Marcus Lattimore suffered one of the worst leg injuries we’ve ever seen two years ago, and sadly, he never got back to 100 percent from it. The former South Carolina standout will reportedly retire after two years of trying to work his way back in the NFL. Lattimore left South Carolina early — despite initially telling Coach Steve Spurrier he’d return — and entered the NFL Draft after his junior year, the season in which he had that brutal injury. It was a risky move, given his first-round potential when healthy. The 49ers selected Lattimore in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft and signed a four-year, $2.46 million contract with a $300,584 signing bonus. In a sense, though, it was a low-risk move — had Lattimore returned to South Carolina and, like in the NFL, not been able to play he certainly wouldn’t have been drafted and earned that signing bonus. In hindsight, Lattimore made the right move to give the NFL a shot, get a signing bonus and earn a paycheck for a year and a half before ca ...

Mike Davis rushed for 111 yards and two touchdowns as South Carolina ended a two-game losing streak with a 41-10 victory over FCS opponent Furman on Saturday. The Gamecocks (4-3) also got a pair of touchdown passes from Dylan Thompson in putting away the Paladins (2-5), the defending Southern Conference champions who have lost five straight this season. The win moved South Carolina Coach Steve Spurrier to 51-0 all-time against teams outside the Power 5 or BCS-qualifying conferences. Davis went over 100 yards for the third straight game and fourth time this season. His 5-yard TD run in the opening quarter broke a 7-all tie and put the Gamecocks ahead to stay. He added a 2-yard scoring run just before halftime for a 28-7 lead. Thompson finished 14 of 22 for 262 yards, his highest total in four games since passing for 271 yards in a 38-35 win over Georgia on Sept. 13. Backup runner David Williams had 110 yards in relief of Davis. It was the first time in seven years South Carolina's had two players rush for ...

Preview segment: The South Carolina Gamecocks Now before I begin, I'll warn you ahead of time: My mom Andrea Hopson is a BIG fan of the Gamecocks (I'm guessing it's because of coach Spurrier). Actually, it's best if you ask her about it. Now then... Last season: Gamecock football had been hit or miss. They had Heisman winner George Rodgers and Top 20 finishes in the 1980's, but mostly it's been bad. So I bet they're ecstatic about former Florida Coach Steve Spurrier still having some magic in the tank. Last year it was a VERY rare 11-win season, including a Capital One Bowl win. Now that South Carolina's flying first-class, it's time to take the final step: Compete for a National Championship. Good news: 8 starters return from the best offensive team the school has ever had, with Dylan Thompson still leading the charge. RB Mike Davis looks primed for a breakthrough season, the O-line is very strong, and the linebackers on the team are young but good. Bad news: If something goes wrong with the secondary, i ...
Steve Spurrier's 'Saban Trollface' was a thing of beauty...
Steve Spurrier, Head Coach, South Carolina “Sure, I own Clemson, but they are coached by a grown man named Dabo, so is that really an accomplishment? It doesn’t feel like one.” “Is Nick Saban paying recruits? That’s crazy. I’m not saying that Nick Saban gives money to recruits. All I’m saying is that Nick Saban identifes elite athletes and then the Bag Man comes in and pays them. That’s all I’m saying.”
Gone are the days when Bruce Ellington would rush from a basketball workout with South Carolina teammates to a football meeting room to learn the complex schemes of Coach Steve Spurrier. Ellington's only focus is the San Francisco 49ers and making an impact on the NFL. ''It was fun, all the rushing around,'' said Ellington, taken in the fourth round by the 49ers. ''I thought I could do and I went after it.'' Ellington hosted a youth camp Friday at his high school with his older cousin, Arizona Cardinals running back Andre Ellington who twice rushed for 1,000 yards while playing college ball at Clemson.

Jalen Christian is done with recruiting, and if the activity around his school in recent weeks is any indication, he’ll likely be playing in the SEC next year. While he’s the No. 3-ranked player in Maryland, it appears he’ll be leaving ACC country and coming to South Carolina. Christian is a do-everything style cornerback/wide receiver who runs the 40-yard dash around 4.5 seconds. His finalists include the Gamecocks, Kentucky, Maryland, Wisconsin and West Virginia. He has said repeatedly he’d like to play offense. The activity around campus has been two on-campus visits by two different South Carolina coaches–G.A. Mangus and Steve Spurrier Jr.–in just the past two weeks. Christian (5-10/165) is rated a four-star prospect and the No. 145 prospect in America. He had 610 receiving yards last year at Damascus High School in Maryland. He’ll go public with his decision at 2 p.m. today.
Lorenzo Nunez, Georgia’s No. 1 QB, committed to South Carolina. Another Georgia quarterback will get to play for Steve Spurrier. Lorenzo Nunez, the state’s No. 1-ranked prospect at quarterback, committed to South Carolina over N.C. State after his football practice on Thursday at Harrison High School. Former Flowery Branch High School standout Connor Shaw just wrapped up his career at South Carolina, starting for three seasons and finishing as the winningest quarterback in school history. “He picked South Carolina because of several reasons,” said his father, Del Nunez. “He’ll get a coach (Spurrier) that is well-versed in getting quarterbacks to the next level, and teaching quarterbacks to play the position. The relationships we have with Coach Spurrier and (QB coach G.A. Mangus) are tremendous. South Carolina is located close to home, it’s an SEC program, and it has good academics. Those were the factors, I would say.” The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Nunez is rated as a 4-star prospect, the No. 8 ...

Steve Spurrier: “These two Capital One Bowls in a row are pretty nice, but that state championship ain’t bad either!” Dabo: “We’re the first from South Carolina to ever win a BCS game.” Spurrier: "I called Danny Ford and said, ‘Danny, does Dabo forget that Clemson in 1981 went down to the Orange Bowl, won the National Championship and went undefeated?' They didn't call it a BCS bowl back then, but it was the same bowl, the Orange Bowl, and the Orange Bowl has always been a major bowl."
Fresh off Clemson’s Dabo Swinney attempting to troll South Carolina, Steve Spurrier is firing back, via ESPN.com. “Well, he’s right,” Spurrier said. “We’ve never even been to a BCS bowl. We can’t get invited. We’re in the SEC.” With the BCS coming to a close, Spurrier may not have to use his rebuttal in the near future. Thankfully, the new College Football Playoff will allow two teams from the same conference. The Ol’ Ball Coach has turned around a dormant program that has finished with 11 wins the last three seasons, and coming off another 11-2 season, Spurrier is declaring the Gamecocks the ‘national champions of bowl season’, via ESPN.com. “We’re looking for any kind of championship we can find around here. We don’t have many. It’s amazing how we found ways to win this year. It just seemed like we kept having good things happen to us ever since we left Knoxville [a 23-21 loss to Tennessee on Oct. 19]. “There’s going to be about 11 of us who are somewhere around 11-2 ...
Amen! (From bleacher report) We could go into all of the X's and O's, quote enough stats to make a mathematician queasy, or just spout off some "the SEC is God's gift to football" nonsense, but instead we'll just state some simple truths. Connor Shaw is one of the best and one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the entire country. Bruce Ellington is an absolute beast of a wide receiver. Jadeveon Clowney proved, once again, why he's the consensus favorite to be the top overall NFL draft selection this spring. Mike Davis is so good, he could be a starting running back for Wisconsin. Skai Moore, a freshman with two interceptions, isn't one of those defensive guys who plays on defense because he can't catch or run with the ball. He's dangerous anywhere. Steve Spurrier could outcoach Nick Saban, Mark Dantonio, Art Briles, David Cutcliffe and Bill Snyder, even if they were all on the same staff together—or, if not, at least give better postgame pressers. And, finally, South Carolina is the definition of a ...

