DE is even scarier. No depth and no pass rushers, which could ultimately create huge problems in the secondary. LB will be fine and DT should be fine, but that's about it.
Thanks man.

We have depth at DE we just don't know if any of them can actually play at an SEC level. Dixon has been solid as a 2 deep player. Who knows what we will get from English, Harris, Johnson, Cooper, and Washington.

I'm a pessimist, but I see us taking a sizable step back this year. I'm not sold on Dylan as an SEC-caliber QB and I think we'll struggle mightily given some inexperience and personnel deficiencies on defense, particularly at DE

Here are my Carolina and SEC predictions for the upcoming year:

South Carolina 2014 Schedule
Texas A&M Loss
East Carolina Win
Georgia Loss
at Vanderbilt Win
Missouri Win
at Kentucky Win
Furman Win
at Auburn Loss
Tennessee Win
at Florida Loss
South Alabama Win
at Clemson Loss
7-5 (4-4 SEC)

Overall SEC Predictions

SEC East
Georgia 11-1 (7-1)
Florida 8-4 (5-3)
USC 7-5 (4-4)
Missouri 7-5 (3-5)
Tennessee 6-6 (3-5)
Vanderbilt 5-7 (1-7)
Kentucky 3-9 (0-8)

SEC West
Alabama 11-1 (7-1)
Auburn 11-1 (7-1)
LSU 10-2 (6-2)
Texas A&M 9-3 (5-3)
Miss State 8-4 (4-4)
Ole Miss 7-5 (3-5)
Arkansas 4-8 (1-7)

Alabama over UGA in the SEC Championship

As I said earlier, I'm a pessimist. While I do think we'll go 7-5, I also recognize that prediction is near the "worst-case scenario" for the Gamecocks, barring a horrific rash of injuries or unforeseen circumstances. I hope I'm wrong and the Gamecocks far exceed my expectations, I'll be at all the home games and I'm going to try and make all the road games

8 wins is my low prediction, 15-0 is my high prediction, so probably anywhere in b/w makes sense.

We are going to need to develop an elite pass rush using unproven players. We are going to need young inexperienced CB's to step up early and perform at an elite level. We are going to need to punt the ball and net more than 40 yards. If all this happens, we'll have a playoff team, if it doesn't, we'll fall short of that. I think the offense is going to be awesome, we just have some big ?'s on Defense and Spec Teams.

Ah June, the most pessimistic time of the year for Gamecock football fans.

We've had major questions going into ever season in the last 3 years. Maybe not as many, but the coaches did their job and coached up the boys and we went 11-2. We return one of the best offenses in the SEC this year and I believe Dylan is putting in the work.

I'm not looking for sunshine pumping but 7-5? really? Have we not recruited SEC caliber players in the last 3 years? Or are you guys just expecting former back-ups to not get any better and continue playing like back-ups?

We had a very young team last year and won 11 games. I get the question marks but we are still going to have a solid season at worst.

Don't see us losing to Texas A&M at home, and clempson will be crashing and burning. Other than that, I agree. I don't think we can stop Gurley or Chubb. Florida, because we are on the road its a toss up. I think we lose to Auburn and UGA at a minimum.

You guys must be completely oblivious to our LB's returning this year.

I've been wrong before, but I really believe that those who say this season is going to be a step back from the past few years are in for a big surprise.

A dominant offensive line will take open up the running game and take the pressure off Thompson to be a game saver. The defense may not be as good, but it won't have to be. And the schedule sets up nicely.

Cocknblue, I spent the whole week in London doing the deal for Spurs with Pochettino. I feel much about him than AVB or Sherwood. The players like him as well. Feel much better about next year. Come to a Spurs game with me as my guest next season.

Has everyone lost their minds?
JD will not be missed as much as some here may think. The D Line will be fine!!!
With our continually improving LBs (run stuffing), and a new "tradition" of pass rush expectations, our DB positions may not be that critical.
We have a proven QB with a different set of skills than Shaw, but who has a better head ball coach to utilize his talent?
We have Mike Fricken Davis.
We have a good, if not great, offensive line!
My stars! If we do not beat the fool out of A&M, I will be disappointed!
The biggest game I am concerned about has more questions for our opponent than for us, the Georgia Bulldogs.
IF, IF, IF, IF, we beat Georgia, I could give a rat's patootie about Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Misery, you name it, because for the first time in a few years, the winner of Ga vs. USC is going to win the East and perhaps even beat Auburn twice!!!
Alabama sucks!!!! We'll beat them too, if necessary!!!!

Buck up boys!!!!!!!

The ones that allowed Gurley over 130 yards in our last game and 227 rush yards total? Yes they've improved, but the dline is not as talented. Just my opinion.

My hope is that Darius puts on some real weight this summer. I don't see how anyone says we can not rush the passer, that is what he does best. Stopping the run will be tough....

They will be more improved, and playing them at home this year I think makes the difference. IF we are as loud this time around as we were last time they came, it will be something special to watch.

Atleast 9-3, not including the bowl game.

If you look at where we lost players, with the exception of DE the TALENT dropoff is slim to none. We lost a lot at CB but also are bringing in 3 All American's and a son of one of the best corners to play the game arguably. Not to mention, our safety tandem is one of the tops in the league with Elder, Gurley, Williams, and Marcus. That will also allow us to maybe see one of them guys play corner more and have experience out there. DB is probably the easiest transition and we have some athletes and talent there.

DE position is concerning because of the lack of star talent and experience HOWEVER we are running a 3-4 Defense more likely then not and that plays into our strengths considering how solid our LB core is. Lets not forget Darius English is finally putting on the weight he needs too, Gerald Dixon has looked solid during his action. It'll be interesting to see what English, Dixon, Cooper, and possibly Washington do at DE. We won't be the threats we've been on the outside but we will be "just good/average enough" to not lose a game because of our ends.

Thompson is going to be fine and he will have his rough moments but he also has some very talented guys to throw the ball to and hand the ball off too. Mike Davis, Brandon Wilds, David Williams, and Shon Carson give us plenty of depth at RB. Shaq Roland is finally going to be the guy we expected him to be coming out of HS and Cooper, Bryd and Jones are going to be good as well. Our TE's HAVE to get involved more for our offense to be as good as it can. If that happens then we will be in for possibly a special season.

Default Re: 2014 Expectations

Since Steve has been in Columbia, Georgia has scored: 18 in 2006, 14 in 2008, 6 in 2010, 7 in 2012. That's an average of 11 points. Thought that was worth mentioning.

Another FFOTD: If you average the points scored by each team since 2005, the score is 22-22. Shows how close its been lately. Also, it's kinda weird how the high scoring games have been in Athens. In 2009, 11, 13- at least one team got into the 40s. In Columbia, the most points scored by one team was 35, and that game was not even close.
