Default Early Pre-Season Predictions

Tony Barnhart and Athlon Sports release preseason predections for the SEC East.

I like Barnhart's a lot better. Athlon has never thought very highly of the Gamecocks in the preseason for as long as I can remember.

Default Re: Early Pre-Season Predictions

Barnhart had us losing to Ole Miss on the road for no other reason than it's on the road. Ole Miss is going to suck. Suck hard. By that point in the season, the fans would have given up and no one gets too geeked up to play the Gamecocks right now. I like the win against UGA, but don't see anyway we drop the Ole Miss game. Which, even Florida loss, would put us tied with UGA and winning the tie breaker. Going to Atl!

The Athlon doesn't say who we lose to. I'm assuming it's UGA, Florida, TAMU and a mystery SEC team? Ole Miss? UT? Who knows. To me, that's about the worst case scenario but still feasible.

Ole Miss is a classic trap game. First road game in over a month against an unmotivated Ole Miss team that will be in front of a sleepy crowd. Ole Miss won't be that good, but they could still surprise a team or two. I could kinda see his reasoning, but it's still a very winnable game.

I agree with 9-3, but losses to UGA, Clemson and Florida/Ole Miss instead.

I do not see the loss to Florida. It's in the Swamp, but after Jake's appearance in the Swamp went so poorly, I expect him to really want to play well in that one. Oh, and we have a coach that keeps that one circled on his private calendar. Florida will get wins because they'll have better talent than a number of the teams they'll play ... because they're Florida, but Florida is far from contending in the East again.

Yep. I'd be disappointed with a 7-5 record. We need to do everything possible to get to 9 wins and then a bowl game win for 10 games. (at least)

It's going to depend on how quickly Emory Jones gets up to speed. I don't think they can win with Franks or Trask because they aren't threats to run the ball but if Jones is in there, they are going to be a handful.

I actually think Florida might be pretty decent this year, mainly because of Mullen. I also agree that Ole Miss is a trap game. Remember UT a few years back? What were they 3-5 or something when we got beat?

Iím assuming youíre talking about 2013. Wikipedia says UT was 3-3 coming into that game and we were 5-1. Win that game and thereís a good chance we win the SEC but thatís another story for another day.

But I do think UF will have a decent team this year. They were bad last year, but not far off from having a 9 win season (2016). Plus, Gainesville has not been very good for us every time but two. If it was at home, Iíd be much more confident.

The Florida game is really interesting where it falls on the schedule for both teams.

Florida - will be putting everything into the UGA game 2 weeks prior, and then have to play Mizzou at home the following wee...a team which nobody knows what they'll look like at that point. Then the Gamecocks roll into the Swamp to wrap up the SEC schedule.

Carolina - we wrap up the 3 game SEC home stand, and then travel to Ole Miss to play what is expected to be a bad defense...but a pretty good passing game for our secondary to contend with. Then we travel to Gainesville...where we're 2-14 all time (both wins during Spurrier's tenure).

If USC is 6-1 (or even 7-0) in SEC play going into the Florida game...I fully expect Muschamp has the defense playing at a championship level, and that we've got a running game to create some balance on offense.

4-3 or 5-2 going into that final SEC game...then we've got issues on both sides of the ball that are keeping us from contending in the East...we're going to need a miracle to get a W in the Swamp.

GO COCKS!!

I used to back in my high school daze of the early 90's when they were still around $3-4 or so but sometime after I went to USC and started working & having to pay bills, they went & got all ridiculous with their prices.

I still remember when I first saw a Sporting News College Football pre-season mag that had a Gamecock on the cover (not main pic but one of the insets) and was going to buy it but it was $7! Athlon's and others were similarly high. I flipped through it there at the magazine section, skimmed the SEC section, put it down & never even thought to buy one of them again.

The internet has made them obsolete in every way possible anyway - not sure why anyone would buy them.

There is no way we lose to Old Miss or Florida unless we have some serious injury issues. Our more likely losses are Kentucky A&M and obviously Georgia.
