  2. Gamecock target DE Reggie Grimes of Brentwood, TN shorting his list August 15, 2019 In interview with Ryan Wright of (link: http://RecruitingNewsGuru.com) RecruitingNewsGuru.com, #Gamecocks target DE Reggie Grimes of Brentwood, TN said he's dropped LSU from list leaving USC, Alabama, Florida State, Tennessee and Vanderbilt as the contenders with his announcement on November 2nd. Interview: 5-Star 2020 Tennessee DE/OLB Reggie Grimes Talks Top 5 and Visits There is a good reason Reggie Grimes is rated as a five-star recruit (ESPN). The Class of 2020 defender has it all; size (6-3.5, 240), speed (4.51 laser), and the determination to be the best showcasing his abilities at The Opening this summer against the best of the best in the nation. Grimes spent his junior season building up the resume to get to this point with Mount Juliet High School taking on 6A Tennessee competition working to earn over 20 scholarship offers. His senior season begins in a different way having narrowed his top schools list down to five, has a set commitment date of Nov. 2, and will suit up for Ravenwood (Brentwood) to close out his high school career. In an RNG catch-up interview, Grimes takes a break from fall camp with the Raptors giving insight on the new team and his recruiting process that will heat up with numerous game day visits set.

  5. Lunch With Lou Sept 1999 When me and my brother had a site nearly 20 years ago. Called GAMECOCKSPORTSPLUS.COM We had a lot of writers before Rivals and 247 among others and Rusty the Rooster, Trooper Del. Not the best of shape bud anyhow get a test of what it was like to be at Lunch with Lou. I had a jerky hand that day. Lunch with Lou happens every week during the Gamecock football season where fans ate with Lou and crew. while Lou was at South Carolina.
  6. Living in the past? Why Gamecocks are eager to build their own legacy under Muschamp August 11, 2019 Melvin Ingram, Bruce Ellington, Marcus Lattimore, Jadeveon Clowney, Connor Shaw, D.J. Swearinger and Alshon Jeffery. They’re among the former South Carolina players who hover over the Gamecocks each time they practice at their indoor facility. It’s not the ex-USC stars themselves, but it’s their large images posted to a wall. Spread from one 25-yard line to another, the collection of Steve Spurrier products can serve as a reminder of an era that fans still cling to. A time when the Gamecocks beat Clemson five straight times, finished in the final Top 25 four straight times and won 11 games three straight times. Highlights from that period often get posted to social media. Like when Twitter account @GamecockSplash continued a countdown to the beginning of the 2019 season by bringing back scenes from USC’s win over Georgia in 2012. It included the caption: “35 days until @GamecockFB ... No. 6 ranked South Carolina beats No. 5 Georgia, 35-7 in 2012. Need to get back to this.” (VIEW ARTICLE) THE STATE
  7. Fatherhood has Kinlaw as motivated as ever August 08, 2019 When Javon Kinlaw was placed at Jones County Community College in Ellisville, Miss. he was motivated to get back to South Carolina. He responded by becoming one of the most coveted junior college recruits in the nation. When he finally arrived to play for the Gamecocks he was motivated to change his body and lost close to 40 pounds, a complete transformation that put him on the map of SEC defensive lineman with potential.

