Default WTH is wrong with some of y'all?

I'm seeing so many posts doubting our ability to win, and win convincingly this weekend.
This is not the 'old' Carolina. Believe me. I have lived most of my life under the shadow of the 'old' Carolina. This team is not that.
The bottom line is that we are a better football team than UGA. Period. We don't need to worry about what they can do as much as we need to worry about what we can and should be able to do.
If this team shows up ready to play at the level we're capable of playing, the outcome of this game shouldn't be in question. We have better players, better coaches. End of discussion.

We have had the players and coaches the last 2 years, but our away offense last season was very average, and maybe below average in some eyes. I think the game being away is why people may question our chances to leave Sanford Stadium with a W.

Believe me,

Alot of us have been here along time. We've sat here and watched teams rise up and then crumble in late games. Watched Carolina start great and end horrible. Everyone in here believes, but always respect a team when their back is against the wall. Never let it get to deep over your head.

What's wrong with me?! I'll tell you what's wrong with me!

A little bit of reflux, and some high blood pressure. But otherwise, I'm good.

I'm optimistic (which is cause for concern because I'm usually pessimistic), but UGA will give us their very best. I can almost guarantee you that. We will have to fight for this win. We'll also have to play better on both sides of the ball (which I believe we will). I will say that I am confident about Clowney having a big game. His name has been drug through the mud for close to a week now. Colin Cowherd called him the #1 phony in college football today. I'd say JD7 will bring his best Saturday, too. Cocks in a close one.

What's wrong with me?! I have hypochondriac pregnant wife with gestational diabetes that likes to embarrass the hell out of you in restaurants... Thinks she's dying all the time, nags the crap out of me, wont stay off facebook, and thinks I take gamecock football to seriously. That's what the hell is wrong with me!!!

Yes, I have seen Bama and LSU play. We need our offense to score. We didn't win with defense vs UF or LSU last season, because our road offense could not score enough, and in UFs game our offense didnt even show up, captain.

It's not that I don't think we CAN'T win, I just don't see us winning 42-17 or 35-10 like some have said. Trust me, no one would love to see this happen more than I would, and if I'm wrong about it I'll gladly come back here Saturday night and eat crow.

I have confidence we can win, I just don't see a blowout.

what about the other 11 games? you just want to forget about those?

and how many times did lsu give up 21 points last year?

22 to towson, 21 to SC, 21 to Alabama, 25 to Clemson and 31 to ole miss.

3 of those teams were in the top 5 in offense in the sec while one led the ACC. its worth mentioning they held A&M to 19 on the road.

having said that, our offense is more than capabale and will do their part. florida was an off week. we scored 35 the next 2 weeks and put 27 on Clemson and 33 on Michigan.

our offense is very capable of pulling its weight. room for improvement? absolutely.

a weakness? absolutely not.

What does LSU have to do with this? We won 11 games which is great, but our 2 away SEC losses is what kept us out of the SEC championship. Other than the Clemson game last season our road offense was very average, and lifeless vs UF. Michigan was a neutral site. I think our road offense is capable, but they need to perform better on the road this season if they want to make it to the SEC championship, especially with 3 SEC away games in a row in the month of OCT.

Unfortunately, as I've said before, the old Carolina mentality is still alive and well among many of the fanbase. They just can't help themselves!

you brought up LSU and florida.

you can be negative about the offense all you want and focus on the 2 losses instead of the 11 wins if you want. That's crazy. You'll be first in line to brag about the offense when they have a good game Saturday though I'm sure.

Go ask Clemson how they could have such a "lifeless" offense against south Carolina at home, then go put up 400 plus on lsu and beat them.

we aren't going to score 35 points every week and if that's what you want you better go pull for Oregon or somebody that plays nobody with a decent defense.
