Default Walt Deptula

Just said that he considered us a darkhorse national title contender. Compared us to Alabama. He has been gushing about us the whole show, also been giving UGA and UT hell.

Let's just go beat Furman and not get all into what Walt Deptula Thinks
about us. . . . Three years ago, he was saying Spurrier was washed up
and wasn't our best choice as a coach here to begin with. We're not even
close to being contenders for the NC right now. . . . . .

If we're 6-0 after we play Kentucky, then we should start getting
twinkles in the eyes, but I'd be real careful even then. . . . . .If we
knock off Alabama and are 6-0 after the UK game, then we MIGHT
have a legitimate shot at the SEC East, and we can go from there.
As our coach once said, without a playoff, all the right things have to
come together for us to be playing for the NC, and it's not even a
given if you're undefeated after the season is over.

Please guys, don't start buying into the accolades ESPN, or others are
heaping on us right now. .They have their Cinderellas every year, and
we might be one of them. After knocking off UGA and with Lattimore's
efforts, they see a nice story building that they might be able to ride for
a while. To them, we're a headline if we continue to win. . .I don't want
to be a Headline, I want this to be the start of a PROGRAM if it's for real.

If we lose a big game, they'll move on to the next big story, but let's just
take care of Furman, and hope we can continue to give them headlines.
Don't start counting on us being in the NC game right now. We've got a
lot of holes to plug between now and the time they play the NC game.

Appreciate the OP letting us know about Deptula, but I agree with Spurt. Let's lay off the Kool-aide for a while. Couple years back we were #6, and finished the season unranked.

I agree.

At the same time I have erased that tailspin of a season from my memory and would greatly appreciate you never bringing it up again. . . .Thanks

He is just saying that to rile up his primary audience, i.e., taters. Like all shock jocks, he is trying to stir up controversy. It's good for his ratings. Better just to tune him out and listen to WNCW. Their tunes are great.

I'm not sure we are a darkhorse NC contender but we should be able to make a bcs game this year. There is no reason for us not to IMO but it is a week to week sport and as long as we focus on the coming week and not worry about the future until it upon us we should be fine.... As I type this I realize I say we, but I really mean the team and since I'm using my phone to post, I really don't want to delete it and start over....

GO COCKS!!!

Default Re: Walt Deptula

I am as excited as anyone about the progress the team has made thus far, but every time I feel like I might get ahead of myself, I think of the following:

1) The last time we played Furman, they beat us. Their RPI is currently higher than Vandy's.

2) We haven't beaten Auburn since we've been in the SEC, and the last time we played them on the plains, they beat us 48-7 if I recall correctly. They're good this year, and the home-field advantage will be significant.

3) We've beaten UK 10 straight times. They have a good team this year (third in RPI behind UF and Bama left on our schedule and incidentally ahead of Arkansas). They're due and we have to travel to Lexington for this year's game.

4) Vandy beat us two straight years in 2007 and 2008, and they easily could've beaten us last year to make it three straight.

5) The last time we beat UGA, we finished 6-6 after everyone got jacked up about the possibility of contending to win the SEC East.

6) We've beaten Florida once since we've been in the conference, and the losses (especially in the Swamp) are usually lopsided. They have roughly 9 weeks to figure out their offensive problems before we face them.

7) Arkansas beat us soundly last year, and they're supposedly improved on both sides of the ball.

8) We haven't beaten Clemson twice in a row since 1969-70.

I could cite more, but there's no need. It's true that there are a boatload of demons we can exorcise as a football program, and the exorcism could very well begin this year. If we beat Furman, then I will think about Auburn, and so on each week. It's fun to speculate, but Spurt's right... there are a lot of holes to plug, and a lot that could go wrong if our team doesn't keep its head on straight.

This shouldn't be in any way construed as a "how dare you be excited" thread... it's just my own personal statement that each week, my Gamecocks are going to have to prove to me that they're worthy of the attention. There's a chance that they might be worthy, but we'll see after we play Furman.

If you listened to the player interviews after the UGA game, they all said that it's ONE game at a time. They are not looking ahead any more than that. We should do the same.

Furman is next.

I listen to Walt everyday, I dont think it is a ratings booster at all. He calls it like he sees it. Most people have wondered if Spurrier was in his right mind with the way Carolina has been playing in the past.

I agree not to get ate up we've started out like gang busters before and ended up with a bunch of L's at the end of the season.

The coaches will make sure the players take one game at a time. As fans, we need to EXPECT to win every game. No more "what if we tank the second half" blah blah blah. This is a totally DIFFERENT team and they believe so I do too. I think it's fine to talk things up on our boards, but I wouldn't advise it on the rival boards yet. ;) Enjoy the ride everyone and quit stressing. This is going to be a special year! Dream big and have fun with it!

He said we are a dark horse. Which isnt much of a stretch, considering we think we can win the SEC East. The winner of the SEC EAST, i would consider a DARK horse for a NC. I did laugh when i heard him say that. He usually isnt high on USC, but picked Carolina to beat UGA. He is usually pretty spot on but i think he was trying to rile up the taters.
