Default Help...I'm Nervous about this game

I have been looking forward to this season. I am ready to see Connor/Thompson lead our offense, to see our corp of recievers burn defensive backfields, to see our DL destory the opposing Offensive coordinator's best laid plans, for the country to see how much talent the young LB's have.

But in spite of all of this, I can't shake this nervous feeling. Somebody please help me. Talk some sense into me. I know we are the superior team and don't for one second doubt we will win, but I can't shake this feeling.


Please somebody, help me!

Thx Spurt, needed that man, I think I feel unprepared as a fan because I only had three practice reports so I feel like I don't know what to expect out of our new guys. In any case, Go Cocks, let stomp a TarHole in the Heels!!!!

It's that old Gamecock uneasiness rearing its ugly head. We have been disappointed so many times over the years. We've had our expectations get so high only to be crushed in the final seconds. But that was then and this is now. The Gamecocks are a different team. We win. It's what we do. Instead of folding in a clutch, we come through. It's a different era for Carolina. Don't be nervous, be excited!!!! We've earned the confidence of a winning team!

I trust Spurrier. I can't wait to hear him say things like

"Just as you stand up for sandstorm, stand up for Carolina. Stand up Carolina."
"For those fans that don't know me, I'm Steve Spurrier. Our goal is to make Williams Brice Stadium the most hospitable and most intimidating place in the country"
"It's time for Carolina Football"

Just ask yourself this: Would Clemson beat UNC?

Then what are you worried about?

Clemson beat LSU, so anything is possible. We have a better team, but fumbles and blown coverages happen. I won't rest easy until the game is over.

I guess I am one of those nervous as well. I feel pretty confident about the outcome, but I know that we typically start out slow on our 1st game of the season. I think this game will be close until late 3rd quarter or so.

Default Re: Help...I'm Nervous about this game

The only reason to be nervous about this game is that it's the first game of the year. Strange stuff happens because teams are getting stuff worked out. Sometimes and inferior team may win because first games of the season do that. ESPN even had an article on this about the effect of the first game of the season.

http://espn.go.com/college-football/...o-excited-care

We are the better team. We should win. I think it's OK to be nervous. I think the players will be a little nervous as well. Keeps you grounded. Get the nerves out early by hitting someone and getting into the flow of the game. Limit mistakes, stay focused, and the better team will win.
