Davis is questionable for A&M?

Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

TFP:  Seven Bridges Road. Yes - the 1969 Steve Young version rather than the famous Eagles cover  -  in homage to the Dude (who rants in Espanol so hopefully safe for work; TFP is always looking out for you!). South Carolina's Mike Davis questionable for season opener against Texas A&M.  Here is a link to the report from The State (looks like it is a free article) and another from Phil Kornblut with audio from Coach Spurrier.   Obviously, this is serious news with big implications for the opener and beyond.

The Big Spur: Davis could miss season-opening start.  John Whittle breaks it down.   How freaked out are you?

Daily Gamecock: Sports Editor Danny Garrison is not the only one following Bryson Allen-Williams-@b_quatro4. J.C. Shurburtt handicaps the SEC Over/Under: Total Regular Season Wins. SEC betting preview.   13:2?   I'll take those odds.

Gamecock Pride: Checks in with newly committed K Joseph Charlton.  Too late - UNC offered Charlton right after he committed.

Ron Morris: It takes brains to play offensive line - a positive write-up about Shawn Elliot.   First, Sapakoff.  Now, Ron?  This morning's dose of Sports Columnist sunshine brought to you by the numbers 33 and 6. Gamecocks turn to youth in secondary.  Phil Kornblut chats with B.J. McKie about his son - USC guard Justin McKie.

Greenville News: The HBC is lobbying for the Kid from Flowery Branch - Give Connor Shaw a shot against Hoyer, Manziel. It's Connor in a landslide in this poll - did Carolina fans stuff the balltot box? I suspect there are a lot of votes from real Browns' fan in there too.

Houston Chronicle: JD had to leave Texans practice early yesterday after a helmet-to-helmet collision.

ESPN Boston: Red Sox demote Jackie Bradley Jr. His defense is elite; a .216 average and recent 0-35 slump sunk him, however, along with some pretty esoteric contract considerations regarding options if Jackie spends a certain number of days in the minors.  I expect him back in Beantown on the 40-man roster in September.
