  2. JUNE 14, 2019, | by CHRIS THESPURSUPSHOW.COM Q&A With 2020 Wide Receiver Commit Michael Wyman Chris sits down with Gamecocks 4 star wide receiver commit Michael Wyman in the first of a weekly Q&A series. Q: Talk about the recruiting process. What have been the best and worst parts for you specifically? MW: “The recruiting process has been a blessing. I am beyond grateful for the opportunities that God has put in place for me and overwhelmed with great supporters.” Q: Coming out of the state of North Carolina, how familiar were you with South Carolina football coming up? MW: “My interest has for the most part been with the SEC division of football.” Q: What went into your decision of committing to South Carolina? MW: “The academic and football opportunities South Carolina offers played a major role in my decision to commit to SC.” Q: You’re a very active guy on social media and promote a lot of positive messages about USC. Do you feel like that’s something that is important to you, being an ambassador for Carolina on social media? MW: “I feel it important for other recruits and their families to see the great opportunities SC has to offer. I am grateful to receive the blessings and support so I show my gratitude through social media.” Q: Talk about your relationship with the coaching staff. What did they say their plans are for you once you step on campus? MW: “My mom, family and myself have developed a great relationship with the coaches and staff. I am appreciative of the welcoming from the supporters, fans, coaches and staff have shown me and my family” Q: Obviously, the Gamecocks are loaded at the QB position for the forseeable future. What’s your relationship like with Jake Bentley, Dakereon Joyner, Ryan Hilinski, Luke Doty, etc. and how excited are you to have one of those guys throwing you the ball? MW: “SC has great QB’s. I am excited to be apart of their program.” Q: What would you say is your biggest strength as a wide receiver? MW: “My biggest strength as a wide receiver is my height, weight, routes, separation, agility, strength, body control, speed, field vision, hand & eye coordination.” Q: On the contrary, what would you say is the biggest thing you’re looking to improve on when you make the jump to the college level? MW: “I am excited to learn and advance with the team, coaches and staff.” Q: What are you looking forward to most about being a Gamecock? MW: “I am looking forward to getting a higher education, the excitement of the fans, bonding with the team and staff.”
  3. 2019 Opponent Preview: This Is The Year The Kentucky Streak Ends…Right? June 12, 2019, | by CHRIS from the SPURSUPSHOW.COM. Make sure to listen to his podcast. Lot of Gamecock knowledge and fun to listen to for all Gamecock fans. OPPONENT: Kentucky Wildcats WHEN: Saturday, September 28th WHERE: Williams-Brice Stadium (Columbia, SC) ALL-TIME SERIES RECORD: South Carolina leads 17-12-1 LAST MEETING: Kentucky beat the Gamecocks 24-10 in Lexington 2018 RECORD: 10-3 (5-3) Head Coach… Mark Stoops Stoops returns for his seventh season at Kentucky added leading the Wildcats to a breakout season in 2018. He did arguably the best job amongst SEC Coaches a year ago, leading UK to a 10-3 (5-3) overall record. A man who has faced a lot of scrutiny while in Lexington, Stoops rewarded Wildcats fans for their patience last season and looks to have as much job security as ever heading into 2019. Returning Starters… OFFENSE (4) WR Lynn Bowden Jr. (Jr.) LG Logan Stenberg (Sr.) C Drake Jackson (Jr.) QB Terry Wilson (Jr.) DEFENSE (4) DE Calvin Taylor Jr. (Sr.) NG Quinton Bohanna (Jr.) MLB Kash Daniel (Sr.) SLB Jamar Watson (Jr.) How did they fare in 2018? 2018 provided one of the best seasons Kentucky fans have seen in quite some time on the gridiron. UK shocked the SEC East out of the gate, beating the Florida Gators for the first time since 1986. The Wildcats won 10 games for the first time in 41 years, shocking the CFB world. Benny Snell left his place in UK history, leaving Lexington as the Cats all time leading rusher. The defense was no slouch either, led by NFL first rounder Josh Allen and a plethora of experience on that side of the ball. Best Returning Player… WR Lynn Bowden Jr. Bowden returns as the Cats most dynamic playmaker and a guy QB Terry Wilson will rely on heavily this season. The junior was solid in 2018, leading UK in receptions (67), receiving yards (745) and touchdowns (5). With questions at running back after Benny Snell’s departure, the pressure will fall squarely on the shoulders of Bowden to be the playmaker the Wildcats offense will so desperately need. Overall Outlook… It couldn’t happen again…right? Simply