Good piece from LOHD on the significance of this turn of events to the Gamecocks. In short, it's good for us. Of course, it's good for everybody that this cheater is gone.
Great preview from Kyle.
Lots of Carolina previewage at TSK this week.
You never know what Steve Spurrier will say next. The featured speaker at the Chattanooga Sports and Events Committee's fundraising dinner Saturday night at the Chattanoogan, the South Carolina football coach actually had a few kind words for former Tennessee coach Phil Fulmer.
Great SBN preview. Here's a money quote:
I'm not saying South Carolina should be considered the far-and-away favorite for the SEC East, not with their schedule. But they absolutely have the best combination of talent and worthwhile experience in the division. And I would be willing to say that if this exact team were wearing Florida Gator helmets this fall, they would be considered national title contenders. But stigma dies hard, and even though South Carolina took a giant step forward last season with their first East title, they probably still have quite a bit to prove.
Most of the college sports fans who read Michael Rosenberg's humble suggestion to the NCAA probably had a similar gut reaction. How could you? What about amateurism? What about the purity of college sports?
