Bleacher Report: Alex Roberts wants to know if South Carolina has Too Much Offensive Weaponry in 2012? He is joking, isn't he? Also, Flounder weighs in on the state of USC football recruiting in advance of next week's National Signing Day - Top Targets, Positional Needs and Prediction. I think he's too optimistic we'll get another commitment for 2012, but I would love to be proven wrong. Slides, slides, everywhere a slide.

Gamecock Basketball

Fox Sports South: Sloppy play leave Gamecocks winless in SEC. Darrin Horn: "We've just got to keep working to get better. No one wants to hear we're young, but it's true. The only way to change that is game action." Actually, the best way to change that would be not to run off gifted sophomores; now in his fourth season, Coach Horn is responsible for the roster and his recruits - if a kid busts, or is a bad fit for the system, it reflects as much on Horn as the player. We're "young" in large part because of personnel decisions that Horn has made since he arrived in Columbia.

SportsTalk: Darrin Horn on the Monday SEC teleconference (AUDIO). Carolina hosts Alabama at the Colonial Life Arena tomorrow night at 8:00 p.m.

Mr SEC: John Pennington thinks Six SEC Teams Have A Shot At The NCAA Tourney. Pssst - we ain't one of them. John does run down each team's RPI and strength-of-schedule ranks; ours are dismal.

For some strange reason I like our chances tomorrow. Darrin Horn is good for one otherwise inexplicable surprise victory a season, and it's not like the Tide are going to have a lot of respect for us. Plus, it's $1 hot dog night at the CLA, folks! (Ed. - That should really pack 'em in!). I kid! It looks like tomorrow will be extra family friendly - Sixth Annual Spurs & Saddles Set for Wednesday at the CLA - you can meet the equestrian team and take pics with the riders and horses.
