Well I certainly hoped you enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend I know I certainly did. I believe that there is one South Carolina recruit and one current football South Carolina player that did not enjoy this past weekend.
First up is the highly touted running back recruit Ben Axon. Axon originally committed to Clemson also had offers from F$U, West Virginia and Purdue.
Axon should be making plans to report to South Carolina in June like all the other freshmen football players but I have a feeling he will be held up for awhile. The Manatee (Florida) Po Po pulled over a car that had the odor the sweet sticky icky weed radiating from the backseat where Axon and the 23 bags of marijuana that he was “holding” was. Call it a tribute to Michael Phelps.
Axon has been released on bail but whether he will have a chance to graduate with his class on May 30th or even the scholarship offer from Steve God Spurrier is still good is right now up in the air. Knowing Spurrier’s past history of discipline I’m sure it is.
Speaking of discipline let’s move on to current South Carolina cornerback C.C. Whitlock. He was just reinstated after the sophomore missed most of spring practice while under academic suspension.
This past weekend Whitlock was arrested for trespassing after him and a few friends refused to leave a club after the owner, security personal and deputies ordered him to exit the premises.
Spurrier has suspended Whitlock from the team for now. Whitlock was one of five players who brawled with non-students in September during a fracas at the food court of the Russell House.

WTF is Saban doing? You just don’t go and suspend an All-American left tackle like Andre Smith for violating “team rules.” He won the Outland trophy for God’s sake!
“The University of Alabama, the team and the football program are more important than any individual player,” Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said in a statement Monday. “Every one on our team depends on each other to be responsible, to make good choices and decisions relative to their actions.”
Wait…we win the freaking Fulmer Cup for having the most off season’s arrests and now you want to play Mr. Disciplinarian? We need him Saban.
Now Smith is a perfect fit to go to Detroit with the 1st overall pick…he seemed too good for them until now!
Thanks Saban…its bad enough we got beat by jort loving Gators and now this.
“Our priority and focus as a team is to play the best football game of the season in this Sugar Bowl, and to support our players to overcome any adversity this unfortunate situation has created,” Saban said.
He better not be opening his own Jimmy Johns franchise. I own that shit in Bama! RTR!

