Gamecocks' defense - hit em early and often

Josh Kendall has a nice look at how South Carolina is a Jekyll and Hyde situation defensively.
South Carolina’s defense has given up 37 points in the first half of two games this year and zero combined in the second half. (Kentucky’s two points Saturday night came on a fumble return on special teams.) The yards allowed discrepancy has been almost as dramatic. First half: 550. Second half: 296. And the real story is in the yards per play – 8.73 in the first half vs. 4.29 in the second half.
Taking our last game 'tween the hedges into mind, perhaps we can have a lead built before the lightning strikes...somewhere out towards Elberton.
