He was good, not great. He was prepared, not committed. He was a solid quarterback, but not a spectacular Steve Spurrier quarterback. ever tried to do. It was one thing for Garcia to hear that when he was on campus and could go talk it out with Spurrier any time. But while he was at home in Tampa, Fla., and the Head Ball Coach was giving interviews to anybody from ESPN to the guy running the USC newsletter at the Texaco, it got a little unnerving. "I don't know any quarterback that wouldn't [take offense]," Garcia said during the preseason. "That's Coach Spurrier T Even after a May meeting with Spurrier, where the coach laid down the law in no uncertain terms of what he expected out of his redshirt senior quarterback and Garcia vowed to do it, the sniping continued. Spurrier, after his usual spring tour of the state's Gamecock Club meetings, continued to publicly say that Garcia was going to be challenged for the job by true freshman backup Connor Shaw, that Garcia needed to work harder, that getting through to Garcia was one of the most difficult things he had and he's going to do that every year that he coaches. I talked to him about it, and I've just got to play well and lead this team." There were two ways to go. He could shrink his head like some sort of 6-foot-2 turtle, be cowed by Spurrier's barbs and lose the gunslinger attitude he brought with him from an all-star career in high school. It has happened to a lot of other Spurrier QBs over the years and more often than not led to benchings and more public scoldings. That's not Garcia's style. He chose the second route -- prove the coach wrong. "I slimmed down to about 225, if you can call it slimming down," Garcia said. "Last year I was about 235, maybe a little north of that, so I worked really hard with (strength coach Craig Fitzgerald) and some of the other guys and trimmed down a little bit." He also curbed his reputation, telling a deep group of reporters that it wasn't so much a new diet, but just cutting down on the excesses. "There's a few things that I didn't take," he said with a marvelously straight face. "I'm sure you guys know what I'm talking about." Along the way, he also had an earnest discussion with Spurrier, explaining his frustration. He asked Spurrier to please un- derstand how hard it was to go against every natural instinct he had when he was on the field in order to stay in the playbook, doing what it said; Spurrier, a magician when he had the ball in his hands, agreed to ease up. It all foreshadowed Sept. 2, when the Gamecocks were set to open the season against Southern Miss in front of a national TV audience. Spurrier said right up until kickoff that Garcia and Shaw would play, although Garcia would start -- he qualified that by saying that he usually started his older guys. Garcia heard it, smirked and remembered as he stepped onto the field. Four hours later, he accepted his coach's congratulations. "His first touchdown run, he ran over that guy on about the 8-yard-line, and caromed into the end zone," Spurrier said. "That was a heck of a play. That was a good drive." It seemed as if Spurrier was still a bit in shock. There was nothing to really complain about, although he did try to appear a bit distraught at not scoring 50 points in the 4113 whipping of the Golden Eagles. For the first time in a long, long while, he didn't have a complaint about Stephen Garcia. 10 usc VS GEORGIAu Photo courtesy Travis Bell/Sideline Carolina steve spurrier "Scoring 41 points is pretty good," Garcia said, sweaty but relieved after a controlling performance in which he anchored the Gamecocks' offense. "During the offseason, ever since Coach Spurrier said we need to get the ball out of our hands, that's pretty much what I did." Shaw played, all right, but only for one play in a trick formation as Garcia and company ran up a 24-6 lead. Shaw also quarterbacked a series to end the second quarter, but Garcia started the second half, led two scoring drives and called it a night. The statistics were like his former label -- good, not great. He was 16-of-23 for 193 yards with no touchdowns, five carries for 38 yards and two touchdowns. It was those two scores that showed this is a different quarterback. The first was where Garcia picked up the blitz, scrambled to the sideline and began to race down it as his blockers appeared. He had a head-on collision with one defender, spun around in bounds and lunged across the goal line. The second was where he kept on a designed play but got stood up at the goal line. Somehow, Garcia stretched the ball over the plane and still kept possession, resulting in a touchdown on replay. Between the two, Garcia avoided sacks, threw to the right men, showed a good mixture of dump-offs to the slot men and deep spirals. As the touchdowns and field goals mounted and USC became assured of the