Had a lousy kickoff to the season as a South Carolina fan.Steve needs to get some defense before the next game but any hope for national is gone already.The A&M QB was better than Johnny (The Finger) Manzell and A&M is going to have a great year I believe.

Not so. Win the division, win the championship game and see what happens. Don’t you expect the SEC champ to be in the playoffs?
