Not dissing what Kenny Hill did, but he was more Riley Skinner tonight than Joe Montana. Aggies' offensive line dominated.
moving forward at all times
Trey Williams 2-yard TD run -- Texas A&M 52, South Carolina 28. 12:09 left.
Dylan Thompson picked off deep in A&M territory. Aggies will burn the clock, end 3rd quarter. A&M 45, South Carolina 28.
Tra Carson 2-yard TD run. A&M 44, South Carolina 21.
Texas A&M has 500 yards of total offense and there's 20 minutes left in this game.
Head Ball Coach goes with on-sides kick. A&M recovers 42 yards from end zone.
80-yard TD drive by Gamecocks. But they're still down 17 midway through 3rd quarter.
Kenny Hill to Josh Reynolds, 5-yard TD pass. A&M 38, South Carolina 14 with 11 minutes left in third quarter.
Halftime: A&M 31, South Carolina 14.
Dylan Thompson intentional grounding, after he ran out of bounds earlier in the game for an unnecessary loss.
Armani Watts knocks loose ball from Nick Jones, avoiding likely TD pass.
South Carolina's 18-game home winning streak in deep, deep trouble.
Tra Carson with 2-yard run into end zone. A&M leads South Carolina 31-14 with !:16 left in the first half.
Kenny Hill to Edward Pope 14-yard TD pass: A&M 24, South Carolina 14.
Dylan Thompson to Damiere Byrd, 46-yard TD pass. A&M 17, South Carolina 14 with 9:47 left in the half.
A&M QB Kenny Hill: 16-of-20 for 172 yards and a touchdown.
A&M 17, South Carolina 7. Aggies go 85 yards in 9 plays. Again, Hill getting forever to find receivers.
USC defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward must be livid with this performance.
End of first: A&M 10, South Carolina 7.
Gamecocks finally get a stop.
Gerald 'G' Dixon from Rock Hill sacks Kenny Hill for a 6-yard loss. First real play defense has made.
Dylan Thompson to Nick Jones 69-yard touchdown. A&M 10, USC 7
Mike Davis in.
A&M has outgained USC 142 yards to 1 in first 10 minutes.
A&M QB Kenny Hill: 8-of-10 for 90 yards. Gamecocks front seven has been miserable so far.
Where's Mike Davis?
Pharoh Cooper was wide-open, should have held on to that pass.
QB pressure was non-existent for Gamecocks that drive.
Pharoh Cooper (No. 11) could be Spurrier's do-it-all guy this season: WR, KR, PR and some Wildcat QB.
Gamecocks looking to be more multiple in their defensive fronts this season. 3-4 plays to USC's depth at linebacker.
Gamecocks' home winning streak of 18 games is the longest in FBS currently.
if that isn't an invitation for the Gamecocks to run Mike Davis constantly, I don't know what is.
FWIW going into USC-Texas A&M: Aggies were 110th among 123 teams in rushing defense last season (222 yds/gm, 5.38 yds/rush) more...
It's a toasty 94 degrees at Williams-Brice Stadium an hour before kickoff. But unlike last year for USC-UNC, thunderstorm unlikely.
Tomorrow is my bday and only hope for one thing? to get up and have a good day! God as bless me with good people around me and I'm thankful!
I'd rather cover the pros than colleges (salary caps vs. recruiting scandals), but SEC football is a rare spectacle
September I jump into some college football. Looking forward to covering South Carolina hosting A&M and Clemson at Georgia.
I'm asked a lot about CDR. I understand, based on last season. But last thing Hornets need right now is another wing.
This isn't a big deal. Point is they'd be locked into 15 guarantees to firm up a 3rd center now.
That would effectively mean Cody Zeller will play some at center as well as power forward (which probably would have happened anyway).
FWIW I would not anticipate Hornets adding a 15th guarantee to bring a 3rd center to training camp.
Hornets announce the new replica jerseys will go on sale to general public starting Thursday at 11 a.m. at team store in TWC Arena.
FWIW: Manhattan is a hidden gem on TV. Period piece. Intricate, slow. Incredible element of history.
I didn't watch a minute of the Emmys tonight. I was surprised and amused by how many Gen X people did.
Didn't watch Emmys, but from twitter feed sounds like True Detectives didn't get its due. If that's so, says worst about TV.
I wish I knew less about celebrities today and more about the people from the Bible. That's my new goal!!!
Spurrier was asked about inexperience among SEC QBs: He noted last 2 Heisman winners were redshirt freshmen QBs Manziel and Winston.
FWIW, Texas A&M was 113th among 124 FBC schools in rushing yards allowed. (Yes, that was partially about tempo, but still...)
RB Mike Davis averaged 107 yards last season. Texas A&M gave up a stunning 222 yards rushing last season. Might be a factor Thursday night.
Spurrier joked Sunday he hopes the banner doesn't get egged. Unlikely. http://t.co/h2rdvzSGkF
Pharoh Cooper will play WR, KR, PR and Wildcat. Spurrier: “Obviously we want to use him a lot, but don’t want to run him into the ground.”
Steve Spurrier on expansion of college football playoff system: “Maybe 10 years from now they’ll have 8…But 4 is better than 2.”
Steve Spurrier Sunday on RB Mike Davis (ribs): “Hopefully Mike will be full speed/100 percent by Thursday. We think he will be.”
I get peoples' anger. But come on. World won't end if Panthers are bad.
Upton homer in Cincy.
I hope Panthers get that wild card berth. But if they don't, it would be funny if Bobcats/Hornets reach back-to-back playoffs first.
That Belichick guy is conniving, snarky and evasive. He's also the best coach in the NFL.
It's, um, rough, when the Ford Play of the Game is from the Patriots because the Panthers are scoreless.
So does Tom Brady come home tonight and say to the super model, 'I'll leave up the toilet seat if I want to."
I get better than most that this is a scrimmage: But the Patriots appear, no matter who is in, to cross that imaginary yellow line a lot.
Imagine if the Dallas Cowboys had invested in Garappollo.
LaFell drops ball...in other news, when it's 98 degrees in Charlotte, there could be thunderstorm warnings.
A ball hit LaFell in the hands. He did not catch it. Shocking, huh?
Obviously he was speaking specific to preseason football, which is more about evaluation than final score.
Ran into retired NFL player today at grocery store. Asked what matters tonight. Liked his answer "Individuals -- only thing coaches watch."
One of the things I like about covering the NBA is fans get the preseason is that -- scrimmages. NFL fan freak out.
Benjamin is a pterodactyl
The Panthers aspire to be a ball-control team. The real question is do they have the parts to approach the season that way?
Good point by Mike Rucker that Newton is making an honest effort to not bail out of the pocket prematurely.
Hornets previously signed their other first-rounder, Noah Vonleh.
Hornets have signed P.J. Hairston to his rookie-scale contract, according to an NBA source.
