South Carolina, Clemson investing more in athletics and still making money July 08, 2017 The athletics departments at Clemson University and the University of South Carolina continued to operate at a surplus during the 2015-16 academic year despite mirroring a national trend that saw NCAA Division I schools invest more in their student-athletes. Clemson finished “in the black” by $1,763,077 while South Carolina had a positive ledger that revealed revenue that surpassed operating expenses by $5,595,582. Those figures were among data compiled by USA TODAY Sports from reports of annual athletics department operating revenues and expenses that schools submit to the NCAA each January. The 230 public institutions included in the report revealed that spending on financial aid for athletes increased by nearly nine percent – the largest single-year increase since 2010. The increase includes boosts in the traditional elements of an athletic scholarship – tuition, fees, room and board – plus the additional amounts for incidental expenses that athletes were allowed to receive for the first time. Schools also are able to provide meals and snacks for athletes that NCAA rules had prohibited until April of 2014. “Substantial progress has been made in the past few years with NCAA legislations opening the door for programs like ours to invest even more into our student-athletes,” Arkansas athletics director Jeff Long said in a statement to USA TODAY Sports. “Fully funding cost of attendance and providing additional meals and fueling for student-athletes in all sports on an annual basis is a significant financial commitment for all intercollegiate programs, but one that was needed for the benefit of our student-athletes.” Clemson and South Carolina apparently embraced the new allowances. Clemson invested $15,364,538 on “athletic student aid” last year, the ninth-highest total in the nation and an 18.3 percent increase over the previous year. South Carolina spent $14,848,950, which ranked 11th nationally and reflected an increase of 13.8 percent over 2014-15. Michigan topped the national list with athletic student aid expenditures of more than $23 million. Meanwhile, coaches’ compensation rose by five percent – the smallest single-year rate in 11 years – and Clemson and South Carolina both ranked well below the national leaders. Ohio State paid its coaches a total of more than $30 million in salaries, benefits and bonuses, followed by Kentucky at more than $26 million. Clemson ranked 30th at $17.69 million while South Carolina was 44th at $13.76 million. The Southeastern Conference continued to be the major money conference, as 10 league schools ranked among the Top 17 in total operational revenue. Florida State was the top Atlantic Coast Conference school in that category, ranking 18th, while Clemson ranked 27th. Among other expenditures of note for Clemson included $5.56 million spent on travel, $4.97 million on direct overhead and administrative expenses, $4.36 million for fundraising, marketing and promotions, $2.85 million on equipment, uniforms and supplies, and $1.867 million on recruiting. Among Clemson’s primary revenue generators were contributions ($35.44 million), media rights ($15.96 million), ticket sales ($23.5 million), royalties ($9.53 million), bowl revenue ($4.79 million), and conference distribution monies ($4.1 million).

DE Michael Barnett did not see enough at USC to add Gamecocks to his current top five April 4, 2014 Rivals bio 4 star DE Michael Barnett 6'4" 239lbs of Woodland took in Tuesday’s practice at USC and he left Columbia with the Gamecocks still outside his current top five. “It was pretty good,” he said of the visit. “I was just looking at the football facilities. Can’t deny the fact that South Carolina is beautiful. But it (the visit) didn’t really do anything, didn’t change anything. They’re still outside the top five. Barnett talked to recruiter Everette Sands along with defensive line coach Deke Adams and defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward while there. “They just want me to get back up there for a school day so they can show me the broadcasting school,” said Barnett who wants to major in broadcasting. “They said they are going to recruit me hard. Coach Adams and coach Sands said they will be at my spring practice.” Barnett said he has no other visits planned right now but wants to get to Georgia over his spring break. His top five remains NC State, North Carolina, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Florida State in no order. And he said he still has high interest in Clemson. He talked with the Tigers last week and hopes to visit there over the summer. Barnett, who once was committed to Virginia Tech, said he will not be making an early decision this time.

