Any conversation about South Carolina usually starts with defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, whose bone-crunching hit on Michigan running back Vincent Smith in the Outback Bowl has been played more times this offseason than the Zapruder film.
Clowney's hit could be deemed illegal and grounds for ejection under new targeting rules that will go into effect this fall. Yes, this could get interesting.
The Gamecocks have put together back-to-back 11-2 seasons. A Week 2 game at Georgia, a Nov. 16 game against Florida and a Nov. 30 game against Clemson could make or break South Carolina's season.
