South Carolina Gamecock fan who appreciates all SEC football.
Redshirt... period. If every other QB gets hurt he plays.
Even while he thinks this is true I wish he wouldn't have said it. I wish he would have said the talent isn't there yet but we can be good. Rather have them motivated.
He's only 1. Hopefully he has leadership skills that will translate well for us. We need a complete group.
I just hope the secondary is much better come fall. If McIlwain is going to be the man he needs to see an SEC caliber secondary day in and day out.
The kid looked good against an atrocious secondary... but hats off to him for taking advantage. Can't wait to see what he looks like against an SEC caliber secondary.
I'm a Gamecock through and through but imho this has disaster written all over it. Kid has 1 year as a starter under his belt and, unless I missed something, didn't win a state title and/or wasn't an overwhelming winner for Alabama's Mr. Football. Word is he struggled with accuracy at the Atlanta Elite 11. What will that turn into when he's in front of 80K at Willy B, or on the road in Death Valley or between the hedges? I'm pumping the brakes on my excitement at the moment and if he proves me wrong I'll be more than happy to eat crow.
What's the writing on the wall?
I expect McIlwain to compete. If he wins the job, great. If he redshirts, even better!
I think we should temper expectations of McIlwain at this point. Other than the kid from UCLA last year I can't think of a true freshman who has started and lead his team to a winning season.

I really wish these kids made better decisions so close to a life changing opportunity.
Why in the world is Shaw campaigning with Rubio? His decision making on the field is unquestioned... but this?!?
He came into a situation with an unproven QB and questions across the board and developed a team, in 1 off season, that put the whammy on FSU. He didn't recruit any of those guys at Houston. He coached them all up and put in schemes that fit what he had best. The guy is, arguably, the best coach in college football right now. Period.
Only 2 teams hands shot at Herman afterHouston put $3M on the table... Texas and TAMU. UGA wasn't a contender because he is getting paid $3M to wait on Texas IN Texas.
This is one of the silliest statements I've seen in a while. Herman is, arguably, the best coach in college football right now. Offensive genius who had an eye on a kick ass d-coordinator and is making it happen at Houston. Be honest about your assessment of him at least.
TheHouston offer came In mid November before the Citadel game. Once he had that offer he was looking for a way out. Herman is from Texas and wants to be in Texas. Houston paying him $3M to wait on Texas or A&M to fire Strong or Sumlin, respectively, is all he needs right now. Best believe his "building" in Houston will be null and void when Texas comes offering.
The only thing that happened was Houston matched our offer. Herman never wanted to leave Texas but $1.2M vs $3M is too much to say no to. When Houston ponied up he was set. Loosing to the Citadel had nothing to do with it.
That would be insane!
Keep him from getting first downs and from scoring TD's and you'll NEVER have to see that dance again. Until then... #KeepPounding #DabOnDemFolks
Muschamp could always recruit. I want to see the on field product. In the meanwhile I'm personally reserving judgement until the end of year two. Until then #SpursUp
I was thinking the exact same thing. He had 1 year at UF... which is no time to develop talent. All you can do is put in what would best fit what you have. Driskell didn't help his cause at all.
