    That's the difference in the game right there. If we score 2TDs instead of getting nothing twice its a tie game.
    I think it was more of what we couldnt do on offense than what Garcia and Spurrier did on our defense. The fact we were held under 100 yards rushing anyway you slice it with a Mac offense is probably the telltale sign of we are getting beat.

    Even if we give them back its USCe 117-64 in rushing yards. A very crappy day of running for us
    Yes it is, especially considering the studs we had in the backfield.

    If this has been brought up on the thread, I apologize ... But wasn't this the year that an absurd number of our SEC opponents had off weeks before they played us? As someone already stated, even after this loss we were a fake LSU field goal and what should have been a 5- or 6-touchdown halftime lead against Auburn from playing for another national championship. In East Lansing to this day, they still gather around fires and stare at their beers and discuss in muffled tones the atrocities we unleashed against Michigan State that year. I think the United Nations war crimes tribunal got involved.

    We had 6 scheduled teams coming off of a bye that year, USCe was one of them. The only team to give up their bye was Arkansas. The biggest issue was that in the two week prior to USCe was that we had a shootout in Fayettville, and a big time game vs Florida while USCe had time to lick their wounds from a game against auburn that they shouldve won.

They came in to Tuscaloosa, and truth be told, we played a very uninspired game especially on offense. Yet we ended up dominating because Florida was so mediocre. So the attitude issues were amplified going into Columbia. I think that team thought they were invincible. And... when you think about it... if it weren't for all the injuries they may well have beaten LSU and Auburn. Who knows what happens if that team finishes 11-1. They would have gotten a rematch with South Carolina in Atlanta, and probably drill them into the ground like Auburn did. Then they are playing Oregon in the NC game and probably kill them like they did Michigan State.

    So close, yet so far.
    Two weeks prior to losing to USC we were lucky to have beaten ARK (Bobby Petrino/Ryan Mallet). They were a good team but lost 3 times. Our 2010 team was an underachieving group and they all admit to it.

    Time for Bama to excise some demons from the past (2010 game)

    I realize, along with all of you, that the current Alabama football team doesnít remember the 2010 game. However, it does bring back bitter feelings to the fan base. I wonder if CNS will have much to say about it to the players. Even though the current group of Bama players are way better than the 2010 players one would have to be blind to not see the similarities. Highly ranked Bama team comes into their place and no one gave USCe a chance. Our running game/OL could be suspect. They have a young QB who could have a generational game against us. Not saying it will happen but I do see some similarities.

    Arkansas technically lost 2 games since the Ohio St game was vacated. But that was a Very very good Arkansas team, and possibly the best one since the 1970's. Their two regular season losses were to the defending National champs and the eventual national champs, and they gave both hell.

    I wouldn't doubt for one minute he hasn't told them about that game and what happened. I think the team has heard about it quite a bit, and since this is an SEC game, I think they respond better than in previous weeks. They know what is at stake

    The biggest reason(s) it leaves Bama fans with a bitter taste is that 1) Spurrier once again takes out a highly ranked Bama team and 2) it was one of the few games in which Bama was never in control of the game. Most Bama losses are games in which Bama loses control at a key point. Even the 2012 aTm game we regained control and were 1st and goal but squandered it away very late in the game. 2010 USCe we never had control and never really threathened to gain control. USCe was up by scores twice in the game. Its just one of those games in which Bama fans have a hard time using the common line of "Bama beat themselves"

    I was in Columbia that day and was miserable...we could not get them off the field. They kept throwing at our freshman DB -- and running up the middle to get key 1st downs. I am trying to delete it from my memory bank...but it keeps coming back...like many other key losses.

    I remember the game as it was during the same time I was visiting Ground Zero in NYC. GZ was outrageously heartbreaking. The game was icing on the cake for a bummer of a day.

    I supposedly had a 50-yard-line seat at that game, but my friend weirdly gave away his seats. Was bothered at first by what he did. Didn't last long.

    Here is a pretty good article that outlines that game from a South Carolina perspective, and also gives you a glimpse of their expectations this weekend


    https://www.postandcourier.com/sports/carolina/sapakoff-alabama-talk-harmful-for-gamecocks-delusional-fans/article_c7b8b95e-d3cb-11e9-9705-a3e03008808d.html


    But the arrival of No. 2 Alabama on the schedule means Delusional Week in Columbia, a time when fans reminisce about a joyful 35-21 upset so close yet so far away.It’s unhealthy to expect a repeat of the unexpected.Or brag about a win notched when most of the current players were in elementary school.It actually happened.Documentation exists.But it’s not as if aliens landed in Columbia nine football seasons ago, as would have to happen in 2019 to start production of a new SEC Network documentary “Miracle on George Rogers Boulevard.”That 2010 game was a very good team that won nine games and the SEC East having a charmed Columbia afternoon against another very good team that won 10 games but finished fourth in the SEC West.The 2019 game is national championship contender Alabama against a 1-1 Gamecock team that will have to scramble to earn a bowl bid.Alabama in 2010 eventually was exposed as not worthy of a No. 1 ranking.The Tide in 2019 features Nick Saban’s best-ever quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa.
    The 2010 game, most people think, was simply about wide receiver Alshon Jeffery winning hand-to-hand combat battles with Alabama’s Mark Barron, running back Marcus Lattimore fighting for 93 yards and two touchdowns and quarterback Stephen Garcia completing 17-of-20 passes on the best football day of his life.
    The real story was line play that allowed South Carolina to outrush Alabama, 110-36, while piling up seven sacks to just one sack for the Tide
