2010 Auburn/FSU beatdowns were the eve of 33-6 run; Did USC...NEED this loss?
Just for anyone who thinks the sky is truly falling, remember two past beatdowns, in 2010, when Auburn beat USC senseless in Atlanta, and FSU busted 'em in the mouth. 0-2, back to back big time losses.
What followed was the 33-6 epic run we went on.
Who knows. Maybe we NEEDED this humbling to reignite the desperate sense of urgency day to day. It was almost starting to feel like USC players and fans felt like we "deserved" some of these wins over teams not named Georgia/Florida, and almost like the end was already sealed before kickoff.
Cant change last night. And it sure isn't the first beatdown the Gamecocks have taken.
Maybe this is a blessing in disguise. To humble some guys. To make some refocus. Sharpen the drive a bit.
Heck, I'm kinda excited to see how we react. We'll play ECU with a DESPERATE attitude for a change!!!! Truly desperate, as ECU is now a MUST WIN AT ALL COSTS game.
Same for Georgia. This USC team is fighting for it's season and life now.
Is it just me...or is anyone else kinda happy to see if the players can get that nasty, desperate, angry streak back that guys like Eric Norwood, Melvin Ingram and DJ Swearinger had???
I don't know. Maybe the team and all of us needed this. Heck, look at Clemson. They got embarrassed by West Virginia. Since then, they've only lost to 2 teams: USC and FSU, both great teams, and they've won the Orange Bowl and beat LSU, UGA. They NEEDED that beat down to refocus them too.
Just keep fighting.
