  4. Shane Beamer's weekly press conference recap with videos coach & selected players Sept. 14, 2021 This week, the Gamecocks face their biggest challenge to date, traveling to #2-Georgia for a 7pm kickoff on ESPN. The Bulldogs are also 2-0 with wins versus Clemson and UAB prior to their SEC opener. On Tuesday, head coach Shane Beamer, along with running back Kevin Harris, wide receiver Dakereon Joyner, and OL Jovaughn Gwyn visited with the media to preview the trip to Athens. Saturday’s contest will be the 74th meeting all-time between the Gamecocks and Bulldogs with UGA leading the series 52-19 with two ties. The Bulldogs have won five of the last six, though USC claimed a 20-17 2 OT triumph in Athens two seasons ago. Georgia is Carolina’s second most played rival behind the Clemson Tigers. Keynotes from Beamer’s presser Beamer: On trying to mimic UGA's personnel in practice, "It's hard when Georgia has running backs that try and run through you. And they've got offensive linemen that are 330+ pounds that can move and are athletic." Beamer:On his sideline role as a head coach. "I realize as the head coach that all eyes are on me, so I need to try & stay steady & under control. When the offense is on the field, I'm on the headphones talking with those guys." He says the same is true when the defense is out there. Beamer: says that his coaching staff will be all over the state of Georgia on Friday nights. Realizes how many good players are in the 'Peach State'. Beamer: on handling adversity at ECU and how it might help them moving forward. "You write down the things that might lose us the game. I think we checked them all," against ECU. "From a mental standpoint, doing what we did last week, does nothing but help us." Beamer: When asked about cutting down on penalties, Beamer notes, "#1, we teach off of it as much as we can. We have officials at practice most days. We want to educate as much as we can. That was the disappointing thing about Saturday." Beamer: on Doty, "we fully expect him to be ready to roll on Saturday night." With that said, Zeb Noland made some, "great plays down the stretch", versus ECU. Beamer: says the 2019 game was going on at the same time as the UT/OU game. Afterward, his family came on the field and Beamer thought they were going to be excited about the Sooners beating Texas. Instead, his family's first words? "South Carolina just beat Georgia." Beamer: "They are really, really good. It will be a big challenge for us." Beamer: says this may be the most talented team in the history of Georgia football. "Wow, there is a reason they were picked to win the SEC East. The talent just jumps off the tape at you." Beamer: "We're certainly not tip-toeing into it (SEC play)." Georgia is "one of the premier programs in the country. A lot of the things we do in this program come from Kirby." Beamer: "Excited to open SEC play. It's the greatest conference in the world." Beamer: says injury-wise, the Gamecocks are in good shape. Luke Doty did "more today", than he did yesterday. "Fully expect him and the rest of our guys to be 100% on Saturday night." Sandidge remains out. Beamer: opens his weekly press conference thanking Gamecock fans for their support in Greenville last weekend. Adding, "we're going to need them in Athens. WR Dakereon Joyner: Asked about the advice he's given to Doty during his rehab. "Things are going to happen, it's how you respond to it." WR Dakereon Joyner: on TD catch versus ECU: "We've practiced the play since spring. I think that was the first time we caught it (chuckles) in the game." WR Dakereon Joyner: on 2-0 start, "thing is we've always been confident. With the work we put in (during spring), we know what we're capable of. There's no surprise to us, we know the work we've put in." WR Dakereon Joyner: on WRs: "I think we're a group that can make a lot of plays." WR Dakereon Joyner: on the last visit to Athens, a 20-17 2 OT win for USC. "I wasn't supposed to play in that game. I think it was a shocker that I played. I'm excited to go back to Athens and enjoy the atmosphere."