win, Garcia stepped into new territory. He led. "This is the most comfortable I've been since I've stepped foot on this campus," Garcia proclaimed during fall camp. There are at least 11 games to go and anything can happen, but for one of the few times during Spurrier's tenure, there is no quarterback controversy. Shaw proved he could play, running across the field and finding D.L. Moore for the team's last touchdown, but as for a choice between Garcia and Shaw to start, there is no choice. Garcia earned it. The question before was if he would be able to keep it game to game. "We hit big plays here and there," Spurrier said. "We'll try to improve for the next game against Georgia." His quarterback is in line with that. Especially now that he is completely in charge of doing it. Ausc VS GEORGIA 11 12 USC VS GEORGIAU AUSC VS GEORGIA 13 Gamecocks Have chance to Make Georgia Rivalry Meaningful OPINION BY JAMES HARLEY T he now annual matchup between South Carolina and Georgia has always been a sort of gentleman's rivalry. Despite the Bulldogs' dominance in the overall series (46-14-2), which dates back to 1894, the Gamecocks have managed to earn some respect from their neighbor by winning some key games and keeping some others frighteningly close. Recent examples include USC's 2007 victory, our only one in the last eight meetings, which effectively ruined Georgia's chance to play for the SEC title and possibly a national championship. In the two years since, only a fumble at the goal line and a missed pass in the end zone have kept USC from notching a couple more upset wins. We've played Georgia so well that UGA coach Mark Richt commented last year that he doesn't sleep well before the Carolina game. Georgia fans, expressing a civility that is beyond the reach of other rivals such as Clemson and Tennessee, readily admit that we make them uncomfortable, and that this early contest is seen as a sort of litmus test for their season. With this kind of respect established and with the ground shifting in the SEC East, however, the Gamecocks have a real chance this year to boost this gentleman's rivalry to an entirely new level -- or, perhaps, lower it in a sense to a more nasty one by making it a more meaningful game. Face it, the reason Georgia is ranked in the pre-season polls every year and picked by the media to compete for the division title has little to do with their team of the given moment. Rather, it has everything to do with their tradition of finishing near the top of their division in the conference widely held as the strongest in college football. This favorable attention is essentially a default setting. USC has never staked a true claim to this status, and there has never been a more opportune time than now to do so. A win over Georgia would be the launching pad, putting us in the Top 25 and paving the way for a sharp increase in the importance of this game for the next few years as Tennessee slips out of the picture. Florida's unimpressive opening-week win over Miami of Ohio only further underlines the Gamecocks' opportunity. So how do we make this win happen? Unfortunately, all signs point to yet another nail-biter this year. While the Gamecocks blew out a decent team in Southern Miss, Georgia responded with some solid numbers of their own in a 55-7 whipping of Louisiana-Lafayette, only slightly weaker opposition. The potential weakness of UGA starting a freshman like Aaron Murray at quarterback is offset by our inability to put pressure on a quarterback, as displayed against the novice offensive line of the Golden Eagles. Georgia's line is acknowledged as one of the strongest in the league, which should keep Murray cozy and safe in the backfield, putting the pressure on our secondary to shut down a talented receiving crew. Both teams face potential suspensions at key positions for behavior off the field, though Weslye Saunders' absence may weigh the heaviest given his outstanding performance against the `Dogs last year. It would be nice to claim a home field advantage this year, but the fact is that half of our wins in the series came in Athens, and our fans haven't exactly been packing Williams-Brice stadium recently anyway. Even when they do show up they tend to bail out early, and with this game likely to go down to the wire that support may really be missed when it's time to make some real noise. With all of the factors looking about even, the bottom line is that the team that wants to win this game the most will be the victor, and they may well have to show this desire on the very last possession. The vibe going around is that our players are confident. Based on that and the mere math of our losing seven of the last eight (five of them by a touchdown or less), the Gamecocks are overdue and should be able to pull this one out if they really mean what they've been saying.

