Fred in 08
I think Cocktail can agree that this was the one player we loved to hate over the years. I see him getting burned numerous times at DB with the Texans just like he did at USC.

Quote of the Day
Wearing camouflage long johns under his golf attire, Weekley was asked about his impressions of the British Open growing up. "I don't watch golf," he replied. "If it ain't huntin' and fishin,' it don't interest me."
That is the best quote from a PGA Tour Professional I have every heard at a Major!
Look out Deion..
Reported by Gamecockcentral - USC spokesperson Michelle Schmitt confirmed Matthews and Odom had talked twice already."(Odom) basically told him he was welcome to come out for the team, as long as he followed two steps," Schmitt said. "One, he had to have permission and the blessing of coach (Steve) Spurrier, and two, he had to have his grades in order." Matthews led Cheraw to the AA lower-state championship game this past season.
Also Aaron Ellis is gone, which I feel is not good but "it is what it is." He was 6'8 around 200lbs and had great potential. We could've used him but maybe he was the "diamond in the rough" that Odom is known to recruit (or try too) but ended up too rough around the edges.
Here are the Gamecocks who made the various teams:
Andy Boyd - Second-team tight end
Cory Boyd - Third-team running back
Jasper Brinkley - First-team linebacker
Casper Brinkley - Third-team defensive line
Ryan Succop - Second-team placekicker
Ryan Succop - Second-team punter
Great for our guys but feel some others should have been mentioned (i.e Mitchell, Norwood, etc) but they didn't ask me. My only thought on the above is how did Andy Boyd make the list? Maybe since he is the grandpa of the team and been at USC the longest then seniority wins here.
I just don't think he is the second best TE in the league...what do you think?

USC #25 toughest place to play...
I actually think USC should be higher than Clemson not just because of my deep dislike of the tigers but b/c of it is truly a different stadium now that Spurrier is calling the shots. SC fans are truly in the game and we sell out every season. Clemson got front page news in Greenville due to selling 58k tickets which again for the fanbase that loves to talk sh*t and always bring up 1981 I really thought they could pack them in better. Sad. A ticket to a USC game is hard to come by and the price is going up and will go up again next year. Meanwhile at CU, they give tickets to high school students to help "pack them in" at games that may be viewed as less desirable by the IPTAY club.
When Clemson plays a lower tier team look in the upper deck it is empty but view a USC game against a lower tier team and the stadium is full (at least until 3rd quarter). I agree that UF is a tough place to play (thanks to Spurrier) but just don't see how CU is higher than USC.
What do you guys think -is the rating correct? Wait we are arguing over a video game...which brings to question - whose got it? any good?

Gamecock quote of the Day

We will miss #4 this year...
Glory to Old Georgia
Meet Georgia Bulldog Defensive Lineman Tripp Taylor. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Tripp, a sophomore in college, likes to beat up high school kids (classy) and then take their clothes off (gay?) and then urinate on them (psycho?).
From the AJC:
"For almost two long months, Charles Rogers says he's had to grit his teeth and wait for authorities to file charges against a University of Georgia football player who, along with several other college kids, allegedly stripped him of his clothes, beat him and then urinated on him during a Memorial Day weekend attack at Lake Allatoona."

Everyone needs a little "TLC"
Amy Rushing and Kelly Whitlock, owners of Kelly’s Deli & Pub in the Vista, are opening a new bar on South Stadium geared to Gamecock fans and new area residents.
The Loose Cockaboose (or TLC for short) will have indoor and outdoor bars, an outdoor stage and beach volleyball.
This is a great idea and one that should have been done 20 years ago. Also a pretty cool name, what do you think?

Where in the world is Tre, you may say...
He has gotten some looks from NBA teams but no bites yet. I feel his best bet is a year or two in the Euro leagues and then come back to play in the NBA.

Why do our players keep the lawyers busy in columbia. Thoughts?
Quintin Richardson, an offensive lineman, was arrested this past Friday when deputies responding to an apartment complex shooting found marijuana in his pocket, authorities said. It was the same apartment complex where the 6-foot-4, 276-pound incoming freshman was stabbed during a fight June 24. Ross Montgomery Grant, 19, has been charged in the stabbing but has said he acted in self defense.
Richardson, 18, said in a statement issued by his attorney, Neal Lourie, that he needs to turn his life around. Yeah...that would help.
