Wow, that's pretty crazy! I know everyone wants championships, but had you told me the season would end up like this after week three, I wouldn't have believed you.

Wow. A lot of people would argue, however, at least they provide reasoning and can back up their ranking with a formula.

Wow at least the rest of the country is taking notice. Now these next couple years will be the difference because now people expect us to win and are putting us in elite company. We don't surprise anyone anymore and everyone will be gunning to play us. We will get everyone's best game and the pressure to perform will be great. But I think with our coaching staff and talent we can live up to the expectations. GO COCKS!!

Default Re: CFN 2013 Final Rankings

I don't think anyone who is a true Gamecock fan will agree that we are the
"final" #2 team in the country, but it's nice to see us getting some respect
in the final rankings that we haven't been getting from the national "experts"
the past few seasons. I don't think even this poll's results are saying that
we're the second best team in the Nation, but we are the second best "stats
wise" and had a remarkable season when you compared to how the other
nationally ranked teams played their individual schedules.

We actually did a remarkable job with wins/losses vs our Strength of Schedule
considering we were the team with the lowest number of seniors in the nation,
and playing with a second level defense that was loaded with freshmen and
first year starters. Said it a few times since the end of the season, and I'll
say it again here for emphasis reasons... This (IMO) was Steve Spurrier's
best coaching job (start to finish of the year) in his entire career as a head
coach at any school !!

No...nobody is arguing that we are the #2 team in America at the end of the season. However, based on the criteria they used, then we are the #2 team in their "final" rankings.

I absolutely love the fact that they give their formula instead of just throwing the rankings out there without any rhyme or reason. This one has a science behind it.

I'm just saying that anyone with half a brain would not rank SC ahead of Auburn. The formula is messed up. It takes into account the great wins, but bypasses the horrific losses.

And anyone with half a brain knows AU was lucky to have only one loss. You guys should have lost to UGA, but the fluke play saved your butts. So without the fluke play (notice I'm not even mentioning the UA game, because you were tied with them before the weird ending) you guys would have had the same number of losses we did going into the UA game, and one of those losses would have been at home, to a UGA that had lots of players out with injuries. That means you wouldn't have played in the SEC championship or the national championship games. You guys had the record you had, so congratulations on that, but don't make like you guys dominated your opponents and were clearly better than we were.

I've seen you say multiple times how AU was one bad half away from being undefeated. Well guess what, we only had one bad loss, and it was basically because of one tremendous catch. So, again, quit trying to convince yourself and everyone else that AU was better than they actually were. Sure, you were one bad half away from being undefeated, but you were also one fluke play away from being a two-loss team, just like USC.

Auburn dominated UGA for 3 quarters, then pulled a SC and crapped the bed in the 4th. SC vs UGA was a more back and forth affair. And you just played badly the entire game against Tenn. Should not of been that close, the catch was just the icing on the cake. If you're going to chide Auburn on their miracle, don't forget the times SC nearly bungled the lead away this year Vandy/UCF, and did UTenn.

The difference is we NEARLY gave up the lead in those games, but you guys did give up the lead. We didn't crap the bed nearly like you think we did, we just had a really smelly fart. But I agree we stunk the place up in K-ville, but the fact remains it took a magnificent play (not lucky like your play against UGA) to get them in a position to upset us. You're conveniently missing the point, too. Regardless of what happened before UGA took the lead, the fact remains they did have the lead against you, and it took a miracle play for you guys to win. And lest we forget UGA actually almost pulled off the comeback win even after that play, so AU's team was a long way from having a convincing win. So my point remains, we were one play away from being in the SEC championship game and you guys were one failed miracle away from being out. Those are the breaks, and they went your way, but don't believe your own hype, because that AU team wasn't as good as their W-L record indicated.

Good for Auburn you won the SEC but please don't get on here trying to convince us you dominated everyone you played. Because if UGA can knock the ball down and Bama makes a tackle you don't go... Not to mention the loss the LSU. So please spare us if we don't agree.

I wish we had played this year so we could have settled this. But looking at the common opponents I don't see how there is argument. SC lost to UTenn and UGA. AU whipped Tenn and beat, however luckily, Tenn. SC beat Mizzou, in miracle fashion * cough cough* in OT. Auburn whipped Mizzou. AU loses #1 FSU, @#14 LSU. SC losses @NR UGa, @ NR Tenn. AU>SC
