On what he expects to see from Clemson defensively
I'm sure they'll have a bunch of guys at the line of scrimmage to stop our running game and try to stop Marcus (Lattimore). We may need to throw a little bit more or a little less. You never know until the game gets going. Starting out against Georgia, we didn't think we'd run 37 times, and against Florida we didn't know he'd run 40 times, but we got ahead. We know we have to run the ball. That's what we do best, but we also have to keep finding Alshon (Jeffery) and these other receivers when it looks good.
‘Spurrier Rap’ stirs controversy | The Daily Gamecock
I'm not sure if I can adequately express my admiration for the gumption the creators of this video showed in sticking to their vision. I can understand the University's not wanting to to appear to "endorse" the video, but the last thing the world needs is another cheesy faux rap video. These guys took a great idea and ran with it. Serious kudos to everyone involved with the project for not delivering another "Party in the UGA."
Administrators told the students the lyrics were too raunchy. They were also concerned with the burning of the Clemson flag and the perceived thug imagery of the video, according to Thompson. The duo agreed to make some slight modifications but refused to totally adjust the vision of the project.
That meant USC celebrities had to go. With them went Cocky and USC's cheerleaders.
"They even asked us to cater lyrics about the school and possibly mention the Darla Moore School of Business," Thompson said. "...
In case you don't know the video we're talking about, you can find it here.
The excuses are out there. The game is at Clemson. The 6-5 Tigers will consider it their biggest game of the year. USC has a conference title game to prep for, just as Clemson had last year when it came to Columbia and left with a 34-17 defeat. Steve Spurrier often de-emphasized the end-of-year clash with Florida State when he was at Florida and making annual treks to Atlanta.
No excuses. Just win.

Has this happened this season yet?
Kyle Parker must also have a good game as the quarterback, and must make better decisions about throwing the football; his decision making has cost him a lot this season.

TE Owens down to Gamecocks, Wolfpack | The Post and Courier
Do I spy some irony in that thar Facebook status? I hope so.
Owens had set last Saturday as his announcement day, but none was made. He has not indicated when he will reveal his choice. "This is the hardest thing of my life," he posted Wednesday night on his Facebook page. "To run with a pack of wolves, or be with the chickens and be a (game)cock." Sources have indicated Owens has been leaning toward USC.
