I'm honestly not shocked. I figured he'd be gone as soon as BoBo left though.

That took longer than I expected. Will he still follow Bobo (for whatever reason)? Would we be interested?

He's going to Auburn but even if he wasn't I really hope not. Watch his tape and then watch Ty Simpson's tape. Simpson looks like the better player to me.

Lol. Had to go over to the Big Spur to see what they were saying. Surprisingly, only about half are totally delusional. My favorites:

"He was going to have to sit behind Doty for two years anyway."

"Hope he isn't chasing Bobo. Bobo has been at 4 locations over the past 8 years." Poster failed to remember that their new OC coordinator has been at 13 locations in the past 20 years.

And finally, "Once he sees what we put on the field, he will be back."

They might only have about half that are totally delusional, but their measure of totally is a 15 on a ten-point scale. In fact, they would have to change the scale to account for the level of delusion amount some Gamecocks fans.

Lot of Carolina sites spent so much time writing about him coming to SC. Should they have known that was likely not going to happen?

Eh...he's enamored with Bobo for some reason. As long as Bobo was still there he was headed to SCar. Once Beamer retained Bobo it was pretty much a sure thing. And I don't think anyone would have predicted Auburn, with a whole nation of OCs to look through, would have dropped $2M a year on Bobo.

Doesn't say much for the power of Connor Shaw...

His brother is Stockton's high school coach.

I'm sure Stockton was one of the reasons Auburn went after Bobo

Seems like a bad decision to me. Stockton has bust written all over him in my opinion. I'm not convinced his athleticism plays at higher levels of competition, doesn't have a big arm, plays at a small school against small school competition. I get the numbers are gaudy, but it's not like he's going up against the 6A schools from Gwinnett.
