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.
