addressed the media following the workout:
"It was a decent scrimmage. The best thing is nobody got hurt. That's always a plus part of it. The defense clobbered the offense early. I think we had about six possessions before the offense got a first down. All the quarterbacks did some good things here and there. We've got to work on signaling from me or the sideline to the quarterback. We're way behind on that. We need a good two weeks of communication teaching before we're ready to play.
"Cade's a good passer. He throws a nice, catchable ball. He's accurate. The guys don't drop many of his. He doesn't know where everybody's going yet. Once he does that, and has the ability to audible every now and then, the kid's got a chance.
"We had a new kicker show up yesterday, Jordan Dodds, a walk-on, and he made everything today. Coach Cooper was sending him out there with the first kickers. He put this kicker in there and dadgum, he made them all. He's from Edgewater High School in Orlando. After he started making them, the other guys started making them."
The Gamecocks will enjoy an off day on Saturday before returning to the practice fields on Sunday at 5 p.m. All Gamecock practices are closed.
