First off, we'd be remiss not to take a moment to remember those that have fought for our freedom, both young and old, and especially those that have made the ultimate sacrifice. These brave men and women are the reason we're able to do many things we're able to do today. As the son of a 20+ year retired Army vet who served in Operation Desert Shield/Storm, I (and the rest of the staff) thank you.
TheBigSpur (247): It's decision day for Columbia's own Seventh Woods. Will it be South Carolina or North Carolina? He makes his announcement at 9:45 at Hammond, his high school. Plus, Shawn Elliott talks about Connor Mitch and says "he'll be ready" when the time comes for him to return to the field. With three games left, the season is drawing to a close, so we may not see a ton of him down the stretch (maybe in a possible mop-up situation if any games get out of hand).
Cereal: Collyn Taylor says Saturday was "a moral victory"...and feels that a bowl game is still a possibility. I touched on it yesterday, and I happen to think that it is - slightly. However, as I noted yesterday, this team had chances to solidify themselves as a bowl team but wasted them.
The State: "Seventh Woods would be the biggest catch yet" for Frank Martin. Also, read how Perry Orth has been nominated for an award for the country's best walk-on, and how Jonathan Walton has been used in a few formations as a RB, a position the WILL linebacker has been a little familiar with. A couple of players - Skai Moore (hip pointer) and Mike Matulis (ribs) - were held out, but the injuries don't seem to be that serious.
