Shane Beamer and the Gamecocks had a rough game on Saturday, and after South Carolina lost to Georgia, 48-7. The Gamecocks had 3 interceptions, and were outgained by Georgia 547-306.

The Gamecocks dropped to 1-2, and 0-2 SEC and host Charlotte next week. Beamer said the Gamecocks had a bunch of young defensive backs out there and turned guys free, but they didn’t look like a well-coached team, and everyone has got to play better and coach better.

Beamer at his post-game press conference apologized to the fans for a poor performance, and added that he blamed himself for a “horsecrap” job of getting the Gamecocks ready. He also noted that South Carolina played the No. 1 defense in the country.

However, Beamer said they played practically the entire freshman class on defense late in the game and saw some good things from them.
