247: SEC Country writer says USC not the most talented Gamecocks. Also, (Phil) Steele says MSU over Carolina. Have to love the media narrative. And Steve Spurrier, who hired last year’s defensive staff, took a shot at Whammy Ward and Jon Hoke, both of whom, again, he hired.
The State: Speakig of the HBC, guess who was in town signing his book? More from The State - USC football staff asks a lot from versatile T.J. Holloman. Can’t stress enough the importance of him - and the rest of the LBs - at peak performance with Skai Moore out of commission. Plus: a look at the Gamecocks/MSU game from 2000, which included one of the most memorable plays in program history. (Tryptic named it the #2 game all-time against the Bulldogs in his piece yesterday.) More on Jamarcus King and his role with the program this year and moving forward. Hoops: Couple of big visits coming up for Frank Martin, including Devontae Shuler.
P&C: Good read on Bryan Edwards. His high school coach compares him to Albert Haynesworth, the last player that “truly amazed” him on the field.
Gamecock Central: Call-in show recap - it’s Orth getting the start under center, with B-Mac seeing some time.
SEC Country: Tackling all about effort and flying to the ball for the Gamecocks. Not “flocking”, but flying. Also, Gamecocks prepare for a raucous Saturday night crowd in Starkville. (Upset alert, perhaps?)
