  1. This is from the STATE here are the key parts to read full article CLICK THIS Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables and South Carolina head coach Shane Beamer would make logical sense as top options, given their ties to the program Both Venables and Beamer have been linked to the Sooners opening by way of the various national lists predicting who could possibly replace Riley. Time will tell how serious the interest is between Oklahoma and either coach. Venables was a defensive coordinator for former Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops from 1999 to 2011 before he was hired at Clemson. Beamer spent three years on Riley’s staff before landing the South Carolina job. Longtime Oklahoman sports columnist Berry Tramel spoke with The State on both Venables’ and Beamer’s potential candidacies at OU. BP: Starting with Brent Venables, how do folks in Norman view his tenure and how’s he thought of these days in OU circles? BT: “Venables was beloved for many years and then he sort of made a scapegoat among the fans. When things started sliding a little bit in (2009, 2010, 2011) fans quickly forgot how good his 2009 defense was. It was a great defense. Golly, in the 22, 23 years of the house of (Bob) Stoops, it’s the second best OU defense, I’d say, behind the (2001) defense and 2000 defense — the year they won (the national title) it was really good, too. BP: Same thing on Shane, how did folks view his tenure and what was the vibe around him during his time in Norman? BT: “Now on Beamer, the fans really never got to know him much. They don’t have a strong opinion one way or the other, I don’t think. I got to sort of studying Shane and he just had all the intangibles. Didn’t surprise me at all when South Carolina came calling. I have said this in the last 24 hours: If Shane had not taken the Gamecocks job — he’s still on the staff (at Oklahoma) — I think he’d be the head coach at OU right now. I think they would have elevated him just immediately. I think everybody had that experience with him — just top of the line.” BP: Brent’s candidacy for head coaching jobs all over is well-documented. Why — if it is the case — would this be a gig he might be interested in actually chasing? BT: “I don’t know what’s kept him from taking a good one. I got to believe he’s been offered all kinds of good ones before. I assume Kansas State’s offered him both times Bill Snyder retired, but I don’t know that. I don’t know why he hasn’t taken one and I don’t know why this would be any different. BP: How important is head coaching track record given both Venables and Beamer only have one year of head coaching experience between them? BT: “That matters zero at Oklahoma. ... One coach since 1935 had ever been a head coach before. In fact, some people would say, you’d be nuts to go chase the hottest name: (Cincinnati’s) Luke Fickell or (Baylor’s) Dave Aranda or (Iowa State’s) Matt Campbell, (Kentucky’s) Mark Stoops.
  2. South Carolina sophomore wide receiver Ger-Cari Caldwell has entered the transfer portal, Gamecock Central has learned. The 6-foot-5, 200-pound Rock Hill native played in six games last season as a freshman and caught one pass for five yards. This season, however, Caldwell saw his playing time diminish and he appeared in just one game, recording no stats. A former three-star prospect from Northwestern High School, Caldwell technically has four years of eligibility left (due to last year being a COVID year) as he enters the portal.
  3. Carolina bound? Beamer has very good deplore with this young men. Feel Beamer will get the job done here in recruiting. Just got to do some tweaking on the offensive side. Which he will do... If others see his potential like Oklahoma why are some in a hurry to make a judgment here on Beamer? We are not world betters here. Already committed to South Carolina and Beamer
  4. SEC Bowl Eligible Teams Who’s Bowl Eligible: Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M Who Already Isn’t Bowl Eligible: Vanderbilt Bowl Bubble Florida (5-6: Florida State) LSU (5-6: Texas A&M)
  5. DL Zacch Pickens says South Carolina football is taking that sixth win as a challenge. Sitting at 5-5 for the 2021 season, the Gamecocks have two chances to earn a single win needed for bowl eligibility with final home games against Auburn and Clemson. Pickens, a third-year veteran along the Gamecocks' defensive line, was assured the Gamecocks would reach the mark when speaking with reporters Tuesday. “One of the things that we’re trying to send our seniors and older guys with is a bowl game,” Pickens said. “That’s one thing we’re gonna give them.” First-year head coach Shane Beamer inherited a South Carolina program that went 2-8 in 2020 and hasn’t appeared in a bowl since the 2018 season, when the Gamecocks were shut out 28-0 by Virginia in the Belk Bowl. Preseason pundits estimated South Carolina would win three or four games, but the tune seemed to change when the Gamecocks earned their fifth win in a 40-17 rout of Florida. Running back Kevin Harris said a bowl berth could hush the doubts further.

