  1. Now that the Gamecocks are in the process looking for a new offensive coordinator. What would you like to see the Gamecocks new offensive coordinator feature, which scheme? True spread, heavy pass RPO, balanced approach 1-back, run dominant
  2. POLL OF THE WEEK: Season is in the books with 4-8 record Where does the program stand after 4 years under coach Muschamp? Hiring a new offensive Coordinator fix the Offensive woes? Can Muschamp right the ship? Is it time to part ways and look for a new head coach? Question abound that need answering.
  3. WHOO-HOO!!!! DISCUSSION GAMEDAY THREAD: USC VS Clemson Game-Time "12:00 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. Clemson ------------------------------------------------ WHAT TIME DO THE GAMECOCKS AND TIGERS PLAY TODAY? Who: Clemson (11-0) at South Carolina (4-7) When: Noon Saturday Where: Williams-Brice Stadium (80,250) TV: ESPN (Dave Pasch, play-by-play; Greg McElroy, analysis; Tom Luginbill, sideline) South Carolina Radio: 107.5 FM (Todd Ellis, play-by-play; Tommy Suggs, analysis; Jamar Nesbit, sideline) ... See all the radio affiliates around the state here. Clemson Radio: 1400 AM in Columbia, 93.3 in Greenville (Don Munson, C.J. Spiller, Tim Bourret, Reggie Merriweather) ... See all the radio affiliates around the state here. Satellite radio: Sirius 136/XM 193 Stream: WatchESPN Line: Clemson by 27 Series history: Clemson lead to the all-time series 70-42-4. The Tigers won the past five, which came after South Carolina had won the previous five. Weather: Mostly sunny. Temperature 60 degrees at kickoff, 62 at game’s end. WHAT’S AT STAKE If the Tigers win here, they remain in full control of their destiny in the College Football Playoff race. A loss and they are suddenly facing a situation where they could get left out, depending on how things settle, because of a softer schedule. A win for South Carolina wouldn’t even mean a bowl, but it would put an end to the losing streak in the series and end a difficult season on a high note. Will Muschamp already has one top-5 win this year, and another would leave the season as simply befuddling. Style points are something coaches abhor, but in the end they probably matter for both. Any extra damage the Tigers inflict would only help their postseason resume. The closer the Gamecocks stay would keep extra heat off them. SOUTH CAROLINA PLAYERS TO WATCH 1. Quarterback Ryan Hilinski has already faced Alabama and Georgia and managed to perform well against both. He’ll get another challenge against a top-5 team with another ferocious defense. For the season, he’s thrown for 2,252 yards, 11 scores and only four interceptions. 2. Running back Tavien Feaster is going to be a focus both because he’s facing off against his old team and coming back from an injury. Despite missing a couple games, he’s the team’s top rusher with 625 yards and five scores on 112 carries. 3. Defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw has the ability to be a game-wrecker, and the Gamecocks will need that in this one. He was vital in the UGA upset. For the year, he has 31 tackles, six sacks, six tackles for loss and a couple pass breakups. CLEMSON PLAYERS TO WATCH 1. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence has been playing the best football of his career since the end of the first quarter against Louisville, which is a scary thought for opponents. Since throwing two interceptions in the first 15 minutes against the Cardinals on Oct. 19, Lawrence has 16 touchdowns and no interceptions. He is the first QB in Clemson history with at least three touchdowns in six consecutive games. 2. Running back Travis Etienne wasn’t named a finalist for the Doak Walker Award presented to the nation’s best back, a decision that was surprising considering the season Etienne is having. The junior has 1,335 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns on the season. He leads the nation in yards per carry by 1.36 yards per attempt and has only four carries in the fourth quarter this season as most of Clemson’s victories have been blowouts. 3. The one Clemson player who is a finalist for a national award is linebacker Isaiah Simmons, who was named one of three finalists for the Chuck Bednarik Award, which is presented to the top defensive player in the country. The junior has 74 tackles and leads the Tigers with 12 tackles for loss and six sacks. He also has 12 quarterback pressures and an interception.
  4. Gamecock injury report from Mushamp, the latest on Bryan Edwards’ status & final injury report before facing Clemson Nov. 26, 2019, | GCF Staff Report The Gamecocks do expect to have most of their injured players back come Saturday when they face off against Clemson at Williams-Brice Saturday, and it could have one player who was doubtful.

