South Carolina-Auburn: Gamecocks at a Crossroads After Loss | Bleacher Report

In what was a fine offensive performance in Auburn, Alabama Saturday night, the South Carolina Gamecocks proved that they aren't there yet. The question that was posed though is, are they even close?

It's a fair question.

Report Card: Auburn | Spur of the Moment
Travis Haney may take issue with the above assessment of a "fine offensive performance in Auburn." You know things were bad when the highest grade went to special teams, and that was a C-.

South Carolina Has No Official QB and a Week off | Spur of the Moment

"I'm really concerned for Stephen Garcia and the way he runs with his head down," Spurrier said. "He can seriously hurt himself doing that. We've talked about it and talked about it. It doesn't seem to change him. That's the way he runs."

Spurrier shares our frustrations on Sunday's conference call. Haney takes the view that Spurrier may use concerns over Garcia's health as an excuse to play Shaw.

The health of his players is likely to be on his mind.

From the Desk of Eric Hyman | Spurs Up

The USC Athletics Department is a self-sufficient entity financially, drawing no support from the State of South Carolina.


I emphasize this because it has been suggested in the reports about these talks the governor is giving that there is a correlation between athletics costs and tuition costs. It has been suggested that a moratorium might be placed on new construction projects which could have a tremendously negative impact on University of South Carolina Athletics as we are trying to become a nationally prominent program.

Couple things here. Is the Monday after an incredibly disappointing loss really the best time to issue this statement? And second, will politicians ever stop meddling in things they know nothing about? Oh, right. That's their job.
