Steve Spurrier still undecided on South Carolina’s starting QB
After a 52-20 beating at the hands of UGA on Saturday, it appears South Carolina still doesn’t have a solution for its problems at quarterback.
Coach Steve Spurrier says both of the quarterbacks who played against Georgia –junior Perry Orth and freshman Lorenzo Nunez — will prepare for South Carolina’s game with Central Florida as if they are the starter.
“We’ll have both of them ready to go and see how it plays out,” Spurrier said, according to Josh Kendall of The State.
Orth, a former walk-on, completed six of his 17 passes for 66 yards. Nunez went 4-for-5, but only gained 18 yards through the air, and added 76 yards on the ground.
Connor Mitch, who began the season as South Carolina’s starter before being sidelined with a separated shoulder, will likely be out a few more weeks before returning to the field. He’s also been dealing with internal bleeding after suffering a hip pointer in week one against North Carolina.
Spurrier on Connor Mitch: Getting a little bit better, the blood infection is under control. Won't be ready for 2-3 weeks.
