"We’re only, what, 2-1 in the conference. Anything can happen," Spurrier said. "We’re not even halfway through the conference schedule yet. We know one big upset does not make a season. We’ve still got to prove ourselves every week."

Let's not get ahead of ourselves. This week's game against Kentucky will be a difficult one to win coming off of our Alabama high.

Week six's contenders and pretenders |

I'm always sort of waiting for the Gamecocks to implode around this time of the year. I can't tell you how many years the wicked USC of the East has started 5-1 or 6-2, only to fold like a towel down the stretch.

Since when are we "the wicked USC of the East?" I just don't get that, unless it's just a lazy literary reference - which is what it is.
