Spurrier ‘good to go’ despite Gamecocks’ subpar season

Steve Spurrier said Monday he will return as South Carolina’s coach in 2015 after the Gamecocks stumbled this season. “I’m in. I’m in,” the 69-year-old Spurrier told The State newspaper. “We had some down times and some of this, that and the other, but we’ve got a lot of good players on the way.” The Gamecocks started the season ranked No. 9 after three... 

Gamecocks seniors out in style in win over Jags

A stout defensive performance from South Carolina (6-5) would more than make up for its five turnovers, as it held South Alabama (6-5) to just 289 yards of offense and forced five turnovers of its own in a 37-12 win Saturday afternoon.

Gamecocks use comeback magic to beat Gators in OT

After enduring so many heartaches for the season, it would be South Carolina (5-5, 3-5 SEC) that would play the role of spoiler Saturday afternoon, beating the Florida Gators (5-4, 4-4 SEC) 23-20 in overtime. Dylan Thompson would keep it on a read option from four yards out to shock The Swamp and send the Gamecocks home a winner. With under three minutes to play in the game, South Carolina was faced... 

South Carolina basketball: What to expect this season

South Carolina basketball fans have plenty of reason to be optimistic about the upcoming season in what will be Frank Martin’s best team since arriving in Columbia. And that optimism has nothing to do with five-star shooting guard Perry Dozier’s commitment to the Gamecocks yesterday. Due to injuries this offseason, Martin will have just 10 scholarship players (and just one senior) at his...

Gamecocks blow another late lead in OT loss to Vols

Despite a career night from sophomore wide receiver Pharoh Cooper, South Carolina fell to Tennessee, 45-42, at Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturday night.

After a 15-yard pass to Cooper, the Gamecocks...
