Amen buddy, we're past that. Go look up Spurrier's record in games that he is favored in vs unranked teams, it'll make you blush.

Haven't put a prediction in the UCF thread, but have discussed the
game with the mods, and my buds here at work, and I keep making this
point over and over to them. We are the better team in this matchup this
weekend, We're stronger in the trenches, We have better depth, we
have better talent across the board and we have better coaches. This
is one of those games where post 2000 I would be scared to death of
playing. However, we are now an SEC caliber football team, and we have
risen in the past 4-5 years to be one on the top 4-5 teams in this conference.
We will beat UCF Saturday simply because we are the better team. We're
the better program and if we have any hopes of being an Eastern Conf.
Champion, and hopefully more beyond that, this is a game we can not lose.

The media is talking up UCF as if they were an up and coming Miami
program of the early 80s, or "The New Louisville" .... At the same time
they are talking USC Down because we lost to UGA, and we have had
some rough spots in our other two games this year even with the good
numbers we have put up..... THEY (the media) Want this game to be
a potential upset. They want the story that will go along with the
"Goliath that got it's ass kicked against David" ..... Ain't Gonna Happen !
They are building up UCF basically because they beat a potential 6 win
Penn State team in their house, and pushed around Akron and Florida
International. There is not a good defense there if you combined the
best players from all three of those schools, and yet because they won
all three of those games, they are ready to take down one of the 4-5
best teams in the SEC ?!?!?!?

We'll win this game, we'll win it fairly easily and we'll shut up a lot of
people this weekend. .... We are getting ready to right the ship, and
get a lot of frustration off our chest.

41-13 USC

The good news is that since they are all convinced that UCF is a top 25 team we actually will get some respect for winning this albeit only a little. That is still better than none which was the case a few weeks ago.

I see us winning by double digits if our LB's play solid and we control their running back. If he hurts us in the run game and swing passes they will have a great chance to be balanced on offense negating us getting pressure in the backfield. Then we could be in for a scary game.

I am nervous but every-time we get put on upset alert against lower ranked teams the past several years we have overcome. I am optimistic to see more of the same.

I do not see them containing our offense with all the weapons we have as long as WE DON'T TURN IT OVER!

If UCF were in our division they'd be battling Kenturkey for 5th in the east. Im more fearful of catching a cold tomorrow than losing to UCF, honestly.

UCF is pretty good. Though, to the OP all I have to say is AU 2011. That one hurt.

Against a weak Penn State team, Akron and Florida International any

AU 2011? what are you talking about? We faced Alabama in Auburn uniforms IIRC. :D That one hurt, but Auburn wasn't nearly as bad as people made them out to be. 8-5 season isn't a bad team.

I knew this response was coming and I know what you're saying is right and factual. But doesn't fan perception control who we think we're "supposed to beat"?

Our fans were as confident as ever before the UGA game that we were going to wipe the floor with UGA and that this was finally our year to take control of the East. This was the game we were "supposed" to win.

Hell I think before the season, most people who did their research would've agreed (Gamecock and non-Gamecock fans) that USC had a better team coming in to the year. We just didn't get picked to make it to the SECCG because people believe we wouldn't win that crucial game we're 'supposed' to win.

As far as a Vegas standpont you're absolutely correct, but who really cares about that.

I'm not afraid of catching a cold, but I am afraid I might catch a buzz before noon, just hope I can keep it going through our game and the LSU/Georgia game.
