    2011 Team Analysis

    2011 for the Gamecocks will feature some new faces, but also a lot of old faces. South Carolina returns a bunch of starters on both sides of the ball from a team that over achieved in 2010. The biggest question you have with a team like this, is can they over achieve again because even though the Gamecocks won 12 games last year they are in the bottom half of the SEC talent wise. If they want to post 12 wins again in 2011 they are going to have to over achieve for the second year in a row, and the start to their season certainly won't help that as they play on the road their first four game, two of which are against top ten teams. We will know after the first five games if the Gamecocks are on the track to over achieving or not in 2011.

    Offense

    Quarterback
    Last year Stephen Garcia had a breakout season leading the nation in passing yards, but he has gone to the NFL and has handed the reins over to Andrew Clifford, who played in mop up duty last year. This year the Gamecocks are counting on the Sophomore to be the man, and more than likely their SEC East hopes lie in the arm of Clifford. If Clifford can't get the job done early in the season you could possibly see the Gamecocks make a change to Zac Brindise, but that would be worst case scenario, because they know Clifford will have to be the QB in 2012 and they don't want to shake his confidence too much.

    Running Backs
    Gone is Bryan Maddox the leading rusher from a year ago, but the South Carolina coaching staff is still more excited about their running backs than they are at any other position. The main reason for that excitement is Freshman Marcus Lattimore. Lattimore was fighting for a job as a true freshman but he wasn't quite ready so the Gamecocks went to a nice two back system that faired well while Lattimore prepared for this season. Going into spring practice Lattimore was expected to split carries with Giles, who returns from last year, but Lattimore improved in the offseason more than any other player. That improvement has earned Lattimore the starting job this season, and it will be his until either Giles steps up or Marcus slips up. Either way the Gamecocks should be much more dynamic and explosive in the running game this year.

    Wide Receivers
    South Carolina has one of the best, deepest, and most experience receiving corps in the nation. The receiver group is led by none other than Junior Alshon Jeffery. Jeffery has been a force for the past two season and should be just that again this season. The Gamecocks will also rely on Junior Tori Gurly and Senior Jason Barnes. Both receivers had great years last year, and Barnes had a career year. With those three leading the Gamecock receiving unit, Carolina should have yet another great year passing the ball.

    Tight Ends
    Last year the Gamecocks got solid play from it's Tight Ends, but they were and are looking from more production from the group. This season Justice Cunningham will be the starter at TE and the staff hopes he can be a nice security blanket for the young QB Clifford. Also the Gamecocks will use some two TE packages that will feature Mike Triglia, who played some last year and should see his role expand more this season.

    Offensive Line
    The offensive line will be a key for the Gamecocks as it is with any team. If the Gamecocks want to get the ball in the hands of their playmakers the line is going to have to protect and open up lanes. The line features a good mix of youth and experience that should help . Often times it is hard to notice how well a line performs, but with how important the offensive line is for this team their performance will stand out like a sore thumb.

    Defense​


    Defensive Line
    Last year I think it was safe to say that the defensive line was the most in consistent group for the Gamecocks. One week they would be pushing the pocket and closing down running lanes and then the next week they would have virtually no effect on the game. With everybody back on the front four it is vital that the defensive line shows up each and every week for the Gamecocks. The most important guy on the line is Junior Devin Taylor, if he plays consistent and plays like he did last year this defensive line has a chance to be a good group.

    Linebackers
    The Carolina linebackers are a unit that doesn't have a lot of game experience but they have a good amount of skill and are ready to prove themselves. The Gamecocks will feature a new MLB and ROLB (a Senior and a Sophomore). This group will have to grow up fast for the Gamecocks defense to get as good as it wants to be. The linebackers may be the weakest position on the entire South Carolina team, and like the old saying goes you are only as strong as your weakest link, so we will find out how strong that link of linebackers really is in the near future.

    Secondary
    While the linebackers are maybe the weakest part of the team, the secondary is probably the strongest. A very good secondary a year ago returns three out of four starters, and it also returns it's nickel and dime secondary player. Junior CB Stephon Gilmore had an off year last year, and he will need to pick his play up to elevate the secondary to new heights. The safety combination of Senior Akeem Auguste and Junior Devonte Holloman is what makes the secondary as good as it is. Both players are preseason All-Americans and were All-Americans last year. The Carolina defense is going to depend on its secondary this year as they look to win 12 plus games.
