Steve Spurrier doesn’t sound optimistic the day after UGA loss
College football coaches normally try to find some kind of positive to harp on after a big loss, but Steve Spurrier can only talk about what went wrong in South Carolina’s 52-20 loss to UGA on Saturday.
“We got to play a lot better than we’ve been playing or we’re really going to be in trouble,” Spurrier said, according to David Cloninger of The State.
There was little to be optimistic about in South Carolina’s loss. The Gamecocks passed for a mere 84 yards and rushed for 174 yards, but they allowed Georgia to light up the scoreboard. The Bulldogs scored on each of their possessions in the first half (South Carolina hasn’t forced a punt in the first half of a game this year) and finished the game with 576 yards of total offense. Nick Chubb rushed for 159 yards, while Greyson Lambert went 24-of-25 passing for 330 yards and three touchdowns.
“We certainly made Georgia look awful good. We hope to fix it,” Spurrier said, according to Cloninger. “We got to change a few players, we got to coach better.”
The Gamecocks will look to rebound next week against Central Florida, when you could see some new names on the field.
Steve Spurrier: "We will try our best to put a decent team out there, a good team."