GAMECOCKS ARRIVE IN ORLANDO Bowl Week Practices Begin Friday ORLANDO, FLA. (December 26, 2013) – The University of South Carolina football team arrived safely in Orlando on Thursday afternoon. The Gamecocks went through a short conditioning session upon their arrival at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld Hotel and will begin bowl practices on Friday morning. “We landed on time,” said head Coach Steve Spurrier. “We’re here just like we were two years ago – same hotel, wearing the same uniforms, hoping for the same results. But we’ve got to play well if we expect to beat Wisconsin. They are a very good team. I think they’re favored over us, so I guess if we beat them, it will be an upset. Our guys practiced pretty well back in Columbia and we hope to have some good practices here. “We’ve got everybody healthy except Damiere Byrd,” continued the Head Ball Coach. “We’ll miss Damiere. He’s our deep-threat, long-ball guy. Hopefully one of the other players will step forward and mayb ...

South Carolina: Steve Spurrier continues to amaze at South Carolina in what he’s been able to accomplish there. The Gamecocks won 10 games again in the regular season and will face Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl. Alabama and South Carolina are the only SEC teams to have won 10 or more in each of the past three seasons. What’s more, the Gamecocks are the only team in the country this season to have beaten three teams (Clemson, Missouri and UCF) that finished in the top 15 of the final BCS standings. Just sayin' ;) GO *** !
So a loss to Tennessee keeps Steve Spurrier and South Carolina out of the SEC Title Game... and possibly BCS Title Game.
How would you, gentlemen, evaluate the job that Steve Spurrier has done at South Carolina?

So the GA Dawgs beat South Carolina (Steve Spurrier), Florida Gators, LSU and GA Tech this season and barely lost to Auburn on a fluke play. Not a totally lost year.
There is no doubt in my mind that Steve Spurrier is one of the greatest football coaches of all time. He has done a fabulous job at South Carolina and also did great jobs at Florida and Duke. Thank you coach for your accomplishments.
Real shame the Gamecocks couldn't get to Atlanta again. Johnny Football didn't get it done tonight against Mizzou. As for the Clemson/Carolina game, very exciting. I think Carolina after 5 wins in a row have earned their rightful place in South Carolina College Football and nationally as an elite program. Congrats to Connor Shaw, Steve Spurrier and the USC football program.
Quote from Steve Spurrier when asked, after tonight's game, how South Carolina had managed to beat Clemson 5 years in a row, he said, " I don't know except that Clemson does not seem to play their best against us." Absof_glutely Brilliant.
Steve Spurrier has performed a miracle in South Carolina. He has taken the program to a level that few could imagine, I hope the fans realize how fortunate they are to have him as a coach.

"Next week Florida travels to South Carolina, not to play a game, but to kidnap Steve Spurrier and bring him back to Gainesville"
this was messaged to me, thanks Iain Poll. Unprecedented success...thats what Urban Meyer bought to the Gator Nation. Two National Championships, a Sugar Bowl and a Heisman. He won the 2006 championship with a team largely recruited by Ron Zook, a team that were 'inept'...hmmm well recruited and badly coached I would say. Now the glory days are gone, Urban was a poor recruiter but a great coach, he was replaced by a great recruiter, but a terrible coach (he had never been a Head Coach before). Now the program is at a cross roads, facing the possibility of decending to the level of Tennessee or Kentucky. Will Muscamp obviously has the passion and the drive, but no where the level of experience or talent. No one in the Gator Nation would be ashamed of our record if there were signs of a competitive future. Steve Spurrier struggled at South Carolina, but there was always the feeling that they were on the verge of somthing special. Not at Florida, not with Muschamp, we are on the verge of armageddon..loosing ...

