WaPo: South Carolina women’s hoop team picked to win SEC. "South Carolina coach Dawn Staley knows the work it took to reach the top of the Southeastern Conference. She understands it’ll be an even greater challenge for the defending SEC champs to stay there."
Gamecock Central: Tiffany Mitchell and Aleighsa Welch join Coach Dawn Staley at SEC Media days. Mitchell and Welch are pre-season first team All SEC. Plus - Defense prepares for tough Auburn test.
The State: Read all about it: USC last defeated Auburn in 1933. We are due!
Phil Kornblut: We may have lost Greenwood native Davon Durant of Hutchinson JC to the Sun Devils, but we still appear to be strong with his teammate and fellow Greenwoodian DE Marquavius Lewis - though he is still getting calls. Holding the 2015 class has got to be priority number 1 for the staff. Maybe LB position coach Kirk Botkin can reel Durant back in the boat. Who knows. We are getting killed by Arizona State having more favorable JC transfer rules in the Pac-12 than we have in the SEC. By the way, check out how many big-time football players have come out of Greenwood. Plus - USC practice report: Jobs still up for grabs on defense.

Cola Daily: Ouch. Volleyball: Gamecocks fall 3-0 to Coastal Carolina. This sweep was our first ever loss to Coastal and comes after our road defeat at A&M. Scott Swanson's team is 13-7 on the season. Double ouch - Gamecocks lose to N.C. State in overtime 2-1 at the Graveyard. Mark Berson's soccer squad is now a disappointing 7-7. I don't understand why these two units continue to underwhelm.
Team Speed Kills: Brandon Larrabee weighs in on the Spurrier-to-UF chatter - No, Steve Spurrier Isn't Going Back to Florida When Will Muschamp Is Fired. Here's Why. Brandon has a screenshot of Spurrier's expression that is another keeper-for-the-ages.
Dr. Saturday: Curiously, while every major outlet agrees that the HBC absolutely nixed any thought of him going back to Gainesville - and used humor to do it - this Yahoo! writer thinks Steve Spurrier skirts around questions about the Florida job. I think she missed something in translation.
MrSEC: Florida A.D. Jeremy Foley Wisely Takes His Time With Will Muschamp. The HBC's name does not come up, but some good arguments against firing Muschamp now.
Saturday Down South: 5 coordinators who could lose their jobs. Is it fair to put Whammy on this list? My feeling is that the entire defensive staff will be retained another year, barring a Chernobyl-esque late-season meltdown in the Orange Crush. Plus - SEC Stadium Shots.
