  1. Final Grade vs. App State Nov. 10, 2019 Offense Carolina football dropped a 20-15 game to Appalachian State it desperately needed Saturday night. Now with the Gamecocks moving to 4-6 on the season and there are many questions centered on Coach Will Muschamp and his staff’s future, it’s time to make the final grade here for the Gamecocks performance Saturday night.

  2. GAMECOCKFANATICS OFFICIAL PREVIEW & PREDICTION THREAD: South Carolina Gamecocks vs Appalachian State Mountaineers Who: Appalachian State Mountaineers (7-1, 4-1 Sunbelt Conference) vs South Carolina Gamecocks (4-5, 3-4 Southeastern Conference) When: Saturday November 9, 2019 Kick-off: 7:00 pm ET Where: Williams-Brice Stadium, Columbia, SC TV: ESPN2 The Gamecocks continue their home stand with their second straight night contest, as they take on a strong non-conference opponent in Appalachian State this Saturday night, televised on ESPN2. The Mountaineers come into the game just losing their top 25 ranking due to their upset loss to Sunbelt Conference rival Georgia Southern, but will still be a formidable opponent at 7-1. The Gamecocks meanwhile are coming off of an encouraging SEC victory over East Division rival Vanderbilt, and are still in the hunt for a season-ending bowl bid. The Coaches USC Gamecocks Head Coach: Will Muschamp (age 48), 4th year, 26-22 (54-43 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 ASU Mountaineers Head Coach: Eliah Drinkwich (age 50), 1st year, 7-1 Defensive Coordinator/Inside Linebackers: Ted Roof Associate Head Coach/Cornerbacks: Charlie Harbinson Assistant Head Coach/ Offensive Line: Shawn Clark Special Teams Coordinator: Erik Link Safeties: Greg Gasparato Running Backs: Garrett Riley Wide Receivers: Pat Washington Outside Linebackers: D.J. Smith Defensive Line: Anwar Stewart Tight Ends: Justin Watts The Series Match-up This year’s contest will be the 10th all-time between the two programs, going back to their first encounter in 1972. The two teams played regularly back in the Independent era of the Gamecock program, including several games in the late 1980s that featured face-offs between the Gamecocks’ head coach Joe Morrison, and the man who would succeed him in then-App State head coach Sparky Woods. But the this will be the first time both programs have squared off against each other since 1988, before the Gamecocks joined the SEC. The Gamecocks hold a commanding 8-1 series lead, losing their lone game to the Mountaineers 39-34 in 1975. This year’s contest may be the most difficult one yet for the South Carolina, as Appalachian State have moved up from the FCS ranked to join the FBS mid-major Sunbelt Conference, and has found consistent success at that level. Key Match-ups For The Game Appalachian State comes in with an impressive overall record, but they do not play in a very competitive conference, nor play against very competitive opponents. Their biggest claim to fame this season is their 34-31 win against in-state rival and ACC member North Carolina, the same team that South Carolina lost to 24-20 in our season opener. Otherwise, the opponents the Mountaineers have played thus far have a combined record of 29-38, with only Louisiana and Georgia Southern having winning records at this point. GSU defeated App. State. Despite this, USC currently is another opponent for ASU with a losing record in 2019, something we hope to change very quickly. The biggest offensive weapons for App. State start with their junior QB Zac Thomas. Thomas is not a very prolific passer, averaging just less than 200 yards per game, but he’s efficient, completing 63% of his attempts for 14 touchdowns against only 3 picks. His WR targets are also not prolific but they are a-plenty: juniors Corey Sutton, Thomas Hennigan, and Malik Williams all average under 60 receiving yards per game – there’s only one receiver in the Sunbelt thus far averaging more than 80 per game – but