  1. GAMECOCKFANATICS OFFICIAL PREVIEW & PREDICTION THREAD South Carolina vs Missouri Who: South Carolina Gamecocks (1-2, 0-1) vs Missouri Tigers (2-1, 0-0) When: Saturday September 21st, 2019 Kick-off: 4:00 pm ET Where: Faurot Field at Memorial Stadium, Columbia, MO TV: SEC Network Alternate The 2019 season continues as the South Carolina Gamecocks travel to Columbia, MO to battle with the Missouri Tigers this Saturday at 4:00 pm Eastern Time. This game will be South Carolina's second Southeastern Conference contest of the season, while it is Missouri's first for 2019. The Gamecocks will try to extend their current three-game win streak against the Tigers, on hostile ground in front of Missouri fans at Faurot Field at Memorial Stadium. The Coaches USC Gamecocks Head Coach: Will Muschamp (age 48), 4th year, 23-19 (51-40 as Head Coach) Offensive Coordinator/Wide Receivers: Bryan McClendon Defensive Coordinator/Defensive Backs: Travaris Robinson Quarterbacks: Dan Werner Running Backs: Thomas Brown Offensive Line: Eric Wolford Tight Ends: Bobby Bentley Defensive Line: John Scott Jr. Special Teams/Linebackers: Coleman Hutzler Special Teams/Nickle Backs/Sam Linebackers: Kyle Krantz Outside Linebackers: Mike Peterson Missouri Tigers Head Coach: Barry Odom (age 42), 4th year, 21-20 Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks: Derek Dooley Defensive Coordinator/Safeties: Ryan Walters Senior Associate Head Coach/Defensive Line: Brick Haley Associate Head Coach/Special Teams Coordinator: Andy Hill Assistant Head Coach/Running Backs: Cornell Ford Linebackers: Vernon Hargreaves Offensive Line: Brad Davis Wide Receivers: Garrick McGee Defensive Backs: David Gibbs Tight Ends: A.J. Ofodile The Series Match-up The Clash of Columbia’s Series currently stand at South Carolina leading 5 wins to 4, with a current win streak of 3 consecutive games. Gamecocks Head Coach Will Muschamp is 4-2 versus Missouri as the top man at both Florida and South Carolina, while Tigers Head Coach Barry Odom is 0-3 thus far versus South Carolina. The series has been a competitive one, with South Carolina scoring a total 164 points thus far, to Missouri scoring 162. The largest victory by the Gamecocks came in 2012 when Connor Shaw set a program record of 20 consecutive pass completions and an overall 95.2 completion percentage (20 for 21), as the Gamecocks won 31-10. The largest victory by the Tigers would come in 2015 with a 24-10 win. Key Match-ups In The Game Both the Gamecocks and Tigers will feature key players that were once teammates at Clemson, but transferred: starting QB Kelly Bryant for Missouri, and #2 RB Tavien Feaster for South Carolina. Missouri awaits South Carolina with a top nationally-ranked offense: the Tigers have the current 26th-ranked Scoring Offense and 34th-ranked Total Offense, while the Gamecocks bring the 30th-ranked Scoring Offense and 25th-ranked Total Offense. So both teams should be featuring strong offenses this Saturday. The big match-up here may be how both teams’ defenses perform: the Tiger’s defense has been solid thus far, with a 24th-ranked Scoring Defense and 4th-ranked Total Defense, featuring the nationally 2nd-ranked Pass Defense. South Carolina’s own defense has not fared as well, with the 81st-ranked Scoring Defense and 107th-ranked Total Defense. Missouri’s own impressive defensive totals come mainly from their last two games, which were versus West Virginia and FCS opponent Southeast Missouri, where the Tigers won 38-7 and 50-0 respectively, and out-gained both opponents 883 to 265. That will help out your team stats. But obviously the key match-ups here will be both teams’ offenses against the defenses – in particular our own offense and rush offense against Missouri’s defense. Key Players For The Game For South Carolina’s offense, freshman QB Ryan Hilinski is coming off his first SEC start, his first ever 300+ passing game, and his first SEC Freshman Of The Week award as a result. Hilinski has passed for 606 total yds in just two games, completing 69% of his attempts, with 4 tds and 2 ints. WRs Brian Edwards (15 receptions for 198 yds and 2 tds) and Shi Smith (13 rec. for 158 yds and 1 td) have been the workhorses in the passing game: hopefully we’ll have others stepping up soon to give those guys and Ryan a helping hand – most notably from Josh Vann (9 rec., 62 yds) and OrTre