  1. NCAA Reviewing Football Transfer Rules; Hope for Resolution by 2019 Season February 15, 2019 The NCAA reportedly plans to evaluate its transfer guidelines this offseason and will consider making changes to the system that will impact the immediate eligibility of a player who transferred prior to graduating. "We do believe attention on a small number of high-profile requests can skew perceptions of the scope of staff and committee review," Kaity McKittrick, who will be among those involved in the review, said, per ESPN's Dan Murphy. "Each waiver request is reviewed individually, as they each present a unique fact pattern and almost always confidential information about the student." The committee hopes to have a resolution prior to the start of the 2019-20 academic calendar. As Murphy notes, the NCAA loosened up its transfer guidelines in April 2018. The rule change allows players who transfer to gain immediate eligibility if their decision was "due to documented mitigating circumstances that are outside the student-athlete's control and directly impact the health, safety and well-being of the student-athlete." Since that rule change, college football has seen a number of high-profile transfers in the last 10 months. Among the players to transfer are Shea Patterson (Ole Miss to Michigan), Justin Fields (Georgia to Ohio State) and Tate Martell (Ohio State to Miami). Both Patterson and Fields were granted a waiver to become immediately eligible. A ruling on Martell has yet to be determined. According to Murphy, a total of 29 FBS players have applied for immediate eligibility since the start of the 2018-19 academic year, with 19 players coming out successful in the matter. That success rate has brought up talk of free agency becoming a reality in modern college football. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney went on the record, per ESPN's David M. Hale, in February 2018 to say that the rule change would lead to "free agency and total chaos." Thomas Mars, who helped Patterson and Fields receive waivers, believes the transfer numbers are a reflection of college coaches, not the system. "If people think the percentage of waivers granted is too high, the number of waivers that have been granted might just be a reflection of how the football coaching staffs are treating their players," Mars said, per Murphy. "It doesn't necessarily mean the NCAA is being too lenient." After seeing how the new rules have been applied for nearly a year now, the NCAA has the opportunity to figure out what the best course of action is moving forward.
  2. 93. Will Muschamp, South Carolina 2017 Final Coach Ranking: 17 2017 Record: 7-6 This was the fun and exciting breakthrough season under Muschamp? Nope. There was no shame in getting rolled by Georgia, the collapse against Florida was miserable, and the 28-0 loss to Virginia in the Belk Bowl was inexcusable. https://collegefootballnews.com/2019...heir-seasons/2 Here are some SEC LY to TY Stoops 75 to 1 Mullen 23 to 6 Orgeron 45 to 7 Mason 111 to 16 Sabin 10 to 21 Fisher 130 to 25 Moorhead N/R to 34 Smart 11 to 46 Odom 62 to 60 Pruitt N/R to 62 Malzahn 28 to 82 Luke 30 to 83 Muschamp 17 to 93 Morris 66 to 119 Dabo 6 to 3
  3. Interesting article about the soaring salaries of asst. coaches. Two things stand out and it likely impacts the potential hiring away of any of the Gamecock coaches. It impacts how many asst coaches are willing to jump at HC jobs due to the pay. It also holds asst coaches in place due to the lucrative pay and guarantees. Travaris is listed at one of the asst coaches making over $1 mil/yr. USA TODAY
  4. I am not much of a Notre Dame follower, but I hope they curb stomp Clemson and get ghetto stomped by Bama. SEC is the best conference, we just get beaten up with our schedules sometimes.
