Times are changing in Columbia, South Carolina, where new mayor Steve Benjamin wrecked his car on his first day on the job.
And for the South Carolina football team, spring practice ended with the Gamecocks' annual Garnet and Black Game, which saw plenty of good things, and some bad.
For example, tight end Justice Cunningham showed that he was more than just a blocker. The defense played, well, you couldn't really tell—many starters remained on the sidelines, injured.
The offensive line did not reveal any news, which is good news, while the running backs performed nicely in the game.
From what I can tell, SC's receiving corps will be loaded in 2010, and the same can be said for the team's defense. However, it's too early to pass judgment on the offensive line, which has given Carolina plenty of problems before.
As for the quarterbacks, head coach Steve Spurrier won't let Stephen Garcia wrap-up the job to freshman Connor Shaw just yet. Suffice to say, Spurrier will be after his QBs come fall.
