Returning Starters on Offense – 6 The Gamecocks finished just 100th in total offense and 75th in scoring offense last season, very uncharacteristic for a Spurrier led team. However, it was the first year in the new system and with a year under everyone’s belt, the offense has the chance to be one of the best in the conference. Quarterback Blake Mitchell is back to run the offense and he is blessed with numerous playmakers to aide him. Wide receiver Sidney Rice led the team with 70 catches for 1,143 yards and 13 touchdowns and will be a force once again despite a thumb injury in the spring. The best news could be in the running game, which finished 108th in the nation last year. Running back Cory Boyd returns after missing all of 2005. He was second on the team in both rushing and receiving in 2004. The offensive line must replace four starters from 2005 but the unit was extremely inconsistent so change could be good.
