  1. With the Gamecocks adding 2 grad transfers, how will the two affect the 2020 roster Jan. 05, 2020 College football has some particular quirks when it comes to short- and long-range roster planning. Let's take a peek into future roster plans. First off a lot of players generally take two or three years to fully develop and grow into impact guys, meaning the timeline is in theory longer to get pieces in place. On the other, if a team suffers two bad years after a few seasons of success, it generally leads to a coaching change. (VIEW ARTICLE)
  2. Move in day for early enrollees Jan. 06, 2020 It’s move-in day in Columbia. The South Carolina football program is set to welcome in 10 early enrollees at the start of spring semester, including the likes of running back MarShawn Lloyd, quarterback Luke Doty and wide receiver Mike Wyman, among others. South Carolina has already posted Instagram or Twitter videos of the following players on campus: ▪ Doty ▪ Lloyd ▪ Wyman ▪ Offensive lineman Vershon Lee ▪ Offensive lineman Trai Jones ▪ Defensive back O’Donnell Fortune ▪ Junior college offensive lineman Jazston Turnetine ▪ Corner Dominick Hill ▪ Linebacker Mohamed Kaba
  3. Transfer QB Collin Hill talks expectations in QB competition Dec. 30, 2019, |GCF Staff Report In the short term, new Gamecock quarterback Collin Hill is focused on getting healthy. He is now just three months removed from surgery to repair his third torn ACL, which will for the moat part will keep him out for spring practice or maybe a slight chance of limit time. When he comes back full-go in the summer, the former Dorman High School star and Colorado State transfer plans to compete to play. (VIEW ARTICLE)

Muschamp expects & wants Joyner to be ‘huge part’ of Gamecocks offense going forward Dec. 30, 2019, | GCF Staff Report The question has lingered over Carolina‘s football program for the majority of the past two seasons.

  5. Will the fullback return to Gamecock offense and how will the position will be used January 01, 2020, | GCF Staff Report New offensive coordinator Mike Bobo seemed bemused that anyone brought up Adam Prentice at all in his introductory press conference.

  6. Will the fullback return to Gamecock offense and how will the position will be used January 01, 2020, | GCF Staff Report New offensive coordinator Mike Bobo seemed bemused that anyone brought up Adam Prentice at all in his introductory press conference. Bobo replied.. “You know who Adam Prentice is, huh?” Bobo said. Prentice is a football player with a rare position these days" fullback." The 6-foot, 236-pounder was a versatile blocking back in Bobo’s Colorado State offense, he is a former walk-on who played some fullback, some tight end and a few other roles all told. Bobo said back then he had not found a Prentice yet in watching film. This week he added Prentice as a grad transfer, the former CSU player announced Monday of this week. Bobo said. “If you’ve seen a lot of offenses that I’ve ran, we played with a fullback and had a two-back running game. Quite frankly, a lot of teams don’t defend a two-back game anymore because they’re defending spread. It’s something teams don’t practice all the time, the fits that you gotta fit as a defense vs. two-back.” The fullback has seemed to be a source of fascination and perhaps worry for Gamecocks fans. On one hand, the idea of trying to play traditional downhill football against other SEC teams that often bring more talent creates rattles Gamecocks nerves some. But in contrast, there’s often a suggestion of more under-center looks (especially in short-yardage) and a fullback on the goal line, not to mention references to the memory of Patrick DiMarco, a fullback in the mid-Spurrier era who grew into an NFL all-pro. This past season, The Gamecocks used running backs Mon Denson and Kevin Harris as short-yardage fullbacks as well as former walk-on linebacker Spencer Eason-Riddle as a blocking fullback. In Bobo’s experience, his fullbacks have tended to be walk-on linebackers who might not be fast enough or tight ends a little short on length. Bobo said. “I think you can find those guys. They’ve got to be unselfish guys. But you know, a guy like Prentice was a guy that was a little bit more than a sixth lineman. He could do a lot of stuff. He could play wing for us, he could insert, he can catch the ball. But I feel really good about some tight ends that we have on this team.” Prentice finished last season with seven catches for 44 yards and one carry for a yard. Bobo did say his offensive outlook has always been an evolving one, and that likely will continue. At Georgia, a slew of NFL tailbacks meant more traditional I-formation sets. At CSU, his offenses early on relied on three-receiver or two-tight end sets, but last year they ended up with more looks that had two backs and a tight end. He said he felt good about where the tight ends are and how they could be used at South Carolina, whether it be inserting as a lead blocker or creating some misdirection on zone runs (Prentice often did those things too). This week’s news means Bobo now has his man for the position. But he’d already had plans to install schemes that involved a fullback just in case. Bobo said just after his hiring. “That’s part of what spring practice is. “We’ll introduce all those schemes to our offense, our offensive line, our quarterback. We might not have the Prentice to do it and we might not run that scheme but will introduce it in case we do find one.”
