  1. Will this team suffering so much with Covid-19 injuries so far behind playing games. Should they shut it down? Just wondering on how you all feel. Lot of heat on the program past few years and with all what has been happing with Vovid-19. What you all say?
  2. Duce Staley asks the Eagles to release him from his contract With the reporting that Duce Staley is asking the Philadelphia Eagles to release him from his contract, where could the coach wind up? www.yahoo.com
  3. Have the teams down but still waiting on the dates. Only thing I guess is holding up is are unwelcome guest Covid-19. Be so happy when he packs his bags and goes far far away.
  4. If they can here is the road to six wins SEC wins required: Missouri, Vanderbilt, and Tennessee. If the Gamecocks lose one of those, the Gamecocks have a chance here to pick off Kentucky or Auburn None SEC wins: East Carolina, Eastern Illinois, Troy. Would lead to a six win season and a bowl trip would get the Gamecocks program on the tracks and bust recruiting right off the bat.

  8. South Carolina Falls to Auburn, 109-86 1/23/2021 | Men's Basketball | Box Score FROM USC SPORTS | GCF STAFF COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Allen Flanigan scored a career-high 24 points with four 3-pointers, Sharife Cooper had a double-double by halftime and Auburn resoundingly thwacked South Carolina 109-86 on Saturday for its first win on the Gamecocks home floor since 2014. Auburn put up its most points in a Southeastern Conference road win in program history. Cooper, a freshman who was granted eligibility by the NCAA Jan. 9, scored 16 points and had 12 assists for his second career double-double. He already had 10 points and 11 assists in the books in the first 20 minutes. Jaylin Williams scored 18 points with seven rebounds, JT Thor added 14 points and seven rebounds and Devan Cambridge scored 10 as the Tigers (9-7, 3-5) made 40 of 77 field goals (52%), including 14 of 27 from beyond the 3-point arc. The Tigers made 15 of 16 free throws to round out the dominating scoring effort. Cooper's impact was felt in Auburn's breakaway 11-1 run taking a little over two minutes of the first half. Though he took only one shot, and missed, he had four assists and a blocked shot during the run. The Auburn outburst included back-to-back dunks from Javon Franklin and Williams bracketed around Cooper's block of South Carolina's Trae Hannibal. The dunks pushed Auburn's lead into double digits, 25-14, where it stayed most of the way to halftime and all of the second half. The Tigers opened the second half with six straight points. Keyshawn Bryant scored 24 points for South Carolina (3-5, 1-3), with AJ Lawson adding 23 and Jermaine Couisnard 16. Couisnard had six assists. The Gamecocks were outrebounded 46-34, outscored on second-chance points 21-9 and 46-30 in the paint. Auburn next plays back-to-back games against teams in the Top 25: hosting No. 19 Missouri on Tuesday before traveling to No. 2 Baylor on Jan. 30. South Carolina plays host to Georgia on Wednesday. KEY STATS > Auburn shot 52 percent from the field (40-for-77) and behind the arc (14-for-27). > The Tigers were plus-16 in points in the paint (46-30). NOTABLES > Junior Keyshawn Bryant led South Carolina for the third-straight game with 24 points. Since returning at LSU (Jan. 16), Bryant has averaged 23.0 points per game. > Junior AJ Lawson scored 23 points after matching a career high with six made 3s. > Redshirt sophomore Jermaine Couisnard was the final Gamecock in double figures as he finished with 16 points, six assists and five rebounds. UP NEXT Carolina remains at home and will host Georgia (9-4, 2-4 SEC) on Wednesday, Jan. 27, for a 7 p.m. ET matchup. The contest vs. the Bulldogs will be broadcast on ESPN2.

  9. How true wish Frank grow his hair back. Got the wrong shape head for a skin head. But anyhow win would be great and getting healthy and staying there.
  10. Gamecocks hanging tough with Gaston January 22, 2021 / Recruiting USC has been one of the favorites of SAF Juwon Gaston (5-11 170) of Montgomery, AL for several weeks. In fact, he has called the Gamecocks his favorite in the past. But he landed an offer from Auburn earlier this week, and considering the proximity to his home, it stood to reason that the Tigers would jump right in and mess things up for Shane Beamer and company. However, Thursday night, Gaston said that is far from the case. “I really want to get out of the state so I can meet more people, new people,” Gaston said. “But I appreciate the opportunity they gave me. They said they really like me. They like how I play and they think I can come to their program and help them out.” Beamer was on the phone with Gaston Thursday night just making sure the Gamecocks remain in the lead spot for him. “He was making sure that I was still locked in with them and stuff like that, and that I still feel good about the team,” Gaston said. “He was telling me about the new strength and conditioning coach. I hear from them every day.” And for good measure Thursday night, Gaston restated his position that the Gamecocks are in the lead position for him. And he will have a Zoom call with the staff on Tuesday. “I’m feeling great about South Carolina,” Gaston said. “I’m feeling really good about them. They are still number one. They are still my favorite. They’ve recruited me the same since they first offered. They’re a big favorite.” Gaston also has had Tennessee and South Alabama on his short list, but with the coaching change in Knoxville, he said the Vols are no longer under consideration. He plans to wait until Signing Day next month to announce his decision, but he will privately commit to his choice before then.
  11. Yep so right. Hope Gamecocks can get refund back on some of the contract money.

