Default Thankfully we lost early! And maybe we needed this

This loss stings bad. It's even ruined my enjoyment of college football analysis for the entire week. I don't want to read about Georgia, hear about Georgia, or think about Georgia. National media folks have declared Clowney's Heisman chances officially dead, they're dissecting our "overrated" defense, and they're piling OFF our bandwagon. Thankfully we lost early!

This can all be overcome quickly with a convincing win against Vandy. We're ranked #13, so the climb back to the top 10, or even top 5, can and should be a short one. If we win out, we're in a BCS bowl, especially considering that winning out means a win against a sure to be top 5 Clemson team.

Spurrier has NEVER had an undefeated team in his days as Div. I head coach, EVER. Alabama has won the MNC with losses. LSU won the MNC with two losses not too long ago. Georgia has also proven that a single loss shouldn't define a season. So let's take a deep breath, take the pain, and move forward. There are still a lot of teams we can whip this season.

And maybe, just maybe, this slap in the face has energized our players and coaches to increase the effort.

This is my view on it. Just might be what we all needed. I think we all could have been getting a little big for our britches.

We are not Bama or LSU.

A win against Vandy will not put us back in the top 10. The polls will say we should beat Vandy. The orange trash went up a spot by beating SC State, but we don't get that kind of love. The loss against UGA and the way we did it is exactly why we can't get any credibility with the pollsters.

Hey 13th is not so bad. This will get us out of the spotlight for a while, we know what we need to fix. Vandy, bye week, UCF, then Kentucky. The press will lay off as we lurk in the shadows and slowly take care of business. We should be a healthy well oiled machine when we hit the meat of our schedule. If the SEC west beats up on each other, a 1 loss team will look pretty good. UGA could lose to LSU, lose the SECCG and be a 3 loss team. Lot of ball left to play!

Who's to say we won't lose again? This isn't exactly the best Gamecock team in recent years. It's much more flawed and doesn't have premier talents/leaders to cover up the holes.

I will be shocked if we are 10-1 hosting Clemson.

I think Georgia loses to LSU for sure. I can also see them losing to Florida.

UF had 6 turnovers, essentially did the same thing v Miami that we did against UF last year. If it wasn't fair to judge us by that one sub-par performance last year, it isn't fair to judge UF in the same manner.

Solid post. I just really want that elusive SEC title.

You misunderstand. A win at Vandy probably won't move us at all, but we are at #13 right now, which means that over the course of the next 3-4 weeks, granted we're winning, we can move back into the top 10. Perhaps if we look strong, and win convincingly against Florida, we'll be sniffing the top 5 again. We know that several teams will be moving around because of their matchups, LSU/UGA, TAMU/BAMA, LSU/BAMA, CLEMSON/FSU, OSU/MICHIGAN, STANFORD/OREGON. The top 10 will certainly change, and we can only move up if we win and look strong doing it. Still it's going to be a grind with this inexperienced defense.

We'll come out focused like UGA did against us... not worried about Vandy at all. In fact, I'd be MORE worried about Vandy had we beaten UGA. Classic trap game, losing to UGA throws that out the window. UGA losing to Clemson was bad for us like us losing to UGA is bad for Vandy.
