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.
Your now putting words in my mouth. I said it's loser talk to revert back to where we were and try and justify it by saying "Look where we came from".

Bringing up the previous state of our program and the fact that we are building something from nothing is a valid point IMO. It changes things when considering the big picture.

If we wanted to play in a BCS bowl, we could have re-joined the ACC. Are any of you ready to do that. When we go to a BCS bowl, we'll earn it, not back into it by beating the likes of Wake and BC. Nobody ever thought we'd win back to back baseball championships either. I don't know when we'll play in a BCS bowl, but when we do, we will have earned it by beating teams in the best conference. We're on the right path.....the hard part is over, be patient and enjoy the ride.
We already own our in-state arch rival.....how good is that.

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.
Trust me I have. The way the defense rebounded was a thing of beauty. Finishing 3rd in the conference and in the top 20 in every defensive category after losing practically every linebacker was very surprising.

We were 14 points away from being undefeated, and 11 points away from being a 5 loss team.. There are some things that you have to scratch your head at that you just don't see from great teams. We can never just put it together for an entire season. Early in the season when the offense was on, the defense was off. When the defense was on the offense was off. Then you have your annual offensive blunder where I don't know if Spurrier just psychs himself out or what, but it's like you can call it before the season even starts. The schedule this year set up very well for us, and many thought it was our year. You need luck in college football. We had some but just not quite enough. Maybe one year the ball will bounce our way a few more times and some teams will fall. It sure seems like some teams are just plain luckier than us though year after year.

Keeping proper perspective is not "loser talk"

Winning the Capital One bowl twice in 3 years is a major step forward for this program. Consistency is something we've lacked in the past. If we can continue to be one of the most consistent teams in the nation (look at the number of wins the past 3 years and the group of teams that puts us with) then there is no doubt we will be getting into the 4 team playoff if we keep the consistency up going forward.

If you're happy with winning 10 games and playing in the whatever bowl, then be my guest, but some of us want to see our Gamecocks do bigger and better things.

I have no complaints. Will take Capital 1. Climpson gets Orange because they play in a weak conference. Should be Duke that gets it though.

I think a lot of people on here are confusing complaining with disappointment.

What makes you believe we'll be a top 4 team? Consistently losing 2 games will keep us right where we are. I'm not so much complaining about a 2 loss season as much as i'm more disappointed in the fact it's another coulda, shoulda, woulda been different season. The same coulda, shoulda, woulda, attitude we had when we were consistent at losing 5 games a season. It's mediocrity just to a somewhat lower degree than it was a few years ago.

Even if we got into a BCS bowl I wouldn't be jumping up and down. It's been SEC championship or bust for the last 2 years for me. I am not going to complain about the bowl, because I really don't care which one it is. Isn't this the bowl Spurrier used to make fun of Tennessee for going to every year? Maybe this is Karma.

It's funny how things are here on Cocky Talk, people complain about the team and the season, and the rest feel the same way but don't want to sound "negative" so instead they take there frustration out on other posters. If someone doesn't like the whining, how about just ignore it, or just say, "I disagree" or something. No need for the name-calling people. No need to jump down the throats of people who are just saying what you are thinking but actually have the nerve to say it. No one was thinking before the season, "Boy I would be amazing if we went to the Cap One Bowl again. That would be so much fun!" Come on. This is what I am a talking about. This is why we need a championship soon. We are a desperate fan base right now. We just are. Spurrier's years are dwindling.

I mean mediocre as in vanilla, ordinary, average, good not great, so-so, tolerable. Not saying those words are indicative of how we play but having the exact same seasons 3 years in row is that to me. The opposite of those things are excellent, superb, superior, and we have not quite reached that point. So when I said it's mediocrity at a somewhat lower degree, that's exactly what I meant.

ok when we were 0-21 would all you who claim our year sucked since we did not win it all this year not consider this a great season? I really have to defend our team who fought hard all year to fellow gamecocks? We did not win it all so we cuck crowd

Mediocre means an average to bad team. If 10-2 with quality wins we have is mediocre then sorry we don't see "mediocre" the same. Wake Forest, Maryland, Kentucky then u r right.
