South Carolina’s Muschamp isn’t ruling out Deebo Samuel’s return

South Carolina head coach Will Muschamp had some positive news Wednesday regarding the status of one of the Gamecocks' biggest stars.

Muschamp talked about injured wide receiver Deebo Samuel during his weekly "Carolina Calls" radio show, and didn't rule out the possibility of the junior returning to the gridiron this season, according to Josh Kendall of The State.

"Deebo Samuel, you are possibly looking at the end of the season, getting him some time, but at the end of the day that's going to be a medical decision," Muschamp said.

Samuel has been out of action since suffering what was initially reported as a broken leg against Kentucky on Sept. 16. The wide receiver later refuted that diagnosis, calling the injury a low ankle fracture and vowing to return in five-to-six weeks.

Despite missing the last four games, Samuel remains tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns at three with fellow wideout OrTre Smith.

South Carolina’s Dowdle to undergo surgery on fractured leg

COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina running back Rico Dowdle will have surgery on a fractured bone in his left leg and miss an extended part of the remaining season.

Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp said Dowdle will have the operation later this week after leaving in the second quarter of the team’s 15-9 victory at Tennessee last Saturday. Dowdle becomes the latest significant South Carolina player sidelined with an injury.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel was injured last month and had surgery to repair a broken bone. He’s holding out hope to return before the end of the year. Linebacker Bryson Allen-Williams is out for the year after shoulder surgery.

Dowdle, a 5-foot-11, 220-pound sophomore from Asheville, North Carolina, was the Gamecocks’ top rusher last season. He had gained 206 yards on 60 carries this season.

Kodak Black Indicted On Criminal Sexual Conduct Charges In South Carolina

A grand jury has indicted Kodak Black on first-degree criminal sexual conduct charges in Florence County, South Carolina. 

Kodak Black, born Dieuson Octave, faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted of the charges that stem from an incident that occurred back in February 2015.

Reports ABC 15 News:

A Florence County Sheriff’s Office incident report says the assault happened back in February while Octave was in Florence for a show at the Treasure City nightclub.

Octave, 20, is accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl, who first reported it to her school nurse in Richland County. The school resource officer got involved and made the Florence County Sheriff’s Office aware of the allegations.

The report says Octave sexually assaulted the girl at the Comfort Inn and Suites in Florence County.

Octave was released from the Florence County Detention Center Thursday, Dec. 1, on a $ 100,000 bond.

Worth noting is that part of Kodak’s bail conditions is not to comment on the case anywhere, including his music.

While Kodak Black recently completed an anger management course, the details of this case are very, very disturbing.

South Carolina’s Samuel out for ‘extended period’ following surgery

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) South Carolina receiver Deebo Samuel had surgery on his fractured left leg Sunday and Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp said the Southeastern Conference’s touchdowns leader will miss an extended period of time.

Muschamp said Saturday night after a 23-13 loss to Kentucky that Samuel’s leg was broken and he would miss the rest of the season. On Sunday, Muschamp said that Samuel’s surgery went well and he’ll wait and see how the recovery goes.

Samuel and his mother went on Twitter shortly after the game that junior would only miss five or six weeks and return toward the end of the season.

Samuel got his sixth TD of the season on a 68-yard catch. He leads the SEC and is tied for second nationally.

South Florida’s decimation of Illinois summed up in 3 numbers

No. 22 South Florida played for keeps Friday night against Illinois, and boy did it show.

After a sloppy first quarter that saw South Florida surrender a blocked field goal and extra point that was returned for a defensive PAT, the Bulls kicked everything into attack mode, and then annihilate mode, and then eventually slaughter mode before coming away with a 47-23 victory.

Even though South Florida was favored coming into the contest, there were a number of tidbits in the game that are just far too interesting to ignore. Here are three notable numbers that added significance to an otherwise normal blowout.

680

Monumental is exactly how to describe South Florida's offensive performance against a porous Illinois defense. The 680 yards of total offense put up by the Bulls is good for the second-most in a single game in program history – only to a 745-yard outburst against Florida A&M in 2011.

31

There was serious consideration through one half of play that Friday's game was going to set a new record for combined penalties. Both teams headed into the break with a combined 26 infractions – needing just 11 to break the existing FBS record of 36 – but were able to get things under control and only commit five the rest of the way.

3 x 100

Not surprisingly, the bulk of South Florida's offense came by way of the ground, with quarterback Quinton Flowers leading the way with 106 yards on 25 carries. Just one yard behind him was Darius Tice at 105 yards on only 12 carries, and just four yards behind him was D'Ernest Johnson with 101 yards on 17 touches.

It's just the second time the Bulls have featured three 100-yard rushers in a single game in program history, the first coming last season against Navy when Flowers, Johnson, and Marlon Mack each eclipsed the century mark.

South Florida, Illinois talk relocating game due to Hurricane Irma

No. 22 South Florida could have its second consecutive game affected by the disastrous effects of Hurricane Irma.

The Bulls are scheduled to take on Illinois at home Friday, after last week's game against UConn was cancelled because of the storm, but with Irma threatening yet again, Illinois has reportedly offered to host the game in order to keep both program's schedules on track, according to Joey Knight of The Tampa Bay Times.

South Florida athletic director Mark Harlan issued a response via Twitter, assuring everyone that the matter will be resolved at the proper time.

“Regarding this, all we care about is keeping everyone safe,” Harlan said. “When appropriate, we will address this and be thoughtful. Everyone take care.”

Illinois spokesman Kent Brown issued an update on the progression of talks between both schools, saying that he does not expect a decision to be announced until Monday at the earliest, according to Tim Ditman of The News-Gazette.

Missouri fires defensive coordinator Cross following loss to South Carolina

It didn't take long for the proverbial ax to fall on the first coaching victim of the regular season, as Missouri head coach Barry Odom announced Sunday that Tigers defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross has been relieved of his duties, according to Dave Matter of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“I am very appreciative of all that DeMontie has done for Mizzou, and am sorry that this did not work out, however, after careful evaluation, I believe it is important to make this change now,” Odom said in his statement.

An unnamed source close to the decision stated that Cross’ dismissal had “zero to do with on-field performance,” according to Matter, although no official reason was given.

Cross was hired by Odom prior to the 2016 season when Odom was named head coach of the Tigers following the retirement of former head coach Gary Pinkel. Cross also coached the Tigers’ inside linebackers.
