Gamecocks, Gators set the table for SEC East

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- It's hard to know with Steve Spurrier. The way he hems and haws, touching his hair and fidgeting like a man with an overactive prostate, it's tough to tell if his ramblings are serious or if he's just killing time and filling air. This time when he said, "We've got a pretty good team: maybe not a great team but a good team," he was obviously...

Kirk Herbstreit is startled by a rooster

Lee Corso picked the South Carolina Gamecocks to beat the Georgia Bulldogs today on College GameDay. Herbstreit was terrified when Corso brought a live rooster on the set. His reaction is priceless.

There’s no way to sugarcoat it: South Carolina’s 35-7 win over Georgia on Saturday night wasn’t just a one-sided beat down, but one of the most emphatic wins any college football team has had during the 2012 season. From the first snap of the game until the final whistle, the Gamecocks were bigger, stronger, faster and tougher, taking a 21-0 lead after a few short minutes...

Spurrier steadying No. 3 South Carolina

Steve Spurrier likes what undefeated South Carolina has accomplished so far. He knows, though, the third-ranked Gamecocks have plenty of games left that will determine how special the season turns out.

Ranked No. 3 And I’m Proud to Be a Gamecock

The South Carolina Gamecocks are ranked No. 3 in this week’s AP Poll and I could not be happier. Simply put, it is “Great to be a Gamecock.” It has been a long road for the USC football team and for fans of the program. This is the best ranking in the “Steve Spurrier era” and the second-highest ranking in school history; South Carolina reached the No. 2 spot in 1984. Also...

South Carolina Embarrasses Georgia 35-7

South Carolina jumped on Georgia in the first quarter and never looked back. The Gamecocks took the opening drive and went 75 yards on just five plays and never trailed in the game. The most impressive thing about the opening drive was that it was a combination of the pass and the run with Connor Shaw hitting two passes for twenty yards or more. After a long Malcolm Mitchell kick...

This is not the old South Carolina

The Gamecocks have come a long way under the guidance of Steve Spurrier. There have been some bumps along the road but he has the Gamecocks in the national championship talk and that should tell you right there that this is not the old South Carolina.

Georgia Field Report

Saturday night's game was better than many could have dreamed. South Carolina took an early and commanding lead and pounded Georgia into submission. The only blemish on the scoreboard was a face-saving touchdown by UGa in the waning minutes. The Gamecocks dominated the Bulldogs thoroughly and win 35-7. South Carolina's performance was a complete team performance. As...
