South Carolina head football coach Will Muschamp knew the 2020 schedule would be unforgiving if his team did not play a clean game. At least three times, that has been the case.
The Gamecocks are currently 2-3 and after an open date and will turn their attention to seventh-ranked Texas A&M.
For Muschamp, he is not surprised that five games into a schedule that has nothing but SEC foes, his team has experienced some painful lessons.
"Well, I expected it to be tough every week and it's been tough every week and unfortunately, we're sitting here at 2-3," Muschamp said.
"Didn't think we'd be in this spot but this where we are. So, we have to continue to take them one at a time and every week is a season and focus on that and focus on Texas A&M. This is where we are."
