Some would. But I believe most would not. They would want to win with more points.

Do I think fans would be happy if USC wins every game?? Yeah, yeah I do. I donít care if itís 3-2, if SC is winning every game that stadium would be packed for the games. Thatís where our opinions are different. We both like points, but I donít think fans would NOT buy tickets because they donít score as much points as theyíd like even if the team is winning every game.

Maybe we should figure the whole ďwinningĒ thing out before we start worrying about winning by scoring 70 per game.

Well, I don't think we will ever get to have the fans prove which of us is correct!

I believe Muschamp is going to stay with a pro-style offense, and try to recruit to it, which means he isn't looking to have his QB be a runner. Muschamp doesn't even like playing more than one QB, so he isn't going to deliberately expose his QB to getting hurt being a runner. They want a balanced attack between running and passing. But it is very hard to be good at everything. Its easier to be good at one thing.

I would just love to see us have a running back that will run with heart. The closest one we got to that on the team that I have seen is AJ Turner. I don’t see him tapping his helmet wanting to come out after every decent run. In my opinion Rico is too soft. Give me someone that is tough enough to stay in and get some tough yards and plays with heart! That was Lattimore’s greatest attribute. Mix that in with his natural talent...thus why Marcus is arguably the best running back that has ever suited up in a Carolina uniform. If I was a coach and one of my backs tapps his helmet to come out his eyes better be rolled back in his head when he came to the sideline or else they wouldn’t see the field the rest of the game. Bottom line is our backs, so far as I have seen are too soft. Give us a tougher running back and you will see our whole offense improve in my opinion.

The Oline is pretty good this year, but one thing is for certain, we dont have a Hayden Hurst as an extra blocker to open up lanes for our rb's. I haven't seen our current TE's block anyone. and if they have, it sure isn't very noticeable.

We have got to start throwing the ball to the perimeter more. We hardly ever do it and that doesn't make a lick of sense given what we have at wide receiver. For whatever reason, we are hell bent on attacking the middle of the field almost exclusively. Throw more quick screens, tunnel and bubble screens. Get guys out of the box to make life easier on our offensive line.

I agree. Deebo is extremely physical. Get the ball in his hands behind the line, and he will find a way to get 5 yards. Shi is elusive and freaky quick. Get the ball in his hands behind the line, and enjoy the show.

And you're right. It will spread the defense out and require them to play less soft coverage, opening up the running game and/or downfield shots.

When we say that we need to get creative in the running game, this is what we're talking about.

Everybody else, take notes!

Christian Wilkins from Clemson (and that Boulware idiot) are exceptions to this. They would welcome it.

Personally, I'd be excited to win, no matter how the win comes.


As far as some fans, I am sure that if we beat say Clemson 7-3 and UGA 7-3 that everyone would be happy. Beating Coastal, TN and Wofford 7-3 would likely cause some serious complaints.
