Let's face it. It's much easier to write a piece entitled "Winners and Losers..." for a team that is 2-3 or 3-2 rather than 5-0. Nevertheless, the South Carolina Gamecocks are of the 5-0 variety and enjoyed a very successful September, setting the stage for an October that could put them in position to win their first SEC Championship.
But, even so, there are still successes and opportunities the Gamecocks possess through their first month of the season.
Come to think of it, I think those two words better than winners and losers. Especially in the circumstance of a team that is 5-0. So, for the sake of clarity, the winners will be referred to as successes and the losers will be referred to as opportunities.
Good, glad we got that out of the way.
So, now, let's look at the Successes and Opportunities from Gamecocks' First Month.
