South Carolina Gamecock fan who appreciates all SEC football.
Champ raves about the o-line so maybe we're all missing something. That said I hope Elliott gets the chance to prove his worth as an HC! I live in Atlanta so I'll go watch a game or two.
I thought Taggart didn't interview! You mean we could have had Taggart and picked Muschamp instead?!?!? Damn.....
Couldn't agree with you more. I meant to say when we get back to running the State on the field. We're a good 3 years off. I see now why people were so pissed at Spurrier.
Disrespectful? No doubt! But I look at it like this... they wouldn't have been able to do it had we been more competitive in the game. The more disrespectful issue was our ineptitude against a well oiled machine. Hats off to Clemson, but fu€% them at the same time. I hope they plaster the score and everything all over the walls of Willy B, the dorms, the weight room, AND the football offices. When we get back to running the State we'all get back to 11 win seasons and competing for titles.
Football players, and basketball players, typically don't go home for Thanksgiving because of games. They'll eat with the coach and team. Love the fact that Champ is practicing on Thanksgiving day. He's really starting to grow on me.
My logic is this... we should be very competitive in the East next year, barring injuries, given the year over year improvement and the obvious lack of talent when compared to UT, UGA, UF, UK. If we can legitimately compete for the East we can compete for the SEC crown. Will we win it? Doubtful. But we should compete.
You can see he's CLEARLY learned from that experience. SC players would run through a wall for him. Will we win a championship? I don't know but I most certainly expect to compete for them on a consistent basis starting next year.
Let's get past Missouri first.
Totally agree with that!
Edge talk aside Missouri is more than capable of walking out of Willy B Saturday with a W! We will have to bring our A game. Period!
Why should he stay in a situation that is no longer beneficial for him? If you could make more money at a new job would you leave immediately or stay through the end of the fiscal year to support your current team and manager because they depend on you? You would most likely leave immediately. Then your old Jon would find a replacement for you. UT is going to do the EXACT same thing. Stop giving this young man grief for making the best decision for HIM!
This!!!! As if he'd tell a son or daughter, who feels the same way Hurd does, to honor their commitment. FOH!
This is everything that is right with America. An individual excersising their individual rights. If the team no longer serves his purpose the situation is no longer mutually beneficial. He should leave as soon as possible and I would advise every young man who feels the same to do the same. If you can't meet your goals where you are get to where you can as soon as possible. You have a VERY short window to achieve your goals ESPECIALLY when they are sports related.
Comment on Mother of South Carolina freshman quarterback lashes out at writer following article on her son
She has a point in that bentley, if he plays, is getting a layup. Our o-line should be up to the task against UMass and he'all have our top 3 WR's AND the suite of TE's at his disposal. And Dowdle looks like the best back we have... he'll be in the backfield. BMac hasn't had THAT type of set up. Why not play both?
People see Jalen hirst and think, why isn't BMac doing all of that? Let's look at Hurst... he has a solid o-line (3 are pre-season all SEC)... he has a first team SEC WR and TE to throw the ball to... he has one of the best OC's in the history of college football coaching him. If BMac was in Bama's offense he'd likely be having a similar season. But we aren't Bama. No solid o-line, true freshman, RS freshman, and sophomores at all of our skill positions and as much as I believe in Rooer, he's no Kiffen (who I still believe would be a sh*tty HC). Putting Bentley back there would do nothing but kill his confidence.
Comment on 4-star OL backs off South Carolina pledge
I was wondering the same thing. Truth is the o-line hasn't improved and Elliott is likely gone at the end of the year. Can't blame the kid one bit.
This is why no fan should ever flame a kid for decommitting. When kids decommit too many fans tAlk trash and speak about honoring a commitment. Yet when schools think they can get bigger fish it's all good. Love my Gamecocks though. Best of luck to the young man.
We don't have a QB issue. We have an offensive line issue. Orth was able to move the ball because A&M was in a prevent defense, sending 4 or less D-linemen. McIlwain was able to move the ball against Miss St because they were in a prevent defense, sending 4 or less d-linemen. When a d-line sends 5 people after our QB they get to him because our o-line is terrible. If Orth starts against UGA it'"" be the same thing. He'll have no time in the pocket, just like Vandy AND Miss St, because our o-line is atrocious. So stop bashing McIlwain because it's not his fault. Or Muschamps... well, Muschamp DID keep Elliott so it is his fault.
When Orth was in the game A&M was in prevent mode. Not sure he would have had that type of time to throw the ball in the first 3 quarters.
