u5c is a 28 point favorite over Akron...

if they only win by 21, will Akron claim a moral victory?

Akron is not that desperate

They know a 21 point loss is a loss. They are not ok with sec participation ribbons.


Buying potential 7th win w/out ticket revenue to pay for it?

Sketchy economics angling for a little better bowl game.

Will SCAR fans appreciate the difference in bowl game status?

Will the AD earn enough off of bowl revenue to offset the cost of flying Akron down to Columbia for a ritual thumping?

Probably not ...

Any way you look at it, SCAR is throwing good money after bad.

It wasn’t for money. They were scared they wouldn’t get 6 wins

Facing Tennessee and Ole Miss they figured they could easily lose both and of course lose to Clemson. It was an insurance policy not a money maker. Which is why it would be so great if they lose and then lose their bowl game to go 6-7. Coots still have a losing season on the table. But somehow I’m sure that would feel like a winning season to them because it’s not as bad as 5-7.

I think the Zips are getting 1.3 million to come down if I heard correctly.

If we run in a TD with under a minute to play with our first string QB handing off to the starting running back for a 21 point win it might as well be a loss in my opinion.

I like how you equate yourselves to the Zips in this scenario.

Ill bet you Akron down 14 doesn't call 2 timeouts on SC last possession and then boohoo of scored upon!


Funny...

I don't recall ever hearing you whine about that when Spurrier was doing it at u5c.

I'm sure that was different though.

Can you actually find an example of him doing that?

Or are you just making things up as usual?

This argument confuses me. USC was in the red zone 2X to score, but were stopped. If you don't want the opposing team to score, then stop them. The game doesn't end until the clock says 00:00. Beware of Alabama next year....


Re: Funny...


Posted: Nov 28, 2018 1:15 PM
 

I don’t care that you scored. The difference between 14-21 points made no difference in how close the game was. That score was a big deal for you guys thought.

How about 11/28/09

Leading by 10 (27 - 17) with under 2:30 to play, Stephen Garcia completed a one yard pass to Wesley Saunders to put u5c up 34 - 17.

Now go ahead and defend, rationalize, and justify it.

Poor Biggie. You’re so terrible at analogies.

Can you post what Spurrier did on the next possession with 50 seconds remaining in the game?

lol classic biggie. Only to you can proving you wrong somehow make you right.

There is a reason you’re not posting what Spurrier did the next series.

But everyone knows why you won’t. Because Spurrier kneeled the ball when he had the opportunity to run out the clock with 50 seconds to go.

Clemson didn't have the ball at the end of the game...


Posted: Nov 28, 2018 1:25 PM
 

u5c did.

When Spurrier scored late, you didn't hear Clemson fans whining about it.

It's not the offenses job to stop itself.

You were lucky the Clemson offense didn't hang 70+ on your pitiful defense. If not for a dropped pass in the endzone, a fumble by Dixon, and a bogus offensive PI call, Clemson easily score another 21 points.

“Clemson didn’t have the ball at the end of the game”

?? obviously because you felt the need to score with 50 seconds left when you could have run out the clock.

When USC has the ball with 50 seconds left in 09 we just went ahead and took a knee.

It’s literally the perfect comparison and you’re refusing to even consider being reasonable. I love your dedication.

So you're saying that in 09...


Posted: Nov 28, 2018 1:53 PM
 

when the game was clearly over, the last u5c score, rather than taking a knee, was OK.

Typical Clueless09 !!!

It seems to me that my example is the perfect comparison and it is you who is refusing to even consider being reasonable.

?????? It amazes me you can even make that post with a straight face.

During our last score we couldn’t take a knee because there was too much time on the clock. It was a 4th down and goal with 2:33 to go.

During our last drive when we had the ability to run out the clock, that’s exactly what we did.

What are you struggling to understand here?

When Spurrier, the all-time champion of running-up the score on opponents, does it, you rationalize, justify and defend it.

When anyone else does it, you whine and cry about it like a prepubescent little girl.

Re: Funny...

Spurrier didn't run scores up at SC because he didn't have the horses to do it. Rest assured, if he'd had Florida talent at SC he would have tried to embarrass everyone he played - just as he did at UF.


Well you're team has proven they are good sports...


Posted: Nov 28, 2018 12:46 PM
 

When the winners try to take a knee....Right?


Sorry that SCar couldn't stop a run up the middle from 7


Posted: Nov 28, 2018 12:49 PM
 

yards out. Member how Clemson stuffed all those goal line plays SCar ran earlier? Or how chumpy SCar was vs Florida at the end of that game when they were just taking that same knee that you've been whining about since Saturday?

Appreciate the comic relief you provide. Hey - there's always next year.

SC scored with 2 minutes left against Vandy this year. 37-14.


Re: u5c is a 28 point favorite over Akron...


Posted: Nov 28, 2018 1:22 PM
 

Yeah. Do you guys really not understand the difference between the two scenarios?

Serious question? I’ll explain it if need be, but it sounds like you guys are intentionally being obtuse.

Yes now I see the difference. SC had a 16 point lead to Clemson’s 14. Also SC instead of scoring on 2nd down could have taken a knee 3 times and Vandy might have had 10-15 seconds to go 98 yards for a score.


Intentionally obtuse...aka Classof09***

The Clemson coaches saw what transpired when the Gators took a knee at the end of the game. The Gamecocks thought taking a knee was an insult so they were showing more fight at that point than they had shown during the game. To minimize possible injuries should the Tigers take a knee, the safest option was to run the ball. True to form, there was no contact by the Gamecock players and the Tigers scored another TD and escaped with no injures. Barring any serious injuries during the conference championship game, the Tigers should be in good physical shape as they march to the championship phase.

What I can't understand is the continuous whining over a TD in the closing minute of the game. The Gamecocks had 60 minutes to stop our offense. The object of your whining should be directed at your defense. All we hear from the Gamecock fans is the vaunted "$EC Defense". Yes, the Gamecocks have injuries but so do other teams. Where is that $EC depth?

To many of you Gamecock fans -------Your envy of the Tiger program is so obvious, it permeates every aspect of your thinking. If you want success, why don't you attempt to emulate what we are doing rather than spending your time whining and attempting to denigrate every aspect of our program. The national media recognizes our program as being elite and, if you happen to follow the same source, you will discover how your program is perceived, and it isn't flattering.

How did taking a knee work out for Florida this year ? Do you really think our coaches didn't notice that ? They decided not to take a knee as part of the game plan.

Did you see the reaction of the DL when he was taken out of the FL game ? like a spoiled brat.


It’s up to 30.5 points now!!!

So keep it less than 24 and Parade Day in Akron on December 2nd.

Gooooo Zippers!!!
