INTERIM HEAD COACH GETS FIRST VICTORY OVER VANDY

University of South Carolina interim head football coach Shawn Elliott got his first career win on Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium.

With a little help from the visor …

Prior to the Gamecocks – his Gamecocks – taking the field against Vanderbilt, Elliott held aloft the famed white visor worn by legendary head coach Steve Spurrier, who resigned earlier this week after nearly eleven years at the helm of the South Carolina program.

SHAWN ELLIOTT

Over that stretch the team earned its first-ever SEC East title, its first win over a No. 1 team, its first Top Ten finish (a feat it accomplished three times) and its first eleven win season (which it also accomplished three times).

Spurrier led the Gamecocks to unprecedented heights, but they came crashing back to mediocrity in 2014 – and the first half of 2015 was an unmitigated disaster.

Citing the best interests of the program, Spurrier stepped aside and handed the reins to Elliott – who relied on an opportunistic defense to earn a 19-10 win over the Commodores.  It wasn’t pretty.  It doesn’t necessarily bode well for the immediate future of the program.  And it didn’t do much to establish Elliott as a legitimate candidate for the full-time head coaching job (even though Gamecock athletics director Ray Tanner said earlier in the day that he was in the running for the post).

But still – it was a “W.”

Skai Moore led the way for the much-maligned Gamecock “D,” recording an interception, a forced fumble a fumble recovery and a game-high eleven tackles.  All told, South Carolina (3-4, 1-4 SEC) forced five Vandy turnovers – although offensive coordinator G.A. Mangus‘ offense repeatedly failed to capitalize on the Commodore miscues.

Former walk-on Perry Orth completed 17 of 28 passes – including a 78-yard scoring strike to preseason All-SEC wide receiver Pharoh Cooper that put South Carolina ahead for good in the third quarter.  Cooper finished the game with seven receptions for 160 yards.  The Gamecocks also got a boost from the return of running back Brandon Wilds, who toted the rock 24 times for 119 yards in his first game back since suffering a rib injury against Georgia.

Wilds was cleared to play a week ago against Louisiana State, but said his ribs were still bothering him – drawing a rebuke from Spurrier.

“Brandon decided he didn’t want to play today,” a frustrated Head Ball Coach said at the time.

Vanderbilt (2-4, 0-3 SEC) also had a 100-yard rusher.  Junior wide receiver Darrius Sims carried the ball six times for 104 yards.  He also caught three passes for 22 yards.  But the Commodores simply couldn’t get out of their own way.  Quarterback Johnny McCrady completed just half of his passes – 21 of 42 attempts – and was intercepted three times.  He also fumbled once.

The Gamecock defensive effort drew rave reviews from Elliott, whose chest-bumping, vein-bulging, high-intensity sideline demeanor was a marked contrast to the pacing and grimacing of Spurrier.

Oh, and the occasional visor-tossing …

For now, though, the visor that was thrown down has been picked up.

Things get considerably more difficult for the Gamecocks over their next few games, though, with three nationally-ranked teams left on the schedule (No. 9 Texas A&M, No. 8 Florida and No. 5 Clemson).

The Gamecocks will have to steal at least one of those games – and beat Tennessee on the road and The Citadel at home – if they hope to avoid their first losing season since 2003.

i know, this was not a big game against a big team and we did not break off any big limbs, but it felt good to see a win.

Orth should have been about 24-25 for 28. Receivers dropping balls in their hands. No excuse. Still, it’s a win and a (new) start.

A PSALM OF LIFE
————————-

Life is real, life is earnest, and the shell is not its pen –“Egg thou art, and egg remainest” was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting, be our bills then
sharpened well, and not like muffled drums be beating on the inside of the shell.

In the world’s broad field of battle, in the great barnyard of life, be not like those lazy cattle!
Be a rooster in the strife!

Lives of roosters all remind us, we can make our lives sublime, and when roasted, leave behind us, hen tracks on the sands of time.

