You assume his INT’s would’ve remained unchanged with more attempts, that’s putting too much assumption on an unlikely outcome statistics wise. Plus yards per completion are a telling stat as well, the higher the yards per completion typically means that the completions are higher risk/reward. In other words watch, G’s film again a lot of safety valve completions, low risk/reward, more of a product of the system instead of a true passer. Also you can’t ignore the TD’s. As far as the wr’s, please underestimate them and year two of McClendon’s fast pace offense. Sorry this posted on the wrong place

Yes and we are talking about the guy that UT fans and staff were split on through half of last season and was considered by most to be chryst’s back up, try again.
I respectfully disagree, Jake Bentley 2018 YDS 3,171 27th TD 27 Tied-14th INT 14 Tied-112th, aside from the int’s, 3,171 yards passing with an average of 8.1 yards a completion percentage of 61.9 vs JG 2018 YDS 1,907 84th TD12 Tied-86th INT 3 Tied-1st again great on the Int rating but that’s common if your QB isn’t passing the ball as much. As far as the schedule, it’s brutal but SC returns most of their offense weapons, hopefully healthy in year 2 of that, at times explosive offensive scheme.
SC > TN I guarantee it, since you feel the same way about TN, why don’t we make a deal right now if TN wins I’ll admit I was wrong and leave the comment sections of this site, if SC wins you admit you were wrong (as you were last year) and leave. If not could you at least change your narrative from we will win to I wish we would win because that’s all it is, a wish at this point, you come off as arrogant and ignorant especially since you have nothing to back your statement up with.
And Fuzzybolls you are a moron, lol. My wager still stands since you think this is your year.
There is no reason to believe that TN will beat SC, everything else points the other way. You have yet to explain why you think TN will win, so no one can take you serious. You have no idea how SC is going to fare either but yet here you are attempting to troll.
Spot on. And FL earned that win, they saw the weakness and exposed it, great job on their part.
SC and FL will be the only teams fighting for GA’s spot and I never counts Stoops and KY out. Ga’s spot should be secured again. TN got blown out their last two games of the season to an overrated (and still is, Mizz) and Vandy while fighting for a bowl game. That is very telling of a team. They lose a lot more on defense than people are talking about, Sapp especially, and their oline can go either way. Mizz was terrible with their second round QB Lock at the helm, now they are handing that offense over to Bryant, who struggled to win with the talent he had around him at Clemson.
low cost of living leads to more workers that leads to a higher GDP. You are cherry picking the GDP as having a better economy. Every factor listed above shows that SC is the 22nd best economy in the us and tn is 29. And as far as TN football how long are you going to use that excuse “TN’s historic low,” it’s been almost two decades, it’s become the norm.
Your GDP is tied into having such a low cost of living, SC still has a better economy rating overall. Doesn’t change the fact that TN is one big trailer park. I’d rather be the N. Korea the US than the TN of the US at least N. Korea has the potential to field a decent football team. 22. South Carolina 5 yr. GDP annual growth rate: +2.1% (9th largest increase) 2017 GDP: $189.1 billion (25th smallest) June 2018 Unemployment: 3.8% (tied — 21st lowest) 5 yr. annual employment growth: +1.9% (11th largest increase) 29. Tennessee 5 yr. GDP annual growth rate: +2.0% (11th largest increase) 2017 GDP: $297.8 billion (19th largest) June 2018 Unemployment: 3.5% (tied -- 17th lowest) 5 yr. annual employment growth: +1.7% (13th largest increase) Over the last five years, the Tennessee economy grew at an average rate of 2.0% a year, faster than the 1.7% national growth rate and the 11th fastest of any state. The rapid economic growth has likely helped reduce unemployment in the state.
@cockyfan, congrats on working hard to gain your degree, so you can get a decent profession and make money, while these losers take up the East Wing of their mom’s trailer, sitting around all day jerking it to their autographed Peyton Manning pictures, waiting on the mail man to come so they can drive their fat scooters out to the mail box to take those food stamps to load up on dew and moon pies until ‘Betus finally gets them.
@orangeswarm I agree 100%. What kind of pathetic POS would go to a SC page and attempt to troll about wins and losses when your team is coming off a 5-7 season. Please pass that advice off to Fuzzybolls. Besides if I were you I guess I’d be more worried about finally getting that W against Vandy, then what SC is doing.
SC will beat Mizz, no doubt. Btw you said the same thing last year with Lock.
Not trolling just hitting diph*ts with facts, lol
Lol you are the one who has never once gave a reason why you think SC is worse and TN is better this year, that’s all I asked. You constantly come on here and make a statement, then when you are confronted with facts, you take off and wait for the next SC article to comment on. We get it you think TN will win against SC, just as you did last year in fact my wager from last year still stands if you think TN will win, stand by it.
Oh I get it, it’s just he’s not doing so hot with, how did you put it, competing and winning.
Lol I lost track who you guys are blaming these days, Fulmer, Kiffin, Dooley, Jones, or is it one of the AD’s fault? Getting in licks, no just speaking truths.
Assuming that everybody has the same work day schedule is pretty low IQ and sounds like someone who hasn’t worked a job in sometime.
@foam if anyone will have y’all ready it’s Stoops he is one of the most underrated coaches in football. He has built a football program in KY, a traditional basketball school. I’m mean the Kroger field sponsorship move was brilliant. Here’s to a good game this year and no injuries.
5-7, perhaps Pruitt should stick to ice cream and beaches
Well Fuzz it’s its this easy, I never guaranteed a win against KY, I had it as a toss up. Mizz May have destroyed TN recently, but go back and look at the rosters of SC and Mizz and stats from the last three years and then come back back your argument up. Also how is TN better? What makes you think SC is worse? Because I’ll be happy to explain how you will be wrong again this year.
Been paying attention all along and welcome to SDS. Now explain why I am wrong to think that SC should beat Mizz.
I would agree but honestly KY just has found a way to beat us for 5 straight. I do agree this year should be different and is the best case for that 7th win, but it will be a toss up in my mind until break that streak, lol I’ve been burned before.
Toss up at best, lol. What makes this Mizz team better than the past three seasons under Lock? SC is returning most of the same players from last year most of which spent the season in street clothes. Mizz will be starting a QB not named Lock for the first time in 3 years. It’s safe to say that Mizz keeping it close is a toss up at best.
Lol the fact that you are crying about rain, you forget SC played in the same conditions, with a less balanced run game and beat you with Scarnecchia at QB. You are delusional if you think Mizz beats SC.
7 wins is highly attainable barring mass injuries, TN, Vandy, Mizz, NC, Charleston Southern, and App St should be all wins, KY and FL are toss ups, and there is no reason to believe that SC couldn’t upset an AM or even Clemson. With that said, this habit of firing coaches after 4-5 years is absurd. It doesn’t work and sets your team back, TN is a prime example of this.
Put down the pipe, lol, but thanks for the laugh.
Yes, yes they will, SC will win rain or shine.
@ben we will just have to agree to disagree, I’m withholding any judgement on Muschamp based on the FL years. He had a lot to clean up after Hurricane Meyer left town. As far as his time at SC he has done remarkable considering the shape the program was in when Spurrier left. As far as letting the foot off the gas, that simply wasn’t the case in the FL game, go back and watch, look at the stats, SC’s depth was gone we literally had our RB at Corner. Mullen simply saw the weakness in the defense due to injuries and exposed it, hopefully we aren’t as banged up this year and we will see.
