  1. Kyle Krantz back on the sidelines as new special team's coordinator and assistant defensive backs coach Jan. 17, 2020, | GCF Staff Report Kyle Krantz is back on the sideline after a very brief period off. Krantz, who was pushed into an off-field role for the Gamecocks earlier this offseason due to a staff shake-up, will once again become an assistant coach after the departure of Coleman Hutzler, head coach Will Muschamp announced Friday.

  4. Former USC coach Steve Spurrier: Let him work with QBs, not recruit, call plays on Saturdays and play a little golf. It’s totally unrealistic and fantastical, plus they’d have to figure out his buyout as University of Florida ambassador. Not going to happen, move on.
  5. Hilinski To Undergo Arthroscopic Surgery to Repair Meniscus 12/3/2019 | Football | From USC Sports Information | GCF Staff Report University of South Carolina quarterback Ryan Hilinski will have arthroscopic surgery to repair a small tear of the lateral meniscus in his left knee, it was announced today. The actual date of the surgery is still to be determined. Media reports stating that Hilinski suffered a torn ACL are completely erroneous. (VIEW ARTICLE)
  6. GAMECOCKFANATICS OFFICIAL PREVIEW & PREDICTION THREAD: South Carolina Gamecocks vs Clemson Tigers Who: South Carolina Gamecocks (4-7, 3-5 SEC) vs Clemson Tigers (11-0, 8-0 ACC) When: Saturday November 30, 2019 Kick-off: 12:00 pm ET Where: Williams-Brice Stadium, Columbia, SC TV: ESPN The Gamecocks close out the 2019 season hosting their bitter in-state rival Clemson Tigers this Saturday in Williams-Brice Stadium: the game is a scheduled noon kick-off, and will be broadcast on ESPN. The Coaches USC Gamecocks Head Coach: Will Muschamp (age 48), 4th year, 26-24 (54-45 as Head Coach - 8th year) 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/Nickel Backs/Sam Linebackers: Kyle Krantz Outside Linebackers: Mike Peterson Clemson Tigers Head Coach: Dabo Swinney (age 50), 12th year, 127-30 Defensive Coordinator/Linebackers: Brent Venables Co-Offensive Coordinator/Wide Receivers: Jeff Scott Co-Offensive Coordinator/Running Backs: Tony Elliott Defensive Line: Todd Bates Special Teams Coordinator/Tight Ends: Danny Pearman Recruiting Coordinator/Quarterbacks: Brandon Streeter Offensive Line: Robbie Caldwell Cornerbacks: Mike Reed Safeties: Mickey Conn Defensive Ends: Lemanski Hall The Series Match-up The Gamecocks and the Tigers have played a total of 116 games dating back to 1896. Clemson holds a solid lead in the series 70-42-4, and will be looking to extend their current win streak over South Carolina to 6 wins, the longest such streak since their series-record 7 consecutive wins, from 1934 through 1940. Key Match-ups For The Game The most key match-up I would assume, would be between South Carolina’s offense and Clemson’s defense: mostly because the Gamecock’s offense has been sputtering of late, they will be without their top receiver Bryan Edwards who is out with an ACL injury, and are bringing their top running back – Clemson transfer Tavien Feaster – back from injury himself; while Clemson’s own defense has been one of the better defenses in CFB this season. Not to be out-done, would be the match-up of Clemson’s offense – among the top 5 in the nation in scoring and total offenses – against South Carolina’s defense, which has fought hard, but has also struggled in the bottom half of the SEC in most categories. South Carolina Will Win If Not really sure what “IF” exists out there: last season we had one of the better offensive showings in the series’ history, and still lost by three scores. I do not think our offense will come close to last season’s effort. Sure, we had a bye week to prepare the team for the game, but our staff has not exactly shown themselves to masters at team preparation during their time in Columbia, and Clemson also had a bye week last week as well. Clemson Will Win If I expect the game atmosphere to be decidedly pro-Clemson in terms of fan engagement and on-field execution and productivity. My only hope will be to see if South Carolina can contain Clemson enough to prevent an all-time series scoring record. Gamecock Fanatics Prediction Clemson 52, South Carolina 20

  8. What’s motivating South Carolina in season finale against Clemson? Nov. 26, 2019, | GCF Staff Report The closest South Carolina vs. Clemson game of the last decade came between a Gamecocks team going nowhere and a Tigers team headed toward a national title game. Deshaun Watson and Clemson came to Williams-Brice Stadium in 2015 with a No. 1 ranking and an undefeated record. It was a three-touchdown favorite to beat USC, a bunch led by an interim coach and coming off a loss to The Citadel. Final score: Clemson 37, South Carolina 32 the Tigers improved to 12-0. The Gamecocks dropped to 3-9. (VIEW ARTICLE)

  10. The opening line is out, and Clemson is, as expected, massively favored to beat South Carolina and extend its run of dominance in the Palmetto Bowl. Westgate Superbook released its initial line for the Nov. 30 game at Williams-Brice Stadium between the Tigers and the Gamecocks, and CU is the 24.5-point favorite. Since 1995, the spread in this series has topped 24 points just twice, in 2018 and 2016. The largest it has ever been at Williams-Brice was in 2015, when Clemson closed as the 20.5-point favorite, according to the betting database from Oddsshark.com.