Hen tracks that perhaps another chicken drooping in the rain, some forlorn and henpecked brother, when he sees, shall crow again.

Coming home from his Pop Warner game, Billy swung open the front door very excited. Unable to attend the game, his father immediately wanted to know what happened.

“So, how did you do, son?” he asked.

“You’ll never believe it!” Billy said. “I was responsible for the winning goal!”

“Really? How’d you do that?”

“I fumbled the ball.”

Cooper is a junior, he’s played in front of a lot bigger audiences than the 75,000 that were there tonight – he dropped one touchdown and at least one first down. Don’t get me wrong, he went 7 for 160 and a TD but he should have been 9 for over 200 and 2 TDs.

SC is in a rebuilding year, no doubt. So my attention will be turned toward Clemson, hoping to see them lose. I’m sure FITS will want to talk anything but the over-rating of the Taters, even if he were bright enough to discern it.

But the ACC will stridently protect Clemson, because it is a league desperate for undeserved respect. The ACC will manufacture a contender, even though it has no real one.

Just look at the penalty disparity against BC. Clemson was penaized about half- as much as BC. That trend will hold ALL year. And even be worse – in Clemson’s favor – if FSU loses. The ACC will make an assessment of who has a better shot at undefeated, and that team will get protection all year.

FSU plays Florida from the SEC, Clemson plays a very down SC team. Take a guess at which team get the protection.

Bottom line: You cannot play little league football all year, then expect to be competitive vs REAL college football powers. It’s why the ACC’s Bowl Record SUCKS.

Already making excuses for the USCe loss to Clemson?

So are you saying one team should be penalized the same number of times as the opponent? Does Alabama get called for penalties? Why? They’re Alabama, nobody should be calling penalties against them.

Bottom line: USCe is in a conference in which they can not compete… but that seems to be a pattern. One SEC division championship only to get their ass beat in the championship game over a 24 year period is not competitive. The only conference championship USCe has is a lowly ACC conference championship in 1969 and could not win another one from 1970 until they joined the SEC in 1991. Was USCe the Vanderbilt of the ACC for those 20 years?

Reply
Speak D Truth October 18, 2015 at 10:23 am

I think the point was that FSU may lose to UF and Clemson will almost definitely beat USC. That means that the ACC refs will protect Clemson when they play FSU. They will do all that they can to make Clemson stay undefeated so they can make the playoffs. If Clemson loses to FSU and FSU loses to UF then neither team is likely to make the playoffs over a one loss SEC Team that plays a much tougher schedule.

ACC Atlantic > SEC East

TARevolution October 18, 2015 at 3:01 pm

Then why is it, when the bowls are played, you so often get your ass kicked?

That’s the real test. Not some Dumbass opinion.

Bible Thumper October 18, 2015 at 3:26 pm

Florida State, Georgia Tech, Clemson and Louisville swept SEC East rivals in 2015. All but Ga.Tech are ACC Atlantic.

Scooter October 20, 2015 at 10:07 am

what about the year before that, or the one before that, or the one before that? so it happened 1 time. good job!!

You had better get use to the Coots being down. Hell, they may never get up.

the taters might pull the annual Clemsoning to USC you might want to watch what you say

TARevolution October 18, 2015 at 11:21 am

EXACTLY. I’m not sure the aCC Champ should get ANYTHING automatic, if some of the other equally-weak conferences don’t.

TARevolution October 18, 2015 at 11:20 am

It’s more ACC based than NCAA…But the NCAA is DEFINITELY not pleased with the SEC National Championship over and over.

And their media is in lockstep.

TARevolution October 18, 2015 at 11:19 am

You DO speak D TRUTH.

I’m saying watch the trend. The ACC protects its “contender” because they have to manufacture quality when it comes to national power football.

Last night, Watson threw a 3-yd pass. The Clemson receiver was almost knocking down the DB covering him. Not a word was said, not was a flag thrown. The media gushed at the catch, when it was obvious offensive PI.