Has anyone ever seen the movie Magnolia? I was conned into seeing it by a former girlfriend. It’s like three hours and eight minutes of tortuous hell. This Tennessee football season certainly reminds me of that. There never seems to be an end in sight.
This past Saturday’s game was yet another double digit loss and yet another three plus hours of watching mistake after mistake.
Unfortunately asshole Steve God Spurrier said it best in his press conference yesterday.
“The Tennessee band was there last night, weren’t they?” Spurrier said Sunday afternoon in his weekly conference call with reporters. “I’m used to hearing ‘Rocky Top.’ . . . Maybe they only play that when they score. Usually when you play Tennessee, you hear that ‘Rocky Top’ so often it’s ringing in your brain.”
Fulmer’s focus is clearly on winning out however it will not save his job. A 24-23 loss by Tennessee to the Gamecocks in 1992 was one of the main reasons Coach Fulmer’s predecessor, coach Johnny Majors was fired.
No one on the team cares anymore; there was no emotion on the sidelines, even when Berry intercepted the ball when the game was still in reach. It looked like everyone was at a funeral and maybe they were.
Any & all discipline is now gone, I saw how Stephens turned away from Fulmer when he got into his face, there is no respect for the coach because no one cares, they feel like the season is already over.
The amazing thing about this season is the fact the incoming recruiting class is phenomenal. On Saturday afternoon Phoebus quarterback Tajh Boyd announced his commitment to Tennessee. Boyd is ranked as the top QB in Virginia. The Vols so far have what is considered to be a top five class shaping up. However if and when Fulmer is fired will we keep any of those recruits?
“Anybody that likes Tennessee and cares about what the product looks like on the field is frustrated,” Fulmer said, echoing comments from this year. “I’m disappointed that we haven’t played well. I don’t think I’ve let it show on the practice field or in meetings. The players, they’re disappointed and frustrated, but they haven’t let it show in the game. We continue to get effort and haven’t seen a whole lot of finger pointing or anything like that.
“They’ve done what we’ve asked them to do and what they should do, and that’s continue to work and stay positive, play hard and look forward to what the next challenge is.”
My main goal is to get Coach Fulmer elected to the white house. As you can see below I spared no expense and sponsored a car in yesterday’s NASCAR race.
OK let’s go to the grade book.
Maybe we need to start B.J. Coleman. I wonder if the whole offensive system is broken. Rumor has it that 75% of the offensive plays are being changed by Coach Fulmer. If that is the case then he needs to allow Clawson to call the game against Wyoming and keep mum about the play calling. Regardless of the system no team can overcome to stupid mistakes that both quarterbacks seem to have made this past Saturday.
Running Backs: F
Creer’s fumble set up a touchdown that put the game out of reach. Foster ran hard and averaged around 4 yards per carry. He was very fortunate to get the ball over the goal line for a touchdown just moments before losing the handle on it.
With Jones and Moore on the bench there was zero explosiveness. South Carolina’s secondary was not challenged.
Offensive Line: F
Just when you thought Tennessee was going to start running the ball effectively the O-line would fail. There was no pass protection. The O-line gave up six sacks and of course penalties were again a problem.
Defensive Line: A-
With an injured D-line, the Vols still recorded three tackles for a loss and a sack.
Welcome back Rico McCoy. He had nine tackles and one was for a loss. Ellix Wilson had six. Nevin McKenzie had four, one for a loss.
Two words: Eric Berry. I’m willing to bet Chuck Norris wears Eric Berry underroos.
Special Teams: F-
Rogan’s fumble during a punt return was inexcusable. Demetrice Morley was called offside during a field goal attempt that prompted South Carolina to go for it on fourth down. And let’s not fail to mention the 67-yard punt return that almost scored.
Discipline is dead and of course there were to many conservative calls.
Tennessee is consistent…consistently awful and embarrassing. This loss could go down in the books as the worse loss in this decade.

The OB(Sac)C Garnet Way is new section in which we try to delve into the mind of Steve God Spurrier to see what he is thinking, how to handle certain situations and the cause & effect of dumb ass mistakes.
On 8/25/08 God Spurrier shocked the Gamecock faithful by announcing that Taylor Rank will get the starting nod over senior Mike Davis at tailback in USC’s season-opener against North Carolina State.
Spurrier stated his reasoning for starting Rank over Davis was:
“Taylor’s had a little bit better preseason practice,” Spurrier said following Monday afternoon’s practice. “He had a good summer going to workouts and Mike did too. Mike will be in early though.”
The Head Ball (Sac) Coach went on to say that Rank is “ready to play, he’s performed well, taken care of the ball, knows what to do. He’s a good solid back, but Mike will be in there pretty early.”
Still this left many of the Gamecock perplexed and soon there was panic in the streets as the Rogue Cop of West Columbia and his SWAT team had to turn the water hose on Gamecock fans. Coupled with military grade tear gas and Milkor MGL-140 grenade launchers thankfully quelled that riot.
Milkor MGL-140 grenade launcher, with longer cylinder and Picatinny type accessory rails
Well thankfully to some crack digging and good sources we now know the reason why Spurrier chose Rank over Davis.
Sunday was a scorcher here and I’m sure Davis was hot from after doing whatever Gamecock football players do when they don’t have practice. (Think in the lines of committing felonies.)
Davis was dazed, confused and extremely thirsty. He shouts out “Anyone got 2 dollars so I can get me a Gatorade?” All he heard was silence…silence!!!
Davis decided to do what any self-respecting Gamecock would do and break into a fridge that was in the team’s weight room and steal get him some damn Gatorade! Go Cocks!!!
Davis using his manly man yet parched force, showed that refrigerator who the boss was! After the damage was discovered God Spurrier quickly thought of ways to punish the culprit. Surely when the star QB to be can key a professor’s car and rack up three arrests in a 15 month period and not get booted off the team then how could he justify booting this perp off?
Spurrier asked his team of malevolent angels who the hell did this…but all were silent just like the responses to Davis’s cries for 2 dollars were silent the day before.
You can see Davis in this picture he has that confused and dazed look about him
Spurrier is crafty though and he decided to check the camera footage and low and behold there was Mike Davis assaulting and possible molesting that poor innocent refrigerator door.
Quickly the ball coach had to think. So instead of following university protocol by reporting this act of vandalism to the USC Campus Po Po, he has another idea instead.
He will make Davis pay for the damages through money Davis may or may not (wink wink nudge nudge) receive from the Blake Mitchell Fan Club. To top it all off Davis will not get to start against NC State.
Meaning he will most likely sit out the first offensive play of the game, after all God Spurrier stressed yesterday that Davis “should be in the game pretty early (Thursday) night.”
That my friends is truly being a Disciplinarian Aficionado. Go Cocks!!
On the next OB(Sac)C Garnet Way learn why God Spurrier considers John Daly a “very close & special” friend.
The OB(Sac)C Garnet Way has been brought to you by Sho’nuff Bail Bonds the official bail bonding company of Gamecocks everywhere.