We sat down with Steve Spurrier, head football coach of the University of South Carolina Gamecocks, to learn what he believes makes the state of South Carolina so special.
The father of South Carolina defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles says his son will leave school after his junior season to enter the NFL draft. Buddy Quarles said by phone Wednesday his son had talked with Gamecocks Coach Steve Spurrier and defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward about his decision. Buddy Quarles says Spurrier told his son that he could walk with the seniors and other players leaving early at South Carolina's final home game against Clemson on Nov. 30.
South Carolina junior DT Kelcy Quarles will enter the 2014 NFL Draft, according to his father. "Quarles' departure is a mutual decision between the player and coaching staff, Buddy Quarles said," beat writer Josh Kendall writes. "Head Coach Steve Spurrier had an idea that Quarles was considering turning pro and told the Hodges, S.C., native to walk with the team’s seniors during pregame ceremonies on Senior Day before the Nov. 30 game against Clemson." Quarles has drawn a lot of buzz lately, specifically from draft insider Tony Pauline, but we don't quite see the top-75 projection just yet.
best fake quotes regarding the games this weekend: What They Meant To Say “Ron Zook keeps calling my phone and laughing. He just laughs until I hang up.” – Will Muschamp, Head Coach, University of Florida “I thought about losing this one just to they keep Muschamp around for another year. Kliff Kingsburry with the kind of talent he could get at Florida scares the *** out of me.” – Mark Richt, Head Coach, University of Georgia “It was a nice win. Mississippi State played well… The defense… How the *** did we lose to Tennessee?” - Steve Spurrier, Head Coach, University of South Carolina
The have won 7 or more games in all but one of Steve Spurrier's 9 seasons at South Carolina.
STEVE IS RIGHT AP) -- Steve Spurrier believes the best way for South Carolina to build on its dramatic, double-overtime win on the road over a top 5 opponent is to forget it happened. That won't be too easy considering how the 14th-ranked Gamecocks roared back last weekend. With its starting quarterback's status uncertain, South Carolina hopes to avoid a letdown when it hosts Mississippi State on Saturday. Trailing 17-0 entering the fourth quarter, the Gamecocks (6-2, 4-2 SEC) rallied behind banged-up quarterback Connor Shaw for a 27-24 win over then-No. 5 Missouri. The victory kept the Gamecocks' hopes of winning the SEC's Eastern Division alive. Defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles said it also brought the team closer together. Spurrier said that's great -- but only if South Carolina puts aside the celebrations and focuses on Mississippi State (4-3, 1-2). Especially with Shaw, 22-5 as the Gamecocks starter, questionable since he hasn't practiced this week while dealing with the virus that sidelined him at the ...
Congratulations to South Carolina's Gamecocks for upsetting and previously undefeated Missouri today. I watched the game bc the Tide and Tiger games were laughers, and so was this one, in the sense that Mizzou took a 17 point lead into the 4th quarter. I probably wouldn't have watched this one except for my respect for Steve Spurrier, the coach, formerly at Florida in their glory days, and the fact that this team never felt like they knew they were beat. The old ball coach pulled a few tricks out of his hat and the Gamecocks scored 17 unanswered points in the 4th quarter, while the defense stiffened and held Missouri scoreless. Then, at the end of the second overtime, a potentially game-tying 20-something yard field goal bounced off the uprights into the night, preserving the victory for South Carolina and breaking the hearts of the Missouri faithful. Final score: South Carolina 27, Mizzou 24. Great game, Gamecocks! Way to hang in there and persevere through 3 turnovers in the first half and keep on belie ...
A few late night random thoughts: 1.)Miley and Miles, so much alike when it comes to "moves". Miley likes twerking, Miles quirking. Whether dancing or coaching, their "moves" are always a little unusual. 2.) The obstruction call that ended the third game of the World Series now gives the "Fall Classic" an entirely different meaning! 3.) The Old Ball Coach, Steve Spurrier, kept his cool and wits and led South Carolina to a 27-24 double overtime win over Missouri after being down 17-0 and looking out of it after three quarters. Mizzou thus drops out of the running to be this year's version of last season's Notre Dame---a team with an unblemished record due to schedule good fortune (No Alabama or LSU for Missouri, unless in SEC Championship Game) and some unusual wins.
OMG! What a great game that Missouri/South Carolina game was!. . . S.C. 27 - Miz. 24 in two overtimes. . . I think Steve Spurrier is the sly-est weasel in all of College Football, and I don't mean that as an insult . . .
South Carolina has just whipped Missouri...Missouri missed a field goal in double overtime! I never thought I would be happy to see Steve Spurrier win anything. Maybe I'm just glad Missouri lost.GO DAWGS!
All of my friends cheering for South Carolina... You're dead to me. The thought that it would benefit UGA would require us to play like we deserve to be in the SEC championship which we clearly do not. Plus I will NEVER cheer for Steve Spurrier. Go Dawgs.
Way to go South Carolina Gamecocks! Whether you like them or not they were behind Missouri 17-0 going into the 4th quarter. Regular quarterback Conner Shaw hurt last week had not played at all. Coach Steve Spurrier said we need you and he went in and brought them back throwing 2 touchdowns and a field goal to tie the game 17-17 with 43 seconds. Teams went into overtime Missouri scored touchdown. South Carolina's Shaw threw a touchdown and made it 24-24. Gamecocks kicked field goal in second overtime. Missouri tried a field goal and ball hit the goal post and missed. South Carolina Gamecocks beat undefeated Missouri 27-24. What and awesome game from a coach that went to school and played ball in Johnson City, Tennessee. Way to go Gamecocks!!
Even though I'm not a fan of Steve Spurrier, congrats to South Carolina for beating Missouri. Why are they in the SEC anyway?!!!
I don't think I've ever pulled for Steve Spurrier to win before but I did tonight and after two overtones South Carolina beat Missouri 27-24
I can actually say good job Steve Spurrier and South Carolina! Never thought I'd say it.
Holly Crap! Steve Spurrier can always find a way to beat someone, what a game between South Carolina and Missouri!
How does a D1 kicker hit the post on a 24 yard FG in OT? I never like to see South Carolina win, but I'm glad another Top 5 falls. Steve Spurrier just got a miracle win.

Not a big fan of Steve Spurrier but I LOVE that they kept on trying. Great game way to stay in the game South Carolina!! Great win for you.

Andy Gray I was giving you grief about losing and Tn winning not sure why I said by. I didn't mean that we beat you but when I read it.. It sounded like I meant that. It was late and sometimes I have a tendency to add words. I was totally excited about beating Steve Spurrier that I got carried away. He made a statement about coaching more times at Neyland Stadium than most of our coaches. So I guess he was a little full of himself. Anyways the Dawgs lost and Vols won (we beat South Carolina.)

Palardy made a 19-yard field goal as time expired Saturday for a 23-21 victory over No. 11 South Carolina that ended the Volunteers' 19-game losing streak against ranked opponents. Palardy had predicted such a scenario a day earlier in a conversation with Tennessee coach Butch Jones. "I said, 'You've got the game-winner tomorrow, right?'" Jones said. "And he said, 'I got you, Coach.'" The loss may have proved doubly painful for South Carolina, which had a four-game winning streak snapped. Quarterback Connor Shaw left the game after being sacked by Marlon Walls and Daniel McCullers with less than five minutes remaining. South Carolina Coach Steve Spurrier said afterward that Shaw had a sprained knee. "I think he sort of got tackled on it," Spurrier said. "It collapsed under him, he said." Tennessee (4-3, 1-2 SEC) got into field-goal range on a spectacular 39- ...
I just want to say: Tennessee, 23 - South Carolina (ranked 11 going into the game) 21. In case you missed it: Tennessee, 23 - Steve Spurrier's team, 21. A little more respect, Steve, next time you step into Neyland Stadium.
October 17, 2013 As we go into this weekend, Tennessee has had an extra week to heal and to prepare for the South Carolina Gamecocks. As we mentioned last week, our Vols seemed to take a big stride toward turning the corner, but, as we also mentioned, they still have work to do. And they still need that so-called "signature" win that for which we have been waiting a while. This is another opportunity. Tennessee will have its work cut out for it, and not just because South Carolina has the talent and, yes, coaching advantage. Love him or hate him, Steve Spurrier's resume is pretty stout. Two weeks ago, his rant regarding defensive end Jadaveon Clowney was all over the news, and SEC teams started licking their chops. Then South Carolina came out a week later and bludgeoned Arkansas. The garnet and black are still pretty doggone good. What will be the key factor in this game, you ask? Well, this writer believes that it is one of those intangible things that neither team had any control over - that b ...