  7. Muschamp expects & wants Joyner to be ‘huge part’ of Gamecocks offense going forward Dec. 30, 2019, | GCF Staff Report The question has lingered over Carolina‘s football program for the majority of the past two seasons. How best should the Gamecocks use sometimes-quarterback, slash-receiver Dakereon Joyner? To hear Muschamp tell it, the answer is often. Muschamp said. “Right now our offensive staff is going through those things and evaluating our talent and evaluating our personnel as we continue to fit the pieces moving forward offensively and what we’re going to look like, and he certainly is going to be a huge part of it, I can assure you that. Dak's season started with a choice and was besieged by injury and inconsistency. He never was able to fully settle at a position or play at 100 percent. Dak's year started with him losing a backup quarterback battle with freshman Ryan Hilinski. Unlike many blue-chip passers, he chose to stick around rather than seek a transfer. He addresses his role on the team head on with a message he’s still telling Muschamp and new offensive coordinator Mike Bobo. Muschamp said. “Exactly what Dakereon said to Mike and the conversations that I have, ‘What do I need to do to help the team? "I want to get on the field and help the football team win." That task last year involved playing receiver, something Joyner had never done before. The plan to be a full-time pass catcher lasted just one game, as Jake Bentley was lost to an injury, and Joyner was pressed into backup quarterback work again. He went through the year playing both positions. A nagging hamstring cost him practice time and limited him to emergency QB duty, which at one point involved stepping in and leading the team through most of the second half and overtime in the upset of No. 3 Georgia. Then he took a hard hit against Texas A&M and missed the season finale with a concussion. His finished with 168 passing yards, 107 rushing and 46 receiving. The one-time top recruit in the state had insisted he wanted to play quarterback early in his career. He was a prolific high school player at Fort Dorchester and a winner of the state’s Mr. Football award. But now his message going forward has been something far different. Bobo said. “He’s a guy that wants to do whatever he can to help this football team. That was the first words out of his mouth. It wasn’t, ‘I need to play quarterback, I need to do this.’ It was, ‘Coach, I want to help this football team. I want to do whatever it takes to help this team be successful.’ And just love the look in that kid’s eye. Excited about seeing him this offseason in offseason conditioning and getting into spring ball.”
  8. Transfer QB Collin Hill talks expectations in QB competition Dec. 30, 2019, |GCF Staff Report In the short term, new Gamecock quarterback Collin Hill is focused on getting healthy. He is now just three months removed from surgery to repair his third torn ACL, which will for the moat part will keep him out for spring practice or maybe a slight chance of limit time. When he comes back full-go in the summer, the former Dorman High School star and Colorado State transfer plans to compete to play. Hill had this to say. “I’m just gonna be completely honest, I think as a player you want to play mean, that’s what you do everything for. That’s why you work so hard. So yeah, you want to be the starter.. You want to be the guy. That’s why you go through all the stuff you do. You know, I’m a competitor and I definitely want to play.” One of the questions that popped up when he announced his transfer was how he’d compete with incumbent sophomore starter Ryan Hilinski and incoming freshman Luke Doty, both former Elite 11 passers. These days, it’s not uncommon for grad transfers to join teams with a reasonable expectation of not starting, situations such as Gunnar Hoak going to Ohio State behind Justin Fields. But Hill isn’t treating this like a first step to a coaching career or anything of that nature. Hill said added. Gamecock’s offensive coordinator Mike Bobo “wasn’t out there guaranteeing me anything or nothing like that. But really just told me once I’m healthy that I got an opportunity. We’re going to compete. That’s what we did at CSU. It was always a competition and, you know, that’s all you can ask for.” He said Bobo, his coach at CSU who came to Columbia last month after being let go with the Rams, didn’t give Hill any kind of pitch or sell job. He just said it was a change to come home. Hill went through the coaching transition in Fort Collins before ultimately deciding to leave. He spoke to the staff, even had floated the idea of coming to South Carolina before putting his name in the transfer portal. Soon after he did, Bobo called. Bobo told Hill he had expected the QB to end up at South Carolina out of high school. At Colorado State Hill threw for 3,323 yards, 23 scores and 11 interceptions in parts of three seasons at Colorado State. He took over as starter after his first game as a true freshman, but injured his knee after five games. His most durable year saw him play in 10 games in 2018. Hilinski in his first year has thrown for 2,357 yards, 11 scores and five interceptions, but had some struggles late in the season playing on a partially torn meniscus with a receiving group hammered by injury. Hill was visiting his girlfriend in Phoenix when the announcement went public and was actually in attendance at the Fiesta Bowl between Clemson and Ohio State. He warned a few folks beyond family back home that the news was coming, he said. The group included some old friends, his high school coach, Dave Gutshall, and a favorite teacher from high school. Hill said. “She’s a huge South Carolina fan, so she was she’s really excited.”