  6. GCF DISCUSSION WEEK 12: Talking Gamecocks vs. Tigers Saturday Kick - Off "High Noon" Well here we are last game of the season and its big rivalry weekend vs. the hated Clemson Tigers. 2019 season has been very disappointing. One bright spot though for Gamecock fans came with the Gamecocks beat No 3 Georgia in Athens. Importance here is that the Clemson Game could be life or death for Muschamp head coaching career, here or anywhere else for that matter. A win most surly gives Muschamp another year at the helm. But realistically can the Gamecocks possibly pull off perhaps one of the biggest wins ever over Clemson in this series? Most say no hope here among fans and others. Good news here neither will be playing Saturday night. Question two what will it take to accomplish the upset? What do you want to see vs. Clemson on Nov. 30?
  7. GAMECOCKFANATICS PLAYERS OF THE GAME: South Carolina vs Texas A&M Final: Texas A&M Aggies (7-3, 4-2) 30 - South Carolina Gamecocks (4-7, 3-5) 6 South Carolina concludes its SEC schedule on the road in College Station, TX by falling to the SEC-West Texas A&M Aggies 30-6. The loss drops the Gamecocks to 3-5 in conference, and 4-7 overall on the season. The Gamecocks return home to Williams-Brice to close out the season with its in-state rivalry game with Clemson next Saturday. The players of the game for this week, beginning with the Gamecocks’ picks: OFFENSE PK Parker White: with the offense struggling so badly to generate any yards or points, and the fact that special team’s skill players hardly ever get a chance to stand in the spot light, I choose Parker. White was 2 for 2 tonight, converting a 37-yarder and a 39-yarder for the Gamecock’s only points. Honorable Mention: TE Kyle Markway: Markway was the Gamecock’s primary receiving source with the absence of Bryan Edwards for the game, with 5 receptions in 9 targets for 57 yards. DEFENSE S Jammie Robinson: Robinson led the Gamecock defense with 15 total tackles, 12 of them solo tackles. Honorable mention: DE J.J. Enagbare: Enagbare was often in the Aggie backfield all game. He only recorded 2 total tackles, but 1.5 of them were tackles for loss, and 1.5 QB sacks as well. For Texas A&M OFFENSE QB Kellen Mond: Mond was 20-33 for 221 yards passing with 1 touchdown and 0 interceptions, and also added 47 rushing yards in 10 attempts with a rushing touchdown. Honorable Mention: RB Isaiah Spiller: Spiller rushed 24 times for 129 yards. DEFENSE LB Buddy Johnson: Johnson led the Aggies with 6 total tackles, 5 solo tackles, and a forced fumble. Honorable Mention: LB Anthony Hines: Hines tied Johnson with 6 total tackles – 3 solo – and also led the Aggies with 2.5 tackles for loss.
  8. Wow it is here, down to the last game in a very disappointing season for the Gamecocks which now stand at 4-7 with the biggest game of the season next in arch rival Clemson. Question now is can the Gamecocks beat Clemson and savage the season that for all purposes most just would like to forget at this point. Been a long time since a Gamecock victory over Clemson in recent history. Question abound about the head man and staff and possible changes coming in at season end. But for now let's get ready to play Clemson in 2 weeks.
