You should hop on the Alabama (or now Auburn) bandwagon if you want a championship every year. You should apply for Spurrier's job if you think you can do better.

If we were winning every game by a big margin then I could understand the "bring the fans down to earth" comment.

This program needs to take the next step while the opportunity presents itself. This year was set up for USC to do big things. Yet we blew it. The window is closing. The majority of the conference is outrecruiting us. We have plenty of fans who are content with mediocre recruiting, because they are convinced that we'll just "coach up" what we've got. That doesn't cut it in the SEC. In the SEC you've got to have top-notch talent AND coach them up. You can't do just one or the other and expect sustained success.

I see our window closing, as early as next year given the significantly tougher schedule we'll face in 2014. USC has got to get a trophy or two in the trophy case from this era or it will be viewed as nothing more than a brief uptick in the centuries-long mediocrity of Carolina football.
You talk about mediocre recruiting but you have to understand you can't make kids come to your school. They are trying to do it the clean way. You talk about the window closing, but the 2015 class is shaping up to be one of our best ever.

Default Re: Happy? Maybe. Satisfied? Hell no.

Before the season started we had a thread stating what we would be satisfied with. I believe that I said that with our young team an 8 win season would be my minimum. We have easily exceeded that so I am Ok with the season, am looking forward to the bowl, and hope to do better next year.

They struggled against Washington St, Miss State, and Ole Miss also. That Georgia team they beat were not the same Georgia team we faced that was at home, hungry for revenge, and HEALTHY!

I sure hope our players aren't as uninterested in this upcoming game as many of our fans seem to be. Although I think the quiet majority is probably a little more reasonable.

I'm just saying i've seen Auburn play twice in person this season cause my cousin is a CB commit. They'll get thrashed in the Nat'l Championship.

You have to remember that this was a new offensive scheme for some of the Auburn players. Nick Marshall didn't start learning it until fall practice. He's told the media he only knew 25% of the playbook at the start of the season. Auburn didn't struggle with Ole Miss, they got the score up then Ole Miss staged a late surge that fell short.

I understand your point. That's similar to what i'm saying. We put up big points and let a lot of teams get back into the game. Auburn did the same in games.
