South Carolina Gamecocks Football Report for August 7

 



COLUMBIA, S.C. (August 7, 2014) – For the second day in a row, the University of
South Carolina football team worked out in the morning at the Bluff Road
“Proving Grounds” on Thursday. 

The Gamecocks spent much of the team portion of the practice working on their
red zone offense and defense. “It was ok, not real good though,” said head coach
Steve Spurrier of the practice. “We did some new stuff. We were a little
sluggish today. “

Backup quarterback Brendan Nosovitch was not at practice on Thursday. “Brendan
Nosovitch had the day off to ponder his decision whether he wants to transfer or
stay,” said Coach Spurrier. “He’s got people telling him he’s a quarterback.
He’s struggling a little bit throwing the ball, but he’s a heck of an athlete
who can really play a lot of positions. Every young man has a right to make his
own decision. We’ll release him anywhere,” added the Head Ball Coach. “He can go
anywhere he wants to go. I’ve never put a binder on any player that wants to
transfer.”

Coach Spurrier was asked about Joe Blue, who was denied admission into the
University. “The University doesn’t tell us how to run the football program and
that’s their decision of who gets into school and who doesn’t. You need to ask
them. We’ve got the best president in the country, so I don’t question anything
President Pastides is in charge of.”

Coach Spurrier was also asked about the NCAA “autonomy” vote today. “The players
should share in (the money) just a little bit. I’m not talking about paying them
$100,000 a year. We’re not paying them. We’re trying to give them a little
pocket money and giving their parents some money to go back and forth to ball
games. I don’t think that’s asking too much. Hopefully someday that will
happen.”

Those who wore yellow “no contact” jerseys on Tuesday included Rory Anderson
(triceps), Kevin Crosby (foot), Terry Googer (hamstring), Ali Groves
(hamstring), Alan Knott (knee), Blake McClain (foot), D.J. Smith (wisdom teeth),
Brock Stadnik (knee), J.T. Surratt (sick), Devin Washington (hamstring), Michael
Washington (back), and David Williams (knee). Donell Stanley (wrist) was not at
practice after undergoing surgery earlier in the week.

The Gamecocks will return to the practice fields on Friday. It’s currently
scheduled for 7:15 p.m. Saturday’s 4 p.m. scrimmage will be the last open
practice for the public. Photographers and videographers will be allowed to
shoot the first 10 minutes of the scrimmage.

The annual Colonial Life Fan Appreciation Day is set for Sunday at Colonial Life
Arena. Doors will open at 1 p.m.  Student-athletes from football, cross country,
men’s and women’s soccer and volleyball will be on hand to autograph the
official team posters.

Arkansas Football signs OL Zach Rogers for 2015 season

 

UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS FOOTBALL || @RazorbackFB

@RazorbackFB Inks Offensive Lineman for 2015

 

FAYETTEVILLE – Head coach Bret Bielema announced Thursday that offensive lineman Zach Rogers has inked a financial aid agreement and is set to enroll in the spring 2015 semester beginning in January.

 

A consensus four-star recruit out of Hebron (Texas) HS, Rogers was the top-rated center in the nation by Scout.com. According to Rivals.com, the Lewisville, Texas, native is pegged as the No. 2 center on the national charts and No. 30 overall prospect in Texas.

 

”I am very excited to have Zach joining the Razorbacks in January,” said Coach Bielema. “We think he is one of the best offensive linemen in the class of 2015 and shows the mental and physical toughness that we expect our linemen to exhibit on and off the field. Zach continues to demonstrate all of the things that we hold to a higher standard here at Arkansas. Academics, athletic success and social behavior are the backbone of what becoming a Hog is all about and he will be a great addition to our family. Our #TexHogs are continuing to grow and we hope to add more with the rest of the 2015 class,” he added.

 

As a junior, Rogers helped Hebron advance to the second round of the Texas Class 5A Division II playoffs. He paved the way for Treyvon Hughes to rush for 1,445 yards in 2013.

 

Rogers selected Arkansas over other scholarship offers including Baylor, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas Tech and UCLA.

 

The Razorbacks will open the 2014-15 season on the road at Auburn on August 30 at 3 p.m., and will be broadcasted on the SEC Network.

Arkansas Razorbacks Football practice report for August 7

 

 

FAYETTEVILLE – On the eve of its first fully-padded practice, Arkansas football continued Wednesday’s intensity as the Razorbacks completed their fourth of 24 fall camp practices Thursday evening.

