You could not have asked for a bigger game situation for South Carolina this season.
After becoming the darling of the national media and seemingly a national title contender, the Gamecocks dropped a close game to LSU that ended South Carolina's perfect record.
But all was not lost.
If South Carolina could go down to The Swamp and beat the Florida, the Gamecocks would be in prime position to win the SEC East and still have a chance to win the SEC Championship...
Florida crushed South Carolina 44-11.
All hope was most certainly lost...
Although I graded the team on Saturday during the game against the Gators, we will take a look now with some fresh, sober eyes how the offense and defense played against Florida.
