, but UK fans. They received some innocent taunts, it was just Kentucky after all, but nothing serious. But in the 3rd quarter the game got intense and the UK kids started getting too comfortable and obnoxious. A chant of "Get the f*** out" started throughout the entire student section and things quickly spiraled out of control. A shoving match started with some nearby students until the cops came up and escorted the UK kids out. The UK kids were furious and flipped everyone off on the way down. They got bombarded with drinks and water bottles. The cops got rained on too. A few USC students got arrested after that.

    The LSU incident was the most intense. Three guys in LSU gear sitting on the front row, clearly not USC students and probably not students of any kind. These were big fat guys too. I'm not sure what led up to this particular incident, but before the game even started there was an all out brawl right behind the end zone. Shirts were ripped off, there were blood stains all over the concrete, and obviously multiple arrests were made. One LSU guy, who I assume was the instigator, was beat up really bad. Eyes swollen, lip busted, head bleeding, etc.

    Two points to this:
    1. Never go into any student section with opposing-team gear on. And certainly don't talk trash. The combination of hot weather, copious amounts of alcohol, and thousands of 18-22 year olds with raging hormones in an already intense setting can turn a nice football Saturday into a violent mob scene very quickly.

    2. Kids will be kids.

    Apparently Websters is scrambling to change all the definitions of such words since they don't mean what we thought they meant.

    I know what you mean. Sometimes fans go too far. I remember attending the football game in which we beat UT. It was the year Phil was fired as head coach. We were about 3 rows from the field (UT side) and one of our young fans spent 45 minutes shouting hardcore obscenities at the coaching staff and players. Finally an older gentlemen (GC fan) stood up several seats over and told the young man to sit down and shut up or he would get security. There's just no sense it that kind of behavior.

    I love rowdy women... The next thing you know, they will start ripping off their shirts after scoring... And I'm not talking about in the game... ;)

    There is no love lost between NC State and Carolina...

    This is nothing new... One of my co-workers played soccer in college in the early 90's and he said we were the worst place to come to. Fans would scream profanity, spit, throw beer and cans at them. Who knew we had such rowdy soccer fans, call us the Sumter St. Hooligans. I love it, keep it up lads!!

    The response to this game is more concerning to me than the actions themselves. We do not want to be "those type of fans" do we?

    When I used to have season tickets our section started "turning over" as folks got old and gave them up. Most of the newer fans fit right in, but we had a couple of groups of redneck who would get drunk before the game and holler obscenities and genuinely makes themselves into asses and everybody else miserable. I stopped taking my young daughters with me because I didn't want them to be subjected to the language.

    I haven't been in a fight . . . well, pretty much ever, if that means I actually hit somebody else (my brother doesn't count). . Well, I almost got into one during one game when a guy two rows back kept screaming curses at our coaches, our players, etc. I eventually turned on and told him that nobody was happy, but that he wasn't helping the situation at all. Well, this little drunk tries to come down the two rows to get into it with me, actually trying to climb between the nice older couple who sat between us. One of his friends grabbed him and pulled him back, and his wife lit into him like you wouldn't believe. Lots of other fans around me thanked me when the guy left his seat a little while later.
