Default Peaking at the right time

I was just as disappointed as anybody when we lost to Georgia. Not mad, just disappointed. Knowing we had the better team, but they outplayed us that day. so we lost a game. We are now 2-1 with one of our easiest schedule that we have had in years. We have 3 away games in a row that could prove to be difficult, good thing is it is against no top-tier sec teams. We have Florida and Clemson which could be difficult games at the end of the season.

What I am trying to say is that I had a coach one time that focused on peaking at the right time. We have 6 games to improve. If we can 'sneak' into a Florida game at home at 8-1, come out with a win, play Clemson at home at 10-1, we should have things straight on defense, which we all know what our offense is capable of.

Usually I am nervous about our season. I dread games, such as last year when we had to play UGA @LSU @UF in consecutive weeks. This year, we have a breather of a schedule that we really have a chance to put together a special season.

I'm diss appointed that our chances of winning the east has gone down but that doesn't mean our season will be a failure. We have the potential to go 11-1 in the reg season. That's pretty damn good in the sec.

Let's say we win out but don't get to Atlanta, we would end up in the sugar or capital one. That's the top 2 sec bowls. Nothing to be upset with. We've only played 3- lots of football to be played, anything can happen. Especially in the sec

I agree, which is the most disappointing part of losing to Georgia. But we can't undo what has been done.

With that said, Georgia doesn't exactly look like a team that will dominate in all of their games.

LSU, Florida, and even Auburn will give them all they want, as well as I can see them slipping up to a lower tier sec team.

Yes, all we can do is wait and see, but we must also improve every week so that when Georgia does slip, we will be in a good position.

This. Need to win out. The odds are high that Georgia will lose another game, and even fair that they will drop two. But South Carolina needs to win out. Needed is the exact opposite of the situation the last two seasons when Georgia took advantage of a softer schedule to win out after a loss to South Carolina. If Georgia is going to lose two, I believe one of them is going to have to be this weekend. LSU could really help South Carolina this season by giving both Georgia and Florida a loss.

I just want us to play more football and win. It was rough this past week having NO Carolina football to watch.

I don't know about y'all, but watching a game is 100% different when you are emotionally invested into it.

Default Re: Peaking at the right time

I don't think we had the better team against Georgia. They was better them us. It wasn't we had a bad game. The problem is our defense peaked last year and our offense is gonna peak this year. We really need them both at the same time to peak. With that said our defense will be better next year and our offense will be about the same as this year. We are not a bad team at all in my opinion. We are a top 15 team. Just not a top 5 team. Just the reality that we are facing.

Only time will tell. We will have to see how we play Saturday. I'm hoping for more improvement on both sides of the ball.

I actually think for once we may. Last season, we peaked against UGA and picked up steam going into Clemson and the bowl, too. But that UGA game was beautiful.

If we can hit our stride at the right time, we'll be okay.

Even if we don't win the East, if we win out, we could get an at large BCS bid. Still lots to play for!

Where did you come up with that thought? Georgia had the better TEAM, and that's why they won. Since when do better teams lose games? Sure, we may have better TALENT at certain spots, but getting beat doesn't indicate having a better team, sorry.

Default Re: Peaking at the right time

The problem is not that we don't have good players, it's just that the
good talent we have is inexperienced. I said during the fall that I think
Gamecock Nation was going to be shocked at how well our small sized
linebackers played this year, and that they would shock our opponents
as well. ..... I still think we have a good core of LBs, but I underestimated
the inexperience when playing against the better teams on our schedule.
I'm still convinced they will grow up this year and be playing very good
football by the end of the year, but we (the fans) are suffering the growing
pains now. .... I'm holding judgment right now on a couple of coaches. On
the surface, it looks like we have taken a step backwards with a couple of
recent hires, but I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt through
the growing pains to see if THEY grow up as well. Right now, we have what
we have and will have to play through the learning curve. The good news
is that had this been any of the previous 4-5 years schedule, we might
be in some serious trouble, but the schedule this year (though not exactly
easy) is lighter than what we usually play, and is set up for our young
guys to learn and still have some success while trying to achieve our
overall team goals. ... we took a hit in the UGA game, but we're not sunk
yet.

the only chance of this happening would be if Stanford does it again. in that case, you can pretty well bet that Stanford would be undefeated. Also, you have Louisville running around who will be undefeated, most likely.

not trying to bust your bubble, but a one loss SEC team is not going to the BCS championship, unless they win the SEC, or there are no other teams in the country that are undefeated.

A lot of football to be played to make statements like that. Most teams have only played one conference game.
