TRC Weighs in on the Latest Stephen Garcia News | The Rubber Chickens
While buck and Tbone debate the various merits of Stephen Garcia's supposed New Year's Eve Eve behavior, I'm going to take a different viewpoint. I'm declaring shenanigans. There is no way this report has even a shred of credibility. For one thing, this is the same "news" outlet that tried to stir up a controversy about Wesley Saunders' dismissal from the team and claimed to have first-hand knowledge of a Nikki Haley affair. Fitsnews is the definition of yellow journalism. All they do is "report" rumors in a pathetic attempt to drive traffic.

You know how I know this is all garbage? Because Steve Spurrier is a disciplinarian. If he had knowledge of Steven Garcia doing these deeds, he probably would have kicked him off the team - not made him "sweat it out" on a treadmill. That's got to be the most ridiculous thing I've heard in 2011. This is the same Steve Spurrier we're talking about that was mad at Garcia for playing video games the night before the Outback bowl. Video-gaming is a pretty innocuous activity - even before its compared to a 6-way with a gaggle of co-eds. We're also talking about the same Spurrier that suspended Mike Davis for breaking into a refrigerator to get some Gatorade after a workout. There's no way Spurrier got wind of behavior like this and let Garcia "sweat it out." We would have heard about it by now.

SEC Baseball 2011 Preview: South Carolina Gamecocks | Team Speed Kills
Cocknfire previews the 2011 season for you defending baseball NATIONAL CHAMPIONS. I take issue with his assessment of whether we're going to the NCAAs, though. "Most likely?" I don't see our streak of consecutive post season appearances ending this year. It will end eventually, but not this year.

South Carolina and Clemson Begin a New Local TV Trend | Bleacher Report
I can only hope TV executives somewhere take notice of the author's point. I have often wondered why college baseball hasn't gotten play on the local stations. In a state like South Carolina, it's got to attract more viewers than some of the garbage on the airwaves now.

The Yard 'Cocks have looked pretty good early in the season so far. The rotation, which was a bit of a question mark coming into the season, has performed admirably. Clemson's three runs on Friday were all unearned.

Gamecocks Fall in SEC Tournament Quarterfinals | Gameccoks Online
Dawn Staley's crew lost handily against UGA on Friday. I have to think this pretty much kills any chance we had of breaking into the NCAAs.


Gamecocks Rally Falls Short Against Mississippi State, 60-58 | Gamecocks Online
Even the athletic department media scribes are ready for this basketball season to be over. They could barely muster more than a couple puny sentences to describe Saturday's "action."

South Carolina (14-15, 5-11) shot 23 of 64 (35.9 percent) from the field. Ravern Johnson scored 21 points on seven 3-pointers, Kodi Augustus added 15 and Mississippi State held on for a 60-58 victory over South Carolina on Saturday.
