South Carolina Top Areas for Improvement

NCAA FOOTBALL: NOV 01 Tennessee at South Carolina

In 10 seasons at South Carolina, Steve Spurrier has won five bowl games while compiling an impressive 84-45 record. Coming off a fourth consecutive bowl win, however, the Gamecocks have plenty of areas for improvement in 2015.

With superstar defensive end Jadeveon Clowney moving to the NFL, the Gamecocks defense took a noticeable step back last fall. South Carolina ranked 12th in points allowed in 2013 but tumbled to 92nd in the first year of the post-Clowney era.

Replacing Connor Shaw at quarterback with Dylan Thompson also proved to be a more difficult transition than some expected. Shaw threw just a single interception in 2013; Thompson threw 11 in his only season as a starter.

Heading into spring camp, the Gamecocks must improve in several areas if they hope to re-establish their dominance over the rest of the SEC East. But with Tennessee improving and Georgia looking stacked on defense, can Spurrier turn things around this fall?
