SportsTalk Rewind 4.14.14 (VIDEO)

You could make an argument that this was the biggest weekend in sports in the state of South Carolina.  Our two FBS level football programs, both top ten finishers the previous season, had their spring games for their respective fanbases to get a good look at the future of the program.

Steve Spurrier said the highlight of the Garnet and Black game was women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley coming off the bench to catch a touchdown pass from Dylan Thompson.  We also heard more post game thoughts from the OBC as well.

In the upstate, most of the pub concerning the Tigers spring game was about the lackluster performance of quarterback Chad Kelly who threw two interceptions, and was involved in an incident with coaches on the sidelines after he was benched.  Monday we learned that Kelly, who was vying for the starting position as the signal caller in ’14, had been dismissed from the program.

We heard spring game comments from the guy who will now be the clear favorite as the starting QB next season, Cole Stoudt.

Larry Williams from Tigerillustrated.com also joined us on the program to give us the latest on the Chad Kelly situation and provided us with his thoughts on what’s taken place with the enigmatic quarterback in the past 48 hours.

Tonight we reviewed the opening round of the Masters down in Augusta, and heard some comments from South Carolina native Bill Haas whose name sits atop the leaderboard after day one.

Clemson basketball coach Brad Brownell was kind enough to join us on the program tonight to put a bow on the 2013-14 campaign, discuss star forward KJ McDaniel’s impending decision on whether or not to turn pro, and look ahead to next season as well.

We also heard some comments from USC baseball coach Chad Holbrook regarding the Gamecocks weekend series with the Florida Gators in Columbia, and much more.

On tonight’s episode of SportsTalk we heard some post practice comments from Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney following the Tigers practice in the upstate.  Defensive coordinator Brent Venables was not a very happy camper today either, we heard from him regarding his unit’s effort as well.

SportsTalk legend Don Williams joined us from Augusta to provide us with a Masters preview, too.

Mike Morgan of the Braves Radio Network joined us for his nightly segment to talk all things Braves, too, and much more.

Tonight we were all in studio for the second night in a row (a rarity) to talk some sports on a Tuesday.

The USC football team held its final spring practice with media availability today.  We heard some comments from head coach Steve Spurrier leading up to the spring game taking place Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium.  We also heard from defensive line coach Deke Adams and secondary coach Grady Brown.

Our state’s time to shine on the NASCAR calendar is fast approaching.  The Bojangles Southern 500 will be going green Saturday night in Darlington.  Darlington President Chip Wile joined us, as he does every Tuesday, to preview his race one last time.

It’s Masters week as well so we heard some comments from “Lefty” and much more.

Tonight we all reconvened in our SportsTalk studios in downtown Columbia to recap the weekend’s sports action.

The USC baseball team had two of three taken from them down in Fayetteville by the Razorbacks and Clemson had to culminate its series with NC State tonight.

Korn, KMac, and Pro also provided their general thoughts on the weekend race and, of course, touched on the final four.

We also heard comments from USC head football coach Steve Spurrier and defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward following their weekend scrimmage.

The Clemson football team scrimmaged Monday, and we heard post scrimmage reaction from head coach Dabo Swinney tonight as well.
