    Gamecocks Division dark horse

    Division dark horse Could the South Carolina Gamecocks be Georgia’s biggest threat in the SEC East? With junior quarterback Jake Bentley and a experienced receiving corps, many think the Gamecocks could be the division’s No. 2 team. “Expectations are that under new offensive coordinator Bryan McClendon — a former Georgia player and assistant coach — the Gamecocks will be more dangerous offensively than last year, when they were very inconsistent,” Bill King of DawgNation wrote. “Plus, there’s this popular belief that Coach ‘Boom’s’ [Will Muschamp] defense will be improved from last year simply because he’s usually had good defenses in the past.” The Gamecocks host the Bulldogs on Sept. 8 at 3:30 p.m. ET in the featured SEC on CBS game for Week 2.

  4. SEC bylaw changes favor transfers, empower student-athletes June 01, 2018 DESTIN, Fla. — Student athletes were the big winners as the SEC meetings came to a close Friday after league presidents voted on key provisions. Most notably, grad transfers and players on teams facing postseason bans will be able to transfer in-conference and be eligible immediately. Previously, provisions were in place for those student-athletes to either be granted a release from the school or sit out a year. SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said the grad transfer-friendly bylaw change was passed by a “super majority” vote. Alabama coach Nick Saban was the most notable opponent to the new provision, taking a stance against what he repeatedly referred to as “free agency,” even though he later claimed his program stood to benefit. WATCH: Nick Saban makes the case to uphold grad transfer block in SEC at spring meetings Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt and athletic director Phillip Fulmer were among the first to publicly debate Saban’s stance on the issue, and several other football coaches and athletic directors fell in line. WATCH: Tennessee AD Phillip Fulmer reveals transfer take at SEC Spring Meetings The NCAA’s transfer working group will meet in Indianapolis on June 11 and is expected to present and approve a proposal which, according to an Associated Press report, is designed to “end the practice of schools and coaches blocking an athlete from transferring or dictating where an athlete can go.” Once that proposal is passed, the SEC’s new bylaw will take effect, Sankey essentially indicated. Further, the league’s bylaw involving serious misconduct — defined by the league as sexual assault, domestic violence, other forms of sexual violence, dating violence or stalking, or conduct of a nature that creates serious concern about the safety of others” — has been expanded to include prospects. Scholarships have not been available to student-athletes that have pled guilty or no contest to such acts, and now that will be expanded to include high school prospects. Here are three key bylaw changes/adjustments, with the SEC’s official rational: Graduate transfers can transfer in conference without sitting out a season SEC rationale statement: “The current [policy], which specified that a student-athlete who transfers from one member institution to another must serve a year-in-residence [irrespective of NCAA rules] prior to becoming eligible for competition at the second member institution, is applied uniformly to all transfers, with relief only being available through the established waiver process…. This proposal is therefore intended to either codify an exception for intra-conference graduate transfers consistent with recently approved waivers ….” Student-athletes in programs dealt postseason bans can transfer in-league with immediate eligibility SEC rationale statement: “…. Institutions that choose to operate outside the rules should not benefit financially from doing so. Similarly, student-athletes who choose to transfer should have the opportunity to be immediately eligible if an institution has been issued a postseason ban for actions and activity that is outside of the student-athlete’s control … “ Serious misconduct provision extended to high school prospects SEC rational statement: “This proposal will expand the scope and application of current conference serious misconduct legislation to including any incoming prospective student athlete and rather make clear that incidents of such conduct involving a currently enrolled student-athlete shall remain at the discretion of the institution.” Other rulings from SEC Spring Meetings: • Visiting prospects will now receive five complimentary tickets for home athletics events [down from 6] • Allow on-campus athletic evaluation of basketball prospects, in-line with the NCAA’s permissive legislation • Baseball teams will be allowed two fall practice against non-conference opponents • Softball and baseball increase, from 3 to 4, number of caches who may be employed and recruit off campus • SEC baseball has approved centralized replay, with officials in Birmingham available for reviews • No football staff members, coaching or otherwise, can be involved with football clubs involving prospects [7-on-7] • Artificial noise shall not be used from time center touches the ball [previously ‘took his place over ball’] Wrapup From SEC Spring Meetings SECCOUNTRY
  5. SEC AD: 'It's one of the biggest challenges we have in college athletics' May 31, 2018 DESTIN, FLA. In 2017, 15 college football assistants made more than $1 million a year and nine of them worked in the SEC. Since last season ended one of them, LSU defensive coordinator Dave Aranda, has gone over $2 million annually, and at least one more coach has joined the list thanks to a raise that will pay South Carolina defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson $1.2 million annually. “I think it’s one of the biggest challenges we have in college athletics is what our coaches are making,” Florida athletics director Scott Stricklin said this week at the SEC’s annual meetings. “They are in a market that allows them to enjoy those kinds of salaries, but I do think the optics of it are not helpful.” The Gamecocks' 10-person assistant coaching staff – Robinson, offensive coordinator Bryan McClendon ($650,000), offensive line coach Eric Wolford ($600,000), Lance Thompson ($550,000), quarterbacks coach Dan Werner ($500,000), special teams coordinator Coleman Hutzler ($475,000), running backs coach Bobby Bently ($400,000), linebackers and defensive ends coach Mike Peterson ($300,000), tight ends coach Pat Washington ($300,000) and special teams assistant Kyle Krantz ($125,000) – makes a total of $5.1 million. That total would have ranked fifth in the country last year but will not this year because of offseason raises at other schools and the addition of a 10th coach to every staff. “It’s what the market bears,” said Alabama athletics director Greg Byrne, whose assistant coaching staff made almost $6 million total last year. “We want to make sure for all of our sports we attract the best candidates for our jobs. Obviously, salaries are part of that. There’s always going to be debates about what you do as a program.” Stricklin is concerned about how that debate looks, though. Athletic departments have been able to argue that skyrocketing salaries for head coaches were worthwhile because of the exposure successful programs bring to universities, but it’s much harder to make that argument based on assistant coaches. “I’m appreciative of the job our coaches do, but the optics of that is very uncomfortable,” Stricklin said. SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said he doesn’t think that assistant coach salaries will continue to rise forever. “Well, where is it? I don’t know,” Sankey said. “It’s going to take campus oversight. There is an end. Where might it be? I’m not going to jump into that prediction.” THE STATE
  6. He rolled up to Williams-Brice to wave a Vols flag. Plenty of Gamecocks fired back May 30, 2018 Meet VolBandit. He's a Tennessee fan who drove by William-Brice Stadium and took it as a chance to wave his Volunteers flag, take a few photos. Then he took to social media to talk a little trash. Tennessee leads the all-time series in football against USC 25-9-2. The Vols dominated the series until 2005. South Carolina is 7-6 against Tennessee since then, and two of those USC losses came in overtime. The Gamecocks are 2-0 against the Vols under Will Muschamp, including a 15-9 win in Neyland Stadium last season. Gamecocks fans responded to VolBandit's antics quickly, forcefully and often with some creativity.

