Monday Practice Report - Pre Bama 2005
On making changes along the offensive line: "We have competition for positions all the time. If some of these other linemen look like they can play better than the linemen we have out there, we'll certainly give them a chance. Once they prove they can play, we'll get them in there. The whole line has been so-so - not really a standout player thus far in the first two games."
"We had a good practice. We're just trying to learn from all the mistakes and all the little things that happened (at Georgia). It's history. Sometimes games are games of inches. It's history now and we can't do anything about it."
NEWS & NOTES:
Tight end Andy Boyd suffered a hyperextension of his right knee against Georgia. He will rehab the knee and be reassessed in seven to 10 days. He is out for the Alabama game. Rover Ko Simpson suffered a hip pointer in Saturday's game at Georgia but was able to practice on Monday. Offensive tackle Jabari Levey suffered a right ankle sprain against Georgia and was limited in practice on Monday. He is listed as day-to-day, but could practice on Tuesday.
South Carolina freshman Carlos Thomas was named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week for his play at Georgia on Saturday. Thomas, a 5-11, 175-pounder from College Park, Ga., was used on both sides of the ball in the Georgia game. He started at wide receiver as the Gamecocks opened in a three-wide set, and was credited with one catch for five yards and one run for four yards. He saw limited action in the secondary on defense, but made a key interception of a D.J. Shockley pass in the end zone late in the first half, preserving USC's 9-7 lead.
The USC-Troy football game, set for Saturday, September 24, will kick at 7 p.m. The game will be a Pay-Per-View broadcast and is available on all cable outlets in the state of South Carolina. Please contact your local cable company for more information or to purchase the broadcast.
