Dreams of BCS are beginning to invade my sleep as kickoff of Gamecocks football is not just 4 days away.
South Carolina did many things well last season, but on several occassions they turned the ball over too many times. On four seperate occasions USC turned the ball over four times in a game. Not surprisingly, Carolina lsot two of those games: Auburn and Arkansas. The Gamecocks beat East Carolina and Vanderbilt despite the carelessness with the ball. I wonder what last year's score against Vanderbilt would have been but for the four turnovers.

Oh boy...the beginning of South Carolina's 2012 football season is just 3 days until kickoff.
3 is the rank of South Carolina's total defense last season in the SEC. It's also South Carolina's total defense rank in the country. The Gamecocks finished just behind LSU and Alabama. Carolina only allowed 267.7 yards per game. This year's defense will be...
Safety Sheldon Royster has chosen to leave the South Carolina program less than a week from the beginning of the 2012 season. It is unclear where Royster may transfer.

The South Carolina Gamecocks are poised for another great season in Columbia and on that should get a smile from Coach Steve Spurrier. It is amazing how far he has taken this program and the direction it is heading. As that is stated, you have to wonder what are the goals for this team in 2012. Well, here are my goals for the 2012 football squad:1. Win the first game. Set the tone...
We've tried to give all the 2012 Heisman candidates a preseason place to shine with Highlight Monday, but somehow haven't included Marcus Lattimore yet. Unless you count this (sweet dreams, kid). As a true freshman in 2010 Lattimore racked up 1,197 yards and 17 TDs on the ground, and was a legitimate receiving threat out of the backfield with another 412 yards and 2...

Vanderbilt and South Carolina kickoff SEC conference action Thursday night. South Carolina is a 6 1/2 to 7 point favorite in the game that will be played in Nashville. It is interesting that Vegas needs 7 points or less to draw money to the Vanderbilt side of the ledger.
This is a game that South Carolina could lose. The Gamecocks have experienced significant attrition since...

These are my preseason scouting reports. They are meant to just lay a foundation for where these players are going into the 2012 College Football season. Obviously when I do final scouting reports on these players after the season, things will change. No guarantees they will change for the better, and I do my best to be objective and pragmatic. You all may take that as being...
