Yes, that was a season to remember(sarcasm). Gill came here to play for Horn. He thought we would become good, but it didn't happen and he jumped ship asap. He didn't want to play for CFM and he didn't want to play at USC. You guys can spin any which way you want, but that is the truth.

Our basketball program has been in disarray for sometime. A regular season win over #1 Kentucky and one SEC Championship that we didn't follow up on in the Big Dance doesn't change that. The last 20 years can be summed up with two names, Coppin State and Richmond. Every player that signs to play ball at USC knows this. They are playing here to make a change within the program.

I have nothing against Gill. But, I'd rather spend my time praising the players that stuck it out through thick and thin.

HE commited on Oct 27, 2009- Right when we were coming off the 21-10 season. After he committed the 2009-2010 season started.

Some coaches specialize in coaching thinking players, and some coaches specialize in coaching athletes. There is plenty of room in the middle, but CFM is on the far side.

So he verbally committed then, big whoop. He didn't sign his LOI until April of 2011, after 2 seasons of bad Gamecock basketball. He knew what he was coming into and it didn't get better while he was here. The coaching change was an opportunity for him to hit reset.

Don't really know why it matters. He wanted to play for Horn and I don't blame him for wanting to leave when Horn was canned. I don't wish the kid ill will for leaving, but I'm not going to be pulling for him and UVa either. Like someone else said, I simply don't care about what he's done since he's not here anymore.

you realize basketball has an early signing period? He averaged 7.6pts and 4.7 boards as a freshman, he was a good player. Yes he wanted to play for Horn, but we were also doing well when he committed. It doesn't matter anymore. But no need for people to bash the kid.

He chose not to be a Gamecock. He is dead to me.

Yes, I know there's an early signing period. However, that Oct 2009 date would be when he verbally committed as a junior. You can't sign an LOI until your senior year. He signed his LOI in April of 2011 according to 247sports. Between verbally committing and signing the LOI, we had 2 mediocre (bad if you're looking at conference results) years. Nothing is official until signing that LOI and I'm a bit surprised he never reopened his recruitment. Props to him for seeing it through, but he's gone now so whatever.

He choose to come here and because we weren't winning and jumped ship, that means he had no love or respect for the program, University or fans. Glad he is gone but he didn't want to play with a coach that required them to actually bust their ass.

Worked at John Paul Jones Arena at UVA when he came through on his recruiting visit and while he was on his transfer year and the beginning of this year. I knew a couple of the coaches at UVA and they have nothing but good things to say about him. They said he is the ultimate team player and comes from a great family. That he and Malcolm Brogdon were the hardest working players off the court that they had. I don't think he ever really wanted to be at SC which is fine. He's now in a great situation at a great school with a great team. Good on him.

exactly.....he was never going to be good enough to be a top player on a D-1 team...he's a good role player on a good Va team with a really good coach.