  5. Muschamp wants import something from soccer: red cards, yellow cards … green cards? Sept. 20, 2018 THE STATE The targeting rule in college football brings with it a host of questions, complaints and general confusion. South Carolina coach Will Muschamp has a common sense solution of sorts. He borrowed part of it from, of all places, soccer. “You know they have in soccer, yellow cards and green cards and all that,” Muschamp said. “Well some of these (targeting calls) aren’t malicious contact. Kick a guy out of the game if it’s malicious contact. But if it’s not malicious contact and you want to give him a 15-yard penalty. That’s fine. But don’t kick a guy out of the game because he’s tackling a guy on our sideline, the guy weighs 220 pounds, bearing down. “That’s what I think.” One can forgive Muschamp that soccer has red and yellow cards, while green cards are an element of the American immigration system. The red and yellow cards denote two different levels of infractions (red cards are instant disqualification, while it takes a pair of yellow cards to get tossed). At the moment, targeting calls cost a team 15 yards and a player two halves of football. Muschamp explained the new rules have changed the way his coaches teach pass rushing and tackling. “You’ve got to lower your targets,” Muschamp said. “Can’t lower them too much, they call that too. But you’ve got to keep the crown of the helmet out of all contact. When you’re talking in terms of protecting a defenseless player, which a quarterback in the pocket is a defenseless player.” This year, USC has only had one player called for targeting – safety Nick Harvey. He was thrown out late in a win against Coastal Carolina and missed the first half against Georgia. But a season ago, there was a run where it seemed as if a defensive back was averaging one nearly every game. Muschamp noted player safety is important, but also empathized with the split-second nature of the plays in question. There are quick movements, offensive players ducking their heads and other realities that go beyond just talking about the plays in abstract. “When you’re rushing the passer, you finally beat the 330 pounder you’ve been head-butting against for four quarters, and you’ve got an opportunity for a sack, but you’ve got to remember to keep your head out of it,” Muschamp said. “It’s very easy to be critical of a guy that doesn’t get his head out of it.”

    Attendance problem

    College Football’s Growing Problem: Empty Seats "Crowds at South Carolina have ebbed in recent years and scanned attendance made up 78% of the Gamecocks’ announced attendance last season. South Carolina held a one-day sale for the season opener against Coastal Carolina: $18.01 per ticket in honor of the school’s founding year. It sold 3,100 of those." “If you’re in the upper deck and buying a ticket for 45 bucks, and the choice is, I can sit on my couch and have a really good view, you might do that,” said Lance Grantham, associate athletic director for ticketing and customer relations. “The [TV] product is just outrageously good.” According to the article USC averaged 61,121 actual fans last year. That's pretty low. Granted there are many factors and Clemson barely did better with 66k. Still though,I thought this was somewhat surprising

  9. Gamecocks Not in AP's top 25 yet August 20, 2018 A disheartening South Carolina football streak extended to 51 weeks on Monday... but just barely. South Carolina’s football team was unranked Monday when the Associated Press preseason Top 25 was released, marking the 51st consecutive AP poll to be released without the Gamecocks represented. South Carolina opens the 2018 football season when they face Coastal Carolina in the season-opener on Sept. 1 at Williams-Brice Stadium. The Gamecocks appeared first on the poll’s “others receiving votes.” They were 10 points behind No. 25 LSU. The Gamecocks were ranked for one week last year in the CFB Playoff rankings, but the university uses the AP poll, which dates back to 1936, for its official record keeping. The last time South Carolina was a Top 25 team by that measure was when it was ranked 13th in the nation headed into a Sept. 27, 2014 game against Missouri. The Gamecocks lost that game 21-20 and have not been ranked by the AP since. South Carolina’s unranked streak is the football team’s longest since it snapped an 87-week drought in 2000. Here’s the full Top 25: Alabama (42) Clemson (18) Georgia Wisconsin (1) Ohio State Washington Oklahoma Miami Auburn Penn State Michigan State Notre Dame Stanford Michigan USC TCU West Virginia Mississippi State Florida State Virginia Tech UCF Boise State Texas Oregon LSU Other teams that received votes in the initial poll were South Carolina (96), Florida (68), Utah (60), Oklahoma St. (51), FAU (38), Arizona (28), NC State (22), Texas A&M (21), Boston College (18), Northwestern (13), Kansas St. (10), Iowa St. (8), Houston (6), Memphis (3), Troy (2), Iowa (2), Kentucky (1), Arkansas St. (1), Fresno St. (1). Among the human polls, the AP is the historic gold standard. In a sport that changes so frequently, it’s the one constant going back to the 1930s, and that’s one big reason people care far more about it than they do, say, the Coaches Poll.

