Default Congrats on a Great Season

Congrats to all of the Gamecock fans out there on a third straight great season.

I have enjoyed watching Connor Shaw this year and will be sad to not see him on your team next year, except when you play us!

You guys return a lot of starters next year but lose a couple of the best players you've had in a long time, it will be interesting to see how the team comes together next year.

Should be another strong year.

Welcome to the offseason, where Tennessee has been living the past month or so, it isn't fun....is it August yet?

Unless you've gone through several generations of mostly poor football, you'll not get much sympathy from us. In 1969 we went to our second bowl game. The first one was in the 1940's. We won out first one in 1995. You don't know misery over the long haul.

However, thanks for the kind words. Each season is so unique, hard to predict to a close degree how they will turn out so far in advance. These years have been bliss that I, and many other older Gamecocks never thought we would live to see. While we all want to do even better, I am never going to complain over what SOS has done for us, or may yet do.

Thank you Ericvol. Always nice to have a classy poster from another fan base. I'm hoping our team can come back next season and do good things. Here's to a successful 2014 for both teams (well except when you play us).

Eric, without a doubt, my fav VOL fan ever. You guys beat us this year, major kudos to your team. I seriously dont hate UT as much as I used to because of you. You are a class act, 100%. Look forward to seeing your team at WB next year friend. Have a safe offseason, and try not to be too bored. My GOD, football season is over now. What the EFF am I to do...isnt Baseball coming around soon???

Great words of wisdom for fans that maybe don't remember the gosh awful bad years of Sparky, Fat Brad, and watching Coach Lou try to put together a program. It has been a long and painful road and like I always tell GA and Tater Fans, "They don't know what real pain is and they don't know how it feels to pull for a team for so many years to only get your heart torn out each week and then be there the next week hoping and praying that we could just finish with a 6 win season and make it to some lesser bowl and wait with all the excitement of a kid at Christmas counting the days till we played in some minor bowl and hope that we could make a good showing???? Like my favorite wrestler (Dusty Rhodes) of all time use to say during his "Stanback Commercials" He knew a lot about pain, how to give it and how to take it! Well, that's the way I felt for many years about being a Gamecock Fan and thank goodness we have a solid program under a great coach that should carry us to even greater achievements in the future. I am thankful for all of our Gamecock Family these days, but God Bless All Of Us That Had To Endure The Hard Years! May they never enter the City Limits of Columbia, South Carolina again! Amen!

Lol. Surprised you didn't mention UT more. The Eric/k's normally make some subtle boast of their team

We do lose good players, but keep in mind we've lost just as talented guys recently (Gilmore, Ingram, alshon, ace, etc). We just reload.

Had to have been the biggest upset this SEC season.

All off season I had a feeling that would be the game where we would be playing our best football and it would be a tough spot for y'all.

I am expecting the payback to be painful next year in WB.

Trust me...do NOT take them for granted.

I didn't appreciate TN's success enough growing up and while I was in college because I didn't know how bad it could get.

I know that while you are winning it is hard to remember the pain of the bad years, you want to shut it out and forget it ever happened, but don't lose sight of how great what you've done is!

Hopefully for SC this is just the begininning, but you never know it could be the pinnacle so appreciate it like it could be that.

I am with you. 11-2 for three seasons in a row is mindblowing given where this program was. There was a lot of discontent on this board about not making the SECCG and I think some people forget how easily the tables can turn. Next year will start and probably end with our QB.

Boy we have some cocky (no pun intended) fans. The man comes here to say congrats on a great season, and some of you make snoby arogant remarks as if we're the 15 time defending national champs.

I understand we have some fans that are too young, but as brat said, our history isn't anything to brag about. Let's be excited and proud of what our program(s) has turned into, but lets do it with a little bit of class.

Eric, thanks for your kind words, I hate that we dropped that game in Knoxville, but hopefully we have some payback for you next year. I told the 2 Vol fan coworkers of mine all preseason that that game scared the crap out of me.

Thanks for the kind words...and from experience, it does suck when you season is over before December.

I think you guys are on the right track...I do think you will have a step back record wise next year, just because you lose so many starters...but give Butch Jones 3 years, and I think UT will be back to competing for the SEC.

Yea next year could be scary. We are going to be young everywhere pretty much. With no experience on the lines. Hopefully there will be flashes of some much improved talent though.

Our sched is brutal again. We play 9 bowl teams with one of the teams that didn't go bowling being Florida who we haven't beaten since 2004 when I was a SO. in college at TN.

It is hard to look at the schedule and see a way to get to 6 wins without multiple upsets.
