SC is off the biggest win in Spurrier’s career at SC as they clinched a spot in the SEC Title gm for the 1st time ever with their 36-14 win over FL. RB Lattimore (964, 4.8) rushed for a career high 212 yds as SC dominated with 395-226 yd and 24-11 FD edges. This could be the biggest letdown spot for any team this week as the Gamecocks have in-state rival Clemson on deck. While South Carolina is 7-0 vs Sun Belt tms incl 2 wins over Troy winning by an avg of 31-14, Troy almost upset LSU late in the yr (led 31-3 late 3Q before LSU came back for a 40-31 win a couple years ago. Troy is off a 52-35 upset loss to FIU in which they suffered a 4-1 TO deficit. SC gets the win but this will be closer than what many people think.

Since this game is always played right around Halloween, I think it would be cool if Carolina brought out the all black uniforms and Tennessee brought out the all orange uniforms every year. It would make for some cool hype around the game. What do you think?

Tennessee visits No. 17 South Carolina |

Generating offense has proven to be problematic for Tennessee thus far, as the team is only averaging 21.4 ppg and 320.9 total ypg. The ground attack has been rather weak, accounting for just 121.3 ypg at a clip of 3.8 yards per carry. … Switching focus to South Carolina, it played without standout tailback Marcus Lattimore against Vanderbilt, but is expected to be back in action this weekend. Lattimore has rushed for 538 yards and 10 touchdowns to date, and the Gamecocks are averaging 29.6 ppg and 404.0 total ypg.

South Carolina Football: 5 Gamecocks Who Must Step Up Down the Stretch | Bleacher Report

This would be a very different article if it were about those who must continue to step up. You’d see the names of Marcus Lattimore, Brian Maddox, Tori Gurley, Alshon Jeffery, DeVonte Holloman, Ladi Adjiboy, and the incredibly underrated Devin Taylor..

Difficult to predict Lattimore’s return | The Post and Courier

Now I do not have any direct knowledge of the specific medical details of Lattimore’s injury, but I don’t think it is at all surprising that his status is uncertain.

A high ankle sprain involves not only the normal ligaments on the outside of the ankle but also the ligaments between the tibia and fibula above the ankle. This injury would likely keep Lattimore out 4 to 6 weeks.

You might recall an article we linked to yesterday here at the The Daily Feed about South Carolina’s tradition of playing “Thus Spake Zarathustra.” Well, fan of the blog, Chuck B, wrote me to assuage my confusion over the title of that fine piece. Let it never be said that Garnet & Black Attack doesn’t appreciate user-generated content!

I emailed to chime in on the “Thus Spake Zarathustra” vs “Also Sprach Zarathustra” bit you posted. You are correct in that the English translation of that Strauss piece’s title is Thus Spake Zarathustra. Also Sprach Zarathustra is the original German title; the German word also is a linguistic false friend to the English word also – they appear to be the same, though they have decidedly different meanings. German and English contain many such false friends: consider the German word Billion, which translates to the English word trillion (the English billion being Milliarde in German). Another more entertaining false friend is Präservativ, which reads (and sounds, when pronounced aloud) like something your Grandmother would use to make jam but, in reality, refers to condoms.
Keep up the good work,
Derek Dooley

The Derek Dooley reference was a nice touch. So there you have it, folks. Thanks to Chuck B for taking a moment out of his day to make us all a little smarter.



Steve Spurrier Weekly Press Conference Quotes & Videos | Gamecocks Online
Not sure I like this. I’m sort of a covert on this issue. Gamecock Man has convinced me that we’re at our best when The HBC is calling the plays. Why mess with it? Of course, maybe Coach Elliot will finally make us commit to the run.

We had a bit of a community system working a little bit. I called a lot of them. I didn’t call all of them, but we have a system there where we’re all on the headset. It was a little different, but not a whole lot different. When we look for a run, Coach Elliott usually looks at what he thinks has the best chance and so forth. I think the coach who spends most of the time with the quarterback probably should be the play caller. G.A. (Mangus) was sort of the main guy there than the rest of us, which was a little different than we’ve been doing, but I like that because he talks to Stephen (Garcia) in between series.

Calling plays is what Steve Spurrier does | ESPN

But now, all of a sudden, with South Carolina poised to make history and the pathway to a first-ever SEC championship game wide open, Spurrier decides the play-calling duties will be more of a “community” effort.

I have to agree. Don’t screw with success (I use that term loosely).

Thoughts on Spurrier and play-calling | Spur of the Moment
Travis Haney chimes in.

Something tells me you might not even notice who’s calling plays with Lattimore in there. And, from what we were told, Lattimore will be a full go Saturday against Tennessee. He practiced Monday. Spurrier said he wasn’t sure whether Lattimore or Brian Maddox would start Saturday. I’d bet on the former. If he’s healthy, start and play him.

Marcus Lattimore expected back for South Carolina this week |
Make it so.

Lattimore to return for Gamecocks | ESPN
I wouldn’t mind giving Maddox the symbolic start to make up for the Vanderbilt game. He deserves it.

There’s a chance that senior Brian Maddox may start against Tennessee after rushing for a career-high 146 yards last week, but Lattimore won’t have to wait long to get into the game.