  9. Why Jordan Burch didn’t sign yet with the Gamecocks "In his own words" Dec. 28, 2019, | GCF Staff Report Jordan Burch didn’t sign with the Gamecocks yet because he wants to take part in his school’s National Signing Day ceremony in February, he told reporters Saturday as he checked in for this year’s Under Armour All-America Game. The five-star defensive lineman from Hammond School also said he’s heard from other colleges since his Dec. 18 commitment to the Gamecocks. He chose USC over LSU, Clemson, Georgia and Alabama. Burch told media members in Orlando that coaches from the other schools are still in contact with him but he hasn’t responded. Burch said LSU finished second and Clemson came in third. Burch said Saturday. “I feel like it was neck and neck until it came down to the commitment day. Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp who cannot speak directly about Burch since he didn’t sign a National Letter of Intent was asked on the early signing day about concern that a committed, but unsigned, player might change his mind. Muschamp said. “Absolutely not, I’m excited about them.” Burch told reporters Saturday he chose the Gamecocks because he felt like a “big priority” for the Gamecocks and would have a chance to be a key contributor. Burch said. “They have seniors leaving and I feel like I can go in and play that (defensive end) position. He didn’t rule out taking visits to other colleges in January but also said he hadn’t thought it yet. Burch and fellow Hammond defensive lineman Alex Huntley are both committed to the Gamecocks. The traditional National Signing Day is Feb. 5. It was already known that Burch wasn’t going to enroll at his school of choice in January. Huntley also had publicly stated that he would sign with USC in February. Hammond teammates Jackson Muschamp and Saul Diaz also are expected to sign at the school ceremony. Another Skyhawk, Fabian Goodman, is walking on to South Carolina. The Under Armour game is Thursday at Camping World Stadium in Orlando. It will be televised on ESPN2 at 6 p.m. The 6-foot-5, 275-pound Burch is considered the No. 5 recruit in the country by 247Sports Composite (factoring in all rankings), No. 5 overall by ESPN and No. 8 by Rivals. He is the highest ranked prospect from the state of South Carolina since Clowney was No. 1 in the country in the Class of 2011. Many recruiting experts think he has a good shot of playing in the NFL. 247Sports’ Charles Power compares Burch to San Diego defensive end Joey Bosa, while 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong compares him to Jeffrey Simmons, who played at Mississippi State and is now with the Tennessee Titans.

  11. Muschamp telling signees ‘skill positions players need to be ready to go right away' Dec. 21, 2019, | GCF Staff Report This is what happens when you lose your top wide receiver, your top tight end and your top running backs.