  8. Shane Beamer Sunday night conference call Gamecocks with (AUDIO) September 5, 2021 Shane Beamer addressed the media via conference call, Sunday, to look back on the Eastern Illinois victory and ahead to the challenge of East Carolina. Quarterback Luke Doty and running back Kevin Harris both returned to practice. Beamer did stress that he won’t put Doty on the field before he’s ready and he won’t name a starting quarterback ahead of Saturday. Beamer said he likes that ECU will have to prepare for Doty, Zeb Noland, and Dakereon Joyner. Shane Beamer Sunday conference call:
  9. We will add as they become available/reported/known; the new have may have a different structure than the old one. Head coach: Shane Beamer Offensive Coordinator: Marcus Satterfield Tight Ends: Erik Kimrey Wide Receivers: Justin Stepp Running Backs: Montario Hardesty Offensive Line: Greg Askins Quarterbacks: Marcus Satterfield Defensive Coordinator: Clayton White Defensive Backs: Torrian Gray Outside Linebackers: Mike Peterson Defensive Line: Jimmy Lindsey Special Teams: Pete Lembo Analysts, GAs, and staff: Byron Jerideau (Tennessee); Shaq Wilson (Tennessee), Ahmad Smith (W. Kentucky), Kiel Pollard (USC)
  10. 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.
  11. LINK VIDEOS New University of South Carolina Head Football Coach Shane Beamer officially unveiled the first seven members of his staff Monday morning to the media, a group which includes four holdovers from Will Muschamp's staff as well as a trio of new faces. Formally introduced for the first time were Erik Kimrey (tight ends), Will Friend (OL) and Pete Lembo (associate head coach/special teams), along with the announcement of the retention of Mike Bobo (offensive coordinator/quarterbacks), Des Kitchings (RBs), Tracey Rocker (DL) and Mike Peterson (OLBs). Connor Shaw will also remain on staff in an off-the-field role that is still being developed. Beamer said that he hopes to fill the final positions on his staff -- the defensive coordinator, cornerbacks coach, wide receivers coach, and the strength and conditioning coach -- very soon, and that all the top candidates for those spots are still very much in play. "Filling our positions while a season was still under way was a challenge, no question about it," Beamer said, adding that his 7-year-old was wondering why his father hadn't added Nick Saban and Dabo Swinney to the staff yet as well. Beamer took time to comment on each of the four holdovers and why he had made the call to keep them. Mike Bobo "It's rare to find a proven SEC coordinator with a track record of success like Mike has. They are few and far between. My dad almost hired Mike at VPI - we sent a plane down to Athens to pick him up and he just never got onto it. Even if he had not already been in this building, he probably would have been my first call." "Even with no spring ball and all the restrictions due to COVID, he did a great job last season, and we're excited to begin to implement some of the cutting-edge schemes we ran at Oklahoma into the run and pass game here at Carolina." Des Kitchings "I ran into Des on the recruiting trail when I was at Georgia. He's a great coach, a great recruiter, and I've just been blown away by him and what he is about. Des is in on the recruiting of virtually every player I have asked about, and he is so well thought of." Tracy Rocker "Tracy and I spent a year together at Georgia. He is loyal and demanding, a great technician. He has coached and played at the highest levels. After it was announced that Tracy was returning, I got a text from Sylvester Croom congratulating me on making a great hire and that it was a great decision, so we are thrilled." Mike Peterson "Mike was only one the four that I had never had a working relationship with, and I wanted to talk to him and see the fit for our staff - and it quickly became obvious that we needed to keep him." Connor Shaw "I met with Connor and told him under no circumstances was I letting him leave this building. We are still working through the specifics, but he will be in mostly the same role he was in before, but will be a little more involved with the football and recruiting side of things." Beamer then broke down the reason behind the hires of each of the three new staff members, and each new staffer introduced themselves to the media and fielded questions via Zoom. Pete Lembo "Ask any coach in America who the best special teams coaches are in the country, and Pete would be the first or second person they mentioned. If I hadn't been able to get Pete, I would probably have just coached them myself and saved the staff position for elsewhere," Beamer said. Lembo comes to USC from Memphis, which finished an 8-3 season on Dec. 23 with a victory over Florida Atlantic in the Montgomery Bowl. "This is a special opportunity ... an opportunity to challenge myself in the greatest conference in college football. (Coach Beamer) is is confident, well prepared, and will excel as a head coach, and my family and I are very happy to return to an area that we are very familiar with after my time at Elon," Lembo said. Lembo said his job will be to build a relationship with every player on the roster, and that if he is doing his job well, each of these players will develop into