Takeaways From The Gamecocks 38-3 Loss To Clemson

It’s finally over.

This season is finally over, and I’m sitting here wondering what the hell happened because I never expected to finish 4-8 before the season.

Yes, the schedule was tough. However, there were a lot of embarrassing losses shadowed by one fluke upset. 

I’ve seen bad football before.

Trust me, I’m a Bears fan. However, that Clemson loss was one of the most disappointing games I’ve watched as a South Carolina fan.

I can’t blame the players for this loss. They put everything they had into this game, and I want to thank them for giving their all this season.

I blame the coaching for this performance.

You had two weeks to come up with a game plan for Clemson. Yes, they’re a more talented team, but you had two weeks and you come out and do the same stupid stuff you’ve done all season.

For the first time in awhile I can say this didn’t feel like a rivalry game.

There have been some coaching changes made since the loss. Strength and conditioning coach Jeff Dillman and quarterbacks coach Dan Werner have been fired.

Bryan McClendon has been relieved of his playcalling duties. I don’t agree with this move honestly.

How many coaches is South Carolina going to rotate before they realize Muschamp is the problem?

If Dillman and McClendon were able to find success at their former schools, how come they couldn’t do anything at South Carolina?

I still agree with former Gamecock Mason Zandi, who said the injuries are a result of overworking the players.

That’s on Muschamp.

Muschamp hasn’t shown in any of his years of being a head coach that he can create an offense. You have literally one of the best, if not, the best receiver in program history, and you can’t do anything on offense.

I will still stand by my opinion that Muschamp needs to go, and if you somehow are still supporting him, I’d like to hear what he’s shown to make you think he can still coach this team.

4-8 is unacceptable even by South Carolina standards, and I really hope Ray Tanner either makes a move, or he leaves the program with Muschamp.

It’s been a hell of a season to say the least, and I can’t wait to see what next year holds for this struggling program.
