#97 South Carolina Gamecocks: College Basketball 111 in 111

frank martin south carolina

Welcome to The Sports Bank’s third annual college basketball season preview series.  Two years we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  Last year, we were slightly more aggressive and expanded to 111 teams in 111 days and will do so again as we look ahead to the 2012-2013 season.

We will rank the 75 power conference teams and top 36 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, transfers, incoming freshmen, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

How the South Carolina Gamecocks lured Frank Martin away from Kansas State is still one of the great mysteries of this college basketball off-season.  Martin will certainly have his work cut out for him since the Gamecocks lost three starters from last year’s team that finished dead last in the SEC.

Steve Spurrier coaches South Carolina spring session shirtless (video)

steve-spurrier

Shirtless driving season has already started in the south, and South Carolina Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier is embracing it.

But given both his age, and what he’s accomplished in college football, I think “the ol’ ball coach” or “the visor” now has license to do whatever he wants.

Maybe we’ll start calling him “the shirtless wonder” soon too.

LSU, Alabama Remain on Top as SEC Dominates Latest BCS Poll

With only six days until their titanic clash in Tuscaloosa on Saturday, the LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide remained on top of the latest BCS standings, which were released on Sunday night. Despite not playing this week, they both remained ahead of an Oklahoma State Cowboys squad that destroyed Baylor on Saturday, but none of that matters now as what will arguably be the most hyped college football game in quite some time is really imminent.

The Oklahoma Sooners ended up finishing in the third spot, followed closely by conference rival Oklahoma State at fourth.

Alabama Demolishes Florida, Puts Nation on Notice in Big Win

In what was supposed to be a showcase of two of the best defenses in the country, the Alabama Crimson Tide steamrolled the Florida Gators 38-10 on Saturday night in Gainesville. Trent Richardson racked up 181 rushing yards and scored twice, and Courtney Upshaw returned an intercepted John Brantley pass 45 yards for a touchdown as the Tide dealt the Gators a crushing defeat, especially on a day when the SEC East was right there for the taking.

#23 South Carolina Gamecocks: College Football 77 in 77

 

Of all the 1990s trends that have thankfully died out, I was really glad to see an end to all those STUPID white hats that frat-boy douches used to love wearing. The ones reading “BEAVERS” in huge letters with “Oregon State University” just below in smaller font.

And of course “COCKS” with “University of South Carolina” just above the brim.

“It’s funny because it’s slang for genitalia! HAHAHAHAHAHA.  It works on so many levels. OMG ! That’s just too EFFING FUNNY! That is so clever, interesting, and unique. Please tell me where I can get one, so I can be witty and original!!!!!”

But hey at least the South Carolina Gamecocks had some fake, bandwagon fans for awhile because of these hats. Ok enough bread and circuses, let’s talk SC FOOTBALL! Place at the table!
