South Carolina Gamecocks Football - The Feed Pail: October 2, 2015

Might as well let G.A. Mangus call the plays since he's doing most of the recruiting.

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

GamecocksOnline: #10 ranked Carolina women's soccer heads to Arkansas tonight to take on the Hogs. We are 2nd in NCAA attendance nationally.  Let's get behind this team.

The State: USC play callers evolve as QBs change by Josh Kendall. Lede - "South Carolina's offense is fluid at the moment." Truth - South Carolina's offense is a pot luck dinner at the moment.

SportstalkSC: Jon Hoke readies Gamecock defense for Mizzou’s freshman QB. Wait. I thought we weren't doing anything special for Lock, per the HBC.

247: I give up. Either the staff are masters of deception or they feel we're at a point with this bunch where one "D" alignment is as good as another - USC defense will use same scheme versus new Missouri QB. Maybe its a bit of both.

Gamecock Cereal: Bless his heart  - Will Tilley maps out How the Gamecocks could win the SEC East. There is a better chance of me learning tensor calculus by the end of the season than USC winning out and UGA losing three games while still managing to knock off UF and UK. Truth be told, we lost the 2015 East race at some point in 2012-2013, when we decided to coast in the one conference where you cannot coast. Plus - Collyn Taylor writes a slightly more realistic piece in Gameday prep: Three storylines.

Kansas City Star: South Carolina at Missouri: Three-minute college football preview and All eyes on Drew Lock, but he’s ready for the pressure.

RockM Nation: This is not the South Carolina offense Missouri fans are used to seeing. Bill C analyzes the Carolina defense and special teams, too.  Worth the read.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Ben Frederickson makes his Quick Read: Mizzou vs. South Carolina.

Fox Sports: South Carolina tasked with slowing tough Missouri defensive front. The game will hinge on us winning this battle.

Daily Gamecock: Sports Editor Will Helms has Three Keys. He nails it.

Spurs & Feathers: This is a great background piece on T.J. Holloman - Holloman wants to make numbers add up for Gamecock defense.

David Caraviello: I was wondering if we had ever had a player from the Show Me State at USC and voila - More than a homecoming for Gamecocks’ lone Missouri native. David includes some additional notes and insights.

SECCountry: Throwback Thursday with Steve Spurrier: "That was a mistake on my part".  To PAT or not to PAT, that is the question.

Gamecock Toast: If you're actually going to the game, then GT posts South Carolina vs. Missouri-Everything You Need To Know.

SouthernPigskin: SEC East has Chance to Flex its Muscles. The only muscular team in the East right now is UGA. Florida has had a nice start to the season; if in these next two weeks the Gators can knock off the Rebels at the Swamp and then beat the Missouri Tigers on the road, that will set up highly ranked and intriguing games @ LSU on 10.17 and the Georgia game in Jax on 10.31 (following a bye).  However, I think the good money is on them going 1-3 or even 0-4 over that stretch.

WACH-Columbia: The 'Captain' Carey Rich and Corey Miller discuss the high expectations for 2016 Carolina men's hoops. I like how Rich calls Sindarius Thornwell the "Stephon Gilmore of the basketball program." I like Sindarius to come out salty, hungry and healthy. I also like the Captain's shirt. PS - I know Corey was polarizing recently, but he is spot on about what playing 5 walk-ons in the offensive two deep says about the state of the football program.
