We do have a manageable schedule, but the East looks very competitive this year. Just a few close losses and the title game is toast. The best real chance we had for a title was last season. Don't get all madbro, just educate me on what you super fans are giddy about, cuz I'm not sure I see a juggernaut here.
And ALL the teams we are playing have also had losses.
We aren't the only team to lose key players, however the difference of late is that the Gamecocks now reload instead of rebuild.
We lost Stephon Gilmore and Melvin Ingram stepped up.
We lost Melvin Ingram and Devon Taylor stepped up.
We lost Devon Taylor and JD Clowney stepped up.
See the pattern here?
