  1. I'm not just concerned for myself. I have many friends and family in the military. I think war is one of the dumbest and most pointless institutions humanity has ever invented, and most all of the time there is no real need for it to solve an issue. War is for dickheaded leaders to use their people as pawns. I don't think it protects anyone in the long run, just causes more hatred, and I will be so pissed off at Donald Trump if he starts one on his way out of office.
  2. I'm not one to get so personally triggered over Trump's behavior to the point of going ballistic, but if my generation gets drafted, deployed, and slaughtered in World War III because of Donald J Trump, I will personally curse his name every single day until the day I die. The bastard even connived his way out of getting drafted decades ago when he could've gone to war, and now he's going to kill thousands and thousands of people. He doesn't even give a shit. I don't care what political party you root for. Inciting fucking world war III? f**k him. This isn't necessary.
  3. How will this help Trump win more than it will give his democratic opponents a leg in the door to call him crooked and incompetent? Around debate time, do you really think the message of "I've been impeached, so that shows you the democrats are haters" will ring more true to Americans than the message of "this man has been impeached because he's abused his power for his own personal political gain, and here is X, Y, Z evidence that he did it, which ultimately got him impeached"? I mean I don't underestimate the amount of gullible people in America, but when Trump goes on the debate floor to talk about his impeachment, I don't see how he could spin it into something in his favor. He's always had the luxury of hiding behind twitter and Fox News to combat his scandals. When election season rolls around though, he's not going to have that proxy. He's a man with a ton of dirt on him. In the history of politics, if you have serious dirt, opposing politicians use it against you. Again, he can tweet what he wants now and his steadfast supporters will eat it up. But the second he has to be pressed on it on a debate stage, he will have no evidence or facts to help him out. All he can do is stand on stage and say "don't listen to them, there's nothing to see here. they're just haters".
  4. Watching many Trump voters try to spin this as a "democrat L" and trying to laugh about it has made this whole ordeal hilarious. I mean fine, you can try to act like this will ultimately help Trump in the long run, but you tell me how it went for the the last 3 presidents who got ran out of office/impeached. They're all remembered in the history books for being scandalous and crooked. It's objectively not a good thing to be impeached.
  5. Yeah I found it to be very carefully worded in a way that compensated for Caslen's slip up, ensuring trust and confidence in Muschamp, but at the same time not actually promising anything. I don't think Muschamp is safe for 2020 at all.
  6. The way many of you are floundering and dodging the discussion tells me just how "in deep shit" Trump is right now. Yes, we know he's currently our president. You don't need to keep deflecting conversations with "You're just triggered Trump is your president and you can't admit it, libtard". Just a big yawn. Y'all have fun.
  7. You know, I think there is more legitimacy to UGA fans being upset at coaches compared to our fans being upset with Muschamp. Watching this video, the guy makes a good point early on. There is no greater correlation in college football than recruiting and success. When you finish with top 3 recruiting classes the past 4 years in a row, big wins, championships, and consistent playoff bids are the expectation. You have THE most talented roster in America bar none. When our fans get upset with Muschamp, we remember that our recruiting is not at the same level as UGA, Clemson, or Alabama. We typically finish at around 20th in the recruiting rankings. We're a team that's been slowly but surely rebuilding over the past 4 seasons. There's more room for error, and not every bad play or loss comes down to coaching in of itself. With Georgia though, Kirby came into the HC position with already elite talent. The cupboard was full, compared to Muschamp's being bare, and he immediately took off and found major success with it. Not only this, UGA continued to recruit the best players in the country. Their entire roster is full of the best talent in America. There is no excuse to lose this game against the Gamecocks. South Carolina came into the game underrated, more focused, and more prepared. Our talent level isn't where UGA's is, but it's close enough so that we were able to win so long as we gave more effort than them. And we did.
