2007 South Carolina Football

If you are looking for our Current South Carolina Gamecocks Football page, check out: 2010 South Carolina Gamecocks Football.

See bottom of page to discuss South Carolina football.

South Carolina started out like gangbusters. They beat Georgia in Athens and eventually had a 6-2 record and were ranked in the top 10 nationally. Then the brutal schedule has caught up to them. South Carolina ended the year with 4 straight losses including cross-state rivals Clemson. Their defense especially wore down. They ended up 6-6 (3-5 in the SEC) and in 4th place in the SEC East. I thought they deserved a bowl more than 6-6 Alabama, but it didn't happen.

Still, Gamecocks football is on the rise, under Steve Spurrier. Look for a better 2008.


South Carolina football, under the direction of head coach Steve Spurrier, has come into its own with several winning seasons and appearances in bowl games over the past three years. The University of South Carolina (the "real" USC) is well known for its die-hard fans who gather at Williams-Brice Stadium to cheer on their Gamecocks.

Head coach Steve Spurrier is back on for his third season and is confident that South Carolina football will produce another winning season. The team has never ranked high in the SEC; never finishing better than 5-3 in the conference.

Last year, the Gamecocks ended up with an 8-5 record, but only 3-5 in the SEC. They only managed to beat three of the lowliest football teams in the conference (Vanderbilt, Miss. State, and Kentucky). They ended up 5th in the SEC East. BUT, they were competitive in virtually every game - and nearly beat Florida.

After the addition of Spurier three years ago, South Carolina has developed a much stronger football program. They made it to the Independence Bowl in 2005 and the Liberty Bowl in 2006 (beat Houston 44-36). AND they beat cross-state rival Clemson 31-28!

The offensive line has been an ongoing problem for the South Carolina football team.

However, they have talent in the quarterback and wide receiver positions. Some key players for this coming year are going to be quarterback Blake Mitchell, who passed for 1,789 yards and had a 61% completion record last season; wide receiver Kenny McKinley; and, tailback Cory Boyd.

The Gamecocks had five players selected to be on the pre-season All-SEC team, with linebacker Jasper Brinkley being named to the first team. Coach Spurrier is hopeful that some freshmen will step up big time. In fact, he believes, USC's incoming freshman class, may be the best in school history.

We like what Spurrier is doing with South Carolina football. But, darn, the SEC is just so tough. The gamecocks play atLSU, Georgia, Tennessee, and Arkansas; then home against Florida and Clemson. Just a brutal schedule!!

If the Gamecocks can win 7 games - that will be a great accomplishment. That would get them a winning season and into a minor bowl game. That's what we think will happen.
