USC coach Steve Spurrier put the lid on the Gamecocks spring practice Thursday. The Head Ball Coach said he was pretty pleased with the progress over the past 15 practices. He also made it clear what happens over the next four months during summer workouts will be perhaps even more crucial than the spring.
“We’ve tried to teach our players here’s what you do this summer…and I mean all summer long. “Spurrier said. “Some guys do it and some go drink beer all summer.”
As Spurrier pulled away on his golf cart he asked the reporters nearby if we were going to use the quote about drinking beer. When we told him yes he smiled and said, “Well, I didn’t name any names.”
And with that Spurrier drove off ending what has been arguably the most memorable spring practice in Gamecock history.
