Unfortunately, Missouri (Like South Carolina) got shafted due to "Fairness"
rules that make up the BCS. Missour was in the Cotton Bowl which isn't a BCS
bowl game. I understand you have to have limits placed on entries when
you have a limited number of slots aside, but to say those are for the
"Elite" teams in College football, and then have rules to omit BETTER
teams than those designated as ELITE due to being fair vs the ACTUAL
best of the best is ridiculous ..... Glad to see this joke of a post season
system now DEAD.

True. At least the announcers for our Cap1Bowl game said immediately on the air that we were essentially a BCS team.

We are now at the point to take the next step. Whatever it takes, win the SEC and get in the Play-offs.

I will take 11 wins and a #4 final ranking over a glorified bowl to hold a 1/2 bushel of oranges. EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR. One of the few times that 4>8...GO COCKS!

Hope it's not an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth & joke for a joke, but I'm not holding my breath since the color blue doesn't become me.

Hope I'm wrong, but I fear it's gonna be welcome to the brave new(same old) world of political correctness. Bring it on!

Ahh, progress, what could we do w/o you? Sanity?? Don't be silly! It's overrated.

Amazing, and yet we ended up the fourth best team in the nation when

What a great job by Coach Adams, Coach Botkin, and coach Brown to
bring that group together, and hats off to Coach Spurrier for holding the
season together when a lot of fans were jumping ship after the UT loss.

BEST SINGLE SEASON COACHING JOB OF HIS CAREER, Best single season
for the Gamecocks to date, with even better yet to come.


Maybe the loss to tenn was the kick in the pants our young team needed. Tough lesson to learn, but it just might propel our team to more unprecedented heights over the next few years.

Ditto. The way so many other teams were exposed or crapped the bed in their bowl games made me feel like we should be 4, but I was worried the pollsters would screw us over. I would love to see how some of the writers and coaches voted.

Default Re: Final AP poll puts us at No. 4...wow.

this from SI.com...lol

Clemson (11-2) may have knocked off Ohio State in the Orange Bowl, but it still couldnít finish as the top-ranked program in its own state. South Carolina (11-2), which dispatched Wisconsin 34-24 in the Capital One Bowl on New Yearís Day, came in at No. 4. The Tigers finished at No. 8. The final rankings will likely come as welcome news to Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier, who hasnít been afraid to take a few jabs at Clemson coach Dabo Swinney.

Very good observation - granted they've proven to be the best FCS program by far, but Top 25 overall o_O ?

EDIT: Just checked - no votes in the USA Today poll

My Bad !! .... Maybe too early in the Morning and the Folgers hadn't kicked
in yet, or maybe just an excitement overload seeing the rankings, but I
totally missed Counting Wisconsin.

I corrected the error in my first post !

Thanx

Oh don't worry. We'll be good and screwed over in the first polls of the 2014 season. We'll get dropped to like 15 while UGA and the Taters will start in the top ten.
