Leftover Hotdog: If you see this man at Williams-Brice Stadium, you are authorized to use deadly force to protect the Clemmy gene pool from further degradation (No, no, no - not Aldrick - this guy -->) You Stay Classy, Clemson. Epic doofus-dom. I would have given anything for a bunch of AU guys to have caught him and beat him to a pulp. Or - better yet - watch him get Tasered by some Jordan-Hare security rent-a-cops. Remember that when any UGA fans sneer that Clemson is their "true rival" from the Palmetto State, this is the sort of thing they're signing onto; even the most inveterate Aubie-hater or Clems-o-phile Athenian should be embarrassed by this effort. I am embarrassed as a South Carolinian. I had to turn it off after awhile, it was so bad.
Gamecock Anthem: Looks like Scout has brought in our pal Adam Garrett to help plug some personnel losses - great hire! Here is one of his first free pieces on GA: Breaking down the depth chart: Special Teams. Maybe this explains why things have been so quiet at Life of a Gamecock.

GoUpstate.com: Cornerback Auguste returns to practice for Gamecocks.
Palmetto Recruiting: Carrera good to go with USC. Good news for Coach Martin - for a bit there it looked like the 6'6" F from Venezuela wouldn't follow through on his pledge to Carolina.
Post & Courier: You may have missed this over the summer (I did), but RS Sophomore Carlton Geathers injured his knee in late July and will be expected to miss six months - no sooner than late January. Since he redshirted during his freshman year, if he doesn't play this season, then he will have to apply for a medical waiver to recapture the lost year of eligibility. I think a lot of us were hoping that the physically imposing F from Georgetown would come into his own under Martin's system. Hope you get well soon, big guy!

Chris Low: SEC will continue to reign supreme.
