Following a disappointing 27-14 loss to Mississippi State on Saturday, South Carolina coach Will Muschamp was searching for answers.

According to The State, the first-year head coach of the Gamecocks felt he crossed the line when he said the coaching staff would have to “find out who wanted to play” after the loss:

“I told the team this morning, that I apologize to the majority of our guys because they do prepare the right way, they do approach things the right way, do try, do give great effort, do have good buy in, do try to play with toughness and do try to play with great discipline, but we have some guys who don’t,” Muschamp said. “It is what it is in situations and we’re trying to do the best we can do at some positions. Those guys have to improve. That to me was the most disappointing.”

Muschamp and the Gamecocks are 1-1 on the season, but most importantly, they’re 1-0 in SEC East play.

South Carolina has a tough matchup against 2-0 East Carolina on Saturday afternoon. The game starts at 4 p.m. Eastern time and can be seen on the SEC Network.
