I was a long-suffering Gamecock fan, and my loyalty has been redeemed by the back-to-back National Champion baseball team. Now, for the first time in years, I feel like this is year is "next year". We shall see!

Leftover Hotdog: We Don't Need "A Carolina Man"

A thoughtful post by the General. Do you agree we should be willing to look outside the The Roundhouse?

Life of a Gamecock: Potential Replacements for the Athletic Director Position at USC

Our friend Adam Garrett - who has an excellent ear for such things - runs down the names being mentioned the most as possible successors to Eric Hyman.

Gamecock Central: The Board Watch

A well-researched and well-written piece about the remaining prospects on USC's board, position-by-position, from GC's recruiting reporter Josh Low. A free-content article that is definitely worthy of your attention.

Montreal Gazette: Stephen Garcia and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Stephen has had a bad break (literally) - injuring two fingers on his throwing hand while exiting from a team bus in Montreal. Sometimes I wonder if Stephen didn't have bad luck whether he'd have any luck at all - which made me think of the classic children's book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Well, we wish him a speedy recovery and that he's able to make it with the Als. They seem pretty high on him - and with good cause in my humble opinion. I suspect I won't be the only USC fan to pay a bit more attention to the CFL this year. Peace out!

Gamecock Roundball: Coach Martin lands his first 2014 prospect - "That kid is real!"

Following up on the commitment of Southern Miss transfer 2G LaShay Page last week, USC head basketball coach Frank Martin has now landed his first pledge for the 2014-2015 season in 6'1" point...

Sports Talk Radio: BOT chairman indicates USC could move quickly on Tanner

Phil Kornblut thinks the tea-leaves are indicating a quick decision on naming Ray Tanner as South Carolina's new athletic director. It's out of my hands, but I hope we don't head in this direction. I want Tanner coaching USC baseball for many more years, and I would prefer an athletics administration professional to be named to the A.D.'s office.

FWtCT: SEC Schools With the Best Sports Year, 2011-12

A fun post from over at For Whom the Cowbell Tolls - do you think they got it right?

Leftover Hotdog: Have A Parade Anyway

If you're feeling a bit down-in-the-dumps after the mangling we just received from the Arizona Wildcats, then this post from the General's Wife will lift your spirits a bit.

LB Larenz Bryant commits to South Carolina

I know our attention will be focused on Omaha, but we should not overlook a huge commitment to Shawn Elliot (primary), Kirk Botkin and Lorenzo Ward from consensus 4 star LB Larenz Bryant of Charlotte's Zebulon Vance H.S.. In fact, the only debate is where he falls among the nation's top LB prospects - he is the Rivals # 3 National LB, Scout # 7 National OLB, 247 # 4 National OLB and ESPN National # 13 ILB. Wow. This is the kind of guy who could see a lot of early playing time.

2012 College World Series: National Perspective on the Championship Series

Well, folks - this is it. The books are all closed and the accounts are all settled for the 2011-2012 college sports year - all except for baseball, that is. It's now down to two teams - the A...

Gamecock Roundball: LaShay Page Commits (for real, this time)

Although this has looked like something of a foregone conclusion for a week or two, Southern Miss 6'2" 2G LaShay Page finally pulled the trigger to become a Gamecock during an official visit to...

Athlon: SEC Football - 2012 All-Conference Team

It must be that time of year ... Athlon Sports dishes out its first, second and third All-SEC teams. Are we over-represented, or under-represented? Or just right?

LaShay Page to play for Frank Martin next season

Per Darryl Slater, re-tweeting CBS Senior Basketball Writter Jeff Goodman. UPDATE: Kornblut says Page *may* commit during his visit .

SEC 2012 Heisman Contenders: The Way It Should Be

Unsurprisingly, our friends at Athlon's are high on Marcus Lattimore, but do any other Gamecocks make their SEC top 25? You may be surprised in a positive way - check it out.

The Daily Feed - June 18, 2012: CWS Day 4 Edition

Sportstalkgolive: Gamecocks ready to battle Arkansas for bracket lead (AUDIO). A great piece by Phil Kornblut, with news and notes on most of the USC starters and a trip down memory lane with...

