Shane Beheler: Like the commentator said. We keep finding away to win Ugly! And this game was very ugly! 3int and a fumble? Tons of busted coverage, in all honesty. We was just lucky that Florida is a dumpster fire right now. If They would’ve just been semi decent this year, we would’ve been demolished the way we played. With all the turnovers, and the way coverage was busted on several plays.
Mardrette Kemp: SC dined on some gator tail!
Keith Thompkins: Before season started everyone predicted Gamecocks to win only four games . I’ll take an ugly win to make it seven! Go cocks!