  9. Gamecocks Wrap Up SEC Slate in College Station Saturday South Carolina vs. Texas A&M WHOO-HOO!!!! DISCUSSION GAMEDAY THREAD: USC VS Texas A&M 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.) WHAT TIME DO THE GAMECOCKS PLAY TODAY? Who: South Carolina (4-6, 3-4 SEC) at Texas A&M (6-3, 3-2) When: 7:30 p.m. Saturday Where: Kyle Field (110,633) 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 133/XM 381 Stream: WatchESPN Line: Texas A&M by 10 Series history: South Carolina trails the all-time series 5-0. The Gamecocks lost the first meeting in a blowout on the SEC Network’s first game and have played within one score three of the the past four years. Weather: Partly cloudy and chilly. Slightly windy. Temperature 51 degrees at kickoff, 45 at game’s end. WHAT’S AT STAKE If South Carolina loses this, the team is guaranteed to miss the postseason for the third time since 2004. A win would at least make the Clemson game a one-shot deal for a bowl. With the Gamecocks not expected to win, a victory would give a boost to the mood around Will Muschamp. He’s a loss away from a losing season in his fourth year, and breaking the streak against the Aggies couldn’t hurt. The Aggies needs this one rather badly as their own season has been defined by a brutal schedule. Win this one, and A&M clinches being above .500 before facing Georgia and LSU on the road to close things out. SOUTH CAROLINA PLAYERS TO WATCH 1. Quarterback Ryan Hilinski was again asked to throw more than 50 passes in a game, the third time this season and more than any QB in program history. He’ll have to contend with a good Aggies pass defense. For the year, he has 2,077 yards, 11 touchdowns and four interceptions. 2. Wide receiver Bryan Edwards is quickly becoming one of the lone playmakers standing for the Gamecocks. He’s dealing with a knee njury and coming to the end of a decorated career. He has 71 catches with 816 yards and six touchdowns. 3. Linebacker Ernest Jones will have to hold up against an offense that likes to get downhill and run a power game often. That’s to say nothing of what Kellen Mond adds in the run game. In his first year starting, Jones has 75 tackles, 4 1/2 tackles for loss, two interceptions and five pass break-ups. TEXAS A&M PLAYERS TO WATCH 1. Quarterback Kellen Mond had a fun time last season against teams from South Carolina. His 430-yard, three touchdown performance in a Clemson loss was followed by 353 more yards and a score in a win against the Gamecocks. Though he wasn’t nearly as prolific this year against the Tigers — see 236 yards and an interception in a 24-10 loss in September — Mond is heating up heading into the Gamecock matchup. Averages from the junior’s last four games: 24 of 37, 271 yards, 2 TDs. 2. Running back Isaiah Spiller took SEC Freshman of the Week honors after rushing for 217 yards and three touchdowns in the Aggies’ last game, a win over UTSA. In both yards and scores, he set or matched school records by a true freshman. Spiller was a four-star prospect out of Spring, Texas. 3. The Aggies have three players with at least five tackles for loss, led by linebacker Buddy Johnson’s eight. Johnson returned a fumble 62 yards for a touchdown to help a 24-17 win over Ole Miss on Oct. 19.
  10. This'll be pretty much a commitment watch thread Every time there is a SpursUp Gamecocks get a commit #spursup hashtag on Twitter https://twitter.com/hashtag/spursup
  11. POLL OF THE WEEK: What awaits the Gamecocks next two games 4-7 let me say it one more time 4-7. 5th year in with this staff and this is the best they can do. Will just making changes in the staff along maybe fix the issues? Tendencies here say no. Just look at Booms stay at Florida. One very good year and then all down hill to his firing. Are we seeing the same result here? To me yes. That said, question on everybody's mind can this coach and his staff win one or the 2 games remaining on the Schedule?
  12. WEEK 11 DICSSUION THREAD: USC VS Texas A&M Saturday Kick - Off "7: 30 pm" With only two games remaining in the season the Gamecocks are now resting at 4-6. With this said' it is very unlikely that the Gamecocks will win the last two to become bowl eligible. Gamecocks home for the holidays. Really only thing in play here is can the Gamecocks pull off the upset by beating A&M at there home? A team the Gamecocks have failed to beat since A&M joined the SEC. Likely not this year. Regardless what do you want to see out of the Gamecocks this week that will give you hope heading into the final game of the season to face off with arch rival Clemson?
