  3. 2 Ex-Gamecock quarterback's strike gold with portal moves Oct. 18, 2021 Over in the Big Ten, QB Ryan Hilinski worked his way to becoming Northwestern’s starting quarterback after not playing in the Wildcats’ first two games. The former Gamecock has started Northwestern’s last three matchups and has helped the Wildcats improve to 3-3 after their 1-2 start. QB Jake Bentley has continued to have one of the best seasons of his six-year collegiate career with the Sun Belt Conference’s South Alabama. He’s led the Jaguars to a 4-2 record off a career-best 68.2% completion percentage, totaling a conference-leading 1,505 yards, seven touchdowns and two interceptions. Bentley’s 389-yard performance in South Alabama’s 41-14 win over Georgia Southern last weekend was the third-most productive of any quarterback in the country last week. He completed 24 of his 31 passes and scored three touchdowns. Bentley spent four years at South Carolina from 2016-19. After passing for over 7,500 yards and 55 touchdowns with the Gamecocks, Bentley suffered a season-ending foot injury in USC’s 2019 season opener against North Carolina and elected to transfer to Utah in the PAC-12 conference for 2020.

  4. USA TODAY: NCAA WILL WAIVE ACT AND SAT REQUIREMENTS FOR INCOMING FRESHMEN AHEAD OF 2020-21 Incoming college athletes won’t have to worry about taking the ACT or SAT to fulfill NCAA admission requirements ahead of the 2020-21 school year. The NCAA said Friday that it was waiving test score requirements as schools and classes across the country are closed and testing dates are canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic… [MORE] NCAA DROPS STANDARDIZED TEST REQUIREMENT FOR 2021-22 The COVID-19 pandemic will have lasting ramifications until at least 2021-22, as the NCAA Eligibility Center has temporarily waived standardized test requirements for incoming student-athletes. The NCAA announced Monday that “students who initially enroll full time during the 2021-22 academic year and intend to play NCAA Division I or II athletics will not be required to take a standardized test to meet NCAA initial-eligibility requirements.” A similar announcement was made in April for student-athletes entering college in 2020-21. The change comes as part of an NCAA effort to offer flexibility after the pandemic impacted all levels of education, including canceling some ACT and SAT tests while online versions were under development. Prospective college student-athletes are also dealing with different guidelines and education requirements during the 2020-21 school year… [MORE]