put, Kentucky’s current five game winning streak over South Carolina is one of the most maddening stats in all of college football. What’s arguably more maddening is how those games have gone. Kentucky has whipped the Gamecocks on the line of scrimmage the past five years and a few of the contests haven’t been particularly close. After a 10 win season, it feels the Cats almost have to take a step back in 2019. Losses of RB Benny Snell, LB Josh Allen and others will loom large and UK will float around the .500 mark all season long. Still, the question remains: is this the year South Carolina finally ends the dreaded streak and gets the Wildcat sized monkey off their back? Here’s the bottom line: you can’t convince anyone the program is headed in the right direction with another loss to UK. While it’s not the “biggest” game of 2019, it may be the most important for USC. 2019 SEASON PROJECTION: 5-7 (2-6)

  6. Another great write up by CHRIS PHILLIPS from THE SPURS UP SHOW. Really enjoy Chris's podcast!! 2019 Opponent Preview: Can The Gamecocks Do The Unthinkable And Shock The Crimson Tide Yet Again? OPPONENT: Alabama Crimson Tide WHEN: Saturday, September 14th WHERE: Williams Brice Stadium (Columbia, SC) ALL-TIME SERIES RECORD: Alabama leads 10-4 LAST MEETING: South Carolina beat Alabama 35-21 on October 9th, 2010. 2018 RECORD: 14-1 (8-0) Head Coach… Nick Saban One of the best coaches in college football history, Nick Saban returns for his 13th year at the helm of Alabama football. Saban’s Crimson Tide lost a game by more than 14 points for the first time ever last season in the National Title game against Clemson. Still, Alabama remains arguably the team to beat heading into 2019, as Nick Saban looks for his sixth national championship as the head coach in Tuscaloosa. Returning Starters… OFFENSE (6) QB Tua Tagovailoa (Jr.) RT Jedrick Willis Jr. (Jr.) LT Alex Leatherwood (Jr.) WR DeVonta Smith (Jr.) WR Henry Ruggs III (Jr.) WR Jerry Jeudy (Jr.) DEFENSE (7) DE Raekwon Davis (Sr.) OLB Anfernee Jennings (Sr.) ILB Dylan Moses (Jr.) CB Trevon Diggs (Sr.) CB Patrick Surtain III (So.) S Xavier McKinney (Jr.) How did they fare in 2018? Was 2018 a successful year for Alabama? For a program that is judged on championships, last year can be seen as a disappointment. The Crimson Tide cruised through the regular season, on the way to their 7th national title game appearance since 2009. However, the season was ended unlike any before in recent memory for Alabama. Clemson smacked the Crimson Tide by a final score of 44-16, opening up the door for questions in regards to Bama’s mortality. Best Returning Player… QB Tua Tagovailoa The Crimson Tide machine begins and ends with one of the best quarterbacks in the country under center. Tagovailoa set the CFB world on fire a year ago, throwing for nearly 4,000 yards and 43 total TD. While there are playmakers all over the field, the Crimson Tide’s national title hopes go down the tube without #13 under center. Overall Outlook… First off, who can forget that magical October afternoon in 2010: South Carolina remains the last team from the SEC East to defeat the Crimson Tide, winning 35-21 nine years ago in Williams-Brice Stadium. Alabama comes into this season looking to erase the horrid memories of a blowout loss to Clemson in the national title and get back to their eighth national championship game since 2009. Expect the Gamecocks to pull out all the 2010 magic they can, from wearing the same uniforms to hype videos to even having Stephen Garcia lead the “GAME-COCKS” chant to start the game. Still, it will be a tall task to ask South Carolina to pull the upset over an Alabama team who will no doubt be on a mission this fall. 2019 SEASON PROJECTION: 13-0 (8-0)

  10. MAY 31, 2019, by CHRIS PHILLIPS | THE SPURS UP SHOW 2019 Opponent Preview: Bucs Travel To Columbia For First Ever Meeting With USC OPPONENT: Charleston Southern Buccaneers WHEN: Saturday, September 7ty WHERE: Williams Brice Stadium (Columbia, SC) ALL-TIME SERIES RECORD: First all time meeting LAST MEETING: N/A 2018 RECORD: 5-6 (3-2) Head Coach… Autry Denson became just the Bucs fifth head coach in program history when he was hired over the off-season. Denson has a solid track record, spending time at Bethune-Cookman, Miami (OH), South Florida and Notre Dame. Denson spent the last four seasons as the Fighting Irish running backs coach, helping ND nearly rush for 2,700 yards a season ago. He was a fantastic player for the Irish as well, leaving South Bend ranking third all time in rushing yards and second in rushing TDs. How did they fare in 2018? Charleston Southern struggled a year ago, finishing with a 5-6 overall record and 