The South Carolina football season is getting closer and this Gamecocks blog is beginning to develop that itch again. You know, the one that can only be satisfied by "Sandstorm" in Williams Brice. Putting it simple, we are ready for the 2012 USC football season.The other day, someone asked about who is the Gamecocks "ace in the pocket?"You know what we mean right? That is a poker term that generally means their is a secret winning strategy known to the holder of the card but not yet played yet. So who is the Gamecocks "ace in the pocket?"According to most online poker sites, the Gamecocks are set to win at least 8 games but stand a chance to win the SEC east if things can fall into place for Spurrier's squad. Having a "ace in the pocket" is just the thing that can bump the Gamecocks into the SEC championship and win 10+ games again. So who is that player....We would say K.J. Brent.Much attention on incoming freshman Shaq Roland and justifi...

Gamecocks Football: 41 Days Until Kickoff

Today there are 41 days until kickoff. 41 was the number of rushes against Georgia last season.  The Bulldogs are supposed to have a stout defense this season.  They had better if they're going to win in Columbia.  Last season they gave up 253 yards and 6.2 yards per rush.  (Of course Melvin Ingram's fake punt didn't hurt either.) 41 may sound like a lot of rushes...

Do You Agree? Gamecocks Second in SEC East
