South Carolina Football: Poor Prognostication

(Grand Bay, AL)

You put South Carolina at the bottom of the SEC east. That is unfortunate. While SC doesn't have an offense or defensive headliner their 2007 season so far has shown what many predicted them to have which is good ability to compete on offense and defense.

SC has overall talent 2 deep equal to anyone in the SEC except LSU (who by the way depending on your source was No. 1,2, and on in recruiting in 03,04, and 05). SC's defensive team speed is considered the best in the SEC by several coaches they have played so far (including Les Miles). Offensively they trail Florida and Kentucky in the east but that's it. Better picks next time.

So Far, our South Carolina Prediction is indeed off -- just a bit!
by: Mo Johnson

Bill -- thanks for the note. I couldn't agree with you more. So far, we are way off on our South Carolina prediction. It's always tough to stick your neck out at the beginning of the season -- especially when picking someone other than Vandy or Kentucky to finish last in the sEC East.

Actually, as our commentary has always made clear, we never thought the Gamecocks would be bad. We just thought the whole the SEC East would be strong and that South Carolina had such a tough schedule that they would end up at the bottom.

Actually, I'm not ready to back off that prediction quite yet. So far South Carolina has done exactly what we expected -- with the sole exception of the Georgia game. We thought they would lose that one.

But, of course they did lose to LSU, and they still have games against Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida, Arkansas, Vanderbilt, and Clemson. Any of those games could be a loss.

So, it's a bit early to start celebrating in Columbia. Let's see where we are in a month.

Thanks for the comment (and especially the info) though.

I agree with you. SC's record and rating does not do them justice. They have a lot of talent that the SEC has not seen.
