In college ).Quarells or Chaz can't , because
they didn't even get to fighting weight
During off season ., Vic ? I don't know
But I know we're missing a leader , both
Hard working AND vocal ( with the true desire

In 2012 it was a mixture between 3 guys who had been in the program for 4/5 years. DJ Swearinger was a leader for the secondary, and Shaq Wilson with DeVonte Holloman were leaders for the LB core.

In 2011 Melvin Ingram and Travian Robertson (with Shaq Wilson) were leaders for the entire defense. Stephon Gilmore was also a leader for that secondary.

This year? We don't have a vocal leader yet. Leadership isn't based on age - it's based on work ethic and knowledge. One of those true freshman LB's need to realize that this defense lacks leadership and step up. Kawain Lewis and Skai Moore would be excellent choices.

We've missed Kadetrix Marcus those. Kadetrix (JJ) Marcus is a very vocal hard hitting safety. He has all the intangibles of being a leader in the secondary and for this defense. As far as the LB/DL I'm hoping Cooper will step up when he returns as well.

I'd say Vic but we might have to wait a little bit before we crown him the leader on the defense.

Tough for him to be a leader when he's suspended for a half for breaking team rules...I agree, I think he could/should/would be the likely person, but he's got to get himself right before he can lead. The season is young and he could become the leader, nobody can name him a leader, one earns it. BUT, I agree with what was said, there isn't a clear leader on D and that's what we are missing over years past.

Totes agree with this. His interviews are pretty refreshing. He seems to know the defense/coaching staff/players well and doesn't seem to beat around the bush. Kid is a brick too. Need him back

I don't see any leadership out there on Defense. Swag and Shaq ran the show last year. and Melvin, Swag, and Antonio Allen the year before. We just don't have anyone yet this year. Its up to the LBs and Spur/Safety to control the defensive game. And to be honest I hope Mike Davis takes over for Marcus as leader of the offense. Shaw ran the show, but Marcus was a real leader both on and off the field.

None of you know. You aren't on the team. You are just speculating and looking like idiots when you say "No one." Just b/c you are pissed about the last performance.

Not all leaders make a spectacle of themselves like DJ, and we had plenty of guys trying to pump up the team on the sidelines against UGA.

Leadership isn't just about getting "a fire lit under them boys."

haha a senior "leader" doesn't go break a team rule and miss the first half of our biggest game of the year. Vic is the same Vic that stepped foot on campus as a freshy

A leader doesn't always have to be loud and make spectacle you are correct but the leader does need to be able to get on em and make them step up when their back is against the wall. Someone to challenge them to dig a little deeper at practice and late in the fourth quarter. I did not see this at either game. You can be happy about the leadership on this defensive unit if you want to but I'm not. Not pissed just disappointed. I have that right as a 40+ year Gamecock fan
