Thanksgiving was a time to reflect on what we have. Appreciating the little things is essential, especially for organizations like South Carolina. There are many great stories surrounding them.
However, it is human nature to look to the future and want things. Christmas is the season of gift-giving, and every child writes a list waiting for the morning when they can rush to the tree for presents.
South Carolina’s wishes aren’t necessarily specific, but they are essential. If you have a few important stories to monitor over the holiday season, your program limits may increase.
Spencer Ratler and Antoine Wells are back
Quarterback Spencer Ratler and wide receiver Antwain Wells have big decisions to make. Considering I dreamed of playing professionally, the NFL is right in front of me and a tough opportunity to turn down.
However, going back to school could benefit both. Wells has one more season of P5 experience, and he’ll be one of the top-returning wideouts in the country.
Rattler gets another season to show raters that the last two games were no fluke. Since entering college, he’s dealt with consistency issues, and weathering the storm of 2023 has changed his stock.
Success of Dowell Loggains
Offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains will be the talk of Columbia throughout the offseason. The athletic department believed in the vision of where he wanted to attack, so they brought him in.
South Carolina (8-4) had one of the best seasons of the past decade, despite some dismal offensive play at times. Loggain needs to leverage playmakers and allow units to reach their potential.
There are many factors that contribute to success as a coordinator, but the final outcome is determined by your results. He’s already resonated with recruits, as quarterback his LaNorris Sellers flipped a commitment weeks after getting acquainted with his Loggains.
Shane Beamer contract extension
This looks like a non-if situation. Head coach Shane Beamer has had great success in his first two seasons running the program and deserves an extension.
Beamer now makes $2.5 million a year. Considering Vanderbilt didn’t release details of head coach Clark Lee’s deal, this is the lowest point in the conference.
According to reports, representatives of the university and Beamer are in contract negotiations. He deserves extra years and a raise, and they’ll probably reward him.
