Gamecock Football

Post & Courier: USC’s memorable run: Gamecocks’ defense helped spark school’s first 11-win season.

Post & Courier: Spurrier: Another USC goal reached .

Bleacher Report: Finishing in Top 10 Puts Final Stamp on Amazing Season.

The State: Roland named to Parade All-America team. Auburn commitment DE Gimel President from Mt. Pleasant also made the team.

LOHD: Flounder gives us the skinny on one of the handful of guys left on our recruiting board - Chris Moody of McDonough, Georgia. We want him as a defensive back.

Kornblut: Meanwhile, it looks like coveted Atlanta RB Mike Davis is planning to push back his announcement to NSD; I think he is waiting to see whether Tarboro, North Carolina RB Todd Gurley chooses UGA, UNC or Clemson, before Davis makes his move; the news on Gaffney WR Quinshard Davis is that Coach Shawn Elliot has confirmed he has a "commitable offer - i.e., no gray-shirt.

ESPN: Mark Schlabach gives us his 2012 Way-Too-Early Top 25. I'm not offended that he puts South Carolina as # 10, or UGA as # 6 (I always like the Peach State Pups to be ranked ahead of us at the beginning of the year - it gives them a nice sense of entitlement and complacency) but I'm surprised he puts the Razorbacks at # 14 with Wilson and Davis returning. Southern Cal at # 2 is silly; Clemmy looks like a solid # 22.

National Football Authority: 2012 NFL Mock Draft: South Carolina Gamecocks WR Alshon Jeffery Might be a Boom or Bust Pick (Video) . A bit stale from Monday, but CBS Draft Guru Rob Rang can go pound sand when he says that Alshon is "overrated".


The State: Vanderbilt shoots down USC effort. Twelve first half points - 12. Count 'em: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12. That's it. 19.2% shooting in the half. 0-from-8 from the arc. Don't let the final score fool you; the 'Dores were leading by 24 with four minutes left, and we were able to get the lead down to 10 when it was already all but academic. More to come on this game later, of course.

Daily Gamecock: Men's hoops falls to Vanderbilt 57-67.

Gamecock Anthem: Cold shooting dooms USC. You don't say?

Loose Feed

TRC: It's time for another edition of The Buck Sweep - BCS Hangover Edition.

Mr. SEC: No Permanent Cross-Divisional Rivals In The SEC? John Pennington is not a fan of the idea.; he thinks that nine games is inevitable too. The jury is still out for me on the cross-divisional rivals, but I agree that it's very likely we'll go to nine league games. I plan to write on this a bit later.

NFL Sports: Vols WR transferring to Louisville. Another story from Knoxville that makes you wonder how Derek Dooley is holding things together on Rocky Top.

Bleacher Report: Tennessee Vols Defensive Coordinator Search: What's Taking so Long?

Kentucky Joker Phillips' seat will still be hot next season.

CBS Sports: Bobby Hebert harangues Les at post-BCSCG presser. What can one do but shake one's head and say: "Louisiana"?

Tulsa World: Aggies, Tigers likely to disappear into SEC hype machine. Columnist throws down a gauntlet to OU and Ok State, while simultaneously saying "goodbye to bad rubbish" to two former Big XII teams, all within the pretext of talking about the SEC. Simply mah-velous.
