  1. Can the Gamecocks take any encouragement with a 24 point loss to Alabama? Sept. 15, 2019 Carolina was a 26-point underdog Saturday. In the end, the Gamecocks covered the spread, but lost to the No. 2 Tide, 47-23. They became Alabama’s 25th straight SEC East victim.

  2. Can the Gamecocks take any encouragement with a 24 point loss to Alabama? Sept. 15, 2019 Carolina was a 26-point underdog Saturday. In the end, the Gamecocks covered the spread, but lost to the No. 2 Tide, 47-23. They became Alabama’s 25th straight SEC East victim. So are you allowed to be encouraged by a lopsided loss to a giant? Most Gamecock fans didn’t have the Tar Heels topping the Gamecocks on Aug. 31. No one had the Gamecocks upsetting the Tide two weeks later either. But here South Carolina was late in the first half, driving with a chance to cut the Bama lead to seven at the break. said USC coach Will Muschamp. “I thought we made some nice strides today. We didn’t get what we wanted, and that’s to win the game.” That theme of “no moral victories” was present with each South Carolina post-game interview. Players echoed their coach’s message. For all the good they did, the Gamecocks still had too many red zone shortcomings (see coming up empty with on that 77-yard march at the end of the second quarter), too many missed tackles and too many untimely penalties. Added together against a team like Alabama and you’re destined for a sound beating. The Tide, with five-star talent at all positions, does this to opponents. Its average margin of regular season victory since the beginning of last season is now 35.8 points. We learned both good things (Hilinski’s 324 yards in his second career start) and bad things (allowing Tua Tagovailoa’s 444 yards) about the Gamecocks on Saturday. The key is how they spin it forward. At the start of the season, no one was circling Alabama as a must-win. At 1-2 — and with the quest for bowl eligibility still on everyone’s minds — that label can applied on the next two match-ups. Hosting the Tide was fun. Traveling to Missouri (Sept. 21) and then hosting Kentucky (Sept. 28) was always more important. “Moving forward,” said senior center Donell Stanley, “we’re going to be desperate, we’re going to be hungry. We need wins.”
  3. Can the Gamecocks find 6 wins to be Bowl eligible for 2019 season? Sept. 14, 2019 Gamecocks stand at 1-2 heading up to the other Columbia to face Mizzu. I see 5 games left in the season as winnable, the Gamecocks could end the season at 6-6 if no slip ups and if one possible upset then the Gamecocks would bounce up to a 7-5 season for 2019. winnable games left on schedule include Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Appalachian St. Only potable upset to me is Florida here at home. 6-6 or 7-5 with an upset. Georgia , Clemson and Texas A&M not really going to happen now. GFC poll of the week can the Gamecocks win 6 or 7 games to go bowling in 2019?
  4. Gamecock players have a game plan for preparing against Alabama Sept. 11, 2019 Gamecock players are facing one of the toughest task early in there schedule against No. 2 Alabama at Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturday, but it’s something they’ve prepared for and welcome. (VIEW ARTICLE)
  5. Gamecock players have a game plan for preparing against Alabama Sept. 11, 2019 Gamecock players are facing one of the toughest task early in there schedule against No. 2 Alabama at Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturday, but it’s something they’ve prepared for and welcome. “You come to the SEC to play the best competition and Alabama will probably be the best competition that we will probably face so it’s exciting,” WR Bryan Edwards said, according to Josh Kendall of The Athletic. The veteran added that freshman QB Ryan Hilinski told coaches that he’s comfortable playing fast. “When we go fast, we get a lot of busted coverage.” Edwards didn’t quite buy into the term mystique when describing the Crimson Tide. “A what?,” he said, according to David Cloninger of the Post and Courier. “I mean, they’re Alabama, they’re a great team. I don’t really know what a mystique is … ” For his part, though, LB Ernest Jones admitted it is a barometer. “This is definitely the measuring stick,” he said. “We are excited. You can tell the energy is there. We are ready to play. I’m excited. I know they’re excited.” Jones added that he’s aware that Nick Saban is undefeated (16-0) against his former assistants, including 2-0 against South Carolina coach Will Muschamp, but Jones said he wouldn’t bring it up. Newcomer RB Tavien Feaster, a Clemson transfer, has experience against the Crimson Tide. He had 3 carries for 11 yards last season in the national championship game. The year before, he had 4 rushes for 10 yards. “They’re gonna come at you…gotta be prepared,” Feaster told reporters today, including Mike Gillespie of ABC Columbia.
