Default Re: Best / Worst Gamecock team With Steve Spurrier as the Head Coach

Worst season: 2008

Unlike 2007, there was never any real promise of a great season. 2007 had its share of great wins and heartbreaking losses (UT, CU). Our biggest win in 08 was Ole Miss who went 9-4 and there were some UGLY losses.

. Our offense never really got in a rhythm all year. We went from Beecher to Smelley to Garcia who just wasn't ready yet. I'm pretty sure we led the nation in interceptions.
. Offensive line had it's worst year by far. Had NO running game and couldn't protect whoever it was back there playing QB.
. Defense was actually a bright spot for the most part...until Florida.
. The last three games were just embarrassing to watch. Florida beats us 56-6 (I still have nightmares of that trick play we attempted on the kickoff return). Clemson carries Dabo off the field as they beat us 31-14. And then the Outback Bowl. I vividly remember the commentator saying "coach spurrier just needs to find 11 guys who WANT to play".
. Don't forget Spurrier said himself he almost walked away after that season.
