COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina senior guard A.J. Cann and junior tailback Mike Davis received Preseason All-America accolades from Athlon Sports.  Cann is a preseason first-team honoree with Davis a preseason third-team selection.  South Carolina opens the 2014 season on Thursday, Aug. 28 hosting Texas A&M at Williams-Brice Stadium.

Cann, a 6-4, 311-pound offensive guard from Bamberg, S.C., was named to Steele’s first-team All-America and first-team All-SEC squads. A team captain and leader of the offensive line, Cann owns a team-high 38 starts over the past three seasons.

Davis, a 5-9, 223-pound junior from Atlanta, earned a spot on Steele’s third-team All-America squad and was a second-team All-SEC selection. He was a second-team All-SEC pick last season after rushing 203 times for 1,183 yards (the fourth-highest single-season total in school history), with 11 touchdowns.

Two weeks ago Athlon’s released the Preseason All-SEC teams with six Gamecocks honored.  Cann was a first-team pick with Davis a second-team choice, senior offensive tackle Corey Robinson a third-team selection and junior wide receiver Shaq Roland receiving fourth-team recognition.  On defense, sophomore linebacker Skai Moore earned preseason second-team all-conference honors with sophomore placekicker Elliott Fry a third-team specialist.

Preseason awards… what the fuck is that? Is this like saying Clowney will be Superbowl MVP this year?

Don’t really care, preseason awards are useless. An award received before you even step foot on the practice field.

That’s kind of what we Gamecocks have been saying about you Tigers with all your recruiting rankings BS. They really haven’t done that much for you, so either they really are BS or your coach sucks.

Ah yes, the if you every even think about saying something negative about Dear Dirtpecker, you’re automatically a Tater. I wonder if Tater fans are the same, if you say something against Dear Tater you’re labeled a Dirtpecker, it’s no wonder this state is as fucked up as it is with the amount of mouth-breathers here.

I’m sure you were finely educated in another state, but you should use “number”, instead of “amount”, in your last sentence. It’s a common mistake.

Squishy123 June 24, 2014 at 4:26 pm

Well I don’t write for a living, amounts… I mean numbers are more my specialty.

numbers are more my specialty.

No, we have all just read your bullshit on here long enough to know you really are a Tiger fan, just too damn embarrassed lately to say it. You make us laugh. We might give you some respect if you didn’t try to hide the fact. That is what makes you a little bitch.

Squishy123 June 24, 2014 at 4:24 pm

You laugh because you likely have the intelligence of a infant and things like people clapping your hands for you make you laugh.

Squishy is my bitch June 25, 2014 at 8:55 pm

Dumbest thing ever said on this site, and with GrandTango on here that is saying a lot! Don’t try so hard bitch, you might pull something.

Squishy123 June 26, 2014 at 9:11 am

You do realize that nobody cares what you say, in fact I’m the only person to ever respond to one of your ignorant comments. And I do that just as a courtesy, I really could give a fuck what you have to say. Maybe you could go hang out on GrandTango’s blog, Emily needs some company over there.

Squishy is my bitch June 26, 2014 at 9:33 am

Someone’s a touchy little bitch aren’t you? And why would they reply when I direct it at you only? Holes in your argument you little bitch.

TontoBubbaGoldstein June 24, 2014 at 8:27 am

Yes.

Yes, it does make TBG feel better.
