When Coastal Carolina rushed the field to celebrate its 2016 baseball national championship, Matt Eardensohn was watching from the stands.The Chanticleers were more than 1,300 miles from their Conway stadium, on a foreign field in Omaha, Neb.Eardensohn, now a member of the Coastal Carolina team, was just a few miles away from his childhood home, on summer break from junior college in Iowa.“I pretty much went to the College World Series every year growing up,” he said. “When Coastal won it all, I didn’t really know much about the school.”But when he was recruited to Coastal ahead of his junior year, Eardensohn quickly did his homework. The 2016 title was an easy sell, but so was his research that proved Coastal’s success wasn’t a fluke.“They had been knocking on the door to Omaha for a few years,” he said. “It’s just a really solid program here and I learned how underrated they are.”Just about every … [Read more...] about Coastal Carolina could be best baseball team in South Carolina this season

Duane Rankin Montgomery Advertiser Published 9:08 p.m. UTC Jul 19, 2018 ATLANTA — South Carolina looks like it’s turning the corner in football. The Gamecocks won nine games for the first time since 2013 when going 11-2 under Steve Spurrier.

The Gamecocks open the season Sept. 1 against Coastal Carolina followed by a stern Week 2 test against defending SEC champion Georgia at home. “I think winning those big … [Read more...] about Is South Carolina legit SEC title contenders?
