The Big Spur (247Sports)New starter at strong safety. Jon Hoke confirmed that D.J. Smith will get the call tomorrow afternoon against the Vols. Smith, a sophomore from the Atlanta area, is making his second career start and has appeared in all but one game thus far in his tenure at Carolina. (That link also has a few more practice news and notes.) Also, here's Tony Morrell's Five Keys To Victory over Tennessee and a closer look at the Vols ($). And, here's a quick read about the beloved Ms. Jerri - Steve Spurrier's wife - who checked in on the team yesterday. TBS also wonders if Toledo head man Matt Campbell is emerging as the next to take the big job in Columbia. He's had success at the D3 level at national power Mount Union and has the Rockets in the CFP Top 25. Plus, a chat with a new offer: TN lineman Sadarius Hutcherson.

GC: Shawn Elliott talked about Lorenzo Nuñez yesterday during Carolina Calls and hinted at his role tomorrow ($). Plus, a chat with Lou Holtz about the importance of sustained success and top-notch recruiting for the Gamecocks. His 0-11 season at Carolina notwithstanding (and despite your opinion of him during his time on ESPN's College Football Final), Dr. Lou knows a thing or two about running a solid program. And some practice notes and recaps, as well as a look at a career for Brandon Shell that's "winding down" ($).

Yep, the spotlight's pretty bright for the Gamecocks as they go into the 2015-16 season looking to be the last team standing in Indianapolis next spring.

Tiffany Mitchell is one of those "star players" mentioned, and she was up at ESPN with coach Dawn Staley and some of the top players and coaches in the country.


The Big Spur (247Sports): Stokes' walkoff wins World Series for Black. The Garnet and Black World Series ended last night on a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth by Madison Stokes - the only run of a game scheduled for seven innings at Lexington County Baseball Stadium. However, the big winner was the Salvation Army: fans in attendance donates $4,300 to help with flood relief efforts in the Midlands. Good stuff.