a better player and make the special teams unit greater than the sum of its parts. "I've been doing this for 28 years, and I figured out early that the way I could make an impact on every player on the team was through Special Teams. My system is simple, easy to learn, and efficient - I feel like I have gotten a PhD in football these last five years (at Rice and then Memphis)," he said. When asked about a successful onside kick to start the game in 2011 against Oklahoma when he was the head coach at Ball State, Lembo said such decisions are only made after film study and lengthy preparation process. "It could be lining up a certain player on their left tackle in punt coverage, or calling a fake. But these only come from a strategic and thoughtful process," he said. Will Friend "I moved into Will's old house when I joined the staff at Georgia. Jeremy Pruitt was right across the street and Mike Bobo was right around the corner. In fact, Will was part of the package with Mike Bobo to come to VPI, so I almost got to work with him there," said Beamer. "Mike's best years at Georgia were with Will as his OL coach. I reached out to several former players from Georgia to ask about him as well." Friend comes to Carolina from the same position at the University of Tennessee. "Why USC? I know Coach Beamer some, and it was an opportunity to get back to work with Mike (Bobo)," Friend said. "Coach Bobo is one of the best playcallers in the country and I've been with him for 12 years. There's nobody better, and my comfort level with him is high." "I also remember what it's like to play at Williams-Brice. I remember 2012 (a 35-7 whipping of the Georgia Bulldogs) and frankly I've never experienced anything like it," he said. Friend said his vision for the offensive line was simple. "It starts with physicality and leadership," he said. Friend said the best OL units have players loaded with what he called "the intangibles." "It's all about toughness and want-to," he said. Erik Kimrey "Erik loves Carolina. As for high school coaches who have made the jump to college, he is extraordinarily qualified and is prepared to be successful," said Beamer. Kimrey, a third-generation Gamecock, said he and his family would have been happy to finish out his career as the high school coach at Hammond and that there was only one place he would have considered to jump into the college game - his alma mater. "I am beyond grateful for this opportunity," he said, and thanked Brad Scott for convincing him to walk on at Carolina and Lou and Skip Holtz for the tutelage and impact on him as a player and then as a coach. "Besides my dad, Skip may be the single most influential person on my career," he said. He also thanked all the state high school football coaches and said he would always be there for them. "Most of all I want to thank Shane Beamer," he said. "I see in him a man of passion and authenticity. I have never heard a single bad word said of him from anybody. I'm excited about recruiting and getting the work done." Tidbits: Kimrey said he expected TE Nick Muse to return next season. "We had a great conversation and I feel confident he will be back. He's a great guy and we need him." Beamer said he was looking for a DC who plays multiple scheme types and who would mesh with the rest of the staff from a philosophical standpoint. When asked about resisting the urge to clean house and start fresh, Beamer said, "Every situation is different. we had a heck of an OC here already in the building. He is loyal as all getout, and he wanted to be here." Beamer also added that a pair of SEC head coaches texted him to congratulate him on keeping Bobo. -- Swayin
  12. Shane Beamer’s days of double duty are quickly coming to an end 12/17/2020 Beamer has spent the majority of his time since being hired in Oklahoma finishing his duties with the Sooners, but that should be ending this week after the Big 12 championship. “We play in that game Saturday in Dallas and I get on that plan first thing Sunday morning and my family’s coming with me on Sunday,” Beamer said. “In my mind, I’m full speed ahead and there for good.” Beamer and the Sooners play in the Big 12 title game against Iowa State Saturday (noon, ABC) and it should be the end of Beamer’s obligations to Oklahoma. Win or lose Beamer will be heading back to Columbia to begin his full-time work at South Carolina. He’s already devoting the majority of his afternoons and evenings to the job now but once in Columbia will have 100 percent of his resources to putting together his staff and filling out the rest of the 2021 class. What he might also get to do is be there for bowl practices and can use those as an evaluation tool heading into the offseason. “From a selfish standpoint for me I’m excited to be able to get over there and watch practice and get around these guys and get to know them and see them on the field and watch them practice and help me learn more and more about them as individuals, position groups and teams.” The Gamecocks haven’t gotten a bowl bid yet—those will be handed out Sunday—and could get one despite being 2-8 this year. Beamer doesn’t have an opinion one way or another on going to a bowl, but said the feedback he’s gotten from the team is players are excited for a chance to compete.