  7. Who could break out for South Carolina and the SEC in 2018 April 30, 2018 Some of the Southeastern Conference players who were impressive during spring workouts and could be impact players next season: ALABAMA DB Saivion Smith. The junior college transfer, a former five-star LSU signee, could make an immediate impact in a secondary short on experience. The Tide must replace its entire starting secondary, including unanimous All-American Minkah Fitzpatrick, plus a key reserve. ARKANSAS LB Randy Ramsey. The 6-foot-4, 227-pound Ramsey has shown flashes of All-SEC potential during his first three seasons at Arkansas, but he's also struggled with inconsistent stretches. Now entering his senior season, Ramsey had the best spring of his career under new coach Chad Morris and is expected to build on his 42-tackle performance last season. AUBURN DL Nick Coe. The versatile third-year sophomore is listed as a backup defensive end behind Marlon Davidson but could play multiple spots. The 6-foot-5, 270-pounder, who had two sacks last season, was the defensive MVP of Auburn's spring game with a sack for a safety. FLORIDA WR Van Jefferson. The 6-foot-2 receiver was the team's top playmaker during spring practice, running by cornerbacks, leaping over safeties and making quarterbacks Feleipe Franks and Kyle Trask look better than ever. Now, the Gators will wait and see if Jefferson will be eligible this fall. Jefferson and other former Mississippi teammates have petitioned the NCAA to play immediately following coach Hugh Freeze's ouster amid an NCAA investigation. GEORGIA RB D'Andre Swift. While playing behind seniors Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, Swift was Georgia's third-leading rusher with 618 yards and fourth on the team with 17 catches (more than Chubb and Michel combined) for 153 yards. He led the team with 88 yards rushing and a touchdown in an SEC championship game win over Auburn. KENTUCKY RB A.J. Rose. The Wildcats hope Rose can complement two-time, 1,000-yard rusher Benny Snell in the backfield next season. Rose, a redshirt sophomore, rushed just 15 times for 37 yards last season but showed big-play potential with 134 yards and three touchdowns in the spring game. LSU WR Justin Jefferson. The younger brother of former LSU QB Jordan Jefferson and DB Rickey Jefferson caught a 94-yard touchdown pass during the spring game and may have played himself into a bigger role next fall. OLE MISS LB Detric Bing-Dukes. Linebacker has been a big problem for Ole Miss the past few seasons and the Rebels are still searching for solutions. Coaches praised Bing-Dukes as a leader throughout the spring. The 6-foot-1, 254-pound senior had 24 tackles last season and will need to be much more productive next fall. MISSISSIPPI ST WR Austin Williams. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound Williams caught four passes for 61 yards and a touchdown during Mississippi State's spring game, capping off an impressive stretch of practices. The redshirt freshman could provide an immediate upgrade for the Bulldogs, who sometimes struggled to gain big chunks of yards through the air last season. MISSOURI WR Nate Brown. The senior has battled injuries since emerging as one of Missouri's top receiving threats as a sophomore during the 2015 season. However, the 6-foot-3, 210-pound Brown was healthy during the spring and showed the potential to become a top target for quarterback Drew Lock this fall. SOUTH CAROLINA RB Ty'son Williams. The North Carolina transfer debuted for South Carolina last fall, but often struggled to find running room. Still, he finished second on the team with 471 yards. The 6-foot Williams had a strong spring, an encouraging sign that he'll be able to improve on those numbers this fall. TENNESSEE DE Kyle Phillips. The former five-star recruit heads into his senior season with only three career sacks. Injuries limited him early in his career. He played all 12 games last season and made seven starts but had just 4 ½ tackles for loss and two sacks. But there's reason to believe the son of Tennessee State athletic director Teresa Phillips could deliver a breakthrough in his final season of eligibility with Tennessee's switch to a 3-4 scheme under new coach and former Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt. TEXAS A&M TE Jace Sternberger. The junior college transfer had eight catches for 147 yards and two touchdowns in the spring game. That kind of production would be a welcome change for the Aggies, who didn't get much production from the tight end spot last year. VANDBERBILT RBs Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Jamauri Wakefield. The Commodores and coach Derek Mason have to replace the school's all-time leading rusher in Ralph Webb. Luckily, he has some intriguing candidates for the job at what might be the deepest area on the team. Vaughn sat out last season as a transfer from Illinois, while Wakefield now is a sophomore.

