Gamecocks Mulling Options at TE |
David Cloninger takes a look at USC's options at tight end should Patrick DiMarco remain out due to injury and Weslye Saunders become sidelined by the NCAA.

Saunders to sit out practice this week | The Post and Courier
And speaking of Weslye Saunders, it's looking more and more like he may not be available come September 2.

... Saunders, who has been in the crosshairs of an NCAA investigation this summer, will not practice with the team this week because of personal reasons, a source said this afternoon. The source declined to elaborate beyond that. The Gamecocks are scheduled to practice this evening, and coach Steve Spurrier will likely comment afterward on Saunders.

Not content to sit on the sidelines during the debate about whether he will sit on the sidelines, Saunders appears to be taking matters into his own hands. Not in a good way, either.

Saunders suspended indefinitely | GoGamecocks
And Joe Person brings us full-circle. Saunders' suspension apparently has nothing to do with the NCAA mess, but is rather due to an ambiguous violation of team roles. Saunders just might be buying himself a "one-way ticket to Palooka-ville."

Cory Boyd breaks through in Canada | Leftover Hot Dog
Everyone's favorite all-purpose back is having himself quite the year in the CFL. In his rookie season with the Toronto Argonauts he is leading the league in rushing with 792 yards and was named offensive player of the week for week 6. Congratulations to Cory, and thanks to LOHD for keeping us posted.

Safeties look to create more turnovers in 2010 | The Daily Gamecock
USC's safeties are looking to improve upon their interception total from last year. Sounds familiar.

"We want to lead the country in interceptions. That’s one thing," D.J. Swearinger said. "We want to have the top pass defense in the league, and lead the country in interceptions this year."

Those are some lofty goals. Good luck to you, young man.


Recruiting: Gamecocks get two for baseball | GoGamecocks
Ray Tanner picked up commitments from two of the state's top baseball prospects. Reid Moman is a left-handed hitter who batted .412 and scored eight runs in the recent Big League World Series. He'll be part of the 2011 class. Pitcher/ third baseman Jamie Callahan committed for 2012.

Major League Gamecocks |
A look at former Gamecocks playing major league baseball. Steven Tolleson, who got called up to Oakland two weeks ago, is hitting .300. Everyone else? Meh.
