In fact, the Gamecocks are do busy that they've had to politely decline an invitation to visit the White House to commemorate the championship. The Gamecocks defeated Clemson on Thursday night and have a practice scheduled for Friday in preparation for facing Wofford on Sunday.
When South Carolina defeated Mississippi State in last April's national championship game, Staley was adamant that the Gamecocks would celebrate the achievement at the White House.
However, as of September the team had not received an invite to go to the White House, and Staley said she was unsure she would accept an invite given recent events that had transpired. "As I've been saying since our practices for the season started, all of our focus is on the season ahead".

President Donald Trump will host college sports championship teams at the White House on Friday, although the SC women's basketball team declined the invitation.
North Carolina's men's basketball team said earlier this year it could not agree on a date for a visit. It said the team was invited earlier this month.

Staley wondered publicly where it was as other teams were invited - or dis-invited, as National Basketball Association champion Golden State was after star Stephen Curry and Trump locked horns - before the Gamecocks were. While the White House has yet to confirm which NCAA teams accepted an invitation, given Trump's unusual recent sparring with athletes and athletic organizations, some may be focusing on other priorities.