  12. Muschamp telling signees ‘skill positions players need to be ready to go right away' Dec. 21, 2019, | GCF Staff Report This is what happens when you lose your top wide receiver, your top tight end and your top running backs. Muschamp know that the first day of the early signing period becomes time to reload and fast. The Gamecocks 2019 season was hardly one to remember, with a 4-8 record and no bowl game. But the Gamecocks did lose some solid offensive weapons in receiver Bryan Edwards, tight end Kyle Markway and running backs Tavien Feaster and Rico Dowdle. Without them and with a new offensive coordinator in Mike Bobo the unit that trots out Sept. 5, 2020 against Coastal Carolina is likely to feature a lot of unfamiliar faces, most of them sophomores or even freshmen. Bobo acknowledged this as much when he was introduced to the media Monday. Bobo said. “Quite frankly, you lose two running backs, you lose two receivers ... so, we’re going to have some young guys playing at those positions, but I do believe you can have young guys come in and play at the running back position and the receiver position and be successful early on." At the time, Bobo couldn’t mention specific names as to who would likely be taking on the biggest roles as freshmen. But with the start of the early signing period Wednesday, Muschamp could, and he reiterated what his OC said about needing young skill players like running back signees MarShawn Lloyd and Rashad Amos to step up early. Muschamp said. “No doubt, and I think that No. 1, you look at the running back position. Kevin Harris and Deshaun Fenwick are the only two scholarship guys we got on the team. So MarShawn is mid-year (enrollee), Rashad’s not and then we want to sign another one in the class, which will obviously not be a mid-year enrollee. So we’ll have three scholarship running backs that‘ll be competing in the spring, and those guys that come in June need to be ready to go.” At wide receiver, four-star wideouts Mike Wyman and Rico Powers Jr. officially joined the Gamecocks on Wednesday. They’ll be joining a position group with more depth than the running backs but which also struggled to provide quarterback Ryan Hilinski with reliable second options behind Edwards. “When you lose a guy like Bryan Edwards, that’s been a proven playmaker for you, I think we got more than capable guys. Xavier Legette comes on for us, Shi Smith comes on for us, Randrecous Davis is gonna be healthy for the first time in two years. So I certainly think that we got some guys. OrTre Smith wasn’t healthy all last year,” Muschamp said. “So we got some pieces of the puzzle here, and certainly to be able to add more guys to that, there’s no doubt about it, they’ll have every opportunity in the world.” At tight end, the loss of Markway is somewhat offset by the anticipated return of Nick Muse, who tore his ACL late in the season. And in addition, the Gamecocks added a pair of intriguing prospects at that spot in Jaheim Bell and Eric Shaw, two tall, athletic players who could be dynamic pass-catchers, Muschamp said. Relying on freshmen isn’t all that unusual for Muschamp and the Gamecocks it’s something they’ve been forced to do over the past few years at different positions of need. Muschamp finish off by saying. “I tell (everyone) in the recruiting process, I never promise anybody playing time. But I’ll promise you this if you’re good enough, you’ll play. If you’re the best, you’ll start. And we’ve played more freshmen in four years than anybody in the country. “You look at last year’s team and you look at the success of Jammie Robinson and Zacch Pickens, two freshmen All-Americans, that contributed a lot to this football team and were really good players for us, but even past that, Ryan Hilinski, Jakai Moore, Jaylen Nichols, you have a lot of guys, Jahmar Brown, John Dixon, all freshmen that contributed in a major way to our football team. But they’ll have every opportunity in the world to step on the field.”
  13. RB MarShawn Lloyd has his new Jersey number as a Gamecock, his new number is? Dec. 20, 2019, | GCF Staff Report In high school, 5-star Gamecock running back signee MarShawn Lloyd wore a No. 2 jersey. He’s moving up to No. 1 when he joins the Gamecocks. He put up an Instagram story post that said “Rocking that #1 this year” and put on Twitter “Can’t wait to rock that Uno.” In many of his photos from visits to the school, he was in a No. 1 jersey. The Gamecocks have not had a tailback wear No. 1 since at least 2007, likely longer. Deebo Samuel wore it on offense from 2015 to 2018. Before that it was Damiere Byrd, Ace Sanders and Alshon Jeffery. No offensive player wore it this year. As a senior, Lloyd ran for 1,300 yards and 15 touchdowns for Washington, D.C. power DeMatha. He is expected to step into the void at the Gamecock running back spot that is losing its top three rushers and another former starter in A.J. Turner.

