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 […]

Kentucky Blues

It's trite to say that it is not easy to win on the road in the SEC.  It's trite because it's true.  Even when you're playing in a place like Lexington, which doesn't have the rabid fans that exist in Baton Rouge or Starkville, it's hard. Friday night's disaster was followed by a close loss […]

Gamecocks Sweep Same Old Tigers

South Carolina baseball is one of the premier programs in the nation, and they acted like it this weekend.  Every year the Gamecock team is different, and each of the teams creates its own identity, but the really successful teams all share some characteristics that have become the calling card of the program.  Battle and […]

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. […]

Signing Day Upshot: More Domination Coming

Signing day has come and gone, and South Carolina had a pretty good day. Of the 4 recruits who were up in the air going into the day, all 4 chose the Gamecocks. Add to that the fact that every recruit who was committed ended up signing and you have a happy Wednesday in Columbia. […]

Why no BCS for Gamecocks?

It's been a great season, and it's been a frustrating season.  Had Carolina found a way to beat Tennessee it could have been a special season.  Had Carolina not held on against Vandy or Kentucky or not have Connor Shaw's miracle in Missouri, it could have been a disappointing season.  It's a 10-2 season, and […]

We’re going to Orlando

On Sunday night the University announced what everyone already knew: South Carolina had been invited to play in the Capital One Bowl in Orlando.  The Gamecocks will be playing Wisconsin at 1 pm on New Year's Day.  Outside of the BCS the Capital One Bowl is the most prestigous bowl an SEC team can attend. […]
