- Defense's struggle to stop the run is a major concern for the team
South Carolina State Bulldogs are entering their bye week after a disappointing start to the season. The team is currently 0-3 and their head coach, Buddy Pough, expressed his concern about the team’s lack of progress and maturity. Pough plans to go back to basics during the bye week, focusing on fundamentals and early-season preparation. Offensively, the Bulldogs will continue to play multiple quarterbacks, despite the original plan of having one starter. The team’s defense has struggled to stop the run, which has affected their ability to defend the pass. Pough remains hopeful that the team will improve during the bye week.
