Welcome to the VIP Room, a comprehensive report brought to you by the staff of TheBigSpur.com designed to take you behind the scenes of South Carolina athletics.
It has been almost a calendar year since South Carolina lost a game on the football field before the defeat at the hands of LSU last Saturday in Baton Rouge, La. Head football coach Steve Spurrier met with his team on Monday to get past the loss and on to this week’s showdown against No. 3 Florida. What did Spurrier have to say to his team prior to Monday night’s practice?
Speaking of practice, the Gamecocks (6-1, 4-1) have some injuries after a physical contest against the Tigers. Who’s hurt and for how long? Who is practicing on Monday night at the Proving Grounds. Spurrier mentioned on Sunday that running back Marcus Lattimore may miss some time. Is that the case?
Four-star defensive tackle Keith Bryant visited for the Georgia game a couple weekends back and talk about decommitting from Miami quickly began to circulate. What’s the latest and do the Gamecocks have a chance if big-body decides to make a move? What other teams come into play?
Also in tonight’s VIP Room are updates on a handful of four-and five-star prospects from the 2013 and 2014 classes. Get the latest up-to-the-second recruiting scoop from the Gamecocks football program.
Team basketball practice started on Friday and head coach Frank Martin but his team through some long, intense workouts. Get the latest from inside the hoops program and some behind the scenes information and insights in this VIP Room.
The baseball team has finished up five of its six scrimmage weekends and there is about to be some shakeup on the field. Some players are going to start to move around as the coaches have a pretty good feel of where the strengths and weaknesses are on the team. Two starters from last year may be moved while there are also updates on three injuries to major contributors.
There also could be some shakeup in the athletics department. Someone has arrived already, another may be coming soon, and someone else is likely headed out the door.
