    Carolina's win last night just about erases any chance of the Gators pulling an upset at Columbia, SC. Instead of being dejected at the prospect of missing out on a trip to Atlanta, now the Gamecocks are motivated abd have an SEC East title to play for.

    The 'logic' around here is staggering.

    Clowney seemed to have a good game for the most part. He can be very disruptive lining up as a tackle. Missouri's receivers were rather quiet other than the 96 yarder. SC DBs seem to be getting better or maybe the frosh QB had a bad night.

    They just need a bigger receiver other than TE to step up in the red zone. Their short yardage back, Wilds, is returning next week I believe so Davis might not be relied on as much in the red zone.

    You can tell the season has been a dumpster fire when we're dreaming up scenarios where we have a remote chance to lose in Atlanta.

    The Gamecocks had two quarterbacks throw for 200-plus yards against Missouri. UF's QB had 92 yards.

    They were also shut out until the fourth quarter. Do you have a point somewhere?

    USC has the rest of their season now in Williams-Brice, where they play substantially better than on the road. Not too surprising as that's the same story typically with the rest of the conference...

    USC, UF, and UGA each now have 2 SEC losses - only UF has a loss to a non-East Division rival, which bodes well for them in a multiple tie. Missouri now has 1 SEC loss to an East rival.

    USC needs UGA to lose 3 SEC games as they have the head-to-head, while if Missouri loses a 2nd SEC game and USC wins out, USC holds the head-to-head tiebreaker over them. Both UF AND UGA need Mizzou to lose 1 more SEC game than either of them lose to have a chance...

    UGA and UF play each other next week in a huge match-up that may clear up a bit of the tanglement in the East: whoever walks away with the 3rd SEC loss puts USC and Missouri in great position:


    Missouri: obviously still controls it's destiny all around with only one loss but Franklin isn't coming back, and they host UT, go to Ole Miss, and then host Texas A&M. TAMU looms huge because while they have issues on defense, they have shown that they can outscore most any opponent and Mizzou's own passing defense has struggled a bit this season while their own offense may have some questions with Franklin gone.

    USC: only controls it's destiny versus Florida - needs Mizzou to lose at least 1 more SEC gm with it's H2H tiebreaker, and needs UGA to lose at least 1 more, or have 1 more SEC loss than itself has.

    UF: controls it's destiny vs UGA and USC - will play both games away from the Swamp, UF also hosts Vanderbilt who is playing for bowl eligibility and whose offense has been stout (if QB Carta-Samuels returns from his leg injury). Needs Missouri to lose at least 2 more SEC gms.

    UGA: controls it's destiny vs UF and USC with the H2H tiebreaker vs USC already in pocket - like the Gators needs Missouri to lose at least 2 more SEC gms. UGA may still have the toughest SEC road to travel, as they not only have UF in a neutral setting but also have to go to Jordan-Hare Stadium and play a resurgent Auburn who will most likely be 9-1 at the time and a top 10-ranked opponent being included in the national title discussions.


    For all the remaining East division teams vying for the title, Missouri IMO is in the best spot obviously because they are the sole leader out in front. Both UF and UGA are behind the 8-ball a bit because they both need Missouri to not lose 1 but 2 more games before the season runs out. USC has issues of it's own but beating Missouri last night with Missouri being the out-right leader in the East at this time means it will have the H2H trump card should both teams end with the same conference records.

    Returning home after 3 weeks on the road should be a boost for the Gamecocks but a huge test lies next week versus Miss State. USC is a bit beaten up over the 3-game stretch and will need to heal up quick for the Bulldogs: MSU has wins over Alcorn State, Troy, Bowling Green, and UK with losses to Okie State, Auburn, and LSU. USC will then have their final bye week preceding the Florida game.

    Didn't realize that was the first OT win for the HBC. It was SC's first OT win also.

    At the SC board, they are calling the game, "Shaw Shank Redemption." Now that's good!

    Spurrier's best play call of the night is to put Shaw into the game....How long will Shaw last?
