Friday Gamecock News Thread

  • Ever wonder how the nonconference schedules of the six BCS leagues stack here.
  • It's official - the Mets have agreed to terms with first-round draft choice Reese Havens, the 22nd overall pick in last week's amateur draft, will be getting a signing bonus of about $1.4 million....more here
  • Rivals100: 2009 Prospect Rankings.....I wish I saw more consideration for South Carolina but do those stars really mean anything? What are your thoughts? I don't put a lot of weight on them but boy do I wish SC could land some 5 star kids.
  • Marcus Robinson retired Monday as a member of the Chicago Bears. Robinson spent the first six of his 11 seasons with Chicago and decided to retire with the team that drafted him out of South Carolina in the fourth round in 1997.
  • Horn workn' it the past few months...

Gamecocks v Clemson Video

This sums it up in a simple manner, just hope the stick man fighting translates to victory in collegiate sports also!

Spurrier being honest...

But new things are on the horizon and gamecock glory is getting closer....just give Spurrier time! One thing I love about Coach Spurrier is he tells it how it is; check this video out - HERE.

Walk-ons given scholly

University of South Carolina men’s basketball coach Darrin Horn has granted scholarships to walk-on players Branden Conrad and Robert Wilder for the 2008-09 season.

Conrad, a 6-foot-2 guard, played in 10 games last season. He had transferred from Navy, then sat out a season before getting his chance to play. He scored six points and had six rebounds last season....yes that is a total not a average.

Wilder, a 6-foot-1 guard from Chapin, played in six games for the Gamecocks last fall. He had three points and two rebounds.....again that is a total and not a average.

The moves gives South Carolina 11 scholarship players for next season, two fewer than the NCAA permits. So now they offically have a practice squad for next season.

In other news...Mr. Gray lands at CCU....good luck to the kid.
