  2. Belk Bowl: Saturday, December 29 12:00, ABC, Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, NC SOUTH CAROLINA Will the Gamecocks play up to their potential? They got rolled by Clemson, but the passing game blew up. They had Florida dead, right up until they collapsed in the loss. There wasn’t a win over a bowl team after beating Missouri in the first weekend of October, and there isn’t a truly strong win on the slate. Will Muschamp isn’t going to get fired with a loss, but lose, and he’ll be at the top of every offseason Hot Seat list. VIRGINIA The Cavaliers will always bring the fight and the effort, but are they going to be good enough if South Carolina plays at its best? The Cavaliers had some fun moments with wins over Miami and North Carolina, but it was always a fight to generate points. Losing three of the last four games – all in crushing fashion, including the overtime rivalry loss to Virginia Tech – the Cavs need this win. QB Bryce Perkins is fun, and the team plays close games. MY PREDICTION: SOUTH CAROLINA 35 VIRGINIA 21
  3. South Carolina Gamecocks vs. No 5 Michigan Wolverines Game info Who: South Carolina (4-4) at No. 5 Michigan (9-0) When: Noon Saturday Where: Crisler Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan KenPom prediction: Michigan 76, South Carolina 59 TV: Fox Sports 1 Radio: 107.5 The Game in Columbia area Series: South Carolina leads, 3-2 Last meeting: Nov. 23, 2016— South Carolina won 61-46 in Columbia STORYLINES 1. Wrong opponent at the wrong time South Carolina is off to its worst start since Frank Martin’s second season as USC coach. Its loss to previously 2-6 Wyoming on Wednesday featured 17 missed 3-pointers, 16 turnovers and a blown halftime lead. And now comes a legitimate Final Four contender. The back-end of a home-and-home series comes at contrasting times for these programs. Michigan already has wins over Villanova (by 27 points), Providence (by 19), North Carolina (by 17) and Purdue (by 19). National runners-up last March, the Wolverines appear ready for another deep postseason run. The Gamecocks, who also have No. 4 Virginia and Clemson left on the non-conference schedule, are looking at a below .500 record entering SEC play. 2. Shooting struggles vs. stout defense The Gamecocks have shot below 30 percent from 3 in four games this season, including the cold display against Wyoming’s 2-3 zone. They’re next-to-last in the SEC in overall field goal percentage. “Couldn’t make layups, couldn’t make 3s,” Martin said Wednesday after the Gamecocks went 22 of 66 from the floor. “Can’t go on the road and win if you can’t make layups. And you got to make some 3s.” Michigan enters Saturday as the No. 1 defense in the country, according to Ken Pomeroy’s efficiency rankings. How can USC create easy offense? Perhaps by establishing pace. The Gamecocks, according to KenPom, play at the nation’s 26th-quickest tempo. Michigan is No. 334 in KenPom’s tempo ratings. Getting transition looks will be key for USC. 3. Canada connection On the Saturday slate, there’s few college basketball games featuring better freshmen facing one another. USC’s A.J. Lawson (49) and Michigan’s Ignas Brazdeikis (50) are not only among The Athletic’s top 50 prospects for the 2019 NBA Draft, they’re both from Ontario. Lawson ranked as Canada’s fifth-best prospect in the 2018 class and Brazdeikis ranked sixth, according to NorthPoleHoops.com. MICHIGAN Coach: John Beilein (808-461 in 41 seasons overall; 12th season at Michigan — 257-143) Projected starters: G Jordan Poole (11.9 points per game), G Charles Matthews (13.3), G Zavier Simpson (6.8), F Ignas Brazdeikis (17.0), C Jon Teske (8.1) Last game: Beat Northwestern 62-60 on Tuesday in Evanston, Illinois KenPom ranking: 4 (No. 19 in offensive efficiency, No. 1 in defensive efficiency) Notes: The Wolverines went 1-1 against the SEC last season, including a 99-72 win over Texas A&M in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament. ... Michigan is No. 1 in the Big Ten in scoring defense (52.7 points per game), field goal percentage defense (35.3) and assist to turnover ratio (1.6). It’s second in the league in scoring margin (plus-19.2). ... The Wolverines have won 23 of their past 24 games, with the only loss coming to Villanova in the 2018 national championship. SOUTH CAROLINA Coach: Frank Martin (234-148 in 12 seasons overall; seventh season at USC — 117-94) Projected starters: G T.J. Moss (7.0), G A.J. Lawson (14.9), F Keyshawn Bryant (8.0), F Chris Silva (10.3), F Maik Kotsar (7.9) Last game: Fell to Wyoming 73-64 on Wednesday in Laramie, Wyoming KenPom ranking: 104 (No. 173 in offense efficiency, No. 45 in defense efficiency) Notes: In the first 10 minutes of the second half, the Gamecocks have been outscored by 21 points this season. They’re plus-52 in the other 30 minutes. ... Silva set a season-high for shot attempts (14), but a near season-low for field goal percentage (21.4) at Wyoming. ... After logging a combined 73 minutes against Wofford and Coastal Carolina, Hassani Gravett played a season-low 18 minutes in the Wyoming loss. He scored two points.