  12. Not surprised by Clemson, but Georgia coming in at number 2. Are they really the number 2? Not surprised by the big drop from LSU. Lost their QB and the OC of the offense and plus the losses to Graduation and the amount of underclassmen. Will be solid on defense. But feel their weak spot will be offense. Like our chances their this season if the injury bug fades and Muschamp can get his act together. Just 6 SEC teams feeling here a down year which will be good to the Gamecocks. ACC has 3 with Clemson leading the pack followed by North Carolina at 19 Florida St. at 23. What you folks think? 2020's Way-Too-Early Top 25: Clemson Leads the Pack After Title-Game Defeat. View full list from SI here We've got months to go until the return of college football, but it's never too early to start looking toward next season. 1. Clemson The Tigers were humbled in the Superdome on Monday night, but they will return Trevor Lawrence, Justyn Ross and other offensive weapons (how many others will depend on some early-entry NFL draft decisions). And the defense, which finished the season No. 6 in yards allowed and No. 3 in points allowed, was young. Throw in the nation’s No. 1 recruiting class and there’s a reason why coach Dabo Swinney said late Monday in New Orleans, “We’re going to have a really, really good football team next year.” 2. Georgia The top three teams in the SEC are all losing veteran quarterbacks, but the Bulldogs might have scored the coup of transfer season by landing Wake Forest evacuee Jamie Newman, who was second in the ACC in total offense at 287 yards per game. Combine that key transfer with the monster recruiting classes that Kirby Smart has stacked up, and Georgia could be next season’s LSU. (But the offensive line will have to be largely rebuilt.) 3. Ohio State Justin Fields is back after a Heisman Trophy–finalist season, but he’s going to need a lot of reinforcements at skill positions. The Buckeyes lose four of their top six receivers, and that includes leading rusher J.K. Dobbins. Defensively, end Chase Young and cornerback Jeff Okudah depart and will be likely top-five draft picks. Of course, the cupboard is never bare in Columbus, so Ohio State still looks like the class of the Big Ten. 4. Alabama The expectation is that running back Najee Harris will stay in school, a big boost as the Crimson Tide deals with its annual early-entry roster churn. Mac Jones showed that he can be a capable replacement for Tua Tagovailoa—if he can hold off incoming freshman Bryce Young. The harder work for Alabama will be restoring a defense that has slipped the past two seasons, but a lot of freshmen got valuable playing time in 2019 and should be ready to make bigger impacts in ’20. 5. Penn State It’s hard to close the scarlet-and-gray gap in the Big Ten East, but the Nittany Lions have a shot at it in 2020. Aside from the not-insignificant departure of all-purpose threat K.J. Hamler, virtually every key skill-position performer from 2019 is back—including quarterback Sean Clifford, who should take another step forward next season. And on defense, monster linebacker Micah Parsons returns as well. Remaining SEC Teams in top 25 8. Florida The emergence of Kyle Trask as a reliable quarterback was a major development in 2019 that should continue to pay dividends in 2020. He could have the best tight end in the country to throw to in Kyle Pitts. A few other playmakers must step forward, but that should happen. The SEC’s No. 2 defense last season also has some holes to fill, but the talent is there as Dan Mullen’s recruiting classes begin to stack up. 10. LSU It was fun while it lasted. Replacing Joe Burrow and passing game coordinator Joe Brady will be a massive undertaking. But if it’s Myles Brennan or a transfer, the new LSU QB has certified monsters to throw to in Ja’Marr Chase and Terrace Marshall. The defense could require a lot of renovation as well, as players make their decisions on whether to stay in school or go pro. 14. Auburn Gus Malzahn has a ton of returning and maturing offensive weapons and a ton of holes to fill on a defense that was often great. If quarterback Bo Nix makes the expected strides forward after an uneven freshman season, the Tigers could threaten Alabama and LSU in the West—but that will be decided late. Auburn will close the season by hosting the Tigers and then traveling to the Crimson Tide. 25. Texas A&M The other perpetually overrated team from Texas at least gets Clemson off the schedule this season, so that should mean an automatic one-win upgrade. With 2019 and 2020 classes that rank in the top 10 nationally, it’s time for Jimbo Fisher to start earning that massive paycheck.
  13. SC college athletes could get paid sooner under new state proposal Dec. 27, 2019 Rather than wait for the top collegiate athletic governing body to come up with its own rules, two Democratic S.C. lawmakers want South Carolina to set up rules now that would let college athletes earn money while in school. Joining California, state Sens. Marlon Kimpson, of Charleston, and Mia McCleod, of Richland, filed legislation — S. 935 — this month prohibiting the NCAA, colleges and universities from keeping student athletes from making money off of their image and likeness. South Carolina is one of 30 states considering legislation on the issue. The S.C. bill says athletes could make money based off signing autographs or appearing in commercials or video games. Under the legislation, a student athlete’s scholarship would not be affected. If signed into law, the legislation would take effect in 2021. University athletic directors and the NCAA — which generated $1 billion in revenue in 2017— have been increasingly resistant to any proposals that would allow college athletes to earn money while in school. However this month, NCAA president Mark Emmert paid Congress a visit, asking for a national solution rather than having each state adopt different rules. This followed the NCAA’s decision in October that would allow student athletes to benefit from their image and likeness, as long as its “consistent with the collegiate model.” The NCAA said it wants rules to go into place by January 2021. But Kimpson said he doesn’t plan to wait, going as far to call the NCAA’s proposal “vague.” “We should not be deterred in our quest to bring some level of economic fairness to the football field, or to the sports arena,” Kimpson said. “We should not be deterred by a simple press release acknowledging what we’ve known all the time that something needs to be done. They’re contemplating a scheme consistent with what they’ve done in the past, with regards to the cost of attendance.” Not all agree, including the athletic director at the University of South Carolina. State legislative action is not the best course to take, said Ray Tanner, who said he would rather see change made on the federal level so that every college and university is operating on a single standard. Tanner also said college athletes are also afforded access to professional staff — for instance, medical specialists, mental wellness counselors and nutritionists. “I believe that a patchwork of different laws from different states will not work, as there will be no uniform approach to support national competition for all student-athletes,” Tanner said. Other students have the ability to earn money for something they produce in school. Kimpson offered an example of a chemistry student on full scholarship, who gets a stipend working in the library. “If he or she creates an app, they aren’t limited from how much they could negotiate from Apple, or Samsung, or any other computer manufacturer or software developer,” Kimpson said. “What we’re talking about here is certain names on teams generate enormous sums of money in terms of ticket sales, memorabilia, television rights than others. That’s just capitalism. That’s just the market.” Kimpson said the vast majority of student athletes won’t go into a professional league after college graduation. “This may be their only opportunity to make any money during their college years,” Kimpson said.

