Every year in college football, there’s a team with significant expectations that just implodes. In 2013, it was Florida falling from 10th in the preseason poll to 4-8. In 2012, Southern California started at No. 3 and ended up in El Paso. The year before that, Texas A&M started in the top 10 and finished off a 7-6 season in a forgettable bowl game against Northwestern.
This year we already have our winner in that derby of derp: South Carolina.
The Gamecocks are a mess, and you wonder now if they’ll rally and make even a minor bowl game or just pack it in for the year.
Sure, it sucks immensely that Georgia lost to the ‘Cocks, but other than that, I can live with how this is turning out. At this point, if they beat Florida, it probably helps out Georgia’s chances. And at least “the road to the SECCG runs through Columbia, South Carolina” meme is dead for another year.
