Every year, SportsTalk travels to all of the FCS (formerly Division 1-AA) football schools in the days leading up to kickoff to preview each school’s upcoming season.
Tuesday night’s stop on the tour brought SportsTalk to Charleston Southern, who enter the 2013 with a new head coach in Jamey Chadwell. The Buccaneers are coming off a 5-6 campaign (3-3 in Big South play) highlighted by their win over in-state rival Presbyterian, and are hoping to continue that progression after going winless just two seasons ago. CSU opens their season at the Citadel in an inter-city rivalry for the second consecutive year.
Chadwell is not new to Charleston Southern having served as an assistant under former coach Jay Mills from 2004-2008, and said he is implementing a new spread option attack for the Bucs.
Phil Kornblut caught up with a few players as well, headlined by a captain, junior running back Christian Hayes.
Kornblut was also joined by a couple of senior defensive leaders in defensive end Will Hunt and linebacker Calvin Bryant.
