South Carolina hosts the Manhattan Jaspers today at 4 at Carolina Stadium.  The game will be broadcast on ESPNU.  This is the first game of the NCAA regionals.  Each regional consists of 4 teams playing a double elimination tournament.  South Carolina is the 1-seed; Clemson is the 2-seed; Coastal Carolina is the 3-seed, and Manhattan is the 4-seed.  1 plays 4, and 2 plays 3.  Then the winners play and the losers play. Who are these Manhattan Jaspers?  They're the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament champions.  They are right next to that Manhattan, but are actually located in the Bronx.  They are 33-25 on the season, including 18-0 at home.  They are 11-24 away and 4-1 at neutral sites. Pitching?  They are led by their ace, Senior submariner Taylor Sewitt.  Sewitt is 11-1 with a 2.40 ERA.  He almost single handedly won the conference tournament last weekend by winning 3 games while throwing 296 pitches over 22 scoreless innings.  He started on Friday, threw 2 innings...

Gamecocks Football: 89 Days Until Kickoff

Today there are 89 days until kickoff. 89 represents the most points scored by a South Carolina team in a single game.  The Gamecocks defeated Welsh Neck Academy on October 6, 1903.  Welsh Neck Academy later became Coker College for Women in 1908.  They haven't fielded a football team since.  I wonder why.

Hey Spurrier, College Athletes Already Get Paid
