2007 Gamecock Season Review

Let's stroll down memory lane right quick and talk about 07. I know most Carolina fans do not want to think about 6-1 then 6-6. But it is what it is and I hope you are like us here at LOHD and think that SEC glory is right around the corner.....

Steve Spurrier has now spent three seasons at the helm of the South Carolina program, and he has compiled a 21-16 record at the school. Last season was his worst thus far in regard to wins and losses, as the club finished 6-6, including 3-5 in league play.

Expectations were high after winning the first three games of the campaign, including a memorable 16-12 decision over Georgia in week two. Then, after a loss to LSU on the road, the Gamecocks posted three more wins to move to 6-1 overall. The team then went on to lose its final five games of the campaign. One of the losses was a three-point overtime setback to Tennessee, and a two-point loss to rival Clemson in the finale. When the bowl bids were announced, South Carolina was left out of the picture.

We will now forget 2007 as it still hurts to think about it and what could have been....

So now the 08 campaign is upon us and roughly 2 days until the Cocks take on the Wolfpack. A new and improved Carolina team will take the field lead by Beecher and Rank.
Look for LOHD to post its' Wolfpack forecast soon but in the mean time....what is your prediction for the score?