  4. https://www.si.com/college-football/...-viewers-guide 21. Belk Bowl: South Carolina vs. Virginia (Dec. 29, Noon ET) Virginia probably doesn’t have the offensive weapons to hang with South Carolina, even without Deebo Samuel. It doesn’t help this game’s case that it’s at the exact same time as a fun Peach Bowl Virginia Cavaliers Football Highlights (10 games) For those of you who haven't seen Virginia's football team play this season, check the links below. Bryce Perkins (#3) is a dual-threat QB that may give our defense issues with his legs. They run a lot of Pistol sets with zone read principles. Olamide Zaccheaus (#4) is their version of Deebo. He's their biggest weapon on offense. Joe Reed (#2) is a solid WR as well. On defense, their OLB Charles Snowden (#11) is 6'7"! Jake definitely has to make sure avoid getting his passes batted down. They have a strong secondary led by SS Juan Thornhill (#21). This game will not be a cakewalk, so the Gamecocks better be prepared to play. If we avoid turnovers and prevent Perkins from running wild, I think we will come away with a solid win. .vs Richmond .vs Indiana .vs Ohio (game was played at Vandy due to hurricane) .vs Louisville .vs UNC .vs NC State .vs Miami .vs Duke .vs Pitt .vs VA Tech
  5. looking like Coach Bobby Bentley being courted by Auburn as OC. That is what has been floating around on all the boards. Malzahn is really on a very big hot seat. If Bently takes it might well be a very short term. If it does go down that way look for Marcus Lattimore to step in an be the new RB coach. We sell see, has to play out.
  6. South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Wyoming Cowboys STARTING FIVE> After splitting a pair of games last week versus intrastate foes, Carolina hits the road for its first road games of the season this week, first at Wyoming on Wednesday, before a showdown with nationally ranked Michigan on Saturday in Ann Arbor. Carolina was 4-8 in road contests last season, including a 2-1 mark in non-conference road matchups.> Rookie guard A.J. Lawson scored 25, and senior guard Hassani Gravett added 23, when the Gamecocks posted an 85-79 win over Coastal Carolina last Friday. The duo combined for 48 of Carolina's 85, with both guards hitting a career high in the win. Lawson was also 11-of-15 at the line, and Gravett scored the bulk of his points with a 4-of-7 mark from 3-point range.> Wednesday's matchup will once again pit teacher and pupil against eachother for the second straight season. Gamecock head coach Frank Martincoached Wyoming's Allen Edwards at Miami Senior High School, before Edwards would go on to star at Kentucky. Allen's brother, Doug Edwards, a standout at Florida State, also played under Martin at Miami Senior, and is in his seventh season as the Director of Player Development for the Gamecocks.> One of Carolina's strengths this season on the offensive end is its balanced scoring. Eight Gamecocks average 7.0 points per game or better, with three - Lawson (14.9), Gravett (11.1) and senior forward Chris Silva (10.3) - in double figures.> In last season's meeting against the Cowboys, Silva tallied 19 points to go along with 10 rebounds, and then-freshman forward Felipe Haase scored a career high 17 points, to pace the Gamecocks in the 80-64 win. Wyoming closed Carolina's halftime lead to three points early in the second half, but the Gamecocks responded with a 21-6 run and led by double digits the rest of the way. SCOUTING THE COWBOYS> Wyoming is 2-6 on the year and the Cowboys have suffered two-straight losses entering Wednesday's contest against Carolina.> Wyoming's two wins this season have come against Grambling State and Richmond. > The Cowboys are averaging 73.1 points per game this season, led by four in double-figures. > Senior guard Justin James has scored 199 points through the first eight games, and leads the team in points (24.9), rebounds (9.8), assists (4.1) and steals (1.1) per game.> Sophomore guard Hunter Maldonado (15.2), r-freshman forward Hunter Thompson (13.3) and junior guard Jake Hendricks (11.0) are also in double figures.> James tallied 25 points with eight rebounds and five assists in the team's most recent outing, an 85-80 loss to Northern Colorado.