What I’m saying is pretty simple and possible to support, or refute. Are you too stupid (or biased) to comprehend what I’m saying?

You mean from 1970 until 1973 when they left the ACC and weren’t in a conference to try to win one. Don’t be a fucking moron making up false facts, just be the fucking moron you already are. You absolutely have no life other than being a hater and a troll. what really happened to you? Did you get turned down by the school to play ball and had to go the d2 route, did your mom left you dad for a black guy that makes you so racist? seriously I haven’t seen anyone so pathetic since Tango, and I think you have him beat.

Squishy123 October 19, 2015 at 10:17 pm

Ha, as if my comment would make any difference had I wrote 1973 instead of 1970.

BTW – Here’s those powerhouse years.

1973 7 4 0
1972 4 7 0
1971 6 5 0
1970 4 6 1

no, you wrote 1991. you really are retarded and yes there were many season in there that would have won the acc. Take 1973 for example. there was only 1 ACC loss so that would have been an ACC title that year, you know 84 and 87, and 88 if Im not mistaken would have been too. You really fucked yourself with your lack of any knowledge just hating. what a sorry little man you are so that’s 4 right there, which is 3 more than the taters have had since 1991.

Penny Pemrose October 18, 2015 at 3:52 pm

And Carolina lost 8 bowl games in row…….Clemson is ranked 6th……where is Carolina RANKED……Where is your head coach? How many DC’s yall got and you couldn’t stop a pop warner team from scoring…..

Tell me about it, Dabo does in fact look retarded dancing in the locker rooms after wins against App State or Wofford

As bad as Elliot squeaking out a win against Vanderbilt?

Is it bad when your team MVP is your kicker?

After beating #8 UF, how far should undefeated LSU rise in the polls because of strength of schedule? Who ahead of them should fall in the polls due to LSU’s rise?

LSU jumped Clemson. 3 of their last 5 games are against ranked opponents. If they win out there is now way they should miss the playoffs even if all of the teams ranked ahead of them win out also.

Given the strength of schedule it will be a lot harder for LSU to run the table than it will be for Clemson.

Bible Thumper October 18, 2015 at 3:13 pm

The American Athletic Conference could cause the Power-5 some trouble. Houston, Temple and Memphis are undefeated. Temple plays ND and Memphis. Houston plays Vandy and Memphis.

Squishy123 October 18, 2015 at 3:44 pm

Nobody has mentioned the photo, Elliott getting douched with Gatorade… for squeaking out a win against Vanderbilt. Did the 23 students left at the end of the game rush the field as well?

Because most know its for a coaches first win and aren’t so desperate to bash someone they say something that fucking stupid, but since you did I will reply isn’t that like rushing the field for beating App State at Clemsux?

Reply
Penny Pemrose October 18, 2015 at 3:50 pm

This was a great game. Carolina and Vandy were playing for the last place in the SEC. This from the team the Yard Chicken supports said was going to be 9 win team. They have 2 DC’s and the defense has more holes than a colander. The is head recruiter that can’t recruit. A recruiting class for next year that is terrible at best……..sucks at worst. The head coach (The Old Ball Sack) quits on the team in the middle of the season BUT gets the 700K owned to him from his contract. The team is in total disarray Elliot has no chance of saving the season. He has 1 more win and then it’s ALL DOWNHILL from here. The chance Tanner gives him the job is slim. Is Elliot going to go back to the OC when new coach comes……..NOT LIKELY. The best thing for the Yard Chickens is hire all the coaches and start over. This is the MIGHT GAMECOCKS…….that you all bragged about…….WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR…….You going to suck even wose.

Reply
Speak D Truth October 18, 2015 at 4:11 pm

The goal for SC should be to win all of their remaining games. Elliott’s success though should be measured based off of whether or not SC makes improvements on the field and whether or not the recruiting class improves. I think that SC will make significant changes to it’s staff next year. I could see Ward being dismissed or relegated to obscurity before the season is over.
