ATLANTA, Ga – An SEC head coach needs to win games, eventually, at some point, and Will Muschamp doesn’t.
So, what’s the goal in Colubmia? What’s the measuring stick? What is the South Carolina administration trying to accomplish?
8-4 would have been a good record v this particular schedule, but you are supposed to be getting the program to a point by the end of season 4 where YOU are the landmine on someone else’s schedule and that’s not the case.
And that 8-4 imagined record? In reality the Gamecocks have had four games they lost by at least 20 points. This is a bad product and while the overall talent level on the Gamecocks’ roster has improved, that’s only in comparison to the Gamecocks’ roster from before Will arrived.
That’s the toughest part here: the team is getting better, but losing ground. We’ve talked about that concept in the East regularly since Kirby arrived in Athens. So you need to decide what your actual goal is, because if “Slugging it out with the other five schools for 2nd place” is what you’re aiming for it’s time for a new target.