Smith (4 rec., 42 yds). RBs Rico Dowdle (33 carries for 251 yds and 2 tds) and Feaster (29 carries for 169 yds and 1 td) had strong games against a solid Alabama defense, and hopefully will continue that momentum into next Saturday. Mon Denson (9 carries, 118 yds, 1 td) and Kevin Harris (6 carries, 147 yds, 3 tds – all in one game) will be ready to go. They will face a dominant Missouri defense led by a pair of LBs in Cale Garrett and Nick Bolton, as well as DE Edge rusher Chris Turner. For Missouri’s offense, QB Bryant is the obvious focal point, but they also have RBs Larry Roundtree and Tyler Badie who have combined for 484 net yds at 5.7 YPC, and 6 rushing tds. Badie is also a very dangerous receiver out of the backfield, with 11 catches for 81 yds. That’s 1 reception less than the team-leading receiver Johnathan Johnson, who has caught for 96 yds. Those are the receiving workhorses, but Missouri has some big-play receivers in Jalen Knox (9 receptions for 192 yds), Albert Okwuegbunam (7 rec., 138 yds, 3 tds), and Jonathan Nance (5 rec., 84 yds, 2 tds). Okwuegbunam and Nance have accounted for 5 of Missouri’s 6 total passing tds thus far. South Carolina will counter on defense with leaders Ernest Jones, R.J. Roderick, Javon Kinlaw, DJ Wonnum, Jaycee Horn and Israel Mukuamu. Wonnum has yet to record his first QB sack of the season, although he is tied with Kinlaw with the team lead in tackles for loss, with 3.0 (all 3 of Kinlaw’s TFL have come from sacks). This Saturday would be a good time for him to grab 1 or 2. South Carolina Will Win If Our defense must improve to have a chance. The weakness thus far has been towards the interior, with the Safeties and the Linebackers. Team tackling, a nagging issue during what seems Coach Muschamp’s entire time at USC, also needs to improve. Overall communication needs to improve at the back two levels of defense. The offense under Hilinski’s leadership appears to have settled down a bit. There still are issues with efficiency in the Red Zone, and converting touchdowns instead of field goals. If the offense can continue what started against Alabama, and the defense improves on its execution, the Gamecocks will be eye-to-eye with Missouri all game long, and have a good chance to take the game. Missouri Will Win If If Bryant is able to pick apart our secondary like Alabama was able to, and our own defense is not able to apply any better pressure, it could possibly again turn into a track meet on offense, where our offense can’t keep up. Missouri goes for more down-the-field “catastrophic” plays on offense, than our own offense is designed to try, so unless our defense can step up and contain the Tiger offense in this game, Missouri could move away from us, and secure the win.

  7. The heat is on Sept. 05, 2019 South Carolina’s defense has some redeeming to do and the pressure to succeed weighs heavier on those shoulders now that a freshman is leading the Gamecocks offense. It was a poor second half showing in the season opener in Charlotte. After defending their end zone and limited North Carolina scoring to four field goal attempts, the Gamecocks defense could not hold on to an 11-point lead with less than a quarter and a half to play. Back-to-back 90-plus yard touchdown drives were surrendered due to lack of execution, lack of tackling, passes that should have been intercepted and more. (VIEW ARTICLE) FREE 247SPORTS
  8. I am not going to name any names, ya'll know who it was, but I was really glad to see one O-line starter being dropped. He let the D keep getting by him and getting straight to our QB in the pocket. The QB is supposed to be able to step up into the pocket, he made it so there was no pocket about 50% of the pass plays. I hate the way Jake plays sometimes, but it was not all his fault. As far as the receivers missing their routes, maybe they need to give Urich the chance again like they did in spring. What about Legette? And watching Edwards drop 2 and seem to slow down when that long ball came his way like he did not even expect it. Hopefully we will see several changes to go with our new QB. As far as Ryan goes, I went and watched some of his film again. Great talent, hope he really picks us up. And that kid is really strong, go look as his arms. I hope he gives us the boost we need. Jake saved our team as a freshman, maybe Ryan can too.

