AJ!: Will he hear his name called tonight?

Post & Courier: Coach’s advice helped South Carolina defensive end Melvin Ingram become a first-round NFL draft pick.

Spur of the Moment Blog: Darryl has been busy breaking down USC's top four NFL draft propects -- Ingram, Gilmore, Jeffery and Allen.

Bradenton (FL) Herald: South Carolina star Melvin Ingram's future in the NFL looks sunny by Josh Kendall - yes, the USC beat reporter from The State. The GoGamecocks paywall is a disgrace, since they hide the ball from the hometown fans, but give content away to McClatchy sister papers for gratis.

O'Burg Times & Democrat: Where will Alshon Jeffery end up?

Anderson Independent-Mail: Trio of Gamecocks eye first round pick.

This Feed's just getting started; plenty more after The Jump. Comments are like tips - always appreciated.

The Sports Network: Final 2012 NFL mock draft. I will be happy not to look at another 'mock' draft after this weekend.

Bleacher Report: Melvin Ingram: Comparing NFL Draft Pick to LaMarr Woodley; turning our attention back to 2012 - SEC Football Top 150 Players: No. 127, A.J. Cann, South Carolina OL. Some nice recognition for A.J.

Saturday Down South: Is The East Georgia’s To Lose? That's the way Birmingham set it up.

Spurs Up Blog: Farmer's Market Renovations Update (Photos). I wonder if any other southern university has been forced to spend as much money undoing a terrible mistake from the turn-of-the-last-century; i.e., playing games at the Fair Grounds (both the old and the new) primarily because of our rivalry with Clemson. A Tiger friend wondered aloud recently whether USC's football history would have been different had Carolina built an on-campus stadium, I wonder if he has a point.

Ron Morris: The latest dispatch from the Negative Guy is surprisingly positive - First-round talent means SEC victories for USC.

Sportstalkgolive: SportsTalk Rewind 4.25.11: Queen City Prep’s Tony Taylor (AUDIO). One of our new hoops recruits.

Gamecock Central: In review: Hoops recruiting. A great freebie - don't miss it. Also, GC's David Cloninger files the second installment of his retrospective on the women's hoops team - WBB: Wrapping up, Part II.

Matt Conolly: Gamecocks heating up. That's the good news. But the bad news - from Sportstalkgolive - is that the USC pitching rotation takes a major hit with injury to Colby Holmes.

Leftover Hotdog: Know Your Baseball Enemy: Alabama Crimson Tide. Is woeful Bama starting to heat up at just the wrong time (taking 2-of-3 from Vandy)? Or is just that Vandy is even more woeful? (And who'd have thunk that at the beginning of spring training?)

Cocky Country: Yardcocks Look To Keep Things Rolling Against Bama.

Dixie Fried Sports: Matt Barber floats an interesting idea for a College Footbal Jamboree. Like it?

Dr. Saturday: "Excuse me while I throw up in my mouth a little bit." But what would Jared say?
