    Hi guys, Some of you noticed that Henry haven't been much online lately that's because doctors recently discovered that he has a lump on his kidney and he will need to undergo an operation to extirpate it next week, Thursday. Let's hope and pray for him that the operation will go well and that there will be no complications and he will have a fast recovery to be able to return back to the GCF community. Badcock and TaySC will take his place on keeping things tidy around until he will be back. Have a great evening!

    Gamecocks picked to finish 11th in SEC; Silva makes All-Conference First Team (AUDIO) OCTOBER 17, 2018 Gamecocks HC Frank Martin addresses the media at SEC Media Days (Southeastern Conference) The Southeastern Conference media does not expect a significant jump-off for the South Carolina Gamecocks, projecting them for an 11th place finish out of 14 teams in the SEC. The media picked the Gamecocks to finish in the exact position they ended last year, 11th place, after going 17-16 overall and 7-11 in the SEC. Kentucky was picked to finish as the 2018-19 SEC Champion, with last year’s champion, Auburn, selected third. Media-projected SEC order of finish Kentucky Tennessee Auburn Mississippi State Florida LSU Alabama Vanderbilt Missouri Arkansas South Carolina Texas A&M Georgia Ole Miss South Carolina senior forward Chris Silva, last-season’s SEC co-defensive player of the year, was a first team selection to the preseason All-SEC first team. Joining Silva were, Arkansas’ Daniel Gafford, Kentucky’s Reid Travis, LSU’s Tremont Waters and preseason player of the year, Grant Williams of Tennessee.

    Gamecocks waiting on the word from Scott OCTOBER 12, 2018 BY PHIL KORNBLUT LINK: SPORTSTALK Donta Scott 6-6 Donta Scott of Philadelphia has been one of USC’s top targets for over a year. Scott is ranked 141st nationally by Rivals and USC recruiter Perry Clark has been the front man for the Gamecocks recruiting efforts. They’ll learn Sunday or Monday if those efforts paid off. Scott took official visits to USC, La Salle, Temple, Seton Hall and Maryland. The USC visit last weekend was not his first to see the Gamecocks. He was in the house last November when the Gamecocks opened the season at Wofford’s new arena and then came down to Columbia for the weekend. “Oh, he loves South Carolina,” said Howard Hudson, coach of Scott’s AAU team, the Philly Pride. “He loved it because the coaches and everybody in this were just treating treating him well.” Scott saw the Gamecocks practice last year on his visit and got another look inside the program last weekend. “You know, a lot of people were saying Frank was tough and he watched one of the practices,” Hudson said. “I asked him how was practice, and we watched it last year, so he knew kind of what what it was about, and he said it was not a problem. Scott has not yet made his decision and all five schools he visited are still in it. This weekend will be used for decision making with an announcement Sunday or Monday according to Hudson. “South Carolina and Maryland really stood out,” he said. “Comfortable around the players and comfortable around the coaches. Perry did a real good job for South Carolina. He’s been talking to Donta for over a year and a half.” Hudson said Maryland was in Tuesday for a final visit with Scott. USC coaches had their in-home visit last week. As for what will be deciding factors, Hudson sees three. “The coaches, the team’s playing style and the academic support for him.” Scott attends the same school in Philadelphia from where the Gamecocks recruited guard David Beatty. USC women’s coach Dawn Staley, who is a native of Philadelphia, also talked with Scott on his official visit.

    An injury ended one Gamecock’s senior season, but he’s looking to get another October 09, 2018 THE STATE Caleb Kinlaw has come through a lot in his college career. He’s been at three colleges across five years. Once coaches tried to move him to defense. This August, a torn knee ligament seemed to end his career prematurely. But he might have a chance at another season in Garnet and Black. The running back from Goose Creek tweeted Monday night he’ll seek a sixth year of eligibility. He was a valuable special teamer and a No. 5 tailback last season. Kinlaw redshirted his first college season and then played a small role in 2015 at Wisconsin. He left that school, spent 2016 in junior college fighting through injuries and then walked on at USC. He had 47 yards against Wofford deep in a blowout and played 12 games of special teams. Out of high school, Kinlaw was a three-star recruit and ran for 4,186 yards, averaging 8.9 yards per carry on a series of strong Goose Creek teams.

