Orangeburg, SC (WLTX) --- South Carolina State can certainly not be accused to taking Saturday off from the preseason grind.
The Bulldogs scrimmaged Saturday evening but the day started early this morning as the team held its annual Press and Picture Day.
South Carolina State is coming off a rare losing season (5-6). As Buddy Pough prepares for his 12th year at the helm of his alma mater, there have been some noticeable changes not only in attitude but personnel.
Former Bulldog assistant Joe Blackwell is back in Orangeburg as offensive coordinator. Blackwell has installed a faster-paced offense which the players like and hope that will translate to better production in 2013.
S.C. State opens the season August 31 at home against Coastal Carolina before travelling to Clemson the following week.
