How to Make History
Gamecocks Game 3 Prediction (UGA)
Smelley will start but the big question is when and how much will we see of Stephen Garcia. Running back by committee will also be in effect against the dawgs as Spurrier is finally going to let Maddox, and Baker have a chance to run this season. Cook will still be the go to receiver, so what for the Dawgs to double team him early, to see if they can get Smelley to throw a bad pass. USC leads the country in interceptions, so let’s hope the offense can keep them to a minimum.
See you tomorrow
Smelley to Start

Is it finally time?
off to kansas
I am not sure what Spurriers plan is for a kicker for the future, but from what I can tell there is suppose to be a stud recruit in Blythewood.

Five Phases of the Dreaded Gamecock Loss
Starting with the sound of the final whistle it goes like this. From the buddies at the tailgate spot to the callers on the post game show everyone is in denial. I can’t believe we lost to Vadny. They are the worst team in the SEC (east), Man how the ***k did we lose? This question rings in your head and won’t get out for days (like the Roast Beef slam done to Crummy). You think it was a dream and then you start to feel the first signs of soberness…
The next phase is remorse. You fell like you got wrapped up in the moment while declaring coach has lost his damn mind and players suck after 3 years. You push through the weekend and bring yourself to watch the coach’s show and think there must be something I missed or some silver lining which leads to the next phase…
The next thing you know it’s Tuesday morning and you got the #2 team coming to town, what are you going to do? By this point the loss is an old wound that hurts but it didn’t kill you. You remember there is still more games to be played. You start to think, man are we going to get crushed? We will if last weeks team shows up. Or are we going to come out and play a good game for a change? I know, maybe its time for one of our young guys to step up and make a name for himself (Barnes? Maddox?)? It’s Wednesday and you’re finally sober again you realize there is some….
As you poor through the statistical data of the last 3 or so meetings with your upcoming opponent you realize there is hope. So what if they are the pre-season national champ. Look what the panthers did to the preseason super bowl champ without their #1 WR Steve Smith? That’s right whopped those San Diego Jorts wearing truckers!
Now it’s Thursday and you’re reading about how no one is giving you a shot in hell, Herbstreit is making remarks about a woodshed & XO's, Chris Low is riding the Moerno/ Stafford Heisman train, and somewhere Tammy is calling another coach for help. This is great… we are being underestimated, flying right under the radar, and have a chance to catch UGA off guard. Its time for vengeance, its time for the Final Phase!!!
Its Friday suddenly you take pride in the fact that Spurrier owns the Bulldogs, he owns Richt, and if not for 4 red zone turnovers we would be enjoying a 2 game winning streak. You remember the victory between the hedges against the same team last year and now we play them at home. A big win here and we are right back in it. SEC speaking if you lose an SEC game its better to do so to a team that won’t be in the race for the east; this extinguishes the loss. Its time to go Folks, get ready, cut out of work early, and start partying at 501pm…
Now you have recovered from the loss, redemption is on the way. Take a sip of that kool aid and know that when you hear 2001 tomorrow you can’t look in your heart and say we don’t have a shot. Its time for Redemption, Its Time for Gamecock Football! Its us vs the world so instead of saying oh no, its...