Bruce Ellington’s status for opener still uncertain Posted on August 20, 2013by Andrew Miller So, we’re less than 10 days out from the start of the season and the injuries are beginning to pile up for South Carolina. Injuries are a part of any preseason camp and there’s nothing that any coach can really do to limit them. You don’t hit enough, then you’re soft and not ready for the season. You hit too much and, well, there are injuries. I wasn’t that concerned about Bruce Ellington’s hamstring injury a week ago, but now, it’s looking more and more likely that the former Berkeley High School star might miss the Gamecocks opener against North Carolina on Aug. 29. He missed practice again on Tuesday. If he doesn’t return by Thursday this week, then I doubt he’ll play. I saw Bruce jogging lightly and catching passes following the scrimmage on Saturday. He said he hoped to be back this week. Well time is running out. The same goes for linebacker Cedric Cooper, who dislocated his elbow at the beginning of camp. He had a soft cast on his arm at Tuesday’s practice. If he’s not back by Friday then Marcquis Roberts will start at will linebacker against UNC. If Cooper comes back and he’s starting then I think that tells a lot about what the coaching staff thinks of Cooper and maybe even Roberts. There was a little bit of good news on the injury front as defensive end Chaz Sutton returned to practice Tuesday morning. He’d been out more than a week with a sprained foot. Remember he was second on the team a year ago with five sacks. Others who remain sidelined include Rory Anderson (hamstring), Kyle Morini (elbow), James King (foot), Gerald Turner (ankle), Mike Matulis (shoulder), Cody Gibson (knee), Devin Washington (concussion), Kadetrix Marcus (knee), Jerell Adams (ankle) and Carlton Heard (hamstring). Zandi making moves After Saturday’s lackluster performance from the offensive line in the scrimmage, assistant coach Shawn Elliott could be considering making a move at left tackle. That move comes in the form of redshirt freshman Mason Zandi,the biggest dude — at least height-wise — on the team. Zandi has been backing up both the right and left tackle spots. Right tackle Brandon Shell, appears to have nailed down his starting job, but Corey Robinson is getting some heat from Zandi. In some recent practices, the 6-9, 295-pound former Irmo High School product has gotten some work with the starters. “I feel like every day I’ve been in camp I’m competing for a starting job,” Zandi said. In general, Elliott has been pleased with the offensive line’s work as a whole during preseason camp. But after Saturday’s scrimmage, USC head coach Steve Spurrier called the offensive line “soft.” “We were pitiful on Saturday,” Elliott said. “Preseason camp is normally a roller-coaster ride. Some days we’re really good and some days we’re really bad. We’ve had some peaks and valleys. This year is no different. It’s been a good camp. We didn’t play well on Saturday. I wasn’t discouraged by the scrimmage. We came out and got better the next practice. “When the head coach says something I listen. I rely that to my guys. When you’re boss tells you you’re bad, does it get to you? Of course it does. At that point on that day certainly I agreed.” Link: http://blog.postandcourier.com/spur-of-the-moment/bruce-ellingtons-status-opener-uncertain/

GREENSBORO, N.C.- The head of ACC football officials, Doug Rhoads, met with media Monday morning at the ACC Football Kickoff to discuss the NCAA rules changes that will take effect this season. Below is a summary of the changes: 1.) Injuries: If an injury occurs during the final minute of a half or the game, and the injury is the only reason for the stoppage in play the offended team has the option of a ten second run-off. The offended team can, however, refuse the run-off. Also, if the offending team has a timeout, they can use that timeout to avoid the run-off. If both teams have injuries, there is no run-off. If there are less than 10 seconds on the clock at the end of a half or the game, and there is a 10-second runoff the game is over by rule. 2.) Spiking the ball: There must be three seconds or more on the clock at the end of a half or the game in order for a team to spike the ball and stop the clock. If there is 2.9 seconds or less on the clock, the team must run a play and cannot stop the clock by spiking the ball. If the ball is snapped with 2.9 seconds on the clock or less and the ball is spiked, the game will be deemed over. 3.) Targeting and initiating with the crown of the helmet: The rule in and of itself has not changed, the difference is in the penalty. Both of these fouls now require an automatic ejection. If the foul occurs during the first half, the player will remain ineligible for the remainder of the contest; however, if the foul occurs during the second half, the player will be ineligible for the first half of the next game. If the foul occurs during the second half of the last regular seasons game, the ejection will carry over into the championship game, the bowl game or the first game of the next season. 4.) Targeting a defenseless player: There are nine types of players that can are considered to be defenseless and a player cannot hit them above the shoulders. If this occurs, the player will be automatically ejected. 5.) Illegal crack-back block: An illegal crack-back block is a block below the waist. Players outside the tacklebox (more than seven yards out) or a player in motion cannot block another player below the waist until after the ball is snapped and significant time has run off the clock. After time has run off the clock, any player may be blocked below the waist as long as the blocking player is in front of the player being blocked or is within a 10 o’clock to 2 o’clock zone. In a meeting with the media this morning at the ACC Kickoff Doug Rhoads, the head of ACC officials, mentioned that leading with the crown of the helmet and hitting above the shoulders will bring an automatic ejection this season. If the hit happens in the first half, the player will be ejected for the rest of the game. if the hit happens in the second half, that player will be suspended for the first half of the next game as well. Rhoads was asked about South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney's hit on a Michigan player in the bowl game, and he said in his opinion that should have been an ejection, and that hits like that one will lead to ejections to this season.
