Today, Columbia. Tomorrow, the world.

I notice there’s already some chatter in the comment thread about what sort of record we can expect out of the Dawgs in Kirby’s first season.  That’s fine, but based on what South Carolina President Harris Pastides had to say about his new head coach, you guys seriously need to up your expectations game.

USC’s boss, president Harris Pastides, is not willing to wait long for the football team to rebound.

“So is it where we want to be today? No,” Pastides told The State after the former Florida coach was introduced Monday. “But I’m not buying into a three- or five-year turnaround. I want to be back to success next season.”

What does success look like next year?

“Competing for the SEC Eastern (division) championship. I think that’s got to be the proximal goal. Anything less than that to me wouldn’t feel right as a fan. I think given the state of the SEC East without necessarily a consistent, dominant team over the last few years, I think that’s within sight. Coach is going to tell us what his goals are. I’m talking more as a fan about it.”

After Muschamp’s first season, Pastides wants the Gamecocks vying for the SEC title and a spot in the national playoffs.

Well, now.  This is gonna be fun to watch.

UPDATE:  Boom’s got his work cut out for him on the recruiting trail.

Steve Spurrier is a legend and he took the Gamecocks to heights they couldn’t have achieved without him, but he also left the cupboard pretty bare when it comes to roster and current recruiting. The Gamecocks are currently ahead of only Vanderbilt in SEC recruiting for 2016. Coastal Carolina and Georgia Southern have more top 20 South Carolina commitments than South Carolina right now.

I predict great things are coming to Columbia.

With keen insight like this, how could they not?

Sounds like an inverted Spurrier jape.

UPDATE:  Well, one thing hasn’t changed.

He still likes to show his ass about UGA in public.  I guess he thinks this wins him brownie points with the fan base.

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

I’m so amazed by this decision that I think I’ve lost my capacity to mock it.

Barring a last minute, Cleveland Browns assistant Kurt Roper is expected to be named offensive coordinator at South Carolina by new head football coach Will Muschamp.

The 43-year old Roper was offensive coordinator at Florida in 2014…

Florida finished twelfth in the conference in total offense in 2014.

I can’t help but wonder if Boom told the AD during the interview process that he planned on bringing Roper back.  Wow.

In Sakerlina, more and more, it’s looking like Boom, MF.

Bruce Feldman reports that Rich Rodriguez turned down an offer to succeed the OBC, so it appears ‘Cock Nation turns its lonely eyes to Agent Muschamp.

Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp has agreed in principle to be South Carolina’s new head coach, according to a source. According to the source, the deal is “all but done.”

Muschamp would return to a head-coaching role after one season coaching Auburn’s defense. Under Muschamp, the Tigers improved their yards allowed per play from 5.7 to 5.5 and held opponents to 21 points or fewer five times but went a disappointing 6–6 this season.

Prior to Auburn, Muschamp coached Florida for four seasons, compiling a 28–21 record, including a 17–15 mark in SEC play. He led the Gators to an 11–2 campaign and a Sugar Bowl berth in 2012 but won just 10 games over the next two years and was fired at the end of the ’14 season. Muschamp would now annually go head-to-head against his former school and his successor, Jim McElwain, in the SEC’s East Division.

Hard to see how this isn’t good news for Georgia.  Muschamp knows how to recruit Florida.  And Gus has to go find another defensive coordinator now, something that probably won’t be an easy sell.  (Although Jeremy Pruitt might be a match made in heaven in the land of second chances.  I wonder what Trigga Tray would think of that.)

But, yes, if the rumors that Boom was Kirby Smart’s first choice to run Georgia’s defense next season are true, he’ll have to find a Plan B.  He’ll manage.

Speaking of second chances, I guess Columbia is the place where ex-Gator coaches go to… whatever.  McElwain can take some comfort in knowing he’ll have a place to land if things ever go south with Florida.

UPDATE:  This is getting better.  Boom is in the process of blowing up Auburn’s defensive staff.

Secondary coach Travaris Robinson will follow defensive coordinator Will Muschamp to South Carolina, where he will be defensive coordinator, AuburnUndercover has learned.

Robinson, a former All-Southeastern Conference Auburn safety, followed Muschamp from Florida to Auburn a year ago. Robinson was offered a raise and a contract extension to stay at Auburn. It is not clear if he was offered an opportunity to be defensive coordinator.

Muschamp, named Auburn defensive coordinator last Dec. 12, will be introduced Monday as the head coach at South Carolina.

Defensive assistant Lance Thompson also has an offer from South Carolina. It is not certain whether he will take it.

Both Robinson and Thompson are great recruiters.  Gus is gonna have a major rebuild problem on his hands if both leave.

Say anything, Will.

How much does Boom want the South Carolina job?  Well, he appears to be pulling out all the stops.

Man, this is like seeing what the Soviets did to Stalin after he died.
