Default Spurrier/Carolina vs. Arky

Well, this is the last go around with Arky as our permanent cross divisional rival from the West. Carolina's new permanent slot falls to A&M beginning in 2014.

SOS...and USC since joining the SEC, has taken it on the chin from the Hogs over the years.

One loss (2011) eventually kept us out of the SECCG. Another propelled their RB McFadden into the Heisman race (2007). And, oh yes...the '99 beatdown in Little Rock were we had like 180 total yards...unfortunately that was the norm during that year.

However, last year's win was a fun game...Swearinger's redemption/pick-6 after the bogus penalty. And the '05 win in Fayetteville kept the SEC win streak going and an outside chance at the East during SOS's first year.

However, this yearly matchup has NOT been good to the Gamecocks. Here are the ugly numbers.

USC all-time vs Arky: 8-13
USC @ Arky (both venues): 2-8
USC (SOS years) vs Arky: 3-5

Every year I say the same thing about this game >> We have to take care of business vs Arky for a chance to beat Florida for the SEC East. Well, the schedule got turned around last year and this season when we face Arky & Florida.

However, Sat is a road SEC game. If we have any chance of getting to Atlanta...our Defense had better put on their big-boy britches, and bring it. Shaw needs to show us he can beat a decent SEC team on the road as well (no costly turnovers, please).

Good riddance, Arky...and here's hoping SOS & Co. wrap up this annual series in style.

GO COCKS!!

To be clear, we lost to Auburn in early October 2011. At that point, both Carolina & UGA had 1 loss in the East...and Carolina had the head to head tiebreaker with UGA.

So when we lost in Fayetteville in early November 2011...that 2nd SEC loss kept us out of Atlanta when UGA won out that year.

GO COCKS!!

Naw, some reason when I use my phone to type on cockytalk, it does that. I can't fix it.

Btw,
If you want to get technical about which loss cost us the east that year, compare Auburn vs Ark that year and where we played each team. Now tell me which game was the biggest screw up & cost us the east. Which game should we have won without a doubt?
