Default Early Bowl Projections

I know it's only May, but I still found this...

If we do end up in the CFA, that would be extremely disappointing. Nothing bad against the Chick Fil A, it's a great bowl to go to, but with the talent we have this year, and all the momentum going on right now, it would be rather disappointing.

Default Re: Early Bowl Projections

Still early, and like the OP said, no knock on the CFA bowl, but I think that would be disappointing. The only way it maybe wouldn't be is if we went 11-1, lost in the SECCG and the Sugar Bowl took an 11-1 A&M team who did not play in the SECCG. I would think we wouldn't fall further than the Capital One Bowl if that was the case, however.

That's hypothetical, of course. I'm obviously REALLY hoping for at least a BCS bowl this year. Any other year I wouldn't mind the CFA bowl.

With what we have, I don't expect anything less than Cotton or Capital One.

Hoping for Sugar. REALLY hoping for the Nat Champ, however, the brain is telling the heart no.

It's stupid to put something out like this. As we have just seen with Golson at ND, good players can still be kicked off the team.

Default Re: Early Bowl Projections

I'd stop short of calling anything less than a BCS bowl a disappointment, particularly in this conference, but like I said in a previous post, it depends on what kind of CFA bowl year we have. I definitely think a 9-3 type of year and the CFA bowl will be a disappointment.

That prediction is predicated on us losing to both Georgia and Florida. Wont happen. As was noted by others it is incredibly stupid to blow something like this out your ass before the advent of even summer camp.

The only way I could maybe see us in the CFA if we are put in LSU's position last year. There were like 4 or 5 10-2 teams in the SEC. Someone had to get the short end of the stick and go to CFA.

I just bought the Athlon CFB magazine which ranks us 5th in the nation yet predicts us to go to the CFA bowl and finish second in the East to UGA. I believe Clowney and company thinks otherwise.

BCS bowl or bust in my opinion. Hopefully we can put together something like Arkansas did a few years back playing Ohio State in the sugar bowl. Better yet a chance to play in the national title. It feels kind of odd saying that, but to know we were literally 1 game away the last 2 years kind of puts things in better perspective. We were also a game or two from having 3 or 4 losses too though but that's how it goes. Good teams win the close ones.

My how times have changed. I remember when just getting to a bowl was our goal.

But I have to admit, I think this year we win the East at least.

I have to agree. Times have changed thanks to Coach Spurrier. He has put South Carolina football on the map.

I used to HATE being in the SEC, getting beat by every other team in our conference praying we win 6 to 7 games and become bowl eligible.

Now if we don't win at least 9 games, the season is considered garbage.

We win big this year. We win the East and go to the SECCG. The rest is a crapshoot.

for the last god only knows how long...this is what the early bowl predictions read:

"UGA and FL will probably finish ahead of SC, hence an invite to the Outback or ChicFila for SC." This is standard stuff from the media. There is nothing to base this on other than history. These are worthless predictions.