  6. Dowdle: One-two punch with Feaster could be among country's best Sept. 04, 2019 One game into his timeshare with Tavien Feaster, Rico Dowdle believes the South Carolina Gamecocks running back duo is on track to have a productive season. The seniors combined for 24 carries and 134 yards with a touchdown in the 24-20 loss to North Carolina. Among SEC rushers with at least 10 carries in Week 1 (and zero), Dowdle and Feaster are ranked No. 5 and No. 6, respectively, in the league’s yards per carry category. Of course, there’s just a slight difference between Dowdle (5.64) and Feaster (5.54). (VIEW ARTICLE) FREE 247SPORTS
  7. Jake Bentley dealing with injury that ended his senior season Sept. 10, 2019 The surgery to his foot is going to put quarterback Jake Bentley on the shelf for the rest of what should have been his senior season. Bentley got a second opinion on a mid-foot injury last Friday, a week after hurting it against North Carolina, and USC coach Will Muschamp announced his season was over this Sunday. Some of his team mates had this to say concerning Jake: Tailback Rico Dowdle had this to say about his team mate. “Jake is a very strong person. I hate it for him, but he’s been every meeting. He’s taking it how he’s supposed to take it. You just can’t get down on yourself, obviously, dealing with injuries and just got to keep going and gonna get better each day. And like I said, he’s taken it very well, handled it very well. Still in all the meetings, still being vocal as much as he can be when he’s around the building and things like that.” Dowdle acknowledge the team knew it was a strong possibility after the initial diagnosis had him out for at least a month and a half. The team prepared for every outcome and has a good deal of confidence in Bentley’s replacement, Ryan Hilinski. Bentley career at South Carolina. He came into this season with more than 30 starts and 19 career wins under his belt. He’d taken the Gamecocks to three bowl games and was within striking distance of program records for passing yards and passing touchdowns. Now he has to support the team in a different way. He can still lend his perspective to Hilinski and backup quarterback Dakereon Joyner, seeing a little something with veteran eyes they might not. linebacker Ernest Jones has talked to Jake and had this to say about the long time starter. “He’s a positive guy. We’re all behind him. It kind of sucks. It hurts. He’s a leader of this team. He’s done a lot for this program and we’re thankful for everything he’s done. He’s taken it well though. He’s not too down on himself. There’s a plan for everybody and that just so happened to be him.” Jones added Bentley is still part of the team, ‘whether he knows it or not,’ and he’s still a No. 1 guy. For the rest of the year, it should be Hilinski’s show. The former top-75 recruit showed well in his first game against an FCS opponent but will get dunked into an SEC schedule with Alabama this week. Bentley will have a chance at a final college season in 2020, but how things settle with that season are yet to be seen. Wide receiver Bryan Edwards declined when asked to compare Hilinski and Bentley as leaders. He said this year, they don’t have Bentley. It’s not so tough to deal with, and they just have to look forward. “He’s not there, so we’ve got to move on,” Edwards said. “I’m out there catching passes from Ryan, so it’s not tough to see or gauge or anything like that.”
