Midseason Report: South Carolina Stands at the Precipice and ... | Team Speed Kills
These are the questions on all of our minds.

What's it going to be, South Carolina? Will it be a season with a memory, or a season full of memories? That's the only question left to answer.

Report card: Vanderbilt | Spur of the Moment
This is true.

The offensive gameplan in the first half looked much like the second-half plan at Kentucky. That's to say it was putrid.

...

Setting up the blocked field goal was a fade call on third-and-4 from the 9 - when Maddox and USC had barreled down the field. That's a tough one to understand.

But so is this.

Reality is, South Carolina couldn't hop in a time machine Saturday and beat both Kentucky and Vanderbilt. While the loss at UK is still tough to let go of, the Gamecocks finally found a way to get the one win it could Saturday. So, give them credit for that.

A win is a win. Time to move on.

It's the little things in life. But in this case, a conference win is considered a big thing. So I guess it's really the big things in life.

It wasn't pretty, but it was exactly what South Carolina needed. It was a conference road win, so the margin of victory isn't important.

Concensus is we're #17 in the country. Not sure about that after last Saturday's performance. But the Recent Unpleasantness continues...

Ron Morris with a nice piece that sheds some light on the dynamic amongst our running back corps. I'll refrain from posting the resignation petition because, well, I don't feel like being a jerk today. Keep up the good work, Ron!

"Kenny just couldn’t get a hole," Spurrier said of Miles. "We didn’t block very well when Kenny was in there. It just seems like he cut right into them or couldn’t shake one. I feel bad for Kenny. But when Brian got his chance he was making things happen."

I have to admit, I do feel a little bit bad for Vanderbilt sometimes. But not as bad as I would feel had we lost to Vanderbilt.

WOMEN'S SOCCER

Brittiny Rhoades Puts No. 18 Gamecocks Into SEC Title Game | Gamecocks Online
The score really doesn't indicate the level of domination our ladies displayed in this game.

Senior defender Brittiny Rhoades scored her first career goal in the 80th minute to propel No. 18 South Carolina to a 1-0 win against LSU Sunday and ensure that Friday's home finale against Florida will serve as the SEC regular season title match. The Gamecocks (14-3-2, 8-1-1 SEC) and Gators have the same conference record heading into their televised game this coming Friday at 7 p.m. at Stone Stadium.

 

MEN'S SOCCER

No. 18 South Carolina Drops C-USA Contest At Marshall | Gamecocks Online
Unacceptable. A 4-1 loss to drop this team to 2-2-1 in conference play? We're one of two SEC teams to have men's soccer program. We probably have the best facilities in the conference. We should be at the top of CUSA every year. If the best Coach Berson can do is a win over Clemson every year, we need to find a new coach.

The 18th-ranked South Carolina men's soccer team suffered a 4-1 loss on the road at Marshall in Conference USA play on Saturday at Sam Hood Field. Senior defender Will Traynor scored his fifth goal of the season in the match. With the loss, South Carolina falls to 7-5-2, 2-2-1 C-USA, while Marshall improves to 8-4-4, 3-3-1 in league contests.
