Found August 12, 2012 on Leftover Hot Dog:
The South Carolina Gamecocks held their first scrimmage of 2012 yesterday and here are 12 things you did not hear from the scrimmage:12. Spurrier throwing a straw hat...I know it was a weak start but the visor talk is played out.11. Flea Flicker worked...come on, it is a glorified practice and those things you don't do.10. Talk of Paul Ryan...yes, he was the talk of Saturday but not at this practice.9.   The O Line is a concern...those days at USC are done. This O Line is SEC battle tested and ready.8.  Will Miles be back...Kenny Miles will be back for 2012 so don't ask.What will the Ellis Johnson defense look like...first, Ellis is gone and the new man in town is Lorenzo Ward so get it right.

Marcus Lattimore sholdn't surprise anyone.  In his freshman year he got nearly every carry near...

Gamecocks Football: 19 Days Until Kickoff

Today there are 19 days remaining until kickoff. 19 is the South Carolina record for touchdowns scored in a season.  Marcus Lattimore set the record in 2010.  It could have probably been even higher had he not gotten hurt and missed some games.  The record was helped by Coach Spurrier's determination to run the ball when facing short yardage and the fact that Lattimore was...

Gamecocks Football: 18 Days Until Kickoff

Today there are 18 days remaining until kickoff. 18 is the number of games South Carolina has won against Wofford.  The Gamecocks and Terriers have played 22 times, but usually the games are close.  Once again Wofford is on the schedule this season, and once again it is a mistake.  USC plays the Terriers and their triple option offense the week before Clemson.