Gamecock Central: Revenues projected to surpass $80 million

This is an important and well-sourced free-content article by Scott Hood on the state of the Athletic Department's finances. Read it all, as they say.

Cocky Country: Tweet Success

Katie does a Twitter-round up of the Yardcocks celebrating the OU sweep, which is pretty cool to behold.

Smart Football: The most important thing you’ll see today

I'm forced to agree with the mavens at SF. The importance of this link simply cannot be overstated. Who knew? Nobody told me! I thought they were merely decorations with a utilitarian, no-slip side functionality! You may never watch football sports the same way again. No need to thank me fellas - l'd rather light a candle than curse your darkness.

Bleacher Report: Williams-Brice Boasts Ninth Best Student Section in CFB

Most of you no doubt share my disdain for most writers on BR (specifically excluding Flounder, Alex Roberts, Adam Garrett and Barrett Sallee!). Nevertheless, here's an offering from "Featured Writer" Alex Callos that ranks the W-B as the ninth best student section in college football - not bad for a Buckeye, all things considered. We're ahead of Clemson (our Oldest Rival) and Georgia (our oldest Non-Rival) so I'll take being fourth in the SEC behind UF, A&M and LSU even if they're mostly resting on the laurels.

Ho hum - Another Day, Another SEC National Championship

Congratulations to the Alabama Crimson Tide for winning the National Championship in Softball, taking the best of three series from the Oklahoma Sooner women 2-1. How many does that make for the SEC this academic year? Does Bubba's Green Jacket count, too?

Crimson & Cream Machine - Super Regional Baseball: Oklahoma vs South Carolina Quick Fire Notes

Some perspective on the upcoming Super-Regional tilt between the Sooners and the Cocks from our colleagues at the SB blog for OU. Do you agree with OnlyOneOU that the Sooners have an edge on the mound - both in starting pitching and the bullpen? Yes - the Sooners faced down four elimination games with elan in Charlottesville, but did OU really get tested in their regional? We shall find out. I think it's going to be epic.

South Carolina Gamecock Athletics: It's Time for USC to Add New Varsity Sports - Part 2

In this post, we return to the topic of whether the University of South Carolina - and other universities of similar size and profitability - should use some of the millions and millions received...

Wait a second - I was told Alshon Jeffery was the one with the off-field issues, and that Justin Blackmon was a can't miss kid ...

so what gives with going 60 in a 35 mph zone with a BAC of .24 (three times the legal limit)? That's DUI # 2 for Justin, for those of you scoring at home.

NCAA Baseball Tournament Day 3: The SEC sits pretty on Sunday

At the beginning of Day 3 of the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament, the SEC has posted a 14-2 record - and no less than six league members (Arkansas, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana State, South...

Memorial Day 2012

I hope that the entire University of South Carolina Gamecock family will take a moment today to reflect on the sacrifices of all veterans - men and women, past and present, living and dead - who...

South Carolina Gamecock Athletics: It's Time for USC to Add New Varsity Sports - Part 1 (Updated)

Over at Dawg Sports, our friend T. Kyle King has recently argued that it is time for the University of Georgia to add men's and women's lacrosse as varsity sports - which are both club-level squads...

Hoover Blues: Same Old Story, version 13

Got that Mid-May "meh" feeling again? Does it seem like something of a yearly occurrence? Do you think it may have something to do with the way the Yardcocks deliver - or, more accurately, fail...

South Carolina Gamecock Football Post-Spring Wrap-up: Linebackers

This post continues our unit-by-unit examination of USC football coming out of 2012 spring practice. On offense, we've taken a look at the Quarterbacks and the Offensive Line, while on "D" we've...

DB Pharoh Cooper makes it three for USC

Steve Spurrier wants Frank Martin to know that the football team can bag a bunch of recruits in a 24 hour period too. 247 rates this 5'11", 180lb dual defensive back/wide receiver as a 3 star, but Scout, Rivals and ESPN have yet to rank him. His other offers were from NCSU and ECU; Brad Lawing was the recruiter of record. He projects to be a cornerback or safety when he gets to Carolina. The Big Spur caught up with him earlier this evening.
