Spring Game

Stephen Garcia Plays Well. Unsurprisingly, this was the big news of the day. Garcia made a number of good throws, threw for a high percentage, and threw no INTs. With Steve Spurrier as our coach and Garcia being, well, Garcia, I hesitate to say that this year won't feature anymore QB controversies, but it certainly appears that Garcia has a tighter grip on the spot than any other QB here at Carolina has had during the Spurrier years.

Dion LeCorn Suffers Leg Injury. I couldn't really get a good idea on exactly what happened from the reports, but it appears that LeCorn suffered a small leg-bone fracture. If so, he could hopefully be back in the fall. The injury actually happened on the last play of the scrimmage. Doh!

Running Game Plays Well and We're Going to Miss Succop. The new blocking schemes and hard work from the linemen appears to have paid off with the running game. Jarvis Giles and Kenny Miles both had big days. Brian Maddox, who will likely be the starter at the beginning of the year, played OK but only saw limited action.

As for the kicking game, Adam Yates and Spencer Lanning combined for 1-3, with the only made kick coming from 27 yards out. Not good.

Suspended Ladi Ajiboye and C. C. Whitlock Making Strides; Stephon Gilmore Plays Both Ways. Apparently Ajiboye and Whitlock are doing better in the classroom.

Gilmore, who Spurrier promised to get in at QB with some special packages, did complete a pass and make a seven-yard run in addition to playing well on defense. This guy is going to be good.

Connor Shaw Commits. Finally, QB prospect Shaw committed.

UPDATE: Joe Person on Spring Awards.


Gamecocks Take Down Rebels. We're going for the sweep today. This series win at a good Ole Miss team couldn't have come at a better time, and a sweep today would be huge.
