  1. WHOO-HOO! DISCUSSION GAMEDAY THREAD: USC VS Gators Saturday Game-Time "12:00pm ET" Inspired by cocky0 For detailed accounts & discussion with your fellow Gamecocks (PS SEND ALL WHOO-HOO!!!! To cocky0 for his records by PM.) Gamecocks vs. Florida Gamecocks and Gators Set for Noon Kick Saturday, Oct. 19 ------------------------------------------------------------
  2. Game week 7: Talking Florida (Discussion Thread) OK another big game this time top 10 foe Florida. In a tough border war with top 3 Georgia this past Saturday in between the Hedges which received some damage after our big win in Athens. Now it is time to put that win behind and work on beating the nasty Gators. Will take another all out Game by the defense. Offense little wounded at this time. All hopes focus on QB Ryan being able to be healthy enough to play. Look for Dak to get more work in practice this week at QB. He needs the time and if he has to step in will be better prepared to step in to the starting role. Running game will have to keep up the now solid play. Gators will be coming in angry giving it their all to whip us in the COCK-PIT. Question abound. Few can QB be a strength since Ryan not at full speed. Can the defense rise up again? Running have to have a major impact on the games out come? Looking forward to your discussion. Gamecocks vs. Florida
  3. ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit sends praise the Gamecocks way after beating then No.3 UGA ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit’s sons might be playing ball at Clemson, but that’s not stopping him from throwing some praise South Carolina’s way. The former Ohio State quarterback included the Gamecocks in multiple top 5 lists coming off the weekend after USC upended No. 3 Georgia on the road in double overtime. The 20-17 win was South Carolina’s first against a top-5 team since 2013. That got South Carolina a spot as Herbstreit’s top team of the week. That wasn’t the only respect below Muschamp got as he was also named the Bobby Dodd Trophy Coach of the Week following the upset that moved USC to 3-3 on the season and 2-2 in the SEC.
  4. Been told I ramble to much so will make it short Anyhow sense I really do not like taters here I decided to change the Rival-pit to reflect that. Enjoy the Tater-Pit. Not thinned skin just do not like taters and it does make sense not to have a site that in way invites TATERS!!

  7. Meet Professor Muschamp? You should see the latest promotion Oct. 15, 2019 The look South Carolina football’s coach debuted during the Gamecocks’ night game against Kentucky and kept up vs. Georgia will reappear in at least one way this Saturday against Florida — USC will be handling out “Professor Muschamp” glasses to students prior to kickoff. “You know what? I’m getting old and I can’t read, especially at night,” Muschamp said at the time. “It’s been a (crappy) fall. I got more gray hair than I ever had. My wife doesn’t like to hang around losers. I’ve been losing. It ain’t been good.” With a 24-7 win, though, there was fan enthusiasm to see them again for a noon kickoff against Georgia, and Muschamp joked that his wife might pick out some new frames, though nothing like Georgia’s kicker and noted glasses-wearer Rodrigo Blankenship wore. “Had to put my ego on the shelf on these,” Muschamp said before the Georgia game. “But my wife is going to buy me a different pair she said.” Sure enough, though, he wore them early this past Saturday before eventually taking them off in the 20-17 double-overtime upset over the No. 3 Bulldogs. Soon, parody Twitter accounts started popping up and references to “Professor William Muschamp” started making the rounds on social media.
