Couple of Gamecock Players Happy with NCAA's 'Free Pass' Year Due to COVID

They’re getting bonus time in college football.The NCAA’s giving players a free pass on 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic, so this season will not count against their eligibility.That’s fine with Gamecock tight end Will Register and linebacker Damani Staley, both of whom say they plan to take advantage of the extra year. The Gamecocks practice again this morning, then have a film session tomorrow before going under the lights at Williams-Brice Stadium Saturday--it will be their first night session in camp.