they are all 50+ YPG guys, and will force our secondary to play honestly all game long. The biggest offensive impact player is junior RB Darrynton Evans, who is 3rd in the Sunbelt in YPG at right at 100 per game through 8 games, with 10 rushing touchdowns. Evans is supported by Jr. Marcus Williams and Thomas, who both average around 7-8 carries and 40 yds per game, and they have 8 rushing touchdowns between them. Thomas is averaging north of 5 yards per carry, so our front 7 will have to keep an eye on him on the ground. On defense, the Mountaineers are among the top 3-4 in their conference in most categories. Their top defensive players are junior DL Demetrius Taylor, who leads the team with 5.0 QB sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss. He’s the big bad guy on the Mountaineer defensive line we’ll have to contain. Second on the defense is senior linebacker Akeem Davis-Gaither, who leads App. State in total tackles, is second behind Taylor in TFL with 9.0, and is tied with several other Mountaineers for 2nd behind Taylor in sacks, with 2.5. Sophomore defensive back Shaun Jolly leads Appalachian State with 3 interceptions, but no one else on the team has more than 1 pick. Not a big turnover-producing team, the Mountaineers as a team only has 6 interceptions, good for a tie for 7th place in the Sunbelt Conference. But they lead the Sunbelt in Pass Defense. South Carolina Will Win If Appalachian State is a solid team, and can defeat Power 5 opponents who are struggling to execute. The advantages are on our side with the game being played in Williams-Brice. The Gamecocks need to bring the physical, SEC style defense that Coach Muschamp and staff have been trying to establish as our identity. The secondary will need to stay strong on the App. State receivers, and the Gamecock defensive line needs to dominate the line of scrimmage. The rushing attack is the strength of the Mountaineer offense, with 21 rushing touchdowns, but plays off of one primary back in Evans. If the Gamecocks rush defense can contain Evans the same way they did to Vanderbilt’s Ke’Shawn Vaughn (gained 87 yards on 20 carries, but 0 touchdowns), then we will control App. State’s offense, but they are more stable at the QB position than Vanderbilt was in our game. But if our defense can utilize our superior talent depth and physicality, and our secondary doesn’t give up the big pass play bomb, we’ll wear the Mountaineers down and pull away. Appalachian State Will Win If The Mountaineers have a balanced offense that relies on the strong rushing game of Evans, and the big pass play once opposing defenses are lulled into sleep. This mid-major team is good enough to catch power 5 teams looking past them, and at 4-5 with Texas A&M and Clemson left on the schedule, the Gamecocks cannot afford to do that this week. If the Mountaineers are able to jump out to an early lead, they will silence the pro-Gamecock crowd, and force South Carolina to play catch-up, and give themselves a confidence boost that will carry them to a victory..

  7. Gamecocks opens as more than two-touchdown favorite against Vanderbilt Gamecocks coming off a dishearting upset loss against Tennessee on the road. Now the Gamecocks come home as a heavy favorite against the Vanderbilt Commodores. Will Muschamp’s squad opened as a 16-point favorite against a Derek Mason-led team that has struggled through much of this season. The over-under is 52. Gamecocks stand at 3-5 and fall to 2-4 in the SEC, while the Commodores are 2-5 and 1-3, off a bye following an upset of Missouri. The Gamecocks are 4-4 against the spread, while the Vandy is 1-6. The Gamecocks have won 10 in a row in the series dating back to 2008, when the Gamecocks had 100 more yards but turned it over three times. Last year’s matchup was one of Gamecocks best games of the season, as the Gamecocks held down an efficient Commodores attack in a comfortable win.
