Default I'm not buying the hype, sorry!

This team will be good...I'm thinking 10-win season after bowl win, but I don't see why people are saying this is the team to get us an SEC title. DT is a major drop off after Shaw, no Clowney to take the pressure off the D line, no Bruce for the clutch 3rd or 4th down catch, an injury prone RB, and developing secondary. We do have a manageable schedule, but the East looks very competitive this year. Just a few close losses and the title game is toast. The best real chance we had for a title was last season. Don't get all madbro, just educate me on what you super fans are giddy about, cuz I'm not sure I see a juggernaut here.

Jesus step back from the ledge.

We won without Lattimore.
We won with Clowney at maybe 50% (NFL and Foot Issue)
We won with Shaw Hurt.
We won without Alshon.
We won without Kenny and Sidney.
We won without Melvin Ingram.
We won without Eric Norwood.

See the trend?

If no one ever stepped up, no team will ever win.

We will be fine.

And ALL the teams we are playing have also had losses.

We aren't the only team to lose key players, however the difference of late is that the Gamecocks now reload instead of rebuild.

We lost Stephon Gilmore and Melvin Ingram stepped up.

We lost Melvin Ingram and Devon Taylor stepped up.

We lost Devon Taylor and JD Clowney stepped up.

See the pattern here?

The season hasn't started, we're all undefeated, the best any team can do right now is a national championship and the worst is to not win a game. Right now, we have an opportunity to talk best case. It's still in reach.

Let's just enjoy the positivity while we have the chance. We can lament about a dropoff and a disappointment when and if it happens. For the first time in a long time as a Gamecock fan, I can, again, look at the guys we've got and say "You know what? They're going to be pretty good." 0-11 really wasn't so long ago. I remember what that was like. We've come a long way and right now, it would do us all a lot of good to just take a deep breath and be thankful for how far we've come. Because a national title or a no-win season may lie in wait later. But right now, and always,it's great to be a Gamecock.

You have valid points when you look at this team objectively. Question marks at Corner and basically zero experience there and question marks in finding a pass rush.

This Offense however has a chance to take some of the pressure off of the Defense for a change if DT and MD and other key players stay healthy.

If we have some guys step up on D at DE and CB this could be a special year.

Get to Atl and we'll have a puncher's chance.

Idk if DT will be a dropoff from connor production wise. As long as DT plays like hes always played he shpuld throw more yards and TDs then Shaw did in a season.

But will he throw more interceptions? Almost certainly. And he probably wont be able to convert those tough 3rd downs like Shaw always somehow did.

Me and my girl used to always joke. Wed be like Shaw sucked the whole game but somehow still played good enough to do somethin crazy and end up winning. Lol

Old Carolina strikes again. Always expecting the worst. Most every team has issues, there isn't a perfect team out there. I swear it seems like some of you are just waiting for us to fall flat on our face, and then say I told you so. Guess what, those days are gone!

I'm not buying the negative bullshit attitude a week before the season starts. There is only one rational reason to post such junk. Its because a fan can go back and say "I predicted it". I find that self centered at the least. But, I am also one that doesn't play the season prediction threads because my prediction is always "undefeated" and it'll stay that way until some other team proves me wrong. Its cool though bro, I'm predicting you're wrong.

I think we need the offense to control the games more this year. Those tough third downs that Connor would convert is the key for Dylan. He needs to able to snap off accurate passes under pressure on third down. That's why I have harped on his completion percentage being around mid 60's for our offense to be elite.

Does Evilchicken do this every year? Post a underwhelming prediction.

I suspect he does it so he can come back later on and call people sunshine pumpers and say, "I told you so. See how smart I am."

Yep 2nd down is going to be huge this year. We need 3rd and 4s not 3rd and 7s consitently.
