As to the reference of the comment, "Wait 'til next year" that I've been reading from various contributors. I have one question for you... "Why not this year?" We're experienced all over the field, we're packed with talent, we have a very favorable schedule (save Jordan-Hare). We currently have a Top-5 Recruiting Class. Why not bump it up a notch to continue the momentum? We will play in the SECCG this December. Whether or not we'll beat Auburn or Alabama I have no clue - and the bowl game is always up in the air until after that week. But we will end up ranked in the Top 5 once again. All we need from here on out is a majority of Top 10 classes and we'll get there.

We have no elite pass rushers and a young inexperienced secondary. If we couldn't win the East last year despite fielding probably the best team in Gamecock history, what makes you think we'll win it this year? I'm all for being optimistic, but I just don't see us winning the East this year. I fully expect this team to take a step back this season.


2015 will also be a tough year for us. New QB, a depleted O-line, and inexperience at TE, but defensively we're going to be VERY strong. Which is why I started this thread saying 2016 could be the year. We're going to have experience at every position.

Reloading! We have been recruiting very well recently and yes most of the guys are not household names yet but we have talented players that can step up for us this year and exceed the last 3 years production.

Ok, you don't need ELITE PASS RUSHERS when you have some pretty dang good linebackers, one of them I categorize as Elite. What makes me, and others think we win it this year? Schedule is different, difficult teams we get at home. You don't see us winning the east, but I do. I do not expect this team to "Take a step back" because we are beyond taking steps backwards.

As for 2015, how will it be tough? Connor Mitch will have plenty of reps this season, O-line will not be depleted, and TE will be fine with Adams at the helm.
Not to mention the receivers we have been bringing in year after year. Defense I agree with, and special teams should have a kicker with the ability to make any kick, just need to find a punter.

Connor Mitch isn't even 2nd on the depth chart. There are some things going on with him.

Adams is going pro if he has the season everyone in the program is expecting.

O-Line is losing 3 possible all Americans and if Matulis gets hurt again he is probably done.

Pharoh Cooper, Deebo Samuel, and a bunch of true and redshirt freshmen will probably make up the receiving corp.

If Brandon Wilds, Shon Carson, and David Williams all return then at least we will have a respectable backfield.

If we get some of the guys left in the 2015 class, 2016-2017 is going to be awesome.

Better not be, or somebody isn't doing their job. We shouldn't be in a situation where we take a major step back after what we've done record wise the last three years. No more bad seasons!

I just think it's an exciting time to be a gamecock. We've got haters saying this could be an 8 or 9 win season this year. It hasn't been too long ago that any gamecock fan would have been thrilled with that number of wins. We are trending in the right direction even if we have an off year or two.

I would not call the people who are predicting an 8 or 9 win season a "hater." An 8 or 9 win season is a very real possibility. We have some question marks regarding our defense. Plus, we have to play at Auburn, at Florida, and at Clemson. People need to realize, Clemson will eventually beat us. Too many on here think they're never going to beat us again, but it will happen, and this year could be the year depending on how their offense turns out. Georgia is also a toss up game and let's not forget about our WTF game we seem to have every year. So, 8 or 9 wins is very much a possibility.

After more than 50 years I can tell you an 8 or 9 win season is very respectable!

I was trying to find info for a player in the Brad Scott error....um..era, and googled him. I saw this article about a game and we had 5 wins at that point and we had to win 1 against UT, UF, Arkansas or Clemson to get bowl eligible. I remember seasons like that.....and we didn't get there.

So much better now.

The interview the other week with SoS he said Mitch was still 2nd on the depth chart but as far as fall is concerned the decision to keep him there has not been made. I thought he looked good in the spring game. Time will tell, but I believe he is our backup as of right now.

I expect more this year because we have a solid quarterback, potential jailbreaks at receiver, a big play threat in Cooper, a great running back and all-SEC linemen. Defensively, I believe we have linemen ready to step up, good linebackers who will become great, and yes, a questionable d backfield, whose answer awaits the first game.

As mentioned by others, take a look at the schedule.

Texas A&M is the perfect first game for us. Season opening, cross-divisional SEC game, on a Thursday night, in OUR house, and we have Coach Spurrier. How would you like to be in nouveau riche Sumlin's baby booties right then?

Aggies defense has no where to go except improve upon being last in the SEC, especially without Manziel to bail them out. We should run all over them. We should take an early lead, pressure their inexperienced quarterback to throw (behind a solid line), which is going to create opportunities for our defensive backs, and I believe that they will rise to the challenge!

We should win that game, have another week with a very good, pig-skin chuckin' East Carolina team, and then be ready for the BooDawgs.

Which reminds me, speaking of recruiting wealth, our coach knows how to get five-star play out of three-star men, which I believe will be evident at the conclusion of game three. And then, we are rolling!

This is our year boys!
