I think this kid wants a future in media. If so, SC is probably the best place in the nation to make contacts. This just confirms that the NILs are going to bring a massive change into collegiate football (and will defeat any attempt at unionization – the star kids at a SC, an UCLA and an Oregon are going to want to keep the money their fame brings and not share with a 3rd team center on Cal).

Looks like the staff agreed with your take that they needed more depth. Looks to be a replacement for Carr (and perhaps an upgrade). He is certainly appears more suited for the Air Raid.

Allen, His move to UCLA makes no “business sense.” UCLA has an DL coach who is clearly inferior to Vic. Nansen is only in his 2nd year at that position. UCLA has no NIL value at all, while SC does. UCLA is not going to be competitive nationally during his time there. SC might. I figure what happened was “personal.” If I were to guess, the “Uncle” you wrote about got into it with Vic. Vic is Samoan and the “Uncle” is Tonganese. Just a guess. I know this sounds awful, but I am glad he left for several reasons,… Read more »

I am not certain that I have crossed over that much. What I am rooting for is the consequences of having an incompetent in charge of the program be allowed to take place. SC is NOT elite. Any claim to the contrary is simple deception. Clay keeps making the claim that SC is close and is seeking championships, which is simply a lie. The only way to expose the lie is for the consequences to occur and have Clay’s impersonation of Bagdad Bob become obvious. As to the all time low, I am with you. I think SC Football is… Read more »

Does anyone know why Coach Smith Gilbert, who is clearly elite, left SC for GA? She is clearly an elite coach. SC appears to have several elite coaches on staff but strangley neither of the two most important sports on campus – football and men’s BB have elite coaches. Enfield is clearly superior to Helton, for (unlike Helton) Enfield could get a job coaching at a top 50 school, but he is not shown himself to be elite. Enfield has yet to be renewed (Bohn is wisely seeing how he performs without the Mobleys) but he does deserve the chance… Read more »

F’ing A! Good gracious and she’s going Georgia? Nothing like SEC money in today’s world of college athletics.
I am surprised little mao let her leave—she checked off many of the SJW boxes that Foltie requires. Female, Minority, etc.

Thanks for your thoughts. Makes sense. I had another idea to supplement it. SC just invested heavily in staffing Women’s BB, another non-revenue producing sport. Wanna bet that the new Women’s BB coach was paid more (or at least given a larger staff budget) than by far the best T&F coach of both the Men & the Women in the nation? The new Women’s BB coach was paid certainly far more if you count the number of student athletes involved and it is much easier to manage scholarships and being elite in Women’s BB at a private school than in… Read more »

Great effort by the entire team and especially Captain Anna Cockrell who not only won her specialty, the 400m hurdles, but also the 100.

I agree 100 percent on coach Caryl Smith Gilbert. Her success and the teams’ performances should bring great recruiting results in the years to come.

This one really caught me by surprise. The timing of it suggests she was in touch with GA officials before and during the NCAAs. I’ve not been to Athens, GA, but spent a lot of time in Marietta, GA when I worked for Lockheed. Very humid in the Summer! Only things that would be appealing in my mind is the lower cost of living and slower pace of life compared to So Cal. I don’t know if Bohn counter offered, but this one hurts and casts doubts in my mind whether Bohn is the guy for the long term.

Thanks for the information and your insight Allen. I’m very disappointed with Folt and hope her tenure is short lived.
