We lost some important people. It's gonna hurt us badly. We probably won't get that production this year from anyone to match.

New Carolina:
I like the guys we have returning and coming in. I think they're up to the task. Win anyway.

I predict that the 2014 version of Gamecock football will emerge from Atlanta in early December at 12-1! Only question I have: will that loss to Auburn be on "the Plains" or in the SECCG?!?!

We'll have a talented team that should win a minimum of 8-9 games. I don't think we have a super dominant team that we should expect wins 11 games just because we think so. The games that'll determine a good to great season will be UGA, Missouri, Auburn, Florida, and Clemson. An SECCG appearance is completely DOABLE, but we don't have some super easy schedule either.

Hardest games from those 5 will be Auburn and Florida. I can see us beating florida (even if it's in Gainesville) but Auburn worries me. UGA and Mizz will be tough but being at home will give us an edge.

It's a good problem to have but I feel like now that we've been 10-2 3 years in a row, a nother 10 win regular season would be kinda disappointing. It's time to break the barrier and get 11 in the reg season. We've broken the 11 wins three times- it's now time to get to twelve.

I honestly think we are the best equipped team to win the east. Of course, anything can happen (ie Missouri 2013) but right now we have the best shot. The west is so wide open. I can easily see LSU, Auburn, or Alabama winning the West. It will be interesting to see it all play out.

Default Re: South Carolina Is Really, Really Good

I think this year's team could be so versatile on offense that we will be able to put up 24 or more points every game. We may prefer to pound, pound with running backs and tight ends and then burn 'em with Byrd and Shaq. We should also be able to run some open stuff with WR's all over the place, using quick screens and draws and outlet passes to the backs when they use a lot of pressure.

On defense, I believe if (big if) the linebackers can shut down the second level and make hard stops at the line, we will be tough to move the ball on. Losing Clowney, Quarles, and Sutton up front is a big blow, but I think we will have a level enough rotation at DT and DE that we can stay fresher than anyone we face. Line play isn't just a matter of conditioning. It's a game-long grind that wears down the best on any team. In the SEC, the season's pounding takes a toll, and I think our depth might be more important than star status (which we don't have yet on next year's team). I think we will have 5 DT's fully capable of making plays. I think we will be able to rotate 5 DE's, with 2 capable run stoppers (and hopefully good at sealing the edge) and at least 3 rush specialists (Cooper, Harris, English). Johnson may end up being a good combo. He's hefty and said to be a good mover.

Anything we get from incoming freshmen, I will count as a bonus. I believe almost all will redshirt, but there's always at least one guy who starts fast and lights it up. We have some intriguing prospects coming in as true freshmen. I would guess 2 of the JC transfers (counting McClain as one) will get into the mix with Lamin and Thomas being most needed.

Default Re: South Carolina Is Really, Really Good

I am worried about a couple games. One being the game with UGA even if it is at home. They have a bye week prior to the game as does Auburn. Sounds good to me.
Also, thought I read that the article said we have eight home games. I looked and we only have seven home games with schedules I have checked. Am I reading this wrong?

I think best case scenario is 10-2. Worst case 8-4. At AU and FL will be tough. I'm not so worried about Clemson for some reason.

@ Auburn is very very tough with them off a bye. Not gonna say it can't happen but don't expect to win that 1

And we always drop 1 we shouldn't. So I'll say 10-2

Default Re: South Carolina Is Really, Really Good

Biggest loss we have from last year should be at the tip of everyone's tongues.

It's JD and it's not even close. Losing Shaw is certainly second, but losing the impact Clowney had equals the biggest loss of one player in this school's history, IMO.

It will be overcome, but he changed games, significantly, before the first snap was taken.

I do agree, though, that anything less than winning 10 games should be a huge disappointment.

The Gamecocks are done building with the exception of a stellar player here or there. Now we reload for losses to graduation and NFL.

Default Re: South Carolina Is Really, Really Good

I think Spurrier is going to have a lot of fun this year with Thompson being the best pocket passer he's had since his days at Florida. The O-line is definitely the best it's ever been as well. All the coaching staff has pretty much settled in without any turnover like years prior. The D will look a lot different but with the stellar LB's flying around and our gifted secondary coming in I think it should be pretty exciting. Special Teams has no choice but to improve considering how terrible they were last year, so hopefully they can get it going.

All that said, I think we do pretty well this coming season. Tough to write-off anyone we play but I'm sure it will be exciting nonetheless.

Would have been interested in seeing your prediction for last year. Why exactly do you see a loss to Georgia/Florida & freaking Clemson????? I understand Auburn but come on man............Clemson?????? New QB that has no playing experience & a loss at major skill positions?

Offensively I think we will be fine.

Defensively is more of my concern.

Two games....Auburn and Florida will define the 2014 season. need to AT LEAST split those.

Yes, I know, Georgia and Clemson are our two biggest rivals and can't stand to lose to them, but Georgia's defense will be nasty and will be able to control the clock with Gurley on offense.

That Clemson game, anything goes, especially on the road against a rival. They still have some talent on that team and they are DESPERATE to win.
