Another thing about smack talk, it is hard to
However, I am about to break my rule, since I read the most awesomely hyperbolicly awesome thing ever about South Carolina's upcoming football season (h/t Blutarski). Apparently, back to back beatdowns in the Georgia Dome does nothing to curb the enthusiasm of the Gamecock faithful. South Carolina talks about winning four championships a season: the state championship (against Clemson), the SEC East, the SEC, and the National Championship. For those keeping score at home, they are 39 of 108 in the state championship, 1 for 18 at SEC East titles and 0 for everything else at the other two. In fact, in South Carolina's two 'championship' seasons, the 1969 ACC title year and 2010, they were a three loss team headed into the post season. They are 0-3 in the post season in those 'championship' years.
There is no doubt South Carolina is a favorite to win the SEC East, but if it does, it'll be as much because of the suckitude of the rest of the division as it will be due to the 'Cocks having the "scariest offense in the nation."
When South Carolina accomplishes more than beating Georgia and Florida in the same season, then it might be time to crow. Until then, winning the state championship and SEC East might make you hungry, but it won't make you accustomed to championships. Perhaps Gamecock fans should hope the standard being raised is winning a game, any game, in Atlanta before dreaming of more.
