Can Steve Spurrier help South Carolina contend in the SEC? In this NHTSA Keys To Success, Campus Insiders’ Pete Fiutak reveals three keys to the Gamecocks’ 2015 season.
Let Campus Insiders show you what the Head Ball Coach’s rant about South Carolina’s “enemies” would sound like if it were filmed in front of a live studio audience.
Steve Spurrier’s 10th season as the head coach of the South Carolina Gamecocks was not one to remember, as the team finished only one game over .500 with their bowl game victory over Miami (FL) in the Independence Bowl. The Gamecocks’ 7-6 overall record, including going 3-5 in the SEC, was fifth-best in a down […]
The No. 11 seeded South Carolina Gamecocks and coach Frank Martin will be out to stabilize their largely up-and-down season when they face the Missouri Tigers in the opening round of the SEC Tournament Wednesday night at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Just which Gamecock team will show up seems anyone’s guess. After a 9-3 […]
South Carolina has struggled to put a win streak together during SEC play, and have mainly alternated wins and losses since February. After beating Georgia on January 31st, the Gamecocks lost two in a row, then won, then lost, then won, then lost two in a row, then won. Their last win was on February […]
Earlier this week when I was writing up the C of C series, I mentioned how nice it was to see a good team coming through Carolina Stadium early in the season. A few years ago Long Beach State came through for an even more high profile matchup. Those games are fun, maybe a little […]
Tuesday afternoon’s game started out a lot like the first game against the College of Charleston. Neither the offense nor the defense was especially sharp, and Carolina fell into an early hole. The Paladins led 2-0 headed to the home half of the third inning, and they had chased Matthew Vogel, the Carolina starting pitcher, […]
South Carolina took two of three games from the College of Charleston on Friday and Saturday to win the first series of the season. USC started off slowly, very slowly, on Friday night. Wynkoop didn’t pitch quite as well as he might have hoped, but that was a small part of the loss. The offense […]
South Carolina opens its baseball season on Friday, and junior Jack Wynkoop will be on the hill. Wynkoop, last year’s Saturday starter, started a team high 16 games last season. He finished 7-6 with a 2.86 ERA. On Saturday sophomore Will Crowe, last season’s Sunday starter, will be on the mound. Crowe finished last season […]
South Carolina took a big step toward fixing its defensive woes today. The Gamecocks hired Jon Hoke, recently of the Chicago Bears, to run their defense. Well, they hired him to be a co-coordinator with Lorenzo Ward. At the press conference earlier today, Coach Spurrier stated that Hoke would be the primary defensive play caller. […]
The South Carolina Gamecocks will get their second chance to knock off the undefeated Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday, February 14th at Rupp Arena. In their first meeting, Kentucky proved why they’re ranked second in the nation in points allowed (51.5 ppg), allowing South Carolina to only score 43 points (19 in the second half) en […]
After South Carolina snapped a four game losing streak in their last game against Georgia, winning 67-50, they will look to capture their second consecutive win when they travel to Arkansas to take on the high-scoring Razorbacks on Tuesday. The home team is coming into the game having just lost to Florida, snapping their three […]
I called last night’s game against Tennessee a must win, and despite a valiant comeback, South Carolina was not able to win it. With that loss USC is now 1-4 in conference with two home losses and the meat of the schedule coming up. They aren’t technically out of the running for the NCAA tournament, […]
Last week, we said that South Carolina needed to beat Alabama to keep realistic hopes of making the tournament alive. They did that and then went on the road and lost a very winnable game at Auburn. Now Carolina comes back home to play Tennessee in another must win game. At 1-3 in conference USC's […]