  8. GAMECOCKFANATICS PLAYERS OF THE GAME: South Carolina vs Georgia Final: South Carolina Gamecocks (3-3, 2-2) 20 – Georgia Bulldogs (5-1, 2-1) 17, 2nd OT The South Carolina Gamecocks get a huge, hard-fought SEC win on the road against the nationally 3rd-ranked Georgia Bulldogs in Athens, GA 20-17 in the second overtime. The win evens USC’s record overall to 3-3, and in SEC play to 2-2, while is the first defeat for UGA thus far this season, dropping them to 5-1 overall and 2-1 in SEC play. The win is also a major win for the Will Muschamp Era, not only easily his best victory as Gamecock Head Coach, but also arguably equaling (bettering?) the previous consensus best victory over #1-ranked Alabama in 2010, due to this game being on the road in a hostile environment, as well as USC not being ranked (the 2010 Gamecocks were 19th nationally at the time). The Gamecocks on both offense and defense found a way to ignore the extremely loud and hostile crowd, and the aggressive Bulldogs to continue attacking right to the end of the game, which was extended into a second overtime. Heisman candidate and Bulldog QB Jake Fromm – who had thrown 0 interceptions and been sacked 0 times thus far this season, was flustered and pressured by the Gamecock defense all game long, surrendering to 3 sacks and 3 interceptions, one pick being taken all the way for a defensive touchdown by CB Israel Mukuamu. The vaunted Bulldog rush offense that came into the game leading the SEC in yards per game and averaging nearly 3 touchdowns per game thus far, was held to 80 yards under their average, and only 1 score. On offense, QB Ryan Hilinski withstood a ferocious UGA defensive attack that had him bruised and limping, but he was a solid 15 for 20 for 116 yards, and a touchdown pass, a long 46-yard play to WR Bryan Edwards. Eventually Dak Joyner came into the game in replacement for Hilinski, and he also played strong in his first ever road SEC game, with 39 passing yards and 28 rushing. Ultimately though, it was the Gamecock defense that made the biggest statement of the game, with their outstanding play to the very end, with a Bulldog rush for no gain, and two straight incomplete passes from Fromm at the USC 25-yd line, to bring in their prolific placekicker Rodrigo Blankenship to kick a 42-yarder, a “gimme” kick for him. But this game was full of pressure and tension throughout, as neither team was able to pull away from the other, and Gamecock kicker Parker White felt it moments earlier in missing a “gimme” 32-yard FG for him that would have won the game in the 1st overtime. Now, Blankenship – who had an earlier field goal blocked – felt that pressure, and his kick goes wide, giving South Carolina the win. Now the Gamecocks have to enjoy this victory quickly, and then turn their attention to their opponent next week versus top-10 ranked Florida, which will be at home this time, in Williams-Brice. Now let’s get to the players of the game, starting with the Gamecocks: OFFENSE QB Ryan Hilinski played heroically despite the defensive onslaught, and RB Rico Dowdle was once again solid, but WR Bryan Edwards gets the vote here: Edwards had 6 receptions for 78 yards, the big one being the 46-yard reception for his lone touchdown, and the lone TD for the offense on the day. Honorable Mentions: OK, lets give it as a tie to both QB Ryan Hilinski and RB Rico Dowdle. DEFENSE CB Israel Mukuamu: Mukuamu was clearly the biggest impact player for the game, with a career-high three (3) interceptions – all the picks of the game – including a pick-six score. Honorable mention: Entire Gamecock Defense: this was undoubtedly one of the best defensive performances yet under Coach Muschamp – if not THE best – and it came against a highly regarded SEC opponent on their home field. The defense never gave up even when there were times that they could have, and they were certainly tired towards the end of regulation, much less the two overtime periods. But they kept coming – Kinlaw, Jones, Enagbare, Sterling, Wonnum, Brunson. Horn took on UGA’s top WR in Pickens and held him scoreless. It was an overall unit effort that was sorely needed, because UGA’s own defense was also stout and contained our offense. For Georgia OFFENSE RB D’Andre Swift: Swift was steady throughout the game for the Bulldogs, with 113 yards on 23 carries (4.9 YPC) and 1 TD. Honorable Mention: WR Demetris Robertson: Robertson also had a solid receiving game with 5 receptions for 51 yards and 1 TD. DEFENSE Tie between LBs Tae Crowder and Monty Rice: Crowder had 12 total tackles, with a tackle for loss assist, and Rice also had 12 total tackles, with a pass break-up. Honorable Mention: None for Georgia since they had co-winners.