    UT Pruitt has a lot to say

    Pruitt is letting his thoughts be known and not sugar coating it. Said many players flat out quit in the game. Called out the fans for not showing up, even though it was the 3rd largest attendance ever for a spring game. I can understand calling out some players who lost the 5-star heart ( lol thanks Butch) but hell hacking the fans without a win to your name yet as a coach may just have shortened his rope. Seems this a true rebuild and I hope we take advantage of this for many years to come.

  10. Silva earns All-SEC accolades from Legue coaches Junior forward led the Gamecocks with 14.8 points per game in league action March 06, 2018 COLUMBIA, S.C. - University of South Carolina junior forward Chris Silva was named the 2018 SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Year by league coaches on Tuesday. The postseason awards were announced in advance of this week’s SEC Tournament in St. Louis. Silva was also honored on the All-SEC First Team and the All-SEC Defensive Team. The postseason accolades are the first of his career. Silva was dominant in SEC play this season, leading the Gamecocks with 14.8 points and 7.8 rebounds, while he also averaged 1.3 blocks per game. His rebounds per game were fourth in the league, and he also ranked second in conference action with 3.7 offensive rebounds per outing. He tallied double-figures in 15 games against conference foes this season, while he pulled down eight or more rebounds nine times, and had double-digit rebounds five times, which resulted in five double-doubles in league action. Silva hit 118-of-154 free throws during league play this season, 76.6 percent from the line. He also matched a career high with 13 rebounds against Ole Miss in the league opener this season, and set a new career high for points with 27 in the home win over Vanderbilt before he matched the point total in the upset win over No. 18 Kentucky. Silva concluded the regular season with a 19-point, 11-rebound performance last Saturday at No. 14/15 Auburn. South Carolina has now had an All-SEC First-Team honoree from the league’s coaches in each of the last three seasons - 2016, Michael Carrera; 2017, Sindarius Thornwell, and Silva this season. Former Gamecock Sam Muldrow was also named the SEC Defensive Player of the Year in 2011. South Carolina is the No. 11 seed in this week’s SEC Tournament and will face 14th-seeded Ole Miss on Wednesday night in St. Louis. Tip time is scheduled for approximately 9:30 p.m. ET versus the Rebels, and the contest will be broadcast on the SEC Network with Tom Hart, Jon Sundvold and Molly McGrath on the call. Below is a complete listing of the 2018 SEC Coaches Postseason Awards: First Team All-SEC Jaylen Barford, Arkansas Chris Chiozza, Florida Yante Maten, Georgia Kevin Knox, Kentucky Kassius Robertson, Missouri Chris Silva, South Carolina Grant Williams, Tennessee Tyler Davis, Texas A&M Second Team All-SEC Collin Sexton, Alabama Daryl Macon, Arkansas Bryce Brown, Auburn Jared Harper, Auburn Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Kentucky Quinndary Weatherspoon, Mississippi State Admiral Schofield, Tennessee Jeff Roberson, Vanderbilt SEC All-Defensive Team Donta Hall, Alabama Anfernee McLemore, Auburn Chris Chiozza, Florida Chris Silva, South Carolina Robert Williams, Texas A&M SEC All-Freshman Team Collin Sexton, Alabama Daniel Gafford, Arkansas Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Kentucky Kevin Knox, Kentucky Tremont Waters, LSU Nick Weatherspoon, Mississippi State Jontay Porter, Missouri TJ Starks, Texas A&M SEC Coach of the Year Rick Barnes, Tennessee SEC Player of the Year Grant Williams, Tennessee SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year Juwan Parker, Georgia SEC Co-Sixth-Man of the Year Jontay Porter, Missouri Lamonté Turner, Tennessee SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Year Chris Silva, South Carolina Robert Williams, Texas A&M SEC Co-Freshman of the Year Collin Sexton, Alabama Kevin Knox, Kentucky
  11. MBB: 2018 SEC Tournament Bracket Revealed COLUMBIA, S.C. - South Carolina (16-15, 7-11 SEC) will be the No. 11 seed in next week’s 2018 SEC Tournament in St. Louis, Mo., and will face 14th-seeded Ole Miss (12-19, 5-13 SEC) on Wednesday night at approximately 9:30 p.m. ET, at the Scottrade Center. The matchup will be broadcast on the SEC Network with Tom Hart (play-by-play), Jon Sundvold (analyst) and Molly McGrath (sidelines) on the call. South Carolina and Ole Miss met in this season’s SEC opener in Oxford, with the Rebels posting a 74-69 victory at The Pavilion. Junior forward Chris Silva scored 21 and matched his career high with 13 rebounds, while graduate student guard Frank Booker added 21 points, including six 3-pointers. South Carolina owns an all-time record of 20-26 in the SEC Tournament and a 4-5 mark under the direction of head coach Frank Martin. The Gamecocks are 4-4 all-time in the Tournament versus Ole Miss, with Carolina posting a 60-58 win over the Rebels in the last meeting in the postseason event in 2015. The Gamecocks look for their first Tournament win since that victory over Ole Miss.
