Will Muschamp always feels the pressure, guys

Saturday’s game vs. Kentucky is arguably the biggest of Will Muschamp’s career at South Carolina. Not only are the Gamecocks 1-3 this season, they’ve lost to the Cats five years straight, and if Kentucky manages to make it six, there’s a growing sense that Muschamp will be shown the door.

In his weekly press conference this morning, Muschamp was asked how much pressure he feels heading into this game.

“We have pressure every single week. Every single week there’s a lot of pressure. And you know what? There’s more pressure internally than there is externally, I can assure you of that.

You can read between the lines of the coach speak there. When asked if Saturday is another “must win game,” Muschamp quipped that they all are — even the Gamecocks’ open date the following week.

“They’re all must win games. Every single game. You know what next week’s going to be — Well, we’re open — but the next week’s going to be? Must win. And we need to kick open’s ass too.”

As for Kentucky, Muschamp had plenty of praise for Mark Stoops, Sawyer Smith, Lynn Bowden, AJ Rose, and Kavosiey Smoke, the latter of whom he recruited himself. Nick Roush will have more on that as the week goes on, but until then, you can watch Muschamp’s remarks on Kentucky around the 6:30 mark below:

      No kidding; I would hate to be his physician. He may have a stroke before he’s 50.

    Better answer than Stoops “We’ve won a lot of football games. I thought we were past all that” mentality.

      Dude wtf is wrong with you?? You claim to be a UK basketball fan yet you want our football team to suck?! And make fun of our program, that’s in a much better place now than it’s been in in years, just because we lost two games to two good teams all while having SEVERAL key injuries?? Just cheer on the football team, and enjoy what Stoops has built, or shut the fuk up and only come around during basketball season like the bandwagon fan you are.

      i don’t want our football team to suck. That you think that tells me quite a bit. That you think anyone who is rational and not a kool aid drinker isn’t a fan. Tell me what comment I’ve made that’s been false?

    SC bought a retread and expected traction. A UK win tomorrow will finish him off.
