Welcome back to the feed pail, where we take a look around the internet for some choice South Carolina Gamecocks tidbits and share it back here with you. We’re in kind of a dead period right now ahead of the early signing period, but there’s some recruiting news and other odds and ends.
Gamecocks elect permanent captains for 2017 — Dwayne McLemore, The State
Skai Moore, Hayden Hurst, Jake Bentley, and D.J. Wonnum were chosen as the team’s four permanent captains this season. Certainly can’t argue with that logic, as all four were key pieces of the Gamecocks’ success this year.
Future South Carolina QB Dakereon Joyner to work again with Gamecocks alum Perry Orth — Hale McGranahan, SEC Country
Joyner, one of the crown jewels of the Gamecocks’ 2018 recruiting class, has been taking some lessons from former South Carolina quarterback Perry Orth. The two will link up again for a throwing session later this week ahead of Joyner’s early enrollment, and Orth was complimentary of his progress:
Orth, who went from walk-on to starter at South Carolina, has seen plenty of improvement in Joyner’s junior and senior tape, “from a passing standpoint.”
It’s “significantly better,” Orth said.
2013 Outback Bowl wasn't just about Jadeveon Clowney and 'The Hit' for Gamecocks — David Cloninger, The Post and Courier
This is a nice retrospective on the last time South Carolina and Michigan met in Tampa, and a bit of an oral history that collects quotes from Connor Shaw, D.J. Swearinger, and others. Good memories here.
Clemson close to Top 25 a day before rivalry game — David Cloninger, The Post and Courier
Switching gears to basketball, the big game against Clemson is tomorrow night and the Tigers have been enjoying a nice start to their season. Their upset of then-No. 22 Florida has Clemson (9-1) lurking just outside of the Top 25. The Gamecocks are going to have to bring it if they want to avoid a second straight loss to the Tigers.
