USC looking at 3 QB's, Pinkins still considered leader

(Columbia) Aug. 17, 2004 - Assistant head coach Skip Holtz, who's responsible for the quarterbacks, assessed the QB situation Tuesday after practice.

He again said the number one job belongs to Dondrial Pinkins and so far he looks good in practice. Holtz says sophomore Syvelle Newton and redshirt freshman Blake Mitchell have also been impressive and that all three could see playing time this year, "We've said before, we'll play three of them if we have three we can win with. They all have their own unique abilities. I think Dondrial is the best combination of both as a runner and a thrower. I think Blake is more of a thrower, but he's running the team extremely well. And I think what Newton gives you back there as a running back in the backfield is is a one back and he's still throwing the ball extremely well."

Coach Lou Holtz spoke to the media on Monday after practice, "Our quarterback play was pretty good. I think it was the best Dondrial has played since he's been here. Dondrial knows he's our #1 quarterback. He's very mature and I've been pleased with the chemistry and tempo he has brought to the team. We want to win. I think you'll see both Syvelle and Blake on the field, as well."

The USC ticket office announced Tuesday the Gamecocks' home football games against Georgia (Sept. 11), Mississippi (Oct. 9) and Tennessee (Oct. 30) are sold out.

Tickets are still available for an SEC game against Arkansas on November 6 as well as both of the Gamecocks' non-conference contests (vs. South Florida on Sept. 18 and vs. Troy State on Sept. 25).
