Gamecocks Football Recruiting: Kelvin Rainey Commits | LOHD

Flounder reports on Carolina's successful recruitment of Kelvin Rainey. Rainey is a four-star prospect who is considered one of the nation's top TEs. Rainey's commitment has been lost in the swirl of attention the baseball team has been receiving, but make no mistake: this is big deal for Carolina football.

Matt Hinton looks at the aftermath of the finding of negligence and wrongful death in the case against George O'Leary's treatment of late UCF runningback Ereck Plancher. UCF intends to appeal the decision, meaning we'll probably have to wait a little longer to learn of the ultimate outcome of this case, as well as of the fate of O'Leary, whose job will be in jeopardy if the appeal doesn't hold up.
