– [Coach] They’ve got our efforts, our toughness, our
discipline, and our coach. Let’s go win a ball game. (cheering) We still play, we reach up, alright? That’s what we do, okay? Play for the man next to you. Fam on three, fam on three. One, two, three.
(team chanting) – [Announcer] He’s sacked again! The ball’s picked up. They got it over to the end zone. Big plays, back to back, boom! Touchdown, Carolina. Are you kidding me? The Gamecocks win it. – Welcome to Gamecock
Football with Will Muschamp. It’s our open date edition, as the two and three Gamecocks get ready for a stretch of SCC eastern opponents, including the Georgia
Bulldogs on October the 12th. We’re in the Cindy and Ken Long
Family Operations Facility, man it’s a beautiful one. This is just the lobby. Coach, you talked about open dates before. Our chance to rest, recover, have self evaluation and recruit. Can you get all that in in one week? – We’ve done it all in one week. Well, obviously Monday we
spent a lot of time out on the road recruiting, including myself and our entire staff. And we’ll spend, obviously,
Friday out recruiting and, well, evaluating young
men and student athletes at the University of South Carolina. Got great practice on Tuesday,
Wednesday, and Thursday to work on some things
we needed to work on. And there’s a lot of things that, you go back and review
our first five games. Number one, just that, being a
more consistent football team in all three phases. Offensively, the red zone
and scoring touchdowns. Third downs, staying on the field. Defensively, you need to
limit some explosive plays that we’ve had. But there’s a lot of things to work on. I thought we got a lot of good work done. – And you’re telling me, you specifically worked on those things as a kind of a change the
practice rhythm up a little bit, which put an emphasis on that. – Well no doubt about it. We started the first… On Wednesday, we start
out in the red zone. I mean, we took the
entire team, got loose. And then we said, we got
to put the ball down. We got to improve to get more production in the red zone offensively
and scoring touchdowns. – Coach, what do you
see when you look back at the five games so far, other than what you just talked about as an emphasis to get ready,
about this football team? How do you feel about them? Are they progressing in the right areas? You still like the way they work? – No doubt about it. From game one to game five, we’re a much improved football team. We continue to improve and get better. You know, we’ve got to be consistent and play more complementary football. We did that against Kentucky. And all three phases, we answered
off a turnover defensively with a stop. I mean, there were somethings
we just haven’t done together as a football team
on our first five games, but I saw that in the last ball game. – Five games in, everybody’s got injuries. But in our Prisma Health Injury Report, you’ve had some pretty significant ones. Talk to us a little
bit about Dylan Wonnum, Keir Thomas, some of
those guys have been out a little while, as well. To carry on, Joyner and
then, you know, Rico Dowdle, everybody’s worried about his ankle. – [Will] Right, well Dylan
Wonnum and Hank Manos will probably be out for
another three to four weeks. They’ve got, both, severe ankle injuries. I don’t know how Dylan’s not broken from the Missouri game
on Rico’s touchdown. He got high-lowed, down on the goal line. It was a nasty injury, but you know, he’s progressing well. Rico’s going to be fine. He’s run throughout the entire open week and I expect him to be practicing Tuesday as we get ready for Georgia. To carry on, Joyner’s had a
little bit of a hamstring. Again, practiced a little
bit during the open week and I’m looking forward to see if he go on Tuesday in order for Georgia. – That’s our Prisma Health Injury Report. Much more to come, don’t forget. We’ll give you a little bit more of a tour around the Cindy and Ken
Long Operations Facility. And of course talk a lot
more Gamecock Football. That’s coming up next. – [Announcer] Gamecock

you traced your roots? Not your family’s roots, the

you all been going to the games? – Since high school, 30, 35 years yeah. – [Interviewer] What makes you come back? – Let’s go, we gon win! (cheering) – I remember the Missouri game last year. It started raining and nobody really left. It just got louder. (inspirational music) – All the people standing up, they say, “Game! Cocks!” (crowd cheering) and it’s electrifying. (inspirational music) – It’s an adrenaline rush. (inspirational music) (cheering) – Go cocks! (inspirational music) – Yeah, it’s what we do. It’s what our family does. Gamecock Football. – Go cocks! – Go Gamecocks. – Go Gamecocks. – Go Gamecocks. – Welcome back. Coach, one of the things