  8. The Gamecocks are going into its first big-time matchup of the year with a mostly clean bill of health Sept. 10, 2019 Coach Will Muschamp on defending Tua Tagovailoa: Have to be disciplined in rush lanes. Tua has uncanny ability in off-rhythm plays. Have to restrict lanes up front and maintain coverage. Coach Will Muschamp on working under Saban: You treat every game the same … A large % of what we do came from Nick (spring install, player evaluation) I learned a lot, but this is about Alabama's 11 and South Carolina's 11. I haven't worked with Nick since 2005. Muschamp on tackling: Emphasized every day … if you stop moving your feet, you have 0% chance of tackling a good athlete. We also want to leverage ball the right way. If you don't make tackle, you must leverage the ball (force runner to change direction) the right way. Injury notes from Will Muschamp: WR Randrecous Davis ran today but don't know what his availability will be, RB Deshaun Fenwick may be out, DL Keir Thomas still out. Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp said his ankle infection will still keep him off the field as USC is set to face the Tide. The coach said it would take two weeks from his initial announcement to have a tangible update on the situation

  11. Grading the Gamecocks improvements all over the field Saturday Sept. 09, 2019 Gamecocks crushed Charleston Southern Buccaneers at Williams-Brice Stadium 72-10 Saturday to earn there first win of the young season. OFFENSE Quarterbacks: Ryan Hilinski stats say it all he had 282 yards on 24-of-30 passing. He threw one pick late in the game. Plus CS was not the best competition, but it was a good a debut as one could ask for. Now to Dakereon Joyner had 41 rushing yards on his first carry and added another TD. Grade: A+ Running backs: Rico Dowdle did some lead-back things with 87 yards and a pair of scores on 10 carries. Tavien Feaster had most of his damage in the passing game had a total 83 total yards. Freshman Kevin Harris converted a key third down and scored three TD's with 147 yards on six carries. Mon Denson also had his third 100-yard game. Grade A+ Wide receivers: The production was more balanced out, Bryan Edwards getting 112 yards and a pair of touchdowns on his five catches. There weren’t a ton of big plays (four of 15 or more before the game was fully out of hand). Solid day overall. Grade A- Tight ends: Kyle Markway was the team’s No. 2 pass catcher with four balls for 37 yards. Nick Muse added two more catches and nearly had a TD, he did fumble though. They where solid in the run game. Grade: B Offensive line: They did go against an FCS defense, for the most part the Gamecocks did what they wanted. They ran for 493 yards. The Buccaneers were credited with no hurries or sacks, though one free runner helped force a pick from Hilinski. Grade A DEFENSE Defensive line: The group did their part well. Gamecocks did where credited for one sack and four hurries. The CSU run game got basically all of its yards on two runs. A solid day after the bad opener. Grade: A Linebackers: The Buccaneers had minus-2 yards on 15 carries before the fourth. No one player put up big stats, but Jahmar Brown made a nice play in coverage. Grade: B+ Defensive backs: Relying on youth will be mistakes.There were a couple of breakdowns with the Gamecocks. Good news here the Gamecocks did intercept three passes and held a pass-heavy offense to a miserable day, with the top top passers being held to 118 yards. Grade: B- Special teams: CSU was kicking away from the Gamecocks best players, so the return game really couldn't do much. There was a missed extra point, a 47-yard field goal and no CSU returns of note. Grade: C COACHING The Gamecocks were breaking in a new QB, coming off a rather crushing loss. They came out, left nothing to chance and ran away with it, getting two QBs in the mix. Grade: A OVERVIEW: Make no mistake about it the Gamecocks played a really bad team Saturday, Most inportsntly Gamecocks put up massive numbers (a school record for yards) and had Ryan Hilinski look a player on a mission. The backups played most of the second half. Pretty good day over all for the Gamecocks. Grade: A+
  12. Ryan Hilinski’s debut was just the beginning Sept. 08, 2019 His day was near as perfect as one could write it. He hit his first 12 passes. When it looked as if he was only feasting on short throws, he hit a 60-yard bomb for a touchdown. The team scored 70-plus points and posted its most yards ever. No it was not against Alabama, but you play whoever is in front of you that day. (VIEW ARTICLE)
