 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  The acrobatic catches were as common as the sight of him going face mask-to-face mask with a defender. South Carolina's Shi Smith showed every bit of his ferocious talent, and temper, during the Gamecocks' 30-22 win over Auburn on Saturday. Smith's receptions were dazzling. The near-constant jawing, the refusal to back down from trash-mouth engagement? Well, he wasn't penalized. And the Gamecocks won, so...No harm done? "I want a guy that's a competitive, composed football player," USC coach Will Muschamp said, emphasizing "composed" with a pause before and after. "He and I have this conversation a lot. When you're really composed, man, you're hard to deal with because you still have your competitive edge and you still have your competitive nature."

Muschamp made it clear he wasn't angry with Smith. He would love to have more Shi Smiths on his roster. But it is difficult to find the balance between a game-breaker and a game-changer, a star receiver third in the SEC and 10th in the country in receptions (34 catches, 347 yards, 3 touchdowns) and a surly headache whose unnecessary actions could swing momentum. The Gamecocks can't afford to have their best (and just about only) receiver hurt their chances of winning. "I got to keep my composure a little bit more. I've been working on it," Smith admitted. "It definitely takes you out your game. With the couple drops I had, they was in my head." - The Post and Courier
