USC coach Steve Spurrier wasn’t scheduled to talk with the media Monday night after practice, but he came over to offer up some “quotes”, and perhaps a message to a trio of players. Jadeveon Clowney missed practice with a shoulder injury and Bruce Ellington and Damiere Byrd both were out with hamstring injuries.
Spurrier said right now the three could miss the opening game against North Carolina if they don’t get healthy. Asked if he was sending a message to the players thru the media, Spurrier said first to talk to them, then as he was walking away from the media horde, he said he would handle it (whatever that means).
Here are the comments of Spurrier, LB coach Kirk Botkin and LB Marquise Roberts following Monday night’s practice.