  13. Looks like a strong possibility that Wolf is heading to Ky. Stoops hints at South Carolina's Eric Wolford as next OL coach: "I have a guy in mind. ... It'll happen" | Kentucky Sports Radio Mark Stoops will now turn his attention to filling out the rest of Kentucky's coaching staff, starting with arguably the biggest remaining vacancy: the offensive line coach kentuckysportsradio.com
  14. Beamer gives his offensive, defensive philosophy 12/08/2020 New head coach Shane Beamer doesn’t have a staff in place yet, but he already knows what he’s looking for out of each unit and will make hires accordingly to fit in with his philosophy. Beamer hasn’t been a coordinator on either side of the ball yet, but has an idea of what he wants each unit to look like next season. (READ MORE)
  15. New member here, but I have been posting on boards since the AOL days, was an admin on both the old rivals and scout boards, started my own independent board (The Order of the Spur) as a refuge for folks who wanted to get away from the board wars and belligerent nonsense of the big boards, and we shuttered that site and moved it to Facebook about 4 years ago ... and now Facebook is an even bigger sewer of anger and polarity than the boards ever were! So ... here I am. I think smaller communities are more tightly knit and look forward to contributing and getting to know you fine folks. Oh, was a Carolina student from '83-'87, back in the dawn of time, lol.
  16. South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Kentucky Wildcats Saturday, Dec 05, 2019 At this point do you care now about the game tomorrow with all the talk centered around finding the new head coach? I know I do. And want to see the Gamecocks win. With the number of injuries and much much disappointment season yet again. What would you like to see happen tomorrow. No1 for me is a win and Harris to great the 1000 yard plateau.
  17. South Carolina lineman Makius Scott enters the NCAA transfer portal Dec. 04, 2020 On Friday, the freshman lineman entered the NCAA transfer portal. As always, it should be noted that a player entering the transfer portal does not guarantee their time at the school is over, it simply is the first step towards a transfer from the program. However, it should also be noted that South Carolina has removed all record of Scott from the team website, so his return to the Gamecocks doesn’t look very promising. Following Muschamp’s firing, Scott opted out of the season after defensive backs Jaycee Horn, Israel Mukuamu and RJ Roderick all did the same. Scott signed with South Carolina out of Gainesville, Ga., in the 2020 recruiting cycle. He was rated as a three-star prospect and the No. 62 defensive tackle nationally in the 2020 recruiting cycle.