  8. Gamecocks miss out on golden opportunity Saturday, now time to move forward after the loss Oct. 21, 2019 Gamecock lost the chance Saturday at what would have been a pretty special moment. Gamecocks cannot let the hangover turn into something more damaging to affect the season. Gamecocks had the lead into the fourth quarter against a top-10 team is very a good spot to be in. Doing so with the ball is better. But as we all know, it’s far, far from a locked-in game. (VIEW ARTICLE)
  9. Coach Muschamp Sunday evening teleconference notes & audio Oct. 20, 2019 Muschamp: Dowdle had MRI at 2:00 PM today, results not back yet, Turner has a hamstring bothering him. Jamel Cook has been dismissed from the team. Muschamp: Did talk to SEC commissioner and the head of officiating yesterday about the work of the officials in yesterday's game. Muschamp: They allowed only two explosive plays on defense until the fourth quarter and felt good about that. Muschamp: His guys competed hard, proud of effort, had their chances but didn't get it done. Have to improve in passing game in a number of areas, have to narrow down to find what they can do well in the passing game. Muschamp: They need to find some stuff that Hilinski can do better in the pass game. They did drop balls yesterday and not run some routes correctly. Audio: Coach Muschamp

  16. GAMECOCKFANATICS OFFICIAL PREVIEW & PREDICTION THREAD: Kentucky vs South Carolina Who: Kentucky Wildcats (2-2, 0-2) vs South Carolina Gamecocks (1-3, 0-2) When: Saturday September 28th, 2019 Kick-off: 7:30 pm ET Where: Williams-Brice Stadium, Columbia, SC TV: SEC Network The Gamecocks return home to Williams-Brice Stadium this Saturday and host the Kentucky Wildcats for a game that was certainly marked on the calendar before the season, at least for the Gamecocks and their fans. South Carolina will hope to turn around its fortunes for 2019 as well as break a current five-game streak in the rivalry series that has the Gamecocks on the losing side, and defeat the Wildcats for the first time since 2013. The Coaches USC Gamecocks Head Coach: Will Muschamp (age 48), 4th year, 23-20 (51-41 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 Kentucky Gamecocks Head Coach: Mark Stoops (age 52), 7th year, 38-41 Assistant Head Coach (Offense)/Running Backs: Eddie Gran Co-Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks: Darin Hinshaw Defensive Coordinator/Outside Linebackers: Brad White Associate Head Coach/Tight Ends/Recruiting Coordinator/NFL Liaison: Vince Marrow Offensive Line: John Schlarman Defensive Backs: Steve Clinkscale Special Teams Coordinator/Defensive Backs: Dean Hood Wide Receivers: Michael Smith Defensive Line: Derrick Leblanc Inside Linebackers: Jon Sumrall The Series Match-up South Carolina and Kentucky have squared off a total of 30 times with the Gamecocks holding a 17-12-1 advantage. Kentucky however has had the upper hand of late, owning a current active win streak of 5 games that South Carolina would dearly love to end this season. The five wins are the longest stretch of consecutive wins in the series for the Wildcats – the Gamecocks hold the longest win streak overall in the series, with a 10-game win streak running from 2000 through the 2009 season. Key Match-ups For The Game Team Unit Comparisons are as follows (National CFB Rankings): Pass Offense vs Defense USC – 62nd Pass O UK – 85th Pass D UK: 70th Pass O USC: 116th Pass D Rush Offense vs Defense USC: 47th Run O UK: 75th Run D UK: 59th Run O USC: 68th Run D Scoring Offense vs Defense USC: 57th Scoring O UK: 61st Scoring D UK: 85th Scoring O USC: 82nd Scoring D Total Offense vs Defense USC: 50th Total O UK: 78th Total D UK: 68th Total O USC: 100th Total D USC edges UK in most offensive stats, but only slightly in most. Mostly it is a wash here. But offenses do not play opposing offenses in football. In defense however, Kentucky edges South Carolina in most defensive stats, and perhaps just based on flat rankings, by a larger degree in all but Run Defense. Despite UK having the better total defense numbers, USC has allowed fewer yards per play on defense than UK has, and both have allowed same # of opponent TDs (13), but USC has allowed 8 FGs to UK allowing only 3. The big thing to possibly note on paper I guess, is that South Carolina’s SEC opponents of Alabama and Missouri are pretty much across the statistical board better offensive and defensive opponents than Kentucky’s conference opponents Florida and Mississippi State has thus far been. And the Gamecocks season-opening opponent North Carolina has to be a better opponent all around than either Toledo or Eastern Michigan – the Wildcats’ other non-conference opponents – have been for them. So