  12. Paul Finebaum on his dark-horse pick to win the SEC East Feb. 27, 2018 SEC Network TV/radio host Paul Finebaum is not going to jump out on any limbs when it comes to picking the favorites to win the 2018 SEC East and West championships. Like almost everybody else, he’s picking Georgia and Alabama, the two teams that met in the 2017 national championship game. If fact, Finebaum told SEC Country that he’ll never pick anybody other than Alabama to win the SEC West as long as Nick Saban is the coach of the Crimson Tide. But when asked about dark-horse picks, Finebaum picked the Gamecocks in the SEC East. “I think South Carolina would have to be considered a dark horse,” Finebaum said. “Maybe Florida if they can figure out the quarterback situation.” USC returns quarterback Jake Bentley and several talented receivers, including Deebo Samuel who missed most of last season with an injury. In the West, Finebaum said: “Maybe Mississippi State. But again, they have to play at Alabama.” Coach Will Muschamp’s Gamecocks open spring football practice on Wednesday.
  13. Which Gamecocks could end up on the All-SEC team in 2018 Feb. 12, 2018 The Gamecocks put three players on the 2017 All-SEC team. That trio is now gone. So which South Carolina players might find their way on the team for 2018? Here’s a few good candidates: Good chance Deebo Samuel, wide receiver If not for injury, he would’ve landed there last season. He’s a top-flight receiver (783 yards in 2016, 250 in three games last year), adds a dimension as a power runner (eight rushing TDs in past 13 games) and an explosive kick returner (scored in USC’s first two games). The only matter is health, after various maladies cost him part of his sophomore year and most of his junior season. His excellence and the balance around him make it less likely a Bryan Edwards or Shi Smith also could contend, unless Jake Bentley threw in the high 3,000-yard range. D.J. Wonnum, Buck They key will be building on a breakout sophomore year, but he’s got the ability to be an explosive pass rusher and disruptive presence. In 2017, he was tied for 10th in the conference in sacks with six and seventh in tackles for loss with 13. The challenge will be the depth of pass rushers the SEC boasts annually. Decent chance Zack Bailey, right tackle He’s USC’s best lineman and posted a strong 2017 in his first year outside after moving from guard. With a year of comfort at the position and health, after missing four games and one other start, he could make a push. Javon Kinlaw, defensive tackle The junior college transfer flashed athleticism and ability as he made 20 tackles with three pass breakups, a forced fumble and a blocked kick. That’s in a season where he had to work into better shape and earn a bigger role each week. He comes into 2018 as the team’s projected top defensive tackle. Rashad Fenton, cornerback For much of the season, he was one of the most avoided defensive backs in the SEC. The finish put a bit of a damper on things, but he still managed 48 tackles, one interception and eight pass break-ups. He’ll have to play a full year like he played the first half and perhaps need a bit more score sheet production. Joseph Charlton, punter He was known for booming some punts, with 17 longer than 50 yards in 55 tries, and put 15 inside the 20 with only four touchbacks. USC ranked 19th nationally in net punting, sixth in the SEC, and five of those teams lose their punters. There’s a chance if things break right Bryson Allen-Williams, linebacker His best skill is his versatility, which can make it harder to stand out for awards. He’s a player who can rush the passer a little, play in space, pick off a pass or two and post solid tackle numbers. If he can get one or two of those categories high enough to garner attention, the rest will boost his case. Jake Bentley, quarterback He’d obviously have to take a step forward from the 2,794-yard, 18-touchdown, 12-interception season he had in 2017, a campaign that was a hint disappointing considering the preseason expectations. He’d also have the roadblock that Missouri’s Drew Lock and Auburn’s Jarrett Stidham, both All-SEC passers this season, return. T.J. Brunson, linebacker Working alongside Skai Moore, he managed to post 88 tackles. That’s a good bit. If he can raise that total, he could have a chance, but he’ll also have to raise his number of big plays. He had 4 1/2 tackles for loss, two sacks (both in the bowl game), a pair of quarterback hurries and one fumble return touchdown. THE STATE

  16. Gamecocks’ 2018 All-SEC candidates January 09, 2018 Coming off a 9-4 season in Year 2 under coach Will Muschamp, there will be plenty of South Carolina football fans with sky-high expectations in 2018. SEC Country is here to help guide those Gamecocks fans toward some realistic goals for the upcoming season, which begins on Sept. 1 against Coastal Carolina, followed by two more home games against Georgia (Sept. 8) and Marshall (Sept. 15). Which South Carolina players could finish 2018 on All-SEC teams? Below are some of the most likely first-team candidates. 