  13. Will Muschamp Sunday night conference call with injury list Sept. 08,2019 | sportstalk.com USC coach Will Muschamp Sunday night during his conference call with reporters said quarterback Jake Bentley has had surgery on his foot injury and will not play again this season. Bentley was injured on the last play of the season-opening loss to North Carolina. Bentley suffered a lisfranc injury and had a couple of opinions about the medical process before deciding to have the surgery. Bentley is a fourth-year senior who has not redshirted, so he would have the option to return for the 2020 season. Muschamp said he and Bentley have not discussed the future plans yet saying that it’s a tough time for Bentley and his family right now. Some other injury notes: OL Eric Douglas, who has a foot injury, did not practice today but is expected to practice Tuesday and Wednesday. WR Randrecous Davis was running in practice today with the training staff. RB Deshaun Fenwick was not at practice today due to a family issue but will be back for practice Tuesday. Also dealing with a shoulder injury. CB AJ Turner had thumb surgery but practice today and will be fine. DE Brad Johnson did not practice tonight due to a groin injury. Will Muschamp conference call
  14. Ryan Hilinski’s debut was just the beginning Sept. 08, 2019 His day was near as perfect as one could write it. He hit his first 12 passes. When it looked as if he was only feasting on short throws, he hit a 60-yard bomb for a touchdown. The team scored 70-plus points and posted its most yards ever. No it was not against Alabama, but you play whoever is in front of you that day. Muschamp said. “I thought Ryan played extremely well in the game. He started 12 for 12 in the game. Very accurate with the football, quick with his decisions, decisively where he was taking the football. We played well around him, obviously. There’s no pressure all day, “But he played well, first start.” It was a good showing, no doubt, but it’s only one step that the true freshman quarterback toke today with more to come. Hilinski, has been loaded with promise and expectations from the first day he step foot on Campus. Gamecock fans were mad at Jake Bentley. They wanted Hilinski sight unseen, and the sight they got Saturday was pretty good, but in the context where pretty good is expected. (Muschamp directly said as much). Now Hilinski heads into the week after the promising start, but his path to achieve even more promises will be daunting with the schedule at hand. Next up Alabama who makes some great QB's look extremely ragged. Ryan biggest challenge yes, but only one of several the young QB will face this season. Bentley's first start, good remember along with others: In the beginning. Bentley’s first afternoon was a big day as well came against UMass. Brandon McIlwain’s and Lorenzo Nunez’s first starts felt like they had promise. Syvelle Newton threw for 324 yards. Steve Taneyhill threw 14 times total. This Quarterback could have a diferent out come in the long run. Why would Ryan's track record could have a better outcome in the long run? Coach Muschamp saw something in the young QB. Muschamp said." Hilinski might be built a little differently, forced to grow up faster because of the tragedy that befell his family with his brother’s suicide. But in the afterglow, it’s worth holding fast to the fact Ryan’s Hilinski’s USC story wasn’t written Saturday and won’t be written next Saturday. If Bentley’s path is any indication, Hilinski’s story won’t fully be written and judged for years down the line. Yet for the first go, he left a sweltering Williams-Brice Stadium awash in adulation with fans and teammates singing his praises. “He was going through his reads,” receiver Bryan Edwards said. “He wasn’t staring one guy down or anything like that, just doing what he was coached to do and going out there and executing.” Corner Jaycee Horn added: “He has great arm talent. He can throw it from any angle, and it gets there as y’all have seen today. Just happy for him.”
  15. Gamecocks get second opinion on Bentley injury. Decision soon for what happens next Sept. 07, 2019 Coach Will Muschamp said the foot injury Jake Bentley suffered against North Carolina could have ended his season. And Saturday, Muschamp was mum where things will go. Bentley got a second opinion on if he’ll need surgery for a Lisfranc injury. Surgery would end his season, but if he doesn’t need it, he could possibly be back on the field in as little as six weeks. That means possibly missing five games. Muschamp said the team got the opinion — declining to reveal specifics — but he wanted to meet with Jake and Bobby Bentley on Sunday to talk over the best course of action.
  16. LOOK: South Carolina reveals throwback uniform combo for home opener vs. Charleston Southern South Carolina is going with a throwback look for its home opener on Saturday. On Friday, the Gamecocks teased the uniforms with a hype video on Twitter:
  17. How will the turnout be for the Gamecocks home opener This Saturday isn’t lining up to be a great attendance week for South Carolina football. The opponent, Charleston Southern, isn’t a big draw. add in last week lost against North Carolina makes it even worst for attendance. Now the threat of a hurricane during the week, which will create some instability around the state. The game is at noon and projects to be a hot one. There is the benefit of it being the home opener and the curiosity of quarterback Ryan Hilinski’s first college start. Really the only draw to the game Saturday. Question will you be one that shows and why and why not? Sound off it's hear it!!
