It didn't take long for the first uniform malfunction of the season.
Elliott Fry, a true freshman walk-on kicker for South Carolina, must have lost the "A" at the end of "CAROLINA" across his jersey before the game as it was missing when he took the field for the first field goal try of his career.
That field goal was a 39-yarder that he drained right down the middle; afterward, ESPN broadcaster Rece Davis said that the longest kick Fry made in high school was 44 yards.
Given how superstitious kickers can be, Fry may ask for that letter to stay off the front of his jersey for a while.
