Q: South Carolina football sucks? You suck. Why can’t you see that we have been good over the last few years and why don’t you keep on kissing Alabama and Florida butt all the time. How dare you write something like that. I’m never visiting this site again. You suck. – HT
A: Yes, I do suck, and so does South Carolina football compared to most BCS-level programs.
Go back to what I wrote and explain, exactly, why South Carolina football doesn’t suck.
“ … the last ten-win season was in 1984, which accounts for the only ten-win season in the program’s history. In fact, there have only been two seasons in school history of more than eight wins (1984 and 2001) … the same number as Vanderbilt. The Steve Spurrier era has been considered a disappointment, yet the 35 wins from the Ball Coach represents the best five-year run in the history of South Carolina football. Meanwhile, Florida has won 35 games in the last three seasons.”
The fans are some of the most loyal in all of college football, sitting through thick and, well, thick to watch a mediocre product year after year after year. I’m not dogging the people around South Carolina football, I’m not ripping on Spurrier (one of the coaches I like), and I’m certainly not firing on the fan base. But the wins aren’t there, and while the program has been decent, it hasn’t done enough. Yeah, saying South Carolina football sucks is too strong, but it certainly could stand to be a whole bunch better.
Now, if you want to explain why I’m wrong, I’m all ears.