    After rough year, Frank Martin in a ‘better place’ with USC in this part of the game Oct. 09, 2018 THE STATE A.J. Lawson had a powerful one-hander. Hassani Gravett rocked the rim after a glass-kissing dish from Tre Campbell. And Chris Silva stayed true to form with a strong finish to an alley-oop. The above describes some notable dunks from South Carolina’s “Gamecock Tip-Off” event held last Friday at Colonial Life Arena. The below describes the night’s best layup. Frank Martin, playing a Family Feud-style game against Dawn Staley, correctly answered a question at midcourt, grabbed the basketball and dribbled cautiously – “That’s the most running I’ve done in a long time,” he said – to one end of the floor. Before his shot attempt, he glanced over to the USC bench and noticed a line of smiles. “I figured Chris was over there saying something,” Martin said. “And I saw Hassani’s face and I said, ‘Let me imitate him.’” In a move Martin reports is something he’s seen every day throughout Gravett’s career, the seventh-year Carolina coach put his left hand on the back of his head while banking home the layup with his right. Laughter ensued. The University of South Carolina basketball coach Frank Martin makes a goofy layup during a tip-off event at the Colonial Life Arena. 10/5/18 “I’m just happy it went in,” Martin said, “or I never would have heard the end of it.” By a certain measure, this 2018-19 team is one of the most experienced Martin’s had since coming to Columbia from Kansas State in March 2012. Gravett is one of five returning Carolina players – joining Silva, Maik Kotsar, Justin Minaya and Evan Hinson – to start at least 50 percent of last season’s games. The Gamecocks last had those numbers entering 2014-15 when Sindarius Thornwell, Demetrius Henry, Mindaugas Kacinas, Duane Notice and Michael Carrera were all back after a combined 132 starts the previous year. Such familiarity not only allows Martin to perform perfect imitations of players like Gravett, it has him pleased with something he felt the Gamecocks struggled with all last winter. “I was never really happy with our leadership last year,” Martin said. “It doesn’t mean that they were bad, I just wasn’t happy with how it was being handled. “And these two guys (Gravett and Silva) here, Maik, Justin, Felipe (Haase), that nucleus of guys that played a lot of minutes for us last year, they’re in a much better place right now. As players, as people. I’m more comfortable with who they are. For people to lead, they got to be comfortable with who they are first. And so they’re doing a better job.” Silva, as both he and Martin admitted on several occasions, tried to take on a captain’s role last season, but it didn’t produce the results either wanted. The Gamecocks, a year after making the Final Four, finished 17-16 and missed on the postseason altogether. Off their 12 losses in SEC play, seven came by seven points or fewer. “Last year, I was accepting a new role,” said Silva, a senior and reigning SEC co-defensive player of the year. “So my leadership role, my experience was a little bit low. I didn’t really know what to do. I was feeling confused or overwhelmed. I was just trying to go to (Martin) and trying to learn as much as possible. … I was teaching guys while trying to be on top myself. “Everybody, the returners are in a much better place. So I know I’m not the only one trying to lead the team. We’re having fun at practice, practicing hard, trying to help the young guys. We’re just following the leadership of Coach.” This year’s vets are being blended with seven new faces, including five freshmen and Campbell, a graduate transfer. Less than a month before the season opener, Martin is satisfied with the progress. “We’re way ahead of where I thought we’d be,” Martin said. “We’re way ahead, not even close. The returning guys have been great.”

