That is simply BITCHING!!! I would love to see that be your 4 team playoff. I'll take my Cocks over any of those teams. I'd take the team we just beat Wisconsin with and punch Florida State dead in the jaw

Wow!!!! That's incredible. I had my hopes for #5, but #4? Even better. And look where Clemson ended up. Lol. I wonder if they'll be in our faces now about their win in the Orange Bowl. The Gamecocks have consistently finished ahead of them in the polls the last few years and yet they still want to brag about going to a BCS bowl that HAD to take them because of the BCS rules. We have something big to fire back at them. Loving it!!

So stoked...

I have about a 3 hour road trip with a buddy from Tacoma to Portland for a Trailblazers game...

He is an Oregon fan...I am glad I can bring this up!

My dad and I talked this over and over for the last few days.

I just *knew* Bama wouldn't drop below us and they'd have to jump Oklahoma ahead of us...

I am glad I was wrong.

This new found respect bodes well for us going into next year with the 4 team playoff.

I want that benefit of the doubt!

We beat 3 teams that finished in the top 10. Two of those wins were on the road.

The SEC has 3 of the top 5 teams.

Default Re: Final AP poll puts us at No. 4...wow.

* #4 in both the final Polls !!
* Beat 1 team in the Top 5, 3 teams in the top 10 and 5 of the top 25
* Ended up beating two BCS Bowl Winners and six Bowl winning teams
* #2 team overall (final Ranking) in the SEC
* One of only four teams in the nation with three consecutive 11 win seasons
* #5 in the nation on the list of teams for most consecutive Top 25 Ranking (63 weeks and counting)
* Nation's Longest Consecutive Home Winning Streak (18 in a row and counting)
* A fifth straight state championship


This Ladies & Gentlemen, with the youngest team in the country and after losing
to an unranked team and basically a week away from dropping outside
the Top 25 for the first time in two years at one point in the season.

Say whatever you want to, but this was Coach Steve Spurrier's BEST
SINGLE SEASON COACHING JOB OF HIS CAREER ! How in the hell he held
this team together before mid season with a defense of about 60%
Freshmen or first time starters, and a defense that was lacking the
basics of assignments and fundamental tackling skills was beyond
Amazing, and yet we ended up the fourth best team in the nation when
the smoke cleared and the final seconds ticked off the clock to end the season. ..... WOW !!!

What a great job by Coach Adams, Coach Botkin, and coach Brown to
bring that group together, and hats off to Coach Spurrier for holding the
season together when a lot of fans were jumping ship after the UT loss.

BEST SINGLE SEASON COACHING JOB OF HIS CAREER, Best single season
for the Gamecocks to date, with even better yet to come.

You also want to bet that SOS's post game remarks that led to national media attention about the many positives of our season played a part in this final poll.

The man is a master. Played Dabo and the media like a Stradivarius, all with what seemed like a mild pat on the back for the team and a small poke in the ribs to Clempson.

Unreal. There were days that we would end up 4th in our division and not be overly disappointed with it.

Can't believe how far Steve Spurrier has brought this baby.

Fixed it for you Spurty - UCF, Mizzou & as much as we hate to give them credit - Clemmons.
