THOMPSON GOES TO TENNESSEE(-MARTIN)

I must admit that I have been scooped on a South Carolina story by EDSBS.
If, of course, missing the transfer of a QB who was quickly sliding down the depth chart counts as being scooped. (HT: EDSBS)
Transfer? Yes. Significant? Eh.
The likelihood is that Thompson read the writing on the wall. Blake Mitchell is the starting QB. Chris Smelley is the backup. And Stephen Garcia is now The Savior of the Program.
Which left Cade Thompson with a promising career in clipboard holding.
But, still ... UT-Martin?

UT martin is a school with a pretty good football program. They were ranked high this year among single A schools, although they do not have the high calibur program that USC does. But that is to be expected. As for Cade Thompson, i believe he is an extremely promising player, which Spurier will see this year. At least, much more promising than Garcia who has already been in trouble this year for public intoxication and rowdy behavior. Cade thompson seems to take his football career a little more seriously, and it has paid off which we saw last year in the spring scrimmage where his team slaughtered Blake Mitchells team. So if you consider cade thompson an "eh" player who has a future holding a clip board, I can say that is more of a future than the person who wrote this highly incorrect article.

haha I guess if your into goofy looking guys blake mitchell is okay. For the record, Thompson proved himself this year when we he recieved Ohio Valley Conference Player of the week two weeks in a row, and even made the Ohio Valley Conference Team for this year and is projected to be in the NFL draft 2010. We will just see how they play next year against high calibur teams like Auburn...who kills south carolina every year.
I am absolutely in love with cade thompson...so ha!

I love how smelley is trying to now pursue baseball, garcia and beecher are sucking it up, and coach spurrier is now asking for thompson's footage tapes..probably so he can sit there and cry and realize that he kicked himself in the ass by letting thompson go! I have always been a cade thompson fan and it is nice to see him finally receive the credit he deserves. 1st team all conference over perriloux and almost beating a SEC school! Way to go Thompson can't wait to see you in the draft next year!

I have always been a Cade Thompson fan and am glad to finally see him get the credit he deserves. Beating out perriloux for first team all conference and almost beating an SEC team, is pretty respectable! Way to go Cade can't wait to see you in the draft next year!