 

Venue: Outdoor practice fields

 

Format: Helmets and shells (upper-body padding)

 

Highlights: Tight end Hunter Henry excited his teammates and onlookers with a diving one handed catch to snag a first down in 11-on-11… Center Luke Charpentier paved the way for running back Korliss Marshall to barrel his way past the Razorback defense… Cornerback Caroll Washington executed key plays for the defense, including an interception… Back-up quarterback Rafe Peavey led the final drive; launching a touchdown pass to end the practice.

 

Quote of the Day: “We don’t have a real veteran group, but we have some talent there and it’s about maturing and being consistent. I think that’s our emphasis as we move forward in camp, is just to be more consistent.” – Tight ends coach Barry Lunney (@BarryLunneyJr)

Offensive coordinator Jim Chaney (@CoachJimChaney) on the offense’s ball security: “Pretty solid so far. Brandon threw an interception yesterday, just missed on an over route and hit him a little bit behind and the DB made a helluva nice play, they’re going to do that. I think he’s thrown 180-200 balls already with one interception so I’m pleased with that.”

 

AJ Derby (@AJ_Derby) on the transition to tight end: “I feel really good about everything right now. Everyday I’m trying to get better at blocking, and that’s becoming more natural as we go through. The route running and concepts comes down to just knowing the quarterback position, so I feel good about that.”

Kody Walker (@KWalkBeastMode) on the running game this year: “We got three backs that can go the distance at any time. It’s great to have that back there and they’re working hard. All of us, the running back group, we’ve taken pride in trying to be the best group on the team. We say that every day, we want to be the best group so we work every day to be that.”

Wabash Little Giants picked by Coaches to win 2014 NCAC Football race

 

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Wabash has emerged as the preseason favorite based on balloting by the league coaches as NCAC football squads prepare for the 2014 season.
The Little Giants, who finished second in the league standings a year ago with an 8-1 mark against conference foes and an overall record of 9-1, collected five of the possible 10 first-place votes cast from league coaches to total 95 points. Wittenberg, which captured its conference-leading 12th NCAC title in 2013 with a perfect 9-0 record, earned four of the final five first-place votes and finished second in the poll with 92 points. Denison and Wooster shared the third position with 67 points each, while DePauw rounded out the top-five with 57 points. Ohio Wesleyan was predicted to finish sixth with 55 points and Kenyon checked in at seventh with 36 points. Oberlin earned the final first place vote and finished eighth in the poll with 35 points, while Allegheny and Hiram tied for ninth with 23 points apiece.
Wabash will begin its seventh season under the direction of head coach Erik Raeburn with high expectations as the Little Giants return 16 starters and 31 lettermen from the 2013 squad. In six years at the helm of the program, Raeburn has compiled an overall record of 56-10, which includes a mark of 37-5 against league foes. Defense will once again be the calling card in Crawfordsville this fall as the Little Giants return nine starters from arguably the top defensive unit in the country in 2013. Senior All-American linebacker Cody Buresh (Holland, MI/Hamilton) leads the unit after totaling 57 tackles, 20.5 tackles-for-loss and 11.0 sacks a year ago, while classmate AJ Akinribade (Indianapolis, IN/Brownsburg) will also look to close out his career strong after finishing 2013 with 47 tackles, 9.0 tackles-for-loss and 4.5 sacks. Junior quarterback Michael Putko (Higley, AZ/Apollo), who threw for 1,702 yards and 14 touchdowns last fall, will again lead the offense this season, while the duo of senior Tyler Holmes (Bluffton, IN/Bluffton) and junior Mason Zurek (Saint John, IN/Andrean) are expected to earn the majority of the carries in the backfield after both suffered season-ending injuries last year. In addition, senior Houston Hodges (Plymouth, IN/Plymouth) will again make his presence felt on the gridiron this fall as he will be a two-way starter at wide receive and cornerback, and will also handle a majority of the return duties.
The 2014 NCAC football season opens on Saturday, September 6th with all 10 teams slated for non-conference competition, highlighted by Wabash hosting Hampden-Sydney in a matchup between two of the four all-male institutions in NCAA Division III.
- NCAC -
1. Wabash (5) 95
2. Wittenberg (4) 92
3. Denison 67
Wooster 67
5. DePauw 57
6. Ohio Wesleyan 55