  9. South Carolina is Reveal Suits National Team of the Week Gamecocks Earn National Recognition After Upset Win at Georgia The South Carolina Gamecocks snagged four takeaways from Georgia, then stunned the Bulldogs between the hedges with an overtime field goal in a 20-17 upset. For their defensive effort and beating a top-five team for the first time since 2013, the Gamecocks earned the Reveal Suits National Team of the Week honor for games of the weekend of Oct. 12.

  14. Gamecocks vs. Bulldogs DISCUSSION GAME WEEK 6: Talking Gamecocks vs. Bulldogs Saturday Kick - Off "High Noon" Oct. 07, 2019 Well it is time to face off with border rival Georgia Saturday at high noon. The way standings are as off today. The Gamecocks have and will play No. 1, 2 and 3. This week will be number 3 Georgia leaving only No. 2 Clemson left to play to finish out the top three in the nation. The Gamecocks will have their hands full down in Athens facing a fierce defense and a fast and powerful offense. Gamecocks at 2-3 have improved, but most fans thinking entering this game they would be 4-1 or at the least 3-2. But as we all know it has not panned out that way. A win here would surely put an nice spin heading into the final half of the season. My questions are how can the Gamecocks upset No. 3 Georgia team in there own back yard? Can this team be capable of the task that is awaiting them Saturday? The Gamecocks defense their offense what will they need to do? OK. Fanatics let’s see your responses to the following questions and more. GO COCKS BEAT GEORGIA!!!
  15. GAMECOCKFANATICS PLAYERS OF THE GAME: Kentucky Wildcats vs South Carolina Gamecocks Final: South Carolina (2-3, 1-2) 24 – Kentucky (2-3, 0-3) 7 The South Carolina Gamecocks return home to Williams-Brice Stadium, and win their first SEC game on the season, as well as tear a monstrous gorilla off of their back by defeating SEC-East rival Kentucky Wildcats 24-7. The Gamecocks defense has perhaps their best game of the season collectively, while the run game on offense was dominating all night long. The Gamecocks take this win into their first of two bye weeks on the season, and prepare for their next foe the Georgia Bulldogs, in Athens on October 12th. Kentucky, who will also have a bye week this next week, will prepare to host the Arkansas Razorbacks on the 12th. Now lets get to the players of the game, starting with The Gamecocks: OFFENSE I have to give this as a tie between the top two running backs for the Gamecocks, in Rico Dowdle and Tavien Feaster. The Dynamic Duo were a very effective one-two punch all game long for the Gamecocks - Dowdle rushed 15 times for 102 net yards (6.8 YPC), with 1 touchdown, while Feaster also rushed 15 times for 107 net yards (7.1 YPC), and added 2 TDs. Combined they led the Gamecock rush offense that gained 247 yards and scored three touchdowns. Dowdle gave Gamecock Nation a scare late in the game as he limped off the field with an apparent ankle injury, but towards the end of the game he was seen walking unassisted on the sideline, with only a slight limp and smiling to the fans. Hopefully it’s only a slight sprain, and he’ll make the most of the off week to rest and heal up, and be ready for UGA. Honorable Mention: QB Ryan Hilinski. Hilinski didn’t have a great game of note by any means, but after the previous game against Missouri, with Elbow Gate and all, it was good for the team to see him back at the helm, and looking like the Missouri game was just the odd anomaly. Ryan didn’t throw for a lot of yards nor for any scores, and his completion rate dropped as the game progressed, but he started the game strong, and led the team down the field for an opening-drive touchdown, which was essential for the team to settle down and play with confidence. DEFENSE Buck D.J. Wonnum: the defense overall had a masterful game that attacked and flustered the Kentucky QB all night long, and the leader of this effort was clearly Wonnum. D.J. finished the night with 5 total tackles, and three tackles for loss, all three of them by way of QB sacks. Honorable mention: LB Ernest Jones – there were several players on defense who had strong nights tonight, but Ernest made the initial statement in the first offensive possession of the game for Kentucky, when he ran in front of a soft lob pass that fell short, and intercepted it. Jones also led the defense with 7 total tackles. For Kentucky OFFENSE WR Lynn Bowden. Bowden was Mr. Everything for the Wildcats tonight – he stepped in for an ineffective Sawyer Smith at QB, and moved the offense in a wildcat option scheme. Bowden rushed 6 times for 44 net yards, and also threw two passes completing both for 7 yards. He also had three receptions in 7 targeted attempts for 13 yards. Honorable Mention: RB Chris Rodriguez. Rodriguez came in late into the game, when the Gamecock defense was containing the more heralded Wildcat RB tandem of Asim Rose and Kavosiey Smoke to a combined 12 carries for 40 net yards, and rushed 6 times for 65 net yards and the lone touchdown score for Kentucky. DEFENSE DT Calvin Taylor. Taylor had 7 total tackles, with a tackle for loss which was a QB sack, and a forced fumble. Honorable Mention: LB Jamar Watson. Watson had 4 total tackles, with 2 TFL, both being sacks, and 2 QB hurries.
