The Gamecocks suffered through some major injuries this year.
Running backs Marcus Lattimore, Shon Carson and Matt Coffee all had season-ending knee injuries this year. USC also lost starting left tackle Kyle Nunn to a back injury early in the season. Add injuries to running backs Kenny Miles and Eric Baker, and this Gamecock team suffered through a lot.
Somehow, though, this team found a will to win and finished the regular season at 10-2.
Think of where South Carolina could have been if the team was healthy all year long?
Injuries are a part of football, and they will happen. The hope for South Carolina in 2012 is that these injuries will be minor and that they can stay healthy for the 2012 season.
USC proved a lot by closing out strong with a player like Marcus Lattimore, but the Gamecocks could certainly use a player like him on the field than off of it.
Let's hope 2012 will be a injury-free year for the Gamecocks.
