“Sorry” passing game forces Spurrier to jest about closing practice (AUDIO)

Steve Spurrier is not happy with his offense in spring practice

By: Rixon Lane

Steve Spurrier has never been shy about expressing his thoughts when it comes to his quarterbacks.

As the Gamecocks continue spring practice, the Head Ball Coach is far from pleased with his passing game. Spurrier has referred to the Gamecocks’ passing attack as “sad,” “pitful,” and “sorry” in the past week.

The Gamecocks are hoping the passing game will take some of the pressure off the rushing attack, which has carried the offense at times during the past few seasons. Spurrier did say that the running backs have had a solid spring thus far.
