Hokepoints Previews South Carolina | mgoblog
I've heard a lot of great things about mgoblog. It's so niche that it appears to be written in another language at times, and I respect the hell out of that. Their first entry previewing South Carolina was spot-on. This one swings and misses a good bit in its assessment of USC's season but has some interesting insights - that is, if you can filter out the weird animosity the writer has for the Gamecocks' conference membership, which feels as awkward as those old SportsCenter segments with Sean Salisbury and John Clayton hurling schoolyard pejoratives at one another.

As far as I know, the Hokies haven't quite fired their offensive coordinator yet, but based on their performance this season (97th nationally in yards per play), such a move could certainly be in the offing.
