| SEC Rant|| End of the regular season, do you consider your season a success or failure? - theGarnetWay on 12/3/13 at 1:25 pm|
For SC it is kind of difficult. We failed in our main objectives which would be winning the East which would ultimately give us the shot to win the SEC outright.
But with that said we accomplished a lot of first.
1st 5 game win streak over Clemson
Longest home win streak in school history

LSU and SC.
SC's last losing season? 2003, 11 seasons ago.

Well after the affair saga became public Tiger Woods hasn't won but a small fraction of what he used to.
Jeff Gordon is another one.
Both are still good, still making some serious cash, and playing / driving, at a pretty good level. But compared to what they used to do they both have seemed ki...
| SEC Rant|| Poll II: Weakest West Champion since 1992? - theGarnetWay on 11/20/13 at 7:48 pm|
Well I know the Mizzou fan was trying to start a troll thread and quite frankly I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did because I didn't think there was much of a debate to begin with considering we ended up with 5 losses so before anyone thinks I'm trying to counter-troll the West know that I hav...

Inspired by the "On Today's Date - 1998 - Arkansas" Thread I thought this would be cool to do. Where was your program 10 years ago on 11/14/03, what about 11/14/93?

Well I've seen a few on here say that Clowney has hurt his draft stock pretty severely because of his lack of production and effort this year in comparison to his first two years.

[quote]If USC, Missouri and Georgia finish in a three-way tie for first place, the first tie-breaker is head-to-head competition among the three teams. Well, each team is 1-1 against the other two foes, so the league would go to the second tiebreaker - divisional record.

Thought it would be interesting to look at this program. It's one I really don't have a lot of knowledge about so just wanted to see if the MSB could provide some answers.
Colorado has a respectable amount of history behind it but really hasn't done much since the turn of the century.

Well for those who saw SC and Mizzou actually play for a trophy because both teams play in Columbia. However the schools are far away and they only played twice before Mizzou joined the SEC, both in bowl games.
However given the number of SC bragging threads and the Mizzou butthurt threads are we...

Everytime someone knocks when I'm in the bathroom I tend to give them a grumbled half-coherent "occupied", usually because I'm distracted by trying to accomplish other task.
However if I knock while someone else is in there I've received a variety of answers from a simple "Hey!" or a "Yeah!" or j...

UT and UF have been in the same conference for over 100 years but have only played each other 43 times. 20 of which were required over the last 20 years due to the creation of SEC divisions. Throughout this series there have been big 7, 9, and 14 year gaps without playing each other.

Just wondering if there has been chatter about this among the UGA circles.

- Had a successful onside kick vs us but also botched a punt that allowed us to get back into the game after being down by 14 or...

2) UGAs backfield. Pret...
