One of the biggest battles for positions in South Carolina took place on Thursday afternoon, and tonight offensive coordinator Mike Bobo was able to assess why the Gamecocks made the decision.
Colin Hill will kick off the South Carolina opening against Tennessee on Thursday night for talks in Carolina. Mike Bobo discussed why the Gamecocks went on a city transfer from Colorado.
“Deciding a quarterback, you want a boy when he enters this collection, these 10 boys in the collection and 70 boys on the side know that this is the man; that when it falls below the center, you have a chance to get the first drops, which is equal to a touchdown, “said Mike Bobo.
“Going back to all of them, they competed hard, but Colin was the most consistent in the camp, in the three fights. I appreciated everything. I appreciated every workout, every fight for these kids. Every workout I did, I got a grade and a report I really examined him with a fine-toothed comb. “
The race lasted about a month as the Gamecocks passed through the camp with Bobo, saying he had criticized and appreciated everything the quarterbacks had done with Hill to eventually win the battle.

Nick Musa said that at the beginning of the camp Hill has a shoulder from the NFL and can make a lot of throws on the field.
The biggest issue is Hill’s health, as the transfer comes from his third ACL tear, but Bobo said he has not seen a shiver in Hill in favor of his knee.
“There is no favoritism. There is no timid going out or no stepping on every throw. The other two times when I came back, it was timid,” Bobo said. “Now he’s like, ‘If I get hurt, I get hurt.’ None of them are mobile, but we still have to move in our pockets, climb up and find our throwing straps. with any fear of playing on his knee, he would not be the man. ”
Hill beat current Ryan Hilinski, who started his last 11 games last season after playing the back half of the season with an injured knee.
Hilinski made 58.1 percent of his passes and averaged 5.8 yards of experience last season, but lost to Hill.
Bobo mentioned that he had seen good things from the sophomore, but thought Hill had an advantage after four weeks of practice.
“Ryan has a bright future. The same thing I said to Ryan when we got here: there were things we had to work on. In his honor, he set his tail. He spent more time in football, he told me today, than ever in his life. He becomes a better footballer. He is becoming a better student of the game, “said Bobo.
“He puts him in a position where I think one day he will lead this team to great things. Right now, when we made the decision that we thought Colin was ahead of him. I think we are lucky to have two boys who are played football and has experience. ”
