USC-East Carolina Preview

COLUMBIA, SC - Two games into the 2016 season and USC has yet to generate any points in the first half against Vanderbilt or Mississippi State.

Carolina fell behind 10-0 at Vanderbilt and 24-0 to Mississippi State going into intermission.

"We've talked an awful lot about that as a staff," Muschamp said.

"Whether it's pre-game or whatever we're doing leading up to the game to get our guys more read to play. I think if you go back and look at Vanderbilt, offensively, it was execution. We didn't execute very well. We had some busted assignments and some things. I think we started three true freshmen on the offensive side of the ball.

"But defensively, we played extremely well".

The Mississippi State game was a different story.

"Defensively, we just stunk the place up," Muschamp said.

"We didn't play very well, didn't tackle very well. We had guys at the point of attack, had guys ready to make plays. They convert on a 3rd and 15 which was a critical, critical conversion to make it a 14-point game.

"And then offensively, we just couldn't get out of the hole. A lot of negative plays in the first half."

Muschamp hopes doing some things to allow his players to play faster earlier in the game will lead to a fast start for his team.
