Happy Sunday, South Carolina fans.
Alas, a disappointing football season has reached its end. South Carolina dropped its fifth consecutive game to Clemson, which should close the chapter on a whole era of Gamecocks football.
Here are six things to know:
- Report: A potential SEC coaching target accepted the job at Virginia tech. Memphis’ Justin Fuente may no longer be in the mix to take over for Steve Spurrier.
- South Carolina running back Brandon Wilds missed the second half of the Clemson game. Wilds sustained an unknown injury in his final game at the university.
- South Carolina fans throw bottles at Clemson wide receiver after touchdown. Another fan flipped the bird.
- Report: Houston’s Tom Herman “killed the South Carolina thing.” Herman said he was focused on Houston, not other coaching possibilities.
- Shawn Elliott postgame press conference: “This isn’t a funeral”
- South Carolina’s next coach will play a big role in whether linebacker Skai Moore returns for his senior season. Moore has led the team in tackles each of the past three seasons.
