My hopes are dwindling for Gettis. 

 

I would love to see him grab that 5th slot. (on my depth chart)  His speed alone is gives us much more opportunities underneath.

 

Smitty

LaFell

Ginn

AE

I think you gotta throw Hixon in there as the #3 even though he's not practicing right now.  He and Ginn with both see time at the 3. AE is definitely in the top 5 - he's ahead of Ginn at this point in the depth chart and with the plays he's making.

I don't know about you all, but we need some help at TE.

Completely agree. Right now we've got Olsen and...........................blank.

 

I think Gettleman will have his eyes peeled for somebody as we inch closer toward august. I hope.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera insists No. 2 TE Ben Hartsock is a good complement to Greg Olsen.

 

Hartsock is a mediocre blocker and a liability in the passing game. But to hear Rivera tell it, he's a key piece. "You look at his catches, they're all on the underneath routes – the quick ins, the quick outs. People miss the value of that when you have one tight end that can stretch the field and the other one that can attack the middle." Greg Olsen is going to push for 90-plus percent of the snaps once again this year.

When Rivera says things like this it gives me pause. Hartsock has been in the league since 2004, and he's on his fifth team. During that time span he's accumulated 312 yards and one TD, which occured back in 2009 with the Jets.

 

I'm sorry but this does not make me feel better in the slightest. It makes me feel a lot worse actually.

Who knows maybe Shula is planning on more 3 WR sets and having two good TE's is less of priority, but I'd still expect us to pick up a TE during the training camp cuts.

 

Also since Gettis isn't a RR guy (drafted before he got here), I wouldn't be surprised if we kept Adams or Pilares over Gettis.

Not only do I hate Joe Person as a beat writer, but when I found out he was a USC GameDick, it made me hate him as a person (punny)

He wasn't a Gamecock, he just worked for a website called "gogamecocks.com" which is a run off of "The State" newspaper, which is the last place I go for Gamecock news.  He was horrible there too.   If we were lucky enough for him to go cover another team and Panther fans had to deal with the stigma that we were Person fans,  we would all hate him even more.  This is how Gamecock fans feel about him.  At least we were smart enough to get rid of him.   

 

And by the way, why do you hate the Gamecocks so much?

Among a multitude of reasons, I will pick out my top 2:

I used to hate Spurrier when he coached the gators.  He always seemed smug.  However, I really feel that his vibe and persona have changed since those days, especially since he got an opportunity to fail in the pros.  Since he's been our coach I've grown to admire him for his honesty, integrity,  and his ability to build a program.  He's done a lot of great things not only for the University but the state as a whole.   There are new complexes built at the school with the money he's helped bring in.  You could argue he's had a small role in the recent success of our baseball team because of the investments in the new stadium/ facility, money he helped bring in.  USC has recently opened a Gamecock store  on King St down here in Charleston that also has USC guidance counselors on staff helping prospective students.  

 

We used to get no respect in football.  Now we've finished top 12 the past two years, top 25 the past 4 or 5 seasons.  We own Clemson.  We've owned any NC based school. Point blank, he's turned us into the best team in the region.   If he decided to leave USC and be closer to Pinehurst and coach ECU you would be ecstatic.  

 

But yes a lot of Gamecock fans are obnoxious, UGA fans are the worst.

 

Plus because of him we have those badass camo unis.

joe Person sucks as a beat writer, most of his stuff seems to be what if or could be, he's a reporter he should be focused on facts.

Can't disagree with anything you said. However, hatred for South Carolina (notice I don't call it USC or even worse what really makes my blood boild is when it's referred to as CAROLINA), is ingrained in my DNA I suppose.
