  3. ‘A jewel’ for Gamecocks: Pickens shows off versatility in Shrine Bowl, even as a QB December 15, 2018 THE STATE .mcclatchy-embed{position:relative;padding:40px 0 56.25%;height:0;overflow:hidden;max-width:100%}.mcclatchy-embed iframe{position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%} Zacch Pickens picked up South Carolina’s Mr. Football award early in the day Saturday at the same time he was showing his versatility during the Shrine Bowl. Pickens turned in a strong defensive performance in the game with seven tackles and a pass break-up. He earned defensive MVP honors for the South Carolina squad in the 10-10 tie in the 82nd annual all-star game. But it was Pickens’ offensive performance that had people talking about after the game. He finished with a team-high 37 yards on seven carries. “The coaches talked about it but they said we may or may not run it,” Pickens said. “I’m glad they gave me the opportunity to do it.” Pickens even was put in the wildcat quarterback position and took direct snaps as he helped the stagnant S.C. offense get going in the second half. He had 19 of his 37 yards on the game-tying drive late in the fourth quarter. “That was a motel room play. We put that in in the motel room,” Sandlappers coach Jackie Hayes said. “Zacch made some big plays and got some crucial yards for us.” Hayes came away impressed what he saw from Pickens both on and off the field this week. “South Carolina has gotten them a jewel, not only as player but as a person. Great attitude, great work ethic. I couldn’t be more pleased with him,” the Dillon hall of fame coach said. Running the ball was nothing new for Pickens, who led T.L. Hanna with yards rushing and 21 touchdowns during the year in helping the Yellow Jackets to Class 5A championship game. Pickens also played on special teams during the game Saturday, something he didn’t do during his senior season. Pickens was one of four South Carolina commits who played in the game with Westwood’s Cam Smith and Williston-Elko’s Keshawn Toney playing for the S.C. squad and Central Cabarrus Derek Boykins going for the N.C. team. Smith finished with five tackles, three solo, before leaving the game with a shoulder injury late in third quarter. Hayes said it was a stinger but Smith told TheBigSpur it might be a torn labrum. Smith tweeted out later he is fine. Toney was targeted twice and had one catch for seven yards. Boykins finished with three tackles and was one of the N.C. captains for the game.
  4. Gamecock great Connor Shaw leaves Furman. Here’s why, and a little on what’s next August 01, 2018 Former South Carolina star quarterback Connor Shaw’s coaching tenure at Furman is over before the start of his first season with the team. The Gamecocks’ winningest all-time quarterback resigned Tuesday to get a jump start on an as-yet undisclosed “private business.” “It’s been a wild couple days, but there are some exciting things coming up,” Shaw told The State. “The move was very difficult and, obviously, unfortunate timing for Furman, and I hate that because they are great people, and I really enjoyed working with them and the players in that room.” Shaw was hired in January as the Paladins tight ends coach. The school announced a new tight ends coach on Tuesday. “I felt like originally I could do both, but it wasn’t fair to Furman, and it wasn’t fair to this new venture,” he said. “Things kind of progressed quickly for this new opportunity, and I really needed to take advantage of it. This call was made that it would benefit my family well, and at the end of the day I have to do what is right by them. A lot of things I learned in the last six months, I will carry over in this venture.” Shaw won 27 games as South Carolina’s starting quarterback from 2010-2013. He is first in school history in completion percentage (65.5), second in touchdown passes (56) and fourth in passing yards (7,597). He played most recently for the Chicago Bears, finishing there in September when he and the team reached an injury settlement after a foot injury. Shaw started one NFL game. In 2014, he started for the Cleveland Browns, completing 14-of-28 passes for 177 yards and an interception. He also rushed seven times for 9 yards in that game. Shaw spent the 2015 season with the Browns rehabbing a thumb injury and was waived by the team in the summer of 2016. Shaw was signed that summer by the Bears.
  5. Ryan Hilinski headed to prestigious All-American Bowl before he enrolls at USC July 11, 2018 Ryan Hilinski tweeted it's something he's hoped to do since he was little. Soon enough, the four-star passer will join South Carolina's football team. But before that, he'll play in the All-American Bowl, formerly the U.S. Army game. Hilinski tweeted the news out Tuesday evening. He'd receiver the invite days earlier, and also was invited and had planned to play in the the Under Armour All-America Game. The All-American Bowl game is January 5, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas. Hilinski has made the Elite 11 and went to The Opening, performing well at both. He's currently the No. 73 player in the 247 composite rankings and the No. 2 pro-style quarterback. Last season, he threw for 3,749 yards, 33 touchdowns and six interceptions, playing in one of the toughest conferences nationally. That included 538 yards in one game. He committed to South Carolina in early April, after spreading the ashes of his brother Tyler in Hawaii. Tyler Hilinski was a quarterback at Washington State who took his own life early this year.

