The S.C. State football team is 7-3 thus far this season, and is quietly making a push for the MEAC title.  So, we decided to dial up Bulldog head coach Buddy Pough to check in on the program, and preview their upcoming matchup with Morgan State Saturday.

Coach Pough gave us the brief scouting report on the Bears, talked a little cold weather, and told us what an outright conference title would mean to him, after his squad shared it last season.

The Bulldogs and Bears will kick things off tomorrow at 1:00 in Baltimore.

Tonight we welcomed in to the program the man leading the Ospreys into the CLA this weekend, North Atlantic head coach Matt Driscoll.

This season will mark the 6th season for Driscoll, a former assistant at Clemson, at the helm as the lead man coaching the Ospreys in Jacksonville.

Tonight coach Driscoll provided us with some insight concerning his team, and what he plans on the matchup with the Gamecocks looking like.

USC and North Florida will tip things off at 7:00 at the Colonial Life Arena.

Sterling Predictions with Paramount Sports Lee Sterling (AUDIO)

Thursdays we bring in our prognosticator extraordinaire, Lee Sterling of Paramount Sports, to help provide his take on the weekend gridiron action coming our way on Saturdays.

This weekend is quite the weekend for not only USC and Clemson, but the national slate is huge as well.

The struggling USC football team’s fortunes get no better, as they head to the swamp to take on a Florida Gators squad that has seemingly figured a couple of things out of late.  Lee believes the wrong team is favored in this one however.

Clemson gets their stud quarterback back for their matchup in Atlanta with Georgia Tech, and Lee sees that as being the difference maker as he takes the Tigers over the Jackets by double-digits.

Lee also broke down the heavyweight matchups that are taking place all over the map this Saturday.

For hump days at SportsTalk we like to welcome to the show two friends of ours who not only accomplished a lot on the gridiron for the two major college programs in our state, but also went on to cover their respective schools down the road in some capacity in the field of broadcasting.

Former USC linebacker and NFL vet Corey Miller joins former Clemson offensive lineman Will Merritt in what is quickly becoming one of our most popular segments, the M&M Boys on SportsTalk.

Miller’s Gamecocks are struggling, especially on defense, and are headed to the Swamp Saturday.   USC has historically not played very well in Gainesville, either.  The Pastor of Pain tells us how he sees the USC/UF matchup shaking out this weekend.

Merritt’s Tigers are getting a shot in the arm, welcoming back freshman phenom quarterback DeShaun Watson when they head to Atlanta Saturday to take on Georgia Tech.  The home team has one the last five in this contest.  Will tells us if he believes recent trends will be bucked, or if the triple option will be too much for the Tiger D once again.

Panthers voice Mick Mixon on Monday’s loss at Philly (AUDIO)

Carolina PanthersTypically our visit with Carolina Panthers play-by-play man Mick Mixon occurs on Monday night, but with Carolina partaking in Monday night football festtivities, we were forced to postpone our get together until Tuesday.

Unforturnately the festivites were none too kind to the Panthers last night.  Carolina turned the ball over five times, and gave up a punt return for a score as well, as the Eagles blew out the Panthers 45-21 in Philly.

Tonight Mick provided us his view of where the team stands now, with major offensive issues, moving forward.
