TDF - This indecision's bugging me.
Gamecock Central: David Cloninger posts Martin should return most of team. The good news is that Anthony Gill and Damontre Harris have expressly denied having requested a release. Yet. The bad news, however, is that both told Cloninger in so many words that they are weighing their options - which means it's still a possibility we could lose one or both of them. Apparently, neither appears to have talked to Coach Martin yet - and I have a good feeling that Martin will be able to convince them to stay. Let's hope so, at least.

Mr. SEC: John Pennington breaks down the SEC's dominance in the three main men's sports - SEC Looking To Continue Major Sports Dominance. With the 'Cats win last night, the SEC has garnered 12 titles out of a possible 21 since 2006; no other conference has more than two combined titles in these sports. We're truly living in one of the league's golden ages - and doing our bit, too, I might add.

The Daily Gamecock: The undergrads have some April Fool's Day Fake Edition fun. Check out the Steven Garcia mask on the last page (which NBC Sport's Ben Kercheval thinks is "creeptastic").