  7. Another SEC Head Coach gone: Texas A&M fires Kevin Sumlin November 26, 2017 Texas A&M joins Arkansas, Ole Miss, Florida and Tennessee for the hunt to find new head coaches. South Carolina’s permanent cross-division rival will have a new man in charge. Texas A&M football officially fired coach Kevin Sumlin on Saturday. The Aggies went 51-26 in his six seasons. Saturday was a busy day for SEC coaching movement as hires at Florida and Tennessee were expected to be cemented shortly. There were reports circulating early in the day Sumlin was a prime candidate for the Arizona State job Todd Graham just lost, but Sports Illustrated’s Bruce Feldman shot that down for the moment. Sumlin went 20-6 in his first two seasons in College Station with Johnny Manziel running a high-powered offense. He received a six-year, $30-million contract, but has lost five games every season since.
  8. SEC response to end of South Carolina-Tennessee game October 18, 2017 A Southeastern Conference official declined comment Wednesday on a clock issue the league was asked by South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp to review. Conference coaches traditionally send SEC coordinator of football officials Steve Shaw plays they would like reviewed each Sunday of the football season, and Muschamp said he asked Shaw to look at how Tennessee was able to run two plays in the final four seconds of the Gamecocks’ 15-9 victory over the Vols on Saturday in Neyland Stadium. SEC spokesman Chuck Dunlap said that conversations between Shaw and the league’s coaches are considered confidential and that the league won’t have any comment on the end of the USC-Tennessee game. Twice this season, the SEC has issued statements when officiating errors were made, first in the Texas A&M-Arkansas game when Aggies quarterback Kellen Mond was incorrectly ruled out of bounds on a touchdown run and again due to a clock error in the Missouri-Kentucky game. The game clock at SEC games is run by a standby official provided by the conference. There is a standby official at every conference game who is ready to replace an official who has to leave during the game due to injury or illness. If the standby official is needed in the game, the play clock operator, usually a person provided by the home team, runs the game clock. No officials left the field in the South Carolina-Tennessee game, meaning the conference’s standby official was running the game clock the entire game.
  9. As USC comes to town, Tennessee fans are howling for coach Butch Jones’s firing October 09, 2017 Analysts have declared his position the hottest seat in the country. His program’s fans are demanding his dismissal. His team is coming off its worst home loss in more than 100 years. In other words, Tennessee football head coach Butch Jones pretty much has to beat South Carolina this Saturday. ESPN, CBS Sports and The Ringer have all declared Jones, whose Volunteers lost two weeks ago to Georgia 41-0, right on the verge of being fired. And it’s easy to see why. On social media, fans have made no effort to keep their displeasure with Jones hidden. Jones has certainly not made things easy on himself. Not only did his team lose in heartbreaking fashion to Florida and get steamrolled by Georgia, he’s made odd comments before, saying his players have “won the biggest championship — that's the championship of life” and most recently explaining that some student-athletes don’t get physical reps in practice but do get “leadership reps.” However, firing Jones would be a costly proposition for Tennessee, according to the Knoxville News-Sentinel. Because he is under contract until the 2021 season, firing him now would result in a contract buyout of nearly $8.5 million. Getting rid of his assistant coaches would bring the total cost to just under $14 million. But given the level of fans’ fury against him, Jones likely needs at the very least a respectable performance against the Gamecocks this week to avoid being fired right away.
  10. Tennessee suspends starting defensive end indefinitely October 09, 2017 Tennessee has suspended starting defensive end Darrell Taylor indefinitely, the latest adversity for a team that has dropped its first two Southeastern Conference games and is coming off its most lopsided home loss since 1905. Volunteers coach Butch Jones said Monday that “multiple factors” had led to Taylor’s suspension. Jones added that no timetable had been set for the sophomore’s potential return. Tennessee (3-2, 0-2 SEC) hosts South Carolina (4-2, 2-2) on Saturday. Taylor already had been expected to miss the first half of Tennessee’s next game because he’d received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for fighting in the second half of the Vols’ 41-0 loss to No. 4 Georgia on Sept. 30. Taylor has 20 overall tackles, two tackles for loss and one sack this season.
