Streaming this game on my Ipad right now..

One thing that I have noticed.. These 'Cocks are really going to have to stiffen up on D.  Otherwise, they are going to take real a beating at the hands of the Aggies.

The Husky-Blue Hose matchup wasn't good enough to make this list??? People are missing out on NIU's Maryland ripoff uniforms with corn shoulder designs and "DeKalb" on the back. Matte black lids are pretty sweet though.

If OSU had one of the worst pass defenses last year, USC & TAMU will rank right there with them. It's like watching 7 on 7 but none of the 7 are DB's.

Its the SEC! Great Offenses not bad Defenses. Read the memo

They drop a little further than that but not out of the Top 15. A&M will jump a lot of teams, though. #SEC

From what I've understood it should look pretty much exactly like A&M tonight. It's all about getting the ball to play makers in space.

yeah, and I am very impressed with the poise of Hill. If Barret has half that we will be alright.

Kenny Hill has the potential to be a higher pick than Manziel. The kid is good.

Don't worry. After this week they'll move up to fifth because they lost to an SEC team. A loss to an sec team is like beating a top 5 team. A&M will move to 4th, with SC CLEARLY behind them. But not by much.

Buckeye Guy said to my dad, "There's a long time Buckeye fan," when he walked past my dad and me at a game. My dad took it as him saying he was old, but not really though. From then on my dad always yells at the T.V when it shows him.  I also worked with his niece at Mount Carmel, and would always ask her how he was doing. He came up to visit the patients. Seems like a good guy.

So what will the SEC defenders excuse be now when you ask them how Texas A&M can tear up teams from the SEC ?When A&M used to be a garbage in the big 12. The defenders used to say well its because " Johnny Football" the messiah. Well he is gone now. I'm anxious to see mizzU this year and see if they can do what they did last season.  I don't know If you call South Carolina overrated or was there just too much SEC poll Bias with the inital ranking. But I enjoyed the ass whooping A&M put on them.

Maybe, but a system QB doesn't equal a bad QB. I'm not saying that the guys you mentioned are the best QBs ever, I'm just saying I always hear people talk about system QBs as though they aren't any good. They still have to go out & perform. They still have to make the plays...

 After week one, can anyone really say that there isn't at least 25 teams better than South Carolina?  Really hard to tell, nobody knows, so polls are really just opinions.  

In reality a 4 team playoff, isn't a wide enough sample of teams to ensure that the best teams get a chance to play for the title.  IMO,a 16 team playoff is the only way to go.  

-2 HS
chemicalwaste's picture

Well, I guarantee there will be at least 25 teams with a better record, so tale your pick. They would have done more to earn a ranking than south Carolina did. If you give up almost a point every minute of the game, you're not very good.

Is there some sort of B1G Wizard that magically causes all teams to not be able to throw the ball?

Spurious  Spurrier spews sewage and bile about BIG bottom feeders; subsequently gets sacked, shellacked, sacked, and whacked by A&M. Not sure if the “Twelfth man” traveled to Columbia tonight, or the wheels came off in the second half because of a pompous coach, or perhaps both! GOTTA LOVE IT!

Aggies coach said, “We aren't a one-trick pony", per the AP game summary. Apparently the Gamecocks are – minus Clowney!  Aggies: thanks for serving up a big pile of crow to “Mr. lovable”, the epitome of sensitive speech!

tKyle flood needs to take lessons from tress.  When it's 2nd and 2 you need to run it at least one of the two downs.

Vandy has lost 11 of its last 15 openers....most of which were at home somehow...and many were against MAC or whatever teams.  So not really.

That's a good win for Rutgers but almost irrelevant to the Big Ten

Rutgers game was actually fun to watch, even if it is against lowly WAZZU.  Liked seeing o-line running down to help up their running back.  Any win over the PAC-12 is a good one

Confront them with annihilation, and they will then survive; plunge them into a deadly situation, and they will then live. When people fall into danger, they are then able to strive for victory.

Not sure if South Carolina is bad and is yet another example of overrating SEC teams because they are the SEC, or Texas A&M is better than many (including myself) thought...