  16. 2019 Gamecock Recruiting class is full and has a nice diversity overall. The only thing lacking in the 2019 cycle was a top-notch running back, Gamecocks could feel those needs with 2020 class. Names to keep an Eye on are Five-star tailback MarShawn Lloyd and Four-star targets Tank Bigsby. Gamecock are in good with both. Gamecocks have a good chance at both at this time. On the defensive side lots of talented players, the Gamecocks are at this time involved with some instate and out of state top talent. If Boom can have a good season next year get to 8 to 10 wins would help in landing some of the top talents. This could be the class that can put them over the hump and possible rival the Class the ole Ball Coach had in 2007 to lay the groundwork for the success he had. 2020 class has started out with a bang. With the Ops building in full swing, this will be another exciting recruiting cycle to follow so let the commits commence!!
  17. Big Game against one of our biggest rivalries in the SEC. Another boarder battle. Dawgs tough as always. Top 3 in the nation. Playing for a national title. Will be No. 2 of 3 Gamecocks will face. The next at the end of season with Clemson. But that is for another time. Let's talk Bulldogs, here now. What you say lets vote. Can the Gamecocks upset Georgia in Athens? Yea, Na or don't know that is are poll question....
  18. WHOO-HOO!!!! DISCUSSION GAMEDAY THREAD: USC VS Kentucky Saturday Game-Time "7:30 pm ET" Inspired by cocky0 For detailed accounts & discussion with your fellow Gamecocks (PS SEND ALL WHOO-HOO!!!! To cocky0 for his records by PM.) South Carolina vs. Kentucky ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------- WHAT TIME DO THE GAMECOCKS PLAY? Who: Kentucky (2-2, 0-2 SEC) at South Carolina (1-3, 0-2) When: 7:30 p.m. Saturday Where: Williams-Brice Stadium (80,250), Columbia, S.C. TV: SEC Network (Tom Hart, play-by-play; Jordan Rodgers, analysis; Cole Cubelic, sideline) Radio: 107.5 FM (Todd Ellis, play-by-play; Tommy Suggs, analysis; Jamar Nesbit, sideline) ... See all the radio affiliates around the state here. Satellite radio: Sirius 136/XM 190 Stream: WatchESPN Line: South Carolina by 3 Gamecock Walk: Approx. 5:15 pm through Gamecock Park Series history: South Carolina leads the all-time series 17-12-1. The Wildcats have a five-game winning streak after losing 13 of 14. Weather: Partly cloudy. Temperature around 85 at kickoff, 78 at the end of the game. Chance of precipitation is 2% throughout. THE GAME South Carolina has lost a pair of potentially winnable games against Missouri and UNC and can ill-afford to drop another one. Even with a win here, the Gamecocks need an upset later on in the schedule to get to a bowl. Without a win, that bowl dream is done barring two surprise wins. There’s the little matter of the five-game UK winning streak, a black mark South Carolina would like to remove. The players said it’s just another game, but that history has some weight when it comes to fan sentiment. Kentucky is in a bit of a reset season after double-digit wins last year, but after two SEC losses, the Wildcats could use this one. Their schedule sets up well for a seven-win season, and this could put them on the path to eight. SOUTH CAROLINA PLAYERS TO WATCH 1. Quarterback Ryan Hilinski had a rough outing in his first road start and now has a little more on him. News broke Thursday that backup QB Dakereon Joyner will be held out of Saturday’s game for precautionary reasons. This season, Hilinski has thrown for 772 yards, five score and three interceptions. 