  18. Kentucky vs South Carolina Prediction, Game Preview Dec. 03, 2020 / From CFN Kentucky vs South Carolina Broadcast Date: Saturday, December 5 Game Time: 7:30 ET Venue: Kroger Field, Lexington, KY Network: SEC Network Why South Carolina Will Win The Kentucky offense really, really isn’t working. South Carolina might be having a whole slew of issues – and the real focus is on finding a new head coach – but this is the perfect team to deal with at just the right time. Okay, okay, okay, so UK couldn’t get the O going against Alabama, Florida and Georgia over the last four games – not a whole lot to shame there. However, it only gained 145 yards against Missouri and 157 against Mississippi State as part of a brutal run six games in seven without hitting 300 yards of total O. The Cats have no downfield passing game, no pass rush or pressure in the backfield, and there are way too many stalled drives. A low scoring slugfest – that’s perfect for the Gamecocks, because … – Week 14 College Schedule Why Kentucky Will Win Yeah, you know that whole offense thing the kids are all into? South Carolina doesn’t do a whole lot of that. The Gamecocks got into a fun fight with Ole Miss, but outside of that, the O hasn’t done anything over the past month mainly because the offensive line isn’t getting the job done. The backfield isn’t getting time to work – USC leads the SEC in most tackles for loss allowed – the defense isn’t coming up with enough third down stops, and the defensive side isn’t doing its part with no pressure and few sacks. Here’s the thing, though – South Carolina isn’t producing because it’s not playing well. Kentucky isn’t getting a whole lot numbers-wise because that’s partly how it rolls. – CFN Experts Picks: College What’s Going To Happen The Kentucky defense is better than it seems. Getting ripped of at Alabama and Florida over a two-game span will screw anyone up – but there problems against Vanderbilt, too. South Carolina isn’t going to find its O this week, but it’ll hang around enough in a good four-quarter fight. Kentucky will have the ball more and do a better job of controlling the clock.

  19. Does Bobo stay on as the OC. Beamer keep anyone else from the old staff on board? Who would you like to see Beamer hire to the staff? Can Beamer hire much needed talented staff? My last though what do you think of this hiring? Can Beamer do it? Your confidence level at this time that Tanner is making the right choice? Lot's to talk about. I know nothing is signed but we know enough that we can inquire about the above topics.
  20. (Coaching search update for December 1st) We’re looking for the search to come to a head this weekend. Going into the week sources told us Ray Tanner plans to meet in person with Steve Sarkisian, Brian Johnson, Scott Satterfield and Billy Napier. Satterfield is the only one who doesn’t have a game this week. It looks like Napier will get the final interview. His Louisiana team is playing at Appalachian State Friday night, and a source said Monday Napier would not meet with Tanner any earlier than Saturday. The two already have conducted a phone interview. Napier does not plan to hang around the Carolinas after the game, so the meeting could take place in Louisiana, or perhaps in the Atlanta area were some interviews last week were held.. Tanner is eying the weekend to complete his interviews so that he can present his choice to the university president and the board chairman, so it stands to reason Napier will be the last candidate to meet with him.
  21. The Gamecock's coaching search also focusing on Big 12 coach 11/30/2020 A lot of the buzz from South Carolina’s coaching search has been centered around Oklahoma assistant head coach Shane Beamer, who reportedly fared well during his interview with the Gamecocks’ brass on Friday. However, it’s not a done deal that Beamer will be the next head coach at South Carolina. According to Clint Brewster of 247Sports.com, the Gamecocks’ other top candidate in their search is West Virginia head coach Neal Brown, who is nearing the end of his second season leading the Mountaineers. West Virginia is 5-3 so far this year, going 4-3 in Big 12 play. Justin Rowland of Rivals.com confirmed that South Carolina is “very interested” in Brown and would like to schedule an interview with him. Brown owns a 10-10 record with the Mountaineers, after he went 35-16 as the head coach at Troy from 2015-18 in his first stint as a college head coach. Although Brown has no previous ties to South Carolina, he has experience in the SEC. He played at Kentucky from 1998-2000 (before transferring to UMass to finish his career from 2001-02), and he was the Wildcats’ offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach from 2013-14. He left Kentucky to take the head-coaching job at Troy. The South Carolina job became open when the school fired Will Muschamp on Nov. 15. Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo has been serving as the Gamecocks’ interim head coach since then, losing to Missouri and Georgia the past two weeks.
