We knew we wouldn't get a BCS bowl last week. I don't see what the big let down is! If you wanted to complain Y'all should have created a thread last week.

The team achieved the same exact things on the field during the regular season in either scenario. Yet in one scenario, the team has earned approval and support, while in the other, they have earned disgust. Makes perfect sense right?

This.

Just goes to show the intelligence level of said fans IMO. It took them a week to figure out what everyone else already knew.

I knew we weren't going to a BCS bowl. I just don't want to see us in another boring bowl in a boring city in a boring stadium on a boring network against a boring opponent from a boring conference.

I don't have a problem with us not getting a BCS bowl. I'm just saying the Cotton Bowl against OK State would have been A LOT more appealing and fun.

A win in a BCS bowl (which, in case you forgot, we've never played in) to get to 11 wins is a lot more appealing than getting an 11th win in the exact same scenario in which we've gotten it the previous two years.

Being a top 10 team with 3 consecutive 10 win seasons, the longest home win streak in the nation, and beating Clemson 5 years in a row simply does not earn my appreciation or approval.

I am very appreciative of all of these things, and I will support Carolina 100% in the Capital One Bowl. I hope Carolina beats wisconsin and gets their 3rd straight 11 win season. So, as I have said earlier, you can support Carolina and not be satisfied with the bowl game because I'm in that group. Ask the team if going to the Capital One Bowl was one of the goals set before the season started and tell us what they say. Every time I've heard coach Spurrier or any of the players mention goals it's usually to win the SEC and the NC.

Some people just kill me. They quickly forget where we were just few years ago. Now complaining. IF next year we go 8-4 and go to a bad bowl just watch out. Why cany people just enjoy us finally having success. AND NO it doesn't mean rest of us don't want to be SEC champs or NCAA champs or in BCS.

Yeah why would anyone want to remember a few years ago? what's wrong with forgetting? that's the problem here. Some fans (mainly the older ones who witnessed all the losing seasons) want to justify it by saying "look where we were" That's loser talk.

No it's called being grounded/realistic and keeping your perspective. We're not a powerhouse program but we are trending in the right direction and building a foundation. There's nothing "loser" about where our program is right now. We are a ****ing top 10 team right now. Look at the accolades we have built up over the last 3 years. Look at the level of athlete who plays in the SEC, the level of teams we have in the SEC, and the number of teams in the SEC. Only 2 teams play in ATL and only one wins the SEC. Only 2 get to play in BCS bowls. We are a contender. You don't have to be head over heels for the Cap 1, but acting like attending its beneath you is absurd.

Our past is relevant because it set us up where we are now. We don't have the tradition, facilities, etc that
most of these championship programs do. It's harder for us to get where they are. It takes progress and building sustained success. You can't just say "past doesn't matter, let's start contending for titles tomorrow." Life doesn't work that way.

Fact is we fell short of some of our goals, but also achieved some awesome stuff. If you can't look at the big picture and take some time to appreciate and celebrate what we did accomplish this year, then you need to reevaluate why you're a fan.

The bowl game is an opportunity to go vacation in Orlando, celebrate, and show support and appreciation to the team. I question anyone who turns their nose up at that.

I think the so called whiners are just the fans that have realized that we can't get too comfortable with any type of plateau. I for one am certainly happy that we have another good record which includes beating Clemson and going to a good bowl game...i also realize we have an extremely young team this season, but there was no excuse for us losing to ut this season. I think alot of us are ready for the next step to be taken. we are ready to reach a new level and that should be an expectation the fans should have at this point. we have the talent, we have the coaching, and I fully believe that we are seeing everything come together little by little. there's gotta be some level of patience involved as well though. we are going in the right direction. we will get there, gotta keep believing.
