Gamecock fan gets slapped in the face by reality:
Will Muschamp’s Gamecocks are still not ready to compete with the big boys. I know, call me Captain Obvious, but it’s true. Yea, the first half was competitive for the most part. Take away a pick 6 on Carolina’s first drive and it’s 13-10 at worst going into halftime. The second half was a different story as UGA scored 3 TDs on their first 3 second half drives and the Gamecocks responded with, well, two 3 and outs and an interception. Anyway, I’m not here to give y’all a game recap. My point is I think our lack of depth and, overall youth, caught up with us in the second half. Georgia is a legitimate national title contender and has clearly separated itself from the rest of the pack in the SEC East. I was one of the people out there that thought Carolina would compete against UGA. Actually, I picked the Gamecocks to pull the upset on the GABACast. I was wrong. The Gamecocks aren’t ready yet. They don’t have the players depth wise to hold up for 4 quarters against the elite teams around the country.
Ummm… you left out something.
Your guys weren’t a physical match, either. Which is why I’m a bit skeptical that the “A 9 or 10 win season is still on the table” projection plays out, particularly if regression to the mean rears its ugly head this season (the ‘Cocks finished minus-1 in turnover margin Saturday).
