Circle complete for Swinney, McCorvey

It started out as a typical Tuesday practice for Dabo Swinney. As an undersized, non-scholarship walk-on wide receiver at Alabama in 1990, Swinney had little or no chance of ever getting onto the field at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Swinney was relegated to the red practice field, which was reserved for Alabama's top defensive players and the "scout team" offensive players â€" underclassmen who were not going to play on game day and walk-ons.

Bowl system is outdated, but still good for America

Seems we talk every year about changing the college football format from the ageless bowl system to some sort of playoff system. In the past I've declared my preference for the latter, but I must admit that this time of year I have second thoughts. What would this country be, for instance, without the Motor City Bowl, Emerald Bowl, Alamo or Armed Forces Bowl?

Gamecock's Captain has eye on NFL

TAMPA, Fla. â€" South Carolina junior cornerback Captain Munnerlyn is leaning toward leaving school early for the NFL, sources familiar with his situation are saying. "I don't know what he's going to do," said USC cornerbacks coach Shane Beamer, who's trying, for now, to keep Munnerlyn focused on Outback Bowl opponent Iowa and not the pros. "At the proper time, if he wants to explore his options, we'll help him and give him the best information we can. We'll help him come to a good decision."

Forgotten Jenkins helps Gators chomp Cougars

Goose Creek's Philip Jenkins just might be the forgotten man when it comes to basketball in the Lowcountry. He's not as high profile as Pinewood Prep's Kenny Manigault and Milton Jennings, and he might not be as flashy as Porter-Gaud's Khris Middleton. But that's just fine with Jenkins, who had his typical performance â€" 25 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals â€" in the Gators' 63-43 victory over North Charleston in the opening round of the 16th annual Piggly Wiggly Roundball Classic at West Ashley High School.

Morin powers Rays

Duluth, Ga. â€" Travis Morin had four points, including an insurance goal short-handed, as the South Carolina Stingrays defeated the Gwinnett Gladiators, 4-3, at the Arena at Gwinnett Center.
