Default Byrd could have stopped that run.

Wis. scoring on the kickoff return showed how much Byrd being hurt was a big deal. He has stopped that run a couple times, before in past games. Goes to show how one player can impact a game. Hope he has a speedy recovery.

The fact remains that South Carolinas special teams are still not very good.

I thought about Byrd making that tackle too! Luckily it did not matter in the long run.

Exactly right, but I'll admit I ended up being greedy once the game was over. I remember thinking, "If we hadn't messed up the P.A.T. attempt and allowed the TD on the kickoff return, we would have beaten a good team by 18 points." Oh well, I'm more than happy with winning by any score.

Default Re: Byrd could have stopped that run.

That came to mind to me as well. ST was pretty bad today. Kickoff return for a touchdown, botched extra point. 2 kickoff returns that didn't make it to the 15. Might be time to look for other options at ST coach.

Exactly and I hope that this gets a serious look at in the offseason.

I thought about that, but there's no telling in what position an individual defender would be in that situation.

I wouldn't mind seeing us look around for a new s.t coach. Robinson isn't really a good recruiter either

Default Re: Byrd could have stopped that run.

Ard should have stopped it. Instead, he sprinted to the 30 and the turned around and started chasing. He needs to just sit on the 40 and wait.

Byrd would have stopped that run. However, you don't just pick up 4.26 guys off the street. The kicker certainly should have filled the gap enough to slow him down.

Default Re: Byrd could have stopped that run.

There were players who could have made a tackle. It looked like they just weren't hustling or just not aggressive enough.
Yea Byrd could have run him down but Byrd also is aggressive enough to hit him head on.

Default Re: Byrd could have stopped that run.

Every year SOS re-emphasizes ST play...... and even talks of getting better players on special teams...... but it seems best we can do is have a "serviceable" special team. Seems like we are content with average, as long as it does not lose us ball games.

No doubt Byrd would have caught him. Fastest kid in CFB. Hands down.

Default Re: Byrd could have stopped that run.

Who was the Gamecock that got the "stiff arm" at the end of the run. He was the only one that had a good shot at him after he cleared the pile up in the front. I also believe that D. Byrd would have put a helmet on the guy. Lucky that it did not matter other than the fact that I say we would win by 14 to 17 points.

I think it was Whitehurst who is plenty fast and bigger than Byrd.

It was Whitehurst and he was lined up in Byrds spot. So maybe bird would have got there a split second faster.
