  3. Good morning fanatics!! I see soon COCKYTALK will be back and just wanted to say a few things. First, thank you Cockytalkers for joining GamecockFanatics. Now soon Cockytalk will be back and I know a lot of you will go back and I want to say thank you for making this your home while Cockytalk was down. For those who stay thank you and those members who choose to make both places home thank you. Chuck and his staff are a first class act.

  4. Look Back - A True Gamecock Moment Year 1984 Mike Hold laying the ball at the feet of William Perry after the Gamecocks beat Clemson for the first time in Death Valley. The Fridge had been boasting pre-game that he was going to be all over Hold but Hold was not sacked in the contest. At the time it was probably the pinnacle of SC football achievement. Different time then. I think a fan just happened to take this photo from the stands. Then had to have it enlarged and copies made into the 14 x 11 format so you'd know what you were looking at. Then sell one to every Gamecock in SC (plus you had to know somebody to even make a purchase).

  6. Elliott Fry signs three-year deal with NFL squad April 12, 2019 kicker Elliott Fry is getting his shot at the NFL — the Chicago Bears announced Friday that they have signed the one-time college walk-on to a three-year deal. Fry will have to compete for a starting role against the two other kickers the Bears have signed this offseason after rookie Cody Parkey missed a crucial 43-yard field goal in the first round of the playoffs. Fry left South Carolina as the program’s all-time points leader and recently spent time in the now-defunct Alliance for American Football, reuniting with his former coach Steve Spurrier on the Orlando Apollos. With the Apollos, Fry made all 14 of his field goal attempts, with a long of 44 yards. At USC, Fry made 66 of his 88 field goal attempts and was nearly across four years of extra points, making 161 of 162 attempts. After his senior season, he stayed another year at Carolina to finish his double major.

  13. They arrived in one of South Carolina’s darkest hours. What these seniors mean to USC November 17, 2018 From South Carolina football’s 2015 recruiting class, only four will walk Saturday. It speaks to attrition. It speaks to a few redshirts. It speaks to the bounces and the journey the Gamecocks football program has gone through in their time on campus. And perhaps it also speaks to what’s coming next. In Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturday night against Chattanooga, a total of 20 players will walk in senior day festivities. The makeup of the group is in itself rather remarkable, though perhaps not so much given all the program has been through. ▪ Four true seniors ▪ Six redshirt seniors ▪ Four junior college players ▪ One graduate transfer ▪ Two walk-ons who earned scholarships ▪ Three walk-ons “Looking back at it, it’s kind of crazy,” senior guard Zack Bailey said. “Just coming in and we had a bunch of guys. A lot of them transferred out or had issues going on at home for whatever reason. So looking at it now, just a small group, it’s kind of amazing that we’re here. “I love it and I love the close knit that we have and just how we’ve made this team progress to come from 3-9.” Bailey is one of those true seniors, along with Rashad Fenton, Blake Camper and Christian Pellage, who has not played in a game since 2015. Overall, nine scholarship players from that class remain. Bailey and Camper were both forced into action, getting starts in 2015. Fenton and Pellage each had roles as true freshmen. There was a special message for the team about that group of 20, as they head into the Chattanooga game. “It’s really just about our seniors and what they have done for this program,” quarterback Jake Bentley said. “They’ve been through a lot since they’ve been here. Really just battled and optimized what we want as a culture here. “Coach Muschamp challenged everyone, from the players, coaches, support staff to put all their effort in for the seniors to make this week special for them.” They’ll leave as part of a group that helped turn things around. Year 1 was the program’s lowest point since Lou Holtz’s 0-11 debut. They watched the Steve Spurrier era end with a thud, the short-lived Shawn Elliott tenure and the arrival of Muschamp, a coach with plenty of questions. They helped, each in their own way, South Carolina go from three wins to six, and then to nine. This year hasn’t been what was projected, but the team is on course for at least 7-5, a taste of stability for a program that seemed to have almost none when they arrived. They were important to what Muschamp was aiming to build, and he sees Saturday as a moment to share with them. “Appreciate them,” Muschamp said. “A small gesture of thank you for what they’ve done. It’s certainly not goodbye. “Mean an awful lot, especially in a coaching change, transition and helping build a foundation of the program moving forward.” In terms of moving forward, the small size of the group means USC should have a fair amount coming back. Of the 20 listed seniors, eight are currently starting. Two are hoping to come back next year after being injured, and another is deciding between a sixth season and a shot at the NFL. There’s the risk of a junior or two making the jump, perhaps Javon Kinlaw, Bryan Edwards or maybe Jake Bentley if he gets really good draft feedback. But most likely, this team will return a lot of pieces going into next season. Some of them will soon enough take on the mantle of seniors, leaders and stewards of the program, and in doing that, they’ll likely take a little something from the small group set to depart. “I hope to leave my legacy, what I’ve done here, I hope to leave that to the young guys,” Bailey said. “For them to build off of what I’ve done and help them progress, so that when I progress, they can step into that next role.” Seniors being recognized: Bryson Allen- Williams, Ben Asbury, Jacob August, Zack Bailey, Blake Camper, K.C. Crosby, Dennis Daley, Javion Duncan, Rashad Fenton, Danny Gordon, J.T. Ibe, Steven Montac, Keisean Nixon, Christian Pellage, Deebo Samuel, Michael Scarnecchia, Jason Senn, Donell Stanley, Eldridge Thompson and Malik Young.
  14. South Carolina bowl projections: More enthusiasm for a return trip to Florida November 05, 2018 With its victory this weekend over Ole Miss, South Carolina football solidified its chances of going to a bowl game, which already improved late last week with the announcement of a 12th game against Akron. Now at 5-3, the Gamecocks will almost certainly defeat Chattanooga on Nov. 17 to clinch bowl eligibility and will be favored to take down Akron for a seventh win. The question now becomes whether Will Muschamp’s squad can now knock off Florida on the road this upcoming Saturday to set itself up for another eight-win season and an even strong bowl bid. It seems as thought a plurality of bowl projectors from major national media outlets like South Carolina’s chances. Of nine predictions released by Monday, four have the Gamecocks visiting Florida for a second consecutive postseason, playing in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl against a variety of Big Ten opponents. Since the SEC re-partnered with the game in 2010, every conference representative has had at least seven wins, with five of those eight teams having eight wins or more. USC has played in the Gator Bowl four times in program history, losing every game. If Carolina doesn’t wind up in Jacksonville, two bowl projections each have it going to Memphis for the Liberty Bowl or just up the road to Charlotte for the Belk Bowl. Where the Gamecocks end up will also depend on how the rest of the SEC shakes out — currently, seven teams sit in front of South Carolina in the conference standings.