  10. Muschamp SEC media teleconference report Sept. 04, 2019 With the disappointing effort against the Tarheels to go along with the possibility of a season ending injury to Bentley, Hilinski is the face of the program to possibly have the chance to turnaround the Gamecocks, fortunes. As all know the team has a slew of other issues to deal with. One one issue Coach Will Muschamp has made changes on the offensive line, some good news set aside is the backfield which was one of the few bright spots from the season-opening loss. There were also problems on defense as the Gamecocks gave up two scoring drives of 90-plus yards. (VIEW ARTICLE)

  12. GAMECOCKFANATICS OFFICIAL PREVIEW & PREDICTION THREAD: 2019 Belk College Kickoff Classic South Carolina Gamecocks vs North Carolina Tarheels When: Saturday August 31, 2019 Kick-off: 3:30 pm EDT Where: Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, NC TV: ESPN The 2019 season kicks off in earnest as the South Carolina Gamecocks battle their old rivals the North Carolina Tarheels in the Belk College Kickoff Classic, in the 75,523-seat Bank of America (BoA) Stadium on Saturday, August 31st, at 3:30 pm ET. The last time each team faced each other, it pitted head coaches Steve Spurrier for USC and Larry Fedora for UNC. This season will be the first ever contest between Gamecock Head Coach Will Muschamp, in his 4th year at USC, against 1st-year Tarheel Head Coach Mack Brown. Another story within a story, Muschamp spent three seasons on Brown's staff at Texas, as the Defensive Coordinator and "Head Coach In Waiting", before taking the top job at Florida in 2011. Both programs are coming into 2019 looking to step forward from their previous seasons' performances. Muschamp's Gamecocks finished 7-6 (4-4) in 2018 in a season that many feel under-performed with heart-breaking losses to Texas A&M, Kentucky, and Florida, as well as a disappointing 28-0 loss to Virginia in the Belk Bowl, played in BoA Stadium. Brown takes over the Tarheels program in his second stint as their Head Coach - he previously coached UNC from 1988 to 1997 - and is looking to rebuild the fallen program that experienced only two Atlantic Coast Conference wins, and only five wins overall, over the previous two seasons. The Coaches USC Gamecocks Head Coach: Will Muschamp (age 48), 4th year, 22-17 (50-38 as Head Coach) Offensive Coordinator/Wide Receivers: Bryan McClendon Defensive Coordinator/Defensive Backs: Travaris Robinson Quarterbacks: Dan Werner Running Backs: Thomas Brown Offensive Line: Eric Wolford Tight Ends: Bobby Bentley Defensive Line: John Scott Jr. Special Teams/Linebackers: Coleman Hutzler Special Teams/Nickle Backs/Sam Linebackers: Kyle Krantz Outside Linebackers: Mike Peterson UNC Tarheels Head Coach: Mack Brown (age 67), 1st year (2nd stint), 11th year overall, 0-0, 69-46-1 total (244-122-1 as Head Coach) Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks: Phil Longo Co-Defensive Coordinator/Safeties: Jay Bateman Co-Defensive Coordinator/Inside Linebackers: Tommy Thigpen Wide Receiver: Lonnie Galloway Running Backs: Robert Gillespie Offensive Line: Stacy Searels Assistant Head Coach/Tight Ends: Tim Brewster Defensive Line: Tim Cross Cornerbacks: Dre Bly Special Teams/Outside Linebackers: Scott Boone The Rivalry - The Battle Of The Carolinas This season's game will be the 58th edition to "The Battle of the Carolinas": a rivalry that began in 1903, and spanned across both programs being conference mates in the Southern Conference and then the Atlantic Coast Conference. UNC holds a 34-19-4 overall lead in the series. USC would win the final 4 games in the series as a conference rival in the ACC, and then win 8 of the next 13 games - including 6 of the last 7 - as an independent and then current member of the SEC. After this opening game, both teams are scheduled to meet again in 2023, again at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. Key Match-ups In The Game With UNC's new Air-Raid offense under Phil Longo, and new "position-less" defense under Jay Bateman, UNC will have their work cut out for them to get onto the same page quickly against South Carolina. On offense, UNC will rely heavily on it's RB depth - not-so arguably the strongest position on its offense, if not its entire team. The Tarheel QB will be young, inexperienced, and facing a SEC level defense for their first time, regardless who it may end up being. The RBs will be expected to be additional receivers all game long, as well. Perhaps the biggest question after the QB position for the Tarheels is their OL, which returns only two starters from 2018. South Carolina's defense's biggest match-up will therefore be at the line of scrimmage, with their