2010 NCAA College Football Polls and Rankings for Week 4 - ESPN
The recent unpleasantness continues this week as Carolina moves up to #12 in the AP Poll and #15 in the USA Today/ Coaches Poll. STS is still fighting the good fight, somehow convincing themselves that Arkansas deserves to move up 4 spots after defeating the same opponent that was considered too weak to warrant USC's inclusion last week. Arkansas' most impressive other victory? Louisiana - Monroe. Meanwhile our other two victories came against a team that beat FBS opponent Kansas and a championship contender in the FCS. But hey, if we're never in the rankings then we can't fall out of 'em, right?

Also worth noting is Yahoo!'s mistake of sticking Southern Cal in our spot in the USA Today/ Coaches Poll. At first I thought they were finally referring to us as USC, but now I see they just screwed up.

What we learned in the SEC: Week 3 | ESPN

That smacking sound you’re hearing coming out of Columbia, S.C., is the Head Ball Coach licking his lips. It goes without saying that this is unequivocally his best chance to get to Atlanta and play for the SEC championship since he took the South Carolina job in 2005.

The "Relish and Chili Awards" for Gamecocks Week 3 Win | Leftover Hot Dog
The guys over at LOHD like their relish the same way they like their defensive stops: stone cold. And they like their chili the same way they like their offense: hot. It is with that in mind that they named their defensive and offensive players of the week Stephon Gilmore and Alshon Jeffery, respectively.

Checking In On South Carolina’s Recruits For 2011 | Saturday Down South
Still humming along. If we can pick up a few 4-star recruits in the coming months we should be fine (or 2-star Pat Dimarco types).
