Around 4 PM Twitter started going crazy with reports that Connor Shaw might not start against Clemson. There has now been some clarification as to just how much the Gamecocks' starting QB is currently limited by his bum ankle, and it comes from the mouth of the Head Ball Coach himself:
Per Spurrier, there is a good chance that Dylan Thompson will start tonight.— David Cloninger (@DCAtGCKCentral) November 24, 2012
They'll see how Shaw looks in warm-ups, and proceed. If he plays, he'll be under a close watch.— David Cloninger (@DCAtGCKCentral) November 24, 2012
Whether Thompson plays the whole game or not, it certainly appears as though the redshirt sophomore signal caller will have a big role in the outcome of this game.
Do you think South Carolina can beat Clemson with its evangelical backup signal caller at the helm?