> Wyoming opponents are averaging 79.2 points per game this season and out-rebounding the Cowboys by a +3.4 margin. SCOUTING THE GAMECOCKS> The Gamecocks hit the road for the first time this season at Wyoming and Michigan this week.> Carolina is 1-1 in games played away from home, with those contests coming at the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament. The Gamecocks suffered a loss to Providence, before posting a 35-point win over George Washington.> Carolina has played solid offense through the first seven games of the campaign, hitting 40 percent or better in five games, including a mark of 43.1 percent (25-58) in last Friday's win over Coastal Carolina.> Three average double-figure points for the Gamecocks in A.J. Lawson, Chris Silva and Hassani Gravett. On the year, the trio is averaging 36.1 points per game.> Last season, Carolina averaged 66.8 points per game in road contests, with Silva averaging a team high 14.3 points and 9.3 rebounds in those contests. The Gamecocks were 4-8 on the road last season with wins at Wofford, FIU, Georgia and at nationally ranked Florida.> South Carolina returns seven letterwinners from last season's 17-16 squad, including senior guard Hassani Gravett and senior forward Chris Silva.> Carolina welcomes eight newcomers to its roster this season, including a pair of transfers and six freshmen student-athletes. Jair Bolden(transfer/George Washington/guard), graduate transfer Tre Campbell (transfer/Georgetown/guard), Keyshawn Bryant (freshman/guard), Jermaine Couisnard (freshman/guard), Alanzo Frink (freshman/forward), A.J. Lawson (freshman/guard), T.J. Moss (freshman/guard) and Nathan Nelson(freshman/forward) join the Garnet and Black this fall.
  7. Been a while since the last time these two faced off on the Grid Iron How they fared in 2018 South Carolina finished the season with a 7-5 overall record (4-4 SEC) and tied for third in the SEC East Division. This is their third-straight bowl appearance. The Gamecocks have won five of their last six bowl games. Virginia finished the season with a 7-5 overall record (4-4 ACC). They finished tied for third in the ACC Coastal Division. The two should match up pretty evenly. Who do you think will come out on top?

Yds./Game 445.3 297.5 Opp. Total Yds/Game 440.3 388.5 What’s at stake The Gamecocks are looking to reach seven wins for the second consecutive season and guarantee a final record above .500. This is also a chance to quarterback Jake Bentley to add to his statistical totals. He’s already in the program’s top 10 in passing yards for a season. Akron has been disappointing this year, outside an upset of Northwestern. Another Power Five win would help on that front. South Carolina players to watch 1. South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley has been on quite a run, capped by a 510-yard, five-touchdown performance against Clemson. This could be another chance for some numbers, and maybe a chance to solidify a possible draft stock. For the season, he has 2,754 yards, 24 touchdowns, 10 interceptions and a 155.1 rating. 2. Running back Mon Denson has managed to emerge as South Carolina’s top back down the stretch, as much for health reasons as anything else. He could get a lot of work against a Zips squad that is better against the pass than the run. He has 305 yards at 4.7 per carry this season. 3. Corner Rashad Fenton will have to help corral a passing game that hasn’t been good, but does have a few solid receivers. Andre Williams has 649 yards, and No. 2 Kwadarrius Smith averages 17.4 yards.

  9. South Carolina Gamecocks vs Akron Zips Dec. 01, 12:00pm 7-5 that's what's on the line against Akron. Gamecocks should walk away to end the regular season at 7-5 With a bowl offer from the Gator or Belk bowl respectfully. Gamecocks should be able to score amble enough points with their offense to come out with a big win to close out the regular season and go into the bowl season. Prediction: South Carolina 58 Akron 21
  10. Gamecocks show now that they have an offense that can score points and gain yards against any team in the nation. Can the Gamecocks run up 700 yards on offense? Can they score 60 or more on the Zips? The defense which has been devastated with injuries is really keeping the Gamecocks from an 8-9 win season. Gamecocks should finish 7-5 along with a lower-tier bowl in hand. GO COCKS BEAT AKRON!!

