Seem like any fan who wants to win when its very close and know one knows the answer. Tends to take a very bad sign for any fan to admit "defeat" when it comes to stuff like this.
I'm straight up 50/50. Could easily see him going to either.
Not sure who gets him, but the neutral 247 guys who really know recruiting are all predicting SC so they must know something. That thread makes me lol when they refer to SC was where UK is now not so long ago. Yeah we stunk in 98-99 but we are way closer to Bama now than UK is to SC. Plus every recruit we are on is a 4 star this year could be our best haul as far as overall class and star ratings.

Actually in 03 we only won two games in the sec east and they won one. Why go on their site and act like we've been great for decades because we haven't been.

Well I didn't go post on their site but I read the whole thread and SC football has not been where UK football is right now since 98-99. 03 SC football was better than 12 UK. I'll repeat, the wins and the talent on campus right now has SC much closer to Bama than UK is to SC. Also compared to UK SC has been great for a little over a decade, 11-1 record head-to-head and 4 new year's day bowl victories is light years ahead of their program. I could go on and on, comparing a first time head coach and turning around UK to what Spurrier has done at SC is a complete fail.
its better not to go on their site & present ourselves as great. that is true
on the other hand, given that we had a ten year winning streak against them in football, that being a fact, they really ought to just stfu about how they stack up against us, imho.
we may or may not have struggled at times but have beaten them like a sway backed rented mule, they are the doormat of the SEC in football & they ought to just accept reality
I just got ticked that some of our fans decided to trash their program on their site. Show some humility and people will respect you, show arrogance and people will despise you no matter how good you are. I just wish some of our fans could act like we've been here before instead of acting like spoiled rotten bullies.
I didn't read the whole thread, just the first page but when I saw that clown that actually works for them, Josh Edwards, state he doesn't see what the "selling point" for South Carolina is, I don't blame any Carolina fans going on there and letting them know the truth.
That's an asinine thing to say.
I agree with you, but overall, they are being very sensitive. I don't think we had but a few that really trashed them and every team has those posters. Many of our poster said they wouldn't be surprised if he picked UK, but we definitely had a shot. Most of their posters couldn't see any reason to not picked him and thought we were over confident perennial losers if we thought he was going to pick us. We acted very mildly for an 11-2 team recruiting against a 2-10 team.
My issue was the insider is too blinded by his fan ship to give an honest opinion. He also saw NO reason he would want to go to USC. Longer relationship with coaches, football school, winning team, one of the greatest coaches in history, also known for coaching QBs. Many reasons and their insider couldn't name one. That's not professional.
Edit- apparently, he isn't the actual insider, just a contributor. So, I'm not as surprised. Doesn't seem to have many sources, just homerish reasons to pick UK.
