Tonight Phil Kornblut joined us live on location from Seawell’s in Columbia for the annual “Palmetto Champions Award Banquet.”

Phil was lucky enough to borrow some time from two of the state’s “Mr. Football” finalists.

First up, early on in the program, was Wren quarterback and Clemson commit for the 2015 class, Kelly Bryant.  Bryant talked about his season, shedding the “athlete” label as a recruit, and what his plans are headed to Clemson as an early enrollee in a couple of weeks.

A short time later Phil got a hold of a future Gamecock, and fellow Mr. Football finalist, Summerville offensive lineman Zack Bailey.  Bailey expounded upon his time with the Green Wave, looked ahead to his move to Columbia, and discussed transitioning from a legendary high school football coach in John McKissick to the legendary Steve Spurrier in college.

Tonight we welcomed back into SportsTalk our prognosticator extraordinaire and purveyor of Paramount Sports, Lee Sterling.

This week’s picks can be looked at two different ways, the final week of the regular season, pre-bowl games, or the first week of the post-season because this week we’ll be crowning conference champions.

Lee took a stab at predicting the outcomes of the ACC and SEC championships, and more.

Due to prior engagements for both parties of our M&M Boys segment tonight, we had to split our time with former Gamecock linebacker Corey Miller and former Clemson offensive lineman Will Merritt into two separate, individual segments.

First up tonight to recap Saturday’s matchup between the Tigers and Gamecocks was Will, who was kind enough to participate despite having a speaking engagement.  Will provided his thoughts on his Tigers finally breaking the Gamecocks winning streak behind the gutsy performance of freshman quarterback DeShaun Watson.

AUDIO: Will Merritt [7:30]

Later in tonight’s program we got ahold of WACH Fox sports anchor Corey Miller to get his thoughts on this past weekend’s action at Death Valley.  Corey predicted a Gamecock victory in last week’s installment, and told us where he went wrong in that prediction.  He also was highly critical of Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney’s decision to play his star quarterback in the rivalry game with a torn ligament in his knee.
