Default CFN Preview 2017: SEC Rankings

http://collegefootballnews.com/2017/...s-preview-2017

Well horse feathers!

11. South Carolina

It’s still going to take a while for Will Muschamp to create an SEC East powerhouse, if he’s actually able to do it, but he’s got the type of team in place that could grind out just enough wins to be pesky. Muschamp has the great linebacking corps, but he doesn’t have the line. He’s got the quarterback in Jake Bentley, but he doesn’t have quite enough star power. It might not be a pretty team, but it’ll be effective.

#11? Poop! That puts us at 2nd to last place in the SEC. These so called "Experts" are going to be quite stunned at what they see from Carolina football this year. #SpursUp! Go Cocks!

Yeah, keep thinking that. We probably have one of the best trio's (WR,TE and RB) in the SEC. But no one one wants to admit it.

I'd rather start at #11 and go up than at #5 and go down.

Default Re: CFN Preview 2017: SEC Rankings

That's such a lazy take, especially saying we don't have enough "star power" on offense. Our WR corps should be one of the best in the SEC this year, not to mention we have arguably the best TE in the league plus the addition of Ty'Son with Dowdle in the backfield. We may not be great this season, but lack of "star power" will not be the main problem if we aren't. I swear, so many of these people do no research whatsoever.

I'm by no means expecting us to come out and have a stellar season or anything, but Bentley has plenty of help on offense. For me, it all comes down to whether or not we get help from the offensive line.

We can have the QB, RB, WR, TE, LB, DB and special teams all figured out but if the line of scrimmage is not shored up, it is going to be a struggle at times. It all comes down to LOS and ball security.

I think we're a few spots better than #11 but that's for Muschamp & Co. to go out and prove.

Until we can get a winning record, no one is gonna think we'll be any good. That's why they play the game. We were "supposed to be" 4-8 last year.

Who'd we kick out of the conference? Last count there were 14 teams. I think we'll finish higher than 11th, but even that leaves 3 teams below us, not one.

The two quick takes that I really enjoyed were Mizzou and UT.

Mizzou is going to be better because......the D can't be that bad two years in a row? Really? Why not? Shouldn't there be an actual analysis? Like why it will be better, what great players are developing into stars?

And UT...they note that the D was squishy soft against the run, which ain't good in the SEC....their star pass rusher is gone, so that part of the D don't look good...and they concede that UT is starting over at the skill positions... and they are #6????? Whuuuttt??? Did Butch Jones suddenly change from being a coach that underachieves with his talent to one that overachieves?

I guess, but to be completely oblivious to our "star" power on offense, is kind of poor writing skills by this reporter.

I won't argue USC not being listed as finishing first in the SEC based on last season but regardless of circumstances a successful Gamecock football team just isn't palatable to these many of these writers. Not sure why.

Probably because we lose to Kentucky every year.

Also, we lost to the Citadel at home two years ago.

Perhaps but they still treated us the same when were a winning team. A winning Gamecock team is a fly in the SEC elite's ointment.

I see plenty of potential. I trust Wolfy, too. I think we'll be pretty good on offense. I'm worried about line talent, and scheme.

But I keep seeing "best USC offense ever" bandied about. I'd love it, but I see no reason to make such a claim, even based on potential. We've had some excellent offenses at USC and last year's offense was not very good against quality defenses.

If it does, Muschamp won't need to buy a butt-kicking machine because his leg will likely start the motion on its own by mid-season. He won't likely neglect any stakeholder except the fans - and will probably include himself. He's motivated.
