I voted Shaw, 17-3 with a year to go. No disrespect to Phil Petty's two bowl wins over Ohio St. They are both winners.

This is probably the toughest one so far... Out if qb's Connor has took our program to a whole new level so he gets that one. However, Ryan succop was a key part of our success for a couple of years, and I think we'd all agree that we could've used him at many times the past couple of years

Tough call. Shaw has two bowl wins (he gets credit for the W against Michigan right?) and could leave with three. 17-3 as a starter.

Petty had two bowl wins and made some really clutch throws in big time games. Not as statistically impressive, but was part of some big wins.

I went Shaw.

Petty for me. He won some big games and was a part of turning this program around. IMO if he had the talent around him like shaw does today he could have been one of best qb's ever at USC. After this season I hope to change my vote to Shaw.

I went with Succop, he and Mackie were the 2 most solid kickers this program ever saw. If we needed a FG to win a game, I'd want it off Ryan's toe.

I think Succop's brilliance has been demonstrated even more with the lack of consistency we've had at kicker since he's left. I'm for him.

Connor Shaw is going to win this by the time he is done here at Carolina if not by right now. Should he? Probably. But Succop and Petty are definitely some of the better honorable mentions we've had so far.

Voted for Connor Shaw from this pool. ... He's quickly climbing up my
list of all time favorite players of any Gamecock Sport. The guy just
WINS.

Hard to pick against Phil Petty. I really admired him and his ability to run
a "so so" offense as well as he did. Solid field general.

ALSO

I didn't see the original list of player to wear the individual numbers, or
I would have added Max Runager to the list of Gamecock players to wear
#14. .... IMO, Max WAS the #1 player wearing #14 until Connor joined the
program, and is doing his thing now.

I got to go with Petty because he is one of those players who laid the groundwork for where we are now, but his numbers aren't flashy.

I like(d) Petty but I have to go with Shaw. Petty was an excellent game manager, but he wasnt asked to do much. Shaw can pretty much do it all.

Really though, I cannot see why anyone would pick him over Connor Shaw. This is more or less a favoritism game and not a fan looking at the facts. Connor Shaw beats Petty in stats, wins, and efficiency. This should be a no brainer, but for some reason people are picking him over Shaw. Not sure why to be honest.

Connor....but don't forget Ryan Succop was one of our best punters ever and boomed his KOs.
I loved Phil Petty...but not in Connor's class.

Needs to be updated after Jan '14.
