Gamecocks coach not 100 percent satisfied with effort in win over The Citadel

COLUMBIA â€" Imagine that. The first team to make South Carolina sweat at home this season is the same one that lost by 61 here a year ago. "I've thought about it a lot," The Citadel coach Ed Conroy said of last year's opener. The Gamecocks started slowly Saturday afternoon and the Bulldogs made them work for an 80-66 victory inside the Colonial Life Arena.

Duck calling tips for the second season

When duck hunting on public waters, I often wonder what the ducks think when shooting time arrives. As long as it is not too windy, you can hear hunters attempting to call ducks from miles away. The noise can be more deafening than a pup tent full of mosquitoes. I sit there and think that a couple thousand wild mallards in the same location don't even sound that vocal. I can only imagine what the real ducks coming off of the roost think of the clamor.

McIlveen enjoys his return to Charleston

Paul McIlveen still has plenty of friends in the South Carolina Stingrays locker room. But McIlveen was forced to put those friendships aside for the weekend. The former Stingray scored the game-winning goal in the second period and added an assist to lead Elmira past South Carolina, 3-2, Saturday night before a crowd of 4,206 at the North Charleston Coliseum.

Kiffin returns jab

COLUMBIA â€" Lane Kiffin's first game as a college head coach is still months away. But he wasn't shy Saturday in taking on Steve Spurrier and further fueling the budding rivalry between Tennessee and South Carolina. With another coach headed from Columbia to Knoxville, Kiffin was asked Saturday whether he felt bad about ruffling some Gamecocks' feathers. Evidently not.

Pride restored to line

When Clemson's running game couldn't get going early in the season and running backs C.J. Spiller and James Davis were struggling to get any positive yardage, much of the blame was thrown at the Tigers' offense line. It was criticism from fans and the media that Clemson junior center/guard Thomas Austin took personally.