Stephen Garcia you were reinstated two weeks early & for what? To sit on your ass? Sure you look better since you’ve gotten a haircut unfortunately you’re also sitting and not practicing.
Garcia is injured after spraining his right ankle “sometime Saturday,” as Steve God Spurrier put it.
“I may let him tell you. I don’t know. He said he did it in the scrimmage (Saturday). But he was OK ‘til he woke up Sunday morning,” USC coach Steve Spurrier said. “He thought he got hurt in the scrimmage somewhere. But anyway, he’s limping around.”
“He said he twisted it Saturday,” Spurrier added. “That’s his story and he’s sticking to it.”
That sounds like an implication meaning that Garcia injured the ankle doing something other than playing football.
Maybe he slipped and fell while out drinking in Five Points.
Garcia, who is said to be on third different zero-tolerance policy, better known as Zero Tolerance 3.0 the Garcia Edition, after following three arrests and at least one other university wrist-slap disciplinary incident will not be able to tell reporters what happened, because he returned to the team Aug. 1 after a four-month suspension, he released a statement saying he would not talk to the media until he played in a real game.
Spending a week or more sitting on his ass while on the sidelines is not the best course of action for someone who’s missed all but a couple of practices each of the past two springs.

Police take photos at the crime scene where a family member of a U.S. Olympic coach was stabbed to death and another was badly wounded by an assailant.
A Chinese man killed a relative of a U.S. men’s volleyball coach and injured another family member in a stabbing at a popular tourist spot in Beijing on Saturday.
The victim was a U.S. citizen and the injured victim was an American woman, police said, adding the attacker took that cowards way out & jumped to his death after the killing.
“While at the Drum Tower in central Beijing, the two family members were stabbed during an attack by what local law enforcement authorities have indicated was a lone assailant. One of the family members was killed and the other seriously injured,” the U.S. Olympic Committee said in a statement.
A Chinese tour guide was also injured in the attack carried out by the man just after midday.
According to police Tang Yongming, 47, from the eastern city of Hangzhou, jumped to his death from the second story of tourist site the Drum Tower after the attack.
The exact details of the attack, including the weapon used, were not clear.
“We need further investigation to find out the motive since the man has killed himself. We have no more information to provide for the moment,” a spokesman for the Beijing Public Security Bureau said.
A White House official said President George W. Bush, who is in Beijing for the start of the Games, was aware of the attack.
“The President has been informed and his heart goes out to the families of the victims,” a White House official said.
“The White House and U.S. Embassy have offered whatever assistance the family needs. U.S. officials have also been in touch with Chinese authorities on the matter.”
A U.S. embassy spokeswoman said diplomats had been dispatched to the Beijing hospital where the surviving tourist and the local tour guide had been rushed shortly after noon.
“We’re actively following the situation right now and U.S. Embassy officials are already at the hospital,” a U.S. embassy spokeswoman said.
The U.S. volleyball team is due to play their opening game against Venezuela on Sunday.
Shanghai and Beijing are considered safer than most foreign cities of their size. Punishments for crimes against foreigners are heavier than for crimes against Chinese, and police-linked neighborhood watch groups are highly vigilant. Chinese are not allowed to own guns.
Even so, the U.S. government now warns Americans against muggings, beatings and even carjackings, especially in the nightlife and shopping districts of large cities.
Then again reports of crime in China are censored, so maybe that’s why it’s considered safe there.
International Olympic Committee spokeswoman Emmanuelle Moreau said it was “deeply saddened” by the attack and was working with Chinese authorities to provide whatever assistance it could.
IMHO: China is a totalitarian oligarchy and given that alone should have never considered as a country to host the games much less been awarded the games.

