Buckshots: 2011 Gamecock Flashback

This series of audio blog posts recapping every season since 1987 were originally posted prior to the 2013 season and are sponsored by our friends at Blue Moon Disk.

After a long-awaited breakthrough year in 2010, the question for the 2011 Gamecock football team was whether it could match or surpass the previous team’s accomplishments.

Despite falling short of an SEC East title, the 2011 team became the first ever USC squad to win 11 games in a season. They also gave us many exciting moments, including the greatest special teams play in the history of the program, and win streaks over Georgia and previously (seemingly) unbeatable rivals Florida and Tennessee.

A season-ending knee injury to Marcus Lattimore put a damper on the season, but with victories over Clemson and Nebraska to close things out, we finished with our first top 10 finish ever.

  1. We could have had it all…good song choice.

    I do remember going into that season thinking we were definitely going to compete for the SEC again. It still ended up being a great season, but we lost some key players that most of us thought were necessary. A good thing from that season is we all saw that we could win and win big without lattimore/garcia. Just like last year we saw that we could win without shaw/lattimore.

    It’s a nice feeling going into a game not being completely dependent on a select few.
