TheBigSpur: Fournette jersey auction goes over 100K. The final bid was $101,000 and, as Fournette pledged after the USC-LSU game, the money will goes towards flood relief efforts in South Carolina. It's great that Fournette found a way to use his status as an athlete to help people, and he'll certainly have many fans here in SC for a long time. Also, Elliott has improved the Gamecocks. Shurburtt compares some of the offensive and defensive numbers under Spurrier and Elliott this season. And finally, Blaze Alexander commits to the Gamecocks. Not only is he a great player, but he has a great name. This is a win all the way around for Holbrook and the baseball team.
