Default What would be your definition of a successful season?

I always take the week or two before the season to try and define what I would consider a successful season. The past 3-4 years have all surpassed my expectations and I hope this year will do the same once it's all said and done. This year will be unique with the College Football Playoff system and I'm anxious to see how that will play out but I'm curious, what would you define as a successful season for the Gamecocks this year?

I'd like to see us continue to improve and to do that we have to win at least as many as last year and not slip up to a team we should beat.

12 wins. It means, at the very least, we get to Atlanta (unless another SECE team goes 8-0 in the conference, then we would win our bowl game to get the 12th win).

No one really knows how good teams will be. As long as we beat every team we should beat (my guess is all but one, but others could step up...UF, UGA) and not gag against an inferior team, I will be thrilled.

I think best case is to win the SEC Championship.

I think 9 wins would be considered a successful season. I just don't believe the defense will be strong enough to take us further than that this year.

I too think the apex of our season would be the SEC Championship. Winning it may knock a West team out of the top 4 though, hard to say.

Atlanta, and at least one of old bcs bowl/playoff. Our defense maybe young, but mizzoou, uga, and uf have more questions marks/variables in my opinion.

9 wins is what I have in mind. I just don't want lose that game we should win (UGA, KY, and Tenn would fall into that category for me).

Default Re: What would be your definition of a successful season?

For me to view the season as successful I want two of four things to happen.

1. Win the East
2. Go undefeated at home
3. Win 11 games
4. Beat Clemson

If we can manage any two of those I'll be happy. Granted, if any two of them were to happen it is highly likely a third will occur. I'd love to keep our streak against Clemson alive but I would trade a Clemson win if we could keep the home win streak and go to Atlanta.

I agree about the defense, but I'm going with eight wins.

It will help playing in Columbia but to put UGA in a category with Tenn and Kentucky (while not mentioning Vandy or A&M) seems a little off.

sweep our east games... make it to atl ... that would represent positive growth but in all honesty would still be somewhat disappointing if we didnt win the sec or/and make the playoff

Default Re: What would be your definition of a successful season?

I get the skepticism with the defense but I'm not writing them off yet. I mean the linebackers should be good, the safeties should be good, and I really think this D line may perform just as well as last years. JD had a hard time last year because of double and triple teams and that allowed some other guys opportunities. I think we the 3-4 mixed in we will have a good front and get plenty of pressure on the QB.

My biggest concerns with the defense will be stopping the run and how the young corners come along. However, the first three challenge the DBs will face(A&M, UGA, and Mizzou) all come in the first month of the season and all come at home. I think QB pressure and the WB crowd will help slow down those offenses enough to help out the young corners. And by the time they get a road challenge at Auburn they will have all had a good amount of game experience.

The game that scares me the most is UGA because of my previously mentioned concerns regarding the run defense. With it being so early in the season, UGA is really going to be the first time we get a chance to see a running attack. By the end of the Georgia game we should be able to make a much more education and accurate prediction of the remainder of the season.

Totally successful but not wildly great season = making it Atlanta. Good season is 10 wins and beat clemson and georgia.