veteran experience of seniors Wonnum, Kinlaw, Smith, and Thomas. If Coach Muschamp's defense can collapse the Tarheel OL consistently, it could be a reverse to what Bateman wants from his own defense, and keep UNC's offense off the field, and allow the Gamecock offense to stay on it. Defensively, UNC will also look to fluster USC QB Jake Bentley with disguises, pre-snap movements and unique blitz angles. The idea behind this is to eliminate double-teams on defensive players, to effectively leave offensive blockers with no one to block. Overall to fluster QBs on their reads, OLs on their assignments, and put the offenses into 3rd and long situations, and get them off of the field. Their defense will depend heavily on strong DT play, and they do have a couple of quality DTs in seniors Crawford and Strowbridge, but beyond them their depth is thin in experience. The offensive response to this for South Carolina, is for senior QB Jake Bentley to be on his game. He needs to make strong reads of UNC's defensive looks, and hit his targets dead on when he gets them. UNC's DL may not be that consistent with it's young depth, so the Gamecock RBs must exploit whatever weaknesses or soft spots they can find, and help the passing game. This is a major objective for the Gamecock offense against any opponent this season, but it will be especially crucial against an unproven Tarheel defense playing their first game in a new system. Overall, both USC and UNC come into this game with major questions for their ability to defend against the run. Both had terrible run defenses in 2018: USC was ranked 95th nationally, while UNC was 111th. USC's run offense was mediocre in 2018, ranked 92nd nationally, while UNC's was a strong 44th. Both teams return veteran experience and depth at the RB position, while UNC's offensive scheme may ultimately turn towards the pass game, they will rely largely on their RB leadership. USC will need to hope that improvements on their defense combined with UNC's weaker OL plus their inexperience will make the difference in the game, while their own run game is able to capitalize on UNC's issues with their own defense. Whichever team's defense responds against the opposing run game better, will go a long way towards helping that team to victory. South Carolina Will Win If The Gamecocks bring the more battle-hardened, experienced, and more confident team. There is more continuity, and more leadership. They just need to play like it. Bentley and Edwards are set to become all-time career leaders at QB and WR for South Carolina - they need to bring their leadership and talents and knowledge to the table. Bentley has had issues with starting games in the past too emotional and fired up. Hopefully his maturity will enable him to calmly lead the team. The offense under Coach McClendon is adynamic one, but the consistency of execution has not been at times. Start the game on the same page, make the reads, make the blocks, and the backs hit the seams, and the offense should be strong. The defense comes out strong and aggressive, and they will find plenty to eat. North Carolina Will Win If This may be almost as much a question on South Carolina as it is on North Carolina. The Gamecocks have started season-openers sluggishly in the past, but they've been fortunate to come on strong late in games and pulled them out. But Mack Brown is a proven coach: does he have the talent and depth he'll need in Game 1 of Season 1 (Part 2)? Will South Carolina help his team believe that he does? The last thing an inexperienced team with little confidence needs, is a boost of confidence from their opponent, where the Gamecocks are concerned. What Will Happen This South Carolina team is loaded with veteran players: Bentley, Edwards, Dowdle, Feaster, Wonnum, Kinlaw, Thomas, Brunson, Smith. Lots of leaders who are on their last rodeo. They will have this season as their final chance to put their signature on their college careers, and perhaps get people at the next level looking their way. Several of them contemplated trying for that next level after last season, but for various reasons returned to make a stronger case for themselves in 2019. This team left 2018 with some unfinished business, and a sour taste in their mouths. UNC is totally YOLO-ing it this season, with no idea what lies ahead, and little expectations for themselves. Early on, as each team and staff feels each other out, there will be some stumbles and mistakes, but I expect South Carolina's experience and depth to push through towards the end of each half, as North Carolina's team wears down... GCF Prediction South Carolina 42, North Carolina 24 Please offer your thoughts and discussion regarding the game!
