No, until we have a playoff with more than four teams there will always be someone left out that should have went. Even when we go to eight this is gonna happen, somebody is always gonna bitch.

I think there's a difference between thinking the team deserves to be in a more prestigious game and being disappointed we're in the game we are.

And next year's set up will still be a joke, Woody, but I do think it's a step in the right direction.

It is the highest paying non BCS bowl. Orlando has plenty of places to eat and drink adult beveages on or near airport blvd. Last time we ran into many Gamecock and Cornhuskers at a huge sports bar sundat to watch NFL. it became a BIG cheer off it was fun. We crapped the bed on 4th and 2 foot at Tennessee can't go back so move forward. I'm going .

Some folks are trying to have it both ways. They want to tell others not to look at the previous state of the program in order to justify where it is now as being successful, but most of those people then want to say, "but look what we did in the past," to justify this bowl game/scenario as being a disappointment.
Touche. We're all pulling for the same team here, I just think some have higher expectations. It's SEC or bust for me every season. If it were "get to a bowl game or bust" every year then we might as well be vanderbilt. High expectations have their pros and cons, but there's a reason the alabamas, auburns, etc. are winning big and it's because they expect to win it all every single year and are disappointed when they don't. They won't settle for anything less & I think that's the best approach you can have.

I am going forward too. I am going forward on to, recruiting season, women's basketball season, baseball season, next football season. To be blunt, the football season stopped being meaningful for us when Missouri beat Texas A&M. I want to beat Wisconsin, and I watch it, but I don't think it matters much in the long run who wins.

I wonder why they don't give more money to the winners of these bowls games. Give the team some incentive win and make it matter more. Instead of paying each team 4.5 mil. The should pay 8 mil. to the winner and 1 mil to the loser.

Would have liked to have been matched up against a pass happy team so our Dline can go crazy. Instead we get to see the B Gap Run Away From Clowney Offense one last time before he goes.

Losers settle.

Winners push.

Simple as that.

3-5 years ago, the Capital One bowl was an accomplishment. Not so this year.

If you want to say you support the team no matter what, and that we should make the best of this situation, I have no issue with that, and in fact, I agree. But don't try to make it out as if this was a great season. We could have, and should have done better.

I understand the disappointment of not making the SEC championship or a BCS game but it is highest non BCS bowl. Not sure I am disappointed in the bowl just not making the SEC championship.

I am no physician, nor an expert in any fashion about the testicles, but I think in and of it's self, having more than one left nut would warrant a trip to your local physician.

If I had the time and money and lived in SC I'd have season tickets.

If I had the time and money I absolutely would go to the Outback Bowl. Hell, yeah I would.

That being said ... we shoulda woulda coulda oughta be in a BCS bowl and I'm disappointed we're not. Hopefully, we can make one next year so that I can't afford it or be able to get the time off from work for it.

How many draft eligible juniors and seniors do we have that are projected 1st rounders?

How many players total on our team right now would you say play at a level that would get them drafted in the first two rounds of the NFL draft?

How many would you say Alabama, FSU, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Stanford, Oregon, Southern California, Clemson, Missouri, Texas A&M, Florida, or Ohio State have? I wonder if anyone knows the number of players each of those teams get drafted in the top two rounds every year and how many of our players get drafted in the top two rounds during the same time period.

How many of those teams finish ahead of South Carolina in final recruiting rankings over the last four or five years.

How many of those teams have the same or better record than South Carolina does over the last four years?


Take a look at those things and it may become easier to see why (yes, it is certainly disappointing to lose to Tenn and miss out on trips to the SECCG) another chance at an 11 win season and a trip to the Capital One Bowl is nothing to be pissed about.

OK, so for my input into this thread I want to quote one of the most iconic bands in the world. If everybody would just heed these words of wisdom they would understand and appreciate the Capital One Bowl berth.

With all of our NFL departures over the past 2 seasons, I felt like it was totally possible to end up 7-5/8-4 this season, but hell, we went 10-2. One could say that we underachieved in a couple of games, sure, but really, with all the new faces in starting roles this year, I'd have to say that just maybe, we may have overachieved in a few games as well.

A New Year's day bowl, desirable location, along with a very good and physical opponent with strong football tradition? No bitchin' here.

You disappointed, 'woulda, shoulda, coulda' guys can simply join all the rest of the fans at all the other programs that are whining about not winning their conference/achieving a BCS bowl game. It's kind of hard to do, ya know?

Not me. It's a good bowl.

Great weather. Good crowd. Nice facility. Great time to broadcast.

Playing in the SEC severely limits our options, so you won't find me bitching about this one.
