Default Anything less than a BCS game, a disappointment?

With the schedule and the play-makers we have, would anything less than a BCS game be considered a disappointing year?

Your opinion....

Yes.

But you could ask this question every year, and I'd say the same.

Default Re: Anything less than a BCS game, a disappointment?

I would say for me there would be one exception to where no BCS bowl would not be a disappointment. If we make it to Atl and lose to the West champion, its more than likely that we won't get a BCS bowl. I would accept that and feel as though the season may have ended disappointing, but the season wasn't.

I don't know. It's tougher being in the SEC. We could lose 1 game and not go to the SEC CG or end up in a BCS bowl. It wouldn't be a disappointment if we only lost 1 game and didn't go BCS. It gets much hazier if we lose 2 games.

Considering the schedule, if we put another crooked record up there I will be more than happy.

I think Connor Mitch will lead us to the NC game, I really do.

Yes, but what I nice disappointment. Wasn't that long ago we would be posting, "If we don't go to a bowl game and beat clemsux we will be disappointed"? Anyway, SEC East and then SEC Championship.....that is our focus. What a positive outlook for our season over the last 4 years. Awesome!

Default Re: Anything less than a BCS game, a disappointment?

So another 11-2 season, with a bowl win over a Major national power
and a top 10 ranking would be a disappointment ?!?!?!

I knew this would happen to a portion of our fanbase. I'm also going to
guess by the thread subject, the OP is in his late teens / early 20s.

Having gone through a lot of the fire, and having been a part of a string
of below .500 seasons, and considering 7 wins as a major accomplishment,
I knew when we won the Eastern Conf. Then had back to back 11 win
seasons, that some of our fans would start to consider 10 wins, or not
moving beyond 11 to be disappointing. ........ Hear this guys and girls.
No matter how good we get (this year or afterwards) No matter how
much we accomplish (this season or going forward) we will eventually
have a season (or maybe a few seasons) of below 8/9 win seasons
again. It's happened to Florida, it's happened to Alabama, it's happened
to Notre Dame, it happens to all teams who have tasted success at some
point in their history.

Yes we have a favorable schedule (ON PAPER). How many of us (myself
included) said last year at this time we were going to come out of the
gate hot against Vandy because of ... well, they were Vandy ?
No one knows from one season to the next how good or bad teams are
going to be, and a schedule being "favorable" is only declared that by
what our opponents did Last Season ....... Hear this as well. When we
talk about our improving and we make all these statements as to why
we are improving..... What do you think our opponents are doing and
talking about.... standing still or moving backwards ??

We have an opportunity to do something special again this season,
HOWEVER, we were in that same position last year and couldn't get a
big win to seal a conf Championship when it was there for the taking.
In fact, it's been that way for a string of years with this team. We'll
only improve when we have it there in our grasp and we take it.

As for the question in the OP.... All I want to see is for this team to
continue to compete with the best in this conference, and improve as
a whole from season to season. If you continue to do that, and continue
to win 9 /10 /11 games a year (and hopefully more) then eventually
you will break through and grab the brass ring.... maybe it will be this
year, maybe next, maybe 2015... But as long as we are in contention
going into the final week or two of the season, that will mean that we
are going to have yet another good solid season.

NO, I wouldn't be disapointed if we don't go to a BCS bowl again this
year, as long as we are fighting for a chance to play in the SEC Championship
game going into the final SEC game of the year. Hope we do go to a
BCS Bowl AND WIN IT, Hope We get a Chance to Play in Pasadena this
winter, but I won't cry about it if we don't as long as we continue to
improve, and move toward that goal this year or in the near future.

As disheartening as that was (and I was there with you bruh), I sat
through and CLEARLY remember the Richard Bell Year. As bad as the
0-11 season was, and the 1-10 season prior to that, there was actually
some decent football played by those teams in all those losses.
The 1982 Richard Bell era of Football was THE MOST GOD AWEFUL
SEASON EVER !! ... We lost to Duke, AND FURMAN in the same season !!!
AND had to come from behind late in the fourth quarter to beat a 2 win Navy team.
Bill Bradshaw was afraid to throw a pass downfield more than 10 yards
because anything further than that usually got picked and run back the
opposite direction.

NO, I would not be disappointed if we don't go to a BCS Bowl game
as long as we don't completely fall apart in the process.

as an aside to that story..i was at Columbia high during that time and my junior year we hired an assistant coach off that staff. If Richard was bad, think how bad his staff was. The guy was a total jerk and had some kind of arrogance..

I'd be slightly disappointed but not like, "oh we will never be good. We will always settle for mediocrity."

Sugar or nat champ should be what we want to aim for. Cotton or cap 1 would be a fine alternative.

But first things first.... Beat UNC

Default Re: Anything less than a BCS game, a disappointment?

It definitely depends on how the season goes. It is possible for us to lose 2 or 3 games even and make it to a BCS bowl. It is also possible for us to win 11 games and not make it to a BCS bowl.

I wouldn't base our season on if we made it to a BCS bowl. Obviously I would be disappointed if we didn't make one, but if we finish the (regular) season 11-1 and finding ourselves in a non-BCS bowl I'm not disappointed in our team, rather the bowl committees.

Lets say we miss out on a BCS bowl...

I'd personally like to go to the Cotton over the Cap 1 or Outback, since we've been to both of those. We've never been to Cotton in history and it'd be a cool experience for the players to play in Jerry's World. However, it's unlikely since they have teams like LSU and A&M who are much closer

I would be disappointed not to go to a BCS bowl since this may be our best shot schedule wise. But not disappointed in the season if we won 11 and lost in the title game.
