Buckshots: 1997 Gamecock Flashback

Last year we did an audio review of every Gamecock football season since 1987. Due to popular demand, we will be re-running the series this summer leading up to kickoff against Texas A&M on August 28.

The Brad Scott era at USC continues its slow fade in 1997, dropping to a 5-6 record. At least with the 6-5 in 1996 we had victories over Georgia and Clemson, but not so in ’97. The season could’ve turned out better, but a devastating knee injury to quarterback Anthony Wright against Tennessee forced 165-lb. Vic Penn into action.

Penn fled the program to Central Florida after the Clemson game, largely because he couldn’t throw the out (1:36:37 here). In that Clemson game, despite a blazing start by Troy Hambrick (TD’s at 22:10 and 31:50 here), we lost primarily due to Brad Scott making one of the worst calls in coaching history (1:05:50 here).

(Note: also fun to see Wally Burnham of USC matching defensive wits with Reggie Herring of Clemson. Two of the most hated defensive coordinators in the state’s history.)

Still, 5-6 was a picnic compared to what was coming.

Buckshots: 1996 Gamecock Flashback

Last year we did an audio review of every Gamecock football season since 1987. Due to popular demand, we will be re-running the series this summer leading up to kickoff against Texas A&M on August 28.

Brad Scott hoped to answer some questions about the Gamecock program in 1996, but another up and down campaign had fans scratching their heads. Despite a smoking hot start by QB Anthony Wright and RB Duce Staley, and victories over our top rivals Georgia and Clemson, we finished with only six wins and no bowl bid.

Two of the more memorable moments of the season were this run by Duce Staley against Georgia, and this run by Troy Hambrick against Clemson (do NOT miss the fan at the :29 mark) that provided the winning points.
