Now that there is a more forgiving and happy/uplifting attitude around here ( maybe its the Christian heat wave moving throughout the board lately. I was catholic but now I feel a bit lost) it is time for me to make a statement. Jbkingmancock and creator of " Bigger News to Come" - I forgive you. You have more knowledge than me regarding Gamecock football and I would like to have more updates from you or whatever john doe knows something I don't. I don't have the time but I wish I could devote more of my day to dig on Wikipedia and scavenge through Gamecock archives and sneak into the football lockers, hack into their FB and Twitter accounts and dig up scoops of information that would me meaningless to u all I'm sure. That's why I appreciate coming on here and have gcock friends who share their golden inside info. Stay gold insiders, stay gold.
After the Carlos Dunlap fiasco, I completely stopped following recruiting. I was angry at you jb, but not necessarily at you, the person. ( i don't even know your name. I am Bryan by the way, if you care) I was angry at the fact that we missed on a prospect that was supposedly awesome and and what I believed to be 130% committed to us. Then we know what happened, and I started a thread on GCC titled "Smaller News to Go". I was being childish and a bit sophomoric, and the thread got somewhat out of control.
Now that I have spoken with my younger brother and he enlightened my mind about how Lawing did what he did, Carlos was a silent to us the whole time, Carlos, being a kid, changed commitments bc of act aforementioned, I feel a little bad about being mean hearted towards yourself, or any insider really, if I was at any time mean or disrespectful of Tony and JC at GCC I apologize to you as well.
I hate apologizing but I will do it when necessary. I'll now just sit back and read and hopefully enjoy all of the insider articles and nuggets that you guys provide. Nobody is perfect, we all agree. But I go to no other gamecock sites but this one and I've been pretty well educated for the past few years regarding gcock football.
Thanks for that :)
Bryan, I don't know you but perhaps it would be more appropriate for you to ASK for forgiveness rather than offer it to someone who did nothing to you. However, the continual assaults on our insiders caused many of them to stop posting...I'm thinking of 'Finn and JB in particular, and WE ALL lost because they quit posting.
Bryan, you and many others owe JBK an apology for the post Dunlap fiasco attacks many many years ago. First off, I know tons of hard core Gamecock fans and JBK loves the Gamecock program more than any human I know. He is personal friends with many of the current and past coaches and has been for years and years..He is a Golden Spur contributor$$ and has traveled with the team for years. He and JC are great friends. He heavily lobbied to bring Tony to TBS. Bottom line is when he shares info on this board it is out of his love for our program. We are ALL apart of Gamecock Nation and should not eat our own..EVER!!. Trust the Visor...when all else fails, simply keep repeating this to yourself. Anyway, there is no reason to bring up the crazy details of the Dunlap situation, except to say there was a very very good reason why Brad got taken out of the lowcountry as his recruiting teritory and was taken off the road for a while after that that year.. I wish Brad the best and welcome Deke. Itsthe GREATEST time ever to be a Gamecock....lets enjoy it fellas!!!
i see what u are saying. i made that post on mobile and i cant edit a true one time apology. I cant apologize for the years that have passed but i have come full circle and understand that all of you who have inside knowledge or work for this site are putting your names on the line for 18 year old kids. must be rough out there but i will just listen, judge for myself, but u wont hear me cry ab recruiting or miniscule position coach changes. JBKing- will you please accept my apology?
Ill wait by my computer desk for hours if i must.....

Thanks for your response...I acknowledge that you did, in fact apologize toward the end of your post. The beginning was what I took issue with. Believe me, I have never had any insider knowledge. Even though I have been a member here for a few years, I have only posted a very few times. I just really miss some of those guys who provided us with "the scoop". I wish they would come back.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
I don't know JBK but that is how I saw him and still do. I don't understand how more people could not have seen that in him. Good post!!!
I greatly miss the Bigger News to Come threads. They were great. My favorite clue was for Chris Culliver which was Gulliver's Travels..

Yeah that was alot of fun and we had so many guys that participated. Maybe BNTC will surface again... lol
Pretty simply put what some fans fail to realize is a recruit can tell SOS he's coming dead solid (SOS is a pretty good source?) and flip on signing day. These are 18 year old kids getting pulled all over the place and can make a decision based on a Chi-Fila- a or about anything else.
