A lot of times it's grades. The semester ends between the end of the season and the beginning of bowls. Their grades come in and if they failed some classes or their GPA isn't high enough they can't play. Or if they missed too many classes.

I went to school with him, probably didn't go to class, he would hardly ever come to class and when he did it was like 10 minutes before it was over.

I think we will be focused for this game.

1) Michigan is the all-time winningest program in college football;
2) Spurrier has never played Michigan;
3) This is the rubber game as we are 1-1 versus Michigan in our history.

When we have something to play for, however, he's been masterful at preparing a good gameplan and getting the team ready. Hopefully the achievement of back to back 11 win seasons will be enough motivation for him.


Funny you say that because I noticed that as well. SOS is a great coach which baffled me because of his seemingly lax attitude doesn't translate to a great coach. Whether a coach thinks their team has something to play for or not, he/she should get their team ready & focused and the coach should be that way as well.

Whatever make the job easier.

This only adds to what I see as our biggest problem, lack of depth. Hagerup will hurt the most, but losing Floyd is significant. He's by no means a shut down corner, but he's way better than anyone who will replace him.

To reply to a couple comments in this thread-I don't think we'll win, but obviously am hopeful we will. I can see a scenario where it happens (SC disinterested, several turnovers, etc.) but don't think it's likely. Either way, it's the last game for both our teams for 8 months-so I'll watch every minute no matter what.

I wonder if there is any film on the backup punter. I know the ST coach likes to look at that and measure how quickly he gets the ball out. If it is z slow process, maybe we will get a chance to block one! Either way, the Gamecocks are going to bring pressure on a punt or two to see if the new MI punter panics.

Team leadership is much stronger than in the past, I really think the guys want to win this game.... I do not expect a half-assed effort from these guys(Like Iowa or U-Conn)

MEL noted earlier about how the team responds to the attitude of the HBC in our bowl games. This is true, but I believe that the team plays more so to its QB's attitude. Both of the bowl disasters were of a certain QB and how they ended were a reflection of his lax preparedness. Our current #1 & 2 are the opposite so I feel we will see the proper attitude reflected team wide. Go Cocks!!

Means our guys should def. perform, not take this game lightly, and dominate.
No excuse if they come out and lay an egg in this game.

Disagree on the level of importance of missing players. Floyd is the bigger loss. We're ultra thin at CB. Agree Floyd was our best DB & his replacement has limited experience plus this kills nickel package depth.
Hagerup, while great numbers CAN BE replaced by Sophmore Matt Wile who's punted previously with solid results (41 yds per punt) & already does the pooch punting. The other guy lost is a special teams standout which could cause us problems with Sanders out there looking to bust one. What sucks is 2 of them are Seniors. So much for Senior leadership.