2. Wide receiver Shi Smith has been good in spots this season but has yet to have that big statistical day. The Wildcats have been an average passing defense against some not-great passing offenses. Smith has 190 yards and a touchdown on 16 catches this year. 3. Sophomore safety R.J. Roderick will be called upon a little more now that Jamyest Williams has decided to transfer. He also could be needed because he’s probably South Carolina’s most sturdy defensive back and the Wildcats rely on a downhill running game. For the season, Roderick has 23 tackles, third on the team, one sack and one interception. KENTUCKY PLAYERS TO WATCH 1. Kash Daniel is as polarizing as SEC players come in 2019. The Kentucky linebacker was held out of the starting lineup Saturday at Mississippi State for his alleged twist of Florida quarterback Kyle Trask’s ankle the previous week. Daniel was ejected for targeting during last season’s South Carolina game. 2. After an injury to Terry Wilson, Kentucky has turned to Sawyer Smith at quarterback. The Troy transfer is 0-2 as a starter with two touchdowns and four interceptions. 3. Like he was for a lot of SEC defenses, Benny Snell was a thorn in South Carolina’s side. But Snell’s no longer in UK’s backfield, leaving the spotlight for Asim Rose. The junior running back is coming off a nine-carry, 105-yard showing in the Mississippi State loss.
  19. Game week 5: Talking Kentucky (Discussion Thread) Big week yes big game vs Kentucky. Gamecocks get their chance to break a 5 game losing streak Let's talk Kentucky and what it will take the Gamecocks to win in the COCK-PIT Saturday night? Whats up with Kentucky The Cats will look to snap their two-game losing skid when they take on the Gamecocks. The 2019 season is off to a rough start for the Kentucky Wildcats. After winning their first two games of the season, the Cats have dropped two in a row to start conference play 0-2. Not only have the Wildcats lost to Florida and Mississippi State, but they’ve lost their starting quarterback Terry Wilson for the season due to a torn patellar tendon. They are now starting a graduate transfer in Sawyer Smith, who’s playing with a bad shoulder and wrist. Needing a win to turn their season around, the Wildcats will head to Columbia next weekend to take on the South Carolina Gamecocks. Whats up with South Carolina The Gamecocks have had a rough start of their own this season, as they currently sit 1-3 overall and 0-2 in conference play. Like Kentucky, the Gamecocks lost their starting quarterback Jake Bentley to a season-ending injury. Both teams need the victory to turn their respective seasons around, making Saturday’s game crucial for both programs. While South Carolina leads the all-time series over Kentucky 17-12, it’s the Wildcats who have had the upper-hand of late, as they have won the last five matchups between the two schools, including two wins in Columbia. Can the Cats win a sixth straight over the Gamecocks? Here’s all some information you need to know for next Saturday.

