Gamecock fans rejoice in the most signature win of Will Muschamp's career
The hot seat talk is gone for a while after coach Will Muschamp delivered the most shocking and signature win of his career, especially at South Carolina.
Previously, the Gamecocks’ biggest win under Muschamp was a 2016 triumph against Tennessee.
With a backup quarterback, a running game that did just enough, and a defense, especially against the pass, that was smothering against Georgia, South Carolina prevailed 20-17 in Athens.
Muschamp, a Georgia alum, especially enjoyed the win even though he said it was more for the players. He plucked some of Sanford Stadium’s signature hedges as a parting gift.
Plenty of Gamecock fans enjoyed the victory. Here’s a sample of their reaction:
Coach Muschamp finally has a signature win as the Gamecock head coach. Hopefully he has enough healthy players for a chance at another one next week. #SpursUp

Beautiful win. We had every opportunity to believe we would lose and decided to win. Credit our players and coaches & the culture of belief of competitive greatness that has been built.
A year ago their running game bullied us. This year our will bullied theirs. #SpursUp

As much as I dislike muschamp and some of his decisions today. He won his must win game today in Kentucky and won a signature game against Georgia. This should help in recruiting. It really is a good day to be a gamecock.
