12. South Carolina

Steve Spurrier is finally displaying the rooster strut Gamecocks loyalists have expected since his 2005 arrival. The OBC's confidence stems from an equation of a 9-5 record+first-ever SEC East crown+No. 1 high school recruit Jadeveon Clowney+Marcus Lattimore carrying the football. But that beautiful math is in perpetual danger of being zeroed out by the nation's most unpredictable player. QB Stephen Garcia has the maddening ability to look at once brilliant (17-for-20, 3 TDs vs. Alabama), horrible (19-for-34, 3 INTs in Chick-fil-A Bowl vs. Florida State), and downright juvenile (two spring suspensions). Says Lattimore: "I'm not worried about him. None of us are. I know what I see in the huddle. He's my quarterback, and he's ready to go." -- Ryan McGee, ESPN The Magazine
