Three-star running back commits to South Carolina

The Gamecocks add their second 2015 running back commitment.

Fall practice schedule released

You no longer have to breathlessly await the beginning of fall practice without knowing the specific dates and times you're waiting for.

This out-of-context vine of Steve Spurrier is hilarious and hypnotic


Following South Carolina's annual media golf event last week, Steve Spurrier took some time to answer questions about the Gamecocks' chances of making a run at an SEC title in 2014. As he often does, the Head Ball Coach spent some time explaining how he'd rather take things one game at time instead of getting fixated on one or two opponents. He recalled his early days in Columbia and how one of his first acts was to rip down the "Beat Clemson" signage in the locker room. Taken out of context, his comments are hilarious and strangely hypnotic. I didn't realize that Spurrier had hired Tobias Funke as a speech writer.

For internet reasons, here's Steve Spurrier on the cover of Abbey Road


Yesterday, Brandi Mills of The Big Spur snapped a photo of Steve Spurrier in which his gait resembled that of the mid-stride Beatles on the cover of Abbey Road. Lacking the most basic Photoshop skills, I asked the internet to make my dreams a reality. The internet was more than happy to oblige. So here you go. (via Donnie Solesbee)

Two four-star JUCO prospects commit to Gamecocks

Watch Spurrier's introductory press conference

As Steve Spurrier gets set to enter his second decade as South Carolina's head football coach, let's look back on his introductory press conference from Nov. 23, 2004.

Stephen Garcia is doing a Reddit AMA


Stephen Garcia is doing an AMA (AMA = internetspeak for "ask me anything") on Reddit. You might be hard-pressed to come up with questions though. After all, he had a pretty unremarkable career and his time at Carolina concluded in a neatly-packaged farewell that offered little in the way of controversy. He's going to start answering questions at 2 p.m. EDT, so you'd better hustle if you want to get yours in.

Frank Martin's top five Pitbull songs


Frank Martin announced that he was taking questions on Twitter today, so I asked the only basketball question that I am qualified to ask. His answer leaves me with questions I didn't know I had about Pitbull's career trajectory. Has he been toning down the bad words to appeal to a wider -- dare I say worldwide -- audience? Are either of these two songs that Dr. Pepper commercial? OK, I've exhausted my Pitbull knowledge. Thanks for reading this.

Help us remember funny Clemson things

Clemson finds itself in a lot of embarrassing situations. It's past time we made a bona fide commitment to documenting every single one of them.

Tigers still salty over double-OT loss to Carolina

Is this South Carolina-Missouri game on its way to becoming a rivalry or nah?

Watch the trailer for the Spurrier documentary

Should we be worried about the Steve Spurrier documentary? This can't possibly be mishandled, right?

New Gamecock football cleats for 2014


Though @GamecockEquip has trolled South Carolina fans by tweeting fake chrome helmets in the past, these new Under Armour Blur cleats appear to be legit. Blur is an existing line of Under Armour cleat that can be seen here getting the garnet-and-black treatment. So how do we feel about these? Would noted Under Armour cleat critic Connor Shaw approve?

Spurrier to Jesse Palmer: Dylan Thompson is not as pretty as you


OK, let's take stock of what has just transpired. Spurrier threw some serious shade on Palmer for the amount of attention he devotes to maintaining his good looks by calling him "prettier" than Dylan Thompson. Here, "pretty" is distinct from "attractive" in that it qualifies his appearance with a degree of femininity. While perhaps not the most forward-thinking insult Spurrier has ever dished out, this is still highly effective shade in the context of a 69-year-old man comparing two football players. In a single stroke, both Palmer and Thompson can consider themselves knocked down a peg, and that's why what Steve Spurrier does should be considered art.


It's time for Steve Spurrier to do his thing and for Dylan Thompson to carve out his territory as the new Tim Tebow.

Dylan Thompson, A.J. Cann, and J.T. Surratt are on their way to SEC Media Days


Not pictured: Steve Spurrier. Is the Head Ball Coach riding shotgun or flying the damn plane? Or did he arrive in Hoover early to get in a round of golf before the Gamecocks' 10 a.m. media session?


South Carolina published its preseason depth chart today. Let's get into it.

Jackie Bradley, Jr. is a wizard

The former Gamecock made a spectacular grab to rob Tyler Flowers of an extra-base hit.

The Rubber Chickens present Dabo Swinney's watch list


Our Friends at The Rubber Chickens Blog have unearthed the only watch list that truly commands your attention.

Four-star lineman has a top three


That the Summverville (S.C.) offensive guard would name South Carolina, Georgia, and Clemson as his top three did not come as much of a surprise. And while Bailey insists that the list he provided is in no particular order, there is much thought that the Gamecocks stand out in front by a decent margin. The 6'5, 315-pound rising senior has visited Columbia in an unofficial capacity on four separate occasions since February 28.
