. South Carolina Gamecocks. TURNOVERS . Thumbs Down. Turnovers. Most of this season has been a struggle for the Gamecocks in the turnover department, but Sunday was the worst. The number is a bit inflated by some questionable offensive foul calls (ever heard of flopping, officials?), but the Gamecocks still gave the ball away 23 times, the most they have had in a game since 2019. Numerous passes went straight from white jerseys to red jerseys as if they were intended for the Utah players who “stole” them, and MiLaysia Fulwiley and Raven Johnson dribbled into unnecessary traffic several times, losing the ball for no apparent reason. To make matters worse, the Gamecocks could have surrendered the ball even more times as they had numerous other poor passes that should have been intercepted by Utah that the Utes instead dropped or knocked out of bounds. With how this team has played so far in the 2023-2024 season, no other team can beat the Gamecocks; however, if USC gives the ball away this much, they certainly can beat themselves.