  18. Improve the Gamecocks offensive attack: More deep shots? Sept. 06, 2019 RB Rico Dowdle the senior tailback has played for two coordinators, one head coach and now four offenses that have had their share of ups and downs, another big downer Saturday against the Tarheels. RB Rico Dowdle not shy, he had a few thoughts about how things might change after the team scored seven points across the final 48 minutes of game time. Starting off with. “I think we could have ran the ball on the them all game, if you ask me,” Dowdle said. “We didn’t run it as much as we did in the first half.” Through one quarter, the Gamecocks had nine carries for 90 yards. The next 19 non-sack carries netted 58 yards. Another issue Dowdle saw — not enough from the deep ball. “I don’t think we took a lot of shots down the field,” Dowdle said. “I guess we could just take more shots.” Gamecocks threw a few deep balls, but hardly any that were particularly threatening. Only four completions netted more than 11 yards, and one of those was a swing pass to Dowdle behind the line of scrimmage. Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp objected to that characterization, arguing the lack of deep passing was tied to breakdowns elsewhere. He said there were 17 plays with a primary read down the field, but things didn’t line up to hit them. So Sunday Muschamp had this to say "one of the first questions I asked to our offensive staff was that we need to attack the field vertically,” Muschamp said. “So you go back and you look at it, we had 17 calls where the primary read was a vertical read down the field. With that being said, protection breaks down, the route is covered, which changes the coverage and changes the read, obviously.” Protection clearly stood out, as problems in the interior line left Jake Bentley with little room to step up. The team has moved guard Donell Stanley inside to center and could replace the other starting guard depending on how the week goes at practice. The Gamecock offense ended up getting the ball on the perimeter a good bit, with backs and QB-turned-receiver Dakereon Joyner hauling in six of the team’s 16 receptions, mostly on swing passes, screens or jet sweeps. The team’s total output of 4.4 yards per play would have been the team’s second-worst mark last season, second-worst of 2017 and fifth-worst of 2016. In addition to using Dowdle and Tavien Feaster less as the game went on, the team had trouble all day getting the ball to their top pass catchers, whether that was deep, intermediate or otherwise. After Charleston Southern this week, the schedule becomes all SEC. If USC hopes to turn things around with a new QB at the helm in Ryan Hilinski, it will need to start getting those playmakers in the mix wherever they can. “We’ve got two guys that have been very effective in training camp in Bryan (Edwards) and Shi (Smith),” Muschamp said, “and they’ve got to touch the ball more. We need to get more touches to those guys where we’re guaranteed we’re going to get the ball in their hands regardless of the coverage and circumstances. That’s something we’ve talked about.”
  19. Judging by a recent Instagram post by Hilinski, the true freshman is excited to see the field on Saturday and is asking Gamecock Nation to come out and support the team as they attempt to secure the first win of the season:
  20. The heat is on Sept. 05, 2019 South Carolina’s defense has some redeeming to do and the pressure to succeed weighs heavier on those shoulders now that a freshman is leading the Gamecocks offense. It was a poor second half showing in the season opener in Charlotte. After defending their end zone and limited North Carolina scoring to four field goal attempts, the Gamecocks defense could not hold on to an 11-point lead with less than a quarter and a half to play. Back-to-back 90-plus yard touchdown drives were surrendered due to lack of execution, lack of tackling, passes that should have been intercepted and more. (VIEW ARTICLE) FREE 247SPORTS
  21. Ryan Hilinski The QB how he impressed coaches and teammates so far Sept. 04, 2019 In a perfect world the Gamecocks would have a strong 2018 season, Bentley would ride off to the NFL and Hilinski would beat the field for the job to replace him. Reality that has all changed, a foot injury will sideline Bentley for between six weeks and the whole season. (VIEW ARTICLE)
