Gamecocks in Top 10...

Talk about crazy....Not only is the University of South Carolina leading the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division, but the Gamecocks have climbed in the top 10.

The South Carolina Gamecocks moved up to No. 7 in the country in the Associated Press media poll released today. The Gamecocks are No. 12 in the USA Today coaches poll.

It is the first time USC has been ranked in the top 10 since Oct. 7, 2001, when the Gamecocks were No. 9 after a 42-6 victory over Kentucky.

It is also the highest ranking for USC since the Gamecocks were seventh heading into the 1984 Gator Bowl against Oklahoma State (which they lost 21-14).

I can not believe that USC is ranked higher than USC in the AP poll. Yes, that is right - the Univ of South Carolina is ranked higher in the AP that the Univ of Southern Cal. I know, I too, had to take a double take on that one and rub my eyes to make sure I was seeing it correctly. South Carolina is getting a lot of love in the AP poll...ranked higher than Florida too....wow.

Do you guys agree with the rankings?? I just hope it does not go to the heads of the South Carolina football team.

i dont know who needs to be ranked where this year. Every one keeps losing to teams they arent supposed to. USC hasnt done that this year. Who knows where they should be ranked. I think So. Cal should have fell out the top 10 for atleast a week. I mean look how far the badgers fell and the team they lost to was undefeated.

Polls are polls, the only one that matters is at the end of the season, southern Cal lost to a pretty bad Stanford team. Michigan lost to a pretty good 2-A school, is there a difference.
