There were three individual great plays that made up that 377.

Ellington's TD catch on 4th down where Shaw scrambled and just threw it up for grabs.

Anderson's stupid catch in traffic.

Carson's 50 yarder on the draw play.

Other than those, USC's offense was suffocated.

Without Carson's run, I think we would have lost. We would have had to punt from inside the 5. If Dylan plays up to expectations, we will be much harder to defend this year. I think "we" will be our toughest opponent at least for the first half of the season until we get all the kinks out.

You need luck to win championships. and the only fluke was the UGA game. You're also forgetting Auburn also basically ran for 1000 yards against UGa, Bama and Mizzou. That wasn't luck. Also put 400+ rushing yards on UTenn.

1. @ auburn (Gus Malzahn offense on the road, gahhhh, they always seem to have our nubmer. )
2. georgia (Their running game gave us fits and they are all back and our DL is not all back.)
3. mizzou (they lost a lot of players. but Mauk could be the best QB in the SEC and they still have a bunch of speedy skill guys on offense and a few good defenders return.)
4. @ florida (swamp is always tough. Should manage if we don't play like Clemson and beat ourselves this time.)
5. Speaking of @Clemson (I'm sure they'll be feisty until the last 8 minutes.)
6. @Vandy (This game should be lower, but Vandy is always an adventure no matter what.)
7. aTm (It's first game at WB, bad news for an inexperienced QB)
8. @ kent (They're going to be looking for a signature win at home, Freshman QB though)
9. ecu (This game could actually be close. They have a lot of talent, we know how to beat them though.)
10. tenn (They have the talent to compete with us, I just have a gut feeling though, their season will not be going very well and the wind will be out of their sails by our game. I think we destroy Rocky Top this year.)
11. furman (yep)
12. south alabama (yep)

We've lost to a lot worse Auburn teams and we never beat them and it's at Auburn. They've got Gus Malzahn and Nick Marshall and they always have Runningbacks. And their defense is getting better. Its a new year. What happened last year is irrelevant.I look and see what they have coming back and they are going to be tough to beat even if LSU or Bama are better, which they probably will be.

Just because something doesn't happen that often it means it's a fluke. Those were two evenly matched teams and one team played well and one team played poorly on that one play. Same thing with UGA, the defenders didn't bat the ball down. "Crazy" plays happen all the time in football, so it's not really a fluke.

I would only switch your 2/3 picks. Clemson is higher than UT and A&M only because it is on the road. If we played them at home, they would not rank above the two conference opponents.

I'm confused.

You say that what happened last year is irrelevant but what happened in 2011 (loss to Auburn) is.

Same ol' Carolina fan mentality.

You don't really need defense if you can score 50+. Just need the defence to make a couple stops.
