COLUMBIA: Gamecocks build on 11-win seasons | Rock Hill Herald Online

"But after two season of it, you want more," Shaw said. "You get a little taste of it and you want more."

Quoth the Shaven, "Ever more."

Add this to the list of things that make me think: "Shiza! I didn't know I should be worrying about this?!" Also, took me a good minute to figure out what it was looking at in this picture.

Chiefs kicker back in Gamecock country for offseason | ABC News 4
I take issue with the opening sentence of this piece. I had forgotten that Succop will was ever given the ignominious title of Mr. Irrelevant. I think most of us remember him for his kicking prowess and, failing that, the sound of one's own girlfriend swooning audibly from the stands when he took the field.

"Gamecock great Ryan Succop will always be known as Mr. Irrelevant, but the final pick of the 2009 NFL draft is far from irrelevant."


Gamecock pitcher Koumas to miss 2014 season :

Koumas has been largely absent from the field for the Gamecocks after an impressive freshman campaign. Hopefully he'll get his arm right and be better than ever.

Gamecocks picked up a verbal pledge from 2015 OF Danny Blair

"The 2015 recruiting cycle is starting to kick into high gear for the baseball program and South Carolina landed one of its top targets on Tuesday night when outfielder Danny Blair (Bel Air, Md./Gilman) committed."

Former Gamecock Smoak Homers In Seattle Win | ABC Columbia
Looks like Smoak is finally heating up. No pun intended (seriously).

"Joe Saunders pitched seven efficient innings and Nick Franklin and Justin Smoak each homered to lift the Seattle Mariners to a 3-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday."

Former Gamecock Tyler Webb happy to be back in South Carolina | The Post and Courier
OK, now I'm just curious. Do new editors editors put up a "Happy to be in South Carolina" story every week and send some ambitious cub reporter to the task of bringing that story to the people? Are people generally NOT happy to be back in South Carolina?


Gamecock signee Dambaugh qualifies for U.S. Women’s Amateur | ABC News 4

"South Carolina women's golf signee Katelyn Dambaugh qualified for the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship on Monday with a tie for third finish in a sectional qualifier at Kiawah Island Golf Resort's Cougar Point."


David Cloninger joins GoGamecocks, The State | Go Gamecocks
I'm not sure what to make of this move. Perhaps this means a more overtly pro-Gamecock crowd at The State. But the only thing I can think about right now is if the picture Cloninger uses for his twitter account, and featured here, is the only one known to exist in all of social media. Does David Cloninger actually exist? Is David Cloninger a hoax perpetrated on Gamecocks and Braves fans alike?

South Carolina athletic director Tanner most happy Gamecock athletics didn't slow in 1st year | The Republic
An interview with Ray Tanner. Pretty good stuff here, for the off-season.

"Donations surpassed $25 million in 2012, in part because of plays like Clowney's hit in the Outback Bowl when he dislodged Michigan runner Vincent Smith's helmet and made a one-handed fumble recovery to help the Gamecocks to a 33-28 victory."

Gamecocks Pinterest Board | Pinterest
Well this is certainly a first for The Morning Feed. Let it not be said that we hear at GABA don't heed the call of our lady readers. For those of you with girlfriends/wives/estrogen in your home, you're probably well-acquanted with the working of Pinterest. For those of you who are oblivious to this phenomenon, think of it like Facebook for arts and crafts. The first time I've seen a Gamecocks-themed board warrants inclusion in the Morning Feed.

Whitstable Way We Were with Brian Baker: The Gamecock | Whitstable People

"Ernest Stroud, who was the landlord of the Royal Native pub but also dredged oysters, injured himself in 1905 swinging up bags of oysters from his old boat and was hospitalised, being told that he would never again be able to carry out such physical work. Undeterred, in December 1906 he placed an order with Collar Brothers, boat-builders in Island Wall, to build him a new yawl to his exact specifications, to be called the 'Gamecock'."

Ernest Stroud: We salute you!