2017 All-SEC teams: Media | Coaches WR/KR Deebo Samuel (senior) Before exiting the Kentucky game with a broken left leg in Week 3, Deebo Samuel had established himself as an early candidate for the Heisman Trophy, catching 15 passes for 250 yards and 3 touchdowns. His rushing score and two kickoff returns for touchdowns firmly planted him in the mix for the SEC’s best return man and the league’s top all-purpose player. As long as Samuel can stay on the field in 2018, he’ll be right back in the middle of those same conversations. OL Zack Bailey (senior) Assuming Zack Bailey doesn’t declare for the NFL draft over the next few days, he’ll be back for one final season as the Gamecocks’ top offensive lineman. Over the last three seasons, he’s played center, guard and tackle. In 2017, he was the team’s starting right tackle. DE/OLB D.J. Wonnum (junior) D.J. Wonnum had a breakout sophomore campaign, leading South Carolina in sacks (6) and tackles for loss (13). Before the Outback Bowl, his teammates voted him as a permanent team captain, along with three other players. MLB T.J. Brunson (junior) After leading the team for most of the season in tackles, T.J. Brunson eventually gave way to Skai Moore, who’s now off to a career in the NFL. The middle linebacker finished second on the team with 88. Also in the mix OLB/DE Bryson Allen-Williams (senior) QB Jake Bentley (junior) RB Rico Dowdle (junior) CB Rashad Fenton (senior) WR Bryan Edwards (junior) DT Javon Kinlaw (junior) SECCOUNTRY
  17. SEC power poll: Where the Gamecocks rank early in conference play January 08, 2018 Forty-eight hours before its main sport gets the nation’s full attention, Southeastern Conference basketball proved it’s not bad, either. Hold up, Nick Saban and Kirby Smart, allow Chris Chizzola and Tremont Waters to get their shine first. Chizzola’s steal and buzzer-beating layup gave Florida a wild win at Missouri. Just over an hour later, Waters was LSU’s hero in College State with his 35-footer that lifted the Tigers over Texas A&M. Saturday was capped with Tennessee’s upset of Kentucky. These are good, highly competitive times on the SEC hardwood. ESPN’s Joe Lunardi had eight SEC teams among the 68 he put in his latest NCAA bracket projection. Six SEC teams are ranked among Ken Pomeroy’s top 40. There are seven SEC teams with a top 40 RPI. On the brink of Week 2 in league play, here’s our attempt at ranking the SEC: 1. Florida (11-4, 3-0 SEC) Last week: 2-0 (Won at Texas A&M, at Missouri) | This week: Mississippi State (home), Ole Miss (away) After a 6-4 start, the Gators have reeled off five straight wins, looking more like the Final Four contender some saw in the preseason. 2. Auburn (14-1, 2-0) Last week: 2-0 (Won at Tennessee, beat Arkansas at home) | This week: Ole Miss (home), Mississippi State (away) Twelve straight wins for the Tigers, including two over-ranked opponents last week. Bruce Pearl has done wonders with Danjel Purifoy and Austin Wiley is still sidelined after the FBI probe. 3. Kentucky (12-3, 2-1) Last week: 1-1 (Won at LSU, lost at Tennessee) | This week: Texas A&M (home), Vanderbilt (away) The Wildcats were outscored by 19 in the second half in Knoxville. John Calipari afterward: “They just threw us around. It was embarrassing." 4. Tennessee (10-4, 1-2) Last week: 1-1 (Lost to Auburn at home, beat Kentucky at home) | This week: Vanderbilt (away), Texas A&M (home) Few teams in the country as battle-tested as the Vols. They’ve already faced Purdue, Villanova, N.C. State, North Carolina and Kentucky. 5. Missouri (11-4, 1-1) Last week: 1-1 (Won at South Carolina, lost to Florida at home) | This week: Georgia (home), Arkansas (away) Cuonzo Martin is an early favorite for SEC Coach of the Year. Despite no Michael Porter Jr., the Tigers are still capable of making the Big Dance. 6. Texas A&M (11-4, 0-3) Last week: 0-2 (Lost to Florida and LSU at home) | This week: Kentucky (away), Tennessee (away) The Aggies entered last week ranked 11th nationally. They’re plenty talented, but injuries and suspensions have started to add up. Billy Kennedy’s crew must at least earn a split with upcoming trips to Lexington and Knoxville 7. Georgia (11-3, 2-1) Last week: 2-0 (Beat Ole Miss and Alabama at home) | This week: Missouri (away), South Carolina (home) Yante Maten, who torched the Tide for 26 points and 11 rebounds Saturday, is going to make the Bulldogs a tough matchup for any league member. 8. Mississippi State (13-2, 1-1) Last week: 1-1 (Beat Arkansas at home, lost at Ole Miss) | This week: Florida (home), Auburn (away) The Bulldogs didn’t play away from Starkville this season until Dec. 12. They’re 0-2 on the road with losses to Cincinnati and the Rebels. 9. Arkansas (11-4, 1-2) Last week: 0-2 (Lost at Mississippi State, lost at Auburn) | This week: LSU (home), Missouri (home) Consecutive roadies in this league can make for a difficult week, as the Razorbacks just found out. They can regroup this week without having to leave Fayetteville. 10. LSU (10-4, 1-1) Last week: 1-1 (Lost to Kentucky at home, won at Texas A&M) | This week: Arkansas (home), Alabama (away) After dropping 18 on Kentucky, Waters had 21 and the game-winning against the Aggies. The freshman is a near-future star in this league. 11. Ole Miss (9-6, 2-1) Last week: 1-1 (Lost at Georgia, beat Mississippi State at home) | This week: Auburn (road), Florida (home) After a 5-5 start, the Rebels are 4-1 in their last five, including a close win over the Gamecocks. 12. Alabama (9-6, 1-2) Last week: 0-2 (Lost at Vanderbilt and at Georgia) | This week: South Carolina (home), LSU (away) Collin Sexton is electric, but the freshman needs help. He scored half of the Tide’s points in Athens. 13. South Carolina (10-5, 1-2) Last week: 1-1 (Lost to Missouri at home, beat Vanderbilt at home) | This week: Alabama (road), Georgia (road) When Chris Silva stays out of foul trouble, the Gamecocks can compete with most of the league. When he’s on the bench, USC will struggle. 14. Vanderbilt (6-9, 1-2) Last week: 1-1 (Beat Alabama at home, lost at South Carolina) | This week: Tennessee (home), Kentucky (home) Vandy got beat up in the non-conference and the struggle’s continued since the calendar’s flipped to SEC season.
