Offense: 8

Defense: 6

Punter, Kicker

Pros - The Ol' Ball Coach has done what couldn't be done... build a winning program at South Carolina. Spurrier now has depth and playmakers to work with. Mike Davis is one of, if not, the top running backs in the SEC, and he will have a solid line to run behind. It's also a pro that QB Dylan Thompson gained a ton of experience over the past couple of seasons.

Cons - It's hard to replace the number one overall draft pick, Jadeveon Clowney, and not feel some sort of impact. The Gamecocks also have to replace playmakers Connor Shaw and Bruce Ellington.

Breakdown:

Aug. 28th vs. Texas A&M - Win

Sept. 6th vs. East Carolina - Win

Sept. 13th vs. Georgia - Swing Game

Sept. 20th at Vanderbilt - Win

Sept. 27th vs. Missouri - Win

Oct. 4th at Kentucky - Win

Oct. 18th vs. Furman - Win

Oct. 25th at Auburn - Swing Game

Nov. 1st vs. Tennessee - Win

Nov. 15th at Florida - Win

Nov. 22nd vs. South Alabama - Win

Nov. 29th at Clemson - Win

Last season, the Gamecocks won 11 games, and I think they're inline to do it again. The Gamecocks will kickoff the college football season with a win over a rebuilding Texas A&M. Then on September 13th it's the Georgia game in what I think will decide the east. Beat Georgia and don't slip-up against Tennessee again, and the Gamecocks could be heading into Atlanta with College Football Playoffs on their minds.
