How is our CB situation looking as of right now with who has qualified and who we already had? Also why are we recruiting all these kids who cant even meet very low academic standards? Theyre going to need a lot of help in college.
No, we aren't screwed.

Not screwed. We'll be ok. Step away from the off season cliff.

Ok, so they are being proctored by an NCAA representative today and the results should be known within about 2 weeks. If they make it, they will be in time for Fall practice.

As others said, the second scores they had went up too much from their first attempt.

No need to panic. Spurrier is currently working on a deal, trading a running back to LSU for one of their corners and a future 1st round pick. We'll be fine.

I see no reason to panic, but go ahead if that's what you want to do. If they are retaking it and do what's expected, then we're good to go. I see no reason to worry, but that's the Gamecock way I guess.

When you have to move a guy who has 24 starts at safety to CB, a guy who has been a safety valve and made big plays at safety, you have no depth at all and you are in trouble.

So I agree with you.

Default Re: Are we screwed at CB?

If we don't have any more Freshman coming in, we still have a 3-deep at both Safety and Corner, with some players being interchangeable (like Brison Williams being able to play Safety and Elder being able to play Corner). Gurley, Elder and Marcus are proven Safeties with starting experience. At corner, the Williams brothers - Brison and Rico Mc - are also veterans, even though Brison is at a new position. I think Jamari Smith, DJ Smith and Al Harris, Jr. can all be stars, and no one knows how good Ali Groves can be. We are fine, just can't afford 2-3 injuries.

Chris Clark on 107.5 just verified what was said above. The 3 corner backs have to re-take the test and can still make it in by August.

He also said Al Harris may be the most ready of any corners. DJ Smith might be used at corner as well.

Default Re: Are we screwed at CB?

I know we have two big holes at corner but I don't know if we're "screwed" just yet. Moving Williams over from safety does prove how concerned the coaches are I admit. But hopefully McWilliams is ready to start and guys like Ali Groves are ready to contribute too (along with Harris). I would like to see all these secondary guys qualify so we can get some depth but I don't know if we should expect to see them all play considerably this year being true freshmen. It could hurt us bad in the next few years though. I'm glad we're continuing to recruit and get commits from corners like Fields and so forth.

I said awhile ago we should move Golightly to Safety/DB. We have a lot of fast LBs...might get really interesting come August.

Let's just not use corners. Split the d line out extremely wide, play 5 fast LBs behind that, and have 2 safeties. What could go wrong?
