This was a game with all the injuries and lack of execution and effort, where the staff should really not even use as a teaching tool, except for themselves. Let the players just move on from the game, but the staff needs to use it to improve on how to motivate the team better and make games more important to the players and team as a whole...

Deebo didn't get hurt.

That seemed more important to certain "USC fans" than the "meaningless bowl game" that now has everyone's panties in a wad.

NO BRIGHT SPOT...
But we should have a well rested team come Spring seeing as we only used half our Bowl practices.


REALLY Half... Of course we looked well prepared

All I know is this, the bright spot is the social team, football HQ, and in game experience. This is the first time in history Iíve seen a championship level program without the personnel normally you would only see this from a off year team who had won championships in the past. Itís like someone put a ultra nice luxury hotel in Topeka

I was all for Deebo sitting out. I undersrood and have no issues even now with it.

Deebo not being out there didn’t change our poor tackling and lack of effort on defense. Maybe would’ve bailed the offense out somewhat, but the coaches and team should’ve been able to compensate and at least show up. That’s my problem was effort.

Aside from that, if you haven’t listened to kimreys podcast you should. It’s awesome. But something g Ellis Johnson said was that the sec is a players conference and not a coaches. Basically, the talent is so high that you have to have the horses to compete. We don’t. Not on offense. Not on defense. We are what we showed yesterday: a middle to lower tier ACC team. We’re a long way off just on talent.

My bright spot: Denson should be a feature back. Izzy Horn and RJ, if they get better, will be some straight up goons. Shi Smith is fast.

Hats off to RoosterBoy for posting positives that are real on a day when all of us in the Gamecock Nation are pissed. He may have missed the biggest positive that should come out of this game, that is that this staff, this program, will have to endure 8 months with the awful, not just bitter, taste of this performance in their mouths. Everyone should be pushing with their greatest sense of urgency to avoid this happening again.


Being willing to look for positives so soon after that fiasco yesterday is an example of the never-ending Gamecock optimism. I do know several 20+ year season ticket holders that are considering (claiming, but let's see if time heals any) not to purchase next season. These are people that haven't wavered before this season.


I had posted numerous times during the season that we aren't as far away from being good as some think, and I still believe that. RoosterBoy points out some of the reasons I feel this way. It is clear though that while some of the changes needed are personnel, I believe that the bulk is in coaching approaches and practices. This staff needs to mature! If we didn't fully utilize the 15 practices, I would see this as devastating. I was against seeing Deebo on the sidelines since he had chosen not to play...I could go on, but would rather see the positives that others glean from yesterday and save the negatives for another thread.

Agree. He'd be a good spur in EJ's defense though.

My bright spot.....

As we made our way towards the stadium, the Panthers were coming off of their practice field. Security actually blocked fan traffic so that the Panthers could use the sidewalk to walk back to the their locker room. Christian Mccaffery was one of the last folks to walk by and he noticed all the Gamecock fans and paid tribute with a “Go Cocks”. It went down hill from there
