- Sure, Christian Ponder had a “bruised tricep” and we wanted to go easy on the poor fellow, but our tackles need to be more aggressive…and quicker. No QB should be allotted that much precious time to choose what perfect receiver his flawless pass will grace the hands of. And yes, I do in fact have a minor crush on
’s former 2nd string QB EJ Manual. Call me. Florida State
- Do some early recruiting for a new quarterback. Seriously early. Garcia completed a ton of passes, but unfortunately a lot of them were to the wrong team.
- Find or create more consistent players. But really. The only truly consistent Gamecock is Spencer Lanning…and sometimes we can’t even count on that foot.
- Tone down what the announcers call “extracurricular activity” in between and after plays. A fight is always appreciated by bored fans, but do a little touchdown dance or something instead to entertain us.
I was seriously excited to watch the Gamecock's expected victory. Maybe this loss had something to do with the name of the bowl…you know…“Eat Mor Chikin?” Haha, Chick-fil-A. Or perhaps it was Lattimore’s stellar-performance-turned-sour due to an unfortunate knockout.
But thank goodness for Josh Dickerson, Kenny Miles, DJ Swearinger, Alshon Jeffrey, (I could go on and on) for turning the game around and making us proud fans.
So, we all can forgive the disappointing bowl loss…because we have a great season to look back on. 2010 showed us that the Gamecocks have a lot of surprises up their sleeves…or jerseys. Maybe next we’ll finally hand it to $cam