Steve Spurrier praises Tyler Murphy's performance for Gators.Clear off a spot on the Tyler Murphy bandwagon for Steve Spurrier. The Ol' Ball Coach spent South Carolina's open week catching up on some College Football, including Saturday's national SEC game between Florida and Tennessee. By day's end, no one had impressed the man synonymous with great quarterback play at Florida more than Murphy. "I tell you what, yesterday the most impressive player, I thought, in College Football was the quarterback that came into the game down at Florida. A kid named Tyler Murphy," Spurrier said Sunday to open his weekly teleconference. "It’s very unfortunate that Jeff Driskel broke his fibula, I guess, in his ankle. But I didn’t even know who the second-team quarterback was down there; I don’t think anybody knew too much. "And then we find out this kid’s been there five years paying his dues, doing whatever they ask him to do, so it was really sort of a warm-heart feeling when a young man who has been there fiv ...
Can "TENNESSEE" make it to a bowl game in Coach Butch Jones first year with the program? The answer is "Yes"... The toughest part of Tennessee's schedule is remaining with the Vols facing Alabama in Tuscaloosa, while Georgia & South Carolina come to Neyland Stadium. Tennessee can become bowl eligible with a minimum of 6 wins, we already have 2 so how do we get 4 more wins with the schedule that is remaining. Tennessee could pull off an upset against one of those 3 teams which is very, very, and I mean VERY doubtful. I love staying optimistic but facts are facts and Tennessee will not travel to Tuscaloosa and knock off Alabama. The only way Tennessee will be the Tide in Tuscaloosa is if Alabama forfeited the game and didn't show up. Nevertheless out of Georgia and South Carolina "IF" "If they were to pull off an upset it would probably be against South Carolina and how I wished it would happen. Nothing in this life thrills me more than seeing old Steve Spurrier get mad and throw down his visor. The most li ...

"Clemson at South Carolina (TBD) – For as well as Dabo Swinney has done at Clemson, he just can’t get past Steve Spurrier in the Palmetto Bowl. Both teams were ranked in the top fifteen last year, and barring some craziness over the course of their seasons, I’d expect them to go into this season’s edition with similar respect.

In College Football Recruiting news, it definitely has been a good weekend for the SEC, the toughest conference in College Athletics. Three programs who have coaches in the earlier parts of their tenures, and which appear to have bright futures, got solid, 3* 2014 commitments, while another with a legend and possibly some very good years ahead as well picked up a very good 2015 player: 1. ATH Brandon Powell, from Deerfield Beach HS in Deerfield Beach, FL, has committed to Tennessee and Coach Butch Jones. 2. DT Adrian Middleton, a student-athlete at South Warren HS in Bowling Green, KY, has become the second in-state 2014 commit for the Kentucky Wildcats and Mark Stoops. 3.

South Carolina Coach Steve Spurrier looked around the room recently at a meeting of SEC head football coaches and couldn't help but notice that he was in the minority. AP Photo/Josh D. Weiss They don't make them like former SEC coaches Pat Dye and Vince Dooley anymore. No, it had nothing to do with his customary visor, and he wasn't drawing up ball plays on a napkin or looking at his watch and wondering if he'd make his tee time. "I got to thinking, 'Where are all the guys who played football in this league over the last 30-some years?'" Spurrier recounted. "You don't see many former players from the league coming back [to the SEC] to be Head Coaches anymore." Over the past decade, there have been a few such as former Mississippi State coach Sylvester Croom (Alabama), former Kentucky coach Joker Phillips (Kentucky) and former Auburn coach Gene Chizik (Florida). And before Nick Saban took over at Alabama, former Alabama quarterback Mike Shula headed up the Crimson Tide's program. Currently, though, Spurrie ...

This year Auburn plays Washington State, Arkansas State, Western Carolina, Florida Atlantic. The idea that other SEC coaches may vote to kill the Auburn vs Georgia rivalry or the Bama vs UT rivalry instead of giving up a cream puff game just *** LSU, Ole Miss, and South Carolina think it isn't fair and support ending 2 of the best rivalries in College Football. I don't think its fair that three schools that don't understand the meaning of rivalry get an equal vote to kill the south's oldest rivalry. I respect LSU, but LSU owns their state, Tulane hasn't stood in their way of a SEC championship in a LONG time. Auburn plays the toughest SEC schedule year after year. Auburn used to play Florida every year as well as Georgia, and Bama and LSU. The SEC killed the Auburn vs Florida rivalry. Les Miles, Hugh Freeze, and Steve Spurrier kiss my butt. War *** Tradition Lives in the state of Alabama.
Some things never change. At the Southeastern Conference Spring Meetings, Steve Spurrier held court, which is always a treat. He did his best to say something nice about Georgia -- and for him that is hard -- but in the end, couldn't resist the opportunity to tweak the Poodles a bit. Writes Chris Lowe of ESPN: "Spurrier remains undaunted. He points out that Georgia has won the Eastern Division each of the last two years despite losing to South Carolina. He doesn’t stop there, either. “Give Georgia credit. They won all the rest of their games and beat Florida down there,” said Spurrier, who’s 14-2 against East opponents over the last three years. “They were division champs. Heck, they were one play away from winning the National Championship. That pass gets off (against Alabama), and if their guy catches it at the end of the game, I believe they would have been favored over Notre Dame.” Spurrier then cracked: “They were close to winning it all and got clobbered at our place.” South Carolina ...
Are you a Steve Spurrier fan?? Love him or hate him, the former Gator-turned-Gamecock is getting the governor's "Great Floridian" award. Spurrier won the Heisman Trophy as QB of UF in the 60s..and coached the team to the national title before bailing for the NFL, then South Carolina. 70 people have received the award since 1971, including former UF QB Tim Tebow. Is Spurrier deserving? Probably, right?

Spring Practice Report: With Connor Shaw expected to miss all of spring practice as he rehabs from foot surgery, there is no better time than now for South Carolina's group of young quarterbacks to impress Steve Spurrier. After one practice, they're off to a good start. Redshirt freshman Brendan Nosovitch, true freshman Connor Mitch and walk-on Perry Orth, a redshirt freshman from Ponte Vedra, Fla., by way of Florida State College, impressed the coach with their performances during a two-hour workout on Tuesday afternoon at the Proving Grounds. "(Mitch) threw OK. Nosovitch threw some good ones in there. Both those guys got a lot of snaps," Spurrier said. "Of course, Dylan (Thompson) was throwing well. These guys have been throwing since January. It's neat when you've got players that love playing football and love practicing and love trying to learn all they can about their position. That's what we've got here with all these quarterbacks." Nosovitch, the career record-holder in Pennsylvania with 12,877 to ...

Clemson unveiled a brand new indoor practice facility last month that Head Coach Dabo Swinney was very excited about. South Carolina head Coach Steve Spurrier wasn’t impressed, though, when speaking with reporters a few weeks ago.
Recently I watched a show.. I think it was entitled “In My Own Words”.. it was about the life of Steve Spurrier, Head Football Coach at South Carolina. Spurrier has been around a while. If you follow College Football any you know that he’s known as “the head ‘ball coach.” Spurrier played collegiately at the University of Florida, won a Heisman and then, went back there as a Head Coach. But, prior to going to Florida, he was Head Coach at Duke. In this television show, he said that he would always have a special place in his heart for Duke University because they hired him twice. I think I read once that he votes for Duke in one of the College Football polls as a way of expressing his appreciation. That’s his way of not forgetting a school that helped him. Have you ever helped someone and you never hear from them again? Ever had someone you were close to move away and ASSURE you they are going to "stay in touch" but it doesn't happen? Or, have you ever seen someone in a store.. you are talki ...
As we look ahead to the final season of the BCS in 2014 before we go to a four team playoff, the SEC is poised to push the streak to an unprecedented 8. Here are the teams that could compete. LSU- All their offensive pieces return and even though they lose a lot of defensive talent to the draft, Les Miles and John Chavis will be sure to have their defense playing at a top 5 level. The game of the year will be November 9th in Tuscaloosa, Alabama to see who can conquer the mighty SEC West. Alabama- AJ McCarron's senior year with TJ Yeldon as the running back and Amari Cooper catcching touchdowns is scary. Add in Kirby Smart's defense and we could be talking threepeat. The Tide travel to College Station, Texas in their first conference game which will set the scene for the National Championship picture, and even if they get past Johnny Football they still have the Tigers in early November.

