|| By FITSNEWS || The University of South Carolina has a starting quarterback again …

His name? Connor Mitch.

How long will he keep the job? That depends … but for the time being, the Gamecock arms race is over.

Gamecock head coach Steve Spurrier named Mitch his starter this week.  That means the redshirt sophomore will be under center for the first series of South Carolina’s season-opener against North Carolina on September 3 in Charlotte, N.C.

After that?  Who knows …

Mitch – a 6-foot-3, 223-pound signal caller from Raleigh, N.C. – threw for 4,661 yards and 63 touchdowns as a high school senior in 2012, completing 62 percent of his passes.  He’s thrown a total of six collegiate passes (going 2 for 4 for 19 yards against Furman and 0 for 2 against South Alabama last year).

South Carolina’s offense has been a juggernaut the past few years with quarterbacks Connor Shaw and Dylan Thompson putting up huge numbers.  In fact Thompson had a record-breaking year in 2014 – an effort squandered by the Gamecocks’ non-existent defense.

Which brings us to our point: As much fun as it is to speculate about South Carolina’s quarterback situation, the season will hinge on improvements on the defensive side of the football.  Spurrier landed a pair of top junior college talents – defensive end Marquavius Lewis and defensive tackle Dante Sawyer – in an effort to shore things up, and obviously having a new co-coordinator on board should help immensely.

We shall see …

The Gamecocks – who began last season ranked No. 9 nationally – open 2015 unranked in both major polls.

This is news? Magnus has been saying Mitch was the man all along.

As you know something, like Iraq ? What a idiot.

Bible Thumper August 25, 2015 at 5:46 pm

Seems so bureaucratic, putting his first name last. What, did he have to fill out an application to get the quarterback job?

Spurrier PWNED you...(: August 25, 2015 at 6:38 pm

It was Mitch all along. Spurrier just likes to play Dumbasses, to see you all walk like robots, in lockstep.

You took the bit….imagine that.

Daniel Boome August 25, 2015 at 7:08 pm

Shut your mouth, you gamecock hater. If GT were here, he would slap the shit out of you.

Idiots copying, not flattering August 25, 2015 at 7:36 pm

It works when GT does it, but when you try…not so much.

Slurping GT’s sloppy seconds is nasty, and just makes you look that much lesser than him.

Daniel Boome August 25, 2015 at 7:46 pm

I’m pretty sure it just worked on your dumbass.

Another thing that your dumbass should understand is that this announcement was merely a formality and confirmed what we all knew, so there goes the supposed notion that Spurrier “likes to play to dumbasses” or that we “took the bait”. The only person who took the bait to display dumbassery here is you. Thank you for revealing who and what you are.

After the fact geniuses (: August 25, 2015 at 8:46 pm

Sure buddy, sure….(:

And Hillary’s a lock for 2016, too….Right?

Daniel Boome August 25, 2015 at 9:27 pm

Typical GT deflection. You forget, too, that you have advocated for Jeb and argued that Germone Hopper is better than Pharoh Cooper. Run from who and what you are much?

If he is good at at running, ‘chunking’ the ball, and keeping the defense off the field he should be OK.

Can’t wait to make a gameday sign in November of this:

troll August 26, 2015 at 12:21 pm

You must have stayed up really late to party with the kicker and a bag of coke to come up with that idea. That will be all over a Gameday sign in November. Hell will he try to snort the sidelines?

Cush August 26, 2015 at 2:41 pm

Actually I did. It was me, Lakip, George Rogers, the ghost of Rick James, Kenny Powers, and your hoebag mother.

troll August 26, 2015 at 5:38 pm

too bad your bitch of a mother and I were too busy, did you know she takes it up the ass?

Cush August 26, 2015 at 6:19 pm

That’s cool lil dude. That’s awesome that your first piece is 50 years older than you.

troll August 26, 2015 at 7:23 pm

Oh I forgot, Cush likes to act like a big boy but Im glad I have the approval of a midget twelve year old troll, and yes your mom still takes it up her ass and then licks it!!!

Cush August 27, 2015 at 10:02 am

“a midget twelve year old troll”

Your name is troll. My mother is 62. 62 – 50 = 12. Projecting much?

troll August 27, 2015 at 12:50 pm

yes, while you think you are such a big boy on your computer the reality is you have the physique, IQ, and “woman history” of a 12 year old. In other words you are like a little boy! You brought up the mother 1st and it is you that is projecting. Nice try big boy. now run along like the troll you are (I named myself after you trolling on a gamecock story when you are known not to be, but USC is so in your head you had to comment) USC lives rent free in your head, kind like you do in your mommies basement. I know she got a tad loud last night when it went in, I hope it didn’t bother you trying to jerk off down stairs. Next time I’ll give her a donkey punch to tell her to keep it down!

Conner-lite will not make it three games before he’s injured because Spurrier will play him with no regard for the boy’s health. Spurrier has no options and will drive Conner-lite into the ground as a result. Klassy. Dabo would never do anything like that to a young man. Winning isn’t everything at Clemson like it is at USC-e.
