Gamecock will go bowling should be 6-4 going into the Clemson game. But really Clemson game will be the last chance for the Gamecocks have to but a positive spin on the season by beating Clemson. Which in itself will be like David and Goliath. David did take down Goliath. Gamecocks will need help just like David did. The Gamecocks will need help in
Muschamp had to make a move at offensive coordinator

You have to wonder if Kurt Roper would still be South Carolina's offensive coordinator had star receiver Deebo Samuel not broken his leg in the third game of the season.
If starting running back Rico Dowdle had been healthy. And if starting offensive linemen Cory Helms and Zack Bailey had not missed part of the season with injuries.
Those are the type of questions Roper must be asking himself after being reliev

What USC needs in its new head football coach
Oct. 20, 2015
Meg Whitman would make a great college football coach.
She’s the CEO of Hewlett-Packard and the former boss at eBay, and she’s good enough at her job that her net worth begins with the letter “b.”
Carly Fiorina might work, too. She’s the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, and she’s sure to be through the state soon as she campaigns for president, so she can interview then. Since she’s unlikely to win the presidency, she’ll n

What's the biggest reason for Steve Spurrier's decline at South Carolina?
In 1995, Steve Spurrier was in the midst of a record-tying stretch in which his Florida teams would win four straight SEC titles. That season, Florida played Georgia in the Peach State for the first time since 1932. Spurrier celebrated the opportunity by hanging"half a hundred" on the Dawgs. The Gators scored 52 points, to be precise.
Twenty years later, Spurrier was back in Athens. Same guy, same wh
