Default Unprecedented 4 year run discussion

For some of us long time Gamecock fans, we are in the golden era of Gamecock football. This thread is dedicated to documenting many of the positive events that have occurred since the start of the 2010 season. If you want to complain, vent, whine, or post your couldas/shouldas, please go elsewhere.
Let’s keep this positive and have some fun celebrating the greatest era in Gamecock football!

My list:
- As of 11/3/13, our guys have been in the Top 25 for 58 consecutive voting weeks. That is 5th among all programs. That at least makes our Gamecocks a Top 10 and maybe Top 5 program for the past 4 seasons.

- 38-11 overall

- Won 77.5% of all games including multiple wins v. ranked opponents

- 21-10 in the SEC

- 15 home games win streak as of 11/3/13

- Two thousand yard rushers two out of four seasons

- Won the SEC-E and actually played in an SECCG. That was a fantasy at one time.

- More big plays on offense and defense than anyone can keep track of. This may be the most unprecedented item of them all. I would imaging we could put together a list of 100 in short order. This may deserve its own thread.

It is.

Connor Shaw passed for four touchdowns, Mike Davis moved past 1,000 yards this season and the 14th-ranked Gamecocks got five turnovers to defeat the Bulldogs 34-16 for their school-record tying 15th straight home victory Saturday.

Getting national media attention week in and week out.

The reason everyone listened to Bob Fulton as much as they did is because A) he was awesome and B) we were never on TV.

Default Re: Unprecedented 4 year run discussion

I've been telling my wife's father that for the last 4 years. We have the most talent on those teams than we've ever had, but this is him during each game we watch together.

"I know, but......"
"Just wait, it's only the third quarter"
"You know that Wofford team is really good"

I just laugh at him and tell him to hold on because it's getting better each year.

He's really a super nice guy, but one of those long, long, Gamecock fans that remembers the past far too often.

I think the last 4 years has been really good, but I still think our better teams are in front of us.

I read we have 31 players on NFL rosters. The most in school history. Of course, that includes Lattimore who is on the injured list.

Once you get to a certain age, or have followed this team for a certain amount of time, you want to see Championships.

We have had the talent over these last four years, but the results are bittersweet. No other way to say it. The wins have been great. Our record against Clemson is fantastic. We are beating jawja most of the time now. BUT, we continue to play down to the competition at crucial times in the season each and every year and blow our chances at returning to Atlanta or playing in the Sugar. We could still realize these goals this year, but the game at Tennessee was another let down...

We need a SEC Championship or a BCS win. The sooner the better. We don't live forever.

Also only 6 programs have been ranked in each of the last 27 BCS rankings. Bama, Oregon, LSU, Oklahoma, Stanford and South Carolina.

Not Georgia, Not Florida and certainly not clemson.

Great thread. I love to pour over statistics, and can go rattle off lists of them on memory, so I knew most of this. However one I didn't know that made my jaw drop when an announcer mentioned it in the Mississippi State game was that South Carolina has won 31 of the last 34 home games. I went and checked it, and sure enough starting with a win against Tennessee in 2008 to present, South Carolina has won 31 of their last 34 home games. That is outstanding!

I realize that part of that starts before 2010, but since 2010 there is a 23-2 home record that includes a 15 game home winning streak that is the second longest in the nation. Again, that is outstanding! A mark of a very good program is having a strong home field advantage.

It has been great!! As a long time Gamecock, Brave and Falcon fan, I have certainly lived through some really lean years. I have lived to see all 3 do pretty well and I never thought that would be the case. It makes all the success that much better and rewarding!!! GO COCKS!!! GO BRAVES!!! GO FALCONS(guess I'll have to wait another year on that one)!!!
