Gamecocks players thought on new uniforms  ‘That Black Magic is something special.’


August 14, 2019



The 2019 Gamecocks enter the season unranked, but at some point they’ll look like one of the more famous teams in program history. “That Black Magic is something special,” junior safety Jamyest Williams said Wednesday, “you know what I’m saying? Magical things are coming soon.” Senior linebacker Eldridge Thompson said the Gamecocks have yet to see the new uniforms in person. Just like the fans, they were excited Tuesday when the school-produced video was released on social media.


“We haven’t even seen them,” Thompson said. “We’ve just seen them on the internet. But I do like the stripes on the outside. It’s different from our other black ones.” South Carolina’s previous black jerseys — worn twice last season — feature garnet and white stripes on the shoulders. The new black jerseys have stripes on the sleeves.


“I’m ready to switch it up a little bit,” Thompson said. “I can’t wait.” Though it’s yet to be determined when the Gamecocks will wear their throwbacks, both Williams and Thompson have suggestions. “The first game,” Williams said of the Aug. 31 opener with North Carolina in Charlotte, “come out striking. ... Hopefully we get to wear that Black Magic suit the first game.