3-2 overall in conference play. The Bucs played one Power Five team a season ago in the Florida Gators, who dismantled CSU on their way to a 53-6 win. Best Returning Player… LB JD Soseebee, RS-Senior Soseebee finished fifth in the Big South in tackles per game and had four games where he accumulated at least 10 tackles for the Bucs. He led an impressive Bucs defense which placed six overall players on the Big South All-Conference teams. He finished the 2018 season with 64 tackles, 6 TFL and 0.5 sacks. Soseebee appears to be the leader of Charleston Southern’s defense and will be their primary threat on defense in 2019. Overall Outlook… Autry Denson takes over the reigns in Charleston looking to inject new life into the Charleston Southern football program. While no opponent should be taken lightly, this should be a warm up game of sorts for the Gamecocks, who face Alabama the following week. Still, the first match-up in the overall series will be great for football fans within the state and should become a more annual non-conference game for both teams. 2019 SEASON PROJECTION: 6-6

  20. Muschamp hopes Pro Day, NFL Draft helps with recruiting March 21, 2019 S&F Will Muschamp was at Pro Timing Day at the Jerri and Steve Spurrier Practice Facility Thursday, watching his former players work out and chatting with a couple of former Gamecocks now in the NFL. To Muschamp, the workouts for 52 NFL coaches and scouts from all 32 teams is part of his program’s recruiting process. He is hoping future recruits see former Gamecocks stars like Deebo Samuel, Zack Bailey and Bryson Allen-Williams getting an opportunity to play at the next level. “This is always everyone’s dream,” he said. “Education is obviously number one, but having an opportunity to continue to play is really important and having the development we have here, a young man can benefit from being a part of that.” South Carolina has had just one player drafted in Muschamp’s first three years — tight end Hayden Hurst was taken in the first round by the Baltimore Ravens last year — but linebacker Skai Moore and defensive tackle Taylor Stallworth both signed free agent contracts last year and played this past season. Stallworth was at Pro Day Thursday, chatting with and supporting his former teammates, and got a hug from Muschamp as the Gamecocks coach addressed the media. Samuel is expected to be selected in the first two rounds on April 25, while Bailey is considered a strong offensive line prospect. Other players like Allen-Williams, offensive lineman Dennis Daley and defensive back Rashad Fenton are hoping to be late-round picks. Muschamp hopes getting those players into the NFL will attract other highly touted players to his program. “Continuing to recruit at a high level is going to be important for us moving forward and we need to increase our draft numbers, bottom line,” he said. “We are recruiting kids who want to continue to play after college and they want to be able to see a track record. Our staff has a great track record, not necessarily here at South Carolina in our first three seasons, but I certainly hope that is going to change.” The Gamecocks had 13 players work out for pro scouts Thursday. The top attraction, of course, was Samuel, whose versatile all-purpose game is expected to play well in the NFL. Muschamp has heard from coaches and scouts who are impressed with Samuel not only on the field but off it. “Deebo is Deebo, he hasn’t changed a bit,” Muschamp said. “It’s been very impressive to hear the scouts and a lot of the coaches here today talk about him and how he has handled this process and how impressive he was in interviews. And that really goes for all of our players. It’s been great to hear a lot of very positive comments today about how they have handled this process.” Muschamp, a former NFL assistant under Nick Saban, allows NFL scouts to attend South Carolina practices and allowed several to hold meetings with his former players this week at the new Long Family Football Operations Center. He is asked often about his players, but it’s not their on-field performance and success they want to know about. “I always tell our guys, it’s their determination if he’s a good enough player for their organization,” he said. “They are not asking if he’s good enough, they are asking about his work ethic, what kind of person he is, how durable he is. Those are the questions that I get asked and we’re honest with every team, because we want them to respect us and our opinion, and that’s helped us with a lot of guys who have played for me because they know if I put my name on one he is going to be a good representative of their football organization.
