    Matt Pack

    Right now, I am not aware of any recruiting informaton on Matthew but yes, he is one of the more under rated backs in the MIdlands. As for his injury, my understanding is it is a high ankle sprain and yes, it could impact the OW game. I do feel, however, the Falcon defense is strong enough to prevail in that game. OW does have a good freshman running back, small, and they have an athletic quarterback.

    realignment

    The SC State Legislature protects the Charter Schools of this state because they want them here for more choices for parents. A move to do something like making them play above the classification they are in would end up in a discrimination law suit because these are public school kids. Charters are public schools. Not saying I agree with it, just stating a fact.

    realignment

    Going to be interesting to see. There are some schools who will definitely move up - May River is way over 3A numbers right now. The interesting thing is going to be how the committee they formed decides to handle the Charter and private schools. I THINK they believe they can do a formula to make the charters play up but that is a discrimination lawsuit waiting to happen. Those kids in the Charter schools are PULBIC school kids because the charters are PUBLIC Charters. A can of worms is about to be opened.
  4. I heard today that the injury to Jamari Littlejohn, LB, Gaffney, is season ending, which would mean the Shrine Bowl will need to go ahead and name an alternate on the roster. I hate to see this for Jamari. He's a great kid and phenomenal player at the LB spot.
  5. So Justin Fields is taking only online classes at Ohio State. Is this the beginning of a trend/transition for the student-athlete in NCAA sports? Will it come to a point where the kids are not even on campus except at the sports facilities? And I'm not sure of how those things work but is there a potential for cheating on these classes by having someone else do the online work? (I honestly don't know how that works). What are your thoughts?
  6. If you listened to AD Ray Tanner on 107.5 The Game today, it sounds like he is nowhere near talking about Coach Muschamp being on even a lukewarm seat. He said he has the utmost confidence in him, comparing his win total to that of Spurrier and Hotz in the same time period. That is not something that a lot of the Gamecock fans who have been calling for a change wanted to hear. But the reality of this situation is that firing Muschamp prior to season being over would cost 22 million bucks; After December 31st it drops to 18 million. In addition to that money they would have to pay out, you then have the expense of getting the next coach. So is Ray Tanner confident in Muscamps ability to get this ship righted? Or is he confident that he's not going to enterain the idea of paying out a huge payout to make a change? I guess you can take his comments as they come across to you. Another reality, however, and this is just my opinion, is that if this Gamecock team goes 3-9 or worse (and possibly even if they win 4 games) and Muschamp is still at the helm, there is going to be at least a 30 to 40% loss of the 2020 recruiting class. I could be wrong on that but recruiting trends in situations like this prove otherwise. So, it's kind of a "damnded if you do, damnded if you don't" situation. I don't know if Muschamp is a good coach or not. I know he was a hell of a defensive coordinator. But I also know that as a head coach, he has made terrible hires. His two OC hires at SC rank among the worst. I like BMac. He's a good coach. He's over his head as an OC. And why would you, as a head coach of a power-five football program in the SEC, hire a guy with ZERO OC experience as your OC? Makes no good sense. I believe that these guys are, right now, coaching to not lose. They appear to be scared. You can see it in the eratic scheming/plan each game. Anyway, would love to hear the thoughts, constructively, from the Gamecock fans here.

    JB...still on radio?

    I announced on twitter that I've resigned from that show but will continue with the Wednesday show. I have talked to Tim Hill about doing part of the Friday night show by phone and not in studio so that may be a possibility. Just trying to slow down on some of the things I've been doing.
  11. Yes he did. Just days before new coach was named.

    He is going to USC-Sumter to play baseball. He had a preferred walk on at Clemson and SC but I think he wanted to play baseball so we will see what happens. You know, his dad played small school before transferring to Clemson too.
  13. I had heard that. Thank you!
