The Cocky Formation is coming...

Per The State, seems Spurrier is developing his own type of formation similar to "the wildcat" or "the hog." I look forward to seeing this in 2009. Here is the text ---
The Gamecocks are looking to implement plays similar to the “Wildcat” formation that became popular in the NFL last season. But coach Steve Spurrier is calling it the “Cocky” formation, with starting quarterback Stephen Garcia on the sideline and a tailback taking a shotgun snap. Receiver Dion LeCorn was taking some of the snaps Thursday, but Spurrier indicated that true freshman Stephen Gilmore would get a look too. Gilmore played quarterback in high school and is working in the defensive secondary.
