Today there are 50 days until kickoff. Fifty days is good to say and we are ready for Gamecocks football.
50 or 50.3 was the completion rate by South Carolina's opponents last season. The pass defense has been a strength for years, but last year was an exceptional year.
Opponents barely completed half the passes they attempted, and they threw more interceptions, 19, than touchdowns, 14.
This season the pass defense should be stout again.
The secondary is filled with players with extensive experience, and the front 4 should be able to put consistent pressure on quarterbacks.
That was last season's recipe, and it should work again this year.
