Kinda pitiful article. Sounds like a piece written by one of our beat writers during Spurriers first few years here.

Sounds like they have some taters up there.

"South Carolina did NOT stop the Badger running attack. Unfortunately, the Badger play-calling did."

Isn't this the same thing as saying we beat ourselves?

In all honesty I thought their play calling did them in as well. They would get the run going, and then try to throw the ball. We couldn't stop them running, until they had NO passing threat at all. Stave was at least serviceable throwing it, the other guy was AWFUL. Once Stave was out, they were not going to win the game, and our coaches knew it. Yet, they continued to try to throw PA passes.

That are spot on with that statement though. South Carolina could not stop their running game. South Carolina did take advantage of turnovers and also did a great job of defending the passes; the Gamecocks scored enough and put the time clock on their side - that is what stopped Wisconsin's running game. USC was the better team, that is ultimately why they won, the how of their win comes in putting themselves in the right situations, controlling the clock and forcing Wisconsin to have to go to the passing game to score/keep up.


We sat on the Wisconsin side and their fans were courteous and complimentary of Connor Shaw, Bruce Ellington, Shaq Roland and Steve Spurrier. The Wisconsin fans sitting next to me said they did not know that we had our own Johnny Manziel and called him the best player they saw all year.

re: Halftime
Wisconsin's band had a better halftime performance than USC's band but only because the Badgers could march and play their instruments simultaneously. Our band was louder though. the Wisconsin fans were surprised that the South Carolina side booed the Wisconsin band as they took the field.

re: The Citrus Bowl
Samuel Jackson is the spokesman for Capital One and the Capital Bowl. Here's the thing, if Samuel Jackson asked you, "What's in your wallet?" and you are inside the Citrus Bowl, you are looking at the replay screen, if someone who resembled Samuel Jackson asked you, "What's in your wallet?" and you are outside the Citrus Bowl, you are getting robbed. It is not a great area to have a bowl game - especially when you are in the home of Disney World, Sea World and Universal Studios.

The synopsis.
UW ran well and stopped the run, but the Gamecocks made big plays and the Badgers didn’t.

As much as Orlando makes of tourism as the top destination in the country, you would think this would give the city some incentive to clean up the blight in the surrounding area.

We stopped them 2 plays and they couldn't get one yard. We did what we do sometimes, stopped them when we had to and that is what counts.

This. If you are playing a top 20 team, the game can be decided by how many stops you get, usually. If each team gets 8-10 possessions, and you stop them on 2 or 3, you should win. As SOS says, the only real defensive stat is the scoreboard. The number of yards between the 20's is really meaningless unless it leads to red-zone success. Point wise, we held them below their season offensive average and scored more than double their defensive average. At least our coaches know that the idea is to win the game, not have the best stats.

I'll answer some of the questions about the bowl upgrade. They had the money coming in much earlier for a BIG upgrade. It would have basically been a new stadium. Some of that money was generated because UCF played their home games there. While publicly UCF was a partner in this they went behind Citrus Sports back and cut a deal with Brighthouse cable and in a surprise move announced that they would build their own. It took away one of Citrus' main users as well as the possibility of selling naming rights to Brighthouse. It has taken a while to recover. Additional funding sources had to be found, etc.
