Yeeaaaaahhhh.... We still had 366 yards and 4 TD's through the air. That performance could have beat most teams if we had a defense that wasn't made of all new players. And we had that against A&M. ECU COULD beat us, but I think our offense will have a great day.

Look guy, good luck and I hope you don't get embarrassed, but you do realize this is still an SEC team you are facing that had 11 wins each of the last 3 years.
Sadly your thug qb is out for this next game vs nobody state....coincidence

Dude yall could throw for 600 against us or 200. Any ECU fan who can tell you that answer is full of crap. We've got kids in the backfield who took their first snaps last week. Totally unproven secondary on our part. The good part for us is they look to be far more energetic than the last group......bad news is our last group leaked like a sieve and they were their backups.

Naturally.

My last comment might be the most critical -- A&M did the Pirates no favors. The Gamecocks are embarrassed and VERY pissed off.

Chris Johnson and dwayne harris were awful at ECU too. Pound that chest for the offensive talent ATM has put out lately. Manziel will be a broken shell of a crybaby by week 10. I'm betting he ends up Ryan Leaf style. Mike Evans is a stud but seriously I don't see the offensive factory of ATM pushing out wr's or rb's into the nfl so keep it down over there.

Agreed. Solid player. Barring a shocking improvement in the performance of the mostly green Gamecock secondary, Hardy probably gets 100 and a score or two.

The fact is A&M is good, and we were shell shocked. They hit us hard from the start and didn't let up so therefore we couldn't recover. I think we'll be better prepared for this game as you can't overlook any team. A&M is gonna be a force this year. That being said ECU isn't A&M and not even close, so it won't be a repeat of that game.

You guys seem to think you're going to walk in and do the same thing that we did just because you run a spread system kind of like ours and beat up on some mid majors last year. The problem is, you don't run your offense with the talent we do. We have physical freaks as receivers. Our most effective receivers last Thursday, who had the highest per catch yardage (minimum 4 catches), were Pope, Seals Jones, Reynolds, and Noil. The first three are all 6'-4" or taller, with Seals Jones at 6'-6". Noil is a legitimate 4.4 40 athlete with a sub 3.9 shuttle and 44" vertical leap. We have 3-4 other guys who are 6'-4"+ who didn't see playing time, as well as a few other speedsters who are admittedly not as fast as Noil.

It's hard to match up a DB with guys like this because most DB's are between 5'-11" and 6'-1", and it's hard for most guys to cover someone 3-5" taller than they are who is going to have a larger wingspan as well. When you are trying to cover someone like Seals Jones, who is 6'-6" 235 and pretty quick, it's hard to also cover a Pope and Reynolds and Noil or a Clear (6'-6" and 277) at the same time. The offensive schemes we run have a lot to do with our success, but they're designed around the guys on the field.

No offense, but you guys simply don't have the receivers we do. They're not as tall and not as fast, and that's important. For instance, on our third TD, SC had pretty good coverage, but Edward Pope was simply too long for the DB to cover. He had what should have been good position, but Pope was able to extend just a little bit further and make a grab just out of his reach. If Pope was 6'-1" he would not have made the catch.


Your list may not be ****ty, but it's also not a group that can't be physically matched by most secondaries. You can try to exploit the younger corners, but I don't see you getting the near constant 5-10 yard plays that we were. SC's defense is much better than they appear to be, and much better than a lot of SC fans on here would believe. They are still very physical and very capable, if a little inexperienced. IMO, they will have a very good team in two years and I hope we still have some of these guys around the next time we come to Williams Brice. I just don't see you guys getting by USC.

Sorry if I sounded like an a-hole. I apologize

haha this board has gotten so salty lately with visitors asking innocuous questions backed by fairly objective observations. The word "classy" gets thrown around here all the time (not a fan of its usage btw) but it seems some are lacking that around here.

We don't know what was the prob with our defense yet. We're kinda stunned. I was in downtown in Columbia today. People are walking around in a waddle with their arms out in front of them palms down and fish looking eyes.

The guy asked some reasonable questions, so don't understand why some feel compelled to lash out.
Our D was bad, based partly on a terrible gameplan which was made worse by poor execution. I doubt that will happen 2 weeks in a row, in large part because Ward is pretty good and Spurrier is ticked. In addition, our suspect D was made worse by Spurrier abandoning our run game in favor of chunking it all over the field. I think you'll see lots of Davis, Wilds, and Williams this week, resulting in limited possessions for ECU.
You'd probably be in a better situation if we'd beaten A&M, to be honest.

I think our biggest problem last week was that we got thoroughly outcoached, especially on defense. We were prepared for the same offense A&M ran last year and it was nothing like it. And with our young guys there was too much confusion to make adjustments.

45 guys going "Arrrrrrgh" isn't going to be impressive.

BS aside, nice job on UNC and NCSU last year. That must have been cool to shut them up for a while.
