South Carolina Gamecocks Eliminated from SEC East Contention

James Franklin thought he was playing for the Gators today. He threw four interceptions straight into the bellies of Forida’s defenders, and looked lost whenever his team passed the fifty yard line.

Florida took advantage and, despite looking like a DII school when they had to start drives in their own territory, won 14-7.

That win means South Carolina has no shot to win the SEC East.

Should Georgia lose to Ole Miss or Auburn to end their SEC season, the Gators will win the SEC east.

The Gamecocks are still in contention for a Sugar Bowl birth, but LSU, Florida and Georgia would all have to lose, and Carolina would have to win out, before selections are made if Carolina is to be seriously considered for that game.

LSU takes on Alabama tonight and finishes the year against Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Arkansas. Florida still has to play two scrubs and Florida State, and UGA will finish the year against Ole Miss, Auburn some team ESPN calls Georgia South, and Georgia Tech. Again, either Florida or Georgia will also have to play Alabama or LSU in the SEC Championship, too.

The Gamecocks finish up things against Arkansas, Wofford and Clemson.
