South Carolina Spring Game 2021 Preview

The Gamecocks went 2-8 in last year, playing strictly against SEC foes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On Nov. 28, in their last contest at Williams–Brice Stadium, they suffered a 45-16 defeat at the hands of the No. 9 Georgia Bulldogs.

“Being able to get out in front of the home crowd for the first time since November, that feeling when you are in that stadium is unlike anything else,” sophomore quarterback Luke Doty said, according to 247Sports. “Everybody is really eager to get out there and really just put on display what we’ve been working at since January. We’re all ready to go out there and continue to compete and improve as a team, offense, defense and special teams. We want to give the home crowd a good show.”

Doty has the upper hand for the starting spot under center in 2021. He started the last two games of the 2020 campaign after serving as Collin Hill’s backup. In those contests — the loss to Georgia and a 41-18 road defeat against the Kentucky Wildcats — he completed 29 of 47 passes for 275 yards, a pair of touchdowns and as many interceptions.

Offensive coordinator Marcus Satterfield’s challenged Doty to improve his footwork for his sophomore season.

“Something I definitely need to get better at is my feet, making sure I have a good base to throw off of,” Doty said, per 247Sports. “That will improve my accuracy in the short game and even throwing the deep ball. That’s something Coach Satterfield has definitely put an emphasis on me. Every day he challenges me, whether we’re doing drills in practice or whether it be a team period. He is always in my ear. I know he wants the best for me and I definitely want to continue to get better at. It’s been a focus all spring, making sure my feet are set and I have a good base.”

First-year head coach Shane Beamer said the Gamecocks defense got the best of the offense a week ago in the the final scrimmage before the spring game. The D forced a trio of turnovers across the first 24 plays while limiting big gains.

“Not nearly enough explosive plays in my opinion,” Beamer said, according to The State. “Give credit to the defense for that. It isn’t just quarterback and receivers. We got to protect. We got some pretty dang good pass rushers on the defensive line that is making our offensive line better. But we got to protect and execute.”
