Default Reasons SC will win or lose

I think the gamecocks win for one simple reason. This will be the one and only loud, hostile road game against a good opponent for Clemson this year.

Best Way for USC to win is the same way last year...Keep Clemson's offense off t he field like they did in the third qtr....If Carolina let's our offense continue to have drives and take our shots we will get you.....

South Carolina's secondary needs to keep their head on a swivel because Clempsun will test them with the deep ball.

If we let Clemson play comfortable offensively then yeah I don't like our chances. But then again don't sleep on our offense. We have a lot of different ways to beat teams

GET IN BOYDS HEAD AND PRESSURE HIM

It's been proven that when we do that, he doesn't play as well and isn't as much as a threat.

Also it's important that we start hot. Can't be making stupid mistakes in the first half, and give them opportunities to score.

Default Re: Reasons SC will win or lose

I agree with the Clemson fan. (I know, holy crap, right?!)

We have to run the ball and convert third downs. We held the ball for 2/3 of the game last year, and we all saw the results. I sometimes think TOP is an overrated stat in football, but it was a huge difference in the game last year.

Defensively, win first down. Get Clemson into long second and third downs and make them as predictable as they can be.

I like our advantage in the trenches. With our OL, Davis/Wilds/Carson, and Shaw's ability to run, we should be able to control the clock on offense. I also like the fact that their secondary is weak again, and we have 2 QBs that can quickly expose them if needed.

If Tajh has time it might get bad..

I know this is not rocket science, but on offense we need good/healthy Shaw tomorrow; on defense; we need good/healthy Clowney. We get those two things, and we keep our winning streak against them going.

Just got off the phone with a good friend who happens to be on the Football Staff at USC and I asked him how practice went this week and if the Cocks were ready. He told me that this was clearly the best week of practice they have had all year and that the " Boys " as he always says were ready.

Default Re: Reasons SC will win or lose

On defense: We have to play physical, fundamentally sound defense. By that, I mean we cannot get fooled by the Clemson window dressing. We also cannot allow them to simply put a hat on a hat and open up big holes for QB draws and HB runs, or get their players in space on jet sweeps. We need to shed blocks and take good angles on run plays. WE NEED TO TACKLE THE RUNNER. We really need to do these things to stop the run game. If we can shut down the run and keep them in passing situations, I like our chances much more. If we cannot do these things, then I believe Clemson will be able to get our defense on their heels and the Clemson offense will start rolling, hitting those talented WR's downfield. I don't like the way our defense played in the first half versus Florida at all, especially because I feel like the offense that Florida was running is similar to Clemson's ground game. A lot of misdirection, sweeps, QB runs, etc... and that defensive performance was versus a team with ZERO passing threat... a far cry from Clemson's offense. This scares me.

On offense: Spurrier needs to remain balanced, if not run heavy. Like others have said, we have to hold onto the ball, sustain long drives, and grind this thing out. This is why, in another thread, I stated that I wouldn't mind seeing Wilds start this one. If both Wilds and Davis are 100%, I would actually like to see about a 50/50 split. I believe that the skillset of Wilds can be very beneficial to us in this game. Davis is a great back, but he is more of a big play guy. I don't like the idea of trading a bunch of big plays with these guys and ending up in a shootout. That being said, I think a 50/50 split would be enough of "thunder and lightning" to wear the Clemson defense down and get them on their heels. Spurrier can NOT get pass happy IMO. This is my biggest fear and my biggest complaint with Spurrier's coaching style.

Godspeed, Gamecocks.

I personally don't see where anything has changed over the last 2 years in regards to this match up. I just don't see where Clemson matches up well with USC and I expect Carolina to win by 10 to 14 points.

Great to hear that Chris Low will be "in the house" to cover the game.

This rivalry will always hold a special place in my heart, which is why I’m so stoked to be going back Saturday and covering my first Clemson-South Carolina game in nearly two decades.

And talk about good timing.

It’s the first time in the history of the rivalry that both teams have been ranked in the top 10 nationally. There are BCS bowl implications for both teams, and South Carolina is trying to win five in a row in the series for the first time ever.

Back in the day, I’m not sure I ever envisioned a game between these two old rivals being this big nationally.

Our DL will determine if we win this game. If we can consistently apply pressure, I like our chances. If no one steps up while Clowney is being doubled and tripled, we're in for a long night.

Our DL is worse, our LB's are smaller and softer, and our safeties are worse.

Our OL is better.

Clemson's defense is better.

Those are the differences that I note.

LBs Softer? They are def smaller but have been playing very good over the 2nd half of season. http://www.secdigitalnetwork.com/Por...l/confldrs.htm

I think you are severely underestimating our defense
