Winning the SEC gains national respect. Beating clem5on does not.

Default Re: Would you rather: Beat Clemson or Win SEC

Since they ask every year, guess we'd better dumb this thing down so even the taters have a chance to understand.

If I were a jockey, I'd prefer:
A) riding a nag.
B) winning the Derby.
C) riding Secretariat to the Triple Crown.

Now here's one for the taters:
After 5 in a row, Clemson is a _____ to USC.
A) roadblock
B) speed bump
C) autobahn

To Gamecock Nation the answer is obvi. To the taters? Not so much. To them it's a brainteaser, a quandry. How do we know that? 'Cause they keep asking the same stupid question every year. LOL. Keep 'em guessing.

To offer an alternative suggestion:
"What would you enjoy more - Beating Clemson or winning the SEC?"
Definitely the SEC win.
As far as Clemson goes, I don't see this as an even trade off. Winning the SEC is tougher to accomplish than beating Clemson and offers a chance to be in the playoffs, so it is the more desirable goal.

SEC

I dont live near many Clemson fans/grads, shit or SEC grads/CFB fans for that matter. I actually find it cool when I meet one of them (Clemson fans/grads) considering there aren't many. We are the lone southerners/CFB fans.

That said SEC title would help lead to a national title and that would be much better for the program.

Win the SEC, no brainer. Win the SEC and your in the playoff with a shot at the NC. I'll take that over bragging rights any day.

Default Re: Would you rather: Beat Clemson or Win SEC

This question is really difficult to answer. I absolutely consider winning the SEC to be more prestigious/important/other buzz words. The problem that I have is that I also don't want to deal with listening to Clemson fans talk about beating us the year we finally won it.

If you are in NYC, the alumni association meets at The Mason Jar on East 30th just off Park. The Mason Jar donated $50,000 to the university to be the official NYC Gamecock bar.

They have a huge alumni participant and have about 300 people for every game.

Both. But if it came down to 1 or the other. Win the SEC championship.

Is this even a question? Win the SEC of course!!

I think this is the problem with our schools fans. College football is much bigger than a rivalry game.

If we win the SEC, I feel pretty confident we just beat the hell out of Clemson the week prior to the SEC-CG

[quote=bcolinc;4235831]I can say this much. I'd love to win the SEC, but beating Clempson has become so fun. We beat them, we have a great offseason. We win the SEC (but lose to Clemson) we have a huge recruiting class and offseason, but have to deal with the "Clemson is the SEC champion" BS talk. I think we will beat Clemmy and take the SEC title in the same year. That way we can all sleep good at night. Besides, we all know we have been flirting with this idea for the past 3 years. The time is now.

This is the right answer. But it would have to be both, or no National Title anyway because
1) If we are good enough to win the National Title we would not lose to Clemson, and
2) If we lost to Clemson it is very doubtful that we would make the playoff anyway. Even if we did win the SEC.
