Johnson, Gamecocks seeking to restore momentum

By PETE IACOBELLI

COLUMBIA, SC (AP) - South Carolina center T.J. Johnson says the Gamecocks are ready to wipe away the problems of the last two weeks.

Johnson has a good handle on the team's attitude.

He will start his 48th game, more than anyone in school history, when No. 17 South Carolina (6-2, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) takes on Tennessee (3-4, 0-4) this Saturday. Johnson has watched the team go from a middle-of-the-pack SEC team to challenger for the league title since he arrived before the 2008 season.

Still, he's as upset as anyone about the Gamecocks' 2-game slide that dropped them from national championship contender to trying to restore momentum after a 6-0 start.

Johnson says players have put the problems of the past two games behind them and get the season back on track.