  11. CBS Sports Poll: Gamecocks land in top 25 August 08, 2018 CBS Sports For the third straight season, the preseason edition of the CBS Sports 129 leads off with Alabama at the No. 1 spot. The rankings, which compile ballots from college football experts at CBS Sports and 247Sports to rank every FBS team in the country, allow us to step back and look at the sport's entire landscape as teams jockey for position both inside and outside the top 25 spots. While Alabama sits in its familiar spot at the top, they were not a unanimous No. 1 in our balloting. They are followed by Clemson, Georgia and Ohio State. The Buckeyes are making their fourth straight appearance in the top five of our preseason FBS rankings. Our experts seem have given Wisconsin a greater boost than some others, placing the Badgers in the No. 5 spot to open the season, but otherwise, the top of the board falls in line with what we've seen from around the country. Boise State is our top Group of Five team in the preseason rankings at No. 21, joined by UCF at No. 23. College football experts from CBS Sports and 247Sports contribute ballots each week, which are averaged together for our rankings. You can see the top 25 below and teams ranked 26-129 by clicking here. RANK TEAM 2017-18 RECORD 2017-18 FINISH 1 Alabama 13-1 1 2 Clemson 12-2 5 3 Georgia 13-2 2 4 Ohio State 12-2 6 5 Wisconsin 13-1 7 6 Washington 10-3 15 7 Oklahoma 12-2 3 8 Penn State 11-2 8 9 Auburn 10-4 10 10 Michigan State 10-3 17 11 Miami 10-3 12 12 Notre Dame 10-3 13 13 Michigan 8-5 34 14 Stanford 9-5 16 15 TCU 11-3 9 16 Mississippi State 9-4 21 17 USC 11-3 11 18 Florida State 7-6 54 19 Texas 7-6 40 20 West Virginia 7-6 44 21 Boise State 11-3 24 22 South Carolina 9-4 28 23 UCF 13-0 4 24 Oregon 7-6 41 25 Florida 4-7 79 New arrivals to the top 25 No. 13 Michigan (up 21 spots): The Wolverines have enough talent throughout the program to start every year in the top 20 of the rankings. It's where they finish the year that is of concern to Michigan fans heading into 2018. No. 18 Florida State (up 36 spots): A quick correction from our experts after confidence in the Seminoles faded throughout the season in 2017. No. 19 Texas (up 21 spots): Our team appears pretty bullish on the Big 12 in general with TCU, Texas and West Virginia all joining Oklahoma in the top 20. The Longhorns were a top 40 team a year ago that played like a top 10 team at times, and the thinking here seems to be that the next step is coming for Tom Herman and the Longhorns. No. 20 West Virginia (up 24 spots): A healthy Will Grier puts West Virginia back in the mix to challenge Oklahoma for the Big 12 title. No. 22 South Carolina (up six spots): Any early movement in the rankings for the Gamecocks will be determined early by a Week 2 meeting with Georgia. No. 24 Oregon (up 17 spots): Like West Virginia, Oregon gets a boost from having its proven starting quarterback healthy again. The Ducks could be dangerous with Justin Herbert in 2018. No. 25 Florida (up 54 spots): Jim McElwain's midseason dismissal and the Gators' late-season struggles had Florida's ranking on a week-by-week slide well outside the top 25. With Dan Mullen in place and several key offensive weapons back, things have been on the up for Florida since our last balloting for the CBS 129. Teams moving out: Oklahoma State, Northwestern, Memphis, South Florida, LSU, Virginia Tech, FAU