  8. Offenses will have to deal Zacch Pickens August 08, 2019 Offensive lineman Eric Douglas talks Zacch Pickens “He’s an animal,” Douglas said. “He’s going to be great. He’s gonna be a good one. Ever since spring, he’s been getting stronger. Coach Scott helping out, he’s gonna get his technique and stuff down. So he’s gonna be like, (Javon) I see a lot of Javon in Zacch.” (VIEW ARTICLE)
  9. USC freshman tailback Kevin Harris making his mark early on in fall practice August 08, 2019 Freshman tailback Kevin Harris, is pushing the other players. Brown had this to say. “In the offseason, we’ve been pairing him at times with other guys in the room because he’s kind of a workout warrior and he makes those guys work out harder, You’re talking about a guy you know can squat about 600 pounds and you know 40 inch vertical whatever he did in summertime. It’s really impressive numbers.” The goal is to make sure those aren’t just weight room stats and actually translate functionally to the field. The 5-foot-10, 225 pound back slimmed down since the spring, getting the payoff of a college weight program. He had teammates raving in the spring, complimenting his power and will, and Brown echoed some of that early in August camp. “Kevin’s a super talented young player,” Brown said. “Really smart football player as well as he works his butt off.” That work ethic has him paired with others in the weight room. Asked if that is unusual for someone so young, Brown said the key factor was a level of confidence the staff has in a player. Harris ran for 1,556 yards and 22 touchdowns as a senior, finishing as the sixth-leading rusher in the state of Georgia. He’s definitely a power back, but the coaching staff spoke well of his speed at every turn. The question for Harris short term will be opportunity. South Carolina’s running backs room is crowded with veterans. Clemson transfer Tavien Feaster joined for the start of camp. Veterans Rico Dowdle (nearly 1,700 career yards) and Mon Denson are there, as is A.J. Turner, who for the moment is playing defensive back. That’s a lot for a first-year player to try to overcome, no matter how strong or successful he is. But there’s another factor boosting his case: a confidence in how well he knows the offense that borders on mastering it. He put in his work in spring and since then, and it means the staff in turn has that confidence in him if and when he makes it on the field. “Obviously the more time you have, the more meetings you’ve been in, the more walkthroughs, more practices, he knows what to do now,” Brown said. “He knows the offense and the mistakes are, you know, few and far between. I think at this point as much as we (put in) in springtime. three or four times in the summer going over installs, one two and three again, he should have the offense mastered by now. So I would say just the confidence, the level of play to relax and let his competition step up and play. It’s been good for him.”
  10. Sizzling steaks or homemade burgers: How the Gamecocks are learning to cook August 06, 2019 .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%} The first things that hits you while walking to this particular corner of South Carolina’s football operations building: the noise and the smells. The music is loud, but this isn’t a workout. The scent of seasoning permeates. Meat sizzles on grills and in pans. There are vegetables, too, and one Gamecock is trying his hand at preparing rice. Players stand around a kitchen island next to the team’s nutrition station. Most are working with a burner or a grill; some are cutting a steak, preparing a burger, pounding in some spice or working in oil or butter. (VIEW ARTICLE) THE STATE
  11. Marcus Lattimore leads latest South Carolina Hall of Fame class July 30, 2019 Marcus Lattimore left perhaps a larger mark on the University of South Carolina as an off-field presence as he did playing for Steve Spurrier’s football team. He’ll be honored for all of it with the title of hall of famer. Lattimore is one of nine athletes elected to the University of South Carolina Athletics Hall of Fame for the next class the school announced Tuesday. He brings the total to 187 members of the hall. Marcus Lattimore Bio Marcus Lattimore - Football (2010-12) - Despite an abbreviated career due to injury, Marcus Lattimore ranks sixth on the school’s all-time rushing list with 2,677 yards, and owns the school record for both rushing touchdowns (38) and touchdowns scored (41). His best season came as a freshman in 2010 when he rushed for 1,197 yards while being a unanimous selection as a Freshman All-American. He was a fourth-round pick by the San Francisco 49ers in the 2013 NFL Draft.
  12. Ops Facility has been ‘shot in the arm’ for Gamecocks July 20, 2019 When South Carolina opened the doors to its $50 million football operations facility in January most of the talk was about how it would impact the football program in the future. It’s a difference maker in recruiting and head coach Will Muschamp has stated how it's an investment people can see rather than be told about. Before the future becomes the present, there is the present to talk about too. The current Gamecocks football team, the one preparing for the 2019 season has resided in the Long Family Football Operations Center for eight months now. They used it for winter workouts, spring camp and most recently the summer strength and conditioning program. Now days away from the start to preseason camp, reviews on the building are as expected.

  13. The rowdiest fans in the SEC? Kentucky receiver Lynn Bowden shares his take July 19, 2019 All fans love to claim their fan base is the rowdies bunch of faithful followers in the country but it’s one thing to judge a crowd when you are in it and another thing to judge it when the crowd is coming at you. Considering every player in the Southeastern Conference that has made a road trip at least once in his playing career has had to deal with road fans, there may not be anyone better to ask about the impact fans have on the game. During the latest SEC Media Days, one Florida player was asked to give his opinion on the rowdiest fans in the SEC. (VIEW ARTICLE) Saturdays down south
  14. Stephon Gilmore share's his opinion on how should the Gamecocks use its young corners per tweeter July 16, 2019 They’ve also caught the eye of a Gamecock great in NFL All-Pro Stephon Gilmore, who took to Twitter on Monday night to offer coach Will Muschamp and defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson some advice on how to properly utilize Horn and Mukuamu in 2019. The former All-SEC star likes how Horn and Mukuamu, both tall, physical players match up with just about anyone and encouraged Muschamp to “play press all game and send that rush,” promising no receivers outside would get open while “7 and 24” are on them.
  15. Gamecock commit Luke Doty becomes USC’s second consecutive Elite 11 quarterback July 04, 2019 South Carolina QB commit Luke Doty continues to see his stock rise in the class of 2020, earning Elite 11 status at the quarterback camp in Texas on Wednesday. In Day 2 rankings released by the Elite 11, Doty, a Myrtle Beach native, checked in at No. 4. After Day 3, he slipped to No. 7, then No. 10 after Day 4. Doty is the program’s second Elite 11 passer in a row, joining Ryan Hilinski.

