Re: Connor Shaw, and my thoughts on what he deserves.
First Connor became a gamecock legend last night and potentially that should do him well for a lifetime around here. Second I am a huge shaw fan so I mean this with utmost respect for all he is and for what he's done. However a heisman candidate would not have been overwhelmed as he was in the first half against Tennessee last week. That award is about stats and winning most of the big games. He didn't win the big game this season against Georgia and he was part of the reason we didn't win last week when we should have.
That said, I would not trade shaw for Peyton manning right now.
He will have a lifetime of adoration from gamecock nation...me included.
