Holy cow...I ddont know how you saw all that. I gave up and made it a social occasion. I just gotta remember to do some sort of a scaffold affair for next year's Spring and opening practice.

Great Job Spurt.....there was good crowd murmur about Garcia.

Thanks Again

Great report as always Spurticus. I noticed from the article from the Charleston paper on this site that the Sunday evening practice is also open to the public. I hope some fill in for Spurticus if he goes to the beach as planned.
I am not surprised Lecorn is adapting quickly you don't have 1,000 yards in your junior and senior years in receiving by just showing up.

Personnel shifts. In a sign of new offensive depth, two veterans have been shifted to defense.

Senior Mike West is back at outside linebacker, where he was a full-time starter in 2005. He played receiver last season, catching six passes for 66 yards and two touchdowns.

But with five true freshmen receivers on the team, West is back to his old position.

“We thought with all those freshmen receivers, he’d have a better chance of playing on defense,” Spurrier said.

Senior Ryan Brown has also moved back to the other side, switching from fullback to defensive end. Brown started eight games at defensive end last season, but was shifted to fullback in the spring.

In addition, three freshmen walk-ons have been added to the roster: quarterback Zac Brindise (Fort Myers, Fla.), cornerback Cedric Snead (Garner, N.C.) and deep snapper Chris Vaughn.

Ingram absent. Linebacker Melvin Ingram missed his first college practice. The highly-regarded freshman from Hamlet, N.C., was attending a family funeral, according to team spokesman Steve Fink.

Practice open again. Spurrier said tonight’s practice will be open to the public. He had originally announced that Saturday’s opener would be the only open practice until the first scrimmage.

“I appreciate them coming out (Saturday night),” Spurrier said. “Come out again (tonight), and then Monday we’ll close up for a while until we have our first scrimmage.”

About those receivers. It was just the first practice, but the new receivers had a good enough showing for Spurrier. The coach split them into three groups: The tall guys (Jason Barnes and Joe Hills), the 6-foot-1 and 6-2 guys (Dion Lecorn and Matt Clements), and the speedster (Chris Culliver).

“These freshmen receivers, they all can run, and they look pretty good,” Spurrier said.

QB Mitchell one of eight players suspended for the fall’s first practice

By JOSEPH PERSON - jperson@thestate.com


JEFF BLAKE/JBLAKE@THESTATE.COM
From left, quarterbacks Stephen Garcia, Zac Brindise, Chris Smelley and Tommy Beecher drop back.

Blake Mitchell began the 2007 season in a position he became all too familiar with last season — on the sideline.

South Carolina’s starting quarterback was one of eight players suspended for Saturday’s first preseason practice for violating team and university policy, Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier said after the 2 ½-hour session at the Bluff Road practice facility.

Sources told The State the players were disciplined following excessive absences during summer school.

Other players held out included twin brothers Jordin and Dustin Lindsey, starting cornerback Carlos Thomas, backup tailback Bobby Wallace, backup cornerback Chris Hail and reserve defensive linemen Terrence Campbell and Kenrick Ellis. Jordin Lindsey is a returning starter at defensive end.

The players also must sit out tonight’s practice, with the exception of the Lindsey brothers, who did not attend Saturday’s session and will not be back until the end of next week at the earliest.

Mitchell, a fifth-year senior from LaGrange, Ga., is beginning his third season in Spurrier’s Cock ‘n’ Fire offense. Spurrier did not hide his dismay in his quarterback.

“It was disappointing, but he’s done some disappointing things before,” Spurrier said. “So it doesn’t shock me, let’s put it that way. Anyway, we’ll get it behind us here in a couple days.”

While Mitchell and the other suspended players ran wind sprints and did sit-ups, USC’s three backup quarterbacks got plenty of work in front of the crowd of 3,100, which included a wedding party that dropped by briefly with the bride still in her gown.

Freshman Stephen Garcia, suspended for spring practice following two arrests in a two-week span, made his Gamecocks’ debut. Garcia made a couple of nice throws in passing drills, highlighted by a touch pass to fellow freshman Jason Barnes on a corner route.

“Stephen threw the ball around decently, nothing spectacular yet,” Spurrier said. “These freshman receivers — they all can run and they all look pretty good. So (we’re) excited about those guys.”

Barnes, a 6-foot-3, 203-pounder from Charlotte’s Independence High, showed off good route-running skills. Freshman Chris Culliver, a speedy receiver from Raleigh, had a few grabs, but dropped three punts during special teams work.

Joseph Hills, another freshman receiver, scraped his knee going into the hedges after hauling in a deep throw. In addition to the young guns, tight end Jared Cook and returning receiver Freddie Brown both caught multiple passes during the 7-on-7 drill.

Garcia split reps with redshirt freshman Chris Smelley and redshirt sophomore Tommy Beecher, all three of whom are thought to be competing for the No. 2 spot. Of course, Mitchell appeared to have a handle on the top spot before a tumultuous 2006 campaign.

After starting the first two games, Mitchell was benched for seven weeks in favor of the more mobile Syvelle Newton as the Gamecocks struggled to find consistency along their offensive line.

Mitchell’s demotion coincided with his arrest for punching a bouncer at a Five Points bar — a charge that was later dropped.

The enigmatic Mitchell played some of his best football after returning to the starting lineup. The 6-foot-3, 211-pound right-hander completed 69 percent of his passes for 1,467 yards and 10 touchdowns over the final 18 quarters of the season.

Mitchell, who was not made available to the media Saturday, stopped and signed autographs for several fans as he left the field. Senior tailback Cory Boyd said he looked forward to getting Mitchell back.

“He’s got things he needs to handle on his own. We know he’s out here. His spirit is still out here,” Boyd said. “He still knows the plays. It’s just giving an opportunity for the younger guys to get out there and showcase what they can do.”

Note Garcia and Brindise, they need to learn to hold that ball higher the way Spurrier likes, and get their feet uncrossed. Easy to pick out the rookies here.

No reason to get too worried too soon about Mitchell, this worked out fine, let the others get some snaps, Mitchell will get most of them when he comes back.
