The mighty Roosters of South Carolina begin the season on Thursday, September 1, on the road, in a very important divisional and conference game against the Vanderbilt Commodores.

Normally I would have started this thread myself before you did.

But after the absolutely pathetic season for my SC Gamecocks last year, I am not finding it easy to muster much enthusiasm about CFB going into this year.  Plus, the evil Tiggers are ranked 2nd to start the season.  Phooey.

We'll have a great defense before long. Muschamp has had great defenses everywhere he has been. But, will we have an offense?  Muschamp says the offense is Kurt Roper's deal, and he is staying out of the way, and only wants to know what the overall strategy is, for the game, so that he can plan his defense.

We got great coaches who have instilled a blue collar work ethic I to the program. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised in the long run.

There are some videos, produced by "The State" newspaper, I believe, called "Gamecocks Confidential: Forever To Thee", which, you can watch on YouTube, of you get a chance today.
There are 4 of them, so far, and they're a documentary type series which highlight the new coaches, show off the new facilities, spotlight certain players, and follow the timeline from the arrival of Coach Boom! until now.
They're in HD, very well produced, and chock full of information.

Gamecocks finally came alive late in the game to end up winning 13-10 against Vandy.

No, we went back to the original garnet, like in the 80s and 90s. UnderArmour was producing the wrong color during the Spurrier era.
We've also brought back the garnet helmets, and black jerseys from the 90s.

No, senior Carolina kicker Elliot Fry nails a game winning 55 yard kick to upset 5 point favorite Vanderbilt, on the road, in season opening and conference play.

I didn't know it was an original color.  Almost purple looking.

I will give you an A for effort in trying to put the best possible spin on this.

But sorry, having to come back from 0-10 at halftime against Vanderbilt to eke out a 13-10 win (with help from a Vandy missed field goal late in the game) is nothing to get excited about, no matter where the game was played.  

The fact that Vanderbilt was favored to win this game in itself speaks volumes.   No decent team should ever be an expected underdog against Vandy.

I didn't see it.

Was mostly watching the SC - Vandy game.

Regardless of the official final score, Tennessee fans must be freaking out over that game.   Much hyped Tennessee should plummet in the rankings.    The number 9 team in the country they most definitely are not.

Vandy is a good team and Derek Mason is a good coach.
Robert, we're gonna be OK, man.

1/2 the teams will be 0-1 after this weekend. We're not in that half.
