  2. Seems lately day games are taking over. Really miss the night games especially in September when it is so hot!! Who here prefer night games over Day games? Just seems to be more electricity in the air at night. Just makes the day more enjoyable tailgating cooking and little beer.

  5. All Gamecock Fans want a win here by having DE Jordan Burch the number 1 Gamecock get for the 2020 recruiting circle. Gamecocks stand in excellent shape. So where will he make a pledge too? Poll Question of the Week: Hammond DE Jordan Burch will commit to?
  6. 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!!
  7. Now that Feaster is in the fold few question that will be answered by year's end July 29, 2019 Poll question is what kind of impact will RB Tavien Feaster have for the Gamecocks in 2019? Major Impact Minor Impact Minimum Impact No impact Don't No So South Carolina just added another body to its running back room In Tavien Feaster, the Gamecocks get a football player with experience in a Power 5 league. He might well step in as the team’s most talented tailback just by joining the roster. Three question now: What does this mean for the Gamecocks backfield and what it does not mean in 2019? How does if effect recruiting? 1.) What does this mean for the Gamecocks backfield in 2019? If Feaster is as good as many hope, he could give the Gamecocks the No. 1 tailback they’ve not truly had since the end of 2016, when a freshman Rico Dowdle carried the load and looked like a possible workhorse. Dowdle is still there, plus Mon Denson, A.J. Turner and a trio of underclassmen. But if Feaster is as advertised, there’s a good chance he could be better than all of them. At 5-foot-11, 216 pounds, he’s not necessarily a power guy, but he can do well enough there. When he was a Spartanburg High School star and the No. 29 recruit in the country, his speed was his top attribute, and that came through at times in Clemson. Two years ago, on carries when he gained at least five yards, he averaged 12.5, a pretty good number to show big-play potential. His explosiveness was down last season, but his efficiency rose significantly. He’s a guy blessed with the ability to make plays, and that’s what the Gamecocks need. Last season, there was a repeated refrain that the offensive line was mostly doing its job, but backs were not making opponents miss or breaking the needed tackle to turn a 2- to 3-yard gain into a bigger play. Feaster has the potential to fix that issue and take one of the top two spots the team projects to have in its backfield. In three years in the Upstate, he averaged 6 yards a carry and posted 1,330 yards in modest roles in the backfield. 2.) What it does not mean? Although Feaster has the ability to step in and possibly become the lead back in his lone season on campus, him doing that is not a slam dunk. Transfers often get a bit of a sheen to them. Many, like Feaster, have experience somewhere else, showing they’re at least good enough to carve out a role. Some merely came with a lot of recruiting hype and talent. But that hasn’t always guaranteed much success in Columbia. In the Muschamp era, USC has added the likes of Ty’Son Williams, J.T. Ibe, Nick Harvey, Josh Belk and Jamel Cook. Williams had promise as a top back, but it never happened. Harvey and Belk lasted less than a year, neither making much impact. Ibe lost a year to injury. And after a season in the program, Cook didn’t get glowing reviews from Muschamp. That’s not to say Feaster can’t rise up as USC’s No. 1 tailback and deliver a sterling season, but it’s just not close to a given. The next questions revolve around what kind of production he can deliver. Is 500 yards a good showing? Is 750? Hitting 900 or more would probably reach that point, as the Gamecocks haven’t seen a back top 764 yards since 2014. 3.) How does if effect recruiting? The addition squeezes the numbers a little tighter on the 2020 class. The Gamecocks have now added three players whose scholarships will count toward the next class, including two grad transfers who will only be around for one season. That puts USC at eight spots left for 2020 with 14 committed. USC probably will add at least another tight end, maybe another running back and wide receiver, plus at least one more linebacker and a few more defensive linemen. But if it pays off turning even one game in 2019, it’s worth it.
  8. Poll Question of the Week: How many TD passes will Jake Bentley have this season? Jake has had a good spring and summer leading into his final campaign as a Gamecock. Will have to preform to take the team through a very difficult schedule.

  12. Senior Bowl director Jim Nagy ‘impressed’ by Jake Bentley at Manning Academy July 03, 2019 Longtime NFL scout Jim Nagy was part of organizations that won four Super Bowls and playing in two more across 18 years.After this weekend, he’s impressed with South Carolina quarterback Jake Bentley. The rising Gamecock senior was at the Manning Passing Academy. He ended up winning the “Air it Out” accuracy competition. He also got the attention of Nagy. Bentley has struggled with consistency at times in his career. Overthrows and interceptions were a problem in the first half of 2018, but he balanced out in the second half to round out one of the most productive seasons in program history.
  13. Next up besides Clemson. Who next is are rivalry foe in football? To me Georgia, but there are others Tennessee, Florida, Mizzu. Can Kentucky creep in? How about North Carolina or any others come to mind?