  18. A look at the wish lists for SEC coaches as the jolly fat man prepares to visit December 24, 2017 Santa Claus is coming to town, and given that coaches believe in anything and everything that can potentially provide even the smallest advantage, you can be sure that football coaches everywhere believe in the ability of the jolly fat man to grant wishes. Read on for a team-by-team look at what Santa could do for each of the 14 SEC coaches. Alabama Santa knows the ID of the real Saint Nick, and thus usually gives Nick Saban what he wants – and this year, that’s a fifth national title. Thing is, if Saban gets that, Santa knows the “Nick Saban is the greatest college coach ever” talk will create some controversy, and Santa usually isn’t too keen on controversy. Arkansas New coach Chad Morris has a long background in the state of Texas as a high school coach, and that has led to Morris’ wish: A steady influx of Texas high school talent making its way to Fayetteville, Ark. It may take a while for Santa to grant this one. Auburn This has been an interesting season for Auburn. The Tigers have played three of the four teams in the College Football Playoff and beaten two of them; alas, they also have lost to two of them, which is why they aren’t in the CFP and instead are in the Peach Bowl. What Gus Malzahn wants? A smooth season, without the ups-and-downs (and injuries) that have plagued the Tigers for four seasons in a row now. Florida Santa has answered the call of Florida fans, who wanted a coach who can improve the offense. (Well, we think he has answered them, with Dan Mullen.) Along those lines, there are rumors that when an elf displeases him, Santa makes said elf watch UF’s offensive “highlights” reel. Those rumors are true: Santa isn’t cruel, per se, but sometimes you need folks to fall in line. And after watching those horror shows, every single one of those elves fell in line. As for Mullen himself, he has seen the “highlights,” too, and like a 7-year-old fixated on Legos for Christmas, Mullen has asked for a complete set of offensive playmakers – quarterbacks, running backs, tight ends and wide receivers. Georgia Interestingly, Kirby Smart’s wish is the same wish as that of his mentor, Nick Saban – a national title. Know this, though: If Smart gets that wish in just his second season, there are going to be a lot of mighty peeved SEC coaches. Kentucky Mark Stoops wants his program to be relevant and finish with a winning record in SEC play – something that hasn’t happened since 1977. Alas, while Santa can work miracles, that may be out of his realm. LSU Santa skipped Baton Rouge last year, figuring that Ed Orgeron being named permanent coach was enough of a gift. Presumably, that was a one-year hiatus, and what Orgeron really wants is a legitimate passing attack – you know, one opposing defenses actually have to worry about going into a game. Mississippi State Above all, new coach Joe Moorhead wants a seamless transition from the Dan Mullen era, and because Nick Fitzgerald (presumably) still will be around next fall, that wish should be relatively easy for Santa to grant. A secondary wish is for a seamless transition when it comes to recruiting for Moorhead. After all, he’s going from recruiting Philadelphia, Pa., to recruiting Philadelphia, Miss. Missouri Barry Odom simply is asking for an increasing level of comfort with his defense. That unit made strides this season, with the yards-per-game average dropping almost 55 yards from 2016 (from 479.7 to 425.3). Another 50 or so yards would make Odom much more comfortable. Truthfully, like a child who genuinely likes every toy he gets for Christmas, even if others think some of them are lame, Odom won’t care if his defense isn’t considered top of the line; if it’s average, he’ll be fine. Ole Miss Matt Luke knows he received an early present – two, actually. One is that the NCAA investigation is over; while Ole Miss didn’t get what it wanted in terms of a result, it still is over and that is big. The second thing is that Luke was named permanent coach. Bottom line: Santa ain’t visiting Oxford and Luke is just fine with that. South Carolina Santa has looked into it and thinks Will Muschamp simply has made copies of his Christmas 2010 “wish list,” from when Muschamp had just been hired at Florida, and sends the same one over and over. It says, “Offense, please.” Santa wants some effort put into those wish lists, which may be the biggest reason he never has come through for Muschamp. Tennessee Santa feels really bad for Vols fans, who have lived through a decade of mediocre football under three coaches. Thus, he’d like to grant the wishes of new coach Jeremy Pruitt (there are a lot of them, with the main one being a defense that shows some toughness). But remember that Pruitt still is performing his duties as Alabama’s defensive coordinator, and granting Nick Saban’s wish (which Pruitt would share in, obviously) and granting Pruitt’s might be giving Pruitt a bit too much for one Christmas. Texas A&M New coach Jimbo Fisher already has struck it rich (literally and figuratively), and Santa has to be careful not to give too many gifts to one coach. But Fisher is asking anyway. Fisher’s offense is as quarterback-centric as any in college football, and he certainly wouldn’t mind high-level quarterback play for the Aggies in 2018. Vanderbilt Unlike most coaches in the SEC, Derek Mason isn’t one for elaborate wishes. He simply wants a winning season. Think of this way: While other SEC teams want shiny toys and top-of-the-line electronics (i.e., national titles and the like), the Commodores have a huge need for the basics, like underwear, socks and T-shirts (i.e., a winning season). Alas, Vandy hasn’t had a winning record since 2013 and has had just three since 1982; given that history, that’s a tough wish to grant, even for a guy who delivers gifts all over the world in one night.
