Steve Spurrier talks Clowney, Georgia loss


South Carolina Gamecocks head coach Steve Spurrier was upset after his team’s 41-30 loss to the Georgia Bulldogs Saturday. It dropped the Gamecocks to last place in the SEC East and gave the Bulldogs a huge leg up on the season.

Not only did his team lose the game, but two assistant coaches, linebacker coach Kirk Botkin and defensive ends coach Deke Adams got into it on the sideline during the game.

“We hashed it out. They know we’re not going to have any more of that,” Spurrier said Tuesday.

Star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney told reporters the Bulldogs’ plan was to run away from him and seemed very upset about his role with the Gamecocks thus far this season.

“It’s hard out there trying to chase from the backside, and they just took me right out of the game,” Clowney said. “They want to move me around, that’s up to them.”

Spurrier seemed to agree with Clowney.

“We need to line up on the other side (from Clowney) and put about five guys over there and anticipate they’re going to run over there,” Spurrier said. “That’s what we should do, but we didn’t get lined up well the other day.”

Clowney recorded his first sack on Saturday, but the Gamecocks’ defense allowed Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray to throw for 209 yards and four touchdowns.

The Gamecocks will take on the Vanderbilt Commodores Saturday night. Kickoff from Williams-Brice Stadium is set for 7:00 pm EST and the game will be on ESPN.
