South Carolina Gamecocks Football Field Report: Pirate Edition | Leftover Hot Dog
LOHD does a good job of breaking down the ECU game for you, but I'm not sure I can stomach re-living the first half of that game.

Steve Spurrier's Weekly Press Conference Quotes | Gamecocks online
Spurrier had this to say about Connor Shaw:

He's fine. He saw what happened. We watched the tape. He could've done this and that. Obviously the two long balls were close (to Jason Barnes and Alshon Jeffery) ... some other plays he could've done better. He understands Stephen (Garcia) played a lot better than he did. That's the way it was. Connor played better than Stephen in the preseason. We opened it up and it worked its way out. We didn't say Connor would be the starter for the year. We said each would play a quarter and we'll go from there.

Antonio Allen gets a helmet sticker but no SEC player of the week honors.

East Carolina Report Card | The Post and Courier
Can't say I agree with any of these grades except for the overall "C+." He gives the offense a "C" citing the fact that defense and special teams each scored 7 of the 56 points and the fact that they often had the short field. Then he turns around and gives the defense a "C" even though they, too, often had the short field. He gives special teams an "A" despite the punting situation and the muffed catches. The coaching might have been suspect, but it certainly didn't deserve an "F". I mean, we did win 56-37 for goodness' sake. More of the same from Andrew Miller if you ask me. Oh well.

@ry_hudson: A video, obviously. | Twitter
I guess I should weigh in on the Maryland uniforms -- everyone else has. As you might have guessed, I hated them. But I didn't hate them because they were ugly. I hated them because they were such a poor execution of what could have been elegant and awesome. The Maryland flag is one of the coolest in the nation, but instead of paying a tasteful homage to the Maryland banner, Under Armour decided it had to beat us over the head with abrasive "EXTREMEness." Shame on Under Armour for being more Nike than Nike and shame on Maryland for letting them. (H/T: Campus Union)

Men's Soccer Suffers Loss At Clemson | Gamecocks Online
Mark Berson's squad is still winless three games into the season. Soccer can be a fickle game, and things are often not as bad as they seem, but we're getting close to sounding the alarm here. The team has enjoyed success against Clemson the past 4 years and even won Conference USA last year, but the Gamecocks have not really done much under Berson since the early 90s. Call it a sign of the times, but I expect more.

Men's Soccer Earns 2-1 Win Over No. 21 Charlotte In Home Opener | Gamecocks Online

Listen, I'm not a huge swimming fan or anything, but my understanding is that McGee Moody has been making strides as head coach of the Gamecocks. Give credit where it is due, folks.