The 13 makes from beyond the arc tied for the second-most all-time under the direction of head coach Frank Martin.> George Washington connected on just 16-of-58 attempts from the field in the Nov. 18 matchup with the Gamecocks, including just four makes in the opening half. GW's mark of 27.6 percent from the field in the matchup was the lowest by an opponent this season, and the lowest since Limestone connected on just 25 percent (13-52) of its attempts in a Carolina win on Dec. 27, 2017.> Senior forward Chris Silva struggled in Carolina's Nov. 17 matchup vs. Providence, in foul trouble for most of the contest, but he came back to post his 17th-career double-double with team highs of 20 points and 10 rebounds in the win vs. GW the following day. Silva is averaging 10.8 points and a team high 6.0 rebounds per game this season. SCOUTING THE GAMECOCKS> Carolina returns home for a pair of non-conference matchups this week, first against Wofford, before hosting Coastal Carolina on Friday. Up next for the Gamecocks is a two-game road swing at Wyoming (Dec. 5) and at No. 9/8 Michigan (Dec. 8).> Rookie guard A.J. Lawson was named to the Hall of Fame Tip-Off All-Tournament Team (Naismith Bracket) after posting double-figures in both contests at Mohegan Sun Arena. He tallied 10 in the loss to Providence, before a 19-point, 9-rebound, 5-assist effort in the big win vs. George Washington. He paces Carolina with 15.8 points per game this season.> Senior forward Chris Silva has hit 22-of-29 (75.9%) attempts from the free throw line through his first five games of the season. To compare, through his first five games of last season, he was 32-of-41 (78.0%) from the stripe.> Sophomore forward Justin Minaya has been very active around the rim early this season. He is averaging 5.6 rebounds per outing, +1.2 on his career average, and he has connected on 13-of-18 (72.2%) of his 2-point attempts this season.> South Carolina returns seven letterwinners from last season's 17-16 squad, including senior guard Hassani Gravett and senior forward Chris Silva.> Carolina welcomes eight newcomers to its roster this season, including a pair of transfers and six freshmen student-athletes. Jair Bolden(transfer/George Washington/guard), graduate transfer Tre Campbell (transfer/Georgetown/guard), Keyshawn Bryant (freshman/guard), Jermaine Couisnard (freshman/guard), Alanzo Frink (freshman/forward), A.J. Lawson (freshman/guard), T.J. Moss (freshman/guard) and Nathan Nelson(freshman/forward) join the Garnet and Black this fall.SCOUTING THE TERRIERS> Wofford is led by head coach Mike Young in his 17th season at the helm of the Terrier program. > Wofford finished last season with a 21-13 overall record, and the Terriers return four starters from last year's squad that advanced to the CIT Postseason Tournament.> Leading the pack is senior guard Fletcher Magee. Magee paces the Terriers this season with 18.5 points per game. He has already attempted 64 3-point baskets, making 26 for a mark of 40.6% from beyond the arc.> Magee was named the Southern Conference Player of the Year last season, when he led the NCAA in total 3s made (148), which was fifth all-time in NCAA DI history for 3s in a single season.> Senior forward Cameron Jackson leads the Terriers with 8.4 rebounds per game, including 3.0 on the offensive glass per game.> Wofford is averaging 81.5 points per game on the season, holding opponents to just 59.9.
  14. GAMECOCK-GAMEDAY THREAD: ***South Carolina vs. Clemson *** November 23, 2018 South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Clemson Tigers South Carolina and Clemson football will face off in the Palmetto Bowl in Death Valley. Here’s what you need to know about the game: What time do the Gamecocks and Tigers play? Who: Clemson (11-0) vs. South Carolina (6-4) When: 7 p.m. Saturday Where: Clemson Memorial Stadium (81,500) Series history: Clemson leads the series 69–42–4. South Carolina has lost four in a row after winning five in a row.

Satellite radio: Sirius 119/XM 381 Line: Clemson by 26 1/2 Weather: Partly cloudy, with a low around 44. A 13 percent chance of rain. Around 50 degrees at kickoff, 47 at the end of the game. What’s at stake For South South Carolina, it’s a chance to finally get off the four-year snide and actually top a Clemson squad that is among the best in the country. It would also be the biggest win of the Will Muschamp era and an important step as he builds his program. The Tigers have the chance to finish an undefeated, untied regular season for the fourth time in school history. It would also bring them a step closer to the College Football Playoff, as they’re in the driver’s seat for a spot. Even if South Carolina loses, there would be value in just competing, as USC hasn’t been close in either of the past two games, notably the 56-7 game in 2016. .ms-contemp-main { border-style: none; } .ms-contemp-tl { font-weight: bold; color: black; border-left-style: none; border-right: 2.25pt solid white; border-top: 2.25pt solid white; border-bottom-style: none; } .ms-contemp-left { font-weight: normal; color: black; border-left-style: none; border-right: 2.25pt solid white; border-top: 2.25pt solid white; border-bottom-style: none; } .ms-contemp-top { font-weight: bold; color: black; border-left-style: none; border-right: 2.25pt solid white; border-top: 2.25pt solid white; border-bottom-style: none; } .ms-contemp-even { font-weight: normal; color: black; border-left-style: none; border-right: 2.25pt solid white; border-top: 2.25pt solid white; border-bottom-style: none; background-color: #CCCCCC; } .ms-contemp-odd { font-weight: normal; color: black; border-left-style: none; border-right: 2.25pt solid white; border-top: 2.25pt solid white; border-bottom-style: none; background-color: #F2F2F2; } The teams, by the numbers USC CLEM Points/Game 32.8 44.7 Opp. Points/Game 26.7 12.1 Yds.

