The Post & Courier called up former Gamecock coach Lou Holtz.
After coaching South Carolina, Lou went on to ESPN where he built a reputation as a master motivator! He had a big career as a public speaker making motivation speeches. So they asked him for some words to help South Carolina residents get through this pandemic.
It's that old saying, ‘May God give me the serenity to accept the things I can’t change and the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference. There’s certain things you can’t change and so you have to say, ‘What can I do to make this a positive experience?’”
He went on to say "God loves us and God’s going to be there for us. We should take this time and realize this has been positive in some respects — just as everything negative that’s happened to me in the past has turned out to be positive.”
