ORLANDO, FLA. (December 28, 2013) – The University of South Carolina football team worked out for about two hours at Celebration High School in Kissimmee on Saturday morning. The Gamecocks are preparing for Wednesday’s Capital One Bowl matchup with the Wisconsin Badgers.
“(Wisconsin) is a great football team,” said offensive line coach Shawn Elliott. “They’ve got a great defense. They play a great scheme. They’re so sound and very intelligent. They don’t make a lot of mental mistakes. We’re going to have to run the football and do it well. And then find out and see what they are giving us. We’ll find out early in the ballgame and see what we can do with it and work from there.”
Coach Elliott knows the importance of winning the bowl game. “You live with it until the first game of next year,” noted Elliott. “You’ve got to live with your last game. That’s the good and the bad thing about bowl games. (A win) gives you positive momentum going into the offseason. It’s very important to be successful. I think everyone wants to be remembered for winning their last game.”
Coach Elliott is still undecided on who will start at center. He is choosing from between a pair of redshirt freshmen in Cody Waldrop and Clayton Stadnik. “I’m going to leave it right up until the game,” said Elliott.
“I want to go out with a win,” said junior wide receiver Bruce Ellington. “I’m going to do the same thing I’ve been doing – go out there and play hard, play together and try to get the ‘W’.” Ellington did not envision playing both sports when he left high school. “I came (to South Carolina) to play basketball. I just ended up playing football and it’s going good. I’m just happy being out here and making plays.” Ellington said he has not made any decisions about his future.
After practice, the team had an opportunity to go to Universal Studios.
The Gamecocks will spend Sunday morning with a Day for Kids Event at DisneyQuest before returning to the practice fields at 1 p.m.
The No. 8/8 Gamecocks (10-2, 6-2 SEC) and No. 19 Badgers (9-3, 6-2 Big Ten) will meet at Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium on Wednesday, January 1. Game time is set for 1 p.m. ET and the game will be televised nationally on ABC with Dave Pasch, Brian Griese and Tom Luginbill handling the broadcast.

Clem5on Coach Dabo Swinney says, out load, his team is more consistent than Ohio State in the last 5 years. WTF? Here is the comment.
“If you just judge us on the last five years I think that we’ve become one of the most consistent teams in the country. More consistent than Ohio State if you will. I mean, there’s a lot of teams out there that would love to have the accomplishments that this team has had in the last few years. As far as consistently being ranked and school things that we’ve done here, records that we’ve set here at Clemson and all that kind of stuff.”
This guy is clearly high (he may have smoked some of Sammy Watkins stash). In the last 5 years OSU is 54-11( 11-2, 13-1, 6-7, 12-0 and 12-1) and Clemson is 46-20 (9-5, 6-7, 10-4, 11-2, 10-2). This assclown needs to take a math class. Hell even South Carolina has been more consistent. USC is 48-17 (7-6, 9-5, 11-2, 11-2, 10,2), and ranked in the top 25 longer, in that same time frame. So I guess he is saying in his round about way that South Carolina is better than his Clem5on is. Thanks for yetanother laugh Dabo!
sorry, it was a “load” but I obviously meant loud there
Still not sure what this has to do with Clowney and co practicing in Fla.
no one cares what you think, or are “not sure” about Pee Wee.
They’re more consistent than West Virginny has been the last five years. Unfortunately for Dabo, that didn’t help his Tigers in their previous bout not too long ago.
Just shut your yap Dabo!
Cocks are in Disney Land and Dabo’s in Fantasy Land….
Consistency is a virtue only when you are not a screwup.
Consistency is not a virtue if it means consistently losing to Sakerlina…
Of course, THE Ohio State University is consistently overrated.
Sakerlina is consistently absent from the SEC championship game.*
* Sakerlina fans: Save your typing about 2010. TBG stands by his original assertion.
Ho’s be wanting Clowney to be their baby daddy.
would that be your ho too?
Black women are nasty. Why do you think so many black men prefer white women.
I knew you were a racist. go have fun at your KKK rally there Jackoff.
Weak, or are you just one of those pissed off black baby mamas who’s baby daddy is now dating a fat white woman?
so you are racist, sexist, and homophobic? How proud your parents must be. I’ll bet you are the talk of the trailer park in which you and the rest of your white trash family lives.
Call them like I see them, and from your comments I picture a flannel dyke, say hello to Jean Toal for next USC women’s basketball game.
How much do you want to bet? I bet you live in an Occupier approved, minimalist, one-bedroom apartment and drive a used Prius. Oops, make that a Subaru Outback.
I see my admirer from a few other articles has taken my name and called it his own. Not that you did, but pay no mind to this drivel.
Come now Pee Wee, no one admires you.
And from everything I have ever seen from you, I picture a dumb ass, fat, greasy, red neck in a wife beater, with his sister (who is just as fat) for a wife, and your mama in her false teeth with a wig on her head in her bath robe with a plunger in her hand, still yelling for you to wash the pick up on cinderblocks in the front of that trailer. I guess the Klan rally is also a family reunion then huh? I guarantee what I picture is a hell of a lot closer to the truth than what you say, and the sad thing is you know it. .
Norma, you’re turning me on.
yep, because you are a redneck piece of trash
I love you.
you are garbage
Ah poor poor Noma, New Years Eve and you’re special monthly friend appears… don’t worry, there’s plenty above the waist you can do.
ah poor squishy, I heard you were “parking your boat” at the landing today and the cops came. I knew you were a closeted redneck gay man. if you don’t get it, we all saw you on the news today (WLTX). I think it even had your mugshot. lmfao
Don’t have an answer for that, because I, and likely everyone else outside your head, don’t have a clue as to what you’re talking about. Did you mix your Midol with your pain killers?
Do you really have a “fucking ass”? I mean before you laughed it off. Your New Years Eve plans may not be ruined after all.
like I said go look it up. the most homophobic people usually are closeted gay guys. You are so busted. And watch you want people to do to your ass. My point is made. Looks like your new years kiss will be on the bung hole off your secret lover. haha
this is you right?
Sorry but no. You do seem awful obsessed with this story, if this a fantasy of yours to witness or participate in? I bet your panties are dripping after reading that story.
Closeted fag!!! hahaha
You telling a joke to your old your old man? Might want to check the boat landing.
And here you claim not to know about that place. Busted.
It’s on the front page of The State and WIS there Kojak.
If you say so princess
Easy on the Outback there Squishy – an all wheel drive station wagon is an ideal platform for many a manly adventure. Now if she’s driving a Baja, that’s a different animal all together….
an all wheel drive station wagon is an ideal platform for many a manly adventure.
Ummmm…Colonel, TBG doesn’t believe there is much disagreement between you and The Squishmiester on this…
In retrospect, you may be right…
Subaru Outback is to lesbians what the Miata is to gay men.
I knew you were a fat bitch, go have fun at your LGBT rally there Rugmuncher.
Squish, TBG thinks you may have Norma Scok confused with Norma Strappon.
She’s just pissed she didn’t get the Jennifer Lawrence autographed buttplug for Christmas. Or knowing Norma, she’s probably one of those white women who celebrates Kwanzaa.