Saban in Forbes Magazine. Forbes Magazine has ranked its 10 most powerful coaches in College Football, and Alabama's Nick Saban again tops the list. South Carolina's Steve Spurrier is No. 8 and LSU's Les Miles is No. 9. In coming up with the list, Forbes looked at each coach's salary, its proportion of the school's total coaching salaries and athletic expenditures, the football budget at the coach's disposal and how much it would cost the school to terminate his contract before the end of the year. Forbes excluded the eight coaches whose salary data is not available in USA Today's database of coaches' pay and also did not consider any coaches who either lost or left their coaching positions in 2012. In ranking Saban No. 1, Forbes said, "Saban leads all coaches in almost every measure of power.

He is only surpassed in the category of his school’s coaching budget, of ...
Spurrier talks about Michigan: In the words of Steve Spurrier, with half the team unavailable because of conflicts with final exams, South Carolina's first workout in preparation for the Outback Bowl clash with Michigan on New Year's Day was an abbreviated one. As a result, preparations for the Wolverines will begin in earnest on Sunday when the players are given the preliminary scouting report on the Wolverines, said Spurrier, who described Saturday's workout as "helter skelter." In addition to players studying for final exams, most of the USC assistant coaches have been on the road recruiting since the regular season ended on Nov. 24 with a 27-17 win over rival Clemson, so the first two weeks of December have been hectic for both the players and coaches. "We'll really start getting into Michigan tomorrow. We'll have our scouting report and get all that stuff going," Spurrier said. "Coaches have been traveling around (recruiting), players taking finals and we'll really start getting into Michigan and get ...
Steve Spurrier has received a two-year contract extension that will keep him at South Carolina through 2017. The university's board of trustees unanimously approved the extension Monday. There was no salary increase in the deal. Spurrier is scheduled to again earn $3.3 million in 2013. A year ago, trustees gave Spurrier two additional years on the contract after the football season, then voted him a raise of $475,000 this past February to his current salary. Spurrier has led the Gamecocks to consecutive seasons with double-digit victories, a first in program history. South Carolina (No. 10 BCS, No. 11 AP) finished 6-2 in the Southeastern Conference for a second straight year. Spurrier became the school's all-time victories leader with his 65th win when the Gamecocks defeated Clemson on Nov. 24.

During the course of his Hall of Fame career, Steve Spurrier has owned more than a few teams and more than a few coaches. He might as well start paying taxes on Dabo Swinney and Clemson. Not only did South Carolina beat Clemson 27-17 on Saturday for the fourth straight time -- the first time that’s happened in the series since 1951-54 -- but the Gamecocks won it with their backup quarterback, Dylan Thompson, going the whole way and passing for 310 yards and three touchdowns. Starter Connor Shaw missed the game with a sprained foot. Consider, too, that South Carolina snapped Clemson’s 13-game home winning streak and won for the second year in a row with its best player, running back Marcus Lattimore, out of the lineup. Lattimore also missed last season’s game with a knee injury. Think we’ll hear any “Real Carolina” rants from Swinney this week? (source: ESPN.com)

Steve Spurrier beats Clemson, becomes S. Carolina's winningest coach Associated Press CLEMSON, S.C. -- Backup quarterback Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns, Jadeveon Clowney had 4½ sacks and South Carolina (No. 12 BCS, No. 13 AP) won its fourth straight over Clemson (No. 11, No. 12) 27-17 on Saturday. Thompson got the call for the Gamecocks (10-2) because starter Connor Shaw sprained his left foot last week against Wofford.

South Carolina Clemson – Gamecocks, Tigers Clash In Season Finale Saturday Posted by Blake Frazier on 11/20/2012 5:06:35 PM The No. 12 South Carolina Gamecocks and No. 11 Clemson Tigers don’t like one another very much.

Barnstormers Land Rookie Lineman Kyle Nunn November 9, 2012 - Arena Football League (AFL) Iowa Barnstormers DES MOINES - Iowa Barnstormers Head Coach and Director of Football Operations Mike Hohensee announced late Thursday that the team has been assigned Offensive Lineman Kyle Nunn on a one-year contract. He becomes the eighth player assigned to the Barnstormers roster for the 2013 season. Nunn (6-6, 300) joins the Barnstormers after spending time with the New York Jets in their rookie mini-camp. Prior to that he spent 5 seasons at the University of South Carolina (2007-11), where he played for Steve Spurrier. After redshirting his freshman year, Nunn made over 20 career starts at Offensive Tackle.

The talk besides the Alabama/LSU game this week has been can the Tide beat an NFL team. This conversation was started by South Carolina Coach Steve Spurrier who probably was just making a joke, but many took the joke and ran with it. Now from fans, NFL coaches, sports writers and college coaches are all discussing whether or not this Alabama team could beat the worse team in the NFL Most, like Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, say no way. "The falsehood is to think that could ever take place. It isn't even close," Carroll said Wednesday before a Seahawks practice. "Alabama has a great team, and Nick (Saban) is a fantastic coach. But when you match up the interior lines against a regular NFL team, on either side of the ball, it wouldn't even be close." That might be true, but if you watched the Kansas City Chiefs play last night, you might beg to differ. Don't you think the Chiefs could have used an AJ McCarron at quarterback or a T.J.

