South Carolina football is moving on without Perry Orth, or at least without him on the field. The Gamecocks are turning over their quarterback competition to two true freshmen – Jake Bentley and Brandon McIlwain.
South Carolina led UMass 27-7 but a busted play gave the Minutemen an inexcusable 74-yard one-play touchdown. No lead appeared safe, so the Gamecocks let new quarterback Jake Bentley throw the ball downfield and try to get something going.
I guess it’s just things evening out. Through six games, South Carolina’s offense was putrid while the defense was valiant. In the seventh, the Gamecocks’ offense got better while the defense played terribly.