  15. Gamecocks get there new strength coach Paul Jackson from Ole Miss. Dec. 17, 2019 South Carolina announced Paul Jackson, formerly of Ole Miss, as the new strength & condition coach Tuesday. He was approved by the Executive and Governance Committee and the full board is set to approve him in the afternoon. He is set to earn $450,000 a year for two years. It would tie him for fifth-highest salary for SEC strength coaches. He will have a $100,000 buyout in Year 1, $50,000 in Year 2. Jackson will replace Jeff Dillman, who was one of Muschamp’s early hires after arriving in Columbia and had worked with him during his time at Florida. Dillman and the Gamecocks program parted ways the day after the 2019 season ended. (VIEW ARTICLE)
  16. Muschamp said. The decision to demote McClendon and fire Werner ‘difficult’ but necessary Dec. 16, 2019, | GCF Staff Report As soon as the season ended with a 38-3 loss to Clemson, Coach Will Muschamp promised changes were coming and he didn’t take long to move on the changes. The very next day, news leaked out that offensive coordinator Bryan McClendon was being relieved of play-calling duties and quarterbacks coach Dan Werner and strength and conditioning coach Jeff Dillman were being let go entirely. McClendon has a reputation as a strong recruiter, and before he was promoted to OC in 2017, he was considered a rising star in the coaching profession. His deal with South Carolina is set to pay him $1 million through 2020. If he stays at USC and isn’t named co-offensive coordinator, that would make him one of the highest-paid non-coordinator assistants in college football. Speaking at the introduction of new offensive coordinator Mike Bobo on Monday, Muschamp said he “was working through” titles and positions for McClendon moving forward, but praised how he handled the demotion. Muschamp said. “He’s handled it like he handles everything — first class,” Muschamp added. “Bryan’s an outstanding football coach, he’s an outstanding receivers coach, he’s an outstanding offensive coordinator, you know, and there were some things that were out of Bryan’s control this year that occurred on our offensive football team that he had nothing to do with, and that made it very difficult to be as productive as we needed to be. But he understands the profession, and that’s part of it. But he’s going to be an outstanding offensive coordinator again, he’s going to be a head coach ... he’s going to be really successful in everything he does. Still, when Bobo was asked how much control he’ll have over the offense, he seemed to indicate that he’ll be the primary person in charge of the offense. Bobo said. “There’s one head coach and that’s coach Muschamp, and, you know, we’re gonna put together a plan for us to be successful. But I’m an offensive coordinator and he’s trusted me into getting our staff ready, on the same page and our staff ready to teach our concepts to our players who go out and execute them on game day. Accountability is going to be on me. “There’s gonna be certain things that as a head coach that you’re gonna demand of your program, and I think that’s being physical and tough, but as far as, being worried about coach getting on the headphones and saying run this or run that, I’m not worried about that at all. ... He hired me to do a job, and that’s what I’m gonna do.” As for the departures of Werner and Dillman, Muschamp offered more praise but said the moves were necessary for the program to advance. A new strength and conditioning coach is expected to be announced Wednesday after the USC board of trustees approves the contract. Muschamp said. “We’re still working through that process, and I think those are all difficult decisions. At the end of the day, I’ve got to make decisions on what I think is best for our organization. We talk to our players about it all the time, and it’s the same with our staff, and those are the decisions. And none of them are easy — very difficult. Those are two professionals and outstanding men, and I hate that sometimes those things have to happen.” Werner was hired by the Gamecocks in January 2018 after stints at Ole Miss and Alabama, as well as UNLV, Louisiana Tech, James Madison, Murray State, and Miami. He oversaw Jake Bentley’s career year in 2018 and was an integral piece in Ryan Hilinski’s recruitment to Carolina, as well as that of commit Luke Doty. Dillman, who spent four years with Muschamp at South Carolina and three at Florida, has also had stops in his career at Alabama, LSU, Appalachian State, and IMG Academy. According to USA Today’s database of coaching salaries, he was the 12th highest-paid strength coach in the country in 2019. The Gamecocks’ offense was decimated by injuries in 2019, while the defense was hit hard in 2018, though Muschamp repeatedly defended Dillman and his training program by saying most of the injuries were not to “soft tissue,” where the conditioning program is focused.

