An Ugly Win is Still a Win, v2.0
I wasn't able to get my thoughts on the East Carolina game up last week as I was traveling until late Saturday night. I'm not going to say much about this one other than it's great to get the win. This is especially evident after the egg laid last week at Kentucky. Wins are going to be hard to come by this year, and this one will be one of the few.
Teriyaki Chicken Wings
Chris Lammons - 4 Wings
After a terrible outing against Mississippi State and getting called out by Muschamp, Lammons responded with one of the best statistical performances for a cornerback I can remember. 8 total tackles (6 solo), 2 TFLs, a sack with a forced fumble, and an end-zone interception. We don't win the game without Lammons' performance.
Brandon McIlwain - 2 Wings
McIlwain gave the Gamecocks their first multi-touchdown game to date with his 2 rushing TDs in the 1st Quarter.
Jamarcus King - 2 Wings
Had 6 tackles and an amazing end-zone interception.
Antoine Wilder - 1 Wing
In his first ever significant action at safety forced a fumble near the goal line preventing the Pirates from getting the winning score.
David Williams - 1 Wing
Had arguably his best day ever in garnet and black by leading the team in rushing and getting 9.6 yards / carry. Also had a reception for 16 yards.
Bryan Edwards - 1 Wing
Led the team both catches and receiving. Had a huge play on the 2nd series
D.J. Wonnum - 1 Wing
The true freshman had 2 TFLs and a sack.