  8. Weird video, but even if everything he says is true, I'm not necessarily peeved at Muschamp about it. The game of football obviously just didn't mean that much to Belk, and that's honestly okay. But as Belk says, college football is a business, so if he isn't committed enough to eating right, working out consistently, and putting in a ton of practice like the rest of the team does, you are a waste of scholarship money as far as Muschamp is concerned. Will is all about the effort, toughness, and discipline. If you come in to a program coached by Will Muschamp 100 pounds heavier than what he recruited you as, and that weight essentially debilitates you from practicing, lifting, playing, and trying, Muschamp is not going to like that. And then once Belk got inevitably injured due to that weight, Belk didn't in the necessary rehab and guided strength conditioning to recover and keep up his strength. He just didn't care that much to go through all the physical and mental strain of injury rehab. And that's fine, if that's what Josh wants. But don't expect Muschamp to allow you to sit around and not try.
  9. Tua Tagovailoa currently sits at the top of many pundits Heisman-watch boards. The kid has impeccable footwork, perhaps the best in the country. He sidesteps edge rushers smoothly and with ease, and does a terrific job of always planting his feet and delivering an accurate throw even when under pressure or on the run. He’s a great dual threat QB with a powerful NFL arm, and he’s had a flawless start to the 2019 season: 7 TD’s, 0 INT’s for a 66.7% completion rate, and a 93.5 QBR. So, what is Tua’s weakness? Against Clemson in the 2019 national title, he was still fairly poised, maintained good footwork, and made quick decisions all game long. What seemed to affect him the most was the consistent pressure the Tigers threw in his face. In the first quarter of the game, Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables was content blitzing Tua over and over, not worrying as much about covering receivers and closing windows. At first, Tua did a good job getting the ball out quickly and accurately, despite the pressure. As the Tigers were playing man to man defense against the best receiving corps in the country, Tua had open options to throw to all night long, and he did so with fair success in the first half, going 15/17 for 158 yards through the air. What started to break him through was Clemson’s commitment to sending pressure after him. Even when the Tide was throwing 60 yard bombs for TD’s, Clemson stuck with the strategy of prioritizing pressuring Tua, and it began to wear him out, forcing a few game-changing mistakes. In fact, the only two incompletions of Tua’s in the first half were two interceptions, one which was returned for a touchdown. So while he did have a dazzling completion rate of 88%, those two bad basses Clemson forced made all the difference in the game, and completely disrupted Alabama’s offensive consistency and confidence. Tua’s accuracy in the first quarter compared to the fourth took a major turn for the worse, and Nick Saban had no answer with a lackluster run game and a shaken QB. Throughout all of last season, teams tried to defend Alabama’s offense by prioritizing receiver coverage. The problem is, Tua is too good to not succeed, even with terrific secondary play. In order to really challenge Alabama’s offense, it is a must that you consistently pressure Tua, even if that means sacrificing the success of your secondary. Corner blitz him, send LB’s after him, just force him into so many quick decisions that he eventually makes a bad one amidst all the good ones. That is what breaks his rhythm, because Tua is not used to throwing interceptions. He only had four all season long until the Clemson game. Alabama is also in an unusual situation the past couple years in that they don’t have one of the best running games in the nation. Their passing attack in phenomenal, without a doubt the best in the nation, but their rushing attack is just decent. Not bad by any means, but just good, not great. So with this in mind, what do the Gamecocks do? The answer is neutralize the Tide’s best player - the centerpiece of their offense - the cog that makes the whole machine work. The key to this game is sending enough bodies after Tua so that the pocket is consistently claustrophobic, not even collapsed, every play. The thing is, Tua will be good no matter what. Multiple deep passes will be made, touchdowns will be scored, 300 or more passing yards is likely. But in order for South Carolina to have a chance, you have to have faith that consistent pressure will force enough errors out of Tua, which will start to negatively affect his overall play. The Gamecocks’ best aspect on their defense is the line. DJ Wonnum, Javon Kinlaw, and everyone in that rotation has to have the game of their life. Line up every down with the goal of being in Tua’s face by the end of the play, and perhaps South Carolina has a chance of cracking Tua and Saban. It’s all a matter of what you prioritize covering or pressuring on defense. When you want to break a system, you start at the top. The rest cannot function without it.
  10. Dowdle and Harris are probably the two best backs on the team, with Feaster being in third place. Ranking our backs, it looks to me like: 1. Harris . . 2. Dowdle 3. Feaster I could definitely go for a three back rotation. They are each good enough to make plays, and rotating them keeps them from being prone to injury and causes stamina to last longer throughout the game.