An early report stated that Lattimore broke his femur and patella and tore four ligaments in his right knee (ACL, MCL, PCL and LCL) but Steve Spurrier said on Sunday that Lattimore instead dislocated his knee, which is much better news for Lattimore's future.] In one of the most gruesome injuries in College Football history, South Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore severely injured his right leg during Saturday’s game vs. Tennessee. Lattimore was being dragged down in the second quarter when Tennessee CB Eric Gordon hit Lattimore extremely low, resulting in the possibly catastrophic injury. While the extent of Lattimore injury is unclear, it certainly appears his recovery will be extremely long. One of the universally well-liked players in College Football, this injury comes almost exactly one year to the day after another brutal injury that Lattimore suffered that caused him to miss the rest of the 2011 season with a torn ligament in his left knee. In a classy move by both teams, South Carolina and Tennessee ...
Steve Spurrier terms Marcus Lattimore's knee injury as "severe." Tragic for South Carolina's best player.
South Carolina needs to focus on Marcus Lattimores health at this point instead of how many touchdowns he can score for them. Enough is enough. Hes been hurt more than any young man should have to endure. Hes a ball player for sure. And if he can crawl on the field. Hes going to play ball. Someone at S. Carolina needs to be the adult. Be the professional and stop allowing this young man to continually keep getting hurt. Its obvious they want him running touchdowns instead of being healthy. It makes me sick. The old ball coach is trying to win football games no matter the cost his kids have to pay. But thats Steve Spurrier. He aint no Nick Saban. South Carolina aint no Alabama. Oh *** ..S.C. Quarterback just got hurt. Wonder if Spurrier will make Marcus Lattimore play quarterback.
Has much as I have a deep "dislike" for South Carolina and all things Steve Spurrier -I truly hate to see a hardworking college athlete question his future from one play. Good luck Marcus Lattimore!
I hate South Carolina and I hate Steve Spurrier but I truly feel sorry for Marcus Lattimore. That was gross
Steve Spurrier and South Carolina better line a job up for Marcus Lattimore. This guy has given everything to them.
One of the storylines of Florida’s 44-11 rout of South Carolina on Saturday was the change Steve Spurrier made at quarterback to begin the third quarter. Starter Connor Shaw was an ineffective 9-of-20 for 72 yards and benched at halftime in favor of backup Dylan Thompson. But Thompson, who filled in...
Yeah the Florida Gators beat South Carolina! I love to see Steve Spurrier suffer after leaving UF.
With Florida returning to powerhouse form, I wonder if Steve Spurrier will stay much longer at South Carolina. I think he's done all he can there. Augusta National awaits, coach.
announces "Never a dull moment in the SEC, and once again those Gamecocks out of Columbia South Carolina find themselves in the middle of the Spotlight. Upset and ready to prove to the nation they still belong in the national discussion, after last week's heart wrenching loss in the Death Valley, the Gamecocks take on a scrappy Florida team who has not given up a single 4th quarter point. The Gators are lead by upstart Quarterback Jeff Driskel, and a power running game that took down the Bayou Bengals the week before South Carolina's visit. On Paper the *** and the Gator's are eerily similar, both touting smash-mouth defenses, and offenses that once they get rolling are hard to slow down. Will Florida be able to stay perfect? Or will Steve Spurrier return to his Alma Mater with some game-breaking trick plays left in that ol' Visor? It's Florida, its SOUTH CAROLINA! This IS the S-E-C!" Game time is 3:30 pm (LET'S GO! GAME!)
Time to poke a little fun at Steve Spurrier and South Carolina before they take on the Gators in the Swamp! Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012 3:30 P.M. J. Chris Jones
Things I'm looking for this weekend in College Football, Baswell style (Some stuff I want to share before heading to the Eudora Welty Writer's Symposium at the "W" in Columbus) I look for South Carolina to bounce back at "The Swamp" against Florida. Yes, Marcus Lattimore will more than likely not play, and the Gamecocks lineup resembles a MASH unit--DE Jadaveon Clowney may not get to play either. All in all, Steve Spurrier didn't fall out of the wheelbarrow carrying the sweet potatoes yesterday."The Head Ball Coach" is going to find some plays in the back of the playbook that I'm sure he's dusting off for this game. And he'll have success. I look for Texas A&M to get perhaps their stiffest challenge defensively tomorrow when Les Miles and the LSU Tigers come to College Station. With the quickness the LSU defensive line has, they can bring tons of pressure on Johnny Manziel, try to keep him hemmed in on the inside where they can do their best work. The only thing that can stop Manziel is himself. Once aqga ...
"Done an even better job at South Carolina"? I'm sorry but Andy Staples is a moron. Steve Spurrier actually won a championship at Florida and dominated the SEC for a long time as well. He has done neither at the lesser known of the USCs. I know ignorant writers are always looking for a story, even if they have to manufacture one, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.
South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore did not practice Wednesday because of a bruised hip and Coach Steve Spurrier says his junior star might not start Saturday against No. 3 Florida.
South Carolina could be without the services of Marcus Lattimore when they take on Florida Saturday, Steve Spurrier said.
Well, Florida is in the BCS... I certainly did not expect that this year. I thought it was going to be a "as long as we beat Florida State year". :) I will have mixed feelings when Florida plays South Carolina this weekend--- Cause I want the Gators to win, but I want Steve Spurrier to win too. such a hard weekend ahead!
No. 3/4 Florida (6-0, 5-0 SEC) returns to The Swamp to face No. 9/8 South Carolina (6-1, 4-1 SEC) on Saturday afternoon. For the sixth time this season, UF will play in front of a nationally-televised audience, this time with a 3:30 p.m. kickoff on CBS. Florida will be making its 35th appearance on ESPN’s College GameDay, a figure that leads the nation. This will be the program’s first appearance in Gainesville since Nov. 28, 2009, a 37-10 Florida victory over Florida State. UF has already appeared twice on the program this season in consecutive weeks, a 20-17 win over Texas A&M in College Station on Sept. 8 and a 37-20 victory over No. 23 Tennessee on Sept. 15 in Knoxville. The Gators beat Vanderbilt for the 22nd-consecutive time last weekend, winning 31-17. Jeff Driskel rushed for 177 yards, the most in school history by a Florida quarterback, and scored three touchdowns. South Carolina dropped its first game of the season last weekend, losing 23-21 at No. 9 LSU. For the first time in the series, bo ...
Steve, tell us how you really feel. “The SEC is hard, man. We are really good but we have to travel to play in front of 100,000 Swamp People who still think it’s a good idea to live in Louisiana. Needless to say it’s a rowdy kind of human. It’s not like playing in front of 35,000 current and future bank VP’s at Wake Forest like those pin the ACC.” – Steve Spurrier, Head Coach, South Carolina
I am officially torn. This week comes around once a year... and it's always difficult... but this year... with so much on the line for both sides... it simply makes me that much more torn. Thanks to my parents... I have been a Gator Football fan since birth. At the same time, Steve Spurrier... is my favorite coach of All-Time in any sport (and if you know Florida Football, you know that the program wouldnt be close to the perennial National Contender that is is today without the Head Ball Coach). South Carolina vs. Florida. Who do I cheer for? Where does my allegiance stand? This week will be tough.
Bold Prediction of the week: Three teams in the BCS top 5 will fall this coming weekend, No 4 Kansas State will fall to West Virginia in Morgantown. Reasoning: the wildcats haven't faced anyone really tough up to this point other than Oklahoma, and the Wildcats just don't seem like they have the kind of defense that can handle Geno Smith. Final Score: WVU 41 KSU 31. Our second upset of the bracket is South Carolina and the 'Ol Ball Coach going into the Swamp and stomping the Gators. How Florida got to be number two with their strength of schedule up to this point is beyond me, like KSU, the Gators have only faced one really tough opponent up to this point, LSU. Oh and don't tell me that Texas A&M is a great victory, They only beat Louisiana Tech by two this past weekend and their soft schedule up to now has inflated their win total, LSU will expose them this weekend. Steve Spurrier will go into his old stomping grounds and emerge with a victory USC 34 UF 10. Our third upset is Arizona State over Oregon. ...
Connor Shaw and Steve Spurrier sold out all of South Carolina. What kind of play calling was that. The worst I've seen. Before half he admitted He been calling terrible plays. In Big games Spurrier always choke. Bad quaterback play. Go Gamecocks baseball!! (paid for by C.J.S)
Steve Spurrier will not let Les Miles out coach him. I hope South Carolina bust that *** None of em gone beat Alabama though. TIDE
Note to Steve Spurrier: FACT: Clemson's Death Valley was the first Death Valley. FACT: LSU's Death Valley is actually supposed to be "Deaf Valley." FACT/OPINION: South Carolina's traditions are mostly manufactured and the one's they have produced are generally abandoned as soon as arise. Most of what they do now has only arisen in the last 10 years. FACT: Lou Holtz tried to change the South Carolina's State Motto and finally...FACT: None of the reasons I don't like the USC football program have nothing to do with Clemson and all to do with the USC athletic department and the university itself.
Gamecocks focused on LSU, not Georgia win: Coach Steve Spurrier says No. 3 South Carolina has high goals for thi...
As a counterpoint to the sentencing this morning of 68-year-old CFB predator Jerry Sandusky...the three oldest coaches in the big-time College Football division are all undefeated - Bill Snyder (73) of the incredibly entertaining Kansas State team, Frank Solich (68) of surprising Ohio University, and the old ball Coach Steve Spurrier (67) of South Carolina. All three are currently 5 - 0 with some major victories. Props to what the hipsters who like the video-game crap they call CFB today (140 points in a game???) disparage as "old man football." Well, old man football is pretty damned good.
So...I can actually for once say that I am ashamed to be a GA Dawgs fan. I was told then read multiple articles that before the game against South Carolina, Aaron Murray was informed that his dad was diagnosed with cancer. After the loss, GA FANS went to his house and EGGED it!!! because of the poor display. I mean seriously? Are you kidding me? We talk on and on about how Steve Spurrier has no class for his comments then go and pull something like that. Some people in this world are just down-right stupid. It's a football game! Slow your roll!
"I believe everyone in the state of Georgia should pay rent to Steve Spurrier, because he owns them." - Rece Davis commenting after South Carolina extended their lead to 35-0 mid-fourth quarter. LOLOL I was rolling. He is right though.
So considering Saturday's Georgia vs. South Carolina game there is only one concern for me. We are even on our record this season. We are equals on our weak points such as turnovers or the occasional sloppy play. You give me a Clowney? I raise you a Rambo, Ogletree and Jarvis Jones. You give me a Lattimore? I raise you a Gurley, Marshall and Malcolm and I am not sure what WR you want to throw at us but M. Brandon and Bennett have been amazing for Georgia. The one and only number that scares me is 14-5. That is Steve Spurrier's record against UGA. 3-4 in SC and a whopping 11-1 while at Florida. I have the utmost respect for Coach Richt but it would appear the Ol' Ball Coach has had his number over the years. We need this one Coach Richt! Pull together team and Go Dawgs!
Steve Spurrier: "I encourage our fans to be nice to Lee Corso. So far he’s right (that Spurrier couldn't win SEC at South Carolina)."
2 wheels off the South Carolina bus with loose lug nuts on the 3rd. The Old Ball Coach is one more turn over from a myocardial infarction. There's always the second half...but I won't be watching. If Kentucky wins this I think John L Smith and Steve Spurrier should start a Support Group. Kentucky And Joker suck. Embarrassing first half for the ***
If it were not for Lane Kiffen, coach at Southern California, Steve Spurrier, coach at the University of South Carolina, would be THE BIGGEST CRY BABY IN College Football, Spurrier walked out again and would not meet with reporters or take questions. What a Goober and a Whiner. He has such a cup cake schedule but I will guarantee you he will lose at least 3 games before the season is over. Don't like going against my home state, but just cannot support that Cry Baby any longer.
Congrats this past weekend to: (1) FSU, yes you are lookin" EXCELLENT. (2) GatorNation.anyone on their schedule has a problem. (3) Miami Huricanes! You don't have much, but you did it. (4) Steve Spurrier (USC, no, not the California team)...You continue to amaze the country with the state that used to send it's high school recruits everywhere but remaining in the state of South Carolina. (5) Jags.that was a hellava comeback. 'Bout time we get a break. Keep in coming. (6) Atlanta Braves.make us proud and keep doing what you are doing. (7) Savannah State.keep making a profit at the loss of your atheletes life and health. (8) Peyton Manning needs some Tapenade (quick!) (9) The Saint's need a hurricane. (10) Everyone needs a Ducati (just my opinion).
"This is not about the Southeastern Conference . . . This is not about the eardrum-splitting sounds of 80,000 crazed South Carolina fans making Williams-Brice Stadium shiver and sway all Saturday afternoon, . . . No, what happened to Mizzou on its maiden road trip deep into the heart of the SEC was a blunt warning of what can happen on any given football Saturday . . .But try that emotional no-show against a team as stout as Steve Spurrier's South Carolina Gamecocks — ranked No. 7 in the country and looking very much like a legitimate National Championship contender — and you're subject to the worst sort of humbling whuppin'." -Bryan Burwell, ESPN Yeah it's great to be a gamecock.
Just read this about the Gamecocks . There’s something special brewing for Steve Spurrier this season on the heels of South Carolina’s best campaign in school history. He’s finally got a quarterback and one of the best defenses in the country to back him up. If South Carolina wins trips to LSU and Florida, the Gamecocks will be a serious threat for the BCS Title Game. A potential Top 10 matchup with Clemson and an SEC Championship Game against Alabama may prove too tough to overcome, but the Gamecocks have the players to do it. South Carolina has beaten the Tigers three consecutive years and snapped Alabama’s 20-game win streak and reign at No. 1 in 2010. The Gamecocks’ upcoming affair with the Bulldogs is the most highly-anticipated matchup in the series in recent memory. The victor, in my opinion, will win the East and perhaps something more. Don’t be surprised if Jadeveon Clowney starts getting some Heisman love in November if the Gamecocks are still undefeated.
Well its time to choose between UK and South Carolina. Hm. Steve Spurrier. South Carolina's run game -Lattimer. South Carolia's qb good in the decision making of Connor Shaw. The gamecocks kick off return and punt return- this guy is ridiculous. My prediction -UK 10 -south Carolina 48. UK cant stop the outside the end short pass game and speed of the carolina receivers who also double as running backs at times. 2 touchdowns on blown special teams coverage. Its only gonna get worse folks. Spurrier WILL run up the score.