  7. Here are some of his quotes from presser today Auburn QB TJ Finley: "The main thing I'm focusing on is consistency. I don't need to do anything special. I need to just go out there and do my job". Finley on running the ball: "It's going to be very important. We need to dominate the line of scrimmage in the run game and the passing game ... Once we get the run game going -- and I believe we will ... I do believe you'll see a different run attack this week". T.J. Finley on running the ball: "I do believe you'll see a different run attack this week and I can't wait for you guys to see that."

  9. Coach Beamers Sunday night tele-Conference quotes Nov. 14, 2021 Beamer: Didn't think his team was flat. Beamer: Team was just off and inconsistent in all three phases. Beamer on offensive futility: We had some play-action opportunities and didn't hit them. Used some max-protect for double-moves that didn't work out. They played man coverage and we've got to get open. Beamer: They did a lot of what we thought they would do (defensively). Ran their DEs up the field more than on film. On 3rd down, they used some different fronts and pressures. Loaded the box, played 0 coverage and stopped the run. Beamer: Some of the sacks weren't on the OL. Jason Brown knows this, sometimes he has to step up in the pocket. Can't always escape outside if they're rushing their DEs upfield, but sometimes there were guys not picked up. Beamer: After reviewing film, I'm not saying I'm happy b/c we lost, but there were some good things and what went wrong in protection wasn't all on the OL.

  11. My take is we hired Beamer because this was the place he wanted to be, then why not offer this young man the same opportunity here. Doubles standard. usually this one will bit us in the ass like the young man playing for Missouri. Gamecocks offer or not, in-state quarterback having spectacular senior season Nov. 14, 2020 If the University of South Carolina or any other college football team was on the fence about offering Prometheus Franklin a scholarship, they should watch Friday’s game film against A.C. Flora, Greenville High coach Greg Porter says. The Greenville senior quarterback arguably had his best game of the season in the 27-26 win over the Falcons at Memorial Stadium in the second round of the Class 4A playoffs. Franklin threw for a season-high 361 yards and four touchdowns, including the game-winner to Tyler Brown with 28 seconds left. Franklin also showed he could take the hits from a relentless Flora defense and was on the turf for a bit after throwing the game-winning score. “I hope tonight, whether the Gamecocks was ever doubting whether he was a Gamecock or not, you see a kid with resiliency that is going to work hard,” Porter said. Franklin has made no secret of his desire to play for the Gamecocks. He had a Gamecock wristband on his left arm during Friday’s game that was played less than two miles from the edge of South Carolina’s campus. He has visited the school four times and likely will take another trip for the Clemson game.

  13. QB Spencer Rattler decides to transfer from Oklahoma Do not think though Gamecocks will have a chance with him.
  14. I understand when we sub players, we have to allow the defense a chance, but how long? Watching that referee hold up the snap with the clock running drove me nuts. The clock was all the way down to 9 seconds before he got out of the way.
  15. Every day reader, first time posting... When you played football…fill in the blank 1-4 1. What was the accountability for penalties you caused? a. We (Individually) had to run once around the football field for each yard of penalty we caused when practice started. b. If we had more than 1 penalty we had to sit until coach decided it was time to give us another try. 2. How were you coached when making mistakes? a. When missing blocks or assignments it was often met with a grab of the facemask by the coach on the sideline with a personal one on one helmet conversation on why we weren’t playing as coached. b. I realize it is a different level, but our coach called a “Time Out” out of pure disgust just to administer corrections in an eloquent spit fueled face mask discussion. (Seemed very effective) 3. Did you celebrate wins over what coached deemed lesser opponents? a. If we played poorly, practices were always, and I mean always, much much more difficult. b. We weren’t allowed to celebrate poor performances when he knew we were the better team. c. Don’t embarrass the coach! 4. Did you fear tough conversations with coach? a. We tried to play our assignments to avoid those! Coach did celebrate our good plays with us but the bad stuff was corrected quickly, he wasn’t a cheerleader, he was a football coach. What were your experiences?
