Solid article Matt…interesting.
I may be in the minority, but I just don’t see Shaw as a top tier SEC QB. He has his moments running the ball and will have them again in 2012…but at the end of the day I do not think he is good enough to get South Carolina to the title game.
He was dreadful in the big loss to Arkansas last season…and lets not pretend Arkansas has a good defense. He threw for only 128 yards and had an interception with no TD passes in that game…and ran for just 24 yards.
He losses Alshon Jeffery, as you mentioned, so that won’t help either. Does anyone think Ace Sanders is a true #1 SEC WR?
Gamecocks better hope Lattimore stays healthy (which hasn’t ever happened) or this could be a letdown season in my mind. But we will see how it plays out…Spurrier may surprise me.
