GAMECOCK QUARTERBACK DEALING WITH HIP INFECTION
According to reporter Phil Kornblut – writing for The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper – that’s the least of his problems, though.
Kornblut is reporting that Mitch was readmitted to the hospital this week after experiencing an infection in his hip – which was re-aggravated during the Kentucky game. Not only that, he is scheduled to receive a blood transfusion this weekend after getting a bad report on his bloodwork.
Doesn’t sound good, does it?
Head coach Steve Spurrier‘s offense will turn to former walk-on quarterback Perry Orth for its SEC East showdown against the University of Georgia this weekend. Orth completed 13 of 20 passes for 179 yards with one touchdown and one (costly) interception against the Wildcats – his first extended action as a Gamecock.
Obviously we hope the doctors figure out what’s wrong with Mitch and that he makes a speedy recovery.
