South Carolina Gamecocks 2016 Schedule Breakdown

We continue our SEC schedule breakdown tour in Columbia, where the Gamecocks are trying to find themselves after making largely one of the worst hires during the off season in Will Muschamp:

9/1 at Vanderbilt
9/10 at Mississippi State
9/17 East Carolina
9/24 at Kentucky
10/1 Texas A&M
10/8 Georgia
10/22 U Mass
10/29 Tennessee
11/5 Missouri
11/12 at Florida
11/19 Western Carolina
11/26 at Clemson

Notes: South Carolina will open with a win against Vanderbilt, the worst team in the SEC. They then follow with losses to Mississippi State and East Carolina, while they finish with another loss at Kentucky. I project a 1-3 start.
The schedule in October largely mirrors the projections for September. I see losses to Texas A&M to start, and also to Georgia. The Gamecocks beat U Mass, but then fall to Tennessee.
There is a slight uptick for the Gamecocks in November, as they will likely win games against Missouri and Western Carolina, while they fall to Florida and Clemson, both on the road.
Overall Projected Record: 4-8