"No, everyone is still in it," he said. "I just wanted to take a closer look at those schools." One of the programs on that list that is very familiar to Byrd is USC. The New Jersey native has already been to Columbia on more than one occasion. "At South Carolina, I like the campus a lot," he said. The Gamecocks' signature win last season came against archrival Clemson, and Byrd was there to see the game. "That game was the loudest I've been to," he told GamecockCentral.com a day after the game. "They played well. Passingwise, they did good, and they dominated up front. Their weight room is big and has all brand-new stuff." Perhaps the biggest factor in Byrd's high interest level in USC is the job that quarterbacks coach and Northeast recruiter G.A. Mangus has done in recruiting him to Columbia. "Coach Mangus was the first coach to come see me play last year and was pretty much involved with me from the start," he said. "We talk every so often. My mom and dad really like him." Byrd says that he hopes to make a final decision sometime after his official visits. When asked what factors will ultimately shape his choice, he kept it simple. "Right now, I'm really looking at, if football wasn't a factor at all, whether or not I would go to the school solely for academics." Byrd is ranked by Rivals.com as a fourstar recruit and comes in as the nation's 203rd best prospect in the latest Rivals250 rankings. PHOtO cOurteSy rivALS.cOm n today's offensive systems, speed is as important as ever. That's something that Timber Creek (N.J.) High School wide receiver Damiere Byrd has a lot of, and one of the main reasons that he holds double-digit scholarship offers from programs like Florida, Iowa, Mississippi, Pittsburgh, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia and others.The 5-foot-9, 160pounder turned heads in March when he blazed a 4.26-second 40yard dash time at a Nike Combine testing event in Philadelphia, the fastest time ever recorded at such an event. Byrd, who is unsurprisingly also a track and field standout, has recorded a 10.41second 100-meter dash, a 21.52-second in the 200 and a 47.88 in the 400.Although he had a standout junior season highlighted by more than 1,200 yards of total offense, Byrd headed into Timber Creek's season opener on Friday against Cumberland with bigger goals in mind. "I want to win the championship," he said. "Last year we lost it by five, so winning the championship is my biggest goal. If that happens, the stats and postseason awards fall into place." The speedy pass-catcher, who has already visited USC, Rutgers, Florida and Michigan, says that he plans on taking three official visits at some point in the process. "Right now I'm taking official [visits] to South Carolina, Iowa and Ole Miss," he said. Those three programs are penciled in to receive officials, but they are not his final I 18 usc VS GEORGIAu Gamecocks Have Hope, depth Heading into Georgia Game BY CHRISTOPER THOMPSON T he difference was just four points on the field last season in Athens. By July, that margin had narrowed to a single point ... according to the voting of the SEC media in Birmingham. The separation between the Gamecocks and their border rival is razor-thin these days. Corner the skill positions. Example: the Bulldogs are going to play a freshman at QB. So are the Gamecocks ... not because they have to, but because the Head Ball Coach wants to, both to establish a reliable backup and to hedge his bets on Stephen Garcia's mental approach. The defensive depth is even more impressive in South Carolina's favor, when you consider everyone coming back on the Bulldogs' side is starting at square one in Todd Grantham's 3-4. Ellis Johnson's unit looks to be stronger than last year. Cross-training key players at more than one position has given Johnson multiple pieces of an imposing Gamecock puzzle. Has it all made a difference -- the shiny new academic center and locker room up- So, is this the year that South Carolina leapfrogs Georgia on the division ladder? Gamecock fans have had the Eastern crown in their sights since Steve Spurrier arrived in Columbia. But you've got to walk before you can run ... and in this case, you've got to move past Georgia before you can worry about taking down the top team in the East (which presumably is still Florida). So, why the hope heading into this season? After all, the Bulldogs have made a mockery of their series with USC, winning all but one of the last eight meetings. Why did Gamecock fans think 2010 would provide a better chance for advancing past UGA?

Would this be the year that a trip to Gainesville included a shot at the trophy? Reflect again on that meeting between the Gamecocks and Bulldogs last September. It was a four-hour slugfest where the breaks went both ways. Georgia returned a kickoff for a touchdown, while Eric Norwood found the end zone on an interception. A safety went to Carolina, while a blocked PAT gave the advantage back to UGA. In the end, a Garcia pass got batted down just inches away from completing a Gamecock victory. Inches away. A metaphor for the rivalry? And have the Gamecocks made enough progress since last September to close that miniscule gap between the two programs? We'll see on Saturday. But you might want to leave Nov. 13 open on your calendar. A Saturday in The Swamp could mean much more this fall. The calls poured into our radio shows all summer, giving a glimpse of the fans' psyche: Georgia's got a freshman quarterback. Mark Richt's in hot water because of all the arrests in Athens and an unimpressive 8-5 record in 2009. It's a sure sign of desperation -- the Bulldogs are hiring a pro coordinator and changing their base defense. It may have been a bit premature to start throwing dirt on Richt's grave, but the callers had a point: Georgia appeared to be vulnerable for the first time in years. Of course, Gamecock fans said the same thing about Lane Kiffin's Volunteers last year, and we know how that game wound up. At first glance, you'd at least call it even this season. Carolina and Georgia return the same number of starters (17), although that number could fluctuate based on who's suspended for either team on a given week.

