Default This Year Or Never

I'm not gonna mention the message board where I just read this silly post. But a guy on there posted that he felt like if we didn't win the SEC this year, we would probably never win it. What!!! Spurrier has us rolling and built for the long haul, just look at our recruiting for this class and especially next years. The sad thing is that a couple people agreed with him. I tell ya, if I felt that way about my team, I would find someone else to pull for.

We have 4 seniors this year. Count that, 4. Even if we lose Clowney and Hampton to the draft, that still almost our entire 2 deep roster. Those guys will come in 2014 with a lot of experience and DT should be the QB 100% of the time.

I think we should be a top 10 contender for awhile

I agree, I don't see this team dropping off anytime soon.

I think the ability of 2 new DE to step up will be key to our probability of success next year. On the other hand, I think some of that pressure will be taken off by our extremely talented LB corps having a solid year of experience under their belts. Anywho, I'm just too excited about THIS year to worry about it too much.

We'll lose a few Juniors this year as well, especially if we have a great season.

Never is a long time, but it seems like this year is our best chance ever. It's certainly not going to get any easier, especially when Spurrier finally hangs it up. That can't be too far away now.

Why does everyone think we'll struggle when Spurrier retires? This is now an attractive job, and I have no doubt we should be able to find a quality coach. Come on people! I just don't understand our fans! So pessimistic about everything!

I disagree that of we don't win it this year that we never will. That said, I believe this is our year to take it. The only thing that's kept us out has been ONE game that we lose to keep us out in past years... Our schedule is not as hard as years past and it is ours for the takin.

Right now I suspect that Connor's performance Saturday has made day dreams about skydiving a tad less frequent. Hopefully hearing HBC's post scrimmage comments has his brain turning the motivation jets to full throttle knowing that staff feels like most here, that another Florida type performance cannot occur, that this team will play its best and should.

But I agree wholeheartedly with this thread, that we are the new Carolina and resemble nothing of our past. What I've always found amazing is how Georgia fans seem to want to fire their coach each time they start the season with a couple of losses and, by year's end, not so much. Go Cocks!

Every year is a struggle in the SEC. Even if the job is attractive but so is every other SEC job. Whoever replaces him is not likely to be as good as Spurrier. We need to win a championship if what SOS has done here is going to stick for a long time. I doubt we would just drop off the face of the earth and not be competitive right after he leaves, but the question is "will we ever win a Championship if not this year? And what about after Spurrier?" Who knows? Spurrier's rep is our main draw right now. I'm not saying "never" but it is certainly going to be rough if he leaves without a championship legacy draw recruits here.

Why? Think of it this way. If you could replace Spurrier today with any other coach out there is there one you can think of you'd rather have running our program?

I know the only coach I can think of that I wouldn't consider a big step down would be Saban and he isn't budging from Bama. Yes we can find a quality coach, but Spurrier isn't quality. He's an elite coach.

Remember the word in the coaching community when Spurrier took the job was "You can't win it all at SC". Should we get another few years down the road without an SEC title at least then the word will be back with a vengeance. Even Spurrier couldn't do it.

A pessimist is what an optimist calls a realist. I don't believe the "This year or never" theory but I do believe "The next 3-4 years or not for a long time"

This team is built for sustainability so I think we will have success for years to come. Spurrier, all the coaches, and the administration have done a phenomenal job turning the football program in the right direction. The biggest thing will be replacing Spurrier when he eventually calls it quits.

Wouldn't say never but this is he best shot we've ever had to win it all. We lose to much after this year but there's no reason we shouldn't continue to challenge for the east. Need some breaks here or there but it can be done.

people have been saying "if not this year, then never" for the past 3-4 years.

the funny thing is, it tends to be the same people saying this. i guess they're too stupid to realize they're hurting their own argument, year after year.
