Tommy Beecher Has an Interception Problem
We do extend our sympathies to him after he was knocked out of the game with some kind of head injury that'll feel that much worse tomorrow morning. North Carolina State quarterback Russell Wilson was also KO'd after taking consecutive shots to the head.
Beecher's now in an intense battle for his job after backup Chris Smelley completed his first five passes for 92 yards and two touchdowns as part of a late offensive barrage that helped South Carolina turn an ugly shutout into something more respectable.
Final scoreboard reads South Carolina 34, North Carolina State 0. Also: SEC 1, ACC 0. It's starting already, as South Carolina fans added several "SEC" chants as the first shots in the never-ending conference wars in college football.