  12. Muschamp promises for the last two games, what you will see Nov. 14, 2019 Muschamp promises more ‘creativity,’ solving predictability. Can he keep the promises? Coach Muschamp made the promise: more creativity. It is a one-word response and hope for reversing what is ailing the most basic part of his offense. He is a coach who believes in establishing the run, and since that hasn’t come to fruition of late; he aims to see some changes. Muschamp said. (VIEW ARTICLE)
  13. Sunday Night Muschamp Tele-Conference Notes & Audio Nov. 10, 2019 USC coach Will Muschamp has a simple solution to winning more football games with the Gamecocks. Run the ball better. Coming off a loss to Appalachian State in which his offense produced just 21 rushing yards, Muschamp said he has directed his offensive staff to come up with new personnel packages and formations to help the running game. Muschamp said in games they have run the ball well, they have won. The Gamecocks are 4-6 with games at Texas A&M and home to Clemson left. They have to win both to quality for a bowl. The Aggies are 10 point favorites. Will Muschamp conference call Some of Muschamp’s key comments: Felt they were very good on defense against Appalachian, disappointing on special teams. Gave up 10 points related to kickoff returns. Tavien Feaster, OrTre Smith and AJ Turner questionable for this weekend while Bryan Edwards and Shi Smith are good to go against Texas A&M. Said they had 7 drops Saturday and thought Ryan Helinski was accurate in his passes. In light of recent coaching developments (Taggart fired after 21 games, Morris after 22), said he feels his administration (university president and AD) remain supportive of him. Disputed a question asking why his team has more injuries than any other SEC team. Doubted that claim was accurate considering the team’s don’t release detailed injury reports. Added that they’ve had 4 season ending injuries this season, the average is 4-6. What Muschamp said about his support from administration, conversations with Tanner Sunday night After a night when his team struggled in a myriad of ways, South Carolina football coach Will Muschamp said he still feels good about the support he has from his administration. His team is sitting at 4-6 and in danger of falling to 4-8 as it projects to be a double-digit underdog each of the final two games. But when he spoke Sunday night after the loss to Appalachian State, he spoke as a man looking forward. “Everybody’s been very positive, supportive,” Muschamp said. “What we need to do moving forward, and that’s what you know, we’re excited about, not where we are but where we’re moving. And we’ve made a lot of strides. A lot of progress, being a program that in the first three years of the staff won more games than anyone else has. And we’ve had some inconsistencies this year that have been frustrating. We’re looking forward to battling out of it.”

  15. Which Gamecocks have locked in redshirts, who is getting closer this week Nov. 06, 2019 This does not include a bowl game if eligible. The math on Carolina's redshirt situation is built on the large question of the postseason. The Gamecocks have a lot of work to do to make a bowl, needing to take two of three from Appalachian State, Texas A&M and Clemson to get it done. In either case, some Carolina players have already secured redshirt seasons for 2019, while others are right on the edge. (VIEW ARTICLE)
  16. Gamecocks youth movement brought on by injuries Nov. 07, 2019 When Jakai Moore entered the starting lineup on Saturday night for Carolina it was one thing. The fact redshirt freshman Deshaun Fenwick got 18 carries while true freshman Kevin Harris got 10 was another. The Gamecocks have stumbled lately either by injury, necessity and whatever else into a youth movement. After Saturday’s win against Vanderbilt, the kids are looking all right. All told, the Gamecocks started only four freshmen, three true. They played at least 9 more, including three in the defensive backfield, four in the offensive backfield, plus a few more.

  17. Latest on the injury front: Gamecocks’ top rusher questionable for Saturday’s game vs Appalachian State Nov. 05, 2019 South Carolina football is set to get running back Rico Dowdle and a slew of other players back off a knee injury this week. But the status of fellow runner Tavien Feaster is now questionable. Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp said Feaster missed practice with a groin issue. That’s one of the few pieces of bad new for a team set to get back a cluster of players. Other Injuries Muschamp said Dowdle, defensive end Brad Johnson, linebacker Damani Staley, offensive lineman Dylan Wonnum, wide receiver Shi Smith, defensive tackle Keir Thomas should be back this week. Offensive tackle Jaylen Nichols remains out with an ankle, while a hamstring issue has running back A.J. Turner is questionable.

