It is hard to find many bad things to say about the Gamecock defense. The unit has stepped up game after game. This, despite the fact that they’ve been hit hard by injuries and suspensions throughout the season. Defensive lineman Ladi Ajiboye is one of the guys that was suspended earlier in the year. He made it back and has been making an impact ever since.
