Few things I like better than the sea breeze off SC coast. Put sister to bed, appreciating the Atlantic. Simple pleasures.
I'm biggest country music fan in the NBA!!! (Self-proclaimed and there isn't much competition, but you get the point!)
Passed through Vidalia country today. Has been my go-to onion for years. Now it's a real place.
Alonzo Gee's contract is turning him into the NBA's player-to-be-named-later.
While freshman Deshaun Watson will keep getting snaps, Clemson OC Chad Morris asserted, "Cole (Stoudt) is our starting quarterback."
If Georgia can run out the clock, Clemson will finish 2nd half with no points and one first down.
Gurley: 14 carries, 147 yards.
Gurley for 38.
Sanford Stadium in full voice
Clemson now has one first down this half.
Mark Richt said in his pre-game show he can't imagine why Clemson's Vic Beasley didn't turn pro. Dabo would have said same of Todd Gurley.
Is Clemson defense starting to wear down?
So far Cole Stoudt hasn't handled Georgia blitzes very well.
Georgia 27-yard field goal: Bulldogs 24, Clemson 21
Georgia epiphany: Hand the ball to Todd Gurley.
It's beyond me how Todd Gurley has just four carries at halftime.
Clemson outgaining Georgia 276 yards to 113. However Gurley and short fields negated that advantage.
Halftime: Clemson 21, Georgia 21.
Not much excuse for a major-college placekicker missing a 35-yard attempt.
Will this bring Watson back in?
Stoudt picked off to give Georgia possession at midfield. One of the things Dabo Swinney prioritized for Stoudt was minimizing turnovers.
The noise in Sanford Stadium a minute ago was...wow.
Gurley is to RB as Sammy Watkins was to WR.
GURLEY....no further comment necessary.
C.J. Davidson one-year TD leap for Clemson, which leads 21-14. 10 plays, 68 yards.
You know Chad Morris wants to go for it.
Stoudt said Tuesday he's happy to see Watson competing for snaps. Right now Stoudt is competing right back.
Now Stoudt makes a big throw. Not quite what Watson did, but still impressive.
Stoudt back out there as Clemson QB.
Big downfield throw by Watson. He splits two defenders for TD pass. Had to be right there against that coverage.
Tigers moving the ball with Watson at QB.
End of 1st: Georgia 14, Clemson 7. Tigers insert freshman QB Deshaun Watson. Dabo Swinney said Watson would get some plays.
Georgia TD makes it 14-7. Clemson can't afford this procession of short fields and Stoudt getting no help from receivers.
Georgia might consider running that Gurley sweep once or twice more today.
Safety blitz blows up Cole Stoudt in the pocket.
Huge break for Clemson the way Georgia was driving.
Georgia with another short field.
Clemson receivers with a case of the drops.
Gurley goes untouched for a TD. Man, he's talented.
Georgia with great field position on its own 44.
Good gang-tackling by Clemson, which is a must versus Gurley. The guy is tailback with the power of a defensive end.
70 yards, 12 plays for Clemson TD drive.
That Chad Morris is a bit of a play-caller, huh?
D.J. Howard for a one-yard Clemson touchdown. 7-0 over Georgia.
Cole Stoudt, Clemson's first-time starter at QB, sure doesn't look overwhelmed by the moment.
Between the hedges for Georgia-Clemson. http://t.co/J9vEixWuQK
Finland is cheeks
I just want it to take a little time to thank a lot of you guys for sending me good wishes for my bday! I appreciate each one of you..
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).
