THE SECRET TO JAMES FRANKLIN’S SUCCESS?
When the University of South Carolina escaped Nashville, Tennessee last August with a 17-13 season opening win over the Vanderbilt Commodores, we were pretty sure the Gamecocks promising 2012 season was kaput.

The University of South Carolina football team inched up in the polls after this weekend’s 21-7 victory over Vanderbilt in Nashville. The Gamecocks’ win over the Commodores obviously wasn’t particularly pretty, but it was enough to move them up two spots in the Associated Press Top 25 and up three spots in the USA Today/ [...]
In a pair of Southeastern Conference road losses earlier this season, the University of South Carolina football team started strong but couldn’t finish. They flipped that script on Saturday in Nashville, Tennessee – stumbling out of the gate but rallying for a 21-7 victory over the unranked Vanderbilt Commodores.

Is it that time of the month up in the Volunteer State?
