Default Best Overall Year in Your Lifetime for Gamecock Sports

I'm referring to the school/academic year, such as 2010-2011 (fall and spring.)

This is subjective and depends how you weight sports. For me, football is at least 50% of my weighting. If all other sports were great but football was 2-10, I'd be rather bummed. Surely, others will weight it differently.

So, what years do you rate as best and why?

(Mods, plz move if need be.)

1987-88 Football lost only 3 regular season games (close ones to Geogia, Nebraska, and national champion MiamiFL) and finished in the top 15. MBB 19-10, WBB won Metro Conference, and baseball and soccer made the NCAA tournaments.

There are comparable years using the OP's criteria. Lots of youngsters on this board.

Such as? Considering that we have won a couple national titles, I would think any years in which we did not win a national title in a major sport are eliminated. That narrows it down to all but 2 years...

43 years old.
Hard to argue with the 2010-2011 academic year.

But truly the run beginning mid Spring 2010 with baseball through 2013, across the board, is hard to argue with, regardless of your age.

I agree. I was at the Alabama game. The best game at Williams-Brice I've ever been to. It was the first game that they handed out the towels and everyone waved them for "Sandstorm". Incredible.

It is hard to argue with 2010-11. In 1980-81, George Rogers won the Heisman, Zam Frederick won the NCAA scoring title, and baseball played in CWS. Great year as well!

Calendar year 2011 is pretty great.
CWS title
11 win football season
Beat tiggers in basketball

2010 is close, because of SEC east title, but 9-5 record and bowl loss drops that year to 2nd place I'd say
