Several sites have us at 7-5 or 8-4. Reddit CFB prediction has us at 11-1 in the SECCG vs. Alabama. Long time to go before the season starts.

I think it's a pretty fair assessment.

Don't know what he means by "no superstars on the defensive side," but I strongly suspect Javon Kinlaw and DJ Wonnum will both have star status by the end of the year. Fenton has a shot if he avoids busts on coverage. Having grown into the position, I think Brunson could edge up toward star status, and BAW may be noteworthy as well. I expect Kier Thomas to add to the sack total, as well as filling showing his ability to get tackles for loss.

I think we are going to be pretty stingy defensively if some depth starts to develop. Our starting 11 should be able to go against anyone.

As long as the offense doesn't hang them out to dry. Up tempo is great when it works but will wear out a defense when it doesn't.

Fair assessment. The general consensus with most outlets is that we'll be the clear #2 team in the East and will be much improved.

Personally, I think the offense will surprise a lot of people this year with BMac. We won't be at the top of the SEC, but they will produce enough to win games that we would have lost last year. Defense has a handful of players, but this is Will Muschamp so I'm not worried about that.

Win/loss record wise, I'll go with 9-3. Lose to Georgia, Clemson and Ole Miss or Florida. Good enough to ring in the new year in Florida.

Fair. I think we are a hard team to gauge to say the least. Last year we could have won 10 or 11 games. We also had a chance to lose a couple more than we did.

I think this year we find a way to win 9 or 10 in the regular season and maybe are fortunate to slide into Atlanta. Either way I see a successful year 3 of the Muschamp era. I also expect some schools and or the NFL to come calling for him.

I'll be happy with 10 wins and a victory over UGA and/or the taters. I still don't think we have the depth, though to compete for the SEC.

Beat UGA and have 10 wins and we're competing for the SEC. If we win week 2 we'll be in the thick of it.

Default Re: Preview 2018: South Carolina Gamecocks. It's Not Pretty, But ...

Pretty positive write-up and I agree with most of it. IMO, Kinlaw and Bailey should have made the Top Five on Defense and Offense, respectively.

Kinlaw is a returning starter who was a revelation in his first year, so putting back-up Keir Thomas on the list at Kinlaw's expense is a little iffy.

And Daley was really good in his first year, but I still think Bailey is our best O Lineman.

But then, I may have a little Lowcountry bias when it comes to Bailey and Kinlaw....

Yes, as long as we don't stumble against UT, UF or UK.

Happened twice under Spurrier.

I don't think Carolina has a shot against Georgia. Fromm looks a NFL signal caller. They will be a bear the next two years. With that being said, we should be the second best team in the East. I wouldn't be disappointed with a 8-4 record. I think by 2019 or 2020 they could reach the 10-11 win mark.

With this new configuration on the offensive line I am looking forward to watching them play. I understand why we did it, but I always felt like Bailey should be at guard rather than tackle. I am not as certain about Stanley at center but we gotta trust the coaches.

Turner may be lighter, but he hits the defense much harder than Williams has so far.
He also says that that this is a no-name defense. I don't agree at all. By this point, all teams know about TJ Brunson, Kier Thomas, Rashad Fenton and DJ Wonnum. And they are quickly learning about Javon Kinlaw, Steven Montac, Jamyest Williams and Aaron Sterling.
All in all, he was very fair, and said true things. He predicted that our offense would average ten more points a game this year. And if this happens, we will be highly ranked. Where I pretty much disagree bigtime with him, is in his defensive outlook. He never took into account incomers like Rick Sandidge, JC Horne, Rosendo Louis or Enagbare. And the biggest thing of all he left out in his calculated defensive outlook is in the pic below, and that says it ALL>

Sorry but in my opinion Bentley as a junior is atleast eaual to Fromm. He did look good last year with two high level senior RBs to help the offense and still not discounting his ability , but we donít have a shot because they have Fromm ?

X2, Fromm is more of a Phil Petty game manager type. He will develop as a passer and made some clutch throws, but mostly he handed the ball off to Chubb and Michel while protecting the ball.

And UGA had one of the most veteran Ds in the country with a lot of high draft picks - it will be a little different in 2018 because Fromm will have to do a lot more for them to have a big year.

Eason is seen as a bust, but I think he might still be the better pro - more of a classic pro-style dropback passer with size and a strong arm.
