Default Why can't we never keep our foot on the gas?

Seems even since Spurrier has been here we can never just make it an easy win. We get up on a team and just seem to let them come back. We get lazy and just think we have the game in the books(See today and last game against Vandy). It doesn't matter who we play, im always nervous for our games because we always play down to our competition. It really just tears my nerves up. If you want to be elite you can't do this.

Why do yall think we seem to do this? Is it coaching or just the character of the players?

Team is young... give it time. Things will improve. You also have to understand that Shaw was hurt early in this game. Dylan came in, and sure he was nervous. It is two different things being thrown into a game knowing Shaw will come back in, and then knowing he will not.

Not sure why he would have been nervous. He has been in much bigger games than this. This is the kinda game he should have been coming in early in the 2nd quarter to throw a TD pass for us to go up by 3 scores. I think the whole "upset alert" must have gone the other way

Play calling, poor execution, and penalties from lack of mental toughness.

The players think they have arrived. After the UGA game, Quarles said something along the lines of: "We expected to show up and for UGA to hand us the game".

Not a great mentality at all. Why I said Clowney needs to step up his leadership on this defense. He needs to be vocal.

Default Re: Why can't we never keep our foot on the gas?

A topic that begins with a double negative can't be too good. Anyway.....the score should have been 35-10 but our defensive backs and linebackers are just playing way too soft! I am really surprised at how "soft" our D has become since it was usually our strong point in years past. Hope that we can get things fixed soon. GO COCKS!!!

yes, go to gamecocksonline and watch the video of Quarles on 9/10/2013. He says, "We thought we was gonna walk into Georgia and they was gonna hand us something."

I'll answer that double negative question, Spurrier made a statement he would be the winingest coach in South Carolina history..he's got that and doesn't want to run the risk of calling a play that might not work...If it was Fla..he would have gone for the throat..here it's protecting the lead and hope we get out alive.....and wanting to pad his win and I do mean his win column...

I don't know no reason why we ain't got no idea to keep playing aggressively. The play caller don't never do what's right once we get up comfortably on an opponent. And the negative Nancy's don't know no reason why we never don't say no not to avoid going back up and not never stopping the good play.

Oh hush! It's not like you have any right to say anything since you're not an alumnus. And don't even think about raising a toast to the health of the University of South Carolina you outsider!

The grammar issue isn't nearly as disturbing as your sig. I hope you change your underwear more often than you change your sig. FWIW, I'm just messing with you, so don't get too upset.