  11. Wolfpack’s defensive front ready for leading role in 2017 August 07, 2017 RALEIGH, N.C. - Kentavius Street knows what awaits for North Carolina State’s defensive line. Stacked with experience and headlined by an NFL first-round prospect in Bradley Chubb, the Wolfpack’s front four could be the best symbol of the program’s steady maturation under fifth-year coach Dave Doeren. And so much of the defense’s success in 2017 will depend on how well that unit stuffs the run and hits quarterbacks in the backfield. “I don’t think it’s so much a pressure,” Street said Sunday during the team’s preseason media day. “I would just say it’s we’re accepting our role now, because we’re not little pups anymore. We’re the big dogs on the team. “We’re growing into that role, and with that role comes responsibility.” N.C. State returns four senior starters on the line with Chubb and Street on the outside and B.J. Hill and Justin Jones on the interior. It’s a group that has climbed the depth charts together in a program where Doeren emphasizes developing prospects over time into proven veterans. The quartet probably captures that philosophy better than any part of the projected staring lineup. They know how to play off one another and have a good idea exactly how their linemates will react in a pressure situation – starting Sept. 2 against South Carolina in Charlotte. “It’s definitely a huge advantage,” Chubb said. “We’ve got that camaraderie with each other, and we know what makes each other go.” The four started 12 of the Wolfpack’s 13 games together last season, leading a run defense that finished eighth nationally at 108.6 yards per game. N.C. State tied a school record by holding five opponents to fewer than 70 yards rushing. Chubb grabbed most of the attention, ranking tied for fourth in FBS with 22 tackles for loss and tied for 19th with 10.5 sacks. Street had 5.5 sacks, Jones had three sacks in his first year as a full-time starter, and the 315-pound Hill has the most career starts (31) of anyone on the defense. There’s some experienced depth, too. Junior end Darian Roseboro was second on the team with seven sacks as a top reserve, while junior tackle Eurndraus Bryant has played in 25 games through two seasons. THE STATE
  12. Spurrier, South Carolina discussing recognition at Williams-Brice in 2017 season June 29, 2017 University of South Carolina officials have had “preliminary discussions” about recognizing former football coach Steve Spurrier at a game in Williams-Brice Stadium this season, a school spokesman told The State on Wednesday. “There is nothing set, but if something happens that they want to do that, it would be fine with me, probably,” Spurrier told The State. Spurrier, who is the winningest football coach in history at both South Carolina and Florida, now serves as a consultant and ambassador for the Gators athletic program. Florida will play the Gamecocks in Williams-Brice Stadium on Nov. 11. “I’m not aware that any specific dates have been discussed,” assistant athletic director for media relations Steve Fink told The State via email. Spurrier was 86-49 as South Carolina’s coach from 2005-15. He led the Gamecocks to the 2010 SEC East title, the team’s only SEC title of any kind, and three consecutive 11-win seasons. He resigned midway through the 2015 season. “You will have to check with them. All I can say is nothing has been set,” Spurrier said. “If it happens, fine. If it doesn’t, that’s fine too.” Spurrier will be recognized at a football game at Duke this fall, he said. Spurrier was 20-13-1 as the Blue Devils coach from 1987-89. Former South Carolina football coach Steve Spurrier would be willing to return to Williams-Brice this season to be honored. He didn’t want to last season. THE STATE
  13. Shuler Bentley to follow in the footsteps of father, South Carolina RB coach Bobby Bentley May 03, 2017 URRAY, Ky. — South Carolina running backs coach Bobby Bentley was just like any other dad, forced to answer too many questions that began with why. Except it was a little different with Shuler, the second-oldest of his and Paulette’s five children. Why is the safety getting off the hash? Why is the defensive end dropping back into coverage? Why does the receiver run the route like that? Why does the quarterback take an extra step on his drop? “He was always asking why while he was watching everything with me,” Bobby said. That comes with the territory when the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Bobby, a high school coaching legend in South Carolina, built one of the most successful programs in the state, leading Byrnes to an impressive run that included 119 victories and four consecutive state championships from 2002-05. Now, entering his second season as an assistant for Will Muschamp at South Carolina, Bobby gets to work alongside two of his sons. Jake, who is a few years younger than Shuler, is the Gamecocks quarterback. Stepson Chas Dodd is a graduate assistant strength coach. If his coaching career starts the way he hopes it will, Shuler will become a graduate assistant at South Carolina. In the meantime, he’s a redshirt junior at Murray State. Having transferred from Old Dominion, Shuler is trying to win the Murray State starting quarterback job. “Real smart. Real cerebral kid. Knows ball,” Racers coach Mitch Stewart said. “Understands, conceptually, what’s going on. You don’t have to teach him what smash is and why you call it smash, things like that. The learning curve was really easy for him. “Then, also, you’ve got a kid who’s got collegiate experience. He’s got starts at Old Dominion and played very well up there, so very excited. Very excited to have him.” Shuler started eight of the 10 games he played as a redshirt freshman in 2015, completing 140 of 269 passes with 12 touchdowns and 6 interceptions