Is the Cinderella story for the Wildcats over? Well, the entire story might not yet be over, but the undefeated chapter certainly is. In a valiantly fought effort at Williams-Brice Stadium, the Wildcats did their best to answer South Carolina’s methodical attack, but it was ultimately the defense (and two huge turnovers for TDs) that let the Cats down on Thursday night.
Andre Woodson still looked like a potential Heisman candidate, threading tough throws in small windows, and despite the interception in the red zone, shouldn’t be docked too much in the contention as a result of the loss to the Gamecocks.
Kentucky is still a team to be reckoned with, and I think it’s pretty safe to say that South Carolina is for real as well. Whenever the commentators remind us that the same Steve Spurrier that is coaching the Gamecocks right now, took Duke to an ACC title (yes, in football), it puts the rest of the league on notice when he says that he feels like the Cocks can compete for the SEC title.
Good effort by both schools, and congratulations to South Carolina on a hard fought victory against a good Kentucky team. This weekend should clear up the Eastern Division picture in the SEC a little bit more (all on CBS no less).