  19. Third Georgia player arrested since team made college playoff December 13, 2017 A Georgia freshman is facing a felony forgery charge over allegations of passing a counterfeit $100 bill last summer, the third player to be arrested since the Bulldogs won the Southeastern Conference championship and a spot in the College Football Playoff. Defensive back Latavious Brini was taken into custody Tuesday evening by the Clarke County sheriff’s office. He was released about three hours later on $5,700 bond, jail records show. Media outlets report that Brini’s arrest stems from a July incident in which the counterfeit bill was used to make an $8 purchase at a pet supplies store, with the suspect receiving $92 cash in return. Police say the store realized later at a bank drop that the $100 bill was fake.
  20. Who made the best SEC coaching hire? Who made the worst? December 12, 2017 The Southeastern Conference has seen six football head coaching changes before the first bowl game of the season has been played. Now, after everybody has had a chance to catch their breath after the whirlwind turnover, let’s figure out who made out well and who left us scratching our heads. Ranking the SEC football hires: Florida: Dan Mullen The Gators hired former Florida assistant and Tim Tebow position coach Dan Mullen, who has spent the last nine years at Mississippi State proving he has the chops for the top job. Mullen was 69-46 in Starkville (making him the second-winningest coach on this list), and the job will be easier at Florida than it was at Mississippi State. The Gators took a big swing early on Chip Kelly, but they didn’t linger on it, moving on to check in on Scott Frost quickly and then nabbing Mullen. If this was the Gators’ third choice, it’s a really good backup plan to the backup plan, and they executed it without any embarrassment to the school. Arkansas: Chad Morris Chad Morris does not bring an impressive record to Fayetteville, but he does bring something that might be more valuable – strong recruiting ties to Texas. Before Morris got into college coaching at Tulsa, he was the head coach at five Texas high schools, and he remains a legend in that state’s prep circles. Given the low number of prospects traditionally produced by Arkansas high schools, it’s essential for a coach to successfully recruit Texas if he’s going to have a chance in Fayetteville. That combined with Morris’ success as Clemson’s offensive coordinator and his rebuilding job at SMU (where he went 2-10, 5-7 and 7-5) makes him a great fit here. Mississippi State: Joe Moorhead The Bulldogs could have ended up the big losers after seeing Mullen take off. Instead, they pulled off the best-executed search of anyone in the league. Two days after Mullen left, Mississippi State hired Penn State offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead. Bulldogs athletics director John Cohen was prepared for Mullen’s departure and didn’t waste any time with delusional thoughts about how this big-name coach or that big-name coach might give him the time of day. Instead, he jumped on Moorhead, who has head coaching experience at Fordham, a dynamic offense and is excited to have an SEC job. Texas A&M: Jimbo Fisher How do you dole out a 10-year, $75 million contract and end up with the fourth-best hire in SEC? Somehow, the Aggies seem to have done it. From the moment Texas A&M pushed out Kevin Sumlin, and even before that, it was focused on bringing Jimbo Fisher from Florida State. Fisher is 83-23 and won the 2013 national title so he’s the most successful coach in this year’s shuffle, and it was a good time for him to leave Tallahassee given that he and the Seminoles’ administration seemed to be growing tired of each other. However, Fisher’s record hasn’t been tracking in the right direction (13-1 in 2014, 10-3 in 2015 and 2016, 5-6 in 2017), and this is a huge investment in a coach whose previous fan base had its share of gripes. Ole Miss: Matt Luke There’s not much to say here. The Rebels were awaiting a nasty NCAA penalty, which now has come down, and weren’t going to find too many good options. When interim head coach Matt Luke, who played at the school and may be the only coach on the market who really wanted the job, upset rival Mississippi State in the regular season finale, it became an easy call to give Luke the full-time job. Tennessee: Jeremy Pruitt The Volunteers go docked some points for how messy the search is, and maybe that’s not fair, but it was really, really messy. First, Tennessee had a memo of understanding signed with Greg Schiano, but that blew up badly after a fan revolt. Then athletics director John Currie reportedly had a handshake deal with Mike Leach, but the powers-that-be back home nixed that deal and fired Currie on top of that. The athletics director job went to former UT coach Phil Fulmer, who reports said had been angling for it all along, and Fulmer went out and hired Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt. Pruitt fits the Saban-assistant mold that has worked at times at other places, but it sure felt like Fulmer immediately zeroed in on assistant coaches when he took over the search. A cynic might think that gives him the opportunity for more input into the program as the veteran sounding board.
  21. Another SEC Head Coach gone: Texas A&M fires Kevin Sumlin November 26, 2017 Texas A&M joins Arkansas, Ole Miss, Florida and Tennessee for the hunt to find new head coaches. South Carolina’s permanent cross-division rival will have a new man in charge. Texas A&M football officially fired coach Kevin Sumlin on Saturday. The Aggies went 51-26 in his six seasons. Saturday was a busy day for SEC coaching movement as hires at Florida and Tennessee were expected to be cemented shortly. There were reports circulating early in the day Sumlin was a prime candidate for the Arizona State job Todd Graham just lost, but Sports Illustrated’s Bruce Feldman shot that down for the moment. Sumlin went 20-6 in his first two seasons in College Station with Johnny Manziel running a high-powered offense. He received a six-year, $30-million contract, but has lost five games every season since.
