Former South Carolina QB Phil Petty, a three-year starter for the program under head coach Lou Holtz, has passed away at 43 years old...
quote:

Petty led South Carolina on the biggest season-to-season turnaround in NCAA history. After the team went 0-11 in 1999, he took over as a full-time starter for the Gamecocks in 2000 — leading the program to an 8-4 record and an Outback Bowl victory over Ohio State. The team returned to the Outback Bowl again the following season and took down the Buckeyes in a postseason rematch.

He was legendary to SC. Just how we have players who are legendary to us, that other schools would not think are. Hester, Davie, etc.
