Hello, South Carolina fans. Beat writer Ryan Wood here. Hope you're enjoying the bye week. I certainly am. Let's get to your questions.
Steve Spurrier talked about Davis' shoulder yesterday. Davis came down hard on his shoulder while catching the downfield pass on the sideline. But, given two weeks, Davis is expected to be fine before USC hosts Florida.
I expect Wilds will return to the No. 2 tailback role, and USC may use Carson specifically for runs designed to get to the outside. That way, Carson's speed is still an asset, but Wilds have consistently been higher on the depth chart than Carson when healthy. That said, Mike Davis is still the beginning, middle and end of USC's plans to run the football this season.
I'm sure there was more attention given to Ellington. Before evaluating the tape, Steve Spurrier didn't know exactly what MSU did that Mizzou didn't. Clearly, the most appealing matchup Saturday went to Shaq Roland, who caught to touchdown passes and bust out of a season-long slump. For the most part, that's how South Carolina's passing game has worked this year. Connor Shaw has several targets to choose from. From game to game, you don't know who the lead guy will be.
Probably, unless you expect South Carolina beat Alabama in Atlanta.
Well, there's always Clemson. Clowney hasn't had a sack since Vanderbilt, which is shocking. Nobody expect him to be sitting on two sacks at this point in the season, but that's where he is.
No problem. Thanks for tuning in, Me.
No doubt. South Carolina doesn't have an Alshon Jeffery or Ace Sanders this year (though, Bruce Ellington can be darn close at times). It does have four to six targets every game that can make plays.
All right, folks. That's a good stopping point for today. Thanks to all who tuned in. Until next time, take care.
