Friday morning buffet

Cold day, warm buffet.

  • Here’s a look at what Trent Thompson might bring to the table.  (By the way, can we stop with the “Ray Drew was a bust” crap?)
  • Bill Connelly drops his big ass spread sheet of 2014 receiving stats on us.  And, no, you won’t find any of Georgia’s guys lurking near the top of the list.
  • Regardless of where you think the truth may lie between Jameis Winston and the woman who claims he raped her, the idea of students gathering on FSU’s campus to celebrate Winston by calling her names ought to be a head shaker.
  • The Big Ten supports an early signing period, but with a caveat from a number of its head coaches that it should be accompanied by the implementation of early official visits.
  • Another tax front to open with collegiate athletic departments? (h/t Hogbody)
  • Turnover at South Carolina “… at least 36 percent of the Gamecocks scholarship roster will be first-year players. Including players who redshirted last season, 39 of the 85 players on the team will have never played a snap for South Carolina.”
  • The spread spreads – from high school.
  • “It’s a big deal to be the first to offer.”

‘Cocks clearing space

South Carolina, what in the wide, wide world of sports is going on?

Linebacker Marcquis Roberts will not be back with the South Carolina football team and is expected to transfer, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Roberts is the 10th scholarship player to leave the Gamecocks since the end of the 2014 season.

One of those is Mike Davis, who’s going pro, so that’s no big deal, but some of those others, like Roberts, who started six games last season, played.

Is there that much dead wood in Columbia the OBC needs to toss?  Or is there something else happening?

UPDATE:  Roster management.

I guess that’s part of what the NCAA means when you commit to a school, not the coach.

UPDATE #2:  Still goin’.

Cutting edge

Leave it to Steve Spurrier to innovate:  with the hiring of his second (!) defensive coordinator, he’s now the only coach in the country with two defensive assistant coaches making $700,000 or more.

“If I need to add a guy or two to the staff, I’ll do it.”

So, Steve Spurrier did.
