South Carolina’s season has taken a tough turn, as the Gamecocks’ home loss to Appalachian State on Saturday marked their third defeat in four weeks. In addition to that loss, they also fell to Tennessee on Oct. 26, both of which seemed like winnable games.

On Sunday, one former South Carolina player provided what he believes to be a reason for the Gamecocks’ continued struggles.

Aged cayenne peppers bring the heat, while molasses and honey inject the sweet into our Fiery Sweet Wing Sauce. For a dash of daring deliciousness, give it a shot.

Former South Carolina offensive lineman Mason Zandi stated in a series of tweets that he thinks injuries have constantly been an issue during the Will Muschamp era, and he thinks that can be attributed to the coaching staff overworking the players. That includes a quick turnaround for morning practices the days after playing late night games, per Zandi.

Here are some of the comments Zandi made on Twitter:

After going 3-4 in its first seven SEC games, South Carolina has one more opportunity to pick up a conference victory this season. The Gamecocks travel to play Texas A&M on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET on SEC Network.

South Carolina then has a bye before wrapping up its regular season with a home matchup against Clemson on Nov. 30.