  11. The 72-10 win marks the second highest amount of points scored in a game since South Carolina joined the SEC, and breaks a program record for most offensive production in a game with 775 yards on the day. But while the opponent was vastly inferior, and a large margin of victory was something to be expected coming in to the game, the Gamecocks did something today that they hadn't accomplished in four years under Will Muschamp: play a complete performance from start to finish. The Gamecocks scored 10 touchdowns in the matchup against the Bucs, a feat last accomplished 6 years ago in the prime of the Spurrier era against Coastal Carolina in 2013. Every drive was met with consistent quarterback play, strong showings from four different running backs, and a flawless day from the receiving corps with zero drops. Two outstanding offensive performances come from true Freshmen QB Ryan Hilinski and RB Kevin Harris. Hilinski finished his day 24/30, 2 TD's, 282 yards, and a lone INT. A great first start from the Californian who looked poised, accurate, and comfortable all game long. Kevin Harris, perhaps the MVP of the day, had a jaw dropping showing with 3 TD's and 147 yards on only six carries- an average of 24.5 yards per carry. The defense also had an inspiring day, playing all the way into their third string. No noticeable individual performance, but it was great to see the first string play lights out, and watch the 2nd and 3rd strings hold their own and get some valuable experience for the young bucks on the team. The defense held the Buccaneers to 267 yards and forced three turnovers. This is the first time that South Carolina has come out and played a complete performance under Will Muschamp. While it was an FCS opponent, the Gamecocks clearly lit a fire under themselves after a heartbreaking week one loss, and responded by having a record breaking opening day at home. Here's to hoping this fire continues to inspire the team as the Gamecocks march into week three against the formidable Crimson Tide.
  12. I'm going to wait until after the Bama game to really pass judgement on wether BMac is a problem or not. He's been a pretty good OC for the past year, and then all the sudden after the Clemson game, his play calling has looked incredibly lackluster and unaggressive. The UNC game was bad, but I read that BMac actually called a lot of aggressive deep pass plays, but most of them completely failed due to the offensive line being so bad and not giving Jake enough time. I actually wish that we just ran the ball most of the game. Our very first drive, we handed it off to Dowdle four or five times and he broke into the secondary for large gains very consistently. Then when Dowdle needed a breather, Feaster came in and did the same. I thought we had a great first and second drive because we established the run game, took a bunch of pressure off of Bentley, and got into the redzone, scoring points, without doing anything fancy. But shortly after, we started leaning on the passing game more, and our backs barely got any touches. So my biggest complaint with BMac in game 1 isn't that he wasn't aggressive enough, it was that he didn't stick with what worked. We ran the ball very well in Q1, and then willingly stopped the rest of the game. I think had we just rammed it down their throats from start to finish, we could've walked out of there with a double digit victory. Alas, it was important to the coaches that Jake had a big passing game to break his slump, so we called pass plays galore, only for them to completely fall apart over and over. I also think part of it is that the staff was worried about not keeping their foot on the gas, as last year we lost to Florida by exclusively running the ball to burn clock (being conservative), and ceasing our passing attack. I think they tried to do the inverse against UNC. They stopped running the ball in favor of trying to make pass plays down the stretch. I think UNC understood this, and so they consistently sent pressure after Bentley. But anyways, I want to see how we play call against Bama. That's a game where an OC has to put all of his cards on the table against a great team, go with what's working, and be aggressive. If BMac is unable to adapt in that game, he may lose me.
  13. I watched a lot of Sam Howell's 2018 tape from high school. Kid has the measurements, throwing technique, arm power, speed, and elusiveness to be a legit NFL starter one day. But as of right now, his accuracy is spotty, his eye discipline is absolutely horrendous, his decision making is slow, and he does not have a very good understanding of how to read defenses. He is a talent, but much too young, inexperienced, and not coached enough to play well in Game 1 of his collegiate career, especially against our defense. I like our chances of dominating his throwing game. Like I said, he could be eventually coached into a real NFL talent, but as of right now, he is not ready to start in a college game. Way too slow mentally, does a terrible job reading defenses, and has awful eye discipline, telegraphing who he is throwing to way before he throws the ball.
