South Carolina Football 2011:  Analyzing the Gamecocks Linebackers

Wow, July has been a busy month.  I apologize for my delay in analyzing the rest of the team.  I will get the rest up soon, just in time for a final hurrah and overall analysis.  Then, back to my Five Keys to a Gamecock Victory series!

While the South Carolina team is full of legitimate star players, the linebacker group is a group of workmanlike players who know how to play.  There is no superstar linebacker... just a handful of veteran players who are heady and know how to play football.

Bolstered by the return of two very good linebackers in Shaq Wilson and Rodney Paulk, this group could be the anchor that the Gamecock defense needs. 

Of course, South Carolina's scheme doesn't include the traditional 3 or 4 linebacker names... there are middle linebackers, weakside linebackers and a position called the Spur, which is a linebacker/safety hybrid. 

For more information on South Carolina's roster, check out the other pieces of my ongoing series.
