Brad Senkiw: 2014 offense could be the Gamecocks' best on paper.
John Whittle: Spurrier didn't see defensive struggles coming. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that part of what we pay him to see?
Palmetto Recruiting: Not so fast, Bubba. Even though we were his first offer and the longtime front-runner, Goose Creek DE Javon Kinlaw rates Gators number one right now.
"I like Florida a lot," Kinlaw said. "I'd been waiting on their offer a long time. It's just the intensity of their school. I can't wait to get down there to see what it's like. Coach Lawing really and truly believes I can be a defensive end."
It's Lawing we need to pull out of (technically 'back from') Gainesville - not crazy Will M.; if Brad can beat Deke on the recruiting trail, then it's an absolute no-contest between Lawing and Adams. Any Muschamp replacement worth his salt will try hard to retain him, though.
