Shamier Jeffery, Terry Googer, and Matrick Belton

Shamier Jeffery is a well known name among Gamecock fans, but not for what he has done at the University of South Carolina. He is well known because of what his brother, Alshon, did at South Carolina, and for what he is doing as a star in the NFL. Perhaps, it was a little unfair for Gamecock fans to expect the same types of performances from Shamier as they did Alshon, but unfortunately for Shamier, that is what has happened.
