It's been a great season, and it's been a frustrating season. Had Carolina found a way to beat Tennessee it could have been a special season. Had Carolina not held on against Vandy or Kentucky or not have Connor Shaw's miracle in Missouri, it could have been a disappointing season. It's a 10-2 season, and Carolina is headed to the Capital One Bowl.
The Gamecocks finished the regular season 9th in the BCS standing, and the BCS, collectively, takes 10 teams. It's disappointing to watch lesser ranked, undeserving teams go to BCS Bowls in the place of the Gamecocks. It's especially disappointing when Carolina has beaten some of those teams head to head. That disappointment us understandbale, but there seems to be some misunderstanding of why Carolina isn't in a BCS bowl. Here's why.no comments
