Very shallow and superficial article. Guy doesn't seem to know crap about either team.

I stopped reading at "South Carolina did an amazing job of somehow getting horribly outplayed at times by NC State, and still winning."

He basically has the Gamecocks winning by 13 vs a 7 point line ... so no need to attack him on an amature thing ... like grammar. The internet has given everyone a platform - like this dude. Take the 13 point prediction and move along. Might give someone the idea that Gamecock are whiners.

This. Everyone that stopped reading at whichever thing annoyed them missed the part where he predicted us to win by double-digits. People get butt-hurt too easily.

It doesn't matter how many yards a team gets! It is about how many points they have at the end!! I'll take most points any day!!

Ok, but I can't really be expected to take his opinion or prediction seriously when he has zero understanding of how our team has played. Great, some guy with no knowledge has a prediction that I'm supposed to be happy about? If you want to get excited about predictions from people like that, then nobody is stopping you. I, on the other hand, would like to see people who want to be viewed as sports journalists actually do their homework and write something coherent about our team. Then I will take their prediction seriously.

It's called game management and quality coaches know how to do it. You don't take risky shots for style points when your special teams play has put you in a position to not need it. You don't risk overworking your playmakers to the point of injury, if you're winning. Just because we didn't get gaudy stats doesn't mean it was unobtainable. Had both games turned into a shoot-out, who's to say? No one can say. And that is precisely why the team with the most points wins, not the team with the most offense.

Again, I think 90%+ of regular Cockytalkers know a lot more about the Gamecocks than the pundits, who have to know about 130 teams in FBS, or at least 14 teams in the SEC. And who move onto other sports after football season.

Which makes it funny when those same knowledgeable people are surprised when the talking head does not know everything about the team.

Make note of the point spread and move on.

I think it's reasonable to expect a sports prediction article to have at least some understanding of the teams they are giving a prediction about.

It's not "whining" to point out how he trashes how Carolina played the first 2 games, to only go on to say Kentucky won their games, doesn't matter how.

Some of us actually like to read articles about the team that have some sort of sense to them, not just look at the prediction.

Exactly. I don't mind reading predictions from pundits, even the ones that predict us losing. It was really fun to prove a lot of the "experts" wrong when it came to the NC State game. The part that I can't stand is the fact that some of these experts have no standard by which they assess teams. We win handedly at Mizzou, but their high flying offense got a decent amount of yards, and that makes us a liability. Meanwhile, Kentucky scrapes by some crap team at home, but who cares, right? Nothing actually matters to these "journalists" other than their predictions which are completely based on misinformation about the team and their play.