you can always count on, consistently, is our fan base. No matter what. In the ups and downs of
the season they were there. Kentucky game, a great example of that. – No doubt about it. I say it all the time. The most loyal, passionate
fan base in the country. We appreciate them and the difference they
make in our football team. And the Kentucky game was a great example. That we’d come off a
tough loss on the road, we come back home and our
people are ready to roll. Starts in Gamecock Walk and continues throughout the entire game. We really appreciate them. – Boy, it helps in getting
them off the field. A lot of times you’re
getting us the football back. We appreciate you, we always notice that. Coach, on our Toyota Keys to the Game, Toyota, let’s go places. Going forward, now, you’ve got
a stretch here of SCC teams in the East. You go to Georgia. You got a game on the road at Tennessee. And we go out West a little
bit later on in the season and take on TAMU, but your thoughts now on going forward, what would be good for your
football team to improve upon? – Well, I think we’ve
run the ball pretty well. Obviously, Missouri’s the
outlier in all of that. But we’ve run the ball pretty well and we’ve stopped the run pretty well since our first ball game. And we’ve hung in there
so those are things we’ve got to continue to build on. Throw it better offensively. Be more productive as far
as throwing touchdowns in the red zone. Defensively, do a better
job in the second half of getting off the field on third down. That’s been a little
bit of an issue for us, as games have continued to wear on. But limit the explosives. The explosive plays have really taken the wind out of our sails
a little bit defensively and as a football team. – Yeah, it’s amazing. You look back on it, you
think we’ve got a lot of stops and you don’t feel that way, but plays over 10, 12, 15 yards are a big part of some of the successes other teams have had. – Well it creates momentum in the game and it changes the
vertical field position. Whether they score or not doesn’t matter. They’re flipping the field on us. And we’ve got to stay away from that. And the most important stat
of all is turn over margin. We’re on the minus end of it. We can’t afford that. We’re not good enough to
overcome those things. – Coach, you can be good
but you can’t be great, maybe win a lot of games, unless you’re quarterback’s playing well. What can we do to help
Ryan Hilinski improve and continue to grow? – Continue to run the football well. Protect him better in some situations, and I thought against
Kentucky he was accurate with the football when we asked him to be. I thought we had a really
good game plan going in and moving the pocket a little bit and creating some room for him as far as escaping some of those things. So, just be more consistent. Finishing routes down the field. Make some big plays
for him down the field. Some of the 50-50 balls, especially with some of the
teams we’re going to play, there’s going to be a lot
of one on one coverage. Especially the way we’re
running the football. So, we can expect that. And we’ve got to win some
50-50 balls down the field. – That’s our Toyota Keys to the Game. For the remainder of the season so far, this is our first open date show. When we come back, we’ll
have some superlatives for the first part of the season. – [Announcer] When the
Gamecocks go bowling this year, you will too. South Carolina Farm Bureau Insurance is sending one lucky winner to whichever bowl game our Gamecocks attend. One winner and guest will get airfare, hotel accommodations,

the Alumni Association is a home run. And as the new spokesperson
for the Alumni Association, I want to represent all Gamecocks. Regardless of their Carolina experience. Because that is what the
Alumni Association does. They support all of us, not just record-breaking
quarterbacks, like me. So join today, or visit mycarolina.org to learn more. – [Announcer] Now the Gamecocks
can exercise some demons, maybe. Set the tone for what could be
an exciting football season. – Go Carolina! – Love you so much. – [Announcer] Get loud
no matter what the score. Stay loud because… A mistake could allow your
team to get back in the game. (epic music) (whistle blowing) – Okay here we go! (epic music) No doubt about our effort,
our toughness, our discipline. Let’s go play. (epic music) – [Announcer] Watch out,
cause here come the Gamecocks. (epic music) Here’s another run this time
– [Announcer] Wow. – [Announcer] Kevin Harris
breaks it out, right side. Carolina pressing the line of scrimmage. Bryant wants to run it, got some trouble. Now he’s got a Gamecock around him, and they rip him down. Aaron Sterling. And here they come. Five men come at Bryant. Underneath throw, ti’s
