We, as the fans, have a right to be upset. WE fund this whole thing. Fans buy the tickets. Fans pay for the seat licenses. Fans buy the concessions. Fans buy the team apparel. Fans donate to the Gamecock Club. Without the fans, this whole thing goes away. No fancy weight room. No practice facilities. None of it.

When WE invest our hard-earned money in the program we have every right to demand and expect a good product.

So you're darn right we as the consumers of this product have every single doggone right to be upset when our investment goes unrewarded.
You're pretty angry, especially at a bunch of 17, 18, 19, 20, and 21 year old kids who want to contend for SEC Titles, Heismans, Playoffs, Bowls, etc. I'm sure they're highly disappointed in themselves after the way the whole team played.

Maybe if it pisses you off that you're spending money supporting those kids you should quit spending it on them and instead spend it on anger therapy.

I don't think the team or the fans will miss you.

We have been over-rated many times in the past, after reflecting on it I am only mad at myself for believing the coach's preseason hype and their sycophant's on message boards and in the media.

Exactly Right.
I don't have a problem with losses if the other team is better...losses happen.
But to lose the way we did, where the players looked completely outclassed and completely unprepared is infuriating.
IT looked like our D coaches took the whole summer off and didn't watch a lick of TAMU film.

If we don't see improvement in a week, or God forbid a regression, Deke, Sands and Ward need to be out the door (Botkin I'm a fan of...he was actually coaching his guys during the game..might explain the fight he and Adams had last season on the sideline).

You do have the right to feel that way I am sure many of the fans do. But have been dealing with it in other ways.
