Default I'm Getting Stoked!

This game is going to be a difficult fight to the finish.

I LOVE games like that!

Wisconsin is going to bring it, and we aren't even favored!

(Realize that the line may change over time, but still, that says something about our opponent).

This game will be a litmus test for Whammy and Adams and Botkin in regard to our ability to scheme for the run.

We all know it's coming. We know that they won't abandon it. We know that stopping it is the key to the game.

HOW WILL THE GAMECOCKS DO?

This one isn't going to be on Connor's shoulders. It's all up to our defense. If they falter, we will lose. If they rise to the challenge, we will win.

Connor and company on offense will get their job done -- you can count on that.

With this much preparation, there will be no excuses.

We can do this!

And the weather will probably be perfect!

...and it's on the first, when everyone has the day off.

This will be freaking awesome! Time to get jacked up!

Badger fan here similarly stoked. I am scared of Connor Shaw. I haven't seen much of USC this year, but I can't get over how he only has 1 INT this year. It doesn't compute. I INT is what most QBs throw in a half. Wisconsin's defense has been pretty good all year (among the best we've ever had), but has a propensity to give up long gains over the top. Just keep throwing deep early and often. Any QB with a pulse can throw on WI and now we face a great QB.

Default Re: I'm Getting Stoked!

Phil Steele was on Cowherd the other day and I am paraphrasing here...

The computer says Gamecocks 22-19 but I am really high on Wisky. They were a top 10 team before they came out and surprised us all and lost a terrible game at the end of the season. He thinks this will be one of the best bowl games of the season and be decided by a fg either way.

People do realize that we are 2nd in the conference against the run, right? I know at times people have moved the ball on us, but it's not like we have been giving up chunks all year on the ground.

I know Golightly has made some big strides throughout the season but do ya'll think we will put in a lb in his spot since they try to run the ball down your throat. I know our guys will rotate but I was just wondering what ya'll thought.

Some guys just know how to win and losing takes effort for them. Connor is one of those guys. He gives 110% on every single play and he is highly intelligent. He knows how damaging a single interception can be and he doesn't tend to take foolhardy risks. His passing accuracy used to be all over the map but he has worked on his accuracy and it is incredible now. He can throw deep with ease now, where that used to be a struggle for him. He has a velvet touch

Connor is a jackrabbit when it comes to tucking the ball. He is incredibly fast on a dead run.

He doesn't have "happy feet" anymore because his line is giving him a pocket that doesn't collapse easily. In previous years, the pocket imploded and he would take off running early. That doesn't happen much anymore.

Connor doesn't "juke" much at all, so he doesn't run like Manziel. He makes a bee line and he frequently hook slides, but that's because coach will bench him if he puts his body in harm's way. He's just too valuable to our offense to risk it all for the sake of a few extra yards.

This matchup will make our team better against the run next year. We haven't seen a run game like this so far this year. Hopefully we don't give up any deep play action passes while focusing so much on their run game.

Yes, I am thinking Diggs would be more effective against a power run team.

I love Connor, but damn man. I can't gloss over the fact that his bi-polar play has our offense ranked in the bottom half of the conference. We are fortunately 10-2 BECAUSE of our defense. Our offense is bordering on below average and Connor has much to do with that.

I love what Connor has done here, God Bless him, but he is not the ultimate QB.

Our defense has carried this team all year and I expect nothing less in the bowl. The offense will struggle like it has all year. Those are the facts.

I wouldn't mind seeing 5 down linemen from time to time on obvious running situations with Gerald Dixon in Chaz' place and Chaz moving to the outside. Still have a pass rush this way and should do a better job of gap control. But I'm sure that won't happen...

Can't agree with this. D was very soft the first half of the season and it was our O that carried us. D certainly got better as the season progressed and that is what you expect from any team but certainly a team as young as ours. I think you look at the game by game stats you will see our O was on a record setting pace about midway through the season. Tailed off at the end a bit but other than the UT game not below average.

I didn't say the offense was below average.

The offense didn't tail off at the end, they actually picked up thanks to Coastal. They were ranked 9th in SEC scoring offense.

Final rankings...

Total offense ranked 33rd in the nation; SEC rank 7th.
Scoring offense 33rd; SEC rank 7th.

3rd ranked SEC defense.
2nd ranked SEC scoring defense.
2nd ranked SEC rush defense.
6th SEC pass defense.

The facts are the defense carried the season like every other year under SOS.
