It may be time to keep Steve Spurrier away from sharp objects, judging from a couple of quotes after SC’s (can I say that?) last scrimmage.
First, here’s what he had to say about Stephen Garcia’s stellar performance (14 of 16 passing for 150 yards and a touchdown):
“He was much improved,” Spurrier said. “We took Cliff Matthews out of the game, so he was able to get off some passes.”
Woo! Uncork the champagne, fellas.
Meanwhile, it’s been easy to overlook, but Ryan Succop’s departure has left a big hole in the kicking game that isn’t being easily filled.
… One potential concern is junior kicker Spencer Lanning, who is penciled in to replace Ryan Succop. In the last two scrimmages, Lanning made just four of 10 field-goal attempts.
“I’m not worried,” Spurrier said. “We won a game last year (Kentucky) and missed four field goals.”
Now there’s a recipe for success. Of course, the ‘Cocks only play Kentucky once this year…
