South Carolina Seeks Revenge From 2014 Season Opener In Most Expensive Game Of 2015

Steve Spurrier’s 10th season as the head coach of the South Carolina Gamecocks was not one to remember, as the team finished only one game over .500 with their bowl game victory over Miami (FL) in the Independence Bowl. The Gamecocks’ 7-6 overall record, including going 3-5 in the SEC, was fifth-best in a down year for the SEC Eastern division. Three historically successful SEC...

Gamecocks look to make miracle run as SEC Tournament tips off in Nashville

The No. 11 seeded South Carolina Gamecocks and coach Frank Martin will be out to stabilize their largely up-and-down season when they face the Missouri Tigers in the opening round of the SEC Tournament Wednesday night at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Just which Gamecock team will show up seems anyone’s guess. After a 9-3 start to the year, the Gamecocks have struggled to...

South Carolina fans treated to affordable tickets on Senior Night

South Carolina has struggled to put a win streak together during SEC play, and have mainly alternated wins and losses since February. After beating Georgia on January 31st, the Gamecocks lost two in a row, then won, then lost, then won, then lost two in a row, then won. Their last win was on February 28th against Mississippi State at home. The 13-point win was their second-largest...

What If Carolina hosted a Tournament?

Earlier this week when I was writing up the C of C series, I mentioned how nice it was to see a good team coming through Carolina Stadium early in the season.  A few years ago Long Beach State came through for an even more high profile matchup.  Those games are fun, maybe a little too tough and unpredictable for an opening weekend, but fun for the fans and good for the team. USC...

Gamecocks beat Furman 5-2

Tuesday afternoon’s game started out a lot like the first game against the College of Charleston.  Neither the offense nor the defense was especially sharp, and Carolina fell into an early hole. The Paladins led 2-0 headed to the home half of the third inning, and they had chased Matthew Vogel, the Carolina starting pitcher, from the game. From the bottom of the third inning on...

Gamecocks Take Opening Weekend

South Carolina took two of three games from the College of Charleston on Friday and Saturday to win the first series of the season. USC started off slowly, very slowly, on Friday night.  Wynkoop didn’t pitch quite as well as he might have hoped, but that was a small part of the loss.  The offense was nowhere to be found.  The result was a 6-3 loss and an 0-1 season start for...

Opening Weekend Rotation Set

South Carolina opens its baseball season on Friday, and junior Jack Wynkoop will be on the hill.  Wynkoop, last year’s Saturday starter, started a team high 16 games last season.  He finished 7-6 with a 2.86 ERA. On Saturday sophomore Will Crowe, last season’s Sunday starter, will be on the mound.  Crowe finished last season 8-3 with a 2.75 ERA.  This year Crowe has been...

Gamecocks hire New Co-Coordinator

South Carolina took a big step toward fixing its defensive woes today.  The Gamecocks hired Jon Hoke, recently of the Chicago Bears, to run their defense.  Well, they hired him to be a co-coordinator with Lorenzo Ward.  At the press conference earlier today, Coach Spurrier stated that Hoke would be the primary defensive play caller. Apparently the co-coordinators are going to...

Gamecocks visit Fayetteville for battle with Razorbacks

After South Carolina snapped a four game losing streak in their last game against Georgia, winning 67-50, they will look to capture their second consecutive win when they travel to Arkansas to take on the high-scoring Razorbacks on Tuesday. The home team is coming into the game having just lost to Florida, snapping their three game winning streak. With a get-in price of $15 and average...

Maybe Next Year

I called last night’s game against Tennessee a must win, and despite a valiant comeback, South Carolina was not able to win it.  With that loss USC is now 1-4 in conference with two home losses and the meat of the schedule coming up.  They aren’t technically out of the running for the NCAA tournament, but the turnaround would need to be more than amazing for them to get back...

Another Must Win

Last week, we said that South Carolina needed to beat Alabama to keep realistic hopes of making the tournament alive. They did that and then went on the road and lost a very winnable game at Auburn. Now Carolina comes back home to play Tennessee in another must win game. At 1-3 in conference USC's margin for error is getting vanishingly small. They have to win their home games...

Must win Tuesday night

After finishing the out of conference schedule on a high note, the Gamecocks have floundered in conference play and face a must win situation against Alabama on Tuesday night.  If Carolina wants to make it to the NCAA tournament, they can’t afford to lose to the Crimson Tide.  Technically, I suppose it’s not a must win game insofar as the Gamecocks could lose the game and still...

Gamecocks are Also Receiving Votes

South Carolina isn’t yet back in the Top 25, but at the conclusion of non-conference play USC has made enough noise that they are showing up on some voters’ ballots.  Carolina received the 35th most votes in the AP poll and the 37th in the Coaches’ poll. Saturday’s victory over then Top 10 Iowa State in Brooklyn was the catalyst for the jump.  While being in the also receiving...

I Can Watch Basketball Again

I’m not as big a fan of basketball as I am of football or baseball, but I still do like the game, and I watch almost all of South Carolina’s games.  Even when things were going very badly, I still watched most all of the games.  Obviously a losing team isn’t as much fun to watch, and the end of the Horn era wasn’t fun at all.  In fact, it was so bad, it sapped my enthusiasm...
