TEXAS A&M LAYS LONE STAR-SIZED BEATDOWN ON SOUTH CAROLINA

University of South Carolina head football coach Steve Spurrier made fun of Texas A&M’s schedule during the offseason … but the No. 20/21 Aggies had little trouble dispatching the No. 9 team in the nation on the road Thursday night.

In the season opener for both teams (and their first-ever meeting) head coach Kevin Sumlin‘s offense steamrolled a hapless South Carolina defense – which surrendered a school record 680 yards en route to a 52-28 blowout loss (the Gamecocks’ first defeat at home since losing to Auburn in 2011).

That’s right … 680 yards.

“That team is so much better than us, it wasn’t funny,” Spurrier said after the game.

That’s for sure …

Just like that … the nation’s longest home winning streak is over.  And more importantly, the Gamecocks’ preseason SEC championship hopes appear to be nothing but pipe dreams.

And the inaugural college football playoffs?  Which the Gamecocks seemed well-positioned for given their No. 4 national ranking at the end of 2013?

Yeah … somebody cue Jim Mora …

Ouch …

Clearly life after Jadeveon Clowney (the No. 1 pick in the 2014 draft) looks like it’s going to be pretty brutal for the Gamecock faithful.

Thursday night’s beat down marked the first time since the 2010 SEC championship game (against Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton and eventual national champion Auburn) that a South Carolina defense had given up more than 50 points in a game.  Of course if Gamecock defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward‘s unit doesn’t make some major adjustments, expect more throttling ahead.

In his first collegiate start, Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hill picked the Gamecocks apart – completing 44 of 60 passes for a school-record 511 yards and three touchdowns.  His favorite target?  Senior wideout Malcome Kennedy – who hauled in 14 passes for 137 yards.

The son of former Chicago Cubs pitcher Ken Hill led the Aggies on a nine-play, 67-yard touchdown drive to open the first half … and kept pounding away drive after drive.  Using an up-tempo, spread formation office the Aggies scored on eight of their twelve drives – and two of the four times they failed to score it was the clock, not the porous Gamecock defense, that stopped them.

Limbaughsaphatkhunt August 29, 2014 at 12:38 am

Hard to say. We’ve got our own problems to worry about and we’ll see what we’re working with come Saturday afternoon. I’m fairly concerned about Clemson’s offense and although our D is pretty good, Gurley ran over us like a Mack truck last year in Death Valley.

Now the dawgs have Keith Marshall back to assist with the running duties among an otherwise balanced offensive attack. Their defense is nothing to sneer at either and to top it off it’s their home opener/revenge game “twixt the hedges”. To be honest, I would not be the least bit surprised if Georgia easily covered the 7.5 points against Clemson…but one can still hope and dream for the upset.

The Colonel August 29, 2014 at 12:40 pm

No, he helped found the place (and Wofford as well) – ever heard of Tillman Hall? The iconic Clemson “photo shot” of the clock tower is Tillman Hall, named for the noted white supremacist, racist and lynch mob leader who also happened to be a former Democrat governor of our fair state. One of his notable quotes: “…”We have done our level best [to prevent blacks from voting] … we have scratched our heads to find out how we could eliminate the last one of them. We stuffed ballot boxes. We shot them. We are not ashamed of it….” then there’s this gem, “… [the black man] must remain subordinate or be exterminated…”.

I bet the girl (USC student) who was shot and paralyzed in 5 points last year would agree with him.

I mean crap, we’re not even in the same conference, so why would this Gamecock not want the Tigers to win except for when we play them?… this crazy recruiting advantage argument is overhyped IMHO.

GAME SUMMARY:

Liz Gunn arrived outside Williams-Brice Stadium at 3:30 pm wearing a wide horizontal striped garnet, black and white sun dress. The sundress made going to the little girls room easier in addition to any horizontal activities. The garnet was a little off and could pass for maroon which in the end helped preserve her dignity.

Underneath she wore granny panty briefs to reduce wedging and needed adjustments. The briefs were orange with white tiger paws just to cover all the bases. Liz did a lot of walking, step climbing, standing and sitting. To make it more comfortable she put Band•aid Friction Blocker on her feet and inner thighs. This also made any horizontal activities much more comfortable. Liz was quoted saying “If the Cockaboose is a rock’n don’t come a knock’n.”

In my judgements Liz was “smokin hot”. The final score was 10, 10 on the “Hot – Crazy Matrix”.

Ward should be fired!! He doesn’t know crap about defensive football strategy. He had his linebackers completely out of the game all night. Leaving his outnumbered 4 down lineman to be crushed. What’s worse??? He never changed out of the rotten defense the whole night. Even when Texas A&M running the same defense saw it wasn’t working for them either, and changed to the Nickel the rest of the game. Thus only giving USC 1 more touchdown the rest of the way. You think Ward would have noticed that A&M was out of this awful defensive setup, and he should change too??? Nope, because Ward is an idiot, who only got by last year because he had 2 of the best defensive lineman in the United States, both of which are going great this year in the NFL. They made this fool look good.
