You might recall an article we linked to yesterday here at the The Daily Feed about South Carolina's tradition of playing "Thus Spake Zarathustra." Well, fan of the blog, Chuck B, wrote me to assuage my confusion over the title of that fine piece. Let it never be said that Garnet & Black Attack doesn't appreciate user-generated content!
I emailed to chime in on the "Thus Spake Zarathustra" vs "Also Sprach Zarathustra" bit you posted. You are correct in that the English translation of that Strauss piece's title is Thus Spake Zarathustra. Also Sprach Zarathustra is the original German title; the German word also is a linguistic false friend to the English word also - they appear to be the same, though they have decidedly different meanings. German and English contain many such false friends: consider the German word Billion, which translates to the English word trillion (the English billion being Milliarde in German). Another more entertaining false friend is Präservativ, which reads (and sounds, when pronounced aloud) like something your Grandmother would use to make jam but, in reality, refers to condoms.Keep up the good work,Derek Dooley
The Derek Dooley reference was a nice touch. So there you have it, folks. Thanks to Chuck B for taking a moment out of his day to make us all a little smarter.
Steve Spurrier Weekly Press Conference Quotes & Videos | Gamecocks Online
Not sure I like this. I'm sort of a covert on this issue. Gamecock Man has convinced me that we're at our best when The HBC is calling the plays. Why mess with it? Of course, maybe Coach Elliot will finally make us commit to the run.
We had a bit of a community system working a little bit. I called a lot of them. I didn't call all of them, but we have a system there where we're all on the headset. It was a little different, but not a whole lot different. When we look for a run, Coach Elliott usually looks at what he thinks has the best chance and so forth. I think the coach who spends most of the time with the quarterback probably should be the play caller. G.A. (Mangus) was sort of the main guy there than the rest of us, which was a little different than we've been doing, but I like that because he talks to Stephen (Garcia) in between series.
But now, all of a sudden, with South Carolina poised to make history and the pathway to a first-ever SEC championship game wide open, Spurrier decides the play-calling duties will be more of a "community" effort.
I have to agree. Don't screw with success (I use that term loosely).
Thoughts on Spurrier and play-calling | Spur of the Moment
Travis Haney chimes in.
Something tells me you might not even notice who's calling plays with Lattimore in there. And, from what we were told, Lattimore will be a full go Saturday against Tennessee. He practiced Monday. Spurrier said he wasn't sure whether Lattimore or Brian Maddox would start Saturday. I'd bet on the former. If he's healthy, start and play him.
Lattimore to return for Gamecocks | ESPN
I wouldn't mind giving Maddox the symbolic start to make up for the Vanderbilt game. He deserves it.
There's a chance that senior Brian Maddox may start against Tennessee after rushing for a career-high 146 yards last week, but Lattimore won't have to wait long to get into the game.
