Muschamp’s message to Gamecocks: Beating Clemson could ‘right the ship'
Nov. 17, 2019, | GCF Staff Report
First off would beating Clemson make your off season better? Muschamp is counting on it.
In two weeks, defending national champion Clemson comes to town. Tigers have undefeated record and a roster loaded with future NFL players. The Gamecocks’ roster is in ragged shape, and USC (4-7) will be lucky if the point spread is within three touchdowns.
But coming out of Carolina’s 30-6 loss to Texas A&M to lock in a 3-5 SEC record, coach Will Muschamp had a little message for his players.
Gamecock corner Jaycee Horn said. “Like coach Muschamp said, we can right a lot of wrongs by beating Clemson,” That’s a top-four opponent, a big rival here. So we’ve got to go back to the drawing board and give it our all one last time.”
Gamecocks season was revitalized with an upset of Georgia, but the momentum gained there was undone by losses to Tennessee and Appalachian State. Beating Clemson wouldn’t bring USC a bowl spot and it might not even keep the Tigers from the playoff field but it would give the team something else to hang its hat on.
Been a long time and could be longer since the Gamecocks got a win in this series, the last one coming in 2013. To long for many Gamecock fans The five-game skid has come by an average of a whopping 23.4 points. The closest game was five points, the next closest was 18.
