Just got back from Nashville. Talked to a few fans also flying back, who clearly didn't enjoy the trip as much as they expected.
That loss just sucked the air out of the season for South Carolina. Yes, already, after two games. Oh, the season isn't over. But at the moment there's no sense that it's going anywhere.
The offense is flailing around, lacking any skill position stars. The best player, Kenny McKinley, has a hamstring injury that's never good for a receiver. The defense showed last night it's beatable. The special teams had a couple critical lapses. And it sure seems the Gamecocks were out-coached last night, especially after halftime.
How do you feel? After some time of reflection, do you feel any better about the Gamecocks, just as bad, or even worse?
