Found November 04, 2011 on Leftover Hot Dog:
Thinking about South Carolina football on a Friday afternoon?  Our friend Steve was and provided some good things to make you go "hmmm" concerning Brandon Wilds and Connor Shaw.  Enjoy this guest blog.....Marcus Lattimore has rushed for a total of 2,015 yards in what amounts to about 18 full games (I'm counting last year's UK & Troy games as "one" full game because he didn't play in the second half of either and not even including the Chik-fil-A Bowl, he got injured so early in that one). This works out to about 111.9 yards per game over his career and 116.9 yards per game this season. His totals and per game averages are both great. We miss him, look forward to having him back after he's fully recovered, and look forward to at least one more year of watching him in a Gamecocks jersey.All that said (other than a 102 yard game against Kentucky between Auburn and Mississippi State), Lattimore was somehow being increasingly neutralized in 3 of hi...

Looking for more of the same from Wilds

Freshman tailback Brandon Wilds made his big debut in Knoxville last week, rushing for over 100 yards against Tennessee’s defense. Running backs coach Jay Graham, who was actually a running back for the Volunteers back in the 90's, was happy with Wilds first career start. The Gamecocks will have to get more of the same from the freshman this weekend at Arkansas.

Swearinger playing with confidence

It's no secret how good the Carolina defensive unit has been this year. For five games it's done everything asked of it, putting the Gamecocks a great position to win each football game. Right in the middle of everything has been junior safety D.J Swearinger.

Quick Look: South Carolina Gamecocks @ Arkansas Razorbacks

Wednesday Grid Update, 11/2

South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw has the ability to extend plays and break down defenses with his scrambles. That might be the toughest test for the Arkansas defense.

When South Carolina travels to Arkansas, many believe that the Gamecocks will have to outshoot the Razorbacks in order to win. A big part of that will be the play of the offensive line to protect quarterback Connor Shaw.
