Going Head-To-Head

CLEMSON â€" Clemson running back James Davis ran his finger down the South Carolina depth chart. When his finger got to the name of Gamecocks linebacker Jasper Brinkley, he stopped and looked up at the throng of media that had gathered about his desk. A sly smile crossed his face as he said to no one in particular, "Is Jasper still playing for them? Are you sure he's back? I thought he was a senior last year."

Johnson has been on both sides of this rivalry

COLUMBIA â€" Ellis Johnson knows what it's like to be on both sides of a rivalry in this state. His first high school coaching job was at Gaffney, from 1976-78. Then he headed down Interstate 85 to Spartanburg High. His mistake in all that? Johnson continued to live in Gaffney after jumping ships. "Yeah, I did," he said, "for three months."

Sophomore Maddox moves up to No. 2 RB

COLUMBIA â€" Running back Eric Baker's ankle injury has paved the way for a pretty improbable return in South Carolina's backfield. Brian Maddox stands to be the team's No. 2 runner for Saturday's game at Clemson. Baker, the freshman, was ruled out Wednesday by coach Steve Spurrier.

Dabo and the other leftovers

Why Clemson Nation, barring the shame of a lopsided loss to South Carolina on Saturday, should encourage Dr. Terry Don Phillips to surgically remove the "interim" from Dabo Swinney's job title and ignore a cast of candidates almost as intriguing as the characters in a Ken Burger novel. And why not.

Stopping 'The Freak' one of biggest keys for Tigers

CLEMSON â€" More than one team has tried to stop South Carolina tight end/wide receiver Jared Cook and failed over the past two seasons. Cook has created matchup nightmares for most defenses because of his rare combination of size and speed. At 6-5 and 240 pounds, Cook has the size of a tight end, but the speed of a wide receiver.
