The Daily Gamecock: Overtime goal powers Gamecocks past Clemson 2-1!  Great game report by Tanner Abel.  Go Cocks!  Beat Clemson!

The Big Spur: Gamecocks stun Tigers, take first in rivalry season by John Whittle.  We were out-shot 24-6 and played a man down most of the second half before winning in OT (103') - couldn't have dialed it up any better!  Also - UGA's defense working ahead during bye week. The Dawgs could not have dialed it up any better, either.  Todd Gurley and Nick Chubb are going to need to collide into each other in some sort of strange training table mashup before I will be upbeat about hosting the Silver Britches in two weeks.

Palmetto Recruiting: USC drops committed WR Bowman following his arrest.  Super-disappointing. Got to figure this ends any chance of recruiting his brother, also.

Gamecocksonline: Coach Spurrier Weekly Press Conference Videos and Quotes"We're still and always will be embarrassed by our performance the last game. (We) realize it's history and just try to learn from it and try to play a whole bunch better and coach a whole bunch better the next time out, so that's where we are right now." Listen to the whole thing. Also - Gamecocks Check in at No. 21 in Both National Polls.  Our school-record of 66 straight weeks in the rankings (5th best in the nation) is on the line.  You can check out the practice report and videos here.

NBC Sports: From the presser - Spurrier on Mike Davis: ‘good chance he’ll play’.  I'm getting tired of the "will he, won't he" from the HBC on this issue.  If Davis needs time to heal, then give him time to heal.  Let's put some pressure on David Williams, Brandon Wilds and Shon Carson to get it done against ECU.

Greenville News: Willie T. Smith III's presser piece - Gamecocks take physical approach for improvement.

O'burg Times and Democrat: Scott Hood's write-up - Spurrier says ‘embarrassing’ game prompts practice changes.

CBS Sports: East Carolina at South Carolina preview (this is a Pete Iacobelli AP article).  Plus - the Gators still haven't figured out what to do with the Idaho game.

Bleacher Report: South Carolina Needs RB Mike Davis to Hit the Ground Running vs. East Carolina by Barrett Sallee.

Garnet & Cocky: Gamecocks Vs. East Carolina: Inside the Football Numbers by Chris Carey.  Just in case you feel better at the thought that ECU won't have the same guns as A&M running the spread/"air raid" type offense, consider this number:  "70.5 – Shane Carden is FBS leader in completion percentage for returning quarterbacks."

The Rubber Chickens: TRC Unleashed Episode 68 – The Texas A&M Review.

Athlon: Offense -- good and bad -- headlines Week 1 action in the SEC.

Fox Sports: Rethinking division favorites; time not on Gamecocks' side. "South Carolina is going to need all the help it can get to keep the pressure off its defense, one that failed to put any on Hill last week. While Carden may not be operating behind an offensive line of the same caliber as the Aggies, [Mike] Davis' best attribute can come in helping to keep the Pirates offense on the sideline."

GamecockPride: USC Commit Jozie Milton on His Senior Season. Phil Kornblut has more on Frank Martin's 7'0" target - Rozelle Nix of Pensacola State JC, FL.

Tigernet: A little football anti-Gamecock porn for the Tiger fans(Ed. - no, it's not real porn) and just as believable as a letter to the editor at Penthouse Forum.  I like the part how he heard from another Ag how a USC fan hit a third Ag in the face for no reason!  "Greetings my Tiger brethren!"  Dude.

PS - I have never read Penthouse Forum.  Or even heard about it.  I don't know what you are talking about. Glad we got that covered.
