So the nerve of that " local talk radio" for bashing the lowly Gamecocks for their chant but they were an inch from an upset yeah what ever.

And if we beat Clemson the Natty would be for the state and conference. I'm From Mobile and I know AJ and his family personally when Bama won past ships it was not just for the state but we represented our conference just as well.
"An inch away", lol. The Chickens weren't dominant when they were in the ACC and not much has changed since.

Yes an inch ( or 6 points) away from upsetting the number 1 team in the country and beat the 2nd best team in the ACC.

There's a huge difference between being close and actually doing it. Our offense was in control of that game and it showed. The defense was pretty banged up and tired by that point, which showed up in the SC and NC games. If we did not have Watson, who can put the entire team on his back and carry the day, those teams might have had a chance. But as demonstrated in the Orange a Bowl, our defense is recovered and ready...

Hence why I said they were within an inch ( 6 points away) from knocking you guys out of the playoffs. And South Carolina was just as tired and beat up.

My reply regarding Clemson's 5 point lead on the lowly Gamecocks were directed toward the SEC chant And some local radio's foolish oppinion. And South Carolina was just as tired and beat up.

Actually, that radio guy's observation was pretty spot on with regard to that team in Columbia...

No it was an ignorant statement by an apparent ACC homer. Every team that played in a bowl chanted SEC even those with great conference records. So how does that make sense ?

I'm not an SEC hater but I am very familiar with the mindset of our in-state rival...

Let's be realistic, South Carolina was/is terrible this year. It doesn't matter how close they came to beating a good team(Clemson) they didn't and they suck. They lost to Kentucky, enough said.


Dominant in the ACC, how drunk are you? There are at least 7 teams in the ACC that are simply better than South Carolina (Including North Carolina, fluke game before they hit their stride).

Nah. Just watching hater fans from other conferences squirm, deflect, make excuses, minimize or flat out go AWOL is celebration enough.

Roll Tide.
