Maybe Next Year

I called last night’s game against Tennessee a must win, and despite a valiant comeback, South Carolina was not able to win it.  With that loss USC is now 1-4 in conference with two home losses and the meat of the schedule coming up.  They aren’t technically out of the running for the NCAA tournament, […]
