I heard the interview on 1075 this afternoon. It sounded to me like he was trying to hype up a game that he will be broadcasting on ESPN. If the country thinks there is a chance for the upset they will tune in.
Personally if we are ready to play and don't make mistakes I think a lot of TVs around the country will be changing stations in the 2nd half.
who said who about what?
must have been on shrooms.
Isn't ESPN covering the game? I thought the guys in the booth typically refrained from making predictions on games that they are calling. (sorry...I didn't see Surfer's post when I added this)
I don't care because I know that the final score will be 31-14 Gamecocks...thus says the Swami!

I am brand new to this board so please don't take this the wrong way. I would really appreciate your sharing with us how a team that is globally picked as no less than the third place team in the East and a Top 10 team in most polls is going to lose 6 games. Could you list them...the ones that we will lose?
One other thing, give me your rationale for stating that their offense may be better than ours.
Are you saying that ESPN would resort to hyping a game that they are going to broadcast? What is the world coming to?
Possible losses to lsu, Arkansas, and uga are self apparent possibilities.
Finding three more losses among Tennessee, Florida, Clemson, Missouri doesnt strain my brain and that doesn't take into consideration the diabolical Vanderbilt or a possible Connor shaw injury or two.
As to vandy being better offensively, I don't think they will be, but mr morrell just made an argument for Stacy and Matthews as frontline sec players and perhaps Rogers will make a jump in his second season of starting.
I also don't think shaw is an absolutely proven commodity (nor does the rest of the country), there is a question as to playmaking, and I haven't seen the USC OL
I've spent the last month or so watching some of our games last year and it is tough to think of the offense we showed versus Tennessee, Florida, Vanderbilt, miss state, lighting it up.
If I'd seen any practice this fall I might have a better sense but I haven't. It is an open question, too, whether spurrier will call the best game for what we have.
I will probably go with 9 as my prediction. I picked 10 last year. Both years that would be my high side.
Yep, thUGA just carved us up . . . to the tune on only 41 total yards more for the entire game on the same # of plays.
They turned the ball over 3 times (2 INTs and I fumble) while we turned the ball over 2 times (2 INTs). Both teams had 2 fumbles not lost.
thUGA was 5-12 in converting thrid and fourth downs, while The USC was 6-16. Both teamsa had 2 sacks and both teams had similar penalty stats.
The better team won, whether by forcing more costly TOs or burning them on a well-executed, perfectly timed (and called) fake punt. How many times has thUGA won a game in similar fashion against The USC? Many, but no one ever beats the butt sniffers. They always "give up" the game.