Yds./Game 429.8 520.5 Opp. Total Yds/Game 409.9 254.4 South Carolina players to watch 1. South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley has been on a hot streak of late, and USC will need him at his best to have a chance. The Gamecocks will need to score in bunches, and the most big plays on this team come from the passing game. For the season, he has 2,244 yards, 19 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. 2. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel is South Carolina’s best big-play threat and probably its top talent overall. He hasn’t been consistent in delivering big plays, but he’ll need a few for USC to have a chance. He’s got 48 catches for 639 yards and six scores. 3. Freshman safety R.J. Roderick will be tested as he’s still new to the position, thrust into the starting lineup and at a spot where the depth has been obliterated. The former quarterback is next to Steven Montac, who has had tackling issues, with an injured freshman corner (Jaycee Horn) and another starting corner (Rashad Fenton) as backups. Clemson players to watch 1. Defensive tackle Christian Wilkins is not just the best player on Clemson’s defense, but the senior is also the heart and soul of the Tigers’ team. Wilkins will be highly motivated to finish off his career at Death Valley with a win against South Carolina, and he has been living in the opponent’s backfield this season. If the Tigers get a big lead don’t be surprised if Wilkins finally gets his shot to play a little quarterback as well. 2. South Carolina’s secondary is banged up and Clemson has plenty of talented receivers that will be going up against a young and inexperienced group. Sophomore Tee Higgins is the best of the bunch. The Tennessee native leads the Tigers with 43 catches for 624 yards and seven touchdowns in 2018. 3. The Gamecocks have struggled against the run this season, and now they must try to slow down one of the best backs in the nation in Travis Etienne. USC is No. 92 nationally in rushing yards allowed per game at 190.1, and the Gamecocks allowed 367 rushing yards in their last road game at Florida. Etienne has topped the 100-yard mark five times this season.He has 1,157 rushing yards, is averaging 6.2 yards per carry and has tied a school record with 17 rushing touchdowns. .ms-elegant-main { border: 2.25pt double black; background-color: white; } .ms-elegant-tl { font-family: small-caps; font-weight: normal; color: black; border-left-style: none; border-right: .75pt solid black; border-top-style: none; border-bottom: .75pt solid black; background-color: white; } .ms-elegant-left { font-weight: normal; color: black; border-left-style: none; border-right: .75pt solid black; border-top-style: none; border-bottom: .75pt solid black; background-color: white; } .ms-elegant-top { font-family: small-caps; font-weight: normal; color: black; border-left-style: none; border-right: .75pt solid black; border-top-style: none; border-bottom: .75pt solid black; background-color: white; } .ms-elegant-even { font-weight: normal; color: black; border-left-style: none; border-right: .75pt solid black; border-top-style: none; border-bottom: .75pt solid black; background-color: white; } .auto-style5 { font-weight: normal; color: black; border-left-style: none; border-right: .75pt solid black; border-top-style: none; border-bottom: .75pt solid black; background-color: white; font-size: small; } South Carolina depth chart OFFENSE DEFENSE Deebo Samuel (Josh Vann) WR D.J.

