At USC men's basketball team so far this season.
Through 7 games the offense is lacking and is the problem as wintessed by LOHD blogger Moose. I know Dave Odom is a fan of the Hooiser (the movie) style of basketball with the 3 passes before a shot (at least it seems that way). This season so far is marked with a clear sore spot --our offense. They are dead last in the SEC in scoring offense averaging 65.1 points per game. They are last in the SEC in Team FG % at 42.3%. They are last in SEC 3 point shooting at 27.5 %, having attempted 142 shots from behind the arc which is the 6th most in the SEC but second to last in making them at 39 3 pt FG made. There is a bright spot and that is Free Throw shooting were the Gamecocks are cashing in 72% of the time, which ranks them 2nd in the league as a team.
The gamecocks are lead by Tre Kelley and Brandon Wallace in most stat categories. They are not the problems, the problem lies in the rest of the team not producing. This could make for a long season for Gamecock basketball fans. Defense is doing well, like always but we could use a injection of stellar offensive playing. And yes I said "stellar."
I hope for Christmas Dave Odom has asked Santa for some O-Fence!
Mr. Tommy Bowden seemed to take a little swipe the other day at the USC faithful. In his press conference, the issue was discussed of some Clemson fans not being happy with the performance of the Tigers over the last half of the season and job security issues. This is how the news article when...
"Losing to South Carolina certainly added to the grumbling, but Bowden had to laugh at the reminder that USC coach Steve Spurrier received a half million dollar raise after completing a 7-5 season.
"That's amazing how this thing works because I'm at a place where seven gets you fired," he said. "He's at a place where seven gets you a raise." "
I consider that a swipe but one could see some truth behind it.

Here is a interesting look at the debate and what could have been if the BCS was not in place.....ESPN article.
Oh a side note, I am in favor of a playoff system. Have the Top 10 teams battle it out. Seed 1 and 2 get a bye the first round. This would put away all doubts on who is the champ, only the strong survive. Also the whole bowl system is terrible, it seems every team that is in a big time conference and has a winning record goes to a bowl. I know that is a money thing but the playoff system would be a lot more fun and interesting to watch. Maybe throw in a couple of bowl games for the teams that did not make it to the "big dance" but reduce the number of bowls...not every team goes...maybe limit it to 8 win teams. I know it is not a perfect system and I don't have all the answers for how it would work but I am simply saying that a playoff system needs to be in place.
What do you guys think----stick with BCS or go to a playoff system?

Here is what they had to say about the Music city bowl.....
17) Music City: (Dec. 29): Clemson (8-4) vs. Kentucky (7-5). With so many playmakers on both sides, I'm tempted to rate this one higher, but what are the chances something involving Clemson will live up to its potential?

Well the gamecocks welcome back Alumni/ex-coach Bobby Cremins and his College of Charleston Cougars tonight at the Colonia center. The cougars have a lot to prove as there coaches returns for the first time since taking the job in 1993 and then quitting a day later. The gamecocks also have a lot to prove with a pitiful lose to Clemson last Saturday. I will be in attendants for my first basketball game of the season so hopefully the gamecocks can pull this one out. The big question is will the fans booo Bobby as an old coach or cheer for him as a alumni The game is on tv tonight, so look for Katharine and I, in are matching Ronaldo Jerseys with are garnet afro wings some where in the upper deck.
On a side note the super bowl bound Panthers crapped in there pants again last night on Monday Night football. Blowing another 4 quarter lead to bring there sorry season to a 6 and 6 mark. It might be time to move JR from the flag football team to the real team.
