calling all gamecock fans
PostPosted: Thu Jul 13, 2006 2:43 pm Reply with quoteBack to top

college football is edging closer to get things rolling i thought i'd post a dawgvent favorite: any gamecock fans out there who want to come back with something just bring it!

THIS IS SOUTH CAROLINA FOOTBALL

Following the 2004 season South Carolina has an all-time winning percentage under .500 (500-507-44), which ranks 88th all-time in D-1A football...only 29 programs have been worse. A few of the notable football programs who have been better than the Gamecocks include such powerhouses as: Duke, Western Michigan, Toledo, Navy, UAB, Central Florida, Ball St., North Texas, Nevada, East Carolina, Houston, Northern Illinois, Utah St., San Jose St., Vanderbilt, Akron, Baylor, UNLV, Kansas, and Rutgers just to name a few. This is Carolina Gamecock football.

In the 59 seasons Carolina has been affiliated with a conference, they have won that conference once...the ACC in 1969, with a 7-4 record. Since the Associated Press began ranking football teams in 1936, the Cocks have finished in the Top 20 of the rankings only five times in the 67 years. Carolina has never finished in the Top 10 of a major recognized poll...NEVER. The first year of Gamecock football was in 1892, Carolina won its first bowl game 103 years later under BRAD SCOTT. In 109 seasons of football, Carolina has yet to participate in one of the ?Big 5? Bowls (Rose, Sugar, Orange, Fiesta, Cotton). As Carolina is set to begin its 110th season of collegiate football, they have won 10 or more games in a single season once. In 110 seasons, Carolina has won more games than it lost only 50 times. In 110 seasons, Carolina has won 6 or more games in a season 33 times, and lost 6 or more 35 times. This is Carolina Gamecock football.

South Carolina has had 32 different head coaches in its storied tradition...only five of them stayed longer than 5 seasons, 21 of them have losing records. Add to that the winning tradition the Cocks have enjoyed at home in Williams-Brice Stadium. Carolina is 18-36-1 at home in conference since joining the SEC. It?s another Carolina Touchdown!??not quite. Of the 56 programs, which have played more than 1000 games all-time, only four have scored fewer points than South Carolina in their schools history.

Since joining the SEC in 1992, Carolina has had a winning record in the conference twice. In the eleven seasons as a member of the SEC, Carolina boasts a conference record of 33-62-1?only two teams have been worse: Kentucky has 26 wins, Vanderbilt 11. Although Carolina has yet to finish in the top two of the Eastern division, they have finished last twice. Carolina has yet to win six conference games in a season, something that only Kentucky and Vanderbilt have done in the last 11 seasons. And no one should forget the fact that Carolina went two consecutive seasons without winning one conference game, not one. Carolina had an impressive string of 21 consecutive games with a loss snapped in 2000 by beating New Mexico State (then let the rest of the country know what Carolina football was all about by tearing down the goal-posts). Since 1992, only three times has any non-probation member of the conference failed to win two or more games overall in a season?South Carolina has accomplished this feat twice, Kentucky once. Since 1992, only once has a conference member failed to win a game overall in a single season?you guessed it, South Carolina. South Carolina?s all-time record versus other current conference members is even more impressive: 2-9 vs Alabama, 4-8 vs Arkansas, 1-4-1 vs Auburn, 3-18-3 vs Florida, 13-41-2 vs Georgia, 8-6-1 vs Kentucky, 2-14-1 vs LSU, 5-7 vs Ole Miss, 5-6 vs Mississippi St., 2-18-2 vs Tennessee, and 11-2 vs Vanderbilt. That?s correct, Carolina leads the all-time series against 2 SEC teams...Kentucky and Vanderbilt. This is Carolina Gamecock football.


But, the comparison of only 12 seasons in one conference does no justice to the tradition of South Carolina football. So lets compare the Cocks record versus D-1A schools they have played 20 or more times: 36-61-4 vs Clemson, 17-24-3 vs Duke, 3-18-3 vs Florida, 13-41-2 vs Georgia, 9-12 vs Georgia Tech,11-17 vs Maryland, 16-34-4 vs North Carolina, 25-26-4 vs North Carolina State, 2-18-2 vs Tennessee, 21-12-1 vs Virginia, and 34-20-2 vs Wake Forest. That?s correct, Carolina leads the all-time series against 2 of these 11 teams...Virginia and Wake Forest. This is Carolina Gamecock football.

Gamecock fans justify their horrible football record thru the strength of the SEC conference. But let?s look at the Gamecock?s record against the other big 4 conferences. South Carolina is 172-221-18 vs the ACC, 6-8 vs the Big 12, 22-26-5 vs the Big East, and 3-5 vs the Big Ten. This is Carolina Gamecock Football.

But all this tradition and past records are meaningless. What is more important is the recent history. Only losers live in the past. We are in the best years of Carolina Gamecock football, and the future has never been brighter...or has it? Carolina is coming off another losing season, the 9th in the last 13 seasons. Overall record since ?the legend? Lou Holtz became Head Coach: 27-32 (0.458) . Since 1995: 43-59-1. Since Joining the SEC: 60-75-1. Since 1990 South Carolina is 69-86-3. Carolina has finished in the Top 15 once in the past 15 seasons, and been to three bowl games in that span. This is Carolina Gamecock football.

2003 was the season that the Cocks would rebuild and compete for a SEC title with their consecutive top 10 recruiting classes. Yet, they finished the season with another sub 500 performance. A season that ended with a 63-17 thumping at home from archrival Clemson. In 2004 ,the Carolina fans were again boasting about another great recruiting class. How did that end ? How about 29-7 and staying home AGAIN ! Now here comes another washed up coach and the fire extinguishers are being charged and a new 2001 CD has arrived at William Brice. Through out the south, subtle echoes are being herd everywhere, ?Wait till next year!.?

fascinating that vanderbilt has an overall higher winning percentage than the cocks. and what an amazing series record we have against them: 42-13! truly amazing. i don't mean to always bring everything to gutter level, but i can't help but notice that the only year the Cocks won a conference title was in '69.

granny holtz sure did start and end with spectacular thuds didn't he? an 0-11 campaign his first year ( has any other SEC team ever gone winless? how did they fail to beat whatever patsy a la prairie view a&m that must have been on their schedule that year?) and getting completely pantsed by clemson in 03 and then the big brou-ha-ha free for all ultimate fighting challenge barn yard melee that cost them a bowl in 04.

wow i love talking about football. considering the Cocks shameful past, what Spurrier did last year was miraculous. i'm too lazy to do the research, but has ANY team ever defeated Florida and Tennessee in the same season since the SEC expanded in 1992? i don't think so. how ri-dirk-ulous (that's for you tommy) is it that the Cocks did it before us, lsu, alabama, auburn, etc. and they came within 3 points of beating us- so to repcap last year Spurrier had the Cocks 3 points from winning the eastern division. that is mind blowing. nobody believes me but i definitely think that Florida is going to go 6-6 this year, and Spurrier and the Cocks are gonna be our toughest competition to win the East. We'll win it of course, but the Cocks are going to finish in 2nd place again. Fat Phil aka the Great Pumpkin will rebound and have a nice season but he'll still just finish 3rd in the East. urban cryer will be 4th. welcome to the SEC bitch.

html is supported ... it's a little tricky, but I recommend checking out how to do "bbcode". When replying and you have the "post a reply" box on the screen, look for "options" (bottom left) and then click on bbcode. You can figure it out from there.

I think it's funny to see the co-eds wearing their Cocks apparel.
