“I have a one-year time table.”

When it comes to fan expectations, South Carolina’s have always been… um, highly optimistic.  So Boom may be a perfect match for them.  At least for a while.

    Should have hired Muschamp. He has proven himself as a DC and has experience as a HC.

      Yes, but we stole Kirby instead. You could have picked anyone you wanted. The last hire had a tremendous resume and got you 1 eastern division title, so with a record of success like that, how could you not get the best?

      the experience as a HC was condemning…

    My prediction is that Will will be arrested 7 games into the season for assaulting an official. He used up all his goodwill last year at Auburn and we know SEC refs have long memories. His wife had better get him some strong drugs to calm his butt down.

    Listening to Muschamp sounds like some kind of North Korean military press release. Doubt we’ll hear the same shtick next season but, alas, it’s USCe so we probably will.

    Maybe he’s a brilliant man who should be a hero to us all, because what we think is an unfortunate string of his personal failures is actually his SECRET PLAN to inflict as much damage as possible on all our most hated rivals….. hmmmmmm

    …. my hypothesis will be confirmed if USCe posts three consecutive losing seasons and BOOM ends up replacing Paul Johnson at GT……

    Conference collegiality and U.S. Department of Justice Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives reminders set forth in Regulation of Explosives suggest that we provide this sign when we send our best agents. That way peer member feeder programs can prepare for post-blast damage control. How did they miss the sign

    Mr C bought a bottle of ‘insecticide’ at an estate sale. He couldn’t understand how the ‘insecticide’ killed all the fruit trees until he figured out the previous owner used the ‘insecticide’ bottle just as a container and didn’t change to label. USCe bought poison unwittingly on the short market and thinks it will be successful in achieving a goal. Spraying season starts this fall. Boom = SoD with less confusion and more anger.

      Harvey Updike could have used this in his defense.

        Chemical Al from Dadeville was a specialist in plant warfare

        Do not use Spike 80DF where desirable woody species are near plants targeted for control. A small amount of Spike 80DF reaching the roots of desirable trees or shrubs may cause their severe damage or death. See “Use Precautions” on the label.

    So they went 3-9 and he doesn’t intend to rebuild? That would worry me. To say you’re going to the Dome first year with that kind of talent isn’t ambitious, it’s delusional. And therefore counterproductive. Which is why Muschamp has not succeeded as a head coach. He’s all bluster and no method when it comes to program-building.

      I don’t understand. He trained under some of the best

    Guess he sweated out the fan expectations waiting for an 11-yr old girl to ask about defeating UGA and he had to think of something besides “Guaranteed”.

    And naturally the SCU fans are eating this up. They love the attitude and overall bravado that he’s displaying. Ironically enough, as Saxon touched on above, if he would have stated something more realistic, such as: “well, we have a long way to go to get to where we want to be, but with continued hard work we’ll have a program that the gamecock nation will be proud of”; again that would have been more realistic but also a statement that SCU fans would have basically yawned at.

    In a way, the SCU fan base and Muschamp are a perfect match for one another, as both have had limited previous success yet carry themselves as if they are on the cusp of greatness overall. Of course, such marriages rarely last, in which the eventual breakup typically is a nasty one.

      Smart arrives at a 10-win program and says, “We’re nowhere near where we need to be.” Muschamp arrives at a 3-win program and says, “We don’t need to rebuild.” Couldn’t be more revealing. The Black Knight from Monty Python, in a pool of blood, trash-talking with only one limb left. “It’s just a flesh wound!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKhEw7nD9C4

        Part of me feels that Boom is smart enough to know that the deck is stacked against him, in which, best case, he’ll need time and some good luck in order to turn the program around. Thus, this is simply part of his overall shtick in effort to drum up support and to keep the spirits high until he’s able to do so. The other part of me thinks that indeed Boom is delusional, and thus he can turn around a program that lost to The Citadel last year and have them playing in the SECC in Atlanta the next.

        Normally I’d go with the former, but given the myriad crazy statements Boom has made along with his other bold claims over the years, I’m leaning towards the latter. During his initial PC, he proudly claimed that he could “sell ice to an Eskimo,” (thus SCU will be reeling in top recruits in short order). Normal, well-adjusted people simply don’t make such proclamations, particularly those who in recent years have failed more than they have succeeded.

          South Carolina finished #28 in recrootin’ last year, and they’re currently #30 for 2017. But if you read their board, you know the truth is that Muschamp is tearin’ it up in living rooms. He goes in, makes that teeth-gnashing face, at Momma, and the family says, “Where do we sign?”

    Looking at the state of both programs, do not see anyway we lose to them in next 5 years.

    I had to look it up.

    It was 2004, not 2006. The game after we woodshedded LSU.

    And yes, it was a Wagers-led crew.

    Pass the bourbon.
