CFBTN on USC-UF

He has us beating the spread. I'd be happy enough with this score. Unfortunately, he also has Georgia curbstomping Auburn.

Conner Cleared to Play

Looks like Conner is going to play. This is good news, I still have four years of eligibility left and was half expecting a "Tennessee Kicker" call from the HBC this weekend.

Big Spur is reporting that Cal Ripken's son, Ryan Ripken, has pledged to the Gamecocks.

Coach Horn Lands a Center

2

Congrats to Darrin Horn and staff for reeling in 6'9" center Tyrone Haughton of Miami, FL. When it became clear that Brice Johnson of Edisto, SC was likely going out-of-state, Horn made Haughton a top priority and he's been leaning our way for several weeks now. He holds an offer from UConn, not to mention Bama, as well as Va Tech and Marshall. He is a little thin at 195 but will obviously put on weight in college. ESPN, Scout, Rivals and have him as a 3 star. Wish he was available this year!

UGA Suspends Three RBs

Looks like CMR and McGarrity decided to delay the suspensions so Crowell could play against UF. Maybe now they'll shut up about Spurrier and Hyman's handling of the Garcia fiasco. Does anybody get the feeling that Crowell may be the next Maurice Clarett?

And ironically.... for USC to win, it may take a game with stats that look just like that. Brace yourselves for a bumpy ride on November 5th.

Spurrier: Ellington strains hamstring, questionable for Saturday

1

Gamecock Central is reporting that Bruce Ellington practiced in a yellow no-contact jersey on Thursday and is questionable for Saturday's game in Knoxville with a slight "hamstring pull." In other news, I will conclude my Wednesday evening by eating an entire box of Lucky Charms and crying myself to sleep.