COLUMBIA — Most of the focus this summer, for those who follow South Carolina football, is on the potentially special season the Gamecocks could experience this fall. South Carolina’s commitments for the classes of 2014 and 2015: 2014 OLB Bryson Allen-Williams (Dillon) RB Joe Blue (Ellenwood, Ga.) TE Kevin Crosby (Bamberg) TE Kalan Ritchie (Goose Creek) OG Malik Young (Piedmont) DB Wesley Green (Lithonia) DB Darin Smalls (Summerville) 2015 DE Shameik Blackshear (Bluffton) DE Arden Key (Lithonia, Ga.) WR Dexter Neal (Stone Mountain, Ga.) And rightfully so. Having gone 11-2 in each of the past two seasons, they almost certainly will begin 2013 ranked in the top 10, for the second straight year. When they open the season Aug. 29 at home against North Carolina, they will trot out one of the nation’s most fascinating players, defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, with the college football world watching on ESPN, eager to see the likely top overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft. Amid offseason workouts for the current players, mid-June also has delivered interesting developments for the Gamecocks’ future. As USC continues to add recruits for the Class of 2014, it already has three for 2015 — an uncommonly early start for the Gamecocks with a pool of rising junior recruits. On May 21, USC received a commitment from Shameik Blackshear, a defensive end from Bluffton who also had scholarship offers from Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia and Tennessee, among others, according to Rivals. It was a significant pickup for running backs coach Everette Sands, the primary recruiter for Blackshear. Five days earlier, defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward landed wide receiver Dexter Neal of powerhouse Stephenson High in Stone Mountain, Ga. His offers, on a whole, weren’t as sexy as Blackshear’s, but his suitors included Clemson, Virginia Tech, North Carolina and Vanderbilt. On Sunday, another Ward recruit committed: defensive end Arden Key of Lithonia, Ga. His other offers included Arkansas, Clemson, Miami, Mississippi, Tennessee, Southern California, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and Stanford. Rivals hasn’t released its 2015 rankings yet, but Rivals national recruiting analyst Mike Farrell said Blackshear and Key almost certainly will receive four of five stars, and Blackshear has the potential to get five. Since 2004, USC’s only five-star recruits are Clowney (2011), running back Marcus Lattimore (2010) and cornerback Chris Culliver (2007). “I think this Blackshear kid is the top player in the state,” Farrell said. “He’s potentially special.” Farrell released the Class of 2014 rankings in February. For the 2015 group, he expects to do it in November — earlier than ever before, fittingly. Farrell understands recruiting rankings aren’t an exact science, and he thinks it would be absurd to rank high school players before their junior season, because most kids make their biggest jumps from sophomore to junior year. That is why Rivals is “waiting to see” how this season unfolds before ranking juniors, Farrell said. But, he said, “Eventually, we’re going to have to rank kids before they play their junior year. The process is just so ridiculous now and so sped up.” A growing trend In the previous 11 recruiting classes (2004-14), USC has never gotten off to this fast of a start with gaining commitments. For the classes of 2004-06, USC’s first commitment came the previous July, according to Rivals’ database. In 2007, 2008 and 2011, it arrived the previous April. In 2009, the previous March. An outlier was Class of 2010 commitment Kelcy Quarles, a defensive tackle whose father played for the Gamecocks. He pledged in November 2008. Similarly, for the Class of 2012, USC got running back Kendric Salley in December 2010. In the 2013 and 2014 classes, USC’s first commitment happened the previous January. But now, for the Class of 2015, USC got its first commitment in May 2013 — nearly two years before recruits can make commitments binding by signing letters of intent in February 2015. Until then, a recruit can change his mind and commit to another school if he so desires. USC having this many commitments so early only continues a recent trend in college football. For the classes of 2007-09, USC had four commitments by the end of the previous June. USC’s end-of-June commitment numbers the next four years: 10, six, nine and 14. For the Class of 2014, USC already has five commitments, though the Gamecocks will be limited on the number of recruits they can take for 2014 because they have just three scholarship seniors. The Gamecocks are not unusual in their early start for 2015. Tennessee already has four commitments, Alabama three. Five other Southeastern Conference schools have one, for a league total of 15. Florida State is the only Atlantic Coast Conference school with a 2015 commitment. The Seminoles have three, including one who pledged in February 2012, when he was just a freshman. Consider that for the Class of 2013 (the group that signed in February), just five SEC players committed to the school they signed with before their junior year — 10 fewer than now. Georgia had two such commitments. Alabama, Tennessee and Texas A&M each had one. Here to stay? Farrell wouldn’t be surprised if this trend of pre-junior year commitments sticks. “Nowdays, if you see a kid that you really like at your camp (on campus for prospective recruits), not only do you need to offer him, but if he’s interested in committing, you need to get the commitment as well,” Farrell said. “It’s sped up that much. You might as well reel them in.” When an offer arrives early, Farrell said players who commit two years before signing day might feel relieved about supposedly finishing the stressful recruiting process. But commitments don’t keep coaches from continuing to pursue elite prospects like Blackshear. “Recruiting hasn’t even started for these kids,” Farrell said. “A commitment this early, to me, is just a very strong indication of who the team to beat is. “This isn’t to say that South Carolina should say (to a player who wants to commit early), ‘No, slow down, son.’ They should take the commitment. They’re not going to point any of this stuff out to them (about other schools still recruiting them). And they shouldn’t.” Farrell said most kids stick with their commitments, but schools like Clemson know how fickle commitments can be. Last June, the Tigers got one from defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, Rivals’ No. 1 overall recruit for 2013. Five months later, he reneged on his commitment and eventually signed with Mississippi. Of course, there are always rare players whose potential is obvious early. Dylan Moses is a rising ninth-grader in Baton Rouge, La., who already has offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Nebraska, Texas, UCLA and Mississippi. For several years, the Gamecocks’ coaches have been able to track in-state prospects since they were young. When Steve Spurrier took over in 2005, he wasn’t completely familiar with Palmetto State recruiting, let alone its eighth-grade players. His son and recruiting coordinator, Steve Jr., was on his father’s first USC staff, and struggled with early recruiting trips. “We were behind and Clemson was ahead of us, well ahead of us (in recruiting),” Spurrier Jr. said in March. “This was before GPS. I’ve got a map and I’ve got dots all over it for where the schools are. I’m just driving down the road, trying to figure out where I’m going. It took me all day just to get school to school. Oh man, those were tough days. You’d get lost and pull into the gas station, like, ‘Where’s the next school at?’” Now, the staff is comfortable enough with roads and recruiting here that, as of March, it had already offered scholarships to two in-state ninth graders. “Because we’ve watched them for two years,” Spurrier Jr. said. “We know who our schools are, who the players are. That certainly makes a difference, being in those schools.”
I know this is early, but I like to make my comments before the fact, if possible. I'm glad our coaches got raises. As far as I'm concerned, however much it is, it ain't enough. You can't put a price on Whammy. IMO, fans get too caught up in how well a coach recruits. I don't think any of our coaches have to take a back seat to anybody as recruiters, but the SOS name recruits more players than anything else. It breaks my heart to see GA get punished so severely. Glad he has taken it in a stand up way. Note to the young studs who think they have the world by the tail: Grown men consequences are more severe than you have any way of knowing. We will be solid on defense, with a chance to be better than last year, baring injuries. An asst. coach makes his money developing players and a co-ordinator makes it on scheme. We have the coaches on defense to do that. And by the way, we have the players. We have been developing momentum and talent for the last 3 years on defense, and I can't wait for our younger guys to be turned loose. On offense, bottom line, if we can run downhill and gash people just a little bit, we have the QB's and receivers to take advantage of this.I think we can average 28 points a game next year in the SEC, 60/40 run, pass. Don't really care who plays QB next year, both have the ability, character, leadership, and are winners. Many say if you have 2 QB'S, you really have none. IMO, that is accurate if they are of similar skill sets. CS and DT have two completely different skill sets and the defense must adjust to each one, not an easy task. In either case, play action passes are simpler if you can hurt people running the ball. I don't think any of us have seen close to the best of CS running the ball if defenses had to stack the box too stop the run. Well, he might get hurt. Well, again, he might not. We have a more than capable QB In DT, that's If he doesn't win it outright. I'll believe in QB controversies when I start believing in center controversies. They keep score on Saturday afternoon, play the best 11 you got. Where's the controversy? Glad we kept SE. Got to be as good of an OL Coach anywhere. We have the talent on the OL. I think we are top 15 in talent potential. This is another position we have stockpiled, and are ready to bust loose. SE, not Botkin, has the toughest coaching job next year. Zone blocking creates higher hats. I love the inside zone, but the transition back to man blocking the next play or series is difficult, cause now you got to root them out. Zone blocking has taken some of the traditional toughness out of OL blocking. I am convinced that SE is the man to make this happen. If we get tough and nasty up front, we have the backs to hurt anybody we play. Final thought. IMO, I'm just saying, I wish we would throw more passes to Busta and Adams. I like our WR's, but those two guys are monsters and go up and get it with the best of them. BTW, Dildo, KMA!
