Re: “Steve Spurrier's sudden resignation was all about besting Vince Dooley

If you're answer to the question, "was it classy of him to quit to secure his legacy?" is "I don't know" then you're either not being honest or you don't know what classy looks like.

Re: “The Gamecocks will leave it all on the field against Clemson

You know me all too well, Jaxx.

I regret not having a computer nearby during the game so that I could continue to provide the frequent sports musings that have helped me make a name on this website.

I've been caught red-handed without any real way to defend myself.

Re: “The Gamecocks will leave it all on the field against Clemson

I was pulling for Clemson yesterday, because I'd love for them to bring a National Championship to SC. That said, warwit's post is that of a butthurt fan who didn't have the balls to say a thing until after the game was safely over, probably because he was scared they'd clemson this one.

Athletics aside, which school has stronger academics?

Re: “The Gamecocks will leave it all on the field against Clemson

As a lifelong Clemson fan, I have to say that watching South Carolina put on memorable a display of honor, resilience and even class has me wanting to rethink how I approach the rivalry.

Following such an impressive display of character, I would rate the hilarity of their savior abandoning them midseason to go play golf at about a 95 out of a possible 100. Yesterday, that number had held steady at 98. The Cocks really warmed my heart this afternoon. It's liberating to not carry that hate in my heart anymore.

I was reminded today of what rivalries are truly about and can only hope and pray with every fiber of my being that the South Carolina Gamecocks begin regressing at a historically rapid pace and that their next coach falls flat on his face in seeking to rebuild what's quickly become a trainwreck of a football program.

Re: “Clemson's home schedule ends with a case of the 'blahs'

Good one Warwit. Possibly the best ever. I think this little quote should be applied to any and all of these from now on.

VJ, you should spend less time promoting your fake business and more time preventing your mother from getting fucked by the Oakland Raiders.

Re: “Scene: Dining and Dashing

This is one of the worst articles I have read on this site. Of all the adjectives that could be used in place of large, you chose "big ass". Even if it is in context.

This society is going to hell.

Has a non-white person made it into The Scene? Is the last photo The Scene's Jackie Robinson? Could it be? I can't tell.

Cut will not leave duke for another job, he has heart problems and is older he will never. Coach another team, he is locked in at duke as long as he wants ut

Re: “South Carolina's search for a head coach will continue for some time

David Cutcliffe from Duke would be an excellent candidate for anyone. If he can make Duke what it is today from what it was, then he can coach some football.

Re: “South Carolina's search for a head coach will continue for some time

They need a coach with NFL experience.. Not great.. but what about Mike Smith.. Is he available.. his time at Atlanta was mediocre but could be a great fit for the gamecocks...just a suggestion

Re: “Houston's Tom Herman is the wrong head-coach choice for the Gamecocks

I actually enjoyed this article. Herman does not have any ties this area so the first chance uga or auburn (both jobs could be open next year) is looking for a head coach I can promise you he'll jump ship. I think Herman's a excellent coach that will do well where ever goes but I'm not against the idea of hiring Pep Hamilton. He was hot stuff just last season and he's from Charlotte so I could see him staying in the long run. Until recently sc couldnt recruit a good qb for nothing. What high school qb wouldnt want to play to coach that coached Andrew Luck in high school and the nfl. And we Carolina fans have to remember we're one bad hire away going back to complete irrelevancy like before Holts

Re: “Houston's Tom Herman is the wrong head-coach choice for the Gamecocks

and none of you commenting about Herman, being an idiot, or a loser if he bolts after one year, or possibly leaving for more money- would not leave in "faster that a heartbeat" flash if you were given the chance to coach in the SEC, whether it be Columbia West or East.... Yeah, right !!

Re: “Houston's Tom Herman is the wrong head-coach choice for the Gamecocks

What an idiot.

Herman
40-3 as OC at Ohio State
Undefeated as HC at Houston (First Time in School History)
It's not micro-managing.... It is keeping your facilities looking nice since ticket holders and boosters invest their money into helping build this stuff and for recruits coming in.
He had his O-Line moved to first-class on a flight after a win (moved coaches down to coach) because of how well they had played.
He is known as a good recruiter. Been called a good living room guy, requires coaches to meet social media quotas, he is young and energetic.
Leave after one year.... SC can throw about any amount they want at him, and it will be much more than the 1.25 million he is making at Houston. He has an opportunity to get into an SEC program that has shown that they have potential to compete at a high level with the right talent. He would be in a better spot for recruiting (NC, SC, GA, FL, VA, etc) than say Missouri. If he is successful, you give him and the staff raises, increase his buyout. Why would he want to go somewhere with high expectations when Carolina would keep him as long as they want with some 8 or 9 wins seasons, and the occasional 10,11, or more, and a win against Clemson (let's say every other year).
Hey bud, Houston isn't a top tier job. Going undefeated won't get them in the playoff. Why not take a chance somewhere else. Could he ditch town... yes, but A big buyout can go buy your university another top tier coach if the right school wants to pay you. Look how McIlwain did an Colorado State with that buyout. Florida really had to talk to CSU to get them to a reasonable agreement.

You should go back to school and learn how to write. This is quite possibly the worst article I've read about anything in a long time. The points to back up your opinion are absurd.
