Steve Spurrier held his annual media golf outing today at the Cobblestone Park Course just outside of Columbia. The Head Ball Coach is entering his sixth year at USC and this certainly is going to be a big one for his legacy on the Gamecock sideline.
Steve Spurrier media golf outing press conference
Spurrier has had a winning season in each of his five years in Columbia, but he hasn’t had the kind of success some expected when he took the job. The lopsided losses in the past two bowl games, especially the doozy against UConn, have left a lot of fans a little antsy heading into this season.
Spurrier does seem optimistic about this year’s team. He isn’t predicting championships or dropping some of his trademark zingers (whatever happened to THAT Steve Spurrier?), but he did say he is confident this team will play harder and finish better than last year’s team. Clearly the PapaJohn.com Bowl debacle is still lingering in his head.
The only major news today is that reserve quarterback Zac Brindise is going to transfer. He’s hoping to find a school where he can see some action over the course of his final two seasons of eligibility. Spurrier said he hasn’t heard anything new about the Weslye Sauders situation.
The Gamecocks open camp August 3rd.
