Know Your Enemy: South Carolina

Opponent: South Carolina Gamecocks (A gamecock is a bird bred for cockfights. So the modern equivalent would be the Virginia Tech Bad Newz Kennel Dogs.)

Location: Columbia, South Carolina

Previous Game Against UF: 2006, lost to the Florida Gators 17-16.

This season: 6-4 (3-4 SEC)

Notable Statistic(s): In 27 games, UF has lost four times, all at South Carolina...For all the talk about how good of a passer Tebow is, SC dynamic duo of Mitchell and Smelley has the Gamecocks throwing for about 250 yards per game. UF throws for about 251...The last time SC won back-to-back meetings in Columbia was 1936 and 1939.

Notable Player(s): DB Emanuel Cook is nursing a bum ankle, but he's the leading tackler for SC. He also has broken up five passes this season and has two picks...Either QB will play but Chris Smelley has 7 picks and 9 TDs while Blake Mitchell has a half dozen of each.

Unconfirmed Rumor About Team: This section is always a joke. For Georgia is was Matt Stafford needing a spotter when he lifts a keg. For Kentucky, it was Commonwealth Stadium using polytrack like a horse track. But this one isn't a joke. Well, it might be.

Catch 47 in Tampa shows "Orange and Blue Preview" with Frank Frangie and Shane Matthews (it is a syndicated show). At the end of this week's program, Matthews discussed a plan where if Les Miles goes to Michigan, LSU would try to get Spurrier. Then he said it was just a rumor. Wait, what kind of rumor? Like Billy Bob and Jimbo talking at the tailgate? Or someone's agent talking to an athletic director? Perhaps, Matthews was just suggesting the move, but why would he then say it was a rumor?
