I'll be glad to see Shaw's name up in the Stadium as the QB with the most wins ever at SC.

IMO, both Shaw and Lattimore have joined Big George on the Gamecock Mount Rushmore.

Most popular is not a question of which one, because as a gamecock fan or supporter you have a favorite. For example it is not question that the ESPN daily of Clowney and the ESPY award makes Clowney the most popular in School history. Not to mention the number of #7's sold. So as a Gamecock Grad, Gilmore, Lattimore, Clowney, Shaw, Ingram, Roland, Ellington, Jeffery, etc in this era are all equally popular, and more important WINNERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

maybe we should have a thread listing only the elite and have us vote on various names that posters bring up......I'm guessing there are approximately 7-10 all time greats.

Can I get a Ryan Brewer? He was extraordinary, and one of the very best in my estimation. Yes, we've had some incredible success recently but this kid was a major difference maker.

Athletic scholarship students should include a basic course in finance so they are better prepared in case of career ending injury.
You cant fault Lattimore for turning pro when he did. Lattimore was not going to be abe to play this year anyway, so his best option was to go into the draft. That way he could be getting paid while he was rehabing in great rehab enviorment. Plus I am sure the 49ers have a excellent training and medical staff. I am surre Lattimore will still earn his degree on his own time, I bet his mom will see to that.

Hats off to both guys though. The were both a class act and did alot for the University. Even though Lattimore is my favorite Gamecock at the same time Shaw is right up there too. You could not have asked for anybody better too represent the Gamecocks than these too. Good luck to both in the NFL

Well said.

I agree wholeheartedly.

For me...my all time favorite Gamecock Football player is Brad Edwards, with Connor a close second.

Will they do that? I would love for it to be done. I wasn't sure if game wins were considered a stat unless it was for a coach. It would be great if they do this.

Its a 3-way dogfight for "most popular Gamecock", but....

I think Shaw is most popular in SC, amongst fans in this state.

But outside of SC, Clowney is the most popular.

I'd say Shaw is the most beloved Gamecock, with Lattimore a close 2nd.

Far more people know Clowney....but don't necessarily love him. "The Hit" is the reason why.
