With Mike Davis still banged up – his head coach calls him “sort of doubtful” for the East Carolina game – it presents an interesting dilemma for the OBC. As Tom Fornelli puts it,
As for whether or not he’ll miss the East Carolina game that’s sort of still up in the air. While it seems logical that Spurrier would want to rest Davis for the game to make sure he’s healthy for what’s now become a must-win game against Georgia on Sept. 13, East Carolina isn’t exactly a pushover. The Pirates averaged over 40 points per game last season playing an offensive style similar to Texas A&M’s, and we all saw the kind of trouble the Gamecocks defense had against the Aggies on Thursday night.
I suspect he’d prefer to hold Davis out. Will the ‘Cock defense give him that luxury?
