The HBC: Lattimore number 1, Miles number 2.

TFP - You know it's hard to believe.

Gamecock Football

Post & Courier: With South Carolina’s opener two weeks away, Marcus Lattimore gets warm welcome at scrimmage. Looks like we've officially settled on 1-2 RB punch of Lattimore and Kenny Miles; I'm happy with that - Carson, Wilds and Davis are all young and will get some carries this year, but Lattimore and Miles can put the team on their backs. As for Lattimore being "strong" - I'm not surprised that he looked good; with his proven work ethic, I never worried for a minute that his rehab would be behind pace. Also - 8,000 in attendance for a mid-week, short-notice scrimmage is pretty impressive, I must say. I do hope Wilds' ankle sprain isn't too severe. Good to see Joshua Blue battling for p.t. at the RB slot.

Spur of the Moment: Darryl has some extra notes on the scrimmage over at his blog.

Greenville News: Marcus Lattimore returns to USC healthy, mature. I don't quite get Wright's "mature" angle - Lattimore was always one the most mature underclassmen I ever saw wear the Garnet and Black. Perhaps "even more mature" would have been a better headline.

Love the music; Sly Stallone's harangue, though, is a little incongruous - but I'll let it slide this time. (Ed. - come on dude, it's Rocky). Yeah - but it's from Rocky VI. I stopped watching after Clubber Lang got his.
