Charleston Southern looks to rebound
SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — Charleston Southern is looking to rebound from a 3-8 season in 2010 and coach Jay Mills knows the Buccaneers have work ahead of them.
The Bucs won only one conference game and dropped their season finale, 70-3, to Coastal Carolina. By the time the year ended, Charleston Southern true freshman Malcolm Dixon was the team's starting quarterback.
Mills says Charleston Southern was a good team the first part of the year and led FCS playoff team Wofford with nine minutes left before falling 34-23. But Mills says circumstances forced him to use many younger, inexperienced players as the year progressed.
Particularly on defense, where the Buccaneers finished last in the Big South Conference. Cornerback Charles James had six interceptions a year ago and should be the marquee player on defense for the Bucs.