  18. Updates on injured Gamecocks and their recovery schedules Dec. 16, 2019, | GCF Staff Report Gamecocks won’t again take the field until late February. The Gamecocks still have several players who are on the mend. At least four Gamecock players were lost for the year or at the very least needed surgery for injuries of note. Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp updated the status of those players on Monday at a press conference to introduce new offensive coordinator Mike Bobo. ▪ Safety Jaylin Dickerson, who was lost in the summer to a hip issue, is expected to be cleared for spring practice. ▪ Both tight end Nick Muse (torn ACL) and quarterback Ryan Hilinski (meniscus scope) had their procedures and they went will. ▪ Defensive lineman Devontae Davis, who was lost in the preseason to a Lisfranc injury in AUgust, is expected to be cleared for spring. He will possibly be limited in the offseason program. ▪ Former walk-on linebacker Spencer Eason-Riddle will delay surgery for a torn ACL until Jan. 6. He’ll be going there as part of the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team for his charitable work.

  22. Ray Tanner talk’s Muschamp deal & adding Mike Bobo to the staff Dec. 12, 2019, The State contributed to the article, | GCF Staff Report Carolina athletic director Ray Tanner was not present for Tuesday’s board meeting that saw the university change the contracts of football coach Will Muschamp and assistant Thomas Brown, while also adding Mike Bobo to the staff. He was instead in New York at an ESPN/SEC meeting. But he delivered a little information on what came together with some of the moves made. The changes to Muschamp’s deal take $3 million off the total value of his deal, turning down an automatic annual $200,000 raise in each of the coming five years. It also reduced a potential buyout next year by more than $2 million. Tanner said that was a Muschamp brainchild. “The idea was coach Muschamp’s idea, not my suggestion,” Tanner said on the Board of Trustees conference call. “Not my urging. He came to me with this proposal that he would like to do this. He would like to offer this. And that’s how I felt about it. Certainly I agreed to his suggestion, and that’s where we are today.” Carolina added at least $700,000 in salary to the staff on Tuesday, as new QB coach Mike Bobo is paid $500,000 more than his predecessor, Dan Werner, and running backs coach Thomas Brown got a $200,000 raise. Former offensive coordinator, another role Bobo will take, Bryan McClendon remains on staff at $1 million a year. Werner is set to be paid up to $700,000 in 2020 owing to a two-year contract. Tanner also laid out the resume for Bobo, who reunites with a former Georgia teammate in Muschamp and several of his former players and coworkers in Brown and McClendon. “Mike Bobo recently was the head coach at Colorado State and had spent a number of years at Georgia as an undergrad quarterback, (eight) years as offensive coordinator,” Tanner said. “With some extremely impressive numbers since he’s been involved in (the) offense both at Colorado State and at Georgia. “If you look at his statistics, you’ll certainly be impressed with the offensive output that he’s had over the years.”

The Hokies will visit Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia on Sept. 16, 2034, while the Gamecocks will make the return trip to Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, Va. for a contest on Sept. 15, 2035. "By adding Virginia Tech to our future football schedules, it gives us a quality opponent with a regional matchup," said South Carolina Athletics Director Ray Tanner. "Coach Muschamp and I are looking to fill our non-conference schedule with teams that would be appealing for our fans and supplement our already-tough Southeastern Conference slate with opponents that our squad will be excited to play. I hope we can make more of these announcements in the near future." The teams, both former members of the Southern Conference, have met on the gridiron 20 times previously, but have not played each other since the 1991 season. South Carolina holds an 11-7-2 lead in the all-time series that dates back to 1905, including a 5-2-1 advantage when the teams have played in both Columbia and in Blacksburg. Virginia Tech has won three of the four games when they have met at a "neutral" site - once in Roanoke, Va. (1905) and three times in Richmond, Va. (1925-27). The Gamecocks are undefeated in their last six contests with the Hokies, posting a 4-0-2 record when they played in six-consecutive seasons from 1986-1991. Carolina posted a 28-21 win in their last meeting, which took place on Sept. 21, 1991 in Columbia. The Gamecocks also posted a win in their last trip to Blacksburg, a 35-24 victory on Sept. 22, 1990. Last week, the Gamecocks announced a home-and-home series with another Atlantic Coast Conference team in Miami, hosting the Hurricanes in 2026, then traveling to south Florida for a contest at Hard Rock Stadium in 2027.