despite the level of opposing talent being tougher for USC than it has been for UK, the statistical averages are not that far off between the two teams. The biggest matchup areas of interest in my opinion for this game: #1 the South Carolina run offense versus the Kentucky run defense. Kentucky allowed 190 rushing YPG and 6 rushing TDs in 2 games against SEC opponents, versus just 115 YPG and only 3 total rush TDs in their 2 non-conference games. South Carolina has a deep RB group that has been very effective when they were given the opportunity. This game may present more of that opportunity as a need, than past games have yet to do. Key Match-up #1: The Gamecock run game needs to have a strong presence this Saturday, with the O-line blocking well. If the run game can get going, this may be an opportunity to control the game on offense and take pressure off of the Gamecock QB, whether it would be the battered Hilinski, or the back-up Joyner. The #2 Key Match-up area – which will be for Kentucky’s advantage – will be their passing offense against our passing defense. The Gamecock Secondary is struggling mightily right now, and the depth there has gotten thinner with Jamyest Williams opting for the transfer portal. What makes this the 2nd-best Key and not the 1st, is that Kentucky’s replacement for their injured starter Terry Wilson – Jr. Sawyer Smith – has not been as consistent a passer for the Wildcats as Wilson was. Smith thus far has completed 50% of his passes with 4 TDs and 4 INTs in 3 games. So perhaps Kentucky may not be as equipped to exploit the Gamecock’s pass D as well as South Carolina may be able to take advantage of the Wildcat run D. Key Match-up #2: The Gamecock defense – especially the Secondary – needs to improve on coverage and containment, and eliminate the few key targets for UK QB Smith to pass to. The Gamecock DL also could help their cause by applying pressure on Smith. Key Players Once again this game will feature the QBs for each team, but for slightly different reasons. Both teams have lost their preseason projected starters at QB, and will rely on reserves for the rest of the season. In South Carolina’s case, their reserve in Ryan Hilinski has looked stellar for the first two games, but struggled in the last game against Missouri. He’s come up a bit bruised and dinged particularly his elbow, and more rest during Game Week preparations are the order of the day. Perhaps he may not dress for the game – in that case, #3 QB Dakereon Joyner would be the one to step up for his first career start. In either case however, this game is as much of a “must win” scenario for USC as there will be one for the rest of this season. Also on offense, the RB tandems for both teams – for South Carolina, Rico Dowdle and Tavien Feaster, and for Kentucky Asim Rose and Kavosiey Smoke – will be key in this game. For USC’s sake, Dowdle and Feaster will need to have strong games, and the Gamecock front 7 need to contain the UK duo from exploding for large gains, in order to give the secondary a better focus for containing the Wildcat passing game. One UK WR target for them would be their leading receiver, Lynn Bowden Jr. Bowden Jr. has 27 receptions on the season – his nearest competitor on UK has 10 catches – and he’s the bonafied go-to receiver for Smith and the Wildcats. Keep him covered and hamper his impact on the game, and the Gamecock defense goes a LONG way in containing the UK passing game. On defense, South Carolina will once again rely on DT Javon Kinlaw – the current SEC leader in QB sacks on the season, and 6th in tackles for loss (TFL). Also DE Aaron Sterling – 9th in sacks and tied with Kinlaw at 6th in TFL, will also factor in. Both DJ Wonnum and JJ Enagbare have been on the fringe of SEC leaders in sacks and TFL – this Saturday would be a great time for both to take a next step forward. And the Gamecock entire Secondary Unit – but especially Jaycee Horn and Israel Mukuamu – can make a huge difference in this game with strong efforts. South Carolina Will Win If If the team enters the game in Williams-Brice full of energy and executes on defense, swarms to the ball and sticks close to the Wildcat WRs, the defensive front is able to apply pressure on Smith, and the Gamecock offense is led by an effective QB (whoever it may be) and a strong rushing offense that the staff doesn’t give up on, and we have a strong chance to win this game. Kentucky Will Win If If the Gamecock defense continues to stumble, and the Wildcat offense is able to gash the D with huge gains, score easily and consistently, and force the Gamecock offense to once again play a rushing catch-up behind shaky QB play, Kentucky will be able to run away with the game.