  13. WHOO-HOO!!!! DISCUSSION GAMEDAY THREAD: USC VS App. St. Saturday Game-Time "7:00 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. App. State ------------------------------------ WHAT TIME DO THE GAMECOCKS PLAY TODAY? Who: Appalachian State (7-1) at South Carolina (4-5) When: 7 p.m. Saturday Where: Williams-Brice Stadium (80,250) TV: ESPN2 (Anish Shroff, play-by-play; John Congemi, analysis; Kris Budden, 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 98/XM 192 Stream: Watch ESPN Line: South Carolina by 6 SENIOR SALUTE: The Gamecocks will recognize their 2019 senior class prior to Saturday's kick. The 26 players expected to take part in Senior Day festivities include Michael Almond, Jake Bentley, T.J. Brunson, Joseph Charlton, Chavis Dawkins, Mon Denson, Rico Dowdle, Bryan Edwards, Daniel Fennell, Tavien Feaster, Jaylan Foster, Bailey Hart, Sadarius Hutcherson, J.T. Ibe, Javon Kinlaw, Caleb Kinlaw, Kyle Markway, Matt Oliveira, Jazuun Outlaw, Kiel Pollard, Kobe Smith, Donell Stanley, Will Tommie, A.J. Turner, Eldridge Thompson and D.J. Wonnum. Series history: CAROLINA VS. APP STATE: This is the 10th gridiron match between South Carolina and Appalachian State, but the first time the two schools have met as FBS members. The Gamecocks and Mountaineers played nine times between 1972 and 1988 when App State was in the FCS or Division I-AA, with Carolina winning eight of those nine contests, which were all played in Columbia. South Carolina leads the all-time series 8-1. THE LAST TIME THEY MET: South Carolina rolled to a 35-9 win over App State on Oct. 1, 1988 at Williams-Brice Stadium in their last meeting. The seventh-ranked Gamecocks limited ASU, the second-ranked team in Division I-AA to 33 yards rushing on 35 carries and forced six turnovers, including a 37-yard interception return for a touchdown by Dale Campbell. The offense took advantage of the positive field position. Harold Green and Mike Dingle both scored twice from inside five yards, while Todd Ellis completed 19-of-34 passes for 205 yards. Carolina, under head coach Joe Morrison, finished the '88 season with an 8-4 mark, while App State went 6-4-1 under Sparky Woods. Weather: Clear and chilly. Calm wind. Temperature 44 degrees at kickoff, 38 at game’s end. South Carolina needs this one to at least keep its slim bowl hopes alive. If the Gamecocks can hold off the feisty Mountaineers, they would need to upset either against Clemson or Texas A&M to reach six wins. That fifth win is also important from an optics standpoint. Going 5-7 flat out looks better than 4-8. Considering the schedule and QB situation, that will matter when the topic of Will Muschamp’s job is inevitably discussed. App State was rolling before a rivalry upset to Georgia Southern. If the Mountaineers win Saturday, it would be another win against a Power 5 team (with UNC) and put them in line for 11 or 12 wins. SOUTH CAROLINA PLAYERS TO WATCH Quarterback Ryan Hilinski looked good against Vanderbilt, calmly leading the offense and getting the ball out quickly. He’ll be tasked with facing a versatile defense. He has 1,752 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions this season. Running back Rico Dowdle is coming back from a knee injury and suddenly might have to carry a bigger load with Tavien Feaster dealing with a groin strain. Dowdle has been the No. 1 back much of the season and has 457 yards and four scores in seven games. Linebacker Ernest Jones will man the middle against an offense that has a range of play-makers, but perhaps not a bell-cow receiver or tailback. They will have to corrall a mobile and efficient quarterback in Zac Thomas. In his first year starting, Jones has 55 tackles, one interceptions and five pass break-ups. APPALACHIAN STATE PLAYERS TO WATCH The Georgia Southern loss ended a 17-game win streak for App State with Zac Thomas at quarterback. The junior has thrown for 14 touchdowns against three interceptions this season. He’s also third on the team in rushing with 303 yards and four scores. App State has nine South Carolina natives on its roster, including receiver Malik Williams. The Chester product, who wasn’t offered by the Gamecocks, is second on the team with 37 catches for 438 yards and two touchdowns. App State’s win over UNC included defensive end Demetrius Taylor becoming the first FBS player in the 2000s to record 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, a fumble return for a TD and an interception in the same game. Taylor is second in the Sun Belt in sacks and tackles for loss.

  15. Hayden Hurst throws support behind Will Muschamp, writes coach ‘turned my life around’ Will Muschamp joined the Gamecocks at a rather crucial juncture for tight end Hayden Hurst. At the moment, the coach is somewhat embattled, needing a win against a tough mid major opponent and then one upset in two tries just to reach a bowl in his fourth season. But Hurst, now with the Baltimore Ravens in the NFL, has his coach’s back. In his first year on campus, Hurst was playing wide receiver as a former minor-league baseball pitcher in his early 20s. He only caught eight passes for 106 yards, only a few years after the yips ended his career on the diamond, which led to a battle with anxiety and depression.
