That’s a Wrap

As everyone reading this website already knows, Carolina’s baseball season is over, and it ended much sooner than anyone expected.  Despite the expectations of the program it was a good season, just not up to the normal standard the previous classes had set. It’s hard not to be disappointed in the way the season ended. […]

Time To Get Excited

There are few things better than night games at Carolina Stadium.  Few college baseball venues can match the beauty and size of The Ray, and even fewer can replicate that atmosphere.  And during the NCAA tournament, everything is a bit more intense. When Jordan Montgomery takes the mound tonight, it should be in front of […]

Just win now

The Gamecocks need to win their regional to have a successful season.  Anything short of that will be seen as a failure by many fans.  And those fans would be right.  South Carolina hasn’t failed to get out of a regional since 2009, the year before the College World Series run began. It’s not especially […]

NCAA Baseball Tourney Seeded like Basketball

Most of the readers of this site are well versed in the structure of the NCAA baseball tournament.  And who isn’t?  It’s simply 16 host teams, 8 of which are national seeds, hosting 16 4-team, double elimination tournaments, the winners of which play a best of three series to go to Omaha.  The four team, […]

Playing For Keeps

After the disaster that was the SEC Tournament, Carolina gets to stay home to begin the NCAA tournament.  The Gamecocks were rewarded for their strong season with a host site.  They were not given a national seed, in large part due to their Hoover performance.  But, at the end of the year, it’s not what […]

Happy 2,000th Day

Happy 2,000th Day.  It has now been two thousand days since Clemson last beat South Carolina in football.  That’s a very, very long time.  It probably seems even longer to our Tiger fans. Just how long is 2,000 days?  Well, 2,000 days ago Clemson last beat South Carolina in football, and in 2,000 days it […]

The Ideal Lineup

It’s been no secret that South Carolina has had many injuries this season.  Those injuries have caused many combinations of players to be used in the line up.  I was asked the other day what would be my ideal lineup for this team.  Since we might actually have these guys back and healthy, here it […]

SEC Tournament Week

South Carolina took two of three from Vanderbilt, and the Gamecocks got a little help to secure a Top Four seed for this week’s baseball tournament in Hoover.  Under the current format 12 teams make the tournament.  The eight lowest play a single elimination play-in game on Tuesday, and then a modified, double elimination tournament […]

National Seed Time

Before talking about a national seed, what a weekend the Gamecocks had to close the season.  Vanderbilt is a very talented team who is playing their best baseball of the year.  Thursday night and Saturday were the kind of wins that are a trademark of the program. With the exception of Friday’s first inning, Carolina’s […]

Alabama State Champs

South Carolina defeated Alabama two games to one over the weekend at Carolina Stadium.  Add to that last weekend’s series victory over Auburn, and the Gamecocks can claim the Alabama state championship.  LSU and Mississippi State have the same opportunity, but since Carolina doesn’t play either of them in the regular season, I’m comfortable declaring […]

New SEC Network Video Features South Carolina

Carolina opens football season on the SEC Network against Texas A&M.  Over the summer the SEC and ESPN will be trying to get networks to sign on the carry it.  thus far only AT&T U-Verse and Dish Network are signed up.  Other carriers should not underestimate the demand of the SEC fans.  I’m looking at you Time Warner.  Anyway, here’s the video:

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 […]

A new Gamecock to follow

Whammy is now on twitter. So, if you’re the kind of person who likes to blame the defensive coordinator early in the first half, you can now direct your frustrations directly at the DC. And then when you come around in the second half, you can tastefully retract with another mention.

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. As a Gamecock I’m happy to conclude that the real Carolina finally showed up and, of course, won the game, but is that […]