  15. Where will the Gamecocks go bowling in 2018? November 25, 2018 Which bowl game do you favor out of the Gamecocks choices? Gamecocks have several possibilities Below is a list of several bowl option for the 2018 Gamecocks ACADEMY SPORTS + OUTDOOR TEXAS BOWL - DEC. 27, 9 P.M. ESPN South Carolina has never played in the Academy Sports + Outdoor Texas Bowl in program history. In fact, the program has never played a bowl game in the state of Texas. Should this matchup come to fruition, it would also be the first time in program history that South Carolina has played Texas Tech in football. Texas Bowl vs. Texas Tech FRANKLIN AMERICAN MORTGAGE MUSIC CITY BOWL - DEC. 28, 1:30 P.M. ESPN South Carolina has already made one trip to Nashville, Tenn. this season, the site of the Music City Bowl, and beat Vanderbilt earlier this season. The Gamecocks have never played in the Music City Bowl before, but do have a history with N.C. State, including last year’s season-opening victory against the Wolfpack. Stadium: Brett McMurphy - N.C. State BELK BOWL - DEC. 29, NOON ABC South Carolina has never played in the Belk Bowl, but there is, certainly, a tradition of playing games in Charlotte at Bank of America Stadium. The Gamecocks were there last year to take on N.C. State and will be back next year to battle North Carolina. Belk Bowl vs. Duke or Virginia AUTOZONE LIBERTY BOWL - DEC. 31, 3:45 P.M., ESPN The AutoZone Liberty Bowl has three projections with South Carolina visiting Memphis, Tenn. The Gamecocks are 1-1 there all-time with the last visit being a shootout win over Houston in 2006. The team also lost in 1988 to Indiana by a 24-point margin. Liberty Bowl vs. Baylor or Oklahoma State TAXSLAYER GATOR BOWL - DEC. 31 7:30 P.M., ESPN It was reported by Brad Crawford that SC vs Miami in Gator Bowl is a very strong possibility. I’m sure that assumes the Gamecocks take care of business against Akron. OTHER OPTIONS? The two lowest-ranked bowls that have tie-ins to the Southeastern Conference are the Walk-On’s Liberty Bowl and the Birmingham Bowl. Looks like the SEC Does not have enough SEC schools to fill the Birmingham or Liberty Bowl. TaxSlayer Gator Bowl in Jacksonville has not been ruled out but doubtful at this point. Their only chance for a Florida destination.
  16. South Carolina Gamecocks vs Clemson Tigers Nov. 24, 7:00pm Most of us who love & follow the Gamecocks figure this coming Saturday a for sure loss. Just not a loss but a stumping at the hated Taters. Few things to go over which will look like gloom & doom but adds into my so-called prediction and possible outcome. Leading into it. I love old moves and history. Now say what the hell has that got to do with the big game. Well, my first thoughts where David Crockett and the Texans facing a Mexican army that outnumbered them a hundredfold. Knowing they were going to die they stood their ground and really no contest. In a lot of ways, the Gamecocks are facing about the same odds, Just not a life or death like the Alamo. So what's that mean. Time for another, This one from the Bible best book you can ever read and highly recommend for everyone to read. David & Goliath. Everyone knows the history there. Instead of both armies fighting Yong sheepherder name David fights and kills the Giant Goliath the biggest badest of all the fighters on both sides all the Israelite soldiers were scared to fight just young boy named David faced on the field with a stone and slingshot. Miracle, believe that it could be done. Yes, we all know God favored David and love him. But still Miracle. Miracles can come in many ways. In September I was diagnosed with Kidney cancer. Not the best news to receive and it looked bad. So within a few weeks, I was under the knife in mid-October. 4 hours it took for the operation had 5 incisions to remove the tumor. After the operation and recovery, I was to start the chemo and radiation treatments. everything was set up to go, just waiting on the lab report to see if it had spread into the kidney tissue or worse other areas of my body. The 5-day wait seemed forever. Got the call to meet with my doctors and so I went not knowing how bad and when to start the treatments. Took my seat in the lobby they called me in, my doctor looked at me and a smile. Man, this must be bad he is trying to put me at ease. A Pause then he said the Cancer was a capsulated tumor. We were able to remove the tumor the tissues around the tumor is negative. YOU WILL NOT NEED ANY TREATMENTS. Just need to run the test every 3 months for a couple of years. To make sure nothing shows up. When waking out from the lobby the ladies looked at me behind the counters and asked me how did I far, I gave them a thumbs up and they all exploded in joy clapping and all that. Leaving I had a tear in my eye rolling down my chic, knowing I just had my miracle. Now my prediction: Gamecocks will need a miracle. Will it happen odds are it won't but there is always that chance. We just have to what till Saturday night to find out. GO COCKS WIN OR LOSE AWAYS A GAMECOCK!! Want to say thank you, fine folks, for joining the GamecockFanatics and being part of the family here. Thanks so much cannot thank you all enough. In closing, hope all have an enjoyable Thanksgiving. Love the one beside you they are a gift. Remember in your prayers to pray for our fellow citizen in California, the fires have really taken a toll in life along many many still missing. So many have lost their homes. Having to live in the parking lost in tents. Loved ones missing or dead. So many homeless. 71 dead 1000+ missing more then 10,000 homes destroyed. So sad really hard to enjoy the Holiday knowing so many are hurting. God bless you all let's keep em in our prayers!!