picked off at the 20. And down at the 10 yard line,
heading towards the end zone. Knocked out of bounds just
before he got to the pylon. Are you kidding me? DJ Wonnum read the
screen play beautifully. Fake inside, Hilinski wants
to go down the field again. He’s got them in there. Caught at the 20. At the 15, 10, 9. Touchdown! Got a snap. Looking down the middle of the field into the arms of a Gamecock defender. The second time on a drive. Clackey hands off Mon Denson outside. Lets see if Mon can run away at the 30. 20, 15, 10, 5, touchdown. Mon Denson, from 56 yards out. Snap is back. Up and good. (epic music) (marching band playing) – Welcome back, we’re
on the NFL wall here. All the helmets represent
players in the league that have South Carolina ties, coach. And it’s fun, not only with your players, but recruits can come here too and see those guys that
are playing in the NFL and their heritage they’ve
got here at South Carolina. – Well, first of all, to
me its really important to pay homage to our guys that played here at the University of South Carolina that are now in the NFL. And you look at it, you come
and touch one of the helmets and it pops up on the screen. You see there Ryan Brewer in 2003 for the Baltimore Ravens, Emmanuel Cook, and then a great one, a first rounder, Hayden Hirsch right there, who presently plays for the Ravens. So any recruit that walks in the door or any present player can
put his hand on a helmet and it pops up immediately
and shows those guys. And really an honor for
those guys to be in here. – Well, whether it’s on
your sidelines or this, you’ve always made it an
important part of your program to have former players being recognized so that they’ll come back
and feel comfortable. – Well we’ve got a former
players locker room right here in the facility for them. So if they want to come out and
work out in the weight room, there’s an open invitation
for all of them. – Coach, another thing
that you’re doing right now to make sure that those
recruits and player who are coming back, are
comfortable and are invited as your renovating over
at Williams-Brice Stadium. We’ve actually put a
package together here, let’s take a look at the renovations over at the new recruiting portion of Williams-Brice Stadium. Up next we’ll hear from
Contract Construction, Garvin Design Group, and HNTB Design Firm. – So the overall scope of
this project’s going to be very challenging. After the last snap of the Clemson game, we will come in that Sunday, and we’ll begin the complete demolition of the club level on the East side. We’ll be constructing a new club from end zone to end zone. Behind, what you see is
the current red seats. We’ll move to the South and we will cut back on what currently is the recruiting seating section to allow for a 2001 club
in the Southwest corner. That’s going to similar to the experience you see at Dallas
Cowboy’s football stadium, where the players will
actually run through the club. And where we’re standing
now will be a two-story club for the South patrons. And also the recruiting
will be on the second floor. So about $20 million worth of work. It will be done in a
period of eight months. So in the first game of the 2020 season, it’ll look as if we haven’t
touched the facility other than the upgrades. (inspiring music) – [Coach Will] At the
University of South Carolina we’re committed to the fight. And it’s not just a battle
on the football field, we’re competing against breast cancer, right here in our community. – [Carol] Our Gamecock
family is teaming up with Prisma Health Midlands Foundation to beat breast cancer. – [Coach Will] When you register to walk or run on October 12th… – [Carol] All proceeds raised
at the 29th Walk for Life and Famously Hot Pink Half
Marathon, five and 10k will benefit the Prisma
Health Breast Center. – [Coach Will] Register today

It’s a matter of taste. (epic music) – [Announcer] And when the
unexpected happens to you, there’s Colonial Life. Benefits that help cover what your regular insurance doesn’t. (cheering) – [Announcer] Good hard
work has earned Kate Vaunum the title of Colonial Life
Academic Athlete of the Week. A member of the equestrian team, Vaunum is a junior public
health major with a 4.0 GPA. This week’s Academic Athlete is brought to you by Colonial Life. Colonial Life, the
benefits of good hard work. (marching band playing) – [Announcer] Wildcats,
third down and eight from their own 41 yard line. Move the wide receiver now. Three of them over to the right side. Smith gets backed up in
the pocket, he’s sacked. The ball’s on the ground. The Gamecocks have it. Aaron Sterling has got
