Opp vs Opp Week 1


Historical South Carolina vs North Carolina

http://football.stassen.com/cgi-bin/records/opp-opp.pl?start=1869&end=2012&team1=South+Carolina&team2=North+Carolina

UNC leads the overall series 32-17-4

Last 15 games (since 1967 when Dietzel arrived), SCAR has gone 10-5 vs UNC.

Last five games SCAR is 4-1 vs UNC.

Last twenty years we are 5-2 vs UNC at home, 5-4 vs UNC in Chapel Hill. (You read that right. We've played them two more times at their place than ours over the past twenty years.)

UNC pretty-much owned us until Dietzel arrived in '67. When we started kicking their asses regularly they started whining and wanting to change the rules so they grouped together with their Tobacco Road crowd and changed the rules to affect Dietzel and SCAR ... which eventually led to Dietzel pulling us out of the ACC in 1972. (it had a lot to do with Freddie Soloman for the those that are not as old as I who may not remember those days.)

re: Opp vs Opp Week 1


Since the end of the old Southern Conference in 1952 when USC, UNC, and the other founding members left to form the ACC, UNC is 14-13 against USC. That's a span of 60 years. Until that point, UNC held a 20-4-4 edge over USC in the series. The vast majority of their dominance over USC came prior to WWII.....

cfbdatawarehouse shows that USC and UNC also played each other in 1904 and 1908, which are not reflected by Stassen's history. According to that, the overall series history is 34-17-4. I refer to cfbdatawarehouse's stats, as both the USC and UNC official athletics websites agree that UNC has 34 series wins instead of 32...

re: Opp vs Opp Week 1


I'm going to email the guy at Stassen to see if we can get those other two games updated ... we've corresponded before and he's a really nice guy always wanting to make that data base perfect.
