A Quick Game of "What if?"

Hey guys,

I wandered over here from my home at Rock M Nation, where recently, my colleague The Boy further examined the implications and ramifications of Missouri's comeback against South Carolina in the 2005 Independence Bowl.

The win was obviously a HUGE turning point for the Missouri program, as detailed in The Boy's post. The win bought Pinkel extra time, time he used to build around Chase Daniel and finally push Mizzou into the top slot in the Big 12 North.

This much we know about what the win did for Mizzou, but I come over to GaBA to ask Gamecock fans exactly how that one evening in Shreveport affected your program. Where do you all think South Carolina's program would be right now if they'd gone on to stomp Mizzou in that game? Would SC have used that game to launch bigger and better things like Mizzou did?

I appreciate any input you guys have from a Garnet and Black viewpoint.
