Gamecocks vs. Aggies aftermath: Cock-A-Doodle-Clicks

The long weekend gives us a little extra time to chew on the South Carolina Gamecocks’ loss to the Texas A&M Aggies. Here’s the media coverage surrounding the aftermath of the game.

P&C: David Caraviello shows how the Gamecocks went back to basics, while at the same time wondering “What the heck happened?”

CFT believes that Kevin Sumlin is worth every bit of the $5 million he’s getting paid to coach Texas A&M.

B/R says there were some good things in Thursday’s loss, including Dylan Thompson (I thought he was OK when he was hitting his passes, but not great).

Tyler Brett at RantSports spotlights what was a very poor secondary on Thursday while pointing out the defense as a whole as a major letdown.

Dallas Morning News looks at the win for A&M as a raising of the bar and lets everyone know that the Aggies aren’t a one-trick pony.

In Action
It wasn’t a lost weekend for Gamecocks athletics, though:
–#12 women’s soccer is now 3-0-0 after a 1-0 double overtime victory over #22 Boston U as Raina Johnson (104′) had the game winner. Milwaukee comes to town on Sunday.
–Men’s soccer got in on the double OT action, too: they topped Belmont 1-0 on a goal by Kurtis Turner. They look to jump to 2-0 on Tuesday when they host that one school from the Upstate.
–Volleyball swept Gardner-Webb in their season opener (25-15, 25-19, 25-21) at the Gamecock Invitational. They’ll play Jacksonville (1pm) and Georgia Tech (7pm) today.
–Men’s golf is tied for 6th after one round of the Carmel Cup at Pebble Beach.
–Women’s cross country opens their season at the Carolina Invitational today.
