In a recent article, I predicted the South Carolina Gamecocks to go 12-0 in 2013. As expected, shouts of delusion and "homerism" came in to play.
That's OK. I'm OK with the fact that you use history as an indicator for the present and can't see the forest through the trees.
For those who have followed my writing over the years, they know that I'm pretty even keeled when it comes to predicting the Gamecocks. This year, however, there are many reasons to honestly believe that 12-0 isn't some wildly fantastical dream.
Yes, it will be difficult. Yes, the percentages are not in the Gamecocks' favor. Injuries and insane situations can occur at any moment changing the course of the season. A dream season can turn into a nightmare quickly. Just ask Southern Cal last year.
But with all that said... it can still happen.