  15. Bryan Edwards catches one-handed TD bomb to extend Gamecocks’ lead over Ole Miss November 03, 2018 Bryan Edwards didn’t have a catch or a target for South Carolina football through the first quarter and a half against Ole Miss. That changed in a hurry. With under eight minutes to play before halftime and the Gamecocks winning 17-13, junior quarterback Jake Bentley stepped back in the pocket on first down at the 25-yard line and unleashed a bomb down the right sideline to the junior receiver. Edwards leaped and made the one-handed grab, then broke the tackle and waltzed into the end zone for a 75-yard score to make the game 24-13. The touchdown was Edwards’ sixth of the year, a new career best. The pass was the longest of Bentley’s career, topping another long ball he threw to Edwards last week against Tennessee.
  16. Fast start: Deebo Samuel takes opening kick for TD against Ole Miss Nov. 03, 2018 Slow starts had been a concern as of late for South Carolina football. That wasn’t an issue Saturday against Ole Miss, as star senior wide receiver Deebo Samuel returned the opening kickoff 90 yards for his fourth career return touchdown and first of the season to give the Gamecocks a 7-0 early lead. The Rebels seemed to attempt a short kick to specifically to avoid Samuel, but redshirt freshman offensive lineman Eric Douglas attempted to catch the ball and fumbled it. Samuel then scooped the ball up and sprinted nearly untouched the length of the field. Samuel last returned a kick for a touchdown on Sept. 9, 2017, against Missouri. He now has two more kicks returned for scores than any other player in program history, and is tied for the most in SEC history. In 2018, Samuel has had five receiving touchdowns, a career high. With Saturday’s touchdown return, his total touchdown total at USC now stands at 18.

