I didn't realize that we as a team were undefeated on the road against top 10 teams when Connor Shaw (or any QB for that matter) is our starting QB. Oh, that's right - we're not

Connor Shaw is one of the most underrated players in college football outside of South Carolina. In South Carolina, he might be the most overrated player in college football. Some of you treat him like he's never lost a game, thrown an interception, fumbled the ball, or been sacked in his life.
Connor Shaw is a leader on this team, and the W or L that's going up on that schedule week in and week out is going to have his stamp all over it. While me may not be the main reason we win or lose, he's going to be a crucial factor in it regardless. I hope he comes to play against Georgia - because he's going to need to play well to escape there with a victory.