  22. Texas A&M coaching change means Jimbo Fisher at Williams-Brice in 2018 December 01, 2017 South Carolina’s next chance to break through with a win over Texas A&M will come in 2018 against a new head coach for the Aggies. Jimbo Fisher has resigned as Florida State’s head coach and will be named to the same position at Texas A&M, according to multiple reports Friday. Fisher was 83-23 in eight seasons at Florida State. He led the Seminoles to the national championship in 2013, three ACC titles and four ACC Atlantic Division crowns. Texas A&M fired Kevin Sumlin after six winning seasons.
  23. Grading the SEC football coaching hires -- so far November 30, 2017 BY MATT MURSCHEL Orlando Sentinel The SEC coaching carousel has been spinning at breakneck speed during the past few days. Three jobs -- Florida, Mississippi State and Ole Miss -- have been filled, while two others -- Tennessee and Texas A&M -- are on their way to being filled. Check out the early grades of the coaching hires so far: Dan Mullen, Florida The Buzz: While not as sexy of a hire as Chip Kelly, Florida did manage to score a great coach with the addition of Mullen. Duringnine seasons at Mississippi State, Mullen has amassed a record of 69-46 with the Bulldogs, averaging about 7.7 wins per season. His connection to Florida is undeniable after spending several seasons in the mid-2000s as the Gators’ offensive coordinator under Urban Meyer, helping the team to a national championship in 2008. Mullen’s forte is developing quarterbacks something he’s done with players like Alex Smith (Utah), Chris Leak (Florida), Tim Tebow (Florida), Dak Prescott (Mississippi State) and Nick Fitzgerald (Mississippi State). His challenge is to resurrect a Florida offense that’s been putrid since Meyer’s departure in 2010. Grade: A Joe Moorhead, Mississippi State The Buzz: It’s been almost a decade since Mississippi State last introduced a new head coach. Mullen’s departure left the program looking for someone to step in and continue the work Mullen was able to do with the Bulldogs. Enter Joe Moorhead. The former Fordham coach led the Rams to a 38-13 record before joining the Penn State staff as the offensive coordinator. During the past two seasons, he’s transformed the Nittany Lions offense into one of the most efficient offenses in the country. He helped develop quarterback Trace McSorley into a potential NFL prospect. Grade: A Matt Luke, Ole Miss The Buzz: Luke did an admirable job taking over an Ole Miss team that suffered the shock of losing its head coach after Hugh Freeze suddenly resigned in late July. With the program in the middle of a bitter NCAA investigation that forced the school to self-imposed scholarship reductions and a one-year bowl ban, Luke kept the Rebels focused enough to win six games this season. There are challenges ahead as the school awaits NCAA sanctions, but Luke provides some stability heading into the future. Grade: B

  25. Ex-UGA coach: Muschamp ‘turning the corner’ on catching up with Smart November 02, 2017 Former Georgia head coach Jim Donnan doesn’t want to predict the outcome of Saturday’s game between South Carolina and the Bulldogs, but he will predict good things for the Gamecocks under head coach Will Muschamp. “Very impressed with Will, I have always liked Will as a coach,” Donnan told The State prior to speaking to the Columbia Touchdown Club on Thursday. “He didn’t inherit as good a team as we’ve got, but he’s done a good job of winning the close games, which you have to do when you’re turning the corner. The name of the game is getting players and I think that’s what he’ll do like (Georgia head coach Kirby Smart) has done. Donnan spoke to the club two days before the Gamecocks play his former team. The No. 2 Bulldogs (8-0 overall, 5-0 SEC) host South Carolina (6-2, 4-2) at 3:30 p.m. in Athens, Ga., on Saturday. Donnan had a 40-19 record from 1996-2000 at Georgia. He was the SEC coach of the year in 1997. He was 64-21 at Marshall before taking the Georgia job. Donnan was replaced by Mark Richt, who spent 15 years at Georgia before being replaced by Smart prior to the 2016 season. “I have been real impressed with Kirby since he got there, just the way he has taken over and developed a mindset of hard work,” Donnan said. “Some of these guys have gotten a lot better and they’ve really improved their weaknesses from last year.” The Bulldogs were ranked No. 1 this week in the first College Football Playoff standings. “I thought we’d be pretty good, but I had no idea we’d be undefeated,” Donnan said. “The thing that has been important for Georgia is that every week they have come out and played extremely focused, even the Samford game. That’s been the real key for them. They’ve been ready every week.” In his remarks to the crowd, Donnan broke down the local conference races. “I still think the ACC really runs through Clemson,” Donnan said. “I do have to give Dabo Swinney and his staff a lot of credit over the last few years. The difference between South Carolina and Clemson right now is so many of these instate players who used to come here, like Jadeveon Clowney, are going to Clemson. You have to give them a lot of credit. I still can’t believe Georgia didn’t get Deshaun Watson.” Alabama remains his pick to win the SEC, he said. “Everybody knows what Alabama is all about,” Donnan said. “It’s a machine over there. They have great players, but they develop them too. Realistically, I thinks the whole SEC run through there until somebody beats them.” He also told a story about South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley. “When Jake was 2 years old, I was still the coach at Georgia and Bobby Bentley was over at Byrnes,” Donnan said. “He had a really good receiver named Durrell Robinson. As fate might have it, I offered Coach Bentley a job to work in our camp, and his young kid is over there in my office with toys and everything. He was throwing a little Nerf ball around. You could tell right then he was very athletic. Every time I see Bobby I tell him we got it started over there in my office.”
