Read that title. Now read it again. Read it backwards.
Yes...I did mean to leave the East word out of it.
In 2011, South Carolina has the firepower to win the SEC. It's just science. There may be one or two teams in the SEC West this year that are better then South Carolina on paper, but the Gamecocks have a couple of X-factors that will not allow them to lose.
This team keeps getting better. The attitude is right, the work ethic is up to par thanks to some fantastic coaching and player leadership and the SEC East is still weak, maybe even weaker than last year, with Georgia possibly taking a step backwards before they take a giant leap forward in 2012.
Florida is the wild card, as most teams don't do particularly well the season that they install a completely new system and try to run a pro-style offense with tiny running backs.
South Carolina has been riding the fence for a while now. This is the seasons that they not only cross over to the other side of the fence, but they blow that sucker up.