  16. South Carolina, App State linebackers trade barbs Nov. 08, 2019 South Carolina Gamecocks linebacker Ernest Jones has already put his counterpart on notice. Appalachian State sophomore linebacker Trey Cobb better have his head on a swivel, because South Carolina’s running backs are going to “run him over” when the two teams meet on Saturday night at Williams-Brice Stadium. The warning was all in good fun. “It’s definitely friendly trash talk and I’m telling him all type of things that the running backs are going to do to him and he’s doing the same,” Jones said. “It’s going to be fun. It’s exciting.” (VIEW ARTICLE) FREE 247SPORTS
  17. Game 10 DISCUSSION THREAD: USC VS App. St. Saturday Kick/Off - "7: 00 pm ET." Nov. 04, 2019 Next step to bowl edibility will be facing the Gamecocks Saturday night. With Temperatures dipping in to the upper 20's will be a cold affair. Win here would even the Gamecocks to 5-5 and only needing one more win to be eligible for a bowl. Sounds easy maybe, but not. Gamecocks will be facing a team a week ago that was ranked in the top 25, but App. St. stub it's toe and will becoming into the Cock-Pit 7-1 instead of 8-0. If the Gamecocks do win the changes are still slim to win 6 games with two left on the schedule. One being Texas A&M on the road and then having to face off with perhaps the best teams in the nation the Clemson Tiger, here in Columbia to close out the regular season. Question now what will it take to beat a talented App. St. too evening up the record for the next step of the journey to be bowl eligible?
  18. Anyone know how to contact Spurticus/Cover Two other CockyTalkers tell them we would love to have them here. Feather has said he would really like Spurticus/Cover Two here.
  19. For detailed accounts & discussion with your fellow Gamecocks (PS SEND ALL WHOO-HOO!!!! To cocky0 for his records by PM.) Gamecocks vs. Vanderbilt ------------------------------------ Carolina and Vandy Set to Battle Under the Lights WHAT TIME DO THE GAMECOCKS PLAY TODAY? Who: Vanderbilt (2-5, 1-3) at South Carolina (3-5, 2-4 SEC) When: 7:30 p.m. Saturday Where: Williams-Brice Stadium (80,250) 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. Stream: WatchESPN Line: South Carolina by 15 Series history: South Carolina leads the all-time series 24-4. The Gamecocks have won 10 in a row in the series, and have only lost twice to the Commodores since 1999. Weather: Mostly clear. Calm wind. Temperature 55 degrees at kickoff, 50 at game’s end. Things are bad after the loss to Tennessee, with the idea of a bowl now only a faint glimmer. Lose to this troubled outfit and it’s much worse for the Gamecocks. If the Gamecocks were to lose here, the specter of a coaching change can go from idle chatter to something far more vivid. Defeat makes 3-9 suddenly very possible, and that’s the kind of thing that can swing a program to make a change. After a loss to UNLV, Vandy coach Derek Mason is likely on the way out. A win in Columbia might not save him, but it could help. SOUTH CAROLINA PLAYERS TO WATCH 1. Quarterback Ryan Hilinski continues his season fraught with ups and downs, highs and lows. He threw more than 50 passes and gained more than 300 yards for the second time this season. 2. Running back Tavien Feaster was the centerpiece of a ground game that had trouble getting moving in Knoxville. He had only 80 yards in that game, and has 572 yards and five scores on the season. 3. Linebacker T.J. Brunson will have a hand in trying to slow Ke’Shawn Vaughn, who put up more than 1,200 yards last season. USC held him to only 30 yards in 2018. Brunson has 60 tackles and three pass break-ups this season. VANDERBILT PLAYERS TO WATCH 1. Vanderbilt has lacked offensive explosion all season, but the Commodores still pose a threat on the ground with Vaughn. The senior from Nashville entered last week second in the SEC with just over 100 rushing yards a game. An Illinois transfer, Vaughn scored one of Vandy’s two touchdowns against South Carolina last season. 2. After seeing Kyle Shurmur each of the past three seasons, Vanderbilt is in a new era under center. Four different Commodores have thrown passes this year, but it was Mo Hasan who excelled with his last chance. The redshirt junior completed seven of 11 passes for 120 yards and a touchdown in the Missouri win, before leaving in the third quarter with a head injury. If healthy, Hasan will start against the Gamecocks. If not, expect Riley Neal. 3. Perhaps the most notable performance in the Missouri win — Vandy’s first over a ranked opponent since 2016 — went to Harrison Smith. The punter was named SEC Special Teams Player of the Week having three of his six attempts downed inside the Mizzou 20-yard line. He’s averging over 44 yards a punt this season.
