VIDEO OF THE DAY

ROOSTER CROWS

In yesterday's Signing Day press conference, Coach Spurrier noted that all of the recruits who officially committed to the Gamecocks stuck with us. We had no de-commits or wafflers.

With Shaq Roland signing with South Carolina yesterday, the past four consecutive South Carolina Mr. Football award winners have become Gamecocks. Spurrier noted the streak in the press conference.

"To get the Mr. Football four years in a row is neat. Looking back, Stephon Gilmore being the first really helped us four years ago. We had just come off the Outback Bowl where we played like crap. I was hoping someone didn't get ahold of Stephon, but he was a mid-year guy, came in January and stuck with us. Then Marcus (Lattimore) and (Jadeveon) Cloweny and now Shaq (Roland). They've all been outstanding players and will continue to be. It's pretty neat that we've been able to do that."
