Why worry about playing for next year?

We need to worry about playing THIS year.

It's one loss. Period.

While I don't like losing any game, I'd rather lose at the beginning of the year instead of the end of the year. We have plenty of time to make up ground.

Pretty much the entire team played poorly last night. Along with that, it appeared to me that our planning and preparation for this game was subpar.

Maybe there were too many distractions, too much hype, the giant SOS banner, the "Believer" video, the premature NFL aspirations of some of our guys...maybe it was some of all.

We won 11 games three years straight running the ball, controlling tempo, and mixing in passes, along with a solid D. We beat Clemson 5 years straight, and they run a similar offense to what A&M did, except they add in more screens. We beat them using that same blueprint.

Think back to SOS's earlier years here, every time we lost he'd abandoned what was working and went to that damn "chuck and duck" offense.

We have the personnel to run the ball, control the clock, and still mix in passes. The D looked inexplicably bad, some of which may have been due to mixing in the 3-4, some may have been due to guys thinking they're NFL ready when they're not, and some may have been due to our policy of not hitting hard during practice (to avoid injuries).

I'm not a negative Nellie. I think we can still have a great season.

Seems like we should address the issue with the game and not go bench the reason it wasn't 52-0.

Adams Davis and Roland have a great shot at coming back. If Davis and Roland keep playing the way they did, they won't be drafted

The Seniors are a given to be gone.

As for the guys that still have eligibility left, they may be making a huge mistake by leaving early. It seems like no one in our program learns from other's mistakes.

There are a limited amount of openings at the next level. It would seem guys would want to position themselves as good as possible, but they're deciding way too soon to split.

I think that was a big part of the problems Vic and Kelcey had last year, they had "NFL'itis", and it dramatically affected their play.

How do know that next year Scarnacchia or Nunez won't beat out Mitch? So far Mitch hasn't convinced Spurrier that he's the #2 guy yet over a walk on. Dylan still gives us our best chance of winning right now but once the east is completely out of reach maybe then Spurrier might consider his other options if Dylan can't get his completion rate up.

Dylan playswith no heart. Not only were the reciever giving him mouth. I also notice everytime he was off, he be signaling it was his fault, there was no fight or fire in him.

I think the only ones that played with any fire was the receivers and tight ends. Everyone else seemed to be going through the motions.

We missed an opportunity to play a back up for sure when our D did not try and stop them on the last drive.

3. Our secondary will be much improved next year and we will have a pass rush to compliment them. We have to live with their mistakes this year.- Possibly

Thoughts? Also, I would play Williams until Davis decides he wants to play.-Umm, No.
Just my thoughts.

Out of all of this overreacting, I can say I wouldn't mind seeing Williams get a few touches since the run game was one spot where we were actually deficient.

I know Gamecock fans want to plug in a new piece or two and suddenly solve the whole problem but when you give up nearly 700 yards and 52 points at home, changing the QB or the RB ain't gonna make much of a difference.
