  • 2007: Terry Don Phillips backs down from his statement of November 29:
Yesterday I sent an e-mail and posted on our web site my expression that we did not condone the billboard on I-26 in Columbia. There has been reaction on both sides of this issue. While I still hold the basic opinion that was expressed, I should have stated that I recognize that in a rivalry such as this--both sides, whenever the opportunity presents itself, are going to take shots at one another. And, not necessarily because of poor sportsmanship-but, rather, that's the nature of the rivalry. Accordingly, I do owe a public apology to the Jackson family and to those that took offense. Even though I stand by my initial reasoning regarding sportsmanship issues, I recognize that my action was a mistake in how I handled this issue as well as the wording of the message.
Again, my apology. Terry Don Phillips
