South Carolina vs. Missouri: Will Muschamp postgame press conference tweetcap

Muschamp meets the media after the Gamecocks’ big win against the Tigers.

As you may well imagine, Will Muschamp was in a good mood after a 31-13 victory over the Missouri Tigers. Here’s some of what he said to the media in the “other” Columbia following the game (more later):

—Muschamp had high reviews for Jamyest Williams, who had his first career interception to set up Deebo Samuel’s score not long after. The freshman showed tonight why he was one of the more highly-touted recruits in the 2017 cycle.

The jet sweep by Hayden Hurst was a new wrinkle in the playbook put in this past week, per Muschamp. (To be honest, I hated the play call - so many things could have gone wrong with it - but it worked, so...)

Bryan Edwards pulled in five catches for 35 yards. While it’s not a big chunk of yardage, Muschamp mentioned that the catches came at some important times. You’ll probably see more of him against Kentucky.

—Muschamp apparently was asked about the amount of yards the Gamecocks gave up (423), which, yes, is a lot.

In fairness, the Gamecocks did outgain the Tigers 213-196 in the second half. (Sorry, Coach, for the stats). They did outscore them for the game, and that’s the most important part.

—The news seems to be good for Steven Montac, who stayed home due to injury.

Meanwhile, it was a different story in the home locker room.
