I was a naysayer when he was hired but after year 1 I knew He was the right guy. He’s building something special!
Champ is building a squad!
ESPN recruiting analyst Tom Luginbill suggests South Carolina 4-star QB signee should switch positions
A silly argument seeing as how the kid hasn’t been on campus for a full year. Tom has, absolutely, NO idea what this young man is capable of.
Seeing as how this kid is not an official part of the class, how about a retraction article?
After watching what Champ has done over the last two years, and seeing the roster he’s done it with, I have to agree with your statement.
Agreed... but my focus is these Gamecocks! I’m hoping their youth, combined with the second game of the season, will give us an edge. I know on paper they’re more “talented” (e.g. higher rated recruits), but I think our guys have come a long way and have matured in the past 2 years.
Hopefully preseason love can be handled better under Champ. Last time we got National love under Spurrier, that DT lead squad, the defense payed an egg all damn season! Hope Champ keeps the coaches and players focused. I think this team, with our elder statesmen, is more than capable of beating UGA that second weekend. But if we’re reading headlines and believing we’re good, instead of having the mindset that we’re going to PROVE that we’re good, UGA will beat us by 3 TD’s.
Can’t lie... I was bummed when we went 0’fer with the big time, Carolina d-line recruits last year. But Champ is doing his thing with this one!
He’s had his elite moments, so you can ask the question “can he be elite”. He’ll be elite once he’s more consistent throughout games and over the course of an entire season.
Not a northern guy but that’s where all of his recruiting contacts are. He would absolutely crush UCONN and any other school in that area because that’s where he primarily recruits. Hope he stays but he may be gone. And it would have nothing to do with basketball investments at USC and everything to do with that school being a better fit for him.
Exactly! Saying your players are soft is completly different than drying your coach encourages your fans to spit on opposing players and staff.
I think our opportunity to win the East is next year. You guys are loosing a good bit and freshman tend to take a minute to adjust to GE college game. I think we could win in Athens but we’ll have to strike early and often, and hope the moment is too big for your young’uns.
Couldn’t agree more. It’s more mental with them than anything else now. Hopefully now that the core of the squad are Juniors they’ll be more mentally tough that game.
This is exactly what i’ve been saying to the naysayers. BMac needed the first half of that game to get his feet under him. Once that happened he made some adjustments and called, what I thought was, a really good second half. He seems to be a guy who gets better!
Let's not go #VolTwitter on Briles just yet. FAU had a vetting process that he successfully passed. He's not been implicated in anything other than allegedly saying some really improper things to a recruit about race and women. Fact is most people operate the way their environment operates. If he is under Champ's culture I think there is a snowballs chance in hell that anything that happened at Baylor happens in Columbia. Champ just seems to have a totally different mindset. Personally I'd rather see the OC gig go to McClendon but think Briles could be a better hire. If anything hire Briles, have McClendon learn that offense, and if Briles doesn't get it done give the reins to McClendon (sooner rather than later) and be done with it.
I think BMac did a good job calling the plays. He got off to a rough start due to lack of execution on our part. The thing that got me was his adjustments in the 3rd quarter. UM was bringing the house down the middle so instead of running the ball up the middle he decided to throw some WR screens which opened up the rest of the offense for us. I m fine with BMac because he showed, in 1 game, what Roper didn’t in 2 full seasons. He’s familiar with the roster and his play calling will only get better. Is there a better OC out there, sure there is. There were better HC’s out there when we hired Champ too! We see how Champ is evolving as a HC and I think BMac, with his interim HC experience at UGA and his play calling abilities, will evolve into a great OC and HC. We have an outstanding staff in Columbia right now and I want To keep it together. The dead weight has been released!
South Carolina takes advantage of Michigan meltdown to win Outback Bowl, ends Big Ten’s undefeated bowl season
There was no meltdown. We made halftime adjustments and we made plays when they didn’t. USC WON this game!
You play 2 half’s for a reason. GREAT halftime adjustments by Coach Mac!
Rick Sandidge... 4-star Gamecock legacy pit of Charlotte, NC.
Cause we have been zeroes in and him and not looking at other kids until now. Same thing with Tindall.
Kirby seems to think he’s big enough.
Must mean Rick is headed to UGA.
Had to be done. 107th offense in the country is flat out unacceptable.
Kid is a baller and i’m more than happy that he’s coming back. In the same breath football players have shorter professional careers and Deebo is a really great player who should be getting paid for his talents next year. Hoping he stays healthy and is a top-10 pick in 2019!
I hope the medical staff gets this right. Deebo is NFL ready but i’d Rather him not play and blow up the combine, then play and risk re-injuring that leg.
I hope the defense plays this way next week. We’re SO inconsistent.
Nothing but love for this kid. Wish he was still a Gamecock.