  17. Gamecocks stumble and tumble to 1-3 with a 34-14 loss to Missouri on the road Sept. 21, 2019 COLUMBIA, MO. - The man most responsible for any kind of renewed hope in South Carolina’s 2019 season was QB Ryan Hilinski struggled against the Missouri Tigers who rode their defense to a 34-14 win before a crowd of 50,012 on Saturday afternoon.

  18. Chris and the gang has a great website along with his informative and enjoyable podcast so make sure to visit Enjoy the show fanatics!!! SEPTEMBER 20, 2019 by NOAH PATHEJA / LINK: THESPURSUPSHOW Three Bold Predictions For Gamecocks vs. Missouri South Carolina(1-2) is coming off a hard fought loss to Alabama last week while Missouri(2-1) is coming off of a dominant win against Southeast Missouri State. South Carolina has a few things they need to fix if they want to make a bowl game this year, but the offense under Ryan Hilinski looks promising. This is also a game that Muschamp has to win if he wants the hot seat to cool down a little bit. Here are my three bold predictions for tomorrow: Kelly Bryant will have only one passing touchdown South Carolina’s defense gave up 444 passing yards and five passing touchdowns against Alabama at home last weekend. The secondary took responsibility for their disappointing performance, and I believe they’ll make the right adjustments to slow down Kelly Bryant. The biggest threat to South Carolina’s secondary is tight end Albert Okwuegbunam, who has the most receiving touchdowns for the Tigers this year. I think South Carolina’s secondary is too talented to let Kelly Bryant dominate this game. Rico Dowdle will rush for over 100 yards again South Carolina has really struggled to establish a run game under Muschamp. Last week, Dowdle had 12 carries for 102 yards against Alabama’s defense and he clearly established himself as the top running back on the roster. It confuses me that Ryan Hilinski threw it 57 times when Dowdle was getting it done on the ground. Missouri has the #70 rushing defense in the country, and I expect Dowdle to run all over them. This is also Ryan Hilinski’s first road game, and it’ll be interesting to see how comfortable he is. South Carolina will score on every red zone trip The Gamecocks are struggling again with red zone offense. On the last drive of the first half last week, South Carolina had four chances to score from four yards out. The first play was a run, and Dowdle got the offense to the one yard line. The next three pays consisted of two incomplete passes and a botched run. I’m willing to bet that the coaching staff worked on red zone offense in practice this week because South Carolina put up 459 yards of offense last week and only scored 23 points. A lot of that has to do with red zone struggles. Conclusion These are BOLD predictions for tomorrow. I have to emphasize it now because most of these aren’t supposed to come true. It would be great if they did, but I can’t control the game. I do expect a very exciting game against a division opponent. I’m also expecting South Carolina to beat the Tigers, 21-10.