I mourned the loss of UGA VI with her. Time and time again.
I can fully understand the university of Georgia football players being upset after the loss of their beloved Uga VI. What I don’t understand is the strange mourning ritual 3 players have endured.
The first two are Guard Justin Anderson and tackle Trinton Sturdivan. They are now are facing misdemeanor battery charges. According to the Po Po they were charged after an incident involving two women outside a dormitory. One of the players allegedly touched the stomach of one of the women, who is pregnant.
First off, if she’s pregnant and hanging around the dorms, she’s probably just visiting from Florida. Secondly, they could suspend everyone but Knowshon from the first two games and still cover the spread.
However sending flowers would have been sufficient.
“It is a misdemeanor allegation and the boys deny that they have done anything wrong,” said Ed Tolley, the attorney representing Anderson and Sturdivant. “We’ll have to let the courts sort it out.”
The third player, sophomore defensive end Michael Lemon, has been named as a suspect in a weekend altercation beat down at an Athens apartment complex, in which a Georgia student suffered an eye injury and head trauma.
If Lemon is indeed arrested, that would make him the seventh Georgia football player to be charged with a crime since the end of last season.
Usually UGA players stick to domestic violence…looks like they are branching out a little here.
According to the police report:
“Lemon punched [the victim] five times … and several witness advised that Mr. Lemon’s friends ‘huddled’ around Mr. Lemon as he was punching [the victim].”
The report also states the victim’s “left eye was noticeably swollen and he also had a bump on his head from where Mr. Lemon hit him. [The victim] advised that his vision was blurry from his left eye. It appeared as though [the victim] also had a concussion from the altercation.”
UGA associate athletics director Claude Felton was shocked to learn of the arrests and coach Richt was conveniently “out of town” so he couldn’t comment.
“Under Athletic Association policy, a misdemeanor offense will fall to a coach’s discretion in terms of disciplinary action,” Felton said. “I’m sure Coach Richt will gather all the facts and make a decision at some point.”
All this has caused Billy Bob Bammer to stop with the harvest of Coca plants with the Columbia Cartel and make an official statement:
“Listen UGA. Stop trying to one up Bama, we are better than you (except on the football field). We still have a lead at this point and will win the convict championship ’08 (sorry Tennessee). We appreciate your effort UGA but 10 arrests in 13 months cannot be beat so take that dawgs. RTR.”