    ***South Carolina vs Kentucky*** South Carolina football will add a little garnet to lastweek’s all-white look. Gamecocks Set to Face Nationally-Ranked Kentucky SEC Network to Televise Sept. 29 Game in Lexington Sept. 28, 2018 GCF Staff Report South Carolina hits the road again for a tilt against the Kentucky Wildcats aiming to break a four-game skid. Here’s what you need to know about the game: Game info Who: South Carolina (2-1, 1-1 SEC) at Kentucky (4-0, 2-0) When: 7:30 p.m. Saturday Where: Kroger Field (67,606) Series history: South Carolina leads 17-11-1. The Gamecocks have lost four in a row, none by more than 10 points. TV: SEC Network (Tom Hart, play-by-play; Jordan Rodgers, analysis; Cole Cubelic, sideline) Radio: 107.5 FM (Todd Ellis, play-by-play; Tommy Suggs, analysis; Langston Moore, sideline) ... See all the radio affiliates around the state here. Satellite radio: Sirius 108/XM 190 Line: Kentucky by 1 1/2 Weather: Mostly clear, with a low around 52. Temperature around 65 degrees at kickoff, 60 by the end of the game. Northeast winds of 6 mph. Chance of precipitation below 5 percent. What’s at stake The Gamecocks have a streak that’s been sticking in the craw for many outside the program. The four losses in a row all had different contexts, but they’ve all been problematic. This could also have a decisive impact on South Carolina’s place in the SEC East. At the moment, the Wildcats might well be the second-best team behind Georgia. A South Carolina win, and USC moves into good position there. Kentucky is aiming for its best start in more than a decade. The Wildcats are ranked for the first time since 2007, and a win against a solid Gamecocks team would raise their profiles further. South Carolina players to watch 1. USC quarterback Jake Bentley had an odd and disappointing showing against Kentucky last season. After an explosive start, the offense went three-and-out four times and only managed 13 points, despite his season-high 304 passing yards. This year, he’s got 780 passing yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions in three games. 2. Gamecocks tailback Rico Dowdle is the consistent bell cow of the ground game, and USC will be looking to make up for some things after last year’s meeting. The Gamecocks only ran for 54 yards on 20 carries, and Dowdle got stonewalled on the goal line in a big moment. This year, Dowdle has 235 yards on 5.6 yards per carry, but Kentucky just shut down Mississippi State’s prolific ground game. 3. Senior Bryson Allen-Williams will almost assuredly get tested considering he’s only 230 pounds and manning USC’s Buck defensive end position. The Wildcats’ Benny Snell-centric downhill running game will likely attack him and put pressure on the likes of linebackers T.J. Brunson, Sherrod Greene and Daniel Fennell. For the season, Allen-Williams, who was knocked out for 2017 against the Wildcats last fall, had 12 tackles, four for loss, with a sack and a pair of hurries this season. Kentucky players to watch 1. Kentucky running back Benny Snell has started this season looking like the SEC’s best at his position. He’s averaging 135 yards a game after another 165 yards and four touchdowns against Mississippi State. The junior has run for 175 yards and three scores in two career games against the Gamecocks. 2. Not lost in Snell’s performance Saturday, the Wildcat defense limited a previously electric Mississippi State offense to over 380 yards and 40 points below its season averages. Linebacker Josh Allen is the unit’s ringleader. After two tackles for loss, a sack, quarterback hurry and pass breakup against the Bulldogs, the All-American candidate told reporters, “I felt like they couldn’t block me.” 3. UK quarterback Terry Wilson was one of the most coveted junior college prospects on the market this past recruiting cycle. The January enrollee won’t wow you with passing numbers (Jake Bentley has thrown for 317 more yards than Wilson in one less game), but he’s enough of a running threat to take some attention off Snell. Wilson is second in the SEC among QBs with 241 yards. YOU ARE LOOKING LIVE: The South Carolina Gamecocks (2-1, 1-1 SEC) play another SEC Eastern Division road game this week when they travel to Lexington, Ky., to face the No. 17/17 Kentucky Wildcats (4-0, 2-0 SEC). Game time is set for 7:30 pm ET from Kroger Field (61,000). TV COVERAGE: SEC Network has the telecast for this week's contest. Tom Hart will handle the play-by-play with Jordan Rodgers serving as the analyst. Cole Cubelic will work the sidelines. A HISTORY LESSON: 2018 marks the 125th season of intercollegiate football at South Carolina. It is the 112th-consecutive year in which South Carolina has competed on the gridiron. The University did not field a team in either 1893 or 1906. Carolina owns an all-time record of 603-574-44. SEC HISTORY: The South Carolina Gamecocks are in their 27th year in the Southeastern Conference. Carolina and Arkansas joined the league prior to the 1992 campaign. The Gamecocks earned their lone SEC Eastern Division title in 2010. The Gamecocks are 91-118-1 (.436) all-time in SEC regular-season play, but are 36-30 (.545) in conference action since the start of the 2010 season. With a 5-3 mark and sole possession of second place in the SEC East in 2017, the Gamecocks won five or more conference games for just the eighth time in 26 years since joining the SEC. CAROLINA VS. KENTUCKY: This is the 30th meeting between the Gamecocks and Wildcats in a series that dates back to 1937. Carolina leads the all-time series 17-11-1, including a 9-6 advantage in Lexington. The teams played just three times (1937, 1978 and 1981) before Carolina joined the SEC for the 1992 season. Since then, they have met every year. Since joining the SEC, the Gamecocks own a 16-10 record against UK, including wins in 13 of the 18 meetings in this century, but the Wildcats have won each of the last four contests, their longest winning streak in the series. POLL CATS: This is the first time South Carolina will face an undefeated and ranked Kentucky team since 2007. The 11th-ranked Gamecocks defeated No. 8 Kentucky by a 38-23 score in Columbia on Oct. 4, 2007. Eric Norwood tied an NCAA record with two fumble recoveries for touchdowns, earning National Defensive Player of the Week honors. THE LAST TIME THEY MET: Benny Snell rushed for 102 yards and two TDs and the Wildcat defense held Carolina to just one score over the final 59:13 as Kentucky upended the Gamecocks by a 23-13 score in Columbia on Sept. 16, 2017. Jake Bentley connected with Deebo Samuel on a 68-yard scoring strike on the game's first play from scrimmage, but Carolina could muster just 290 yards of offense the rest of the way. Bentley completed 24-of-36 passes for 304 yards and two scores and Samuel logged 122 yards on five catches before suffering a season-ending leg injury. THE LAST TIME THEY MET HERE: Benny Snell capped an 11-play, 65-yard drive with a one-yard touchdown plunge early in the fourth quarter to break a 10-10 tie, and Kentucky held on for a 17-10 win over South Carolina in Lexington on Sept. 24, 2016. The Gamecocks were limited to just 268 total yards of offense. Brandon McIlwain went the distance at quarterback, completing 15-of-30 passes for 177 yards. Kentucky rushed for 216 of their 351 total yards in the contest. THE LAST CAROLINA WIN: The 13th-ranked Gamecocks opened up a 27-7 lead, but the Wildcats made it interesting with 21 fourth-quarter points before falling by a 35-28 count in Columbia on Oct. 5, 2013. Mike Davis rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns and quarterback Connor Shaw added 312 yards of total offense, including 262 through the air on 17-of-20 passing. Damiere Byrd had one of the top days of his career, catching five passes for 94 yards, including a 62-yard TD catch on the first drive of the game. MUSCHAMP VS. THE CATS: South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp owns a 4-2 record against Kentucky. He was a perfect 4-0 against the Wildcats as the head coach at Florida, but has dropped both games as the Carolina head coach.