  15. What issues could cause us to see expansion from 4 to 8 team play-off? Here are some reasons it most likely happen. Every couple of weeks, it seems as if we have to have a talk about the College Football Playoff and whether it will expand to eight teams or not. That storyline was brought to the forefront again this week, as outgoing Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany made some interesting remarks. So, what did Delany say? And, will the Playoff actually expand if the situations he named happen? Let's dive into this story: Delany is retiring on Jan. 1, but he's going out swinging. This week, he said that only two conferences being left out of the Playoff could spur change. "The thing that would probably trip it is if the committee left out a champion from the ACC or SEC," Delany said. "That would be an immediate catapult forward, as it was when Auburn was left out." That Auburn snub Delany referred to came when the undefeated Tigers were left out of the 2004 BCS title game in favor of fellow undefeated squads USC and Oklahoma. The Playoff didn't start until 2012, though -- eight years later. However, many do credit that Auburn snub for setting the wheels in motion for Playoff expansion, including AL.com columnist Kevin Scarbinsky, who wrote a story back in 2012 about how Auburn being left out of the title game impacted the way things work now. Delany does think the Playoff is an improvement over the BCS, though. In the same ESPN article referenced above, Delany said when a major conference is left out of the Playoff, it really hurts that conference's brand. "You don't know what it means to your brand and to your recruiting prospects and so on, what it means to be left out," Delany said. "The irony to me is you've doubled the access points from two to four, but you've at least doubled the damage and the pain associated with being left out." There are other factors at play in the expansion debate, too. ESPN's Mike Greenberg pointed to players sitting out of bowl games as another reason the Playoff might expand. In this video, Greeny and Emmanuel Acho say that if games like the Sugar Bowl don't matter to Georgia, which has players like OL Andrew Thomas sitting out, then there's something wrong with the bowl system. Oh, and Sugar Bowl tickets are going for as cheap as $8. Add that up and a switch to an eight-team Playoff might make sense for those in charge of those bigger bowl games. There are always going to be naysayers out there, but it does seem as if the momentum is moving toward an eight-team Playoff. However, as mentioned above, it took eight years for the BCS system to change after Auburn was snubbed. Will we have a new system in place by 2027?
  16. Transfer Portal 2019: Tracking Power Five transfers Dec. 14, 2019 The transfer portal changed college football a season ago, and it’s showing no signs of slowing during the 2019-20 campaign. That change in the rules resulted in thousands of FBS players entering the portal, including high-profile movers like Justin Fields, Tate Martell and Jalen Hurts. It’s completely altered roster construction strategies for some programs, and resulted in a few programs from the Group of Five having their rosters pillaged. The portal drew both heavy criticism and praise from coaches around the country, largely depending on who you asked. (VIEW ARTICLE) FREE 247SPORTS

Friday, Dec. 6th, 2019 - ConwayGamecock Seattle, WA - The South Carolina Women's Volleyball team returned to the NCAA Tournament after participating last season, the first time they've made the tournament in consecutive seasons since 2002. The Gamecocks (20-11) are in the 8th Seed Washington's Regional bracket, and drew 10th-ranked Colorado State for their first match. The Gamecocks rose to the occasion and upset the Rams (29-2) in a thrilling back-and-forth 5-set battle 27-25, 17-25, 25-22, 14-25, 18-16. The 5th set is played to 15 should the match reach that point, and the winning team must win the set by 2 points. The win marks the highest-ranked opponent South Carolina has defeated since Sept. 17, 2006, when it took down No. 6 Florida. The Gamecocks (now 20-11) face the host 8-Seed Washington (24-6) in the 2nd Rd., who swept Winthrop in 3 sets in their 1st Round match. The match is set for Saturday night at 10:pm, ET.

  21. Interesting read from the outside looking in at the following programs from the article. Coaching hires gone right, wrong and somewhere in between THIRD QUARTER With the inevitable but abrupt firing of Chris Ash at Rutgers on Sunday, the coaching carousel has lurched into action. There will be more activity in the weeks to come. The Ash-Rutgers marriage, undertaken in 2016, was never a strong one. The demands of that job didn’t match what he brought to the table as an assistant coach at Ohio State. But it went even worse than expected, with Ash winning just eight of his 40 games on the job and taking a 16-game losing streak to Power Five opponents into unemployment.