With the hiring of Adkins, Coach Beamer has finalized his initial on-field coaching staff for the 2021 season. "Greg is a veteran offensive line coach who has had a lot of success everywhere he's been," said Coach Beamer. "He has SEC experience. (Offensive coordinator) Marcus Satterfield and I both worked with him at Tennessee and he's also worked at Georgia. He's an elite recruiter and builds great relationships with his players," added Coach Beamer. Adkins comes to Carolina after having spent the past three seasons as the offensive line coach and recruiting coordinator at Marshall University, working under head coach Doc Holliday. Marshall posted a 24-12 record from 2018-20 in what was his second tour of duty with the Thundering Herd. In 2020, the Thundering Herd surrendered 12 sacks in 10 games, ranking 13th in the country, while allowing just 3.5 tackles for loss per game, the nation's fourth-best mark. Right guard Cain Madden earned second team All-America honors from both the Associated Press and Walter Camp. Madden and fellow offensive lineman Josh Ball were named first-team All-Conference USA, while Alex Mollette was a second-team selection. Under Adkins' tutelage, offensive linemen Levi Brown was a first-team All-Conference USA center in both 2018 and 2019, while Madden earned second team honors in 2019. Adkins began his coaching career at his alma mater, mentoring the defensive line, tight ends and offensive line at Marshall for five seasons from 1991-95. He was on the staff that won the 1992 Division I-AA national championship and appeared in three other I-AA national title games (1991, '93 and '95). Between his two tours of duty at Marshall, Adkins coached the offensive line at six schools, including four Power-5 schools, two of which are in the SEC. His resume includes stints at Georgia (1996-2000), Troy (2001-02), Tennessee (2003-08), Syracuse (2009-12), Oklahoma State (2015-17) and Charlotte (2018). He also handled recruiting duties at Syracuse, Tennessee and Troy; coached tight ends and defensive line at Georgia; mentored the tight ends at Tennessee; and served as Charlotte's run game coordinator and interim offensive coordinator. Adkins also has NFL experience, having a two-year stint in Buffalo as the Bills' tight ends coach from 2013-14. Born March 25, 1968, Adkins is a native of Cross Lanes, West Virginia. He played four seasons as an offensive lineman at Marshall, graduating in 1990.

In 2019, he mentored first-team All-Conference USA center Levi Brown and second-teamer Cain Madden. During the 2018 campaign, he mentored first-team All-Conference USA center Levi Brown and captained a unit that protected redshirt freshman quarterback Isaiah Green en route to nine wins and a seventh-consecutive bowl victory. Adkins, a four-year offensive lineman and 1990 Thundering Herd graduate, previously coached at Marshall for five seasons (defensive line, tight ends, offensive line) from 1991-95 and helped guide the program to the 1992 I-AA national championship and three more appearances in the I-AA national title game (1991, ‘93, ‘95).

  16. Gamecocks make offer to Georgia tight end STR / January 20, 2021 Tyrus Washington Leesburg High School in Georgia has been a fertile recruiting ground for USC in recent years. Former safety Jammie Robinson came from Leesburg, and incoming running back Caleb McDowell starred there this past season. The Gamecocks have gone back to Leesburg with a couple of 2022 offers, one to safety Jaron Willis and the other to tight end Tyrus Washington (6-4 230). The new Gamecock coaching staff recently made the offer to Washington. Tight ends coach Erik Kimrey, running backs coach Des Kitchings and offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield are the ones in touch and developing the relationship with Washington. “The relationship is really strong. I like it,” Washington said. “I’ve been talking to the tight ends coach and the running backs coach, and the offensive coordinator. I can split out and be like a wide receiver, and come down and bang with the big boys, block the defensive linemen.” Washington said he has talked with McDowell about the reasons he settled on USC after decommitting from NC State. “He said he liked how the coaches talked to him,” Washington said. “He liked the coaching staff. He liked the energy. Jammie told him about the energy and atmosphere at the stadium and said he loved it.” But Washington added that McDowell’s future with the Gamecocks won’t be an influencing factor with his decision. “That’s not a factor really. It’s just going to help to have somebody there with me if I go there,” Washington said. Washington said Coastal Carolina, Cincinnati, USF and Arkansas are some other schools he’s hearing a lot from. He also has offers from Pitt, Ole Miss, Boston College, Charlotte, Notre Dame, Tennessee and Troy. Washington wants to make his decision before his senior season, and he will sign in December. Last season Washington caught 15 passes for 200 yards and 8 touchdowns.
  17. I know C-19 will most likely play a part here, but somehow if we get herd immunity. Would be nice to be able to get out there and watch again. I feel Beamer will if possible.
  18. Wallace on cruise control until Signing Day STR / January 19, 2021 It’s roughly two weeks until the February National Signing Day, and USC target LB Trevin Wallace (6-2 217) has gone into full recruiting chill mode. The former Boston College commitment is not sweating the decision because it’s practically made. So, he’s been spending more time talking with his family and less time talking with recruiters. He does hear from USC coach Shane Beamer via text most every day. Just a word or two of inspiration. Wallace said it’s been a little while since he last talked with a Gamecock recruiter. The others he’s been hearing from are Auburn, Kentucky, Illinois and Ole Miss. “My plan is to make everybody sit there and wait and be clueless,” Wallace said. “I’m sitting undercover now.” So, Wallace has a secret and he’s not going to share until Signing Day. But he did let on that he’s got an idea as to which school he’ll choose. “I’ve got a feeling that I do,” Wallace said. “I like how they talk to my parents. My parents feel comfortable with them. Overall, it’s just a good community to be in. They’ve just told me I’m going to be a baller.” But, Wallace added, at this point, he’s still not married to any one particular school. “I’m in the middle, you know,” Wallace said. “I’ve still got a couple of weeks to wait. Anything can change in that kind of time.” Wallace said he has done Zoom sessions with the coaches from USC, Auburn, Tennessee and LSU. Wallace is a four-star in the 247Sports Composite. He’s ranked the #13 inside linebacker nationally in the class.
