I don't want to see mega 16 team conference's, but if we had to I would want OU and Texas.  

I think Texas may go independent before joining the SEC.  There is no way the SEC would allow them to have their own network.

Here is a write up by our local paper The State:


BY JOSH KENDALL

BEST CASE
Sophomore Connor Mitch is the real deal The 6-foot-3 sophomore QB has all the right pedigree. He threw for 12,078 yards in high school and was recruited by Alabama, LSU and Auburn among others. What he doesn’t have is experience. He completed two of his six passes in mop-up duty last year.
Pharoh Cooper is a Heisman Trophy contender The junior wide receiver has the ability. He’ll need to do something crazy in the first two or three games, and he’ll need to make some big plays in the return game and at quarterback. The addition of Lorenzo Nunez might hurt him in this regard if Nunez takes over the Wildcat quarterback spot.
The new defensive linemen contribute immediately Specifically, three of the seven newcomers need to be able to play regularly. End Marquavius Lewis (6-3, 266 pounds) will start right away and looks like an immediate upgrade. Dexter Wideman, Dante Sawyer, Ulric Jones, Shameik Blackshear, Devante Covington and Quandeski Whitlow give the coaching staff plenty of new faces to evaluate.
The Gamecocks are 4-0 headed to Columbia, Mo., on Oct. 3 That will mean South Carolina is 2-0 in the SEC with a win over preseason favorite Georgia. It also will mean some much-needed confidence for a team that lacked it at points last season.
David Williams has a breakout season Williams – a 6-1, 216-pound sophomore – has the confidence to be a standout tailback in the SEC. We’ll see if he has the game. If he can be a difference-maker at tailback and complement the solid Brandon Wilds, the Gamecocks ground game will be fine.

WORST CASE
North Carolina wins on Sept. 3 South Carolina has won five of the past six games in this rivalry, and last year’s Tar Heels looked like little threat to change that. North Carolina was 6-7 and gave up 40 or more points eight times. The Heels have hired Gene Chizik to run the defense, and if they upset the Gamecocks, those confidence issues will return in a hurry.
The quarterback position is unsettled If Mitch can’t win and keep the job, and it becomes a revolving door at quarterback, that will put more pressure on a rebuilding defense. Perry Orth, Michael Scarnecchia and Nunez are the other options at quarterback.
Cooper gets hurt There’s one proven playmaker on offense, and it’s Cooper. If he’s not in the lineup, things get harder for everybody on offense. Mitch won’t have a proven weapon to throw to; the running game will have little complement, and Deebo Samuel will have to be a No. 1 receiver as a freshman.
The linebackers and secondary aren’t that good The bulk of last year’s defensive struggles were blamed on the defensive line, which didn’t allow improving linebackers and defensive backs a chance to do much. If the defensive line improves and it turns out the linebackers and defensive backs weren’t that good, it won’t help much.
Steve Spurrier retires If the Gamecocks lose three more games in the fourth quarter, Spurrier might decide he’s had enough. No one in garnet and black wants to think about that eventuality, but everyone knows it’s coming one day.

Best Case:

The think as long as our oline is good our Mitch will be good enough.

While I think Cooper is one of the best players in the SEC I don't see him as a legit Heisman contenders.   He is a WR and we aren't going to have that kind of season.

I think out Dline will be much better.  The new talent is legit.  But anything will be better than last year.

Gamecocks will not be 4-0 going into Mizzuo.   I think we will be the 3-1/  My guess is a loss to UGA.

I think David Williams will be a very solid to great SEC back.  Next year is his year, but he will be splitting carries Brandon Wilds.  So his numbers may be good, but not great.

Worst Case:

We would have to lose that game against UNC more than they beat us.  Is it possible?  After last season, anything is possible, but I think we win it.

If our oline struggles then so will our QBs.  Mitchell is the best QB on roster.  Although word is true freshman 4* Nunez has been impressive.  If it is a QB battle it is more likely Mitchell isn't getting it done, which is not a good thing.

The only real way our LBs and DBs struggle is if our dline doesn't get pressure.  

There aren't really any around the program that believe SOS is leaving after this year, not matter what.
