We never play USC well. I'd say we lose by 10-14 points.

I think we win, but not by a lot. When was the last time we blew out a quality opponent? I also think that Bennett will have a good game since we haven't shown a propensity to double and triple cover receivers, and I don't think that EB can be stopped one-on-one.

(I'm not complaining about our pass defense, we're obviously performing well -- just pointing out that while Nix/Cooper use multiple looks, they don't seem to favor selling out to stop one particular receiver).

Very pessimistic about this game...we cannot overlook Vanderbilt.

Agreed. After last week's failure to blow out UNC when we had the chance, I don't think Spurrier will blow out anybody for the rest of the year. This one will be close, USC wins at the end.

And thats b/c they pulled the starters at the end of the 1st quarter.

No doubt, Carolina is a very good team but I don't believe at this time they are able to turn it up to that next level. They can every game left on there schedule but i thing they will all be game decided in the 4th quarter. However, as Smelley grows so will this team.

I will never pick Vandy to beat USC again until we actually SHOW UP in one of the games vs. them.

USC - 21

Yeah, we always used to say USC was a toss up. It's not. USC owns us...and will continue to.

We'll jump out to a big lead in the first half and feel really good about ourselves, our 3rd quarter will inevitably suck, and we'll do just enough in the 4th to get the W.

SC- 34

By throwing a cheap shot and getting himself kicked out of the game?


Did Renaldo ever lose to Vandy? maybe what, once?

Actually Balkman threw the 1st punch, actually a smack. Then Smith proceeded to pounce on him and make him look like the little B*tch he is. They both were ejected. And yes Smith did enjoy more than 1 win against the gamecocks.

I didn't ask about Smith, I asked about Balkman, the "little b*tch" was 4-2 against Vandy and is now in the NBA - what about Corey;)

You should have seen this place after the game...Me, Chuck, and Pateac had some fun after that :rotf:

Man, Corey played for the Globetrotters after college, so I know his winning % was about .800 points higher than Balkman's team :rotf:

I can't decide if I liked the aftermath of the Stallings/Noah scuffle or the Smith/Balkman ordeal better.

Yea smith is a globetrotter. Isn't Balkman out for the year with an injury? I always loved the intensity he brought to the court although I could never pull for him after that incident.

I wonder how many sweet 16's Balkman played in?

govandy0620
10-15-2007, 05:04 PM
Balkman was cool player...always one that I hated going against. I couldn't stand Dave Odom or USC for the longest time after that though. The best was a year later when Balkman came back to Memorial. I think he had like 2 points in that game because every time he touched it the crowd went crazy.

The Vandy/USC match up will probably be a good one. I would like to see what kind of cover we will use on EB. I will say USC wins by 7.

govandy0620
10-15-2007, 07:39 PM
Ya'll will win by more than 7...we never play ya'll close...this year won't be any different, especially after a heart breaking loss to UGA.

ConwayGamecock

Another possible scenario:

Blake Mitchell - the #15 best QB in the land in '06 - comes in for an inefficient Smelley, and rallies the troops to 3 quick TD's in the last 2:18 of regulation to win 24-21

Dollar Theater
10-16-2007, 03:54 PM
Another possible scenario:

Smelley is hot and leads USC to a 21-3 lead. Mitchell is brought in because he was promised time. He sits in the pocket like a statue. Vanderbilt comes back and makes it 21-20. Smelley comes back in to hand the ball off 3 times and punt over and over. Hail mary falls short. USC wins 21-20.

Here's my thoughts. This game really scares me. For one, South Carolina is the biggest thorn to Vandy. Other than Cutler's senior year when we lost 14-7 @ USC, S. Carolina seems to dominate us.

SCs defense scares me on paper. Third in the nation i believe in YPG maybe? Our offense has gone stale. Boyd always seems to have a field day on us. If we can control him, maaaybe our defense can keep it close.

Heres the X factor. Vandy always comes out and plays when no one gives them a shot to win. This is that game. No offense to SC but they are overrated at 6. With all the upsets this season has seen to top ranked teams, it would make perfect sense for Vandy to win this one. Thats what I'm gonna hope for this weekend.

SCfan804
10-17-2007, 07:39 AM
People say we're overrated at 6, and in any other year I'd agree completely. But if you look at the teams around us this year.... who deserves to be ranked ahead of us? You could make an argument for UK, but we beat them head to head. Rutgers? Cincinatti? 2 loss WVU? Virginia Tech?

ConwayGamecock
10-17-2007, 03:26 PM
South Carolina holds a 13-2 series record with Vanderbilt since joining the SEC. The two losses to Vandy came in '98 and '99, when USC went a combined 1-21, thanks to Fat Brad. Vandy beat us 17-14 in '98, and 11-10 in '99. The other 13 wins, USC out-scored Vandy 400-180. Vandy does have a solid defense that will cause the Gamecocks some troubles, and if we were playing in Nashville, I would be very concerned. But otherwise, we should be fine....

Vandy played pretty decent against UGA, they will give SC a good game. But SC well pull away in the 2nd half.