Ryan Perrilloux, he of the casino/weed smoking corndog sector of SEC country, is currently looking for a school to play ball since The Hat gave him the boot for inhaling some of the finest “Gator Green” or “Knoxville Recruiting Tool”. So far, Alabama A& M, Valdosta St., and Jacksonville St. are supposedly recruiting. Presumably Perrilloux will be attending a D-1AA or D-II school to play immediately.
Then I saw this story on ESPN about Jackson State University football coach Rick Comegy trying to recruit him. I then got a headache. Why???
Well being a proud alumnus of Tennessee State University, Jackson State is one of our biggest rivals. We are talking about a rivalry that goes back decades. Epic battles between beautiful Nashville and piss ant Jackson, MS have insured and now the rivalry game is held as the Southern Heritage Classic held in Memphis, one of the two times a year that the Liberty Bowl is actually full.
Tennessee State has been one of the top HBCU’s historically, both athletically and academically. The school has produced a 1st round pick in this year’s draft (Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie), can claim two guys that should be NFL Hall of Famers (Richard Dent and Ed “Too Tall” Jones), several Olympic gold medalists (Ralph Boston, Chandra Cheesborough, Wilma Rudolph), journalists (Carl Rowan, Tina Tyus-Shaw, niece of Wyomia Tyus, another TSU alum and 2 time gold medalist), and some lady named Oprah Winfrey. After Walter Payton and Morgan Freeman*, who are the rest of the famous alums from that hellhole???
Besides being part of a great tradition, Perrilloux will also benefit from playing in LP Field, an NFL stadium that is the home of the Tennessee Titans, and not some old crappy ass stadium in “glamorous” downtown Jackson. Perrilloux, if you are reading this (thank God you aren’t Jerrell Powe because I don’t want to get some neighborhood kids together to record a special “School House Rocks: Tennessee St. Edition”) check out the campus, check out the city, and come home.
Think of it this way: If Nashville was good enough for Pacman Jones then it is good enough for you…
*Editor’s Note: Upon further research, Morgan Freeman was offered a partial scholarship to Jackson State but turned it down to become an airplane mechanic.

Stephen Garcia, the most prized football recruit in USC history was tabbed the future of South Carolina by Steve
God Spurrier himself. Now a little over a year since arriving on campus it’s very possible is none and done at USC without never even playing one snap in a game.USC athletics director Eric Hyman the Cock in charge decided to give Spurrier a crash course in discipline. Garcia has been suspended from all team-related activities until Aug. 15.
In addition, university officials have suspended Garcia from summer school and will require him to adhere to several stipulations, including drug tests and participation in an alcohol counseling program, if he wants to return to USC on Aug. 15 when summer school ends.
Garcia will be allowed to finish this semester at USC, but must move out of campus housing next week. He would have to ask to be readmitted in August.
Attempts to reach Garcia were unsuccessful. Gary Garcia, the player’s father, declined comment.
Many speculate that Garcia will sign with another school and not return to USC. I’m sure Urban Meyer is feverishly trying to contact Garcia’s parents.
The offense which was in disarray to begin with is now shattered.
“His attitude now is that he’s going to accept a very strong penalty and hopes to return next fall,” Spurrier said. “So we’ll just have to wait and see if that occurs.”
“He was upset. It’s very disappointing. His parents are crushed,” Spurrier said. “But he said he came to South Carolina to play here, to play for me and coach (David) Reaves. He loves it up here. He wishes he’d been a little smarter in some of his actions.”
Below is a timeline of the Garcia era.
- January: Arrives on campus
- Feb. 17: Arrested in Five Points and charged with drunkenness and failure to stop on police command
- Feb. 19: Suspended indefinitely by Steve Spurrier from team activities
- Feb. 22: Reinstated to team
- March 3: Arrested and charged with vandalizing the car of a USC professor two days earlier; suspended indefinitely
- March 5: Issues a public apology and has his long hair trimmed
- March 7: Spurrier announces Garcia will be suspended from spring practice
- April 16: Reinstated to team
- June 29: Enters pretrial intervention program that would clear charges from two previous arrests
- Aug. 28: Spurrier announces intention to redshirt Garcia for 2007 season
- October: Girlfriend gives birth to a boy, Memphys
- Friday: Begins spring practice in open competition for starting quarterback job
- Saturday: Cited and charged with underage drinking; listed as only suspect in discharging of fire extinguisher in campus dorm
- Tuesday: Suspended from team activities until Aug. 15 by the university.
USC quarterbacks and coaches work on new plays in lieu of Garcia’s absence.

So Pacman just went on Michael Irvin’s show today saying how he needed to watch who he hangs out with, and now this. Pacman, along with his trusty sidekick “Spoaty” are having a sockhop in “da ATL” on Sunday. So if anyone is in the Atlanta area on Sunday and need some way to kill off a Sunday night, here ya go. Ladies get in free and Grey Goose is on the house. I guess this means that Dana Jacobsen won’t be there since she’s a Belvedere chick. Don’t worry, they can afford all of the free Grey Goose because they got the flyers printed at Cheap Ass Flyers…
