Default Why I Love My Gamecocks/Open Letter to Connor

Great Win last night guys. I have never been more proud to wear the Garnet and Black, to the Seniors and guys leaving early, you guys have taken USC to the next level. Were now Contenders year in and year out. You guys have fought through adversity, weathered the storms, and taken this program to consistently winning 10 games.

Also something like 5 in a row now against that other team hell, i'm loosing count.

And most importantly, I'm about to open an industrial sized can of man love on Connor Shaw. He is without a doubt the most underrated guy to ever step on our field but, all he does is win. 17-0 at home as a Starter. He is truly a player of the game and understands what being "smart" with the football is all about. Something that we havent really had around here in a long time. I hope that his leadership and influence wears off on Dylan Thompson/Brendan Nosovitch/Connor Mitch. I hope these guys were paying attention and learning from him. No Connor didn't go out and put up Xbox numbers every game but, on 3RD and 10, he kept the chains moving. As far as im concerned, ill take 10 Connor Shaws over 10 Tajh Boyds/Aaron Murrays/and Johnny Footballs you name it. Without his ability to play smart football and keep the chains moving, I really dont think we wouldve won more than maybe 7 or 8 games this year.

Ill admit I got a little emotional last night seeing him leave the field for the last time wearing 14. After the bowl game, I hope NFL scouts in the combines can see the ability he has to be a game changer and he can be successful in the NFL. After his career is over in the NFL, I will right now go on the record and say I would love for him to come back to USC as some type of coach. Im not saying take GA Mangus's job but, he is one of those guys that you always want to be around, a true "winner".

After 4 years here, he is going to leave this program with the most wins ever, something that it will really take someone special to break.

In Closing and an Open Letter to Connor Shaw,

Connor, you were a hell of an Athlete and Assest to South Carolina Football. Without you I really dont believe our program would be where it is right now, so thank you. Even with all of your great Accolades as a football player, your an even greater person. I loved watching how you handled yourself on the sideline with the other players, on the field directing the troops, in the pressers being respectful to coaches and other teams. Your a class act my friend and you will always go down in my mind as the best QB to ever put on a garnet Jersey. If you have half the success in the game of life as you did wearing a Garnet Jersey, you will go a long way my friend. Good Luck Connor, we're all going to miss the shit out of Connor Shaw #14.
#ForeverToThee

Thanks to Connor, the coaches and all the players. Oh, this is a message board, to get a message across, not a perfection board.

Well I'd like to see him have a chance in the big leagues... leave the offer on the table though that if it doesn't work out, he has a job. I'd love to see him as a coach if he cant do well in the NFL (I hope he does of course)

I must admit back in the day when HBC would pull Garcia and put Connor in I would get pissed. I thought he sucked and I never gave him much of a chance then. Since he has been our starter he has been a great leader, player and has always given his all. He has played through pain and injuries and got the job done. Sorry to have doubted you.

Connor Shaw is the greatest quarterback to have ever played at the University of South Carolina.