Missouri faces the old ball coach,Steve Spurrier again,when the Tigers go to South Carolina to play the Gamecocks on Saturday afternoon on CBS.In the schools' previous meetings,the Tigers,led by junior quarterback Phil Bradley,beat South Carolina,24-14,in the 1979 Hall of Fame Bowl.The Gamecocks featured the 1980 Heisman Trophy winner,George Rogers,who beat out Pittsburgh's Hugh Green and Georgia's Herschel Walker that year.Then,in the 2005 Independence Bowl,Mizzou,under the guidance of Brad Smith,in his last college game,roared back from a 21 point deficit,to shock Sidney Rice and the Gamecocks,38-31.Smith passed for 282 yards and rushed for 150,accounting for 432 of the Tigers' 504 yards of total offense.
South Carolina's Steve Spurrier says quarterback Connor Shaw will start Saturday when the seventh-ranked Gamecocks play Missouri.
South Carolina won’t have one of its top players on the defensive side of the ball for the “Battle of Columbia,” but the Gamecocks will have a starter back on the other side of the ball. Head Coach Steve Spurrier confirmed Tuesday that Connor Shaw is doing “fine” and will be under center when USC…
Congrats to Steve Spurrier on his 200th win at The University of South Carolina. And congrats to Marcus Lattimore for breaking the rushing record.

