Where baseball stands now

South Carolina managed to take two out of three from Auburn on the plains to end a miserable week.  In the preceding week Carolina lost leads against Florida to lose the series and followed that up by inexplicably losing to Charleston Southern and the Citadel.  At Auburn Carolina dropped the first game and was about […]

Where Did All the Offense Go?

South Carolina’s bats have had some short disappearing acts this season but nothing like what happened in Arkansas over the weekend.  The Gamecocks managed only 3 runs in 3 games.  Luckily that was good enough to win one of the games and avoid the sweep, but there wasn’t much more positive to take away. If […]

Lucky or Good?

By now you are probably very aware that South Carolina swept Tennessee over the weekend, and you are probably also aware that on Saturday Carolina won two games with walk-off home runs.

Yardcocks get past Presbyterian

Three USC pitchers combined for another shutout, and South Carolina improved to 4-0 with a 4-0 win over Presbyterian. The Gamecocks sent Curt Britt to the mound to face the Blue Hose. Britt was in and out of trouble all afternoon but didn’t allow any runs in 5 1/3 innings of work. He was relieved […]

Yardcocks sweep results in (mostly) Top Ten ranking

South Carolina opened its baseball season over the weekend with a sweep of Bucknell. The Bison are of questionable quality, but a sweep is a sweep. Depending on who you ask, the Gamecocks are now ranked 5th (Baseball America), 6th (Perfect Game) or 9th (NCBWA). The USAToday Coaches’ Poll isn’t out yet for some reason. […]

Tennis Balls Do Not Stand A Chance Vs. A.J. Cann

Here is a video of A.J. Cann getting a workout in, a interesting one at that. Seems he is working on his reaction time and defeating all tennis balls that come his way…

Everette Sands Has Our Vote for Citadel Job

We may be the only South Carolina Gamecocks blog site that feels that USC running backs coach Everette Sands is the right man for the job as the head coach at The Citadel. According to Sands himself he has interest in the job and basically says it is a dream job for him. He coached the […]
