I agree with your math but I think A&M at home is winnable.

Still don't see what y'all are seeing in Ole Miss. They are currently the 5th worst pass defense in the country, giving up an average of 347.5 yards per game through the air.

http://www.espn.com/college-football...ngYardsPerGame

They are also currently 25th worst for points per game allowed as they give up over 35 PPG.

They also score A LOT. Something that we don't do against almost any defense. Is it a winnable game? Sure. The way our defense has played in the first half of games might allow this game to get out of reach for us though.

I don't think we can outscore them in a shootout, but stranger things have happened.

It will be extremely interesting to see what this thread will do if we beat A&M.

Seems like most people stand by that we may barely make a bowl. If we beat A&M I wonder if that will dramatically change our outlook on the rest of the season.

If we can field a traditional Gamecock defense for 4 quarters... our odds go up greatly and I'd put this into the toss-up category.

This is true, our defense has looked pretty good this year, but they usually have 1 quarter where they play terribly, and then the rest of the way they are playing lights out.

If we're gonna have a bad quarter of football again on defense, I hope TAMU decides to put it through the air instead of run it. We have the #2 secondary in the SEC, so hopefully we could stay strong.

Unfortunately, teams know we struggle to stop the run. And A&M has one of the best rushing attacks in the SEC. I whole heartedly expect them to pound the football and do a little Deshaun Watson on our ass with Mond. We need to load the box and shut it down, and hope our secondary is good enough to stand tall on its own.

Right now I'd say we're going to win 6 games, assuming we make up the Marshall game. If we beat Texas A&M, I'd say 8.

Lose to A&M: 7-5 and the Music City Bowl
Beat A&M: 8-4 and the Gator Bowl

(Assuming we make up Marshall. If we don't, 6-5 or 7-4)

Default Re: Bowl eligible?

After the way Tennessee played this past weekend, I'm not sure we'll get by them in 2 weeks. The staff has a lot of issues to address over the bye, and I'm not sure that they can do enough at this point in the season. This team is what it has shown so far, mediocre on both sides of the ball at best, and I'm really not expecting them to get 3 more wins.

Eh, it was Auburn. I wouldn't call them a good team either.

Just looking forward...I think Tennessee is still winnable, as is Ole Miss and UTC.

The UTC game should count. Coastal is in the FBS now in the Sunbelt.

Plus, they have got to get another game scheduled after Clemson...could still be a 6-7 win season and a bowl berth.

Lose to UT, and things are getting dark.

And our pass game is not lighting it up.

Granted, Ole Miss can be scored on....the players have to execute...from Bentley/Scarnecchia throwing good, catchable balls to our receivers doing that thing they were given a scholarship to do....catch.

Top 25 team that won the West last year, they're pretty damn good. Plus, they have an elite defense, and Tennessee hung 30 on them.

I am beginning to think that we'll be singing, "I'll be home for Christmas..." this year, and no I don't mean we'll be playing on New Year's Day either. If we can get a full game out of Bent, we'll do extremely well. If we only get one quarter out of him like Sat...our players will get to spend some quality time with their families during the holidays. It really is just that simple at this point.
