No Will Muschamp For Gamecocks … Now What?

SOUTH CAROLINA FOOTBALL PROGRAM LOOKING FOR ANSWERS … 

By FITSNEWS  ||  Former Florida Gators head football coach Will Muschamp is headed to Auburn to become the Tigers’ next defensive coordinator – a major coup for a program looking to get back into national championship contention in the most difficult division in college football.

Muschamp’s decision to join head coach Gus Malzahn‘s staff surprised many seeing as the University of South Carolina was believed to have the late edge in luring the 43-year-old Rome, Georgia native.

Guess not … instead he signed a three-year deal with Auburn believed to be in the neighborhood of $1.8 million per year.

So why couldn’t South Carolina land Muschamp?

According to our sources, the “head coach in waiting” designation he wanted from the Gamecocks was never on the table.

How come?

“South Carolina already has a head coach in waiting,” a source close to the Gamecock program told FITS, referring to USC wide receivers coach and co-offensive coordinator Steve Spurrier, Jr.  “You can’t offer a man something that isn’t available.”

In addition to his coaching responsibilities, Spurrier Jr. is also South Carolina’s recruiting coordinator – which is a tough job to have at the moment.  At last count the Gamecocks have lost five commitments from their class of 2015 – including a trio of offensive linemen.  Four of those commitments were scheduled to be January enrollees in the program.

It’s in the water system at Willy B. They always wish for a happy ending but only get the rubdown.

Lou Holtz to Skippy Holtz. Didn’t happen. Now, Spurcock Sr. to Spurcock, Jr. Ain’t gonna happen either.

Yeah. Co-Offensive coordinators, with a plus-one in Brandon Streeter? Sounds like an organizational nightmare. Co-coordinators rarely work.

Let’s face it, Muschamp likes orange. Now, all us chickens need to go get a young guy, not well known, with some new, fresh ideas. No brag, no poke, just do it and shut up. There will be plenty of time to gloat when we start winning, again.

Steve Spurrier Jr. Head Coach in Waiting???? This is a joke.
Spurrier Sr. better hire a good DC or he will be gone next year; and if not Ray Tanner will be gone as AD. There are a lot of large donors pissed-off right. Since Tanner has taken over at AD, the baseball and football programs are regressing back to mediocrity.
We are losing top recruits and and have lost the last three Mr. SC Football award winners – two to UGA.
In 10 years at USC, Spurrier Sr. has not recruited ONE 5 star QB and only ONE 4 star – Garcia. This despite having Bennet and Brown at Duke and Johnson, Wuerffel, Mathews and Grossman at UF – all who were ‘world class’ passing QB’s. BTW, Connor Shaw was 3 Star and Dylan 2 star.
This is a classic example of why old coaches need to retire and give the young guys a chance. And by ‘young’, I mean Kliff Kingsbury at Texas Tech not Steve Spurrier, Jr.

Tanner wins two National Championships and they make him A.D. If Spurcock won a Nat. Champ. they’d make him President of the University.

Danny Ford won a National Championship and we made him a legend in his own time. A man has got to know his limitations. So does a Board of Trustees.

In the last two years Carolina has been to the NCAA Tourney including the Super Regional. How is the baseball team “regressing” into mediocrity under Coach Tanner and Coach Holbrook?

I heard those stupid kind of comments about Coach Tanner during his CWS drought btwn 2005 and 2010 from baseball ignorant people who, if they had their way during that time, would have gotten rid of Coach Tanner.

If you’re above a half-assed team you can make the Super Regional, it’s kind of like making a bowl game in football.

Tanner should have never been given the AD position. You can’t hold this job and be buddies with everyone and have the reputation as a nice guy. The job requires being a hatchet man and not giving a fuck about anything but the W-L record and the bottom line.

USCe would be better off with Lane Kiffin than Jr.

The Pirate Bay is an online index of digital content of mostly entertainment nature, where visitors can search, download and contribute magnet links, which facilitate peer-to-peer file sharing among users via the BitTorrent protocol.

The data being shared requires at least one participant in the swarm to have a complete image, or more rarely, a complete image can be obtained by putting together fragments from multiple users in the swarm.

While a member of the swarm may be downloading pieces of the file he needs, he is simultaneously uploading pieces he has already downloaded. Users who have a complete image who remain are called “seeders,” while those who are still downloading needed fragments are called “leechers.”

Download speeds are close to direct download speeds, due to the efficiency of the software.

Microtorrent is a free peer-to-peer bittorrent client which allows you to locate files through a special naming convention, as well as to author files to upload into the net.

Currently, the only thing making sharing in this way totally open and free is that lawyers protecting the intellectual property of their clients will not allow indexers to publish lists of magnet links on the net.

The dark net uses encryption, private IPs and distributed data to avoid being detected, but the walls that keep the lawyers out, keep the average user out too.

Until software is developed that provides anonymity opacity and distributed data sources out of the box, intellectual property advocates will wage a losing battle against peer-to-peer networks.

The sheer number of people in the peer-to-peer community, and the powerful demand for entertainment produces all of the energy necessary to overcome any obstacles presented by rights advocates… that is, until the internet is censored and controlled by government agencies. Today, the irony of democracy is that it costs more money to protect information than the profit that can be extracted from that information so protected.

The erosion of the bill of rights has taken more than 250 years to get to the point that unarmed kids can be shot to death in broad daylight by the enforcers of those rights with impunity, torture is considered “due process” by those entrusted with ensuring that the ideals enshrined in the constitution are not compromised, our every communication becomes the property of unelected bureaucrats… It is my hope that the internet, and the free flow of digital information it houses will be more resilient than that.

Interesting, but way, way over my head and beyond my interests and available time to look into all that. Just following this site and attempting (sometimes) to get the gist of what some commentators/debaters are posting for entertainment/educational purposes is all I can do. I’ve been invited to join other sites, but enjoy being outside in the sun and environments.

OK, but Muschamp is not the best Defensive Coach available in the first place. He was loser at Florida, and will be so at Auburn. Instead, USC should look to the NFL for their next Defensive Coach. There are many to chose from, just get out the check book and find the best one.
