Default Re: Your excitment level scale 1-10 after Week 2? Mine...a 6.

We have played two teams that stacked the box to take away the run. Against State, we really did not try to run. Against Mizzou, we did not run much until the Second Half, and we used the pass to open up the run. Football 101.

If teams stack the box and we can't run, then that is not a problem - provided that the pass is there. Unless we continue to try to run, which is poor offensive planning. Two Ws means that the run game is not an issue.

It's hard to not look ahead, but the fans can't help it. For the first time in what seems like forever, the program has some positive energy.

That being said, you need to be able to beat Kentucky to get to where Muschamp and everyone else wants to be.

Very pleased where CWM and staff has the program right now. Solid fundementals on the field, seems everyone for the most part knows what they are suppose to do on the field. No real disipline issues to speak of and has beaten 2 teams that most didnt think we would beat this year.
The staff is getting a lot our of this team considering we have some talent and depth issues. I really like where we are and I dont see us taking a step back this year on our accord. I will put my excitement at a 7.

Cautiously optimistic. I feel myself getting excited about where we're heading, buy scared that we might run out of gas towards the end of the season due to depth. Still though put me at 7.

Right now I'd say about a 6. We have shown tremendous improvement, but there are some things we need to work on. Our depth worries me a bit too. Overall though, I thought we'd be 1-1 at this point so I'm a little giddy.

I feel the same way, although I would rate it somewhere around 5.5 to 6 on a scale of 10.

I thought before the season started that we should start off 4-0 if we had a decent team, so my excitement level hasn't changed much. If we beat A&M and/or Arkansas, my optimism will go up.

Default Re: Your excitment level scale 1-10 after Week 2? Mine...a 6.

I'm at a 7. As someone who wasn't bullish about our chances this season, we look like a very good team. NC State was a very good win and any road win in the SEC is valuable.

I think we'll win the Kentucky game and be in the Top 25 afterwards. Once you get past the Kentucky game, a schedule that looked a little gloomy, suddenly looks very favorable:

LA Tech
Imploding Texas A&M
Arkansas
Tennessee
Vanderbilt

To me, @Tennessee is the only one of those that gives me some pause.

If this team doesn't beat themselves and the defense can keep improving, they could be 8-0, or 7-1 going into Georgia.

Default Re: Your excitment level scale 1-10 after Week 2? Mine...a 6.

Tricky question because excitement level is set by many factors. If the scale is to measure whether I think our team has arrived and is going to go undefeated and we are just firing on all cylinders, well hell no, put me down for a 5.

But damn, we are 2- 0 about to play our home opener against an SEC East team at night, everyone wearing black, and I have been missing Williams Brice in my head and heart since last fall, and some other things in my life suck right now and football is something I have really been looking forward to, and I am REALLY DAMN EXCITED to see my Gamecocks beat Kentucky's ass Saturday night!!!

Default Re: Your excitment level scale 1-10 after Week 2? Mine...a 6.

I am at a 6. I agree with those who believe that Kentucky is due for a cocksmashing, and that LA tech is a W. If that pans out, we will be going into a hopefully ranked Tennessee. If we can notch a W in Neyland and @ WB against Vandy, we will be 6-0 and 3-0 in SEC play. I know we have holes and limitations, but when we get that top 25 ranking, it's going to be hard to stay below an 8.

All that being said, the only thing I know for sure is that #Bentleygonslangit.

Default Re: Your excitment level scale 1-10 after Week 2? Mine...a 6.

I am at 11 because we are giving 110 percent and the team, so far, has stay focus.

I am actually thinking 8. We have a long way to go but we are undefeated, have beaten two favored teams away from Willy B (who both will turn out to be pretty good, IMO), and are 1-0 in the SEC with a rare road win. Without really playing well. On top of that, TAMU, Arky, UF, UT, and UK are not looking very scary.

Beat UK and we are in the driver's seat in the East. Beat La Tech to go 4-0 and we are on a roll heading to TAMU. Beat them and I will be at a 9.

Apologies. 4-0 through LA Tech. 8-0 or 7-1 going to Athens is very reasonable. Would probably still get us that top 25.
