Post & Courier: Lorenzo Nunez to start at quarterback for Gamecocks against UCF. This is a solid coaching move in my book. Also - For winless Central Florida and struggling South Carolina, it hardly feels like 2013 anymore. Please recall in '13 we got no credit for beating UCF. We fell in the AP poll after beating them in Orlando. When the Knights won the AAC and made it to the BCS, the media narrative was there was "only one small blemish" on UCF's record, like it was some trip-up game ... not that Carolina had prevailed in a steam-bath slobber-knocker with our back-up QB against a NFL 1st rounder in Blake Bortles.
Saturday Down South: I was just wondering this myself - Chip Kelly to the SEC? Odds placed on where his next coaching stop could be. Great recruiter; has a definite offensive philosophy; relatively young (52). Check, check, check.
Garnet & Cocky: Over at the FanSided site, Tristan Davis is wondering the same thing - Chip Kelly Headed to South Carolina Gamecocks in 2016? Is it too early to think that an 0-2 start in Philly will result in the firing of a coach with 20 wins in the NFL in his first two full seasons? If the Eagles do fire him, though, do we care if it was fair or not?