for the Monarchs. In 2016, he appeared in two games, connecting on 4 of 10 passes for 66 yards. “It got to where he just wasn’t having fun,” Bobby said, “and I told him, as much as you love football, you need to have a change of venue. You need to have a fresh start. You don’t need to lose that fire that you have for this game. “He’s back loving life again and the game of football here.” Last Friday, Shuler was the first quarterback to take the field in the Murray State spring game. He’s one of five competing for the starting job. KD Humphries, who owns school records for passing yards and touchdown passes, completed his eligibility last season. “Murray State has been everything that I needed for it to be,” Shuler said. “I appreciate Coach Stewart giving me another chance. … I’ve loved every minute here. I can’t wait to have another year-and-a-half, two years of ball, playing and getting a degree from Murray State.” Full circle It’s funny how football can connect one path to another. For Shuler, the road to Murray State began when Bobby packed the family and moved to Alabama in 2014, after he was hired as an offensive assistant at Auburn by Gus Malzahn. The family settled in nearby Opelika, Stewart’s hometown. Jake played quarterback at Opelika High, where he was coached by Brian Blackmon, who would become the intermediary for Shuler and Murray State. Blackmon, Stewart said, “sent me a text and said, ‘Hey, man, do you need a quarterback?’ He told me who he was and I was like, ‘Shoot, yeah.’ ” Stewart won’t name a starter until preseason camp, but Shuler spent the final week or two of Racers spring practice quarterbacking the first-team offense. “He’s done a good job fitting in, coming in midyear and fitting in and getting with the boys, being able to rally the boys and all that kind of stuff, so it’s been good,” Stewart said. “It’s one of those things, if you can find that quarterback that you get comfortable with, as a player-caller, that’s what you look for. “And, obviously, he gives you some of that, because you’re not going to catch the kid off guard.” South Carolina connection Shuler couldn’t care less that he’s trying to win a job at Murray State while his younger brother is entrenched as the starter at South Carolina. What gets him is that he’s not on the same team as his dad and two brothers. Shuler’s father, Bobby, coaches Gamecocks running backs. His older stepbrother, Chas Dodd, is a graduate assistant on the strength staff. Jake, the younger brother, is the quarterback “It’s awesome, but then again, that’s the only part I do get jealous at, they get to all be together,” Shuler said, “But it’s awesome that they get to celebrate together. I feel like I’m right there when I’m watching it on TV.” And watch he does. Before games last season at Old Dominion, if South Carolina was playing, Shuler was tuned in. “I have Watch ESPN. I ditched listening to music during pregame warm-ups and started listening to the radio or the commentary on my headphones as I was warming up, which was kind of fun,” Shuler said. “But also kind of got made fun of for watching the game in the middle of the field, two hours before the game, but anybody would do that for their brother.” Following in the footsteps Bobby calls him a “football nerd.” Shuler prefers “football guy.” Dodd tends to lean toward Bobby’s choice of nomenclature. “Ever since [shuler] was old enough to really watch TV and know what he was watching, he constantly had ESPN on. He doesn’t just watch it for football. He watches it for every sport imaginable,” Dodd said. “He could know what the judge’s name is for a racquetball tournament. He’s just so involved in sports and ESPN, it’s an immediate carryover to the field and the position and the sport he plays, because he takes the same approach. “He’s going to know a defense in and out. He studies the game more than anyone I’ve been around. It’s really crazy to kind of see the level of commitment, in that aspect that he has. He’s been that way as long as I can remember. It’s crazy.” Watching games on TV when they were growing up would drive Jake crazy. “Every game, if the game was three hours long, it would take us five hours to watch it, because [shuler] and my dad would just always rewind it, draw up a play or dad would quiz us,” Jake said. “What defense is this? What play would work good here? At times, I just wanted to watch the game.” Shuler, Jake said, “always, just 24/7, wanted to rewind stuff. With him, I think that just helped with him being so football smart. He just loves watching football. Now that I’ve gotten older, I’ve gotten that way, too. But he’s been that way since he was really young.” Shuler, “without a doubt,” is going to follow in Bobby’s footsteps. That’s been the plan since he was in third grade. “That’s what I want to do and it’s helped that my dad’s in coaching and I have connections,” Shuler said. “Hopefully, something happens in a year and a half, two years, so we can go from there. Hopefully, dad and Muschamp hire me. I think I know a guy down there.” SECCOUNTRY
  14. Former South Carolina QB Connor Shaw tweets he’s signing with Chicago Bears March 04, 2017 Connor Shaw is getting another shot at the playing in the NFL with the Chicago Bears. Shaw posted on Twitter a picture of himself signing paperwork with the caption, “Grateful to get back in a Bears uniform. Colossians 3:17.” Shaw went undrafted out of South Carolina before first being signed by the Cleveland Browns. This past offseason Shaw signed with the Bears but suffered a season-ending leg injury in the preseason. In his time at South Carolina, Shaw threw for over 6,000 career yards and 56 touchdowns. He has one career start in the NFL, which came with the Browns. The Bears have yet to decide on what they will do with quarterback Jay Cutler.
