That’s all the Head Ball Coach can hope for after his team has blown 14-point leads in the fourth quarter in three straight SEC games. He is encouraged by his players’ attitude though and he thinks they’re ready after the bye week.
Of course the questions turned to if he was ready to go back to his old stomping grounds, but Spurrier gave a classic Spurrier answer.
Spurrier is hoping his players are just as ready because he knows Florida’s offense is starting to click.
Coach is pretty sure his team might be cursed when it comes to facing opposing QBs and this week is no different.
However, Spurrier says there no pressure and he wants his guys to play some care-free football.
The HBC pointed out that the Gamecock pass rush has been alright, but really struggles on third and fourth down so that’s something to keep an eye on.
The Gamecocks are only 1-13 in The Swamp with the one win coming by the feet of Marcus Lattimore who ran 40 times, but Spurrier says it’s just a real hard place to play.
Spurrier’s team is having a rough year to say the least and that stat won’t help, but maybe some more Taylor Swift will.
South Carolina will hope to “Shake it Off” when they meet the Gators in The Swamp for a noon kickoff on Saturday.
