Am I the only one who just doesn't care about the Gamecocks anymore?


Oct 28, 2018, 5:48 PM

I used to pull hard against them every week and actually be upset if they ended up winning. But this year it's like who cares? They are just 1 of countless power 5 programs stewing about in mediocrity.

Our program is so far beyond that at the moment. Every program in the country (minus a few) wishes they were Clemson right now.

Like sure SC will always be our rival but the tone of it for me has certainly changed the last few years. Much different than the 2000s where it was the game I cared about most.

After or before our games, and I just don’t care what they do any more. They aren’t even close to our level, and it feels great!

That's to be expected when you're contending for


Oct 28, 2018, 6:11 PM

top playoff spots.

The Gamecocks will always be our rivals, as they should. But in our position other teams become potent rivals...teams like Bama, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ohio State, etc.

We want those types of rivals...and becoming elite means we should have them.

But the Clemson/South Carolina rivalry was ingrained over 50 years ago, when I was at Clemson...and that won't ever change.

I think we should replace them with a more worthy opponent, like Citadel or Coastal Carolina.

I have a disdain for their fans.

The team itself is just blah. I do get a kick out of it when Jake starts getting hyped up. It's like a kid on Christmas morning about 30 minutes after having an eggnog milkshake.

However, watching one of their boring games feels like punishment, and not worth the effort.

For some reason, I care.


Oct 28, 2018, 6:34 PM

Maybe it has to do with growing up down there near them. Maybe it's '09-'13. Maybe it's how their radio guys said "Tommy, they want to target Spiller's LEFT ankle. That's the one that's tweaked." Maybe it's how delusional their fans are. Not only do they think Clemson's "not much better than us or better than us at all." I'm not really sure what it is but one thing's for certain...

I hate them.

I want them to lose every game in every sport.

That perfectly sums up how I feel. It's been that way a little since 2015 and getting more every year. Last night when they came back and beat Tenn I really couldn't care less. Five years ago that would have bothered me.

I still watch them and pull against them, but I have no emotional investment in pulling for them to lose anymore.

Re: Am I the only one who just doesn't care about the Gamecocks anymore?


Oct 28, 2018, 6:41 PM

I care about it. Coming into this season, Clemson ranked 17th in all-time wins 18th in winning % among the Power 5 & Notre Dame

South Carolina, along with Wake and NC State, represent our path to pile up the wins the way Tennessee, Georgia, & Florida beat up on Vandy & Kentucky for decades or the way that Oklahoma & Nebraska padded their records against Kansas, Kansas State, & Iowa.

I want to stack up historically with those programs you mentioned, not just during the Tajh Boyd-DW-TL
era.

I don't even care about losing to Clemson anymore. You guys are so far ahead of us it's comical.

It used to hurt to lose to you guys. Those losses in '05, '07 and '08 hurt and were soul crushing. But last year it was what it was. There wasn't even a glimmer of hope. You knew what was going to happen.

I don't even think i'm going to go to the game this year.

I have heard a lot of that from friends and family that went to SC. It almost feels as if yall are sliding into that K-State territory of a school thats historically bad but has experienced some fairly recent success, now back having to grind out bowl eligibility and never being in real contention for titles, although Snyder is at least liked by most. Not a troll as I find most of your posts logical and respectful.

Mostly thanks to baby Bentley I pull for their failure(s).


Oct 28, 2018, 7:28 PM

That dumbazz just will not let sleeping dogs lay. From his "not much better than us" comment. To his flopping and hopping on the field of play like a kindergartener.Jake just rubs this fan the wrong way.
In short I do care enough for USuC to fail hard in Football. I never want them to seriously sniff a playoff birth or championship of any kind. Flick'em.

Re: They seem to be getting better


Oct 28, 2018, 7:40 PM

and I expect them to play Ole Misery close. Playing at UF will tell us a lot. UF has a good D and running game, but has problems at QB. If Bentley doesn't play horrible in the Ole Miss or UF game; he will start vs. Clemson. I do expect them to roll out DJ on someone late in the season to see what happens. They used 2 TEs a lot vs UT in the running game (similar to BC?). If BC can't hurt us running (we will see in a few weeks), USCe won't. I don't see us letting our guard down on them.