  20. POLL OF THE WEEK: Appalachian State Mountaineers up next to face the Gamecocks at WB Gamecocks after defeating Vanderbilt stand at 4-5, beat App. St. even ups to 5-5 and one win away from Bowl eligibility. But first Gamecocks will have to face a challenge with a very tough appoint that will not be a pushover. Gamecocks mounting injuries could make this game a battle to the end. Question now can the Gamecocks win and even up there record?
  21. Hold on to a 2nd-half lead!! Three blown leads in the 2nd half against North Carolina, Florida and Tennessee tell the story of this season, and Muschamp has said turnovers play a vital role in that area. Muschamp noted that the Gamecocks have had 10 turnovers against Power 5 opponents this year, and 7 have been in the 2nd half. There have also been 6 possessions end on downs as the team couldn’t convert on 4th down. “We’ve been ineffective consistently throwing the football,” Muschamp said, pointing to protection, route running, accuracy with the football and field position. “It’s not one thing, it’s multiple things. We’re trying to correct, we’re trying to get it right. Thought we got off on the right start on the first play of the game last week, and felt like there were some things that we did do positive as far as those things are concerned. I’d point to some youth in some key areas. Just call it like it is. I mean, it’s hard what I’m asking some of these guys to do. … You look at the last 2nd half and the 3rd quarter against Tennessee, 3 possessions we self-inflict, you know, 5-yard penalties, a delay of game, and 2 false starts. And right now when you’re not creating explosive plays, they’re hard to overcome those.”
  22. Well it is almost here looking down the barrel at a 5-7 season. Can the Gamecocks ink out 6 wins? Vanderbilt should be one but you never know and App. St. not going to be a push over. Very talented team g=coming to Columbia in a few weeks, That leave Texas A&M and one of the nations best in Clemson. Will be a tall order to reach the magic number require to go bowling. But anyhow time to bring are addition to the game at hand Vanderbilt. What would you like to see out of the Gamecocks this weekend on defense, offense and coaching? Scouting South Carolina’s next opponent: Vanderbilt Commodores WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR South Carolina’s bowl hopes took a big hit with the Tennessee loss. Mapping out a road to six wins at the beginning of the season — and especially after the unexpected loss to North Carolina in the opener — usually included success in Knoxville. Instead, the Gamecocks have one game to give the rest of the way if they want to still be playing in December. Four games remain on the regular season schedule. Two are against ranked teams (No. 4 Clemson, No. 21 Appalachian State), one is on the road (Texas A&M) and then there’s Vandy. The Commodores are the weakest remaining foe, but they’re also coming off a bye and a win over then-ranked Missouri. Gamecocks offense has fizzled the last two weeks at the most inopportune times. A garbage time touchdown saved the Gamecocks from being shut out in the fourth quarter of the 38-27 loss to Florida on Oct. 19. Seven days later, Carolina went scoreless in the second half of a 20-point Tennessee loss. Some good news for Ryan Hilinski and company? Vanderbilt enters this game last in the SEC in scoring defense, allowing close to 34 points a game. Vanderbilt is statistically the least explosive offense in the SEC. The Commodores are averaging a league-worst 11 plays a game that go for at least 10 yards. But perhaps the Commodores are licking their chops after watching a previously vertically-challenged Tennessee team torch the South Carolina secondary for 351 passing yards. Can the Gamecock unit that harassed Georgia’s Jake Fromm just three weeks ago return against Vandy? VANDERBILT PLAYERS TO WATCH Vanderbilt has lacked offensive explosion all season, but the Commodores still pose a threat on the ground with Ke’Shawn Vaughn. The senior from Nashville entered last week second in the SEC with just over 100 rushing yards a game. An Illinois transfer, Vaughn scored one of Vandy’s two touchdowns against South Carolina last season. After seeing Kyle Shurmur each of the past three seasons, Vanderbilt is in a new era under center. Four different Commodores have thrown passes this year, but it was Mo Hasan who excelled with his last chance.
