South Carolina beat Mississippi State in a game that will go down as a huge 2011 turning point... because of Marcus Lattimore going down, not the W.
How the team responds to his absence will go a long way in telling what type of program South Carolina has developed.
Leftover Hot Dog and myself did predict South Carolina to win. However, LHD once again moved his way closer to me after a poor start to his pick 'em challenge.
I predicted a score of 28-14 in favor of the Gamecocks, so I added 16 to my total.
LHD predicted the score to be 20-10, which means he saw 10 points added to his score.
Our guest, Jeremy Hillman, predicted SC to win 31-19, so he took a 24-point hit.
So as it stands:
1. Alex Roberts (6-1) +179
2. Leftover Hot Dog (6-1) +188
3. Guest Experts (5-2) +243

As always, it is great to be a Gamecock, and you can always fan me on Facebook!
