State Selling Seats From Carolina Coliseum

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - The state Property Surplus Office sells a lot of old or unused items, but one item caught our attention.

The office is now selling the seats from the Carolina Coliseum.

"It was just an energized building the fans were just so into the game," Mary Ann Powell.

A lot of memories were made in the Carolina Coliseum, a place that some call the place that Coach Frank McGuire built.

It opened back in 1968 and Dennis Powell was there for that memorable night.

"The team I was on was the first time to play in the Coliseum and that is the infamous game with John Roach who scored the game winning shot against Auburn," said Dennis Powell.

More than 40 years later, the state is now selling most of the seats from the lower level.

One of those seats is where Powell's then girlfriend and now Wife... Mary Ann sat cheering him on.

"I came down for the North Carolina game when he was a senior and I sat behind the bench, like row seven where a lot of the other players girlfriends and families sat," said Mary Ann.

The seats are now being removed from the Coliseum and the state is selling a set of three seats for $60 dollars.

Knowing how faithful the Gamecock fans are, Powell says they will fly off the shelves.

"I think they will really embrace that and I think they will really buy those seats up," said Dennis.
