GamecocksOnline: In men's swimming, USC's Mahmoud, Peribonio Named to Preseason All-America Team. Way to go, men.  PlusRio Olympic Medal Experience Drives Former Gamecock to Work for More.

The Rubber Chickens: Snap Judgments – 2016 USC @ Mississippi State Edition. I think he nails most of this; I wouldn't say we were greedy for a W however - I just thought we had a better chance than I turned out we did. I do agree 100% with him about Orth v. B-Mac, and it's no slight against Perry.

The Daily Gamecock: In his column, Abe Danaher thinks McIlwain both the present and future for Gamecocks. PlusDawn Staley's Olympic experience extends further than medals.

SEC Country: Randy Capps is allocating blame - Where Kentucky, South Carolina went wrong.  I would allocate a bit more % to "Time and Place" but otherwise his analysis is irrefutable. Also - UK-USC is going to be a 7:30 p.m. kickoff at U.K. Positive thinking ~ More time for us to enjoy this. Negative thinking ~ More time for him to get ready for us. Can you find the guy on this list who actually was happy with our OL play in Starkville? Oh yeah - that guyWeek 2 SEC Players Of The Week Announced.

Josh Kendall: If you're up against The State paywall but willing to read in grey scale around the paywall box, then this a good analytical piece - The three things that should worry South Carolina fans.

ESPN: SEC Week 3 early look. Appropriate, cautionary words in the notes. A pity we don't rate much better than "notes" from the four-letter network anymore.

Charlotte Observer: Numbers and notes from NC State’s loss to ECU. Speaking of notes.

Hoist the Colors: Pirates learn from close win, work on tackling techniqueWait a minute! That's what we're working on too.  Plus - We need to use good technique on this guy.

The Student Section: In case you were wondering if ECU needed any extra motivation to try and sink us at W-B, after having won their sixth straight victory against an ACC foe last week, then keep this in mind - When the Big 12 recently trimmed its list of expansion candidates, East Carolina Pirates didn’t make the cut (from 9.10.16). Don't think a team made up of guys spurned by Power 5 programs doesn't have a huge, teamwide chip on its shoulder now that ECU has been passed by (again) for a Power 5 slot.  That and being +6.5 road dogs.

Gamecock Central: Wes Mitchell's Podcast asks and answers - What does OrTre Smith's commitment mean for the Gamecocks? Would the prior staff have landed Smith? I seriously doubt it. Plus - GC's Collyn Taylor does a round-up on Gamecocks in MLB: Sept. 6-11. Ortre Smith, Jr. Highlights. Watch for # 4; he's hard to miss.

The Big Spur: Muschamp & South Carolina stay hot on the trail.  22 commitments; 5 straight four-stars.