Congrads to Rich Rodriguez ova in Arizona.I knew he was a good coach.Michigan fired him w/o giving Jim a chance to turn the program around.now he has Arizona ranked in top 20 w/no recruiting class under his belt..he put WVU on the map..watch what he builds at Arizona.I hope south Carolina gets him when Steve Spurrier retires!!
Steve Spurrier hasn't given up on No. 9 South Carolina hitting a few passes, no matter how good the Gamecocks look running the ball or how much Connor Shaw's right arm might hurt.

The old ball coach: "Steven O Spurrier" keeps on having Quarterback problems? It's safe to say that the South Carolina Gamecocks have had their fair share of issues at the quarterback position over the last few years. Tanner McEvoy added more stress for head Coach Steve Spurrier and quarterbacks coach G.A. Mangus to deal with. McEvoy was arrested in Charlotte, N.C., over the weekend for speeding and driving after consuming under the age of 21, according to the Associated Press. He was released Sunday on $250 bond. The latter charge is different from a DUI in that state law prohibits minors from operating a vehicle with any amount of alcohol in their system. South Carolina's team policy mandated that McEvoy be immediately suspended. With Connor Shaw entrenched as the starter for the Gamecocks, McEvoy wasn't likely to see the field in 2012. But the 6'6", 209-pound redshirt freshman was expected to battle Dylan Thompson, Andrew Clifford and Seth Strickland for the role as Shaw's primary backup.

not intended to offend or upset my South Carolina friends, but would it be POSSIBLE for Steve Spurrier to be any bigger a**? His comments at SEC Media Days were totally uncalled for. Seems he needs to take care of his own business and stop worrying about all the other SEC teams! What a turd.

Staley gets a raise, Spurrier enhanced bonus South Carolina women's basketball coach Dawn Staley got a $50,000 raise for reaching the NCAA tournament's round of 16 while football Coach Steve Spurrier had his contract bonus' enhanced. Staley looking to build on team's success Dawn Staley's happy to have the summer free to focus on what she loves best - making the South Carolina women's basketball team better. The contract provisions were approved Friday by the university's board of trustees. Staley's base salary rose from $250,000 to $300,000, making her total contract about $725,000 a year through 2016. Staley also had her buyout cut in half from $400,000 to $200,000 should she leave the Gamecocks. Spurrier's old agreement included bonuses for winning 9, 10, 11 and 12 games. However, he could collect only the one he reached. The New Deal allows Spurrier's bonuses to add up as the Gamecocks add victories. Spurrier's team won a program-record 11 games last year Spurrier's contract expires after the 2013 se ...
Clemson fans are talking about how the Carolina baseball team and the Carolina fans are "racist" because of the comments made to Arizona's Asian player. First of all the stadium was full of fans other than just Carolina. Yeah the fans who did say things of that nature to him were wrong but for people to say that Carolina fans are racist and things of that nature is ridiculous. Sorry we went 2-3 in the National Championship in the last 3 years. I didn't see any Clemson fans say anything about when Dabo Sweeny made himself look dumb when he falsely accused Steve Spurrier of making comments about Clemson and not only embarrassed Clemson University but Clemson fans and the entire state of South Carolina. So when you Clemson fans become perfect then you can talk about what SOME Carolina fans say.
Not a particularly big Arizona fan but they are not South Carolina. They do not employ Steve Spurrier. They are not from the SEC. They have three Las Vegas kids on their roster. Go Cats.

A quarterback prospect for the future to keep a close eye on where South Carolina is concerned is Atlanta (Ga.) Pace Academy’s Kevin Johnson. I understand the class of 2015 blew the South Carolina coaches away with his grasp of the passing game at such a young age. His father was a Gamecock player as well, so there are some strong family ties working in South Carolina’s favor. He’s currently 6-foot, 160 pounds, but he projects to grow over the course of the next couple of years. South Carolina has positioned themselves to be a major factor Delray Beach (Fla.) American Heritage running back Greg Bryant. I don’t expect him to make a final decision until sometime in late January or early February, but I do think the Gamecocks have substantial staying power with him. Gamecock head Coach Steve Spurrier is personally involved with Bryant’s recruitment, and I hear both Bryant and his father have taken a liking to Spurrier and his coaching style. Certainly Oklahoma will do everything they can to keep hi ...
You would think as Steve Spurrier gets further into his career at South Carolina, that the aerial attack would get better and better. Well, the run game has taken over the past two seasons thanks to a guy named Marcus Lattimore...
. South Carolina: A healthy Marcus Lattimore (knee) at RB makes South Carolina an even better contender for the SEC East crown. His status is uncertain, but the pieces around him are pretty impressive. Quarterback Connor Shaw had an impressive spring, and looks ready to be the passer Coach Steve Spurrier wants him to be. The defense is once again stacked, especially up front with ends Jadeveon Clowney and Devin Taylor. There are questions in the secondary, with two new, young starters in Victor Hampton (cornerback) and Brison Williams (safety), while senior Akeem Auguste returns after missing last season with a foot injury. Still, Spurrier is chirping about his SEC counterparts, so you know he thinks he's got a good team this year.

Gamecocks eye these players : SEC South Carolina vamped up its recruiting efforts with three April commitments, giving Steve Spurrier six in the class of 2013. Dillon (S.C.) stalwart Bryce King was one of two pledges from the Gamecocks' Spring Game, and should immediately bolster the offensive line upon his arrival to campus (he's the nation's No. 3 center). Following three-star athlete Jasper Sasser's commitment, all eyes turn to Rivals250 pro-style quarterback Connor Mitch. Mitch has made two visits to Columbia over the past month and recently named the Gamecocks his leader. He is one of only three quarterbacks they've offered thus far, and -- by all appearances -- is the program's highest priority target. Mitch is expected to name his top five soon, and LSU and North Carolina also seem to be in the running. But the smart money, at least for now, may be on Spurrier. For more recruiting coverage, visit the Rivals.com football recruiting hub.
