2010, 2011, 2012, 2013...Which Season is the best and most memorable?
 
As we are all well aware of, until recently we didn't have too many football seasons to really look back on and say "Man what a heck of a year!" Of course 1969 gave us our ACC Championship. 1980 gave us a Heisman winner, 1984 Black Magic, 1995 our first bowl win. 2000 and 2001 were the best years under Coach Holtz. But The last four are clearly the best in our history. Which season is your favorite? In 2010, we beat a #1 for the first time. We won the Swamp the first time, and we played in Atlanta. However in 2011 we beat Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, & Clemson. The first sweep of ALL FOUR in school history. And of course we had our first 11 win season. However, 2012 gave us an amazing win over than #5 Georgia, And Coach Spurrier became the winngest coach in South Carolina history ON CLEMSON's FIELD! And we had probably the best and most exciting bowl victory in our history over Michigan. Yet in 2013, we knock off a top 5 team on the road for the first time since 1981, and beat #5 Mizzou in double overtime for our first overtime win in school history. Top that off by beating 2 teams that WON BCS BOWLS, Our FIRST Five peat over Clemson, and Our 3rd straight 11 win season. So which season is your favorite? 2010, 2011, 2012, or 2013???

Tough call. My favorite win over Clemson was 2012, but for this program to finish in the top five is pretty special.

This year. The way Connor Shaw ended his career was something special.

I feel like we turned a sharp corner in 2010 and haven't looked back. Each season is memorable, but 2010 will always stand out to me.

2013 was awesome, even with the loss to Tennesse. we had some great leadership, and hopefully this will carry over to next year. Go Cocks!

Tough call, and I feel like it's easy to go with recency in any situation like this, but I gotta go with this season.

It's great to be a Gamecock and every years just gets a little sweeter. Watch out 2014, The Gamecocks are coming.:woo:

2013 is by far the best season, but ever since that season was over, I've had
a lot of good "vibes" for what we did during the 2011 season. The team
went through a lot that season, with the rocky start, the changing of
QBs half way through the season, and the way it all came together at the
end of the year with the Clemson win, and the big win over Nebraska in
the Cap 1 bowl. .... First 11 win season that broke the record for most
wins in a season. It was the year that ushered in Connor Shaw as the
leader of the offense, and was Jadeveon's first season and he was a big part
of the awesome defense we played that year too.

That was a special team because they were a working class bunch and was the best defense we've had ever.
They were also the first bunch to show up to a bowl game determined to kick butt and that they did after a slow start.
Give me this year's OL and the 2013 Connor Shaw with that team and things would have been even more interesting. They may have went all the way.

2010. The introduction of Marcus Lattimore. SEC title game. Beat Clemson at Clemson.

2010 we swept UF, UGA, UT and Clemson for the first time, 2011 was first season undefeated in the division.

To me, 2010 was disappointing. We had so much talent and had no business losing 5 games.

2012 was my favorite year. To me our team played its best that year, other than the Florida game of course. LSU was disappointing but nobody beats LSU in Baton Rouge at night.

This year was awesome but I loved the Georgia beat down in 2012.

The 2011 team overachieved, which is what makes that year special. As much as that team went through, that was probably Spurrier's best coaching job since he's been here. The Lattimore injury combined with Shaw having very little experience, I think most of us thought 8 wins would be a good season.

2012 was my favorite. My freshman year at Carolina! Even my first ever game against ECU was magical. I also was able to attend Vandy, UF, Clemson, and Tampa
