South Carolina Gamecocks: Takeaways From the 24-10 Loss to Kentucky

The South Carolina Gamecocks fell to the Kentucky Wildcats, 24-13. Carolina is now 2-2, 1-2 in the SEC. The loss essentially eliminates the Gamecocks from winning the SEC East.

For Kentucky, Benny Snell continued his dominance in the early part of 2018. Snell finished with 99 yards and one TD.

The South Carolina Gamecocks return home next weekend. USC will host the Missouri Tigers. The game will be at 11 am on SEC Network.

TAKEAWAYS FROM THE LOSS TO KENTUCKY

BENTLEY IS AVERAGE AT BEST

I am not going to sugarcoat it anymore. Jake Bentley is an average quarterback at best. For all of the promise he has shown, Bentley cannot take the next step. Whenever a big game rolls around, Bentley fades away.

In the first half, Jake Bentley threw for nine yards. NINE! It was quite embarrassing. Bentley finished with 148 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions.

He underthrew Bryan Edwards so bad on a deep route, the normally sure-handed wide receiver dropped it. He has no rapport with Deebo Samuel this season.

The only shining moment in the first half for Bentley were the plays he made with his legs.

For any South Carolina Gamecocks fans clamoring for a change, it is not going to happen. Who are you going to replace him with? Michael Scarnecchia is not going to move the needle. Redshirt freshman Jay Urich, not likely. True Freshman Dakereon Joyner, good luck with that. The bottom line is: a change is not coming in 2018.

That is all I have to say about the game this week. I can’t blow any smoke up anyone’s behind. This was a terrible performance.