Doty is currently the No. 84 recruit in the 2020 class and the No. 4 dual-threat passer.
  16. JULY 1, 2019 by CHRIS | THE SPURS UP SHOW Here Are The Top Candidates To Replace Deebo Samuel As The Gamecocks Go-To Playmaker In 2019 62 catches. 882 yards. 11 touchdown receptions. One KOR for a touchdown. One fumble recovery for a touchdown. That is what South Carolina will look to replace when it takes the field in 2019. Arguably one of the biggest question marks in my mind heading into this fall, who (if anyone) on the Gamecocks roster can replace the playmaking ability Samuel possessed? With Deebo’s departure, a new name will need to emerge to assure a productive year for the USC offense and team as a whole. So, who are the top candidates that could fill in the shoes of the departed NFL Draft pick and current San Francisco 49er? Candidates WR Bryan Edwards Edwards should take over as Jake Bentley’s number one target in 2019 and looks to break a few records doing so. The senior needs just 8 touchdown receptions, 814 yards receiving and just 45 receptions to set the all-time records for each respectively. Bryan is another great big bodied wide receiver, showing the ability throughout his career to go up and over defenders and make tough catches. However, he enters 2019 for the first time ever as the Gamecocks true #1 target out wide. With Samuel’s departure, Edwards could be set up for a monster year in garnet and black. WR Shi Smith As far as style of play, Smith probably relates to Deebo more than anyone else I’ll mention on this list. Shi has shown a true playmaking type ability during his time in Columbia, amassing over 1,000 yards receiving and seven touchdowns during his first two seasons. It could be argued that Smith has been the most underrated and arguably underused member of the receivers corps since he arrived on campus. While there have been flashes, does Smith have what it takes to step into a new role as the go-to guy for USC? TE Kiel Pollard You might be asking yourself: how can a guy who has just 17 career receptions be on this list? While it’s unlikely Pollard could TOTALLY carry the load for this USC offense, he showed flashes a year ago just truly how explosive he could be. Kiel hauled in his first two touchdown catches of his career a season ago and should get many more reps with the departures of both Jacob August and K.C. Crosby. Watching Pollard in the spring game, it’s clear to me that South Carolina absolutely needs to find a way to get the ball in his hands as much as possible this season. RB Rico Dowdle For all the grief I’ve given the South Carolina running backs group this off-season, Rico Dowdle deserves to be at least included on this list. The question is simply this: can Dowdle stay healthy and return to his freshman year form? He was outstanding in 2016 for Carolina, leading the team with 764 rushing yards and 7 touchdowns in just nine games played. Consistency has been his biggest issue, which has in turn led to a very inconsistent rushing attack for USC. Could this be the year Rico finally breaks through and turns into the gamebreaking type running back we all thought he could be as a freshman? Verdict: WR Shi Smith Shi Smith simply checks all the boxes when it comes to being a true “playmaker” in this Carolina offense. As previously mentioned, he’s the most similar to Samuel in regards to his measurables: size, speed, agility, vision, etc. Good things seemed to always happen a year ago when Smith got the ball in his hands and I expect more of the same this year. I fully expect Bryan Edwards to hold every single South Carolina receiving record when 2019 concludes. However, don’t be surprised if it’s Shi Smith we are talking about as the true go-to guy on this South Carolina offense and team.
  17. Paul Finebaum assesses Gamecocks, fan hatred for Clemson July 01, 2019 Like most national analysts pontificating on South Carolina's expected challenges during the 2019 season, ESPN's Paul Finebaum is holding on to what little stock he has left in Will Muschamp. Facing a schedule loaded with elite competition, the Gamecocks won't get a sense of finality for Muschamp's future and the program's trajectory until after the approaching campaign, Finebaum says. "I think they should (be better),” Finebaum said during Monday's appearance on WJOX-FM's The Roundtable. "I look at a couple games last year, the first being Georgia. Expectations were through the roof in Columbia that day, Gamecock fans talking trash then they got ran over. And (then) they just laid such an egg in the bowl game and I know Virginia is pretty good, expected to win what ever stupid division that will get massacred by Clemson in the ACC Championship Game, but there’s no excuse for being shutout 28-0 in a game an hour and a half from your campus.

  18. Jake Bentley wins throwing competition at Manning Passing Academy June 30, 2019, | GCF Staff Report South Carolina fans are hoping QB Jake Bentley can take a big step forward this summer and be the star quarterback he was supposed to be when he came to Columbia. On Saturday at the Manning Passing Academy, Bentley showed that he has been making some improvements. Bentley beat out some other big-name quarterbacks Naturally, this wasn’t exactly against live competition, so Bentley still has some work to do when the pads are on this fall. A good sign for the rising senior, and should help with his confidence as Week 1 draws closer and closer.

  21. Newest Gamecock excited to face his brother at Clemson, if the NCAA allows June 23, 2019 When transfer tight end Nick Muse picked South Carolina football as his transfer destination, he added a little something to the family dynamic. Siblings on opposite sides of one of college football’s fiercest rivalries. Nick’s brother Tanner is an All-ACC safety for Clemson. He’s entering his fifth year on campus and his third year starting. And if the NCAA allows, the 2019 regular season could end with Muse covering Muse in Williams-Brice Stadium. “It’s exciting,” Nick Muse said. “Hopefully I’ll be eligible this year. We’ve got to do the waiver to get me eligible. But it’s exciting man. You always dream of playing big-time ball on Saturdays or Sundays with your brother. Playing against him is just about the same thing.” That waiver might be the hold up. The NCAA has been capricious with them to say the least. The most recent examples have been Tate Martell getting eligible at Miami immediately (citing issues with Urban Meyer’s coaching staff), while Illinois transfer Luke Ford was denied (he has a grandfather who is sick but doesn’t live close enough to factor in for the NCAA).
