Has Steve Spurrier delivered as promised, or do his Gamecocks consistently underachieve? South Carolina's 28 victories over the past four seasons ties the 1987-90 Gamecocks for the best four-year period in team history, but Spurrier's teams have faded down the stretch. In 2007, South Carolina was 6-1 and No. 6 in the country, then lost its last five. In 2008, the Gamecocks raced to a 7-3 record before dropping their last three. In 2009, South Carolina started 6-2 and finished 7-6, losing four of its last five, including a 20-7 setback to Connecticut in the Papajohns.com Bowl. Spurrier, 65, acknowledges the program is not where he wants it. "Our fans remember the UConn game and I remember the UConn game and we weren't very good. Don't tell us to forget because we're not going to forget it," he said. "We're going to try our best to never, ever have a performance like that again."
As a run-up to the start of the season, the Wiz will display one poster each day until our supply is exhausted.
Then we turn it over to readers, who will vote on the poster of the year. In the meantime, send your team's poster schedule to jayzuma (at) gmail.com.
Last year, the site displayed 69 posters. South Carolina is poster No. 41 for 2010. Thanks to Eric!
