Overall record versus top ten teams since 2009 is 5-6 which is actually pretty dang good - basically a coin flip.
In five home games, the Cocks are 4-1...an outstanding percentage..I would wager that record is better than any team in the nation.
Average Score = Gamecocks 22 and Top Ten Opponent 26
Overall, bet on the Gamecocks to beat anyone when playing at home (I know...17 straight so CPT Obvious statement). When the Gamecocks plays a top ten team on the road, we will likely lose. If the line is Gamecocks -9 or less at home, it is a good idea to bet on the Cocks. If the line is Gamecocks +9 or less on the road, betting against the Cocks would make money.
Muschamp said he doesn't have a 3 year or 5 year plan, his plan is to win now and decisions will be based on winning now.
Muschamp believes that recruiting within a five-hour radius of USC, "we can recruit good enough players to win the East every year."
