Shane Beamer recaps thrilling comeback for South Carolina behind Zeb Noland
Shane Beamer was beside himself in the post-game interview with the SEC Network on Saturday after a thrilling comeback by Zeb Noland and the Gamecocks to beat Vanderbilt, 21-20.
“Coach (Marcus) Satterfield, we tell him there’s going to be a movie made about him and that was all part of the story there the way he won that thing,” Beamer said. “He stays into it, he helps Luke throughout the game, and what a player, what a player.”
Noland helped the Gamecocks overcome 4 turnovers as he replaced starter Luke Doty with under 2 minutes remaining and led an eight-play, 75-yard scoring drive to give the Gamecocks a tying touchdown that setup the go-ahead extra point.
“We talk about dominating the fourth quarter and we made it as ugly as it possibly could,” Beamer said. “If you do like a textbook story on how to lose football games, we did it all today, but man, they found a way to win, they never flinch, I love this group, they’re unbelievable.”
Beamer said he thought when the tying touchdown was scored, “What hair I have is turning gray fast. Whatever I have left is falling out. That’s just how we win football games right now.”