Jimmy Maurer and Alex Long each played a half in goal, with Maurer starting and earning two saves. Long matched Maurer with two saves over the final half. Baladez scored off an assist from Blake Brettschneider, erasing the sting from having a previous shot hit the crossbar. Scarcely four minutes later, Root followed through on a corner kick and stung the ball through the box and over the goal line. senior Forward blake brettschneider Grimsley also dribbled around four defenders and passed to Danielle Au, whose shot was deflected straight to Campbell. Campbell kicked just wide enough to get the ball stuck in the side netting. USC defended its home field against the Bobcats, Grimsley scoring a goal with an assist while goalie Mollie Patton earned another shutout. She would tie the SEC record for career shutouts with eight more. Grimsley hit the insurance goal in the 78th minute and has assisted on all three game-winning goals this season. "Kayla's a difference in the game, for sure," coach Shelley Smith said in a statement. "She's a tremendous player. She draws so much attention that if it's not her scoring, she's helping others get chances. For her, sometimes we have to tell her to get more greedy." USC led Ohio 12-3 in shots, and the Gamecocks seemed concerned about avoiding the no-finish style they had flashed against Louisville. Several USC players had shots in the first half and the Gamecocks never let up throughout.

Senior libero Hannah Lawing was named to the all-tournament team and was awarded with the SEC's Defensive Player of the Week award, but USC lost to Middle Tennessee 3-0; Illinois 3-0 and BYU 3-2. Lawing averaged 5.91 digs per set during the weekend, including two frames with 10 or more digs each. Playing in a stifling gym, USC was skunked in its first two matches and blew a 2-0 lead that allowed BYU to tie in the third. The Cougars edged the Gamecocks 15-12 in the fifth and final set, despite Lawing collecting 31 digs to tie for fifth all-time in five-set matches.

Auto Home Life Business s INSURER One of the main reasons for that is the return of junior Beatrice Biwott, one of the leading runners in the country. She showed off her talents by winning the season-opening Gamecock Invitational last weekend over a field that included Clemson and Coastal Carolina. "She has a chance to finish in the Top 10 at the SEC and be in position to qualify for an NCAA spot," Rosenthal said. "She runs in the low 17s on most races and she has been consistent with that number for a while. If she can improve on that by a few seconds, she has a chance to be very special." The Gamecocks finished third in the season-opening meet. Rosenthal said a couple of mistakes by two freshmen runners cost USC several seconds in time and that was probably the difference between finishing first and third. Liz Locke and Scola Jepngetich are talented freshmen, but Rosenthal hopes they learn from their mistakes in the seasonopening meet. "Locke and Jepngetich usually run in the low 18s, but their times were closer to 19 because they tried to keep pace with Biwott," Rosenthal said. "They are not in that class yet and I think they understand that after competing for the first time." He felt if they had run more of their own race their times would have been better. Instead, they faded at the end. Clemson is ranked fifth in the Southeast Region and the Gamecocks finished only five points behind the Tigers. Rosenthal feels that is a solid start even with the mistakes made by the rookie runners. "To compete so closely with Clemson in our opening meet gave me great hope for what we can accomplish," Rosenthal said. "We're a much deeper team than last year. If we can get our fifth-place runner to be within a minute of Biwott we have the chance to have a pretty successful season." Last year, the Gamecocks finished 14th out of 45 teams in the Southeast Region. That is the team's highest placing in 13 years. Gone from this year's team is Dani Barnes, but outside of Biwott, a solid nucleus returns with a bevy of talented newcomers. Senior captain Ashley Evans stayed in Columbia in the offseason and is poised to have her best season ever. Laura Pramstaller, Shannon Walls, Erin Fedewa, Chelsea Leroux and Laura Beggs were Top 10 runners last year and will compete to be in the top five runners in each race. Other than Locke and Jepngetich, freshmen Rachel Grochowski and Penny Boswell are runners that have impressed in the preseason. "This is the deepest team we've had in years," Rosenthal said. "Our depth right now is our strong point. Hopefully we just have a few kids step up and we can compete in the SEC and if we do that we can compete nationally." The schedule is a challenging one. The highlights are races in Minnesota and Disney World. The late September trip to Minnesota for the 25th running of the Roy Griak Invitational is the most difficult. There should be at least 14 ranked teams in the field. "Our schedule will give us a real test," Rosenthal said. "The trip to Minnesota will be a real challenge for our team. That is an NCAA-caliber field and will test us highly." One advantage the Gamecocks could have in making the postseason is the SEC championships will be held at their home course at Hilton Field at Fort Jackson on Nov. 1. A top-five finish is the hope and Rosenthal believes that is possible with his talent. "Hopefully being at home will give our team incentive to dig down and work hard," Rosenthal said. "You never want to perform poorly on your home course." 22 usc VS GEORGIAu Ausc VS GEORGIA 23 ROsTER nO. nAME pOs. HGT. WGT. cL. HOMETOWn/HIGH scHOOL/LAsT cOLLEGE nO. nAME pOs. HGT. WGT. cL.