  19. Coach Will Muschamp weekly notes & quotes Sept. 10, 2019 | From USC Sports Information | GCF Staff Report Head Coach Will Muschamp Quotes Opening Statement "Great opportunity for our football team and our program. We've got a lot of respect for their program and obviously for Nick (Saban). Offensively, it all starts with the quarterback. Tua (Tagovailoa) is an outstanding player, very accurate with the football - close to 80 percent this year as far as his completion percentage. He has legs. He can create off-rhythm plays, as we say, that are very difficult to defend. (VIEW ARTICLE)
  20. Ryan Hilinski’s debut was just the beginning Sept. 08, 2019 His day was near as perfect as one could write it. He hit his first 12 passes. When it looked as if he was only feasting on short throws, he hit a 60-yard bomb for a touchdown. The team scored 70-plus points and posted its most yards ever. No it was not against Alabama, but you play whoever is in front of you that day. (VIEW ARTICLE)
  21. Game week 2: Talking Charleston Southern Buccaneers (Discussion Thread) Sept. 02, 2019 Next up comes the home opener with Charleston Southern (0-1) of the lower-tier Football Championship Subdivision. Will any other QBs — Ryan Hilinski or Dakereon Joyner — get a chance to play? Muschamp said those plans are yet to be finalized. “We’re evaluating everything right now moving forward,” Muschamp said. “We’ll know more as we move forward.” CSU fell by 33 points in its opener to Furman, making South Carolina’s next game — at least on paper — one that allows for reserve players to see field time. Michael Scarnecchia and Joyner, Bentley’s backups last season, finished USC’s rout of Chattanooga, the Gamecocks’ lone game against an FCS foe. Hilinski, a freshman and four-star prospect from California, beat Joyner for the No. 2 job last month. Asked when he’ll decide if anyone besides Bentley takes snaps against CSU, Muschamp said the staff would meet Sunday night. “We’ll move through that,” Muschamp said. “There’s a lot of variables with that. It wasn’t all one person (against UNC), I can assure you of that.” While QB evaluation continues, South Carolina will tweak its offensive line against the Buccaneers. Bentley was sacked three times against the Tar Heels and the Gamecocks gained just 34 rushing yards after halftime.bUSC, from left to right tackle, started Sadarius Hutcherson, Donell Stanley, Hank Manos, Eric Douglas, and Dylan Wonnum, in Charlotte. “We’re going to look at some different combinations,” Muschamp said. “I’m not ready to comment right now. We talked today as staff. We had practice (Sunday) and shuffled some guys around. We’ll continue to do that before Tuesday’s practice. ... We had too much penetration. INJURY REPORT Muschamp said Sunday night that cornerback A.J. Turner, receiver OrTre Smith, and safety J.T. Ibe — all potential starters or immediate backups — practiced Sunday after missing the North Carolina game with injuries. HURRICANE WATCH As Hurricane Dorian continues its threat toward the state, Muschamp said he and USC athletics director Ray Tanner has yet to discuss possible contingency plans for Saturday’s game. “The important thing is securing our coast and the people on the coast,” Muschamp said. “Whatever happens, happens. There’s nothing we can really control as far as those situations. Those decisions are in great hands.” Hurricane Florence caused South Carolina to cancel its 2018 game with Marshall.
  22. On the Gamecock defense. What is the problem from your point of view? Quick look back in UK 2017 and Gamecocks gave up a ton of yards. Look back to last year, Gamecocks were destroyed by UGA, UK, Mizzou, Ole Miss, A&M, Clemson, UVA and now UNC has done it with a freshman and add in their ground game to boot. What is the deal? What needs to change? Is it the players or the scheme? I will say Aaron Sterling needs to be a situational player only! Like to see the Gamecocks start JJ Engabare and let Ellis spell him and get Joe Anderson ready. Gamecocks need beef. Also, Jam Williams needs to be a ST only player and moved to offense. What you say?
  23. Jones: 'That's something that probably needed to happen Sept. 02, 2019 Deep within the bowels of Bank of America Stadium on Saturday night, South Carolina Gamecocks linebacker Ernest Jones offered a sobering take on the 24-20 loss to North Carolina. “We can’t really dwell on it now, it happened,” he said. “We’re going to learn from it. We’re going to be a great team. We’re going to be a good team. “That’s something that probably needed to happen.” Why is that? “I’m not sure. You’ve got to be – I guess I would say, humbled, sometimes,” Jones said. “That’s all I’ve got.” (VIEW ARTICLE) FREE 247SPORTS
