South Carolina stars opt-out on interim head coach Mike Bobo

The South Carolina Gamecocks are nothing more than a bunch of chickens. Since Will Muschamp’s termination as South Carolina’s head coach, two of their star football players are bailing out on the rest of the 2020 SEC football season.

The first domino to fall was Jaycee Horn, the son of former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Horn (a.k.a. the guy that pulled out a flip phone to celebrate a touchdown). The younger Horn has been a breakout star and one of the few bright spots on South Carolina’s defense, picking off two passes and recording eight passes defended, tied for the second most in the SEC.

South Carolina’s other starting’ cornerback, Israel Mukuamu, followed Horn’s lead less than 48 hours later. Mukuamu also had a couple of interceptions this year. Each player is considered a top ten cornerback prospect by Todd McShay in the 2021 NFL Draft class.

In addition to losing stars, the Gamecocks are simply losing depth. Interim coach Mike Bobo also announced Tuesday that defensive back R.J. Roderick and defensive lineman Makius Scott will opt out of the remainder of the season. Bobo had to move running back ZaQuandre White to safety and offensive lineman Jordan Rhodes to the defensive line just to put more bodies on that side of the ball. 

Since the school bailed on their coach, you can’t be too mad at the players for bailing on their program with just three games remaining. The better question is, will there be any players left when Carolina comes to Kroger Field December 5?

    Should be forced to transfer. You are not going to play the rest of the season because you are mad your coach got fired? I say kick them off the team. Don’t wanna play, then you get the boot. Period.

      Players commit to coaches. Like it or not. How many 5 stars were we getting a year before Cal? When someone you have a strong bond with gets treated unfairly in your eyes, loyal people will stand by them .

    Whatever SC has to suffer thru is good enough for them! My family went to Columbia last year to support the Cats, the Vols have nothing on them! The crowd behind our bench yelled obscenities at our players and coaches the entire game! Coach Clink finally had enough and came to the rail. They are the worst of the worst! I hope they remain cellar dwellers!

      I’ll never forget the year we had Wall and Cousins. I was living in Charlotte and my buddy was living in Charleston. We meet up in Columbia for that game where they beat us. The crowd there were absolute monsters. Eventually my buddy and I (and several others in blue in the stands) had to get police escorts to our cars and they also escorted us out to the road. They were garbage human beings. The worst part? A pregnant woman with her husband and what had to be their 7 or 8 yo daughter were being threatened with things I won’t repeat because they were cheering on UK. I’ll never go back to Columbia.

    Quit on your team is not right.

    4-6, just like I have been predicting on here sense the the season started. Which would be a 10-2 record in a normal 12 game season.