  17. It's here rivalry week!! Gamecocks face off against Clemson in the Valley. Tigers are on another heading into the playoff most likely if all goes the way it is suppose to. Hopefully, the Gamecocks can pull off a miracle upset. That's what it would be if it happens. My question to you fanatics is, What will it take to have a miracle in the Valley? Maybe Clemson just has an off night looking ahead to playing for the ACC crown? Bentley plays lights out, running backs control the clock keeping the Gamecocks defense for the most part on the sidelines? What do you all say?

  19. Will Muschamp promises wrinkles, ‘window dressing’ on offense vs Clemson November 21, 2018 THE STATE Two seasons ago in Clemson, South Carolina’s football team took some swings early in the first few drives against the Tigers and caught a vicious counterpunch. Last year, things were a little tighter, give or take some up-tempo, and USC kept the game close for a little longer. The Gamecocks offense is under new management with Bryan McClendon, and his boss, Will Muschamp, said there will be some wrinkles in the offensive gameplan come Saturday in Death Valley. “Bryan and the offensive staff have done a really good job of narrowing some things down early in the week as far as our openers are concerned,” Muschamp said on his weekly call-in show. “They’re doing some different things, whether it be formation, shift, motion, tempo, whatever it is. But we’re not doing so much where our guys are confused.” How does a team do that? It happens not as much in doing many different things, but doing the things they do best a little differently. “It’s the same run concepts, the same pass concepts,” Muschamp said. “But we’re giving them what I call window dressing to the defense, which disguises what we’re doing a little bit.” USC’s offense has been on a good run since the second half of the Texas A&M game. Across that stretch of admittedly weaker defenses, USC has averaged 38.8 points and 7 yards per play. They Tigers are allowing 3.9 yards per play, No. 1 in the country, and have held USC to 3.8 yards per play each of the past two years (the worst and second worst outputs for units that weren’t all that good). USC will have backs Rico Dowdle and Ty’Son Williams a little hobbled but available. The Gamecocks will have the likes of runners A.J. Turner and Mon Denson ready, along with receivers Deebo Samuel, Shi Smith, Bryan Edwards and Jake Bentley at the helm. They’ll be facing a defense loaded with NFL talent, led by a line that could see four taken in the first round of the pro draft. Scoring on that group is a tall task for any offense anywhere. But South Carolina is hoping a little window dressing atop the things it already does well is enough to at least get started out of the gate. “I think that our guys are able to play fast,” Muschamp said. “They’re able to react, they’re not thinking, and they’ve got a tremendous amount of confidence in what we’re doing.”
  20. ***South Carolina Gamecocks vs Chattanooga Mocs*** Gamecocks have a chance to clinch bowl eligibility. Here’s what you need to know about the game: What time do the Gamecocks play? Who: Chattanooga (6-4) vs. South Carolina (5-4) When: 7:30 p.m. Saturday Where: Williams-Brice Stadium (80,250) Series history: This is the first meeting between the teams. South Carolina has won its past two games against FCS opponents. TV: SEC Network Alternate (Mike Morgan, play-by-play; Barrett Jones, analysis; Alyssa Lang, sideline) Radio: 107.5 FM (Todd Ellis, play-by-play; Tommy Suggs, analysis; Langston Moore, sideline) ... See all the radio affiliates around the state here. Satellite radio: Sirius 135/XM 207 Line: Gamecocks by 30 1/2 Weather: Mostly clear, with a low around 41. No chance of rain. Around 51 degrees at kickoff, 44 at the end of the game. What’s at stake Coming off the disappointing loss to Florida, the Gamecocks have to turn their attention toward getting bowl eligible. A win Saturday guarantees that, which would make Will Muschamp 3 for 3 at reaching the postseason. The game also could be a chance for South Carolina to play its younger players, assuming it pulls ahead by a good bit. With the new redshirt rule in place, USC can play freshmen in four games, and the team has only four more games on the schedule. The Mocs are looking for what every non-powerhouse FCS team is in this spot: The chance to topple a team from the higher subdivision. At 5-4, Chattanooga has a long shot to do it, but that’s why they play the games. The teams, by the numbers USC CHAT Points/Game 31.0 22.7 Opp. Points/Game 28.7 18.2 Yds.

