Leftover Hotdog: South Carolina Football: Is Bruce Ellington Back? I sort of had a sneaking suspicion that Bruce wasn't completely done on the gridiron. Flounder also reports on Marcquis Roberts' torn ACL - that is a real shame for Marcquis and diminishes our depth at Spur/Safety.

The Daily Gamecock: Shaw studying Brees in offseason by Sports Editor Isabelle Kurshudyan. Also, in case you missed it, sports writer Kyle Heck did a great story last week on whether Number 31 will be wearing Garnet and Black in the fall - Return of Kenny Miles still uncertain. The amazing thing is that Miles won't say for sure whether he is coming back, but he's out doing spring drills with the team and being coached by Everette Sands. "'I don’t know why he would be out here practicing if he wasn’t staying,' sophomore quarterback Connor Shaw said." My sentiments exactly, Connor.
