Rapid Reaction: Kyle Trask, late defensive turnover help Florida rally for victory at South Carolina
I don't blame you for defending your team. Somebody needs to. The rest of the nation and it's media knows you needed the refs on your side to win.
Bigger than his $18 million buyout after this season?
Bare minimum, we had better come closer than Tennessee.
It's rare to see such delusion, and on such a grand scale as this. It's crazy what some people have to convince themselves of in order to maintain some sense of sanity in a world in which they can not bear the true reality without fear of a psychotic break. None of these scenario's will ever exist outside the mind of the man who imagined, and subsequently wrote them.
Florida fans can tell themselves whatever fairy tale they need to sleep at night, the reality is that this is going to be a beatdown.
Honestly, they probably wont be, at least not on both sides of the ball.
Florida gets absolutely waxed in this game. It won't be close. They are not a top ten team, and they get completely exposed. They lose by at least 2 touchdowns. Not gonna argue about it. Just gonna watch it happen.
Pretty easy assumption when up is the only direction there is.
South Carolina 27 to 6. That's not the score, it's why South Carolina always wins. It's the number of 4 stars and above each school has brought in in the last 4 cycles combined. According to the composite. Mizzou is one transfer QB away from being Vandy. West Virginia better than Mizzou made them look? They beat James Madison by 7, and Madison held them to 20...yup, 20...against James Madison. The loss to Wyoming was just the icing on the cake. Can you say paper defense?
How good would SDS be right now if they hired actual journalists? Nothing good to say about your team? This just in from the alternate universe...that Tennessee is still good!
Whatever helps you sleep at night, dude.
Florida is way overrated and that still ain't happening.
Who cares what some guy that cuts hair in Texas thinks?
This. We were getting to him all day...just not in time. He was getting rid of the ball in a hurry, and outside of a few times early, we were not gonna stop it. When he can consistently hit that slant to the WR/RB in full stride with that talent, it's going to be a long day for your defense...and it was.
As if those WRs were not enough, he was also throwing to a 5* RB.
This is like the movie version of events. It should have started like "based on a true story."
I'm not debating anything in the article, or what Mizzou is capable of. Just that I would believe it from somebody that wasn't a homer more. It would be nice if the writers on this site pretended they were on the playoff committee, and recused themselves from discussion about their own team.
Tennessee is in a tough spot. Disastrous coaching choices and short leashes have made it a very unattractive job at this point. You have a hands on AD, and boosters that run the show from behind the scenes. That eliminates almost any established coach who wants to run his own program. So you really have to hire a newcomer and hope he can navigate all the hurdles to success Tennessee has in place in the form of people behind the scenes who don't seem to agree on much including who to hire, or how long they should get. Now you are in a position where if you fire the coach this soon, it sends a message to every potential coach out there that their stay could be short...very short. The last search was a total crapshow. On the other hand, lose a couple more games like these, and you won't even be able to recruit guys out of your own state, much less anyone else's. Tennessee needs to bite the bullet and hold on to Pruitt for a couple more years and put a stop to the inmates running the asylum at the top and behind the curtain to be able to move forward. They aren't the first huge program to fall victim to the money behind the scenes mucking things up figuring out what to do in the aftermath of a coaching change following a long successful run. Take back control of your University. You have plenty of money. Tell the guys who think they are in charge to take a hike.
Bama is a tall order, but I feel better about showing up for that game than I did last week. I particularly liked the way Hilinski and the home crowd fed off of each other. Playing at home in Williams Brice always seemed to intimidate Bentley.
After 3 and a half years, hearing that same line makes me want to punch him in the face. I want Hilinski to start STAT. Joyner can keep his package, or WR reps...whatever, but I'm not trying to hear about him starting when he couldn't even beat a true freshman for 2nd string. The Hilinski era at South Carolina needs to start now.
This is the week to play Hilinski. If not from the start, certainly in heavy doses. I would normally say once we have a nice lead, but that may not be an option. Considering his buyout, Muschamp clearly believes he is playing with house money. That won't save Tanner.
If this season goes the way Saturday went, one of two people are going to be gone. If it ain't Muschamp, it will be the guy who signed that contract. Tanner is growing less popular by the day at this point as it is. Somebody's ass will get fired.
Actually having the slightest clue what you are talking about, clearly is not a prerequisite to work for SDS.
They are continuously looking for new ways to insult South Carolina here.
Holy Cow!! That is some next level rationalization right there. With some hard-core denial thrown in for good measure. That Florida team is going to get their rears handed to them several times this season.
Doesn't get any more Homer than this.
Did you just explain trash talk to a UGA fan? You immediately lose at the internet.
And it's not over. I generally pull for SEC teams out of conference, but screw that, I'm all Miami in this one!!
Why now is the time for guys like Dakereon Joyner and Tate Martell to seriously consider a move to WR
South Carolina fans have been arguing amongst themselves for quite a while about this very thing. Joyner is WAY to talented and athletic not to be on the field somewhere. He is a good quarterback, we just have better. It would be tough for him to break the depth chart at WR though, because it's a pretty stacked room, and we already have one QB trying to push his way into the rotation in Jay Urich. Many want a special "package" for Joyner, while others want him to make the switch to RB, where we have more of a need, and he has the ability. The one thing we all agree on is that none of us want to see him in the Portal. We all love the Dakereon and want him to help the team. We just can't agree on how.
Mizzou isn't moving past anybody in the SEC recruiting in the mid 40's every year. You even lost to our back-up in the only start of his entire career. It's not personal, I have absolutely nothing against Mizzou, it's just the truth. The 'diamonds in the rough' Pinckel was a genius at finding and developing are becoming fewer and farther between under Odom. I think he's a really good coach, but without better recruiting there is only so much he can do.
