A rough season gets even rougher for South Carolina after dropping a 23-22 affair to The Citadel. Losing at home to an FCS team -- albeit a good one -- is not what interim coach Shawn Elliott had in mind. On the flip side, credit to Citadel coach Mike Houston and his group, who broke a 27-game losing streak to FBS teams and probably secured itself an at-large bid in the FCS playoffs with the win.