the fumble recovery. DJ Wannum with the sac strip. And Carolina’s got the first down, inside the Kentucky 30 yard line. Oh my! – Welcome back. That’s our Sansbury Eye
Center Did You See That Play? Coach, before I ask
for you comments on it, this is an incredible entrance for your football players to come in. And we’re in front of the NFL wall, which represents all the teams in the National Footbal League. It’s a big part of the goals
of your football players, whether they’re going to
play in the league or not, to see that other Gamecocks have been a part of that process. – Well they walk in this
door every single day and one of the first things that they see. Number one is a sign
that says do your job. And the other one is the NFL wall. When you put your hand
on any of these helmets, it shows all the Gamecocks that played at each NFL organization. – Our Sansbury Eye Center
Did You See That Play? DJ Wonnum sac, coach. You’ve got some guys putting pressure. He was one of them in the Kentucky game. – Well, this starts the third quarter. Huge momentum swing in the game. We get a three and out. Aaron Sterling does a fantastic job of pushing the pocket inside. DJ’s get the sac strip and the next play Rico goes for 30 yards. We go up to 17 nothing. – Our Terminix Pest Players of
the first part of the season. Javon Kindlaw on defense, coach. 14 tackles, four sacs. Leads the SCC. And Brian Edwards has been everything you thought he would be as a senior. – [Coach Will] Both guys, you know, made a decision to come
back to South Carolina for their senior years
and I told both guys, in both situations, work extremely hard to create the best version of you this fall. They both attacked the
off season, Spring ball, the Summer program, and training camp the way you’re supposed to. They both practiced the right way and that’s why they’re
playing at such a high level. – Congratulations to those players. We hope their second half of the season is just as successful. Now, it’s time to hear from My Carolina. – Hi, I’m Gamecock legend Connor Shaw. Here to tell you that joining

(clapping) That’a boy, that’a boy, that’a boy. Good rep, good rep. Now I want to see how
many good reps can you put together today? Alright? How many many good ones? That’s one. How many good ones you can put together. (clapping)
Good. You might not get that chance just to win. Sometimes you’re going to
have to go in there and pop. Use your hands and get in there. Lightning inside him. And this is my guy, right? I got to have my hip in him. You’re doing this. Rebound for me (mumbling). No where to run, no where to hide. Money down. Stay there, stay there. Ball up, ball up, ball up. Ball up. Hey let me see that Gatorade. I’m buying over here man. I’m buying, you got one.

We keep moving right? Trying to get better. – Coach you already
talked about an open date. You do a lot of work on yourself, but it’s hard to ignore the fact that Georgia Bulldogs are next. One of the top five ranked
teams in the country. What do you know about coach
Smart’s team this year? – Well, very similar
to the last two years. Very physical, up front. Huge on the offensive line. Talented, the running back position. A veteran leader of their football team and Jake Fromm has done a
fantastic job of leading their football team the last three years. A lot of depth, especially
in the front seven defensively, athletic on the back end. And they got a really good staff. Coach Smart’s done a really
nice job there at Georgia and we’re looking forward to
going and playing in Athens. – You’ve won each of your
games after an open date here at South Carolina so far, but it’s a tall task over
there in Georgia and do that but when you’re playing
in Sanford Stadium, a place you know very well, what are some things early
on that’s got to happen well? – Well we need to be
able to run the football. And I think– you look in this ball game,
I always look at match ups, you know, it’s something
we’ve done pretty well. They’re number one rushing
defense in the SCC. We’ve stopped the run pretty
well after our first ball game and they’ve run the ball well. So we need those match ups to
fall in our favor on game day. And obviously get out to a good start and, you know, protect Ryan. You know, give him some
opportunities down the field. Do a better job of
keeping people off of him, opposed to what we did
when we were in Missouri. – Oh we’ve had some great match ups, over there at Sanford
Stadium over the years. We hope it’ll be another one. The Gamecocks to come out on top. Thanks for being with us on Gamecock Football with Will Muschamp. It’s our open date edition, we’ll see you after the Georgia game. (epic music)
