  1. Past hour
  2. The schedule is ridiculous. We have to play at least 4 teams that will probably be in the top 10 by end of the year. 3 out of those 4 teams will probably be ranked 1,2 and 3 in some form or fashion. So right off the bat you have to say we have 4 losses before the season even starts. Depressing. lol
  3. Our starting DLine will be good but depth will still be a problem. We do have some pieces in place that may help us spring an upset or two to get us to 7 wins but it will be very hard. If we win 7 this year it will be the best coaching job anyone has turned in at Caolina.
  4. That one hurt. We will have to win the SEC Tourney to get a host seating. Really surprised how well UK played but I will give them credit, they came into our house and handed it to us.

  9. Five offensive storylines to follow entering spring practice February 22, 2019 South Carolina begins spring football practice on Wednesday. The Gamecocks were 7-6 a year ago. The spring game will be held April 6 at noon and broadcast by the SEC Network. Here are the top five storylines surrounding the Gamecocks offense headed into spring: THE BACKUP QUARTERBACK If South Carolina coaches get their wish, no quarterback other than senior Jake Bentley will play a meaningful snap in 2019. There is not a competition for the starting job, but the backup spot looks totally up for grabs. The contenders are redshirt freshman Dakereon Joyner, sophomore Jay Urich and early enrollee freshman Ryan Hilinski. Joyner was South Carolina’s Mr. Football in 2017; Hilinski was one of the top quarterback recruits in the country last year. If Hilinski jumps in line and wins the backup job, it could prompt Joyner to change positions or even consider a transfer. For that reason alone, it’s likely the Gamecocks will exit spring without naming a No. 2 at the position. WIDE RECEIVER SHAKEUP Leading receiver Deebo Samuel is gone, clearing the way for Bryan Edwards to take on the No. 1 target role in his final season. Edwards has had at least 44 catches and 590 yards in his previous three seasons and seems up to the task. The bigger questions are what OrTre Smith will look like after missing most of last year with a knee injury, whether Shi Smith can take up all the slack left by Samuel’s exit and if sophomore Josh Vann can go from a freshman who showed flashes to a reliable No. 3 or 4 target. WHO WILL PLAY LEFT TACKLE? Sadarius Hutcherson, who has played guard the last two seasons, probably will get the first look. The junior doesn’t have a typical tackle frame, but he’s been the team’s most consistent lineman the last two years. Sophomore Dylan Wonnum, who started seven games as a true freshman at right tackle, could also get a look on the left side. Sophomore Jordan Carty and redshirt freshman Max Iyama also are options, Muschamp said. RICO DOWDLE’S LAST STAND The senior running back has a new position coach in Thomas Brown, who already has hinted that all the tailbacks underachieved last season, and no longer has competition from Ty’Son Williams, who is transferring, and perhaps A.J. Turner, who ended last season playing defensive back. Brown wants a clear No. 1 running back to emerge, and it seems like the decks are clearing for Dowdle to be that person. He’s had six 100-yard games in his career and had a career-high of 226 in 2016, but he’s also gone through periods of ineffectiveness. He’s got one more chance to have a statement season. WILL A TE EMERGE FROM PACK? In 2018, South Carolina went from Hayden Hurst, a first round NFL Draft pick, to tight end-by-committee, and it will probably rely on that same approach again this season. Jacob August is gone, but Kiel Pollard, K.C. Crosby and Kyle Markway all return. Meanwhile, tight end Evan Hinson has given up basketball to focus solely on football and to try and gain a larger role. Pollard led that group with 15 catches for 181 yards last year. Crosby added 11 catches for 101 yards.

  15. What a bummer... winning this one would've helped us a lot
  16. South Carolina Early Look At 2019 Schedule "Spring Addition" February 22, 2019 You’ve heard this before, but South Carolina has the pieces to be dangerous. QB Jake Bentley has plenty of talent to work with, but the O line needs a little tweaking. The defensive side is great up front but has a whole lot of work to do in the secondary. (MORE)
  17. South Carolina Early Look At 2019 Schedule "Spring Addition" February 22, 2019 You’ve heard this before, but South Carolina has the pieces to be dangerous. QB Jake Bentley has plenty of talent to work with, but the O line needs a little tweaking. The defensive side is great up front but has a whole lot of work to do in the secondary. USC might be better, but … Alabama, at Missouri, at Georgia, Florida, at Tennessee, at Texas A&M, Clemson. Can the Gamecocks be good enough to win at least four of those, and not trip up against a Kentucky, North Carolina, or Appalachian State? The projected win total will be among the bigger investment question marks of the offseason. – It’s a rough non-conference slate, considering the Gamecocks are opening things up against Mack Brown’s North Carolina team in Charlotte to kick things off. Charleston Southern is the break, but Appalachian State in early November is certainly no peach, and then there’s that massive matzo ball at the end of the regular season when Clemson comes to Columbia. – Not only do the Gamecocks have to face the defending national champs, but they get the brutal break of dealing with Alabama from the West to kick off SEC play. At least that’s at home, unlike the road game at Texas A&M to close out the conference season. – They aren’t a slew of good breaks against the East, either. Florida is a home game, but so are the Vanderbilt and Kentucky games, meaning USC has to go on the road to play Georgia, Missouri, and Tennessee. Out of the final ten games, the Vols are the only team that didn’t go bowling. Regular Season Play Early Spring Win Total Outlook: 7-5 Last Year Record: 7-5

    Key areas to keep an eye on during spring practice

    Yes OL is a bit of a worry. Running back is solid, not great hopefully in the 2020 recruiting cycle the Gamecocks can have a big upgrade. I feel good about the Gamecocks wideouts.
  19. DE Tonka Hemingway gives an update February 22, 2019,| Phil Kornblut Sports Updates It’s a wonder DE Tonka Hemingway of Conway can find any time to deal with his recruiting. He went right from football season to basketball season. And when his basketball team was eliminated from the playoffs this week, he stepped directly into baseball. He’s a first baseman and catcher. As for his recruiting activities, Hemingway said his most recent visit was to Wake Forest a couple of weeks ago. “It was a good experience,” Hemingway said. “They have a lot of good things to offer me. I like their facilities and all the new ones that are being built.” Hemingway said he doesn’t have anything else set for visits right now but he plans to see Duke and North Carolina at some point. He also plans to return to USC as soon as he can. USC remains in regular contact with Hemingway and Will Muschamp is encouraging him to come to Columbia and help in his building process. He’s also hearing from defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson and new defensive line coach John Scott who he has not yet met. “They like me and they want me to come there. They want me to come the new facility that they got built,” he said. Clemson, Hemingway said, has not been in touch outside of some letters, but he said he does plan to get up there for a visit. He said Clemson coaches came thru his school in January and talked to his coaches. USC and Wake Forest are the two showing Hemingway the strongest interest at this point. He also has offers from Maryland, NC State, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Duke, Ole Miss, Louisville and others. Hemingway say he’s not seen enough of the schools to settle on favorites right now. “I’m just trying to visit the schools and get to know and find out what type of environment that I like.” He said he plans to make his commitment the week of his first game in August.
  20. Gamecock Friday morning recruiting news February 22, 2019 Gamecocks offered CB Clark Phillips of La Habra, CA. Clemson also has offered along with Georgia, Michigan, Arizona, Arizona State, Tennessee, LSU, Oregon, Notre Dame, BYU and others. Gamecocks offered 2022 QB Gunner Stockton of Tiger, GA. Gamecock target LB De’Rickey Wright of Attallah, AL was offered by Notre Dame and LSU.
  21. Yes, this loss has put a dent in the Gamecock quest to win the SEC regular-season title.
