The silence from Columbia is defeaning
Last year, schedule schedule schedule was the cry from Steve Spurrier and his followers. It's not fair, they are just out to get us, they don't want us crashing the party, JUST LOOK AT THE SCHEDULE! Meanwhile, people with sense laughed, and said this crap is cyclical, you'll get an easy slate soon enough, and you've just been such crap in the past you never noticed it before. Fast forward a short couple months, and why isn't Spurrier crying about the schedule anymore? No theories on how fair it would be to just use SEC East results to determine the SEC East Champ when they go to Athens instead of hosting the Dawgs? I guess ol' Steven was full of shii when he started spouting his nonsense last summer. For the record, the Gamecocks slate for 2013 sets up quite nicely, especially compared to a Georgia team that travels to Clemson before facing the Chicken Penii, then hosts LSU and travels to an improved Auburn instead of facing the dumpster fire that fogs Fayetteville. South Carolina gets their usual Thursday night spotlight in the season opener when they host North Carolina. That gives them a few extra days to prepare, and heal, and to all watch Georgia on Saturday, before making the trip to Athens in week 2. They get Mississippi St, [off week] then Florida, Coastal Carolina and Clemson all in Williams-Brice in November. Their road trips, aside from the Dawgs? Orlando for Central Florida, and a 3 game stretch in October @ Arkansas, Tennessee, and Missouri. When they fail to win the East, again, what do you think the excuse will be this time?