  19. USC spends more in buildup of football under Muschamp. ‘It’s part of the evolution’ August 25, 2018 THE STATE Progress comes at a price. And it’s a hefty one in major college football. South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp has repeatedly referred to the school’s nearly completed $50 million football operations building as an “investment,” the kind of investment he and his bosses believe is mandatory to be competitive in the Southeastern Conference, but brick and mortar are only part of what the Gamecocks are pouring into their football program. “When you invest in your program, you get a return,” Muschamp said. Two years into his rebuilding of that program, the Gamecocks are doing just that. For the 2018 football season, South Carolina will employ 56 percent more people and spend 37 percent more money on employees devoted to the sport than it did in 2015, Steve Spurrier’s final season. “There’s been an evolution across college sports. Certainly football leads the charge in many ways,” Gamecocks athletics director Ray Tanner told The State. “I wouldn’t necessarily go back and say, ‘This was Coach Spurrier and now it’s Will Muschamp.’ I would say it’s part of the evolution.” In Spurrier’s final season, South Carolina was spending $8,247,677 on annual salaries in the football program. This season, the Gamecocks will spend $11,327,878. The team finished 3-9 in 2015 and 9-4 a year ago. “I knew we were behind in numbers (of staff members in the Spurrier era), but that doesn’t necessarily equate to wins,” Tanner said. “A couple years before that, we didn’t have as big a staff as some of the other schools, but we had won 33 games in three years, so more’s not always better.” It was clear, though, during Tanner’s interview with Muschamp that bringing the Gamecocks into line with most of their SEC brethren was going to take more people and more money. “Part of the conversation was, ‘What does your staff look like?’ ” Tanner said. Muschamp and his coaching staff account for most of the difference in spending. Muschamp makes $4.2 million annually, $200,000 more than Spurrier did in his final season, and his 10-person coaching staff earns a combined $5.05 million compared to the $2.96 million paid to Spurrier’s nine-man staff in 2015. (NCAA rules allowed a 10th on-field assistant to be hired beginning this season.) Muschamp’s staff also employees four analysts, two on offense and two on defense, who make between $60,000 and $82,600 annually. Those staff members are usually in charge of watching film of the Gamecocks and opponents and passing ideas onto the on-field staff. Spurrier’s staff had no analysts. The analyst position is a relatively new addition to most college football staffs. Alabama has 13 coaches, including former Tennessee head coach Butch Jones, listed as analysts in its 2018 media guide. “Two analysts on each side is plenty. I don’t think more is better,” Muschamp said. “You hire coaches and you pay them pretty good to do a job. Part of your job as a coach is to research your position, research your side of the ball, study your opponents. I like doing that instead of asking somebody else to do it.” The biggest reason for the disparity in staff size is hiring Muschamp has done in two areas — recruiting and nutrition. Spurrier’s final staff had two salaried positions outside the coaching staff devoted to recruiting. Muschamp has added a director and assistant director of creative services, a director and assistant director of player personnel and a director of on-campus recruiting. Muschamp’s new hires in recruiting mostly are in charge of organizing on-campus recruiting efforts and creating videos that allow the coaching staff to more efficiently evaluate players. “I don’t like to comment on previous situations, but we needed more work in recruiting,” Muschamp said. “We had to really build that department. That wasn’t something we necessarily had.” The Gamecocks are also putting more money into their nutrition program now and have doubled the salary of the head of that department, and that’s not the only position to be more highly valued. While Andre Goodman made $75,000 to be Spurrier’s director of player personnel, Marcus Lattimore makes $200,000 in a similar position for Muschamp’s team. Those numbers do not include the hiring of associate athletics director for new and creative media Justin King and the seven people in his office. King, whose staff is paid a total of $487,000 annually, works primarily in service of the football program, and he and his staff create promotional videos and content that Muschamp uses recruiting. “He and his staff have made a difference in our program and our athletic department and our university,” Muschamp said. “You can say what you want, whether you like social media or not, but that’s where we are. It appeals to young people. Justin and his staff have done a great job of marketing our brand.” The staff and support numbers also don’t include undergraduate student workers who receive a low hourly rate. Spurrier’s office had spots for four undergraduates, while Muschamp’s has room for 22. The Gamecocks are near the middle of the pack in the SEC when it comes to football staff size, Tanner said. “The size of the staffs have just evolved,” he said. “If you want to, you can be cynical and say, ‘There are too many people. They get paid too much.’ And go on and on and on, but it’s college athletics at the Power 5 level.” 2015 South Carolina football salaries Deke Adams Defensive Line Coach $ 320,000 Joseph Blake Nutritionist $42,001-$46,000 Kirk Botkin Linebacker Coach $ 320,000 Rita Boykin ADMINISTRATIVE COORD I $ 58,848 Grady Brown Quality Control Coordinator $ 270,000 Jordan Diaz RECREATION SPECIALIST I $ 23,660 Shawn Elliott Offensive Line Coach $ 325,000 Kim Fields ADMINISTRATIVE ASST $42,001-$46,000 Ryan Fischer SUPPLY MANAGER I $42,001-$46,000 Andre Goodman DIRECTOR/ADJUNCT $ 75,000 Jon Hoke Co-DC/Defensive Backs $ 400,000 Robbie Liles Director of Football Operations $ 120,000 G.A.

  22. National outlet pegs South Carolina football as top-15 team in 2018 March 29, 2018 Several outlets have been bullish on the 2018 South Carolina football team, putting the Gamecocks in various preseason top 25s. But College Football News raised it to another level. The outlet put the Gamecocks at No. 13 nationally as it went through a "Spring Rankings & Analysis" series. The Gamecocks finished last season at 9-4. "And now Will Muschamp is supposed to do a whole lot more," CFN's Pete Fiutak wrote. "The problem with his time at Florida was the lack of any room for error. There wasn’t any firepower and it wasn’t the most scintillating of styles, but when it works, it’s slow and steady wins the race. "Now, after closing out with a wild bowl win over Michigan for a nine-win campaign, there’s room to be far more entertaining. It starts with having the quarterback in Jake Bentley, helped by getting back top WR Deebo Samuel from injury, and there’s good upside on the lines." He added the system should work, and it will allow the Gamecocks to "push hard" in the SEC East race. The article highlighted the battle at safety and said the running game will need to do more. And in the end, it justified the high ranking with an optimistic outlook. "South Carolina will be good," Fiutak wrote. "If the team can be as sound and solid as it was throughout last season, only with more offensive pop, look out. This might just be the sleeper in the SEC East chase."
  23. Congratulations are in order for South Carolina’s Heisman Trophy winner. George Rogers tweeted a photo of himself and his new wife, Brenda Wilson of Columbia. The couple got married this week in Irmo. Rogers is South Carolina’s all-time leading rusher with 5,204. He won the Heisman in 1980 and went on to a seven-year NFL career with 7,176 yards, two Pro Bowls and a Super Bowl Championship with Washington.
