This just in – Spurrier clueless, or playing joke

WelcomeFirst this was reported – “USC football coach Steve Spurrier says wide receiver Lamar Scruggs and running back Eric Baker are transferring to Appalachian State.” Then a Cock blog said not so fast. Later GoGamecocks tweeted further information – “We have no idea what our coach is talking about.*”

    I have a buddy who's a Cocks fan and he says Scruggs is coming here.

    I hope so. As of right now we have 2 WR's. Assuming Malichi Jones is red shirted.

    Little Birdie thinks this story is just what the doctor ordered.

    Not sure what the excitement is about. Even if they were coming here you need to look at their resume. neither one has done anything. I remember the big deal when we got a rb transfer from VT. What was his name again?

    The USC website seems to confirm it. They have been plagued with injuries though. Both were 4-star recruits but the injury bug got them both. They could help with depth and bring some skill but who knows, maybe they could produce. It helps USC with their scholarship situation. Anyway, welcome them if they show up on the field.

    USC is Southern Cal, not South Carolina. Just throwing that out there.

    OK Sir Tech. University of South Carolina. You know what the discussion was about. Just throwing that out there.

    USC is both. Unless we are no longer going to call ourselves ASU, because technically that's Arizona State…


    May 23, 2012 at 9:05 am

    From a branding perspective, we are App State, not ASU.

    spurrier said they are transferring because he also knows that we have an sec invite pending.

    Yes I know MIDWEST, but my point is we still go by ASU. The guy who was nit-picking about USC is just a troll.

    now Appthunder is funny! even I am not that optomistic…Midwest I know all of my posts are speculative and circumstantial based 100% on analyzing the other information and trends…which makes them 100%BS, but I am interested where you get your info from because as abrasive (honest) as you post you seem to have some interesting info that much of the rest of us do not have access to. Help us out and give us some source content

    Haha 13 I'm not a troll. I was just raised on USC football because I have a ton of family from California. It's always been a pet peeve of mine since I was little. Just like when South Carolina fans call themselves Carolina. They're the only ones in the country who think they are Carolina as opposed to North Carolina.

    If you find any validity in things MIDWEST posts, you clearly haven't been on Appfan long. I agree here and there, like with the proposal to hire an outside agency to handle this whole situation, but there's no way he has a source at all, let alone a credible one. It's just another idea of his, professed in factual verbiage. Don't be fooled.

    I see what you're saying, Lacrosse. I hate UNC, but it really ticks me off when people from Univ. of South Carolina call themselves Carolina. You're right, they are they only ones that do that!

  23. Russ

    May 23, 2012 at 10:16 am

    Gonzo, I'm not fooled, I was beating around the bush, but I can be more staight forward if you like….I would like to know where Midwest comes up with his info…I doubt we will evr learn of his "sources" or dealmakers or bigwhigs or whatever. I also think you both take yourselves a bit too seriously, but after observing you and midwest battle each other over the last 3 years I have come to respect/agree more with many of your arguments than his because you tend to reference your material.

    I very rarely get into it with MW. Especially compared to his battles with Carbine and Gwalt.

    There are those who recite poetry and some who choose to write poetry.

    Let it be known that I was the first to announce that we were not going to join the Sunbelt.

    Was that before or after you said "App to CUSA is a done deal?"

    Yea USC is southern cal when you are watching a game what do they put in the box beside the score when south carolina is playing. I have never seen USC, it has always been So. Car or something along those lines. ASU is not appalachian state it is arizona state. I just think it is funny because i am from sc but live in ca and the peeps there call it usc or southern cal, or University of Spoiled Childern because it is about 40,000 a year to go to and it is a private school and they officially have bought the coliseum now even though it is on campus closer than where the rock is to campus.