  19. GAMECOCKFANATICS OFFICIAL PREVIEW & PREDICTION THREAD: South Carolina Gamecocks vs Vanderbilt Commodores Who: Vanderbilt Commodores (2-5, 1-3) vs South Carolina Gamecocks (3-5, 2-4) When: Saturday November 2, 2019 Kick-off: 7:30 pm ET Where: Williams-Brice Stadium, Columbia, SC TV: SEC Network The Gamecocks return home for their final conference home game of 2019, as they welcome the Commodores of Vanderbilt in an SEC-East Divisional match-up between two teams who are moving in opposite directions of late. The Gamecocks’ bowl bid chances for the season are on life-support, while the Commodores’ own chances are not that far behind. This Saturday’s game will also be a rare night game for the Gamecocks – just the second such game scheduled thus far for the season, in the 9th game. South Carolina will be looking to reverse a bad trend of two losses in a row, while the Commodores – a badly struggling team for much of their season, are coming in off of an impressive home win over previously top-25 ranked Missouri. The Coaches USC Gamecocks Head Coach: Will Muschamp (age 48), 4th year, 25-22 (53-43 as Head Coach - 8th year) 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/Nickel Backs/Sam Linebackers: Kyle Krantz Outside Linebackers: Mike Peterson VU Commodores Head Coach: Derek Mason (age 50), 6th year, 26-43 Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks: Gerry Gdowski Defensive Coordinator/Inside Linebackers: Jason Tarver Special Teams Coordinator/Tight Ends: Devin Fitzsimmons Cornerbacks: Terrence Brown Defensive Backs: Marc Mattioli Running Backs: Tim Horton Wide Receivers: Aaron Moorehead Outside Linebackers: Matt Weikert Defensive Line: Jovan Haye Offensive Line: Cameron Norcross The Series Match-up This season's game is the 29th in the series that dates back to an odd game in 1961: the 2nd game would come as conference rivals in USC’s first year as a member of the SEC in 1992. South Carolina holds a commanding 24-4 series lead overall: Vanderbilt’s 4 wins have come in two 2-win spurts in 1998 and 1999 – the infamous 1-21 Gamecock seasons – and in 2007 and 2008. South Carolina currently holds a 10-game win streak, with an average score of 25.9-15.3. Being SEC divisional conference match-ups, the games have typically been tightly contested, however last season the Gamecocks won 37-14 in Nashville, TN – the largest margin of victory between the two schools since 2004. Key Match-ups For The Game Vanderbilt comes into the game with struggles along both the offense and defense. They are 14th in the SEC in six of the eight primary statistical categories: they are 10th in Passing Offense (USC is 8th), and they are 12th in Passing Defense (USC is 13th). By far the most secure understanding of what Vanderbilt will bring on offense will be their top running back in Ke’Shawn Vaughn: Vaughn IS the Vanderbilt rushing attack at this point of their season, with 131 of their 208 carries, 703 of their 894 rushing yards, and 6 of their 7 total rushing touchdowns. He is currently the 2nd-leading rusher in the SEC behind UGA’s Swift, and with Swift one of the only 2 backs currently averaging north of 100 yds per game thus far in the season. So he’s not a secret in the SEC, but it also has not stopped Vaughn from producing at a high level this season. USC will first need to contain Vaughn’s effectiveness at running for big gains, and we will go a LONG way to nullifying the Commodore offense. The passing game for the Commodores is much less certain. They have two transfers leading the way at QB: Ball State graduate transfer Riley Neal has been the starter for most of the season, but lost his spot to former Syracuse QB and JUCO transfer Mo Hasan against Missouri, their last game. Hasan was impressive in that game, but suffered a concussion from a targeting hit during the game, but not before the win was secured. It was the only official appearance this season for the Commodores for Hasan, but afterwards, Mason declared Hasan the starting QB going forward, with Neal as his back-up. The Commodores had their bye week last week, so they have had an extra week to prepare for our game, but Mason stated during his pre-game presser Tuesday that Hasan was still in Concussion protocol. That doesn’t tell us if he will start this Saturday, or what practices if any he’s taken these two weeks, or perhaps its just coach-speak and Mason doesn’t wish to show his hand too soon. Whether or not the Commodore passing attack can be effective will help their rushing attack with Vaughn flourish, so this will be a key development as the week progresses. And our own passing defense has been struggling mightily lately: after the UGA game, it seems to have regressed, actually. As for our own team personnel, Hilinski seems to have moved past his earlier arm and knee injuries, and is practicing fully with the team. Back-up QB Kerion Joyner is still recovering from his hamstring, but declared during the Gamecock pre-game presser he’s feeling as good as he has in several weeks. LB Ernest Jones and OL Sandarius Hutcherson are expected to play – OL Dylon Wonnum, RB Rico Dowdle, and DB/RB AJ Turner are out. South Carolina Will Win If The Gamecock defense needs to execute better against the pass. It has been taking a step back in recent games, and needs to be aggressive against QBs and WRs who have not really been consistent all season. If the defensive front seven can keep Vaughn contained (he is also the Dores’ 2nd-leading receiver) and force the Vanderbilt passing attack to move the ball, things should turn our way, but that requires the Gamecock secondary to hold the line. Vanderbilt’s offense has the 2nd-fewest turnovers in the SEC, so they won’t be hurting themselves too often this Saturday, unless we force them to. Offensively, Hilinski and the Gamecock passing attack need to be better than it was versus Tennessee, especially on key downs. The game-plan needs to be sound as well. Vanderbilt is also last in the SEC in QB sacks and Interceptions as well, and next to last in Tackles for Loss, so the Gamecock offensive line shouldn’t be expected to be pressured too harshly, but I also thought we’d be OK versus Tennessee, and they had their game of the season against us. Feaster going off for another huge game will help as well. Vanderbilt Will Win If There will be very little the Gamecock coaching staff will have on film to plan for Hasan. It may not matter if our Secondary produces another stink bomb against the pass like it did last week. Vanderbilt will still feature the effectiveness of Vaughn, and pass the ball around what he can produce. The Commodores had a bye week of preparation against us, and we’re probably a little downcast from the loss last week. Hopefully the Gamecock fan-base is not, and is ready to fire up the team for a night-time SEC home game. But Vanderbilt should be fired up as well off of their Missouri win, and if we continue to struggle on both sides of the ball, the Commodores could end our win streak at 10….. Gamecock Fanatics Prediction South Carolina 35, Vanderbilt 24

