Debate: 2012 Gamecocks Different Than Underachievers of Recent Years?

Are the 2012 Gamecocks, currently ranked #3 in the polls, different than the teams of the past who were destined to drop a game on the big stage? What makes this year squad more apt to handle the pressure? Has coach Spurrier shown a particular ability to lead this years team, or does that responsibility fall on the captains?


The 2012 Gamecocks have looked exceedingly strong so far, let's debate why they are, or aren't, inclined to continue their success throughout the rest of the season. Feel free to throw in your thoughts on past recruiting, leadership, fan/community support, coaching decisions, schedule strength, and more, as we talk about the hottest riser in college football, the South Carolina Gamecocks.
