DC Clayton White, STC Pete Lembo, and OC Dowell Loggains talk Tennessee

South Carolina escaped with a win over Mississippi State last weekend despite giving up nearly 500 passing yards to Bulldogs quarterback Will Rogers. Rogers repeatedly hit the Gamecock secondary over the top with big plays. He had six completions of 29 yards or more including a 65-yard touchdown strike and another bomb of 60 yards.

Rogers has a perfect arm, but it pales compared to that of Tennessee quarterback Joe Milton, who may have the strongest arm in all of college football. His throwing feats in terms of pure distance have been well documented. And his accuracy isn’t half bad at 62.5%. He’s thrown for 925 yards with eight touchdowns and one interception thus far this season.

Gamecock defensive coordinator Clayton White Wednesday acknowledged to the media his deep guys have to be ready for some deep balls from Milton, and he’s doing what he can this week to prepare them.

Gamecock quarterback Spencer Rattler is off to an amazing start this season throwing the football. Through four games, Rattler is sixth nationally in passing yards per game, eighth in passing yards, and 22nd in passing efficiency. He has completed 74.2% of his passes for 142 yards and seven touchdowns with two interceptions.

Wednesday Gamecock offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains met with the media and talked about Rattler and his progress in the new offense. Plus, he had high praise for receiver Xavier Legette who has exploded on the scene this season