To cocky0 for his records by PM.) South Carolina vs. Missouri ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------- WHAT TIME DO THE GAMECOCKS PLAY? Who: South Carolina (1-2) at Missouri (2-1) When: 4 p.m. Saturday Where: Faurot Field at Memorial Stadium (62,621) TV: SEC Network Alternate (Mike Morgan, play-by-play; Ray Bentley, analysis; Tera Talmadge, sideline) SEC Network Alternate channels in Columbia: DirecTV: Ch. 611 DISH Network: Ch. 404-02 through 404-05 AT&T UVerse: Ch. 1608 Verizon FiOS: Ch. 332/333/832 Spectrum: Ch. 385 Radio: 107.5 FM (Todd Ellis, play-by-play; Tommy Suggs, analysis; Jamar Nesbit, sideline) ... See all the radio affiliates around the state here. Satellite radio: Sirius 105/XM 385 Stream: WatchESPN Line: Missouri by 9 1/2 Series history: South Carolina leads the all-time series 5-4, riding a three-game winning streak. Since becoming SEC rivals in 2012, the teams have played for the Mayor’s Cup. Weather: A 50% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 81. Projected wind gusts of more than 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 43% at kickoff. WHAT’S ON THE LINE South Carolina badly needs this one to keep the dream of a bowl game alive this season. The 2019 campaign was always going to come down to the toss-ups, and after UNC surprisingly became one, this is the next toss-up. Freshman QB Ryan Hilinski looked like be belonged against the No. 2 team in the land, but now he’s going on the road in a game where USC has something to lose. The Gamecocks had little at risk against Alabama, but that changes now. The Tigers started the season with a surprise loss to Wyoming, but have bounced back quite nicely. ESPN’s FPI has them projected to win seven or eight games, and winning this one would be big for maintaining the Barry Odom era. SOUTH CAROLINA PLAYERS TO WATCH 1. Quarterback Ryan Hilinski is making his first road start after throwing for more than 300 yards against Alabama and earning SEC freshman of the week. He’s facing a defense that’s allowing fewer than 96 passing yards per game. 2. Running back Tavien Feaster has been explosive thus far in his Gamecocks tenure, but has yet to carry the ball more than 13 times in a game. Granted he’s splitting time with Rico Dowdle, but against Missouri’s stingy defense, South Carolina needs some threat on the ground. 3. Senior safety J.T. Ibe didn’t have the best day against Alabama, and the same could be said for USC’s whole secondary. Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp said they need to simply play better, and Ibe factors in there in a big way against a QB with almost 800 yards in three games. He has 10 tackles and a pass break up in two healthy games. MISSOURI PLAYERS TO WATCH 1. Kelly Bryant ranks only behind only LSU’s Joe Burrow and Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa in the SEC passing race. A threat with his legs at Clemson, Bryant has carried 24 times for just 26 yards — with a long of 12 — and no scores with Missouri. 2. Six different Tigers have made at least six catches this season, but Bryant’s most accomplished target remains Albert Okwuegbunam. The junior tight end — and Mackey Award candidate — has three touchdowns over Mizzou’s last two games. 3. Linebacker Nick Bolton was recognized as the SEC’s defensive player of the week on Sept. 9 after his 10-tackle, two-interception (including a pick-six) performance in the 38-7 West Virginia win. The sophomore ranks first in the SEC in INTs and sixth in tackles.
  22. Can the Gamecocks find 6 wins to be Bowl eligible for 2019 season? Sept. 14, 2019 Gamecocks stand at 1-2 heading up to the other Columbia to face Mizzu. I see 5 games left in the season as winnable, the Gamecocks could end the season at 6-6 if no slip ups and if one possible upset then the Gamecocks would bounce up to a 7-5 season for 2019. winnable games left on schedule include Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Appalachian St. Only potable upset to me is Florida here at home. 6-6 or 7-5 with an upset. Georgia , Clemson and Texas A&M not really going to happen now. GFC poll of the week can the Gamecocks win 6 or 7 games to go bowling in 2019?
