Re: Spurrier - "I plan to be the Play-Caller again."

Imagine if Spurrier had told the AD "I don't want to call plays and I'm not going to hire an OC either. I'll have a bunch of random coaches decide the plays and I'll listen in." Wonder what we...

Re: Ward breaks down DE position

When Lawing left, our Dline imploded.

EJ was fired after 2 seasons as Auburn's DC??? Auburn's D was much better than SC's in 2014, and yet it saw the need for a change at the DC level. Not sure...

Re: Blake McClain Has Left the USC Program

It's interesting. After the Clemson game, there were rumors that there may have been some issues with team chemistry and there would be a wave of transfers after the season.

Re: Blake McClain Has Left the USC Program

Good thing we waited until after signing day to cut the dead weight. That way we ensure we can't find anyone to fill the spot left open. Probably Spurrier trying to make it look like we lack common...

Re: How South Carolina had the top Recruiting Class in 2015.

Just use whatever formula ensures SC is the best and that's the correct formula!



On a more serious note, I've applied the same formula OP has created for football rankings to the SAT rankings....

Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

Except that's not an appropriate analogy. If you want to go with a similar analogy it'd be this:

Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

I'm confused about your relief that top HS coaches called out OSU/Louisville/Michigan. Clemson and 8 other SEC schools out-recruited us without being called out by top HS coaches. You act as if you...

Re: Official: Jon Hoke to South Carolina

You could be right on this theory. Announcing new d coach too soon after that comment could indicate that a plan of succession was under way when that wasn't intended. I can't remember if he said...

Re: Official: Jon Hoke to South Carolina

Based on that logic, Auburn's class should've fallen apart since they didn't have time to get to know Muschamp when he replaced Johnson. Our class fell apart, theirs didn't. We waited, they didn't.

Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

You're right, recruiting stars is not automatically an indicator of success at the college level. It's a crapshoot to tell whether a 5 star will pan out. That's why prolonged recruiting success...

Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

I think you're right to a degree, but I think knowing not to say certain things to turn recruits off is one of the major parts of being a good recruiter.
