College Football Countdown: 52 Days Until South Carolina Gamecocks Kickoff

| by

Today there are 52 days until kickoff.

52 is the most games ever played by a South Carolina Gamecock.  Before I tell you who it is, I'll give you some hints and the opportunity to guess. 

To get to 52, it would have to be a 4 year player.  A 3 year player simply wouldn't have been on the team enough years. 

Likewise, the player would have played fairly recently since the schedule has increased. 

Know who it is? 

Patrick DiMarco played in 52 games from 2007-2010. 

The fullback from Florida was a tremendous asset to the team who opened up his fair share of holes and caught plenty of passes in the flats.  In addition to 12 regular season games each season, DiMarco played in 4 bowl games and one SEC championship game to reach 52.