  21. Football 10/29/2019 Kinlaw Named Bednarik Semifinalist One of 20 on List for Defensive Player of the Year Award University of South Carolina defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw has been named a semifinalist for the Chuck Bednarik Award, which recognizes the Outstanding Defensive Player of the Year, the Maxwell Football Club announced today. Kinlaw, a 6-6, 310-pound senior, has filled up the stat line with 23 tackles including 5.0 sacks, tied for third in the SEC, three quarterback hurries, a pair of fumble recoveries and a blocked kick. Kinlaw, who some NFL experts have labeled a first-round NFL draft pick, was the SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week for his performance at Georgia, and was a midseason All-American by both the AP (first team) and The Athletic (second team). The field of 20 contenders is comprised of fresh faces, all of whom are making their debuts as Bednarik Award semifinalists. Six different conferences are represented, led by six student-athletes from the SEC and five from the Big Ten. The 2018 Bednarik Award went to Kentucky's Josh Allen. Semifinalist voting will begin on Wednesday Oct. 30 and will close on Nov. 24. Three finalists will be announced on Nov. 25 and a second round of voting will take place at that time. Eligible voters include Maxwell Football Club members, NCAA head football coaches, sports information directors and selected national media. The winner of the 25th Chuck Bednarik Award will be announced as part of the ESPN Home Depot College Football Awards Show presented by Gildan, which will be broadcast live on ESPN on Dec. 12, 2019. The formal presentation of the award will be made at the Maxwell Football Club's Awards Dinner on Friday, March 6, 2020 at the Tropicana Casino & Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
  22. USA Today: Where Muschamp’s salary, buyout stack up in the SEC Oct. 22, 2019 Earlier this season, there was a considerable amount of consternation about the Gamecocks football coaches’ buyout and salary among the Gamecocks fanbase. On Tuesday, USA Today delivered a more clear picture of where he stood in the SEC. Muschamp is the seventh-highest paid coach in the conference according to the annual database and 23rd overall. His buyout as of Dec. 1 would rank 15th. The database has his salary listed at $4.4 million, with up to $1.4 million in possible bonuses. He earned $175,000 in bonuses last season. His buyout is listed at $19.44 million. That buyout, which is 75% of his remaining contract that runs five more years, drew some flack when the team dropped to 1-3 earlier this year. The buyout, which is probably too much to pay this season, is ahead of successful coaches such as Dan Mullen ($12 million) and Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh ($11.69 million), but behind less proven coaches such as Purdue’s Jeff Brohm ($27.65 with a 15-18 record) and Nebraska’s Scott Frost ($20.7 million with a 8-11 record at Nebraska). Clemson’s Dabo Swinney is first in the county in salary at $9.255 million with a $50 million buyout. Texas A&M’s Jimbo Fisher is fourth in salary at $7.5 million, but his buyout is $60.625 million. Other SEC coaches making more than Muschamp are Nick Saban (Alabama), Gus Malzahn (Auburn), Kirby Smart (Georgia), Mullen (Florida) and Mark Stoops (Kentucky).
