This topic has been discussed. Good season, not GREAT. Why would I want to remember 0-21 and compare it to now? It's not justifiable. Look where we came from! WHO CARES. It's about now.

20 years from now i'll remember 3 straight 10-11 win seasons and be happy, but I refuse to keep remembering 0-21 and somehow justify every season we have that's ok and revert back/ compare to the days when we sucked. The mindset of fans, coaches and players should be WIN IT ALL OR BUST. That's why you play the game. To win championships. Period. End of Story.

I think HBC and Whammy did a great job with this team! This was a great year for us. An SEC Championship would have been nice, but can't complain about 11 wins and a top 8 ranking! I'll be in Orlando on the 40yrd line lower level cheering on my team no matter what.

AMEN. This is a great bowl. If you had to pick a big time nonBCS bowl, this would be it. It has the highest selection preference/criteria, pays the most, and the location is great. Tampa sucks, playing against Duke in ATL would've been a joke. This is so much better than what could've been.

That was a long a time ago when we sucked. No one is saying WE suck now, but the end result of the season does for a team doesn't doesn't suck. It was really good season, we broke some records beat up on the Clemson, but at the end of the day we didn't go to Atlanta and we got stuck in a so-so bowl game we were just in couple of years ago, against another Big Ten team that our fans just aren't going to get really excited for. That is all anyone is complaining about.

"Could've been worse," isn't an agrument that is going to get the fan base excited about this game. It's just going to be a normal USC game. "Could've been a lot better if just a got one more stinking first down against Tennessee." That is what is resonating right now.

IM MAD!!! Why cant we be like Clemson and get a BCS game? Because Cleampson fans have told me that even though we beat them, we aren't a real team unless we make a BCS game like they did.

Just kidding.

Beating Wisconsin would be a huge win. Go Gamecocks! 3 11-win seasons in a row is big time.

And it should be. That game was extremely frustrating and it cost us a lot. But it doesn't mean that the rest of our season is garbage. We aren't an elite team yet...but we're getting closer with every 10+ win season.

So here is my feeling, each offseason fans post expectations, many often say if we don't make the SEC title for this reason or that, then I'll be disappointed, or they say if we don't make the BCS etc. we didn't make the sec title game, nor the BCS, these guys have a legit claim. Anyone who thinks we did what this team was capable of is well not smart. This team was 10-2 with a loss to UT. People have a right to be disappointed a bit at the end of the year when we go to a bowl we have been to a lot in the past, especially when a poor performance in Knoxville and Athens is the reason why. Now for background on my age/fan hood so nobody speculates, I am 21 and have lived in cola my wholeife, applied to only one school, USC of course and have gone to games for years. I will watch the game, probably go, be mad as hell if we lose, happy as can be if we win, but winning is expected and this team is a BCS team playing in a non BCS bowl.

It is ok to be bummed out about this bowl. I can understand the frustration some fans feel.

Some of you posters are just so....well, I'll just keep my mouth shut.

Yes, going to a bowl sucks, the fact that it is a New Years Day bowl just makes it worse. I would rather sit home and watch other teams play in bowls.

I don't have a problem with us not getting a BCS bowl. I'm just saying the Cotton Bowl against OK State would have been A LOT more appealing and fun.

This boring opponent we are facing is the early 3 point favorite over us. Also, I have seen 3 predictions this morning. 2 of them are predicting us to lose. Our fan base needs to realize that this isn't a boring opponent. This is an opponent that can beat our tails.

Predictions of this game and the early line does not change my opinion of the game. I still find it boring.

What makes you think you have to be in the top 4 to make the playoff? You do realize there is a selection committee, right?

If it were just top 4, there wouldn't be a need for a selection committee.
