I think the Head Ball Coach would have taken any win as a good one to get bowl eligible, but it is nice doing it for the tenth straight time — a school record. It was nice to get a 37-12 win, especially since Spurrier didn’t need the help of his quarterback Dylan Thompson’s arm.
Even with all of the running, the Gamecocks still had issues with ball control and Spurrier was happy the defense was at least up to snuff.
I mean, he was really happy.
Spurrier was in a pretty good mood in general and was handing out compliments to almost everyone. He especially liked the beautiful pass from his wide receiver to his QB.
Your eyes don’t deceive you, I promise. Of course there were some bad plays and the players who made them, but Spurrier didn’t feel it necessary to call those guys out.
Overall, Spurrier is happy to get bowl eligible after it looked like it might be a struggle to get there this season.
The Gamecocks will have a chance to cap off the season against their rival, the Clemson Tigers, next week.
