Gamecocks’ Spurrier confident heading into 23rd SEC season

“We were celebrating, also”, Spurrier said. He said he didn’t “think we’re too far away from returning” to being a top 10 team, and after pointing out that no one was predicting his team to win the SEC, he said that “stranger things have happened”. Rumors circulating about a potential retirement were put to rest when he said he wanted to be at South Carolina for a few more years.

Spurrier was asked if he’s “comfortable” with low expectations that come with the 2015 season.

Though Spurrier said the quarterback job is a three-man race, the favorite appears to be Connor Mitch, World Health Organization threw just six passes last season as a backup behind Dylan Thompson. We’re not sure if Mullen knows much about Kanye West, but he’s all over the shoe game.

“There are two people running for president who are within a year of me in age”, he said, referencing Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Steve Spurrier wasn’t two minutes into his SEC Media Days press conference before he took his seemingly annual dig at Tennessee, playing off his March comment that fans in Knoxville were doing “cartwheels” over a 7-6 season and a bowl win.

South Carolina football coach Steve Spurrier must believe 70 is the new 50.

“Contrary to reports, there were no backflips and there were no somersaults”, Jones said. If anything, he seemed to want to raise them.

A 24-21 win over Miami in the Independence Bowl was the difference between a winning season and losing one, and the Gamecocks needed that final boost. To illustrate the need for another official on the field, he showed a play from last year’s Missouri-Florida game, when Markus Golden returned a Jeff Driskel fumble for a touchdown, but the officials missed what could have been a penalized late hit on Driskel after the change of possession.

Tennessee’s turn at SEC media days is later Tuesday.

“That’s exactly what I did”, Sumlin said. That’s true. We’ve studied the defense. So, we got rejuvenated. That’s when you learn the most about yourself, when you go through the adversity part of life.

Spurrier was also asked about player discipline after two Florida State players were recently accused of punching women.

Steve Spurrier looks on during the SEC media days on Tuesday. The most powerful conference in all of college football draws the most attention heading into the season, and this year has absolutely been no different.

Mullen said he doesn’t mind the seeming lack of respect.

You need to know: John Chavis left LSU after the conclusion of the 2014 season to become the defensive coordinator for the Aggies.

“Somebody told me the other day that I was the youngest coach in the SEC who has won four-straight bowl games”. My goal is to be the best QB I can be every time I step on the field. “We really don’t like those guys, so it’s a rivalry game”. “Huge win for ourprogram, for me, for all of us”.