  23. GAMECOCKFANATICS PLAYERS OF THE GAME: South Carolina Gamecocks vs Missouri Tigers Final: South Carolina (1-3, 0-2) 14 – Missouri (3-1, 1-0) 34 The South Carolina Gamecocks lose their first road conference game 34-14 to the Missouri Tigers. True Freshman Ryan Hilinski struggled to maintain his strong passing from the previous week against Alabama, and the Gamecock offense sputtered in the defeat. The Gamecock defense actually played its most aggressive game of the 2019 season, but it was too little against Missouri, which played the more balanced game today. The Gamecocks will now return home to prepare for the Kentucky Wildcats next week. Let’s start with the Gamecocks: OFFENSE WR Bryan Edwards: Edwards was again the workhorse for the Gamecock offense, with 6 receptions in 15 targeted plays for 113 yards, including an exciting 75-yard touchdown reception at the beginning of the 2nd half to pull USC within 3 to 17-14. Honorable Mention: TE Kyle Markway: Markway returned to his home state of Missouri with 3 receptions in 4 targeted plays, for 52 yards. DEFENSE DE Aaron Sterling: Sterling had 5 total tackles, with 2 tackles for loss, 1 QB sack, and a forced fumble. Honorable mention: DT Javon Kinlaw: Kinlaw was dominant in the interior, with 4 total tackles, 1 tackle for loss being a QB sack, and 1 pass break-up. Kinlaw’s stat line won’t show them, but he was in the Missouri backfield often, disrupting plays and keeping Bryant on his toes all game long. OFFENSE QB Kelly Bryant: Another dominant QB performance versus the Gamecock defense – Bryant started the game scuffling a bit in the passing game, but finished with 19 completions in 33 attempts for 227 yards, 2 tds and 1 int. He also had 17 rushing attempts for 77 yards (4.5 ypc). Honorable Mention: RB Larry Roundtree: Roundtree rushed for a game-high 88 yards in 23 carries (3.8 YPC). DEFENSE DT Kobie Whiteside: 3 total tackles, 2 tackle for loss – both being QB sacks - FS Xavier McKinney: 9 total tackles – 5 solo – with a tackle for loss, and an interception. Honorable Mention: DT Jordan Elliott: 2 total tackles, 1 tackle for loss which was a sack, 1 pass break-up. Both DTs Whiteside and Elliott were constantly disrupting the Gamecocks passing rhythm.
  24. Game week 4: Talking Missouri (Discussion Thread) Road trip first road game of the season. Charlotte was a neutral site. Gamecocks are 10 point dogs on the road this week. Can Hilinski first time on the road avoid the jitters the hostile crowd that will be on hand? Will the defense play a whole game on the SEC level. Many many more questions need answering. Gamecocks record stands at 1-2 with a much needed win if their are any hopes in 2019 season to go bowling. So sound off lets talk Gamecocks vs Tigers. Scouting South Carolina’s next opponent: Missouri 1. The Mayor’s Cup hasn’t been short on memorable games in recent years. Last season it produced a wild, weather-delayed 37-35 South Carolina win as Michael Scarnecchia starred in his lone start in a Gamecock uniform. This year, it’s about Ryan Hilinski’s first road start in garnet and black. The freshman continued to impress against Alabama. Now, he takes a bunch of “hungry, desperate” Gamecocks to Mizzou in an effort to avoid going 0-2 in the SEC for the first time since 2015. 2. A familiar face in a new uniform greets the Gamecocks in Kelly Bryant. The former Clemson quarterback won his only start against South Carolina in 2017, passing for 272 yards and two scores as the Tigers rolled, 34-10, at Williams-Brice Stadium. The graduate transfer has thrown for 798 yards with six touchdowns in three starts with Mizzou. 3. After the Hilinski-led effort in the Crimson Tide loss, South Carolina is up to 25th nationally in total offense. The trip to Missouri pits the Gamecocks against the nation’s fourth-ranked defense. Since allowing 37 points in a shocking loss to Wyoming in Week 1, the Tigers have allowed all of seven in wins over West Virginia and Southeast Missouri State. THREE MISSOURI PLAYERS TO WATCH 1. Kelly Bryant ranks only behind only LSU’s Joe Burrow and Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa in the SEC passing race. A threat with his legs at Clemson, Bryant has carried 24 times for just 26 yards — with a long of 12 — and no scores with Missouri. 2. Six different Tigers have made at least six catches this season, but Bryant’s most accomplished target remains Albert Okwuegbunam. The junior tight end — and Mackey Award candidate — has three touchdowns over Mizzou’s last two games. 3. Linebacker Nick Bolton was recognized as the SEC’s defensive player of the week on Sept. 9 after his 10-tackle, two-interception (including a pick-six) performance in the 38-7 West Virginia win. The sophomore ranks first in the SEC in INTs and sixth in tackles.
