Gamecocks shuffle offensive line

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina offensive line coach Shawn Elliott didn't hide his disappointment this week regarding how his guys had played up front to this point.

Sure enough, the Gamecocks are making some changes for the Missouri game.

Sophomore Corey Robinson will start at left tackle with sophomore Mike Matulis moving to right tackle. The odd man out is sophomore Cody Gibson, who had started at right tackle each of the past two games.

Redshirt freshman Brandon Shell started at left tackle in the opener against Vanderbilt, but struggled. That's when the Gamecocks moved Matulis over to left tackle and inserted Gibson at right tackle.

This will be South Carolina's third different starting lineup in four games against what should be the Gamecocks' stiffest test to date for their offensive line. Missouri has a lot of speed on defense and won't be hesitant about bringing the pressure.
