Good point. It's hard to think about it from anyone's point of view but your own, but a lot of fans wonder what could have been if the result of one game played out differently for them. It seems like every season Oregon is one game away from playing for the MNC. That feeling isn't unique to South Carolina. However it is a shared feeling of good programs. If you've just missed out on playing for a few championships recently then congratulations, you are a good program now.
My thing is you need to consistently be in a position to do big things. It's going to happen for you if you consistently put yourself in that position. Keep the 9, 10, and 11 win seasons coming and it's going to happen eventually.