  13. AUGUST 21, 2019 | by GC RAMEY | THESPURSUPSHOW Why Transfer Nick Muse Could be the Next Great Tight End at Carolina This past week brought sad news to Gamecock nation regarding tight end Kiel Pollard. It’s clear that the upside is there, but unfortunately, the only thing that could prevent this from happening is the one thing that Muse cannot directly control: the NCAA’s decision. Because Muse is a transfer, he is technically required to sit out a year. Knowing this, he filed a request for a waiver that would allow him to take the field in 2019, but as of yet, nothing has been decided. Typically this may not be an issue, especially since Muse has the eligibility to spare. However, if he does end up cleared to play, it could lead to a special opportunity for the North Carolina native, a chance to go against his big brother. Although Muse says there’s “no rivalry against brothers,” he still knows that facing-off against Tanner at least once would, “be a big deal.” Tanner, who is a senior and 2-time national champion, wants the opportunity before he completes his career at Clemson as much as Nick does. If it happens, their respective positions on the field could further add to the intrigue. With Nick at tight end and Tanner at safety, there’s a good chance that the brother’s paths would collide, literally, and you better believe neither brother would want to give an inch. Although Tanner is older, at six foot two inches tall, he’s no longer the bigger brother, which is why I like Nick’s chances to win that match up. So far Nick Muse has said and done all of the right things to make that dream come true. It’s evident from his hard work and positive mentality that he, at the very least, deserves a chance to earn playing time in 2019. However, even if the NCAA’s decision is not what Muse and the coaching staff want to hear, he assures fans that he will take that year-off in stride and get “bigger, faster, [and] stronger.” That’s the attitude of a winner.
  14. Looking forward to the trip, less than 13 days away.
  15. Gamecocks players thought on new uniforms ‘That Black Magic is something special.’ August 14, 2019 The 2019 Gamecocks enter the season unranked, but at some point they’ll look like one of the more famous teams in program history. “That Black Magic is something special,” junior safety Jamyest Williams said Wednesday, “you know what I’m saying? Magical things are coming soon.” Senior linebacker Eldridge Thompson said the Gamecocks have yet to see the new uniforms in person. Just like the fans, they were excited Tuesday when the school-produced video was released on social media. “We haven’t even seen them,” Thompson said. “We’ve just seen them on the internet. But I do like the stripes on the outside. It’s different from our other black ones.” South Carolina’s previous black jerseys — worn twice last season — feature garnet and white stripes on the shoulders. The new black jerseys have stripes on the sleeves. “I’m ready to switch it up a little bit,” Thompson said. “I can’t wait.” Though it’s yet to be determined when the Gamecocks will wear their throwbacks, both Williams and Thompson have suggestions. “The first game,” Williams said of the Aug. 31 opener with North Carolina in Charlotte, “come out striking. ... Hopefully we get to wear that Black Magic suit the first game.

  17. WATCH: Gamecocks unveil throwback uniform August 13, 2019 There will be a different twist to the garnet and black uniforms South Carolina’s football team will wear at some point in the 2019 season. In partnership with Under Armour, who is releasing a nationwide School Heritage campaign with affiliated schools, the Gamecocks revealed a throwback look. It's a recreation of the "Black Magic" 1980's black jersey accompanied by white pants and a garnet helmet that sports the Block C logo inside a white circle. South Carolina's New and Creative Media Team, under the direction of Justin King, published this video of the uniform reveal on Tuesday afternoon.
