I still think Jeff was an all round better athlete than Connor. That was
proven on the Baseball field as well as on the gridiron, but you can't argue
with Connor being the better QB on pretty much any level. Stats, wins,
team success etc.... I said in a couple of the practice reports while
watching Shaw run the offense as a freshman, that he was the future of this program,
and a kid I felt would take it to the next level. I also made the comment
that I got this really overwhelming flashback to watching Jeff Grantz
play, when I watched Shaw on the practice field. Jeff is still a personal
favorite Gamecock player of mine, but Connor Shaw is the best QB I've
ever seen under center in a Gamecock Uniform. It makes me even more
proud to say it when you realize you're making that statement about a
young man with his type of Class and Character. I wish him nothing but
the best at whatever he does in life from this point on, and I want to say
again how fortunate I have been for God to allow me to live long enough
to see a player like him run this team. Best Gamecock QB EVER !

While it is bittersweet that we have seen the last of Connor in a Gamecock uniform, it is exciting to think he could be back as a coach one day. He and Marcus are two excellent prospects for future HBC positions and I know they would want to be back at Williams-Brice more than any other place in the country.

Godspeed Connor Shaw!

Thanks for the memories! You've set the bar high, Connor, the best legacy you could have gifted us. As each of our QBs aspire to fill your shoes, it'll be impossible for them to ignore the performance expectations you've established. Well done! Time now to move your game to the next level, at which we have every confidence you'll excel!

In this day of 5-star recruits and prima donnas, the players who have to most heart don't always get the recognition. Connor was considered to be the most underrated QB in the SEC (possibly the country) for the majority of the season. Man, did he show out yesterday! 5 touchdowns: rushing, passing, and receiving...

Gamecock Nation is going to miss you Connor, and I'll be a fan of you no matter where you end up.

Connor Shaw is a great player on and off the field. Gamecock Nation is gonna miss him. I hope everything goes great in whatever he decides to do in life. Hope he gets drafted. Was a great QB for us, the best QB in the nation to me!

Just had SportsCenter on and host brought on Todd McShay & asked him which players so far in this bowl season have helped themselves the most.

McShay answered, "A lot of really good quarterbacks have come out and had really strong performances but I think the player that has impressed me the most is South Carolina's Connor Shaw. This is a guy who has been overlooked his entire career & has had to compete in rotations at quarterback position there and didn't even know if he was going to be the full time starter there this year because of the presence of Dylan Thompson but he is really the unquestioned leader of that football team all year long & has come to be one of the toughest quarterbacks in the country. And he comes out and has what I think was maybe his best passing performance of his career, 22 of 25, and he's a player who's going to be at the all-star challenge/game. I'm excited to see him against All-Star competition. I think he's really going to stand out & I think he's now a draftable quarterback that a lot of NFL teams would love to have on their roster."

Lots of highlights of the Cap1 Bowl during the answer.

Pretty amazing considering me4usc, Swagga, Cocky2001, Cack, and Red Devil all thought he shouldn't even be the starter…

Wait, not that isn't just what they thought..

They also thought Connor

1. Faked his injuries vs UCF and Tennessee (directly accused of this by Cocky 2001, but then backed up by the others)

2. Should be moved to WR before the season.

3. And of course some of my favorites from Red Devil and Swagga - "Connor will be working at an Olive Garden next year" and "SC wins in spite of Connor not because of him."

Which at the end of the day means one thing…

That all of those fans mentioned above are completely idiots that have no clue whatsoever about football.

Sincerely,


The Shaw Family

I am going to miss the heck out of Connor. I rarely see a player give life and limb to get a first down, and ultimately, a W for his school. Shaw did that every game. Shaw is proud and respectful of the Gamecock organization, and it is nice to read this thread and see the pride and respect being showered in his direction. Connor Shaw defines BEAST MODE!

Notice that none one of those idiots mentioned above has congratulated Connor Shaw.

Not once.

Oh but they come out of the woodwork whenever he had a bad game.

Cocky2001 was in complete hiding until after the Tenn game and then he came out with both barrels blazing talking about how Shaw was faking his injuries.

Freaking me4usc spent the better part of two years talking about how Shaw didn't deserve this win or how YPA don't really matter.

But then after the Missouri game, she was remarkably absent. But actually she wasn't absent. Oh no. She was on the board defending Dylan and talking about how being down 17-0 wasn't his fault.

But not once did any of them congratulate Connor.

That was all fine and good until they started accusing him of faking injuries. That is over the line and I am nowhere near done with letting it be known that this group of fans actually accused Connor of faking injuries.