Yds./Game 410.7 346.0 Opp. Total Yds/Game 418.3 339.6 South Carolina players to watch 1. South Carolina running back Rico Dowdle hardly played against Florida because of an ankle injury. The team might not need him or Ty’Son Williams against FCS Chattanooga, but getting both back would help going into Clemson. For the season, Dowdle has 100 carries for 504 yards and four touchdowns. 2. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel delivered his first 100-yard receiving game of the season against Florida. With 527 yards and five touchdowns, this week should provide the chance for adding to what has been a statistically underwhelming season. 3. Grad transfer safety J.T. Ibe is questionable to come back from a knee injury that sidelined him for most of the season. The Gamecocks need him purely for depth reasons, as the Gamecocks have two healthy safeties and then a corner at the position. Chattanooga players to watch 1. Chattanooga receiver Bryce Nunnelly set a program record earlier this season when he recorded four 100-yard receiving games in a row The 6-foot-2, 190-pound sophomore has made 74 catches for 1,096 yards and seven touchdowns in 2018. 2. Quarterback Nick Tiano threw for 300-plus yards in consecutive games earlier this season. That was a first by a Moc since B.J. Coleman in 2010. Tiano, a 6-5, 240-pound junior, is a former three-star prospect who began his career at Mississippi State. He appeared in six games as a Bulldog freshman in 2016. 3. Chattanooga entered last weekend 12th in the FCS in scoring defense and 10th in turnover margin. Linebacker Marshall Cooper is at the heart of the Mocs’ defensive unit. He leads the team with 89 tackles. He’s also forced a couple fumbles and has an interception.

  23. Well, not much to talk about just win get bowl eligible then get ready for Clemson and hope they can stay within 27 points vs Clemson. then the Zip to close out the regular season. Kinda of a ho-hum season. Really defense needs a major overhaul. But we will save that for the 2019 season.
  24. South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Chattanooga Mocs  Nov. 17, 7:30pm The Mocs will provide a good breather before the Clemson game and make the Gamecocks bowl eligible for the 3rd year in a row. I think the Gamecocks defense should be able to handle the Mocs offense. What’s Going To Happen This is more than just a relaxing scrimmage between the road showdowns against Florida and Clemson. South Carolina is coming off an ugly meltdown against Florida, blowing a big lead in a 35-31 loss. It still needs to be bowl eligible, and it’s going to take something special to hang around in the rivalry date against the Tigers. Just to show it can, USC has to come up with a blowout. Each of the last five Gamecock games have been decided by four points or fewer, and Chattanooga has just enough of a defense to be annoying. The Mocs don’t have a ground game, and the offense isn’t explosive, but the defense is among the best in the FCS in takeaways thanks to a terrific secondary. There can’t be any drama for the Gamecocks. Get up early on a few scoring drives, and that should be enough against a team that failed to score more than 14 points in four of the last six games. The USC offense will lose a turnover to let the Mocs hang around a wee bit, but the punting game will take over and the field will be tilted for most of the evening. The Gamecock defense will be fantastic in the second half – Chattanooga won’t run the ball a lick – and the team will have its easy win for bowl eligibility. The Mocs will provide a good breather before the Clemson game and make the Gamecocks bowl eligible for the 3rd year in a row. I think the Gamecocks defense should be able to handle the Mocs offense. Pick: South Carolina 42, Chattanooga Mocs 14
  25. Yes, Gamecock will go bowling should be 6-4 going into the Clemson game. But really this will be the last chance for the Gamecocks have to but a positive spin on the season by beating Clemson. Which in itself will be like David and Goliath. Yes, David did win. Gamecocks will need help just like David. Gamecocks will need help in ways like turnovers by the Tigers, off night by Clemson's mighty defense and there very potent offense. Gamecocks defense will have to show up, something they have not shown the past three years. Bently must play lights out, the running game will have to play a crucial part in time procession and the receivers catching in the clutch. Will take a perfect game by the Gamecocks and that still might not be enough. Clemson is that good. I figure Gamecocks will be double-digit underdogs. It could be a very ugly game. I could see Clemson beating Gamecocks by 27 plus. The game is at Death Vallery and they are playing for a natty. In closing a 7-5 season really is a step back. and with the 2019 slate looking even tougher with Alabama, Clemson, and Georgia loom for the 2019 schedule. All three are contenders to win the natty this year. Next season could be more of the same maybe even worse win-wise. So, after all, said. What are the chances the Gamecocks can beat Clemson?