  21. What surprised South Carolina’s Bryan McClendon about Ryan Hilinski? His bravery March 20, 2019 THE STATE With a new quarterback in four-star recruit Ryan Hilinski, South Carolina offensive coordinator Bryan McClendon had a sense of what he was getting. But in one area, the coach admitted you don’t know until you see it in practice. How brave his is. “When you’re standing in the pocket and kind of having to deal with all the stuff and you’re dealing with people around there, you just don’t know,” McClendon said. Before this spring, the coaches had seen Hilinski work in camp and on film, but not in that kind of full-team situation in the flesh. So how’d he do? “He hasn’t flinched,” McClendon said. “You go in there. They send stuff at him and he’s making the right checks and doing the right things.” The top-70 recruit nationally enrolled early, and was already trying to drink in the playbook before he arrived on campus. He played for a high school that regularly faced some of the best teams in the country, but all that gets put behind him once he arrived. He’s currently battling for South Carolina’s No. 2 job behind longtime starter Jake Bentley, along with Dakereon Joyner and Jay Urich. He’s not as mobile as either of those two, but with an accurate arm, he’s showed the staff a little something. “He’s looking pretty good,” McClendon said. “He’s grasping everything. He’s doing a good job of understanding what we’re trying to do every time he’s in there and does have good command of it.” As a high school senior, Hilinski threw for 2,746 yards, 29 scores and 10 interceptions as the team around him was ravaged by injuries. He’d thrown for more than 3,700 yards the season prior. In practice Monday, Joyner, Hilinski and Urich all rolled through during a short period when the second-team offense was on the field. That points to one of the challenges the staff has with three options for a backup spot. McClendon and his staff have to weigh and study the circumstances of every rep those QBs get. They’re playing with mixed lines, less quality receivers, blends of the second and third teams against second- and third-team defenses. So when asked if some kind of hierarchy is developing now, McClendon only pointed to the data that needs to be drilled into. “Right now, we have a lot to look at before we even consider a pecking order,” McClendon said.
  22. SEC Tournament Preview, Yardcocks Begin SEC Play + Braden Webb March 13, 2019 Chris goes solo this week to preview Gamecocks basketball, the upcoming SEC series with UGA and more.

  23. After big win in College Station, does South Carolina still have a realistic shot at the NIT? March 06, 2019 Let’s be honest, South Carolina was never expected to make the NCAA Tournament at the beginning of the year. The realistic expectations for them is that they would make the NIT. They can still make the NIT and their 71-54 win over Texas A&M last night increased their chance of making the NIT. The only thing saving the Gamecocks is their 10-7 SEC record, which can be improved with one last game against Georgia and the SEC Tournament. This was the type of game the fans wanted to see, especially with AJ Lawson still out. Chris Silva was the star of the game with 22 points and 17 rebounds. He also made four out his four three-pointers, which is very uncommon for him. The Gamecocks as a team made 56.5 percent of their three-pointers while the Aggies only made 21.7 percent of theirs. Hassani Gravett, who started in place of Lawson, put up 17 points and eight assists. He also made four out of his seven three-pointers. South Carolina will play Georgia on Saturday in their last regular season game, which will also be Senior Night for the Gamecocks. Right now South Carolina has the fourth seed in the SEC tournament, and a win over Georgia would secure that spot due to a head-to-head victory over Auburn, who is currently tied for fourth in the SEC.
