–  Jordan Jones is good to go in Flannigan’s place.  Stoops revealed earlier this week on his radio show that the true freshman linebacker had suffered a knee sprain during last week’s game.  Stoops said today that Jones has been practicing at 100% this week and is prepared to fill in Flannigan’s place by committee, alongside Khalid Henderson.

–  Young guys still have a lot to learn.  Game reps have given them film to analyze, “there’s no replacing those.”  However, he knows it all won’t be fixed in a week, “Some of it’s to be expected, but there’s still very little tolerance for it.”

–  “Throw ’em into the fire.”  The young guys learned a lot last week, but you cannot simulate the Sandstorm.  The coaching staff preaches good habits, but you never know what will happen when the rubber youth hits the road.

–  It’s nice to (kinda) know what South Carolina is going to do.  It’s tough to gameplan when you have NO idea what the other team is going to do.  That’s what happened last week.  This week, Stoops has a better idea, but you never know what you’re going to get with Steve Spurrier, “It definitely helps just to get the base.  I don’t think anybody is going to completely change their philosophy, but you’re going to get new wrinkles all the time.”

–  South Carolina is going to snap it to multiple people.  Last year it was the Wildcats that won the game with the Wildcat formation.  This year the Gamecocks will flip the script; last week five different players took a snap.  They’ve prepared and made adjustments but, “It really doesn’t matter to us who they snap it to outside of the quarterback.”

I like where your head’s at coach, so long as you keep Pharoh Cooper contained.

    Stoops is nothing more than a used car salesman.

    So you’re saying Stupes and Company had NO idea what Louisiana LaFayette was going to do? Are you kidding me? If that’s true, he should be fired immediately. Either you are making up things to fit the usual KSR spin or Stupes really said it, in which case he should be fired immediately for incompetence. You ‘posed to be SEC.
