. South Carolina Gamecocks. SECONDARY . D. The Carolina secondary just isn’t very good right now. Every player who plays has talent and has even had good games this season. However, having more than one or two guys perform well in a single game has seemed like an impossibility in 2023. Against the Aggies, Judge Collier was pretty good in the 1st half playing in place of O’Donnell Fortune (who was kept out for a half for unknown reasons). Fortune was not good when he took over after halftime and did not give very good effort. Nick Emmanwori was very good after DQ Smith (who struggled) got ejected for targeting, but Emmanwori wasn’t at his best before that. Jalon Kilgore had a good day in coverage for most of the game, but one massive bust cost the team a back-breaking touchdown right before halftime. Marcellas Dial had a Marcellas Dial game: he had blanket coverage for the majority of his snaps, was playing way too far off a handful of times, and looked lost a couple of times, as well. Quarterback Max Johnson was not very good for A&M on Saturday, but he still logged 250 passing yards. The Gamecocks still haven’t forced a turnover in a long time, extending the streak to 13 straight quarters without a takeaway.
