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.
While we’re sure that this won’t receive any complaints, the VIP Room this week is a heavy dose of football! Get the latest on the quarterback situation heading into this weekend. What are the chances that junior Connor Shaw can play? If he can’t, is Dylan Thompson ready or is there competition for the backup job? Get the latest in this edition of the VIP Room.
Of course, that’s not all. There was only one catch by a tight end in the Vanderbilt game, which is surprising given all of the preseason chatter, but how did the players at the position do throughout the course of the game?
South Carolina has its sights set on four-star defensive tackle Kelsey Griffin but where do the Gamecocks turn if he becomes a Georgia Bulldog? There’s not a bad option at the Gamecocks’ disposal. Find out who, plus some visitors for this weekend’s home-opener against East Carolna.
There are also plenty of notes on basketball, including two names coming to the forefront in the 2013 class on the post. Everyone knows about Sindarius Thornwell and some others being recruited, but who are the big men who are going to get in there and rebound? Also, there’s a big visitor on campus this weekend for the East Carolina game.
South Carolina brought in a lot of versatile players in the 2012 recruiting class. Find out where each of those guys are going to play when fall practice opens on September 14. There are also a few players standing out during group work. There’s also been some buzz about Tanner English becoming a switch hitter this year. True? And if so, why? And is he any good? Plus, get the list of baseball players the coaches will have an eye on at their elite camp this weekend and who is visiting for the